To block the subject Appshelp message, prior to the unattended installation of SQL Server 2000, Analysis Services, or corresponding Service Packs:

1. Copy / Paste the following to a NoAppshelp.reg file:

REGEDIT4

\[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\]
"\{ff25f0b5-c894-45f4-a29d-1bdd0c7926cd\}"==dword:00000001

2. Merge the NoAppshelp.reg file with the registry, or run regedit /s NoAppshelp.reg.
