silent installs for ac3filter and ffdshow

I waste so many time to find a way to make an unattended install on ffdshow, and finaly i find one. Maybe it's not the best way, but it's working for me.
First you have to copy directory c:\Program Files\ffdshow to $OEM$\$1\install\ffdshow (or your installation directory);
Then you have to export all the keys from the registry whre you find "ffdshow" (I don't thing that all of them are needed, bud don't know which are general, so I export them all) and make them all in one registry file;
And finaly you have to register ffdshow.ax with "regsvr32.exe ffdshow.ax /s"
So for all this actions I've add this string to my C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\command.cmd file
Here is the lines:
ECHO Installing ffdshow 20030927
ECHO Please wait...
xcopy "%systemdrive%\install\ffdshow" "%systemdrive%\Program Files\ffdshow" /e /c /q /h /r /y /i
regedit /s "%systemdrive%\install\ffdshow\ffdshow.reg"
regsvr32.exe "%systemdrive%\Program Files\ffdshow\ffdshow.ax" /s
I'm sorry, but there's no place to upload ffdshow.reg file, and it's not a good idea to paste it here, because it too long.
I hope this will be usefull to you, and excuse my English.
P.S. I've just saw that thre is an option to attach a file, and here it is my version of ffdshow.reg
Number of downloads: 104

If Windows XP is being installed to C:\ than Windows Setup will copy your ffdshow files to C:\Program Files\ffdshow
And only left to do is to register ffdshow.ax extension, and add ffdshow.reg to registry. Maybe this is the right way to do this, not with xcopy.

I have had no problems viewing videos with this codec and the config program runs from the shortcut so I'm happy

I was also looking for a solution to perform a unattended install with the fddshow installer.
I found this thread but the solution isn't what i was looking for.
And after some searching i found a solution.
The swich to perform an unattended install is /silent
So it would look like this:
This switch has the same effect as the Windows Installer /passive switch.
It's still not completely hidden but should be ok for a unattended install.
Hope this helps for other who were searching for a solution for ffdshow.

Disables the This will install... Do you wish to continue? prompt at the beginning of Setup. Of course, this will have no effect if the DisableStartupPrompt [Setup] section directive was set to yes.
Instructs Setup to be silent or very silent. When Setup is silent the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation progress window is. When a setup is very silent this installation progress window is not displayed. Everything else is normal so for example error messages during installation are displayed and the startup prompt is (if you haven't disabled it with DisableStartupPrompt or the '/SP-' command line option explained above)
