thanks... so far, i have tried paugq's nsis scripts and used it to create a firefox 0.9 installer... so far, aside from following the rules he outlined at the readme file... i only edited the appearances of "0.8" and replaced those with "0.9"... it seems that it compiled to an *.exe properly. :rolleyes: i just hope that im doing it right. :)

all i did for mine, was add the files/folder in %programfiles%\Firefox to my installer, added a shortcut in start menu & it does the rest :) it makes all the other things needed, like %appdir% directory

regards

i see.. so firefox is portable after all, considering it's also distributed on a *.ZIP file.

Hi:

I have the scripts working just great with 0.8, but have one question. Can anyone help with where to modify the script to make the shortcuts appear for all users rather than the user that installed Firefox?


Thanks

Try this to relocate your shortcuts:

move /Y "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Start Menu\Programs\Mozilla Firefox\Mozilla Firefox.lnk" "C:\Documents and Settings\all users\Start Menu\Programs\Mozilla Firefox\"

Of course, you can replace %username% with a specific directory if you want. You may also be able to replace c: with %systemdrive%. Although, I didn't try it myself.

Use the setup.exe from the latest Mozilla 1.71
Once you've downloaded the above file, double click it to get it to extract,
but NOT install then browse to:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temp\ns_temp
and grab ONLY the setup.exe file.
Use it to replace the setup.exe in firefox.
Silent install of Firefox is then done with the following switches

setup.exe -ma -ira

no muss, no fuss. Done.
