My application switches

90 posts in this topic

my two cents...... :)

Having compleated my unattended disk already and frequently searching for switchs, i feel a place where all switches are located is a good idea. One thing not mentioned yet is syntax. Weather creating an Install.bat or Runonceex.cmd the syntax will be different. So when posting the switches for apps, maybe their could be a couple of entries showing the different syntax for the various install methords.

personally, if theirs a program i cant find a switch for, i use the search, which spans multiple topics, so it doesnt really matter if its in any order

but whatever floats your boat :P

What about Quicktime 6.5.1? I've done a search here and on google and can't find a silent install switch except creating a QuickTimeInstaller.ini file that you place with the full installer. Will this work if I include this app in GuiRunOnce section of my unattend file? Thanks.

Never mind, here's what I did:

ECHO.

ECHO Installing QuickTime 6.5.1

ECHO Please wait...

start /wait %systemdrive%\aig\apps\quicktime\QuickTimeFullInstaller.exe /qn

I kept the .ini file with the full installer and it installed silently at startup.

Alcohol 120% should use this switch!

ECHO Installing Alcohol 120% 1.9.2.1705

ECHO Please wait...

start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Alcohol\setup.exe /qn Reboot=Suppress

ECHO.

I have used this forum a bunch over the last couple of weks and it's been VERY helpful so let me start by saying thank you! my question I hope is appropriate for this section.

Does anyone know what the switches are for the HP Softpaqs? Either before or after they are extracted? HP has been shall we say less than helpful....:)

Thanks Pokeypup

Anyone know the other options you can have in the silent install of QuickTime 6.5.x?

My quicktimeinstaller.ini looks like this:

[QTSETUP]license_option=0

no_dialogs=true

registration_dialog=false

supress_speed_dialog=true

install_qtjava=false

install_qd3d=false

show_sample=false

show_readme=false

show_programfolder=false

install_qtinfo=true

[QTPrefs]

ConnectionSpeed=modem

CSMultipleStreams=0

Anyone know if there are anymore options and if there is a document or URL to these as I have to manually "get-rid" of the System Tray icon that appears?

Many thanks (and I'm sure my QTPrefs section is wrong too) hehe :blink:

glad i'll help for once eheh

go to this folder or similar on your computer

X:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\QuickTime

there should be 2 files, copy them in your quicktime folder and it will install silently and with registration etc..

problem there is still the taskbar icon, sorry for that..

Hey Star79,

Could you please provide more detail about the applications switches for Real Player 10,

I found out that you can run an install of realplayer just with a progress bar by using the -p switch after the executable. I have no problem unpacking realplayer and getting the setup.exe. But I dont quite understand how to implement the /r/f1"c:\setup.iss" part of it. Also, I'm trying to find a way to avoid the registration part of real player, which comes up when you launch real player for the first time. Is there a switch or reg key that I can tweak in order to prevent real player from trying to connect to its network for registration.

Thanks, your help is greatly appreciated

John

But it doesn't put icons on the desktop or in the program folder in the start menu. Is there a way to do this? Thanks.

Hello every1
I would like to know if someone knows how to silent install quicktime alternative *without* the mediaplayer classic option.
I already know that /verysilent /sp- will make it happen but that will install mpc too.

I don't know if the thread starter still frequents the forum, since their PM box is full, and as per the information given, is uncontactable.

Has anyone got a copy of the msi or instructions for its creation?

TIA

Has anyone other than me figured out the easy way to install their MSI progs?

If you unpack the SFX EXE for programs such as Java 1.4.2_06, Kerio 4.1.2, BitDefender 7/8, and PC-cillin 2002/2003, you can install these programs from the command line with ONLY the [b]/qb[/b] switch and it will NOT reboot!

And for anyone installing programs based on Nullsoft's NSIS installer (Winamp, CDex, etc.):

Just install it, tweak it to your liking, and save the [b]contents[/b] of that program's folder into a SFX RAR... You can configure the SFX to make shortcuts on the desktop and Start Menu\Programs as it normally would...
If you're extra savvy on SFX's, you should copy the Registry key
[i]HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\(program)[/i]
into a .REG file and set the appropriate command to execute that file.
[i]Run after extraction >[/i] [b]REGEDIT /S uninstall.reg[/b]
You could even take the extra step with Winamp5 and have that same .REG file upgrade you to Pro!
