  1. 'vondaher' has become a recent popular german "füllwort". i noticed that the word is used more often than needed, so I choosed it for my nick to protest against this usage
  2. Hi, I don't know the above mentioned method xplode, but IMO the error lies before the cleanup starts. Plz explain what happens before! Grtz! vondaher.
  3. Hi, I use a tiny shell extension tool called Properties Plus and I want to install it silently. Can somebody help me? Note: The installation consists of 3 files (1 inf, 1 dll and 1 exe). Maybe this helps to find the way? Thanks in advance! vondaher.
  4. Hi all, I want to tell you 2 hints for easy making an unattended installation cd/dvd. 1) At first you can compress the installation files into archives (e.g. 7z). Tu unpack them you can use loops in your install.cmd: FOR %%i in (prog_inst*.7z) DO 7za x -y %%i FOR %%i in (prog_copy*.7z) DO 7za x -y %%i -o%ProgramFiles% del /F /S /Q prog_*.7z The 'del' command line is optional. As you can see, this loop will unpack all files in the archives prog_copy* into the Program Folder of your Win Installation. I made it this way, because I have the ability, to divide the files into different archives, e.g. prog_copy_free & prog_copy_share. So it gives me the possibility to make a unattended setup cd with or without shareware. The same happens with the prog_inst* archives, but in will be unpacked in the \install folder. This leads me to part 2 of my article: 2) Installation with loops. The most setup.exe can be divided into groups with the same install switches, e.g. NULLSOFT , WISE , INNOSETUP , MSI. So you can use this point to create an automatic installation script. To divide the files into groups you just have to rename the setup.exe with the following prefixes: _WI_* for Wise Installers _NS_* for Nullstoft Installers _IS_* for Innosetup Installers And here is the small script to do the installations: REM = Installation with MSI /qr FOR %%i IN (*.msi) DO start /wait %%i /qr /norestart move /Y TweakUI.exe %windir%\system32 REM = Installation with Nullsoft Silent Installer /S FOR %%i IN (_NS_*.exe) DO start /wait %%i /S taskkill /IM EvilLyrics.exe /F taskkill /IM QCDPlayer.exe /F REM = Installation with INNOSETUP /VERYSILENT /SP- /NORESTART FOR %%i IN (_IS_*.exe) DO start /wait %%i /VERYSILENT /SP- /NORESTART taskkill /IM ConTEXT.exe /F copy /y ger.lng %ProgramFiles%\Free Download Manager\Language\ REM = Installation with WISE SETUP /s FOR %%i IN (_WI_*.exe) DO start /wait %%i /s taskkill /IM stardown.exe /f And here is the file list of the prog_inst_free.7z archive: _IS_asciiartmachine.exe _IS_dvdshrink32setup.exe _IS_dvdbuilder.exe _IS_everesthome151.exe _IS_fdminst.exe _IS_idoswin.exe _IS_mpth_15.exe _IS_netmeter.exe _IS_pdfcreator_080_afpl_ghostscript.exe _IS_regcleaner.exe _IS_spybotsd13.exe _IS_VCDEasy1152.exe _IS_xnview174.exe _IS_ZContextsetup.exe _NS_evillyrics.exe _NS_installspeedfan417.exe _NS_qcd451.exe _NS_tgf_065.exe _WI_flashplayer7installer.exe _WI_rjhext13.exe _WI_stardownloaderfree_143.exe AdobeReader602update.msi CalcPlus.msi CDBurnerXPPro3.msi cladDVDNET_350.msi FindJunkFiles.msi ger.lng JournalViewer.msi mbsasetup-de.msi powertoys_Powercalc.msi powertoys_TweakUI.msi powertoys_Timershot.msi powertoys_SlideshowGenerator.msi powertoys_Taskswitch.msi powertoys_DeskMan.msi powertoys_HTMLSlideShow.msi powertoys_ImageResizer.msi powertoys_Magnifier.msi TweakUI.exe To arrange the order of installation you can rename the files (e.g. Context will be installed at the end of all _IS_* files because of the filename _IS_ZContextsetup.exe). Note: Don't use special characters like space for the file names! You can create other installation groups using the above mentioned scheme. I think, this way is easier to install than to make one or more entries for each installation file. It's also easier to update the setup cd - you don't have to care about the filename after the prefix! Any remarks? Grtz! vondaher
