  1. Thank you so much for the help. @ricktendo64 The .inf addon would work but I don'treally care for that system so i don't use it. @benners I as able to use a program called innounp and follow instructions here: http://www.msfn.org/board/lofiversion/index.php/t17540.html on how to unpack, modify and repack the installer so I could use a standard silent switch. I have never had any issues with the installer I repacked so I would like to use the same method if at all possible. The issue is the latest version of innounp (v0.19) only supports up to v5.1.10 and Spyware Blaster v4 uses the 5.2.x branch. How were you able to get the.iss file extracted? What software did you use to do it? Can you possibly send me a link with instructions?
  2. I tried most of the common switches including /S, /SILENT, /VERYSILENT, etc. Spyware blaster gives an error box stating that "silent install is not supported by spywareblaster". With v3.5 the installer had to be extracted, some files modified then repacked. Most likely this version will need the same thing done.
  3. Has anyone found a relatively easy way to repack Spyware Blaster v4? I tried to use innounp like for v3.5.1 but it appears the program is outdated and doesn't work properly. I don't care for svcpack integration or autoit. My unattended CD uses RunOnceEX and I generally repack all of the installers using WinRar to make an SFX file that runs the installer with the switch. Any help would be appreciated.
  4. for the most part yes. I installed it normally then wehnt into HKLM and HKCU and exported the winace registry keys. I then setup my cd to reimport the settings automatically after it extracts the files. Everythign works beautifully except for the context menus. I most likely could go through the registry to each file extension and export those settings but If I can just install the program silently with a switch or repackaged msi it would be easier. Also I rellay dont liek autoit scripts so I would perfer to not use them. Thanks in advance.
  5. I can't seem to find a switch to silently install Winace 2.65. I can just copy the program files folder and everything seems to work fine except for the context menus that it creates when it installs the program. Anyone have a workign switch or a repacked msi for 2.65? Help would be appreciated.
  6. I want my unattended XP CD to silently install the IPX protocol alongside TCP/IP for some older games like starcraft. Using a microsoft winnt.sif creator I can actually get what I need to input to install ipx by default but it does not do it silently. What was generated is below: [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=No [NetAdapters] Adapter1=params.Adapter1 [params.Adapter1] INFID=* [NetClients] MS_MSClient=params.MS_MSClient [NetServices] MS_SERVER=params.MS_SERVER [NetProtocols] MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP MS_NWIPX=params.MS_NWIPX [params.MS_TCPIP] DNS=Yes UseDomainNameDevolution=No EnableLMHosts=Yes AdapterSections=params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1 [params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1] SpecificTo=Adapter1 DHCP=Yes WINS=No NetBIOSOptions=0 [params.MS_NWIPX] VirtualNetworkNumber=00000000 AdapterSections=params.MS_NWIPX.Adapter1 [params.MS_NWIPX.Adapter1] SpecificTo=Adapter1 PktType=0xFF NetworkNumber=00000000 When I put this into my winnt.sif inplace of: [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=Yes it does infact select IPX by defualt but I have to actually hit custom then ok. Any ideas or help would be appreciated.
  7. I have my unattended CD set to silently install quicktime 7 and everything works. The only problem is I have to manually enter my Pro serial to register it. Does anyone know where quicktime stores its registration info so I can import it durning my unattended setup?
  8. I know that I can run "d:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons" (where D is the letter of the CD-ROM) to install the recovery console to the hard drive once I have already installed windows. I want to add this feature to my unattended windows setup CD. I am going to write a batch file to automate the process but I want to know if anyone knows a silent command or switch so it completes the process automatically. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. I have tried to integrate a silent install of DirectX 9.0C into my unattended Windows 2000 but so far have been relatively unsuccessful (I have SP4 and SR1 for SP4 slipstreamed). I have tried both a .bat file run from GUIRunOnce and via cmdlines.txt. I extracted the redis package and have been using the switch dxsetup.exe /silent. I have also attempted to use the /install switch alogn with /silent but always get an invalid switch error. When using the .bat method I get memory errors during install. When running it via cmdlines.txt I don't get any install errors but either running it via .bat or cmdlines.txt when I run dxdiag in windows I get an error about GDI32.dll and User32.dll. I searched around on google and found If I replace to files d3d8thk.dll and dinput8.dll with alternate ones from the .cab files those errors do go away. If I do a regular install using the same redis package (Aug 4 2004) with no switches I don't seem to have this problem. Perferably I would like to use the cmdlines.txt method and stay away from using any hex edited setup files etc... If any one can shed some insight it would be appreciated.
