Making Nero 8 a silent install

151 posts in this topic

@Tripredacus

Unfortunately my script is intended only to work with the trial distribution. BTW, you have to send a serial number to the installer, otherwise the icons will not show up as you have described. If you look inside Nero.msi with Orca, you can clearly see the demo serial number provided by Nero AG. In the "Property"-table look for "SERIALNUM_USERVAL". Try that serial number you see in the "Value"-table together with the script and see what happens. :whistle:

Greetings,

I have simply used a batch file instead. Here is the path and params that I use in my install of the regular version:

start /wait SetupX.exe /qb! /l*v "c:\windows\NeroSetupLog.txt" NSC_OPT="FALSE" NSC_DEFAULT_OFF="TRUE"

Switched used are creating an install log file, and disable all nero scout options but allow user to re-enable them if they choose.

This method of not providing the serial number places the icon on the desktop that the end-user can then type in the serial from the back of their CD that comes with their computer.

I'm actually encountering problems with the silent install. It works fine from a USB key, (actually faster than) hard-disk install but does not work from the network. I recently updated my installer for v8.3.2.2, which was basically use the same batch file with different files. I verified all paths were still correct also. But when I run from a network, I first get an error saying it can't find data\directx\directx.exe even tho I can manually go to it.

Should I be using full paths for the network install you think? Right now we are left with copying to the desktop to run it until I update the images.

CEoCEo,

Thanks a lot for your effort in producing this cool script.

And just to add, I have successfully tried it with v8.3.2.1 on Vista Basic and Home Premium 32-bit and 64-bit.

Hi kALPEPITO!

Try:

$ID = @ProgramFilesDir & "\Multimedia\Nero8"

That way it should work.

It is work with Nero-9.0.9.4?

Edit....

No,

Since Nero 9 is installed using xml language and, after playing a litle bit with setup.xml I manage to bypass a few passes in nero's installer. But still is not silent... it asks for serial....

and

Hi, I managed to put in serial number, but I didn't match how to hide and to properly set dialogs. Why don't we merge our works, maybe something interesting will come out.

at the start of the setup.xml file you will find tis tag:

<Prop id="SerialNumber">

</Prop>

put your serial number between

<Prop id="SerialNumber">
and
</Prop>
.

PS. The Prop and /Prop can be on the same line.

Not more, i can´t install it silent...

That's why we did this script in the first place. That way people should be able to install what they really need.

How are you installing Nero? Is it XP Home? Is it unattended? At what stage?

Then after pressing ok the 2nd one occurs.

You didn't answer my question. Let me clarify.

Are you installing at Cmdlines, SetupParams, RunOnceEx or GuiRunOnce stages of the setup timeline?

The second error typically occurs when you are running any AutoIt script at Cmdlines stage. This script in particular is supposed to work at RunOnceEx and GuiRunOnce.

Regards.

/VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /SP- /SERIAL="AAAA-BBBB-CCCC-DDDD-EEEE-FFFF-GGGG"

replace with your own serial and away you go this works for me no problems at all!

Hope this helps!

PS - Bear in mind that this is for Nero 8.3.6.0 Micro from updatepack.nl it is a far smaller installer since its just the burning rom and nero express.

Does this script still work with the latest Nero 8 that was release in Dec 2008 (v8.3.13)?

Nero-8.3.13.0_all_update.exe

MD5: B17B595EB97D71A40950CA0EEA4C0429

Also it does not look like the trial download is available anymore. The link in the first post just redirects to Nero 9 Trial. And if I go to the older products download page, it just shows an update for 8 that can be downloaded.

Does anyone have this working with the lastest version and what does it take to get it working with the non-trial version?

Also what is the point of installing the trial? Can it be activated with an owners valid serial via the command line parm/switch?

radix, thanks. I also add the MD5 hash to and filename in my OP

Now, I am reading some bad things about Nero 8 in the Nero forums and just wondering if I should settle on going with Nero 7. I don't think there is anything in v8 that I really need and it seems to be the consensus that the v7.10.1.0 is the best version so far of Nero as long as you do not install all the bloat options. But the same problem with availability of downloads exist with 7, see my post here

radix or anyone else, can you see my post link above and comment if you have any experience with v7 full or update working the AutoIt scripts instead of the trial.

Test CEoCEo script for v7 or use Acheron's micro or lite builds. I use Nero 8.3.13.0 lite made with

Acheron's SDK. It has a faster startup than the custom installation made with original installer (the files were shrinked).
