Making Nero 8 a silent install

151 posts in this topic

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.
echo Nero XML...
start /wait Data\Redist\neroxml.msi /passive /norestart
echo.
echo KB884016 v2...
start /wait Data\Redist\WindowsInstaller-KB884016-v2-x86.exe /passive /norestart
echo.
echo Installing Nero Premium 8.1.2.0...
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.

hi rajesh.kumar

is this for windows 2000 ??!!

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?

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.
