  1. How to make a 7-Zip Switchless Installer

    I know some of you have been having a few issues getting InstallShield apps to work. For what it's worth, here are a couple tricks I have figured out that are working for me: * try it with and without the dash(-) in front of the f1 or f2 in the config.txt file (ex. setup.exe -s f1setup.iss) * try both the .iss file and the .log file, I have found some apps need one of them, some need the other (ex. setup.exe -s f1setup.iss OR setup.exe -s f2setup.log) * if you can't get it to work at all, use a batch file to run it. The trick here that took me awhile to figure out was you have to put the batch file in your app folder PRIOR to using 7z to archive. I know that is obvious for some of you, but being somewhat new to this, I didn't pick that up right away. So in other words, use this: config.txt file ;!@Install@!UTF-8! RunProgram="start.cmd" ;!@InstallEnd@! start.cmd start /wait setup.exe -s -f1setup.iss exit * if nothing else works, and your app seems to run but then nothing happens, I figured out a little work around. I ended up having to use this for 3DMark family, because for some reason it wouldn't find setup.iss in the same folder with setup.exe, it wanted to be told where to find it, so: config.txt ;!@Install@!UTF-8! RunProgram="start.cmd" ;!@InstallEnd@! start.cmd xcopy setup.* %systemdrive%\ /Y /Q start /wait 3DMark.exe -s -f1"%systemdrive%\setup.iss" del %systemdrive%\setup.iss /Q del %systemdrive%\setup.log /Q exit I hope this helps...