  10. I need some info on how to silently install the .xpi files for Firefox extensions or on creating a customer repacked setup file that will automatically include the required extensions. Any help would be great. And I did do a search but found very little in the way of doing this and a lot of just repacked setup files done by other people.
  11. Ok I have ghost 8 corp and I use it at work to image/restore about 40 Dell dimensions 3000's over our gigabit network from a Ghost Cast server. None of these PC's have a floppy drive so booting has to be done off of CD. What I want to do ultimately is create 1 CD that has the network boot files along with the NIC driver and Ghost.exe on the same CD so I do not have to swap CD's. Ghost 8 allows me to make a 2 disk floppy set for the network boot disks but again no floppy. I did however make the set on another PC and used nero to write each 1.44mb disk to CD. These CD's will boot just fine the only problem is me having to burn 1.44mb of data to a CD and then having to make 2 CD's. I tried using winimage to make an image of the first bootdisk, convert it to a 2.88MB image and then inject ghost.exe into the image but when I burn that image to a CD it won't boot. I also tried making a bootable CD Barts way which I was not very fond off and for some reason I could never get it to load my NIC NDIS driver. I don't want to boot into a PE or anything like that. It seems If I had a physical 2.88MB floppy drive and disk this wouldn't be a problem but I do not. I need a bootable CD using the Intel 10/100 NDIS Nic driver. If someone out there knows how I can do this or has a 2.88MB floppy disk and drive and a copy of Ghost 8 corp and would like to make a network boot disk set with the intel drivers on one disk and then send me the floppy image I would be more than grateful.
  12. I attempted to rebuild the Spybot 1.4 innosetup using innounp .16 but becasue the install is too advanced I cannot recompile the script once it is extracted. I could possibly use a taskkill or pskill command but there should be a way to use a switch to stop it from happening. Again is their a list of switches for the different kinds of setups and how can I view what switches are avaible usign an innosetup installer file. The /? and /help switchs don't work so I dont knoe any other way to view the avaiiable switches.
  13. I tried using my switches from Spybot 1.3 which was /SILENT /SP- /NORESTART but I cannot figure out how to get Spybot 1.4 to not auto update. I tried /NOAUTOUPDATE and AUTOUPDATE=0. Can anyone clue me into all of the new switches in v1.4. Also just in general where can I find a list of general switches for each different kind of installer. I want to be able ot experiment with switches for different programs in the future before posting so If anyone knows of a good resource that lists almost all or at least teh most common switches for installers based on install shiled and innosetup, etc... will they pass a link my way. Thanks in advance.
  14. I have a program tha installs off of a .inf. Is there any way to use the exsisting .inf file to make a silent install? Are there any switches or do I have to compile it to a .msi? Can I do it using a WinRar sfx file? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  15. I am making a CD that has nothing to do windows; It has its own GUI menu and I need it to work In Windows 95 through XP. Once I do an unattended install of Ad-Aware SE personal v1.05 it starts the hh.exe and ad-aware.exe automatically. Normally I would run Taskkill and kill those process but unfortuantely Windows 9x doesnt have taskkill so This will not work. Is there a different file I can call in all versions of Windows to successfully kill those process'? If I copy taskkill to the CD can I call it in 9x even though it isn't natively in 9x? Or even better is there a switch for SE Personal that will in fact prevent the program from auto starting? What I have foudn out from searching is that there is a switch in the pro version that will do this but every where I looked no one mentioned teh actual switches. I have searched not only this forum but also on google trying to find an answer to this. Can anyone help me?
  16. Thank you for your replys. I didn't know I was able to delete the file after windows install I must have missed that part in the readme's. Also thank you for your reply to my questions; I didn't even know that MAKECAB had other types of compression methods. Also I was reading soem other posts on the subject and the word txtmodesetup came up so I wasn't sure if the info I had before was correct. Ultimately what I want to do is make it so if there is a disk running on a SATA/RAID channel that needs a driver (usually you do this by pressing F6; the presence of winnt.sif prevents this) chances are it will already be on the CD. If I were to use your driver pack for mass sotrage would I still be using Mode 1 or would I switch to Mode 2? Also can you link me to some info on slipstreaming RAID/SATA files so that I can infact use them during txtmodesetup? Thank you for your help.
