  1. Is anyone successfully able to install WinZip 11 silently without the issues mentioned above? I have tried both the 'msi' version and the other method but I end with the same issue with both methods.
  2. I tried the script in a real unattended install and I am glad to report the installation went of perfectly, except for one small problem: $UN = ""; UserName $CN = ""; CompanyName which seemed to work fine with the Nero 7 scripts, does not work here and I ended up with blanks where there ought to be the User and Company names. I would like to point out that I had simply made the above change to the scipt myself, so in case there are any other required changes that were made by CEoCEo to make this work, then that may be the problem. I compared my script with that of CEoCEo and my simply just making the above change is not enough since the script requires further entries to make it work. Lesson learnt, in future be more careful. Thanks.
  3. I am running Vista Ultimate and I have problems with slipstreaming hotfixes for IE7 with nLIte. I use nLite only for slipstreaming IE7 and its hotfixes/updates. I have no problem adding the IE7 installer but as soon as I add the IE7 hotfixes, nLIte crashes.
  4. I use the following in my start.cmd to install WinZip 11.1 ECHO. ECHO Installing 'WinZip Pro 11.1.7466' ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\WINZIP\winzip111.msi /qr INSTALLCMD="/noqp /noc4u /nopredefinedjobs /autoinstall" start /wait regedit /s %systemdrive%\Install\WinZip\registerwinzip.reg This installs Winzip but the problem is that the first time I run WinZip it makes me go thru all the setup procedures. Any ideas as to what I may be doing wrong? PS: Always install Universal Extractor after installing WinZip to avoid the "Winzip only supports the 16-bit version of ARJ... " error mentioned above by 'coucou'.
  5. Thanks 'CEoCEo' for the script. I will get back with the feedback after I get a chance to use it. I do have one suggestion/request, could you please modify the script so that if one leaves the UserName and CompanyName blank then the default is picked up from the system. I think the following should be changed, from: $UN = "UserName" $CN = "CompanyName" to: $UN = ""; UserName $CN = ""; CompanyName Thanks.
  6. I have not tried 'Onepiece's IE7 Addon' since I prefer integrating IE7. Also since this has always worked for me in the past, I saw no reason to change.
  7. Does nlite work in Vista? I don't mean working with a Vista unattended DVD but rather working with an Unattended XP DVD but working in a VIsta environement. The reason I ask is I am getting errors trying to slipstream IE7 and it's hotfixes. I have in the past succesfuly used nLite to slipstream IE7 with updates to my WinXP DVD. The procedure I have always followed is: 1. WMP Slipstreamer - used to slipstream Vanilla WMP11 along with all the hotfixes for WMP11 2. RVM Integrator - used to integrate Ryan's pack and a whole bunch of addons 3. nLite - used to integrate IE7 and IE7 hotfixes. As mentioned before I have always had 100% success with the method earlier as long as I had been working in Windows XP. Now when I am trying to run nLite in Vista and do the same, nLite immediately crashes as soon as I add the two hotfixes for integration. The procedure I follow in nLite is: 1. 'Locate' Windows Installation directory. 2. Under 'Task Selection' I click only on 'Hotfixed, Addons and Update Packs'. 3. 'Insert' IE7 installer Build 7.0.5730.13 (IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.exe) 4. Insert IE7 hotfixes (KB938127 - IE7-WindowsXP-KB938127-x86-ENU.exe and KB939653 - IE7-WindowsXP-KB939653-x86-ENU.exe) As soon as I click on Open after selecting the hotfixes to be inserted, I get a message in vista stating that nLite has stopped working. Anyone with any ideas what the problem may be? Or is it simply that nLite does nto work in Vista just like RVM_Integrator? PS: I have tried both nLite v1.3.5 and v1.4 RC2 with the smae results.
  8. v4.45b of 7zip works fine to extract the updates.
  9. For installing add-ins for Office 2007 do the following: ECHO. ECHO Installing 'Microsoft Office 2007 Add-Ins' ECHO Please wait... ECHO Microsoft Office Outlook Connector start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\Office2007\Add-Ins\msnolcon.msi /q ECHO Outlook Personal Folders Backup start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\Office2007\Add-Ins\pfbackup.msi /q ECHO Office 2007 Add-in Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\Office2007\Add-Ins\SaveAsPDFandXPS.exe /q PS: You have to extract 'pfbackup.exe' to get 'pfbackup.msi'.
  10. You can use 7zip or WinZip to extract the files from the KBxxxxxx.exe files. From the extracted files all you need is the *.msp file, you can discard all the other files. Also, just to keep things organized you may want to rename the *msp file to KBxxxxxx.msp using the corresponding names from the exe files. But this is not required.
  11. I have some good news and some bad news. First, the good news is that the updates all got automatically installed from my 'Unattended DVD'. I simply extracted the *.msp files from the KBXXXXXX.exe files, renamed the *.msp files to 'KBXXXXXX.msp' using the coresponding 'KBXXXXXX.exe' file names and placed them in the Updates folder. Now for the bad news. The other add-ins did not get installed from the Updates folder. I think it may have something to do with the fact that they don't have a *.msp file in them. If someone knows how to get the add-ins to install automatically, please share the info here. Thanks. PS: I had placed the following add-ins in the update folder: Microsoft Office Outlook Connector - msnolcon.msi Outlook Personal Folders Backup - pfbackup.exe Office 2007 Add-in Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS - SaveAsPDFandXPS.exe
  12. Anyone have any clues?
  13. Update for Outlook 2007 (KB933493) Brief Description This update fixes a problem in which a calendar item that is marked as private is opened if it is found by using the Search Desktop feature. The update also fixes performance issues that occur when you work with items in a large .pst file or .ost file. Quick Details File Name: outlook2007-kb933493-fullfile-x86-glb.exe Version: 1 Knowledge Base (KB) Articles: KB933493 Date Published: 4/13/2007 Any idea why this update no longer shows up in 'Microsoft Update' and/or 'Office Update'? Since it is still available on the Office 2007 download site, if you search for it, do we need to still apply it or not? Thanks
  14. That is exactly how I thought it works, but apparently it does not. I have already tried putting all the 'update exe files' in the updates folder but none of them got applied. Based on what I can make out from a few posts in this thread it seems you need to have the updates in a '*.msp' file format. Upon extracting the 'KBXXXXXX.exe update' files I found that they all contain several *.txt files in addition to 'DetectionDll' '*.cif' & a '*.msp'. I am presuming that all you need is the '*.msp' file to be put in the 'Updates' folder. I personally have renamed all the '*.msp' files to 'KBXXXXXX.msp' using the coresponding 'KBXXXXXX.exe' file names to keep it more organized. Hopefully this shall work.
  15. can the script be edited to inulde the installation of directx if its not already installed.. ..please provide help on this .. thx Since DirectX is something that is required on a WinXP PC by whole lot of programs would it not make sense to simply have directx installed on your computer anyhow? I would suggest you integrate DirectX into your unattended CD/DVD, there is an addon (RVMAddonsDX9_1.1.7z) from Ryan on his site.
