Already found the solution. i used the below .js-script.

function getWin(win, inc)
{
var cntr = 0;
while (!WshShell.AppActivate(win))
{
if (cntr==12) return true;
cntr++;
WScript.Sleep(inc);
}
return true;
}
var WshShell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
WshShell.Run("%systemdrive%\\Install\\Applications\\nvidia\\nvidia.exe -s");
{
WScript.Sleep(10000);//time needed by installer to extract its files
getWin("NVIDIA-stuurprogramma's voor het beeldscherm (Windows 2000/XP)", 500);//Change this according to your setup. just execute the setup until you reach the first screen.
WshShell.SendKeys ("{ENTER}");//hitting Install button
WScript.Sleep(35000);//time to Install
WshShell.SendKeys ("{ENTER}");//Hitting Finish button
}

I also used the below setup.iss
[InstallShield Silent]
Version=v6.00.000
File=Response File
[File Transfer]
OverwrittenReadOnly=NoToAll

I might have a much easier sollution. I tried it a couple of times and it works just fine. I have windows Xp and for all Gforce cards this should work.

First: Download the installation file from http://www.nvidia.co.../winxp_2k_61.77 and extract it into folder c:/xpcd/$oem$\$1\drivers\002_graphics\

Second: write pathname for this driver to winnt.sif (under [Unattended])
This is how mine looks...

[Unattended]
UnattendMode=FullUnattended
OemSkipEula=Yes
OemPreinstall=Yes
TargetPath=\WINDOWS
OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\000_Chipset\AGP;Drivers\000_Chipset\IDEWINXP;Drivers\000_Chipset\INF\WINXP;Drivers\000_Chipset\WINXP;Drivers\002_Graphics;dDrivers\006_Sound"
DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore

Third: yo're done :)

Much easier, and this way you also have the software from Nvidea

roel's suggestion is the recommended one to use.
You can use it for other drivers too. Moreover, using that method, if you don't have an nVidia gfx card in the machine you're using your CD on, the nVidia drivers won't get installed.

Its simple enough to be done by anyone.

Especially, for drivers, I also recommend roel's idea.

If you need place on your CD you could compress your drivers using 7zip (best compression rate).

And if you're using the International driver version, which is twice the size as the english only, you could remove the unneeded languages using a small script I've made. Open it in Notepad to see how it works.

i have a computerpark with about 250 computers i need to deploy the nvidia drivers to all these computers but NO screen may be prompted. I just want it to silent install. The above procedure doesn't work for me as the workstations are allready running and an older version of the nvidia drivers is installed. I know there are newer drivers but they don't work good with rhino.

Thanx in advance!
