  1. I tried the script in a real unattended install and I am glad to report the installation went of perfectly, except for one small problem:

    $UN = ""; UserName
    $CN = ""; CompanyName

    which seemed to work fine with the Nero 7 scripts, does not work here and I ended up with blanks where there ought to be the User and Company names. I would like to point out that I had simply made the above change to the scipt myself, so in case there are any other required changes that were made by CEoCEo to make this work, then that may be the problem. I compared my script with that of CEoCEo and my simply just making the above change is not enough since the script requires further entries to make it work. Lesson learnt, in future be more careful.


  2. I use the following in my start.cmd to install WinZip 11.1

    ECHO Installing 'WinZip Pro 11.1.7466'
    ECHO Please wait...
    start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\WINZIP\winzip111.msi /qr INSTALLCMD="/noqp /noc4u /nopredefinedjobs /autoinstall"
    start /wait regedit /s %systemdrive%\Install\WinZip\registerwinzip.reg

    This installs Winzip but the problem is that the first time I run WinZip it makes me go thru all the setup procedures. Any ideas as to what I may be doing wrong?

    PS: Always install Universal Extractor after installing WinZip to avoid the "Winzip only supports the 16-bit version of ARJ... " error mentioned above by 'coucou'.

  3. Thanks 'CEoCEo' for the script. I will get back with the feedback after I get a chance to use it. I do have one suggestion/request, could you please modify the script so that if one leaves the UserName and CompanyName blank then the default is picked up from the system.

    I think the following should be changed,


    $UN = "UserName"
    $CN = "CompanyName"


    $UN = ""; UserName
    $CN = ""; CompanyName


  4. Does nlite work in Vista? I don't mean working with a Vista unattended DVD but rather working with an Unattended XP DVD but working in a VIsta environement. The reason I ask is I am getting errors trying to slipstream IE7 and it's hotfixes. I have in the past succesfuly used nLite to slipstream IE7 with updates to my WinXP DVD.

    The procedure I have always followed is:

    1. WMP Slipstreamer - used to slipstream Vanilla WMP11 along with all the hotfixes for WMP11

    2. RVM Integrator - used to integrate Ryan's pack and a whole bunch of addons

    3. nLite - used to integrate IE7 and IE7 hotfixes.

    As mentioned before I have always had 100% success with the method earlier as long as I had been working in Windows XP. Now when I am trying to run nLite in Vista and do the same, nLite immediately crashes as soon as I add the two hotfixes for integration. The procedure I follow in nLite is:

    1. 'Locate' Windows Installation directory.

    2. Under 'Task Selection' I click only on 'Hotfixed, Addons and Update Packs'.

    3. 'Insert' IE7 installer Build 7.0.5730.13 (IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.exe)

    4. Insert IE7 hotfixes (KB938127 - IE7-WindowsXP-KB938127-x86-ENU.exe and KB939653 - IE7-WindowsXP-KB939653-x86-ENU.exe)

    As soon as I click on Open after selecting the hotfixes to be inserted, I get a message in vista stating that nLite has stopped working.

    Anyone with any ideas what the problem may be? Or is it simply that nLite does nto work in Vista just like RVM_Integrator?

    PS: I have tried both nLite v1.3.5 and v1.4 RC2 with the smae results.

  5. For installing add-ins for Office 2007 do the following:

    ECHO Installing 'Microsoft Office 2007 Add-Ins'
    ECHO Please wait...
    ECHO Microsoft Office Outlook Connector
    start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\Office2007\Add-Ins\msnolcon.msi /q
    ECHO Outlook Personal Folders Backup
    start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\Office2007\Add-Ins\pfbackup.msi /q
    ECHO Office 2007 Add-in Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS
    start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\Office2007\Add-Ins\SaveAsPDFandXPS.exe /q

    PS: You have to extract 'pfbackup.exe' to get 'pfbackup.msi'.

  6. Hi,

    What program do I need in order to extract the *.msp files? And once I've extracted an *.exe is the only file I need the *.msp file, delete any other files that extract and the original *.exe, right?



    You can use 7zip or WinZip to extract the files from the KBxxxxxx.exe files. From the extracted files all you need is the *.msp file, you can discard all the other files. Also, just to keep things organized you may want to rename the *msp file to KBxxxxxx.msp using the corresponding names from the exe files. But this is not required.

