Hi there all,

Based on the method developed by ZileXa (original thread here), I have built a scripted solution that does all of what ZileXa outlines in his post and more.

UPDATE: version 1.2.4 now available, March 18,2005 (See Change log for more info)

How to:
Download the Nero Custom Installer Creator extract the contents into the same directory as your nero-*.exe and nve-*.exe files, read the manual.pdf and then run !MakeIt.cmd - thats it!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Change Log 1.2.4
- bug fix to winrar extraction command syntax.

Change Log v1.2.3
- updated post_config.cmd will all of the available shortcuts for possible installable add-on applications for both Nero Burning Rom (Nero-*.exe - Package 1) and NeroVision Express (NVE-*.exe - Package 2) Shortcuts will only be created if the application is installed...

Change Log v1.2.2
- some bug and typographical fixes
- full manual (user guide)
- removed the need to have WinRAR for extractions. Now will extract with either WinRAR or 7-Zip depending on your preference specified by command line switch [/rar | /7zip]
- cleaned up post_config.cmd file and moved the common user variables to top section same as !makeit.cmd
- updated 7zip command for compression - now using ULTRA compression.
- full documentation for all options available.

Change Log v1.2.1
- cleaned up more code and made the process faster
- added new command line switch (/nr) for Nero Burning Rom Only
- added new command line help function (/h)
- added new command line switch to hide post install dialogue boxes (post_config.cmd /hide) for total silient installation.
- updated NERO-rar.sfx for progress bar only on extraction like 7-zip
- added NERO_With_Dialogue_Box-rar.SFX for dialogue user interaction winrar archive extraction/installation.
- updated REG.EXE v5.1.2600.2180 with REG.EXE v5.1.2600.1106 (thanks Yzöwl)

Change Log v1.2.0
- Required ActiveX Control error with Wave Editor - fixed
- remove unwanted wav, chm and txt files - done. Will remove all except your choosen language. e.g. ENG.
- Uninstaller option in Add/Remove Programs - done
- cover designer error - fixed
- image drive - fixed (thanks to slimzky)
- Add options for either WinRAR or 7-Zip - NEW !makeit.cmd [/rar | /7zip]
- more streamlined coding.
- updated register.reg file - thanks SolidasRock!

Change Log v1.1.2:
- xcopy error due to bad syntax - fixed!
- Unable to load plugin manager - fixed!
- misc syntax issues resolved.

Change Log v1.1:
- NeroAPI error associated with Nero Recode - FIXED!
- Updates and bug fixes to !makeit.cmd
- Updates and bug fixes to post_config.cmd
- Added shortcut.exe & Updated Nero Custom Installer Creator.rar - Attached

ToDo:
- Add language support. - Am half way through this, however some more research and testing is required.
- Slipstream script to add nero to your AIO Windows Source.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Feedback and suggestions are welcome - no flames please.

I am aware there are other methods by other MSFN members and each solution has its place and lots of hard work has gone into them. The solutions here are one of a range of alternative - the choice in the end is yours.

very strange... have a look for the followiing line in your !makeit.cmd file
set rarIt=%programfiles%\WinRAR\WinRAR.exe

and you can test by putting this at the command prompt:
IF /I not exist "%programfiles%\winrar\winrar.exe" cls & echo it's not here

other than that i don't know why it would not be extracting, i haven't changed any of that section of the code. Basically if all the files are in the same directory as nero-*.exe then it should work find. I just tested it here again on my range of machines and it worked fine. mind you i have my winrar in a different location and therefore have to change that variable... but that is it.

Yeah thanks Felix can't exactly see why but seems to skip extraction & moves straight on building without error? of course without the prog files?

ok well i have not been am to reproduce the issue here... but i will continue to test... it is very weird...

AH! hang on a sec - have you renamed your nero-*.exe files? if you have this would be why... the cmd looks for nero-*.exe before it will extract... if you have changed it to say nero.exe then it will not extract.

see the line in the cmd

if exist "Nero-*" for %%i in ("Nero-*.exe") do call:extract %%i

Felix,
i had no idea Shortcut.exe was needed :lol: and i see plugin manager is now fixed, nice work.

MAVERICKS CHOICE,
do you have "nero6608.exe" exactly? i think it needs the dash in there, so you can have
nero-whatever you want here.exe

most of the time its the simplest thing that is the answer :D to be fair though, felix explained in his last post :P

AH! hang on a sec - have you renamed your nero-*.exe files? if you have this would be why... the cmd looks for nero-*.exe before it will extract... if you have changed it to say nero.exe then it will not extract.

Glad its sorted :D

Edit,
i know you can use 7-zip instead of winrar, but how would i do that? also is it possible to remove the following files from <Program Files\Ahead\Nero> in the custom installer;

Boo.wav
DingDong.wav
Nero_LS_ENG.CHM
NeroBurningRom_deu.chm
NeroBurningRom_eng.chm
NeroBurningRom_fra.chm
NeroBurningRom_jpn.chm
Nerodeu.txt
NeroExpress_deu.chm
NeroExpress_eng.chm
NeroExpress_fra.chm
NeroExpress_jpn.chm
Nerojpn.txt
Trumpet1.wav

If i can do this i think the final installer size would be 14MB :w00t:
Sory i`m a perfectionist lol

Hi Neanderthal,

Ok 7-zip option i am going to build in a command line switch that you can use to select between WinRAR or 7zip. In the meantime you are welcome to change the !makeit.cmd file to suit your needs.

As for the removing of the other files - yep we can do that. Will be in next build.

Ok lookin forward to it...
as for uninstall options, it would be usefull to have it in add/remove, although a simple batch that just deletes nero and reg entries would do for me.

Hi there `Felix`!
I haven't been on a Nero topic for a very long while... Didn't know people were so busy with this method! The script you are working on is great!
Now I have asked the original poster of this method (in Dutch forums) about Coverdesigner, you cannot start Coverdesigner from Nero Express/Nero Burning ROM, will give error Coverdesigner is not installed. (From Menu Start you can start Coverdesigner) I don't know if your script has solved this problem, the original poster said he knows how to and would post it sometime... so if he does I will let you know.

Also, I've read in vcBlackbox topic he had trouble creating non-compliant (S)VCD with this method... well I've never done that before... so don't really know how to fix that... if it has to do with Recode I assume it is fixed with your script.

anyways... if there are still some strange bugs, I'll see if I can help or ask the original man in the Dutch forums!

GOOD WORK!

There is no option to uninstall Nero in "Remove/add programs"

This can easily be done by a regtweak, will post when I found it.

About Imagedrive not working (driver cannot be installed)
Did you remove SCSI/RAID drivers with Nlite? That could be the problem. I will test this today. I also had Imagedrive in my package, but don't really use it... you might want to take a look at VirtualCD (made by CloneCD and original CloneDVD people).
But ofcourse the aim is to get everything working here... also Imagedrive!

I can't really help with Nero Wave Editor... I never use that tool, there are WAY better tools (search for the old Cool Edit Pro 2!!)... but it seems need some ActiveX thing to be registered...
