Windows Installer Helper Utility

522 posts in this topic

Hello Benjamin,

you've done really good :rolleyes: work with this little programm, but i've still a little reques for you :). Is it possible to put more command-lines in each process, like command.0, command.1,.......?

It would be good for a few apps, witch start themselve after the installation process. I mean something like that.

[Miranda IM]
command.0=%systemdrive%\Software\miranda\Setup.exe /S
command.1=taskkill.exe /F /IM config.exe
description=like ICQ

Thanks for your help and good luck for your exams. :D

@pastl:

That would be a great feature. It could also be user to register programs through a .reg file. You know, first install and then register the installed program. That way you wouldn't need a seperate install option to register the installed software.

@MarcoTips: You are right, is fixed now. I messed it up with milli seconds and multiplicated it with 1000 :)

Good luck on those exams...
Thx btw. I've got exam in "Programming Basics 2" today at 2pm. But I think this one is no problem for me;)
The next thing someone is going to ahve you do, is try to implement a plugin's part of the program, so people can design their own...

Yeah, that could be a good idea. May be this will be added in future.

I removed the attachment to xper's post, so people don't download that first and then complain it doesn't work how the new one does

Thank you, you are right that is really sensible.

@pastl: Ok I'll add this feature next days, maybe next friday after physics exam :rolleyes: May be sooner.

Is it possible to install programs from cd/dvd with wihu?

Like putting this in the [Environment]:

IF EXIST D:\CD.txt set CDROM=D:
IF EXIST E:\CD.txt set CDROM=E:
IF EXIST F:\CD.txt set CDROM=F:
IF EXIST G:\CD.txt set CDROM=G:
IF EXIST H:\CD.txt set CDROM=H:
IF EXIST I:\CD.txt set CDROM=I:
IF EXIST J:\CD.txt set CDROM=J:

Someone?

Thx!

Btw, superb progie! :)

@PoloDude

Starting progams from cd\dvd is possible.

Just start WIHU from cd and it will search on the same drive for the programs.

You don't need to use %cdrom% in your install.ini, instead use a command like this:

[Miranda IM]
command=miranda\Setup.exe /S
description=like ICQ

In the folder where wihu.exe is located it will look for the "miranda" folder and start "Setup.exe /S"

umm....I was kidding by the way. lol. It's great idea, but not in practice. There won't be many people that make the plugins if any.

oops :)

This is also a bit exaggerated ... but it would make wihu more manageable in sense of code clearness, ... may be.

But currently Im dealing with how to find the name of the builtin administrator (you know, different languages uses different administrator names).

I already find a way to change the administrator name, currently im working on code to find machine SID to built the builtin administrator SID in shape of "S-1-5-32-machine_sid-500". I already find the registry key (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SECURITY\SAM\Domains\Account)

Is there a possibility to use some sub-sections?

Like when you have some "themes" you get something like this:

    ----Xtra Progiez ----
# Office 2003
# Photoshop CS
# Nokia PC Suite

    ------Codecs-------
# Divx Codec
# Xvid Codec
# AC3 Codec

    -------Beta's-------
# Visual Webdeveloper 2005
# Visual Basic 2005
# SQL Server 2005

    --- Xtra Filez -----
# Windows Visual Themes
# Xtra Wallpaperz
# Xtra Fonts

   -----Regtweaks-----
# Visual FX Tweaks
# Services Tweaks

text between the ---- xxx ---- like bold or something

And # is the checkbox :D

Just a Q, would be nice though :rolleyes:

Keep up the great work! :)

@PoloDude: This is currently not possible, may be in future.

administrator account name can be changed now with /admin=<name>.

This is new in version 1.6.1.

@BenjaminKalytta

Thanks for making your application Windows 2000 compatible.

And another thanks for implementing the command.x suggestion.

My sample for silent installation of the last version of Adobe Reader :

AdbeRdr6.ini

[Environment]

[Adobe Reader 6.0.2]
command.0=AdbeRdr6\AdbeRdr60_enu_full.exe -p"-s /v\"/qn\""
command.1=AdbeRdr6\Acro-Reader_6.0.2_Update.exe -p /S /v/qn
command.2=regedit /s AdbeRdr6\AdbeRdr6.reg
command.3=AdbeRdr6\ReaderSpeedUp.exe
description=view and print Adobe PDF files
default=1

and the command to launch :

wihu.exe /SkipRestart /SkipSettings /AutoInstall=1 /ini=AdbeRdr6.ini

Thanks to msfn.org members for silent switchs and reg files :

Acro-Reader_6.0.2_Update.exe

Jjaz .reg post

Adobe Reader SpeedUp (current version 1.21) see silent deployment in ReadMe.txt
