CutePDF Unattended install?
Posted 10 November 2004 - 09:54 AM
I was wondering if anyone's successfully automated the installation of CutePDF and Ghostscript? This appears to be the best free PDF creator option out there (no spyware, popups, etc), but alternate suggestions are always welcome...

It would be nice however if anyone has figured out a repackaged version with both Ghost Script 8 and Cute PDF.

REG ADD %KEY%\077 /VE /D "Ghostscript" /f REG ADD %KEY%\077 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\install\pdfwriter\GPLGhostscript854.msi /quiet /norestart" /f
You can use the /verysilent switch for CutePDF but it wants to connect to the internet after install so I just made a simple cmd file to install it then kill iexplore.exe:
cwnd /hide @ @echo off FOR %%i IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\win51ip.sp3 SET CDROM=%%i: start /wait %CDROM%\install\pdfwriter\cutewriter.exe /verysilent taskkill /f /im iexplore.exe exit
Run the cmd from RunOnceEx:
REG ADD %KEY%\078 /VE /D "Cute PFD Writer" /f REG ADD %KEY%\078 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\install\pdfwriter\cutewriter.cmd" /f
A bit tedious but it works.