  7. I have some good news and some bad news.

    First, the good news is that the updates all got automatically installed from my 'Unattended DVD'. I simply extracted the *.msp files from the KBXXXXXX.exe files, renamed the *.msp files to 'KBXXXXXX.msp' using the coresponding 'KBXXXXXX.exe' file names and placed them in the Updates folder.

    Now for the bad news. The other add-ins did not get installed from the Updates folder. I think it may have something to do with the fact that they don't have a *.msp file in them. If someone knows how to get the add-ins to install automatically, please share the info here.


    PS: I had placed the following add-ins in the update folder:

    Microsoft Office Outlook Connector - msnolcon.msi

    Outlook Personal Folders Backup - pfbackup.exe

    Office 2007 Add-in Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS - SaveAsPDFandXPS.exe

  8. Update for Outlook 2007 (KB933493) 

    Brief Description
    This update fixes a problem in which a calendar item that is marked as private is opened if it is found by using the Search Desktop feature. The update also fixes performance issues that occur when you work with items in a large .pst file or .ost file.

    Quick Details
    File Name: outlook2007-kb933493-fullfile-x86-glb.exe
    Version: 1
    Knowledge Base (KB) Articles: KB933493
    Date Published: 4/13/2007

    Any idea why this update no longer shows up in 'Microsoft Update' and/or 'Office Update'? Since it is still available on the Office 2007 download site, if you search for it, do we need to still apply it or not?


  9. Question:

    There have been several updates released for Microsoft Office 2007 since RTM. In order to apply the KBXXXXXX.exe updates to Office, I just save them in the updates folder and Office will automatically install them during setup, right?

    I don't need to reference each individual update anywhere in my *.msp file?

    That is exactly how I thought it works, but apparently it does not. I have already tried putting all the 'update exe files' in the updates folder but none of them got applied. Based on what I can make out from a few posts in this thread it seems you need to have the updates in a '*.msp' file format. Upon extracting the 'KBXXXXXX.exe update' files I found that they all contain several *.txt files in addition to 'DetectionDll' '*.cif' & a '*.msp'. I am presuming that all you need is the '*.msp' file to be put in the 'Updates' folder. I personally have renamed all the '*.msp' files to 'KBXXXXXX.msp' using the coresponding 'KBXXXXXX.exe' file names to keep it more organized. Hopefully this shall work.

  10. IMPORTANT: You need to have DirectX installed prior to running this script. Incase DirectX is not pre-installed, the script will halt to install DirectX.

    can the script be edited to inulde the installation of directx if its not already installed.. ..please provide help on this .. thx

    Since DirectX is something that is required on a WinXP PC by whole lot of programs would it not make sense to simply have directx installed on your computer anyhow? I would suggest you integrate DirectX into your unattended CD/DVD, there is an addon (RVMAddonsDX9_1.1.7z) from Ryan on his site.

  11. I think it depends on which version gets installed, the Blu-Ray or HD version, mine is always the Blu-Ray, I don't know whether the setup decides off the DVD drive or the computer spec such as DVD drive, GFX card (HD compliant), Monitor (HD compliant), CPU speed etc.

    I don't have a Blu-Ray DVD nor any HDCP compliant hardware so maybe the Blu-Ray version is a default for peasants like me :thumbup . If you copy the sim files to the correct folder PDVDBD or PDVDHD dependant on which is going to be installed the install goes ok, providing the usual ini edits are applied, this has been my experience copying the files to the PDVDBD folder.

    I don't have either a 'Blu-Ray' or 'HD-DVD' drive and on my system also the 'PDVDBD' version is the one that always gets installed. I guess it must be the default version for those without a 'Blu-Ray' or 'HD-DVD' drive.

    The following procedure works for me:

    Cyberlink PowerDVD 7.2 ULTRA - Silent installer instructions:

    1) Unpack the 'PowerDVD 7.2 Ultra' original installer to a folder 'PowerDVD7ULTRA'.

    2) Install 'PowerDVD 7.2 Ultra' from the original installer and register it with your serial.

    3) Copy 'PowerDVD.sim' from 'C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\'
    and 'CLAud.sim' from 'C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\AudioFilter\'
    Then depending on the version that gets installed on your PC, 'PDVDBD' or 'PDVDHD' Paste the two copied files to either 'PowerDVD7ULTRA\PDVDBD\' or 'PowerDVD7ULTRA\PDVDHD\'.

