  1. Firefox install cancel?

    DUDE!!!! I wish I could give you a HUGE hug!!!! Works like a charm man......... thanks a BILLION
  2. Firefox install cancel?

    This is what I have right now.... and all it does is flash the window quickly and installs nothing even though now the programs are not installed. If I take out the "if" lines it will install all three apps no problem. I cant seem to find what I am missing here. CLS @echo off TITLE ETC Computer Solutions Recipe Install ECHO. ECHO Over the next few minutes you will see automated installations ECHO of various sofware applications. The computer will restart automatically ECHO once the whole process has finished! ECHO. ECHO Starting installation of Applications ECHO. ECHO Installing Lavasoft Ad-Aware 6 Build 181 ECHO Please wait... IF EXISTS %SystemDrive%\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\Ad-Aware.exe goto next start /wait aawsepersonal.exe /s :next ECHO. ECHO Installing AVG Anti-Virus 7.1.782... start /wait avgsetup.exe /HIDE /DONT_START_APPS /NO_WELCOME /NO_AVGW_STARTUP /QUIT_IF_INSTALLED ECHO. ECHO Installing Mozilla Firefox ECHO Please wait... IF EXISTS %SystemDrive%\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe goto EXIT start /wait Firefox.exe -ms EXIT
  3. Firefox install cancel?

    Thanks Ironside!!! Worked like a charm..... is there a way to make it just go to the next line instead of exit though? The "go to exit" command skips to the end.
  4. Firefox install cancel?

    hmmmmmm I gues no one knows anything... or my topic description suxors :-(
  5. Is there a flag you can set for a firefox install to cancel if it sees that firefox is already installed? I found out if it installs over your installation you loose all your bookmarks, cookies, themes..... the hard way
  6. Thanks for your post's CTRL-X or should I say Cut? :-/
  7. Below is my answer file..... when I installed this is what happened. Everything worked fine until it got to the product key portion. The setup gave me an error message stating that the information provided was not correct or somthing to that effect. I simply clicked "OK" and typed in a valid key, then clicked "Next" and the unattended install continued and completed. This is as close to I want as I think Im going to get. Unless you think the other way will not ask for a key until windows boots up... which is what i really want. This way I could start the install go stand on my head for 36min and come back and the desktop is up asking me to activate windows.
  8. I want to make a "generic" install disc that I can use for a number of different PCs. This means that the product key for each one is obviously going to be different. If I do not put a key in the answer file, will it only prompt me for the key on install? Or will it break the whole un-attended setup? PS--- You guys are the best... I am a new member here and the amout of useful stuff on this website is mind blowing I am trying an unattended right now without a product key entered.... I will post how it goes. But I do appreciate input until then. God bless VM-Ware.