  17. I have taken a look at your driver packs and though they are a great Idea i'd rather not use them. Honestly I do not like the file structure (I dont want a folder named D on my system drive that I have to keep there becasue windows needs to load a RAID driver from it all the time. Also all teh folders are abbreviated so I don't know what half of them are) and layout once the pack(s) have been applied. I'm not doubting they work or the integrity of them but I have spent a lot of time and hard work on this CD and I would like to learn to integrate them my self. Your packs would probably save me a lot of time and work but I like to do things the hard way simply becasue that is how I learn. Eventually if I can't get it to work I might use the Driver Pack but I would like it to be a last resort. Although to have been able to put such a pack together you must know a lot about the process. Can you possibly answer the questions I stated in the first post?
  18. I have had an unattended XP Pro CD for a while and as long as I've had it it has been great. The only thing about it that has ever bothered me is sometimes I run into a computer with the HDD on a Raid or SATA channel that Win XP doesn't already have the driver for. Because I use an unattended winnt.sif file pressing F6 to locate the drivers on a floppy doesn't work (And I don't want to carry around 20 floppys). I want to start slipstreaming some of the more common RAID/SATA drivers directly into the cd (Si3112, Promise 20276, etc..). I read greenmachine's tutorial which is good and definetly helped me slipstream the si3112 drivers. The only line that honestly messed me up was this one: MAKECAB E:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\DRIVERS\006\SI3112\SI3112.SYS E:\XPCD\i386\SI3112.SY_. I know how to compress a file using the MAKECAB function but I'm not exactly sure which files I need to compress and intigrate into my I386 folder. Do I have to do this for every file? Is this only for the .sys files? Will each set of drivers have a different file I need to compress? Should I compress them all just to be safe? Also the OEM PNP path in greenmachines tutorial is set to: OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\006\SI3112". If I wanted to add 5 different sets of drivers for 5 different controllers would I put them all in (for example) the $OEM$\$1\DRIVERS\006\SI3112\ folder and point to it? Could I create 5 directorys named Promise, Highpoint, Ali, Adaptec and Maxtor, place them all in the folder "$OEM$\$1\DRIVERS\RAID" and set OemPnP like this OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\RAID"? If I do that will windows include all the SubDir in its search for drivers? Any help would be appreciated. I have received a lot of help here over the years and appreciate it a lot.
  19. Ok I will try it. If it does in fact work and my diskeeper installs I still have the problem of tweakUI and adding .msi install files in general in the future. Also my way wasnt wrong it just wasnt as small as yours.
  20. Ok I tried the suggestions and this is what my file looked like: cmdow @ /HID @echo off SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Applications" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "FireFox v1.0" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "msiexec /i \"%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\FireFox10\FireFox.msi\" /passive /norestart" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /VE /D "Adaware SE PRO v1.05" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\AdawareSE105\aawsepro.exe /s" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 2 /D "taskkill /F /IM hh.exe" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 3 /D "taskkill /F /IM Ad-aware.exe" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /VE /D "Norton Antivirus Corp v9" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\NortonCorp9\Setup.exe /v/qn" /f REG ADD %KEY%\020 /VE /D "SpyBot v1.3" /f REG ADD %KEY%\020 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\SpyBot13\spybotsd13.exe /sp- /verysilent /norestart /AUTOCLOSE /f" /f REG ADD %KEY%\025 /VE /D "TweakUI" /f REG ADD %KEY%\025 /V 1 /D "msiexec /i \"%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\TweakUI\tweakui.msi\" /qb" /f REG ADD %KEY%\030 /VE /D "System Mechanic v4.0J" /f REG ADD %KEY%\030 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\SystemMech40j\systemmechanic40j.exe /s" /f REG ADD %KEY%\035 /VE /D "WinRar v3.41" /f REG ADD %KEY%\035 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\WinRAR341\wrar341.exe /s" /f REG ADD %KEY%\040 /VE /D "Nero Burning ROM v6.6.0.6" /f REG ADD %KEY%\040 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\Nero6606\nero6606.exe" /f REG ADD %KEY%\045 /VE /D "Diskeeper v9.0 Build 515" /f REG ADD %KEY%\045 /V 1 /D "msiexec /i \"%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\Diskeeper9\Diskeeper.msi\" /qb" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /VE /D "Cleaning Up and Registering" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\unattended\Users.bat" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 2 /D "%systemroot%\unattended\Compatiblity.bat" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 3 /D "%systemroot%\unattended\Cleanup.bat" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 4 /D "%systemroot%\unattended\Remove.bat" /f EXIT Still I got tweakUI and Dsikeeper telling me there were other installations in progress. Any more suggestions?
