one more thing, what files should i keep with the msi? that data.cab presumeably?

theres also a windows hotfix that needs to be used.

For the activation you'd need some kind of auto-it script.

Those hotfix is not needed if u are using SP2....

Using silent install won't install those other exe file too..

so just use the MSI only...

only point is i need to register it... =X

You can try to repack Dreamweaver if you like or you can get InstallShield and try to create Transforms file. I repacked Macromedia studio and it works for me. You can try.

How repack Dreamweaver8 with 7-zip. Dreamweaver went down by 15MB - from 68 to 52MB without removing anything.

What you need: 7-zip, StartX.exe, Dreamveaver ,7zSc.sfx from 7-zip directory, reg file,licences files, and enough free space to do job.

1.unpack .exe with 7-zip or WinRar

2.create admin instal point

msiexec /a Dreamweaver8-en.msi and follow instructions.

3.Rename Dreamweaver_8.msi to Macromedia_Dreamweaver_8.msi

4.Add your License.mlf, Registration.mlf, and Activation.mlf into folder CommonAppData

5.Create 7-zip to pack all stuff from your admin folder

6.Create config.txt file with next code inside

;!@Install@!UTF-8!
RunProgram="StartX.exe /WAIT \"msiexec.exe /i Macromedia_Dreamweaver_8.msi /qn SerialNumber=xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS\""
;!@InstallEnd@!

7.Copy StartX, config.txt, 7zSc.sfx, and dream.7z files in same folder

8.Run this command:

COPY /b 7zSc.sfx + config.txt + StartX.exe  + dream8.7z dream.exe

where dream8.7z name of yours 7z package and dream.exe output name.

9.Follow guide from CLOCLO to import reg files

Works flawless for me.

You can use qb+ to get error and figure out what going on.

Here is the link to .msi syntax explanation:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/en/ad...Line_Syntax.htm

Not sure about Fireworks and Flash.

Good luck

I have been tryin to create a silent install of Flash8 pro. First i created an administrative install using msiexec /a "****.msi" Next i edited the msi in the newly created admin install. I then copyed the installer.mlf and license.mlf using installshield. Then i was able to incorporate the serial number into the msi using orca see the attached image. I have not tried a silent install but i will be testing this with group policy in basic mode hopefully it works. I did try just running the msi and did a next next next type of install and when the install was finished i ran flash and it opened with no problems without asking for registration or serial. Hope this helps.

Is the License data valid only for the machine the product was installed on? (eg. I install DW8 on computer A and get the license file, integrate it into the uA DVD... install on computer B... will the license file still work?)

Just a question, when do you guys start the installation of dreamweaver ?

I would like to have it at the T-12 point. This is what I have as installation:

<item display="DreamWeaver 8.0.1">
<execute display='Programma'>
<program>#SourceDrive#\$OEM$\Apps\DreamWeaver\DreamWeaver.msi</program>
<arguments>/Quiet</arguments>
</execute>
<execute display='DreamWeaver 8.0.1 Patch'>
<program>#SourceDrive#\$OEM$\Apps\DreamWeaver\Patch.msp</program>
<arguments>/Quiet</arguments>
</execute>
</item>

This is done with XPlode,

in "normal language" this is:

D:\$OEM$\Apps\DreamWeaver\DreamWeaver.msi /Quiet

D:\$OEM$\Apps\DreamWeaver\Patch.msp /Quiet

I've tried /QN etc. but none of them worked.

I'm wanting this to do at the T-12 point (cmdlines.txt)

thanks in advance!

jeroen.

Also, in the log-files I can't find something that something wen wrong! And when installing, I can see it's bussy because it takes some time to run it. But nothing is installed, not evan a macromedia folder or something.

Sorry, I meant /QB- there.

Could this be the problem that I'm formatting my pc to much, i test this on a test pc, I format it almost twice a day with the same dvd-rw. I think I noticed sometimes it got installed, and sometimes not! don't know for sure as I format so much :(
