I forgot to mention that in my last post, my exe also has a registry entry added
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SpywareBlaster\Settings]
"TutShown"=hex:ff,ff
this will stop the tutorial when spywareblaster starts up.

You could add the registry entries for the IE protection as well but it would be a ballache to keep it updated with each new version or database

download and install alst innosetup and istool. then unpack innounp to a folder. here u put also the SpywareBlastersetup34.exe. after that u run %systemdrive%\folder name\innounp.exe -x spywareblastersetup34.exe.this will extract the files and install_script.iss. then u open install_script.iss with istool (http://www.istool.org/default.aspx/) and edit it the way u want. then save. last step is to open the install_script.iss with innosetup program and hit compile. that is it.

yes i have the the inno set up installed and i was going by zoasters post a previous page or so ago, and for some reason it wont extract thats why its saying it cant find the file on line 13.

im sure its not extracting because i dont see any files that come out of it,, i havnt tried to use your setup yet because i wanted to use that as a last resort,, i wanna try to do this for experience so that i can say i can do it

so my steps were
i installed isetup-5.1.4.exe
then i put zoasters files in the same folder as the original sw blaster setup file, and then i ran the StartMe.bat

and thats what im doing,,,

can you tell me what im doing wrong..
is there some thing i missed.

Here is a setup for unpacker that puts an entry on the context menu that extracts the exe (if created with inno).

@boooggy
I haven't done the final version but did the 1.4 beta. When I get time I will be doing it.

new Ad-Aware SE Professional 1.06 can  not be extracted.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

It is a wise installer.
Just use
setup.exe /x path to extract

yea, if the exe isnt unpackable, i use inctrl5 to figure out where the files go and what reg changes the setup makes, then rebuild...I have rebuilt close to 50 apps with inno...all specifically to my liking...one thing ive noticed...almost no setup programs use lzma/ultra and solid compression ultra...wonder why...I always rebuild inno setup apps just to get the size down...and another thing, the app makers include sys files for like every windows, or stuff that overwrites what windows installed, so I remove all those...the reason being is because i use ryans pack which is going to have the most up to date files...

Also, if anyone wants an app rebuilt, either post here, pm me, or I may make a new topic for requests...one note, the setup cannot be an msi...not that msi's cant be done, just really no reason to do so.

@lost soul
first u have to extract the installer. use this command: %systemdrive%\setup.exe /x %systemdrive%\destinationfolder. then in this folder u create another folder called {app} here u put the files u extracted. then u create the installer script using istool. or u can edit mine that is attached bellow.
i remove the languages and some skins.

The files like the icon.ico and side bmp are custom images you can specify under the Options - Appearance tab in ISTool, these changes and a few others are not saved if you extract the iss file from the exe so I always save mine, I have upped them here.

To cut down on size I have removed things like extra languages as I only need the English, and I have added a couple more skins that I have downloaded.

What other files, apart from the side.bmp and icon.ico are you missing?

Here is one for Spybot v1.4, again with a few tweaks and skins removed\added english lang only

No, I have not built spybot...but it cant possibly be as hard as some of the ones Ive done...seriously, try building morpheus ultra where it automatically inserts the registered stuff for you...quite complicated...in the beginning I just extracted whatever install i wanted to change, then wrote the iss script to handle it...used reshack to capture the image of the program and added that...now, what I have done later is add all the url's and some other stuff that isnt really needed, but I believe to be a completed install it was needed...stuff like the app version...this is a list of what all I have rebuilt

7zip 4.20, 911cd, a4dvdshrinker, abyss, bulletproof spyware thingie, carcare, ccleaner, crystal xp visual style, dvdshrink, easytracker, everest corporate and ultimate, freesmtp, grabit, idsuite, innosetup, iroffer, istool, ite, kiri, mailwasher, mirc, morpheus, no1vc, notepad2, offline commander, active perl, winrar, winavi dvd copy, winavi video converter, ultraiso, thegodfather, tauscan, spamaid, SHARM, quickbfc, and a custom bulk installer for these items...cdimage, cdshell, flexible renamer, inctrl5, keepass, adaware, pebuilder, shortcut, ultrafxp, vcdcontrol, wassociate, winimage, xpcleaner, audioshellext, avipreview, cmdcmx, contextattrib, cpext, foldersize, fullsource, gmailfs, hardlinker, hashtab, hijackthis, innounp, internetnotepad, keyfinder, nircmd, openselectedurl, purrint, sdeextensions, selall, toolbarcop, tsrsizer, vdk, and hwun (will be adding an installshield decompiler soon...found a great one called winpack300b)...and nlite...and before I get jumped about nlite, the reason I did this one is because I did not want to have to copy cdimage over to the data dir...also, I am not sure, but I think I added a custom icon too...but dont hold me to that...So those are the setups that i broke and created an innosetup for.

I believe I am done for all the apps I could ever possibly want to put on a UA cd...just waiting for someone to tell me how to after installing programs and on reboot after that, how to get the person to enter their own cdkey...Also, need to create specific uninstallers for the bulk pack...and spamaid needs to get their website up so I can add that and finish that one out.

I know what you mean about the reg entries, the hardest one I had to do was a Video kit for DVD ripping and video conversion containing :-

AC3Machine, AVICodec, CloneDVD2, DivFix, DVD Decrypter, DVD Santa, DVD Shrink, DVD43, Dvd95Copy, G Spot, DVD Guides, headac3he, TMPGEnc, videocalc, VirtualDub and html how to guides found on the web, edited then converted to pdf

Trying to find the minimum files and reg entries needed is a ballache, you can just back up the reg keys and keep all the language files but I like my exes to be as small as possible

use inctrl5 to find out what all ccleaner original installer puts its files...

I hear ya benners...I did one for dvd x utilities...had like 5 programs...thats not listed because it isnt on the dvd i looked at to make the list...i have some others ive done, but yea...dvd x utilities was a pain until I ran inctrl5 to find out that it actually changes files when you register it...like 3 dlls and 2 sys files, they did a good job on making it almost impossible to install an already regged program...but intelligence will prevail...like i said, ive seen almost every type of install and have been able to modify it...there was one I did for a Fastream product, but in the end, I think I deleted the whole thing...but it installed a service, so I had to figure out all the info for that...but yea, some are really a pain.

Also, DVD Shrink is being continued sorta...a lot of people use the dvd shrink backbone...like easydvdshrink...or a4dvdshrink...both those are exactly like dvd shrink...i have both because on one pc, dvd shrink would turn the screen black and couldnt see anything, so I had to include a 2nd one.

InCtrl5 my inno setup.

As for the registration, you can export the reg entries to a reg file, and import the reg file into ISTool.

Click on the Registry section in ISTool, right click and select import from file, just be sure to check the values are the same I have had times when binary values in hex format wont enter when the setup is run, and there are sometimes double quotes around file paths.

Another way is to click on the Registry section, right click and select New Item, there you can select the different hives and and enter subkeys and values.