  21. Sorry I posted in the wrong forum. I thought I hit the unattended forum but I must've hit the regular one. I will try your suggestions tonight. I do have one more question though. Is it possible to make it so I can still install raid drivers by pressing F6 with a winnt.sif file. I want the abiulity to use both and If I can avoid it I would like to stay away from slip streaming teh drivers onto the cd
  22. ok first here is my RunOnceex.cmd: cmdow @ /HID @echo off SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Applications" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "FireFox v1.0" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\FireFox10\FireFox.msi /passive /norestart" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /VE /D "Adaware SE PRO v1.05" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\AdawareSE105\aawsepro.exe /s" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 2 /D "taskkill /F /IM hh.exe" /f REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 3 /D "taskkill /F /IM Ad-aware.exe" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /VE /D "Norton Antivirus Corp v9" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\NortonCorp9\Setup.exe /v/qn" /f REG ADD %KEY%\020 /VE /D "SpyBot v1.3" /f REG ADD %KEY%\020 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\SpyBot13\spybotsd13.exe /sp- /silent /norestart /f" /f REG ADD %KEY%\025 /VE /D "TweakUI" /f REG ADD %KEY%\025 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\TweakUI\TweakUI.msi /qb" /f REG ADD %KEY%\030 /VE /D "System Mechanic v4.0J" /f REG ADD %KEY%\030 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\SystemMech40j\systemmechanic40j.exe /s" /f REG ADD %KEY%\035 /VE /D "WinRar v3.41" /f REG ADD %KEY%\035 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\WinRAR341\wrar341.exe /s" /f REG ADD %KEY%\040 /VE /D "Nero Burning ROM v6.6.0.6" /f REG ADD %KEY%\040 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\Nero6606\nero6606.exe" /f REG ADD %KEY%\045 /VE /D "Diskeeper v9.0 Build 515" /f REG ADD %KEY%\045 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\Diskeeper9\Diskeeper.msi /qb" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /VE /D "Cleaning Up and Registering" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\unattended\Users.bat" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 2 /D "%systemroot%\unattended\Compatiblity.bat" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 3 /D "%systemroot%\unattended\Cleanup.bat" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 4 /D "%systemroot%\unattended\Remove.bat" /f EXIT The problem is that when setup goes to launch tweakUI and Diskeeper I get an error that another install is in progress and that one must finish first. Both tweakui and diskeeper are .MSI's which makes me believe it is the .MSI format but my Firefox.MSI installs just fine. Now this could be because the firefox.MSI installs before anything else but I am unsure, I tried using sleep.exe to sleep for 30 seconds after every program install but that didnt work I still got "Another install is already in progress" error.
  23. If there are any cool secret switches let me know. I also want to setup my own bus names with a switch or .reg file so I can have the advantage of an expert install.
  24. Ok Ive finally decided its not me its Diskeeper. I aborted install and foudn teh /msi file liek you said Sweden XP. I renamed the file Diskeeper.msi from Diskeeper Professional Edition.msi because you cant use spaces in a batch file. so this is my new code: ECHO Installing Diskeeper v8.0 Build 478 ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemroot%\UNATTENDED\Diskeeper8\Diskeeper.msi /qn /l* log.txt I turned on diskeeper logging because all of my other programs work and I want to ruel out a silent error. Well the diskeeper log file puts out an this error "ERROR 1316 cannot find file Diskeeper Professional Edition.msi". So I renamed my file Diskeeper Professional Edition.msi and made my code look like this: ECHO Installing Diskeeper v8.0 Build 478 ECHO Please wait... start /wait "%systemroot%\UNATTENDED\Diskeeper8\Diskeeper Professional Edition.msi" /qn /l* log.txt But as soon as I do this my batch script tells my Invalid switch with any switch I try. Is there an easier way to add quotes to a batch script? Do I have to use a differenet character that acts as a quote to get this to work? Do I have to somehow incorporate my switchs into the quotes? Please help I am gettign so frustrated.
