  1. So on my friends computer, there's this red dot in the systray. When you right-click it, a windows pops up prompting for a password, the title of the window is password for viewer. Can't seem to find the name of the program. I can't see anything suspicious in task manager or in services. Is there some program that can give you the path of a window that pops up? That would end the mystery, but I'm not aware of a program like that.
  2. omg a warning?!?! HOLY s***! If you can't provide any information, don't post any off topic information or you'll get a warning.
  3. I can't seem to find any switches that this application has.
  4. I've searched and searched, but I can't find a way to silently install all 3 components of the ati suite at the same time. the reason why I don't do them individually is because the ati software uninstaller isn't installed if you do them separately. the setup.exe in the first directory is an installshield, so I do setup.exe /r, go through the entire install, then I copy the setup.iss and when I do setup.exe /s, nothing happens.
  5. For XP its 2, one for after uninstall, one for after install. Is Vista any different?
  6. When you Uninstall the ATI Catalyst in XP, it wants you to reboot before it can let you have just a generic vga display driver. So if you want to install a new catalyst, it takes 2 reboots. Does anyone know what XP has to do to make it possible to install a new driver, and if its possible to get this done with some code without rebooting? I'd like to create a program or script that uninstalls my driver without having to reboot.
  7. I know how its easy to extract the package first, then get an unattended setup with setup.exe, but is there any possible way to extract the initial package silently? Reason being is because I'm working on an application that updates your catalyst automatically.
  8. I got it to work! i also thought it was impossible until i found the environment variable I was looking for: %CD% heres my batch file to create a shortcut that will work with a user defined directory in a rar sfx: shortcut.exe /f:"%allusersprofile%\Desktop\Program.lnk" /a:c /t:"%CD%\Program_Subdir\App.exe" /w:"%CD%\Program_Subdir" so what happens is, the user specifies a directory for the program, lets say he uses C:\application after it gets done unraring, the batch file runs which is located in the same directory as the exe i want the shortcut to. so then %CD% would equal whatever directory the user specifies, and a shortcut would be made. %CD% = current directory btw.
  9. I have a winrar SFX file that I want to prompt the user to install, but then after I want to run a batch file that creates a shortcut to a relevant EXE on their desktop, instead of having them fish for it. what is it that "right click, create shortcut" does exactly? when using shortcut.exe in my batch file, it wants a full path. I can't give it that, because I don't know what the user is going select for a directory. anyone know how to go about this? im wondering if there is some dos command that can give me an environment variable that contains the full path directory the batch file was called in?
  10. I have a winrar SFX that prompts the user for a directory(this part i didn't want unattended) Is there a way to send a shortcut to an .exe to the desktop, so no matter what directory the user specifies, he/she will receive a desktop shortcut to this program on the desktop? I was hoping to have a batch file make shortcut.exe be able to recognize the directory of the executable, and create a fullpath to it, but that doesn't seem to be working.
  11. you say that files just need to be copied but don't specify which ones. the flash installer cannot be opened in winrar, so how do you install flash to firefox unattended?
  12. thanks a bunch. i just also just found a list from googling: http://kennethhunt.com/archives/000933.html not sure if its complete though
  13. in Xp pro, im wondering if there is a way to specify "%systemdrive%\documents and settings\username" is this possible? my search didn't yield an answer.
  14. i know i saw someone talking about it a week ago, but can't find the thread anymore. hard thing to search for too. anyone know off hand?
  15. im working on an unattended install for someone. they want to be able to make/delete/select which partition they want for xp, and choose whether to quick format or regular format, so what would i need to change to allow this part to be manual, but the rest as normal? in winnt.sif right now repartition is 1, which obviously i need to turn off, and then there's autopartition which is 1. if i turn that to 0, will that let that whole part of setup be manual?
  16. ok, ive been reading about this kind of thing about an hour ago and yeah a domain environment with win2003 server would be ideal. but this situation can't be too unique. im the admin of the PC, but its a gaming PC, sometimes i would like to let other people logon to my PC using a gamer account and only be able to play certain games that i put on the desktop for them. thats all im trying to do basically.
  17. yeah i was in there , but i can't specify what users these settings take effect for? i mean it just says user config.
  18. that link does not work and when i type www.<<spam>>.net in IE or firefox it doesnt' work either.
  19. I'm trying to make a username/profile on a computer that will only let the user run the applications which are on the desktop, restart, or shutdown. is this possible with winxp PRO, or would i need an extra program to allow me to do this? thanks for information
  20. is there a way to have one user logged onto a winxp pro pc locally, and have another remotely connect and use a different login name to work on the same machine at the same time?
  21. the most they could do without getting in trouble is render the OS unusable.
