I'm trying to make nero 8 a silent install in windows post installation but USSF gives the next message:

USSF detected that the file you selected is a valid PE file.
However, it couldn't identify its type.
The header returned by PEiD was 'Nothing found'

Can anyone tell me how to make it a silent install in WPI?

Nero 8 has been just released so i think it will take time to find everything for it
and for what you asked i think u better post in WPI section because i think WPI silent install is different from standard silent installations

WPI silent install and silent installer addons are not that different, both use the same method. (this is the correct forum to post the question in)

Wait for the autoit script to get updated, thats what I use.

I have been working on the updated AutoIt-script for Nero 8.1.1.0 and I have uploaded a testrelease to the AutoIt section. I really can't do extended testing myself because my real system is down at the moment (motherboard on RMA) :(
Please give feedback as what to fix/implement in this release.

Features:
- Support for Multilanguage distributions
- Exclude components as you wish
- Option to specify a custom installation path
- Automatic search and install of the trial distribution (Nero-8*.exe)
- Optional install of Help File Package (Nero8_chm_*.exe)
- Optional install of Template Packages for Nero Vision 5 (Templates_*.exe)
- Ability to activate additional Plug-ins
- Optionally disable 'Nero Scout', 'Patent Activation' and 'Media Indexing Services'
- Update DirectX if necessary
- Several customized settings to choose from

The Help File Package is not available yet. Please make your own pack until NeroAG releases it (if they ever do) ;)
Script is found in my signature :hello:

Install Nero Burning ROM unattended with the original trial distribution files


Sorry to hear about your MB troubles. My system HD just died on me :(
Anyway your script looks very nice but I wonder if it can be used with other versions of nero other then the Trial version? It is my understanding that the regular paid download is the same files, or?

How does this autoit script work??

I must say I still don't know how to use the script after visiting that thread. It has lots of what seems to be excellent scripts but no noob friendly instructions on how it works or how to use it. Not that I could find anyway.

I guess that this particular script you just place in the dir where you have the nero install/exe files and run the script and it will guide you from there. Or do you need to download the AutoIT app?

All you have to do is download autoit once, compile a .exe from the .au3 file (so it can work even if autoit is not installed) and put it in the same dir as the Nero Trial Installer

Thanks ricktendo64 for the pointers for our new users out there. :thumbup

Keep in mind that this script is still a work in progress and I only recommend experienced users to try this new script. There are probably a few bugs in there that needs to be fixed.

This script may work on the upgrade and paid download version, thats why I need feedback.
Nero demo, trial and full are all same versions, just depends on your key.
Don't forget to read through the top of the script and make the changes you want within.

run the setup file first and dont install.
go to temp dir and copy the NERO13820 dir somewhere.
put this cmd file inside NERO13820 dir and run it.

neroinstall.cmd
@echo off

start /wait Data\Redist\DirectX\dxsetup.exe /silent

if /passive used instead of /qb!, it asks for restart.

finally, use 7zip or winrar to create installer and repack to the normal size.

hi rajesh.kumar

because KB884016 v2 is for win 2000 or winxp sp1 and winxp sp2 already have directx 9.0c i think
and like NERO_SCOUT="FALSE" can we remove other components too ?
Thanx

It's simply a batch script, you make it by heart ;)
Use Google for more information on batch scripting.

@TheCrowX : DirectX and the patch files need to be updated/installed before nero installation which is done automatically during manual install. This is not done when running unattended. so it is executed before nero. This is valid for all windows versions.
To remove other components, edit the msi file using orca. for details search the forum for nero unattended installation. its been discussed before for previous versions.

@xavier73 : open notepad, type the code and save as cmd file.

Hi,

Sorry, I don't quite follow it:
Do I need to execute the neroinstall.cmd RIGHT AFTER
I copy the file to NERO13820 dir, and then repack?
Or should I repack the NERO13820 dir first, and then
run the neroinstall.cmd later in GUIRunOnce?

Thank you,
t_kio

i supppose you mean "include" neroinstall.cmd and not "execute". Yes. include that file and repack. 7Zip must use neroinstall.cmd for execution.

Or should I repack the NERO13820 dir first, and then
run the neroinstall.cmd later in GUIRunOnce?

This will not work.
you have to repack including the neroinstall.cmd.

if you dont bother about the distribution size, you can run neroinstall.cmd (which you saved in the location where setupX.exe resides) directly.

if you wanted to repack and reduce the size ( to around 180mb ), use the link i gave before to know the procedure to make a 7zip silent executable. remember that neroinstall.cmd is the file which has to be called there.

@yadzil and Gorki : do u install immediately after uninstalling previous nero installation? if yes, u have to reboot.

this is very simple method and you just "extract" the installation files from temp dir and execute some files through a cmd file. i tested with several machines and it works.
what steps did u go through exactly.
Anyone gone through the steps, kindly post your response.

If you have corel installed it will happen that and, also if you installed any microsoft update without rebooting Nero will try to reboot.
Can someone discover how we can avoid that?
