at present i am looking into using windows update to silently install all my programs and tweaks, if anyone is interested, here is how to do it

1. create a reg file like this

setup.reg
n.b i compiled all my .bat files to exe for ease
```Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

```

save it in your install directory

```REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\Setup.reg
```

now instead of looking at an ugly command screen you can look at a nice windows update screen

n.b not tried a full install yet, but i have installed software using this metod and it does work.

here is where i got my source http://www.willowhay...uk/windows2000/
will let you know tomorrow how it all went

well I cant speak for him but I have a way to do this that is a little different. It laods it all through an inf file. But it looks perty and is somewhat customizable for the way it looks.

Do you think that you could possibly give us all a little rundown of how this works?
I noticed that the registry keys are incrimented at a value of 10 per key. Any perticular reason for this?

i am a little unsure of it all myself, to be perfectly honest i more or less copied someone elses work, however i didnt really understand what it was doing, so i thought i would give it a go with a couple of program's and it seemed to work so i thought i would rewrite my setup.cmd to setup.reg, it is a lot more work and you still need to have cmd scripts to do certain things but looks a lot better.

here is where i got my source from

p.s. did you get the pic ok???

Screenie from devil270975: Windows Update Screen

Looks very professional, good job! I guess everyone who did the batch files is going to switch to this instead!

Do you know if %systemdrive% will work, instead of having to write the physical drive path?

i did try it, but had no luck, but , i didnt really look into greatly, i was more bothered about seeing if i could get it alltogether and what it looked like, now i got it working though, i will look into that a little more, i know you can use %userprofile%

What program did you use to convert your batch files into executables?

using an exe or com file is a lot more tempromental than a simple cmd script, my advice is use a cmd script, but the app is called bat2exec do a search on google for it
