ANyone know how to turn off the system tray quick pick thing via registry?

I know theres the /noqp option, but Im using a different method to install Winzip and need to have this turned off automatically.

The reg entry for it seems to use some randomly generated number and I cant figure out the rhyme or reason to it.

THanks!

I have tried this batch but i can´t get success silently installing, because it ask me for the location of the folder. I have tried deleting /noqp, and then /notp but without success, it usually ask me on the destination of the program. anu suggestions please.
here the batch file i used

cmdow @ /HID
@echo off

SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing application" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\066 /VE /D "WinZip 9.0" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\066 /V 1 /D "\"%Systemdrive%\WinZip9.0.6224.SR1\winzip.exe\" /noqp /notp /autoinstall" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\066 /V 2 /D "REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\WinZip9.0.6224.SR1\winzip.reg" /f

Exit

this is my way and works:

pack your winzip folder on a winrar sfx archive, comment
;El comentario siguiente contiene secuencias de órdenes para SFX

Path=WinZIP
Silent=1
Overwrite=1
Delete=*.*
export the key

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Nico Mak Computing]
and save it as winzip.reg

for runonce
REG ADD %KEY%\053 /VE /D "WinZIP 9 SR-1 (En)" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\053 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\Software\WinZIP\winzip.exe /S" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\053 /V 2 /D "REGEDIT /S %CDROM%\Software\WinZIP\winzip.reg" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\053 /V 3 /D "\"%PROGRAMFILES%\WinZip\winzip32.exe\" /noqp /autoinstall" /f

it tells me that it doesnt find the path of the file "C:\Archivos de programa\winzip\winzip32.exe"

i have done the following: at first i have only one file winzip90.exe, i extract it and i get some files .txt and setup.exe, right click on them, add to archive, create sfx archive and paste the comments on the commen tab. but ie tells me that it doesnt fine the path, then i see the directory C:|Archivos de programa\winzip\, i dont see any archive winzip32.exe, only i see the same archives (some files .txt and the archive setup.exe).
What am i doing wrong?

I think that i understand what you want to say to me:
first i have to install the program manually and enter the serial, when all is ok, i pick right click on the folder c:\arc....\winzip\, and create sfx archive, so when i will install it silently, it will find winzip32.exe in the folder.

Thank you colega

It's much easyer than you guys think

Install Winzip on a machine, then copy the folder "WinZip" that is under "Program files", to the install directory $OEM$\Progs\ and then type in or copy/paste these lines in RunOnceEx.cmd

REG ADD %KEY%\025 /VE /D "Winzip 9.0" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\025 /V 1 /D "\"%programfiles%\Winzip\winzip32.exe\" /noqp /notip /autoinstall" /f

You can also use the switch /cleaninstall instead of /autoinstall, then you get no shortcuts, for registration entered you need also add a *.reg file

just I put together some parts
of posts before that in this thread .
ok . this is a way who works here with WPI for WinZip9.0SR1 .
prog[pn]=['WinZip 9.0SR1 (silent)']
uid[pn]=['WINZIP9']
desc[pn]=['...']
cmd1[pn]=['%cdrom%\\WinApp\\Winzip_v9_0\\WinZip90SR1.exe']
cmd2[pn]=['"%ProgramFiles%\\winzip\\winzip32.exe" /noqp /autoinstall']
cmd3[pn]=['regedit /s %cdrom%\\WinApp\\Winzip_v9_0\\registerWinZip.reg']
cond[pn]=['FileExists("%cdrom%\\WinApp\\Winzip_v9_0\\WinZip90SR1.exe")']
cat[pn]=['6) Tools']
pn++
Step 1 : cmd1[pn]=['%cdrom%\\WinApp\\Winzip_v9_0\\WinZip90SR1.exe']
How make WinZip90SR1.exe as a new package :
I follow old advices :
- I download the last version of WinZip 9.0SR1
- I install this package
- I registered for verify registerWinZip.reg
- I like simplicity of @astalavista way in NIS2005 so
With c:\Program Files\Winzip directory I make a WinRar archive,
RAR format , Compression method BEST , SFX archive, SOLID archive , with comment
;The comment below contains SFX script commands
Path=C:\Program Files
Silent=1
Overwrite=1
and I name it WinZip90SR1.exe . whatever , is a name .
- UnInstall WInZip
- reboot machine for loose any trace of old WinZip installation.
Step 2 : cmd2[pn]=['"%ProgramFiles%\\winzip\\winzip32.exe" /noqp /autoinstall']
here is nothing new , just twenty minutes spent for choosing the right quotes inside.
Double quotes are very necessary there .
Step 3 : registerWinZip.reg is copy from the second post of @baliktad ,
just I remove the seven lines about ";Get rid of all those silly icons in the context menus" (I like a part of them)
Step 4 : Before run it you can look at the pathes above. use yours.

only for testing purposes , I use same files (including same serial)
on the other machine . worked fine .

I just tried this and it says the directory name is invalid.

That's because he meant to write %programdir% not "files" lol

For WPI create a directory in $OEM$ called $PROGS then copy a working copy of winzip into this $PROGS folder.

Then add the following line to your WPI

"%ProgramFiles%\winzip\winzip32.exe" /noqp /notip /autoinstall.

By the way does noybody knows how I can change the default icon for zip files to the usual winzip icon??

Okay, it really is %programfiles%. Just testing to see if you were awake! :o)

The normal WinZip icon is the first one in the winzip32.exe file. If you haven't installed Winzip, you could still access it through the file association. Go to Explorer menu, click on Tools / Folder Options, The click the File Types tab. Scroll down to zip. If it isn't there you can add it, but it shuld be there. Now Click the Advanced button and in the dialog box you'll see a Change Icon button. then you can choose any you like.

I believe you can do this through the registry under HKR where files associations are listed. I'd have to look further to get the exact key and values, but you should be able to get it from there.

Yes, that is true, AV, but I still have it on my machine. I tend to use WinRar and WinAce more though. WinAce will unzip multiple zips in one go with no complaint. 7zip is also good for the ultimate compression, but it leaves things in the context menu which you must remove manually. Not so good.

When I build an installation for someone else, sometimes I have to include things I myself never use (AIM or MSN messenger for example) because they or someone in their house (usually a child) insists on it. WinZip is a great tool and easy to use for most folks, and so it is often a good idea to include it.

While many of us here build unattendeds for ourselves, one of the best uses is helping out someone else who is daunted by the qhole installation process. Making it unattended takes a lot of the fear away. I do it more and more. I even create them for clients from their own media, so they can install if I'm not around. Things like the default homepage are dead easy, but make a big difference to a clueless client. So, gaining knowledge about programs we don't personally use or even recommend can be a benefit. Okay?

Well, it's not that complicated,

make an SFX exe file of winzip folder with winrar with these options,

;The comment below contains SFX script commands

Path=WINZIP
SavePath
Setup=WINZIP32.EXE /noqp /autoinstall
Silent=1
Overwrite=1


and what u'll need to run the main executable only,

and then or before you can register using winzip.reg:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Nico Mak Computing\WinZip\WinIni]
"Name1"="Username"
"SN1"="Serial"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Nico Mak Computing\WinZip\WinZip]
"ShowTips"="0"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nico Mak Computing\WinZip\WinIni]
"Setup"="1"

I read through this post and I was wondering why no one had posted the WinZip site here. They have a nice simple guide that explains all of the switches.

http://www.winzip.co...install.htm#wiz

Try that.