  5. Hi all, there are some categories of sw to install unattended with the same switches ( WISE NULLSOFT MSI INNOSETUP ). Therefore I wrote a cript to do this automatically. You don't have to put an entry in the runonceex.cmd for each "standard" program - just place it in the folder and rename it (like _WI_ for WISE or _NS_ for NULLSOFT etc.) and my script INSTALL.CMD will install it automatically: ECHO Installiere Programme - Bitte warten... REM = Installation mit /silent (klein geschrieben!) FOR %%i IN (_SI_*.exe) DO start /wait %%i /silent del /F /Q _SI_*.exe REM = Installation mit MSI /qr FOR %%i IN (*.msi) DO start /wait %%i /qr /norestart move /Y TweakUI.exe %windir%\system32 del /F /Q *.msi REM = Installation mit Nullsoft Silent Installer /S FOR %%i IN (_NS_*.exe) DO start /wait %%i /S taskkill /IM EvilLyrics.exe /F taskkill /IM QCDPlayer.exe /F del /F /Q _NS_*.exe REM = Installation mit INNOSETUP /VERYSILENT /SP- /NORESTART FOR %%i IN (_IS_*.exe) DO start /wait %%i /VERYSILENT /SP- /NORESTART taskkill /IM ConTEXT.exe /F copy /y ger.lng %ProgramFiles%\Free Download Manager\Language\ del /F /Q _IS_*.exe REM = Installation mit WISE SETUP /s FOR %%i IN (_WI_*.exe) DO start /wait %%i /s taskkill /IM stardown.exe /f del /F /Q _WI_*.exe And here is my file list: _IS_asciiartmachine.exe _IS_dvdshrink32setup.exe _IS_dvdbuilder.exe _IS_everesthome151.exe _IS_fdminst.exe _IS_idoswin.exe _IS_mpth_15.exe _IS_netmeter.exe _IS_pdfcreator_080_afpl_ghostscript.exe _IS_regcleaner.exe _IS_spybotsd13.exe _IS_VCDEasy1152.exe _IS_xnview174.exe _IS_ZContextsetup.exe _NS_evillyrics.exe _NS_installspeedfan417.exe _NS_qcd451.exe _NS_tgf_065.exe _SI_iview395.exe _WI_flashplayer7installer.exe _WI_rjhext13.exe _WI_stardownloaderfree_143.exe AdobeReader602update.msi CalcPlus.msi CDBurnerXPPro3.msi cladDVDNET_350.msi FindJunkFiles.msi ger.lng JournalViewer.msi mbsasetup-de.msi powertoys_Powercalc.msi powertoys_TweakUI.msi powertoys_Timershot.msi powertoys_SlideshowGenerator.msi powertoys_Taskswitch.msi powertoys_DeskMan.msi powertoys_HTMLSlideShow.msi powertoys_ImageResizer.msi powertoys_Magnifier.msi TweakUI.exe Does anybody use the same way? Grtz! vondaher
  6. Try this in the regtweaks.reg for the disturbing windows driver update: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DriverSearching] "DontSearchWindowsUpdate"=dword:00000001 "DontPromptForWindowsUpdate"=dword:00000001 Does this help? Grtz! vondaher
  7. Another reason for choosing 7zip was to create a complete freeware installation cd (except MS Windows itself vertainly). Therefore I don't wanted to use WinRAR. Grtz!
  8. Hi there, maybe I'm very late with this tip, but I didn't found any post regarding this topic. I use the following way to save space on my unattended install cd. You need 7zip program to do this: 0) Install 7zip on your hd 1) Compress program installers (into 1) 7zip archive.7z. Do this for all files in the $OEM$\$Progs\ folder too. (programs.7z) 2) Copy the 7z.exe into the $1\install\ folder 3) You need the following line(s) in the install.cmd: start /wait %systemdrive%\install\7z.exe x -y -bd %systemdrive%\install\archive.7z copy /Y %systemdrive%\install\programs.7z %ProgramFiles%\ cd %ProgramFiles% start /wait %systemdrive%\install\7z.exe x -y -bd %ProgramFiles%\programs.7z del programs.7z cd %systemdrive%\install (I don't know how to specify the target directory - therefore the long way around.) This works especially for .msi files and saves me e.g. about 60MB space and up! It costs some seconds during the installation, but saves a lot of space on your CD/DVD. This works for the install.cmd method. I don't use the RunOnceEx method, so there can be some problems. Anyone here who did this the other way? Grtz! vonsaher

  10. sometimes there is a need to make a .rar - therefore I'd like to have an alternative! Grtz!
  11. Hi there, does anybody knows a completely free alternative to make .rar archives? Like 7-zip is completely free for .zip's Grtz!
  12. Hi everybody, yes I know, there are some threads with this topic, but it's very hard to find the right one(s) for my problem, and maybe someone has a clever way to solve it. For my unattended win xp setup I want the following HD format options: a) if there are 2 or more existing partitions on HD1 -> just format (or delete) the 1st one and leave the other(s) alone. installation of win xp on partition 1 of hd1 b) if there are less than 2 partitions on HD1 just repartition it into 2 parts, 1st partition 10GB, and then install win xp on partition 1. Pls write down the most clever way to do this - winnt.sif , diskpart , fdisk ... whatever! Grtz! vondaher.
  13. Hi there, has anyone experiences installing Audioactive Production Studio 2.0.4 unattended? Does anybody use thos proggie? Gr33tz! vondaher.
