this was a real pain...
after hours of trying every permutation of command line args and instantiation techniques i decided to do this the quick and dirty way.

install <your install dir with all apps to install>
+--powerdvd <where all powerdvd stuff is>
___|--cyberlink <actual program files for powerdvd>
___|--cyberlink powerdvd <start menu stuff>
___+--pdvd.reg <AAALL of the reg setting that apply ot powerdvd>


just install powerdvd 5 on your system, copy the program files and start menu files to the appropriate place. here is what i have in my batch file to copy everything:

ECHO.
ECHO Installing AdsGone Popup Killer 4.0.6
ECHO Please wait...
xcopy "%systemdrive%\install\adsgone\adsgone\*.*" "%systemdrive%\Program Files\AdsGone\*.*" /h /c /k /r /q /e /y
IF NOT %errorlevel% == 0 (ECHO FAILURE! Error Code: %errorlevel%) ELSE (ECHO SUCCESS!)
ECHO Copying system files
xcopy "%systemdrive%\install\adsgone\system32\*.*" "%windir%\system32\*.*" /h /c /k /r /q /e /y
IF NOT %errorlevel% == 0 (ECHO FAILURE! Error Code: %errorlevel%) ELSE (ECHO SUCCESS!)
ECHO Copying Start Menu files
xcopy "%systemdrive%\install\adsgone\programs\*.*" "%systemdrive%\documents and settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\*.*" /h /c /k /r /q /e /y
IF NOT %errorlevel% == 0 (ECHO FAILURE! Error Code: %errorlevel%) ELSE (ECHO SUCCESS!)
ECHO Updating Registry
regedit /s "%systemdrive%\install\adsgone\ag.reg"
IF NOT %errorlevel% == 0 (ECHO FAILURE! Error Code: %errorlevel%) ELSE (ECHO SUCCESS!)


i know that's kind of lot of stuff to wade through, but deal with it.

i have also uploaded the reg file with some fairly standard default settings such as autoplay dvds on insertion, 4 channel audio, and file associations. you will have to search through the file for 2 instances of cdkey and insert yours.

enjoy

here's the method i learned somewhere else here. my apologies to the original author of this concept if i forgot the link. :)

anyway, based on his example, what i done is this...

i cut the setup.iss into two parts...
1st part, i named as part1.iss which contained lines from:
[InstallShield Silent]
Version=v6.00.000
File=Response File
[File Transfer]
OverwrittenReadOnly=NoToAll
[Application]
Name=PowerDVD
Version=5.0

[{6811CAA0-BF12-11D4-9EA1-0050BAE317E1}-SdAskDestPath-0]

then the second part containing the following code. i named this one as part3.iss
Result=1
[{6811CAA0-BF12-11D4-9EA1-0050BAE317E1}-SdSelectFolder-0]
szFolder=CyberLink PowerDVD

DefaultSkin=Glow
Result=1
[{6811CAA0-BF12-11D4-9EA1-0050BAE317E1}-SHOW_CLPV_CLEV_DIALOG-1]
Result=1
[{6811CAA0-BF12-11D4-9EA1-0050BAE317E1}-SdFinish-0]
Result=1
bOpt1=0
bOpt2=0

i created a batch file (combine.cmd)that will determine the %systemdrive% or the drive where windows is installed and use that to place the proper parameters when combining the two *.ISS files into one setup.iss
@echo off

echo szDIR=%systemdrive%\Program Files\Cyberlink\PowerDVD>%systemdrive%\Others\powerdvd\part2.iss
copy %systemdrive%\Others\powerdvd\part1.iss + %systemdrive%\Others\powerdvd\part2.iss + %systemdrive%\Others\powerdvd\part3.iss %systemdrive%\Others\powerdvd\setup.iss
del %systemdrive%\Others\powerdvd\part2.iss /q /f

this batch file will automatically produce the proper setup.iss file that can install to the same drive as to where windows is also installed.

you can use the setup.iss file as you would normally call it from setup.exe of powerdvd.

the purpose of this method is that it will work when installing powerdvd aside from the usual C drive...

Why are you all going through this pain.
Its easy to install from cd/dvd :)

REG ADD %KEY%\001 /V 1 /D "%CD%\Install\PowerDVD\Setup.exe -s -f1\"%CD%\Install\PowerDVD\setup.iss\" -f2\"%systemdrive%\PowerDVD.log\"" /f

all on one line of course!

Everything can go in one .iss file then.

But when I use spaces in the line, it doesn't work.

I should use "\"

But I don't know exactly where to put them :s

Lo peeps..take it eze on me ere..i'm somewhat an extreme noob to this creating windows disks.

Ave been avin a lookie over the site for a couple of days now, avin a read of some posts.

I've got a pre-designed unattended windows disk that i wanna tweak up, add a few of me own appz to create a more custom XP.

I've made a silent install of powerdvd.exe using installrite...how do i get the batch file to call the exe during install, is it a simple case of adding a line to the RunOnceEx.cmd, or is there more to it?

plz....

installrite kit needs no switch.

for a batch:

start /wait %systemdrive%\install\pdvd\your.exe

for RunOnceEx:

"%systemdrive%\install\pdvd\your.exe" /f

Can someone tell me how to stop PowerDVD from taking over file associations, namely mpegs? I didn't see such an option during my ISS creation.

Could someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? Our office is only licensed for PowerDVD 4. I created the setup.iss file, but the silent install does not work. I don't get an error, it just doesn't seem to do anything! Here is what my batch file looks like:

start /wait \\server\winxp$\apps\PowerDVD\setup.exe -s -f1\\server\winxp$\apps\PowerDVD\setup.iss

start /wait \\server\winxp$\apps\PowerDVD\update\setup.exe -s -f1\\server\winxp$\apps\PowerDVD\update\setup.iss

BTW, the second line is supposed to put on the newest patch. But forget that -- the program itself is not installing. Is something wrong in my syntax, or does version 4 not support silent installs at all?

The syntax looks fine. You might want to try adding the -SMS switch.

-SMS

Prevents a network connection and Setup from closing before the installation is complete. This parameter, which must be in uppercase, works with installations originating from a Windows NT server over a network.

Hmm, here's what it says:

Doesn't that result code mean that there is wrong info in the iss file? Weird, because everything installed fine when I created the iss file. Here it is:
