4.1 Install 7z after extract the content of 7z extra to the root folder of 7z replace if necessary

4.2 Install OrcaMSI(default instaltion).

5 Extract the content of nero installer with 7z.

5.1 If you are use some security suite like Za disable or shutdown.

5.2 In the extracted folder we gonna make a batch file called Exec.cmd(make it with notepad or any other text editor)

5.3 Edit Exec.cmd and put this inside:

     cmdow @ /HID
@Echo off

REGEDIT /S NeroReg.reg
SetupX.exe /qn

Exit

Description:

NeroReg.reg content

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nero\Installation\Families\Nero 8\Info]
"Serial8_1201881472"="xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"

"Company"="Your Company"
"EulaAccepted"="1"

5.4 We gonna to search nero.msi it's into the folder Data at bottom of the list.

5.5 Edit nero.msi with orca now you gonna see a column with a list of properties.

5.5.1 First find column called Condition and edit what we want to keep and and wath we want dont

0 = disable

1= Enable

examples if we dont want keep NeroHome we gonna put a 0 in the condition column.

Enabled

NeroHome2FF8B816 NOT(C2FF8B816=1)

Disabled

NeroCoverDesigner 0

NeroWaveEditor 0

NeroSoundTrax 0

Keep The same features that Condition column in nero.msi

save.

5.7 Now, compress the contents in the extracted folder, including Exec.cmd using 7-Zip. The compressed file must be a .7z file.

5.8 Now, create a folder called Installer with the follow files.

-the module (the compress 7z file)either one in my case nero8.7z

-7zS.sfx or 7zSD.sfx (found in the 7z root folder just copy and paste)

-Config.txt

-Command.cmd

5.8.1 Now edit config.txt And paste the follow:

        ;!@Install@!UTF-8!
GUIMode="2"
RunProgram="Exec.cmd"
Directory=""
;!@InstallEnd@!

save.

Description:

GUIMode="2" --> Hide the extracting prompt

RunProgram="Exec.cmd" --> ejecute Exec.cmd in the nero root folder(nero extract folder)

5.8.1 Now edit command.cmd and paste the follow:

copy /b 7zSD.sfx + config.txt + nero8.7z Nero8Installer.exe

save.

Description:

7zSD.sfx --> the file copied from 7z root folder can be 7zSD or 7zS

Config.txt --> the config file containing information

nero8.7z --> the module (the compress 7z file)in my case nero8.7z

nero8Installer.exe --> this is the name of the final file you can named wathever you want doesnt matter but its has to be .exe

5.9 Now just doble click on command.cmd and it will create a sfx silent install of nero.

If you found a error or doubt post it.

Nice tutorial. Take a look here now.

I don't think you can compare that. This guide is unique!

It lets you create your own Nero Lite: a small sized Nero installer.

With the AutoIT script you still need the full huge nero original installer.

But Nero Lite/Nero Micro, the original ones, still have big benefits. Like the audiocodec thing. Nero messes around with your own default settings for playing audio/video. Thats 1 of the main reasons I have been using custom Nero since v6.0. And its also the reason I will stay with the original Micro (Lite is too big, and you can add Nerotools + Mausau plugins yourself... so I don't need Lite anymore, Coverdesigner would be nice but who cares).

Compliments to RTK999. Good to see new people are now spending their time to create optimized installers and also take the time to share.

Can You please upload done file somewhere ?

As the topic starter includes a part for the serial number in his tutorial, asking for the final file basically equals asking for warez as this file would contain someone else's serial number, which is not allowed according to the forum policy.

Yep you are correct what is wrong with the autoit scripts posted before, instead of noobs trying to unpack nero edit MSI file and then repack it. in fact better going back to nero 6 and using Ncab_211 i,e 25MB :rolleyes:

Hey i'd consider myself a noob with only one unattended disk under my belt thus far and id much rather repack a couple MSI's then use AutoIT. Using AutoIT is like saying you were to stupid to drive a car so you took the bus. And in your case i think it might be a short bus.

This topic is getting out of hand... :}

Everyone have their own way of maintaining their installationplatform and there is no right or wrong in any form of guide. I created that script so people don't have to recreate the entire package when a new version comes out the door, mainly because to save time to do something else. It's up to the individual to decide what to use or implement to their setup environment. I'm just preferring an always working bus rather than an old car that needs to be maintained to save my precious time.

If you are such a great expert in batch scripting, try to install silently Zone Alarm Free with that method and if your tiny car is still OK, let as know the method.

By the way, Nero 8.3.2.1 is out and waiting you. :)

has anyone successfully tried an administrative install from Nero 8?

that way we can reduce the siz of the installer a lot byt removing unnecessary files of components we dont install.
