after uninstalling, try deleting the following, then restart and install :

C:\Users\Administrator\Application Data\Nero

C:\Users\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Nero

C:\Users\All Users\Application Data\Nero

C:\Program Files\Nero

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Nero

then use ccleaner to remove unwanted registry entries and other junk.

ok now, what i was asking is the method in steps "YOU" carried out.

just noted that if nero installed immediately after other KB installation, it needs to reboot.

Hi Rajesh,

The problem still the same. I follow step by step as you mentioned.

The message :

"A system reboot was requested by previous software installation (e.g. a Windows update). Please reboot your computer to resume the installation of Nero 8 Demo".

If I click OK, my computer will reboot, but nothing happened after reboot or the same message appear.

@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.

Yes I understand that. I made addon from CEoCEo script and that addon makes that problem during installation. In other words it (nero 8) does not install? :blink:

EDIT:

is Automatic update turned on? it would be installing updates or something. samething happened to me when i tested yesterday after installing fresh windows and immediately installed nero8 after ie7 patch(didnt reboot). after rebooting, all went well. so what i did was, after everything else installed, reboot anyway and call neroinstall.cmd

ok from Gorki's screen, it seems it may not be possible to install through svcpack because there would be other files already installed and waiting for reboot.

try installing through RunOnceEx. If it too doesnt work, from RunOnceEx, call another cmd file(ex:RunOnceEx2.cmd) which adds nero installation to RunOnceEx registry and call restart. so after restart, nero would install.

Hey CEoCEo, thanks for that script.

I get an error when installing though. Nero works fine, but its just the error that halts the install process, so defeating the unattended process.

Heres the error.

line 0 (File "C:\Nero\Nero8110.exe");
RunWait ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $TF & " /S" )
Cannot find path specified

Nero8110.exe is the AutoIt script, compiled if you were wondering. Im using the trial download directly from the website link.

Thanks again, great script!

@crawf

I'm aware of this issue, just waited for someone to mention it. :rolleyes:

You get this error because you search for additional Template Packages and the script doesn't find any.

Replace this line

RunWait ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $TF & " /S" )

with

If Not $TF = 0 Then RunWait ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $TF & " /S" )

to get it working with whatever settings you use in the script.

@yadzil & Gorki

You're not alone, I hope someone can solve this problem too. :}

Thanks for that, it works a treat now!

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
title Nero 8.1.2.0
echo.
echo Updating DirectX 9c Redistributable...
start /wait Data\Redist\DirectX\dxsetup.exe /silent
echo.
echo VCR...
start /wait Data\Redist\VCRedistSetup.msi /passive /norestart

echo Nero XML...
start /wait Data\Redist\neroxml.msi /passive /norestart

start /wait SetupX.exe /qb! /NORESTART RebootYesNo="No" NERO_SCOUT="FALSE" serialnum_userval="---your-serial---no---" AgreeToLicense="Yes" EULA_AGREEMENT=1

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

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

7zip installer : http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?...&highlight=

I can't find the temp map where nero extracts his files too. Can someone tell me where this is so i can put the extracted files on dvd so the installation will take less time.

may I recommend ImgBurn as a nero alternative? I have been looking for something to replace nero since v7 came out as horrible bloatware...

and two days ago I found ImgBurn.

ImgBurn really impressed me... its burns several times faster and it is extremely light...

The one drawback. I don't think it can make an audio CD from files...

to find temp directory, type %temp% or %tmp% in cmd prompt.

CEoCEo, with your script for Nero 8.1.1.0, the installation of Nero 8.1.1.0b is stopped on first

screen (Nero Ask Toolbar window).

I think that something is missed in the script.

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.