    4) Edit the file 'Custom.ini' in the extracted folder 'PowerDVD7ULTRA' and add the following:

    5) Then Edit the 'Custom.ini' files in 'PowerDVD7ULTRA\PDVDBD\' & 'PowerDVD7ULTRA\PDVDHD\' and add the following:
    BuildInPacks=Notebook Pack, MPEG4 AVC Pack
    (Replace 'xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx' with your own serial key)

    6) Remove the 'GoogleToolbar' folder from 'PowerDVD7ULTRA\PDVDBD\' & 'PowerDVD7ULTRA\PDVDHD\'.

    7) Then make a WinRAR SFX file with the files in the extracted folder 'PowerDVD7ULTRA', using the following:
    ;The comment below contains SFX script commands

    Title=Cyberlink PowerDVD Deluxe 7.2.2414.0

    8) Add the 'PowerDVD 7' icon with winrar.

    9) Switcheless silent 'PowerDVD7ULTRA.exe' installer is ready.

    I do end up with two small problems though.

    1. First problem is that at the end of the silent install, an IE window opens up with the 'Readme.htm' file.

    I suppose I could just delete the file "C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\Language\Enu\Readme.htm" as part of the silent install, but I am not sure if that would work and/or be the best way of doing it.

    2. Second problem is that in the small display window on the bottom right of 'Power DVD' the scrolling sign says 'PowerDVD' only. Whereas when I install with the original installer and enter my serial key manually it shows 'PowerDVD Deluxe Version'.

    Anyone else have the same problems? Does anyone have a solution for this?

  12. does it remove any components? or install every thing?

    Please read my post again and also redownload the script. I have edited my post with all relevant imformation to answer your questions. In short you can choose what you want installed or not.

  13. Fully working, Auto_It Script for Nero

    Thanks to 'jbm' for his help in resolving some issues.

    You need to enter your Serial and set your preferences for components and shortcuts to install and/or exclude.

    Also you need to set your own preferences for default settings.

    This script has been tested with the NO 'ASK ME Toolbar' installer. In case you use a different installer then you need to make the appropriate changes in the script and list the correct 'exe' file name.

    The default settings of the script are:

    Installer 'EXE' file 'Nero-'

    Installs the following:










    Does NOT Install the following:








    Creates Shortcuts:

    QuickLaunch Shortcut to Nero StartSmart

    Delete Start Menu Shortcut to Nero ProductSetup

    Does NOT Create Shortcuts:

    Desktop Shortcut to Nero Home

    QuickLaunch Shortcut to Nero Home

    Start Menu Shortcut to Nero Home

    Desktop Shortcut to Nero StartSmart

    Start Menu Shortcut to Nero Scout

    Preferences Set:

    Disables 'NeroFilterCheck startup process'

    Enables 'Prompt to save unsaved project/compilation when exiting?'

    Enables 'DVD overburning?'

    Enables 'Disable/Prevent's the CD/DVD from ejecting after burning is complete.'

    Enables 'Nero Waiting For Disc Sound.'

    Enables 'Burn Process Fail Sound.'

    Enables 'Burn Process Successful Sound.'

    Enables 'Verify Written Data after Burn.'

    Enables 'Show real recorder write speed while burning.'

    Enables 'Short Lead-Out?'

    IMPORTANT: You need to have DirectX installed prior to running this script. Incase DirectX is not pre-installed, the script will halt to install DirectX.

  14. @salawinder

    I had modified your script for to work with, but the problem with it is that for some reason the 'serial' entry part is not working and therefore the install halts at that stage. But if I manually click 'Next' then from there on the rest of the install goes thru fine except that it installs in the 'demo' mode since the serial was not entered via the script. Would it be possible for you to please check my attached script for Nero and figure out why it might be having a problem entering the serial?



    Edit: I got a my script working with the help of 'jbm'. The script is posted below.

  15. I cannot get this to extract 'Skype' or for that matter 'Easy CD/DC Extractor'. I need to extract Skype to get rid of the Google bar crap that Skype has now started to add to their installer. They actually have the nerve to highlight this as a new feature of Skype.
