  1. Hello, What are reasonably easy ways to get a silent install of a program that has no switches? I know some people use AutoIt scripts.
  2. Hello, I've been trying to find a way for a silent install of the full version. If anyone could help me, that would be great! (there is a remote installation feature, but that does not include all parts of program) Thanks for your time
  3. finally found the answer... cmdlines.txt [COMMANDS] "REGEDIT /S regtweaks.reg" proper syntax, and all current user tweaks are perminant for all created (now or next year) accounts.
  4. alright! thanks! if i import Regtweaks.reg them from runonceex, then i'm done for. i have to import from cmdlines.cmd like..... [COMMANDS] "Regtweaks.reg" "useraccounts.cmd" "RunOnceEx.cmd" thank you very much. i really appreciate it!
  5. like this? [COMMANDS] ; Disable 'Send Information To The Internet' Prompt [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3] "1601"=dword:00000000 ; Disable Auto-Complete Prompt [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IntelliForms] "AskUser"=dword:00000000 ; Disable Internet Explorer Cookie 'Privacy Icon' Prompt [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings] "PrivDiscUiShown"=dword:00000001 "RunOnceEx.cmd" do i have to put quotes on each line? like "[HKEY....." and... is it ok to leave the descriptions in like that? thanks
  6. thanks for all the replies! i looked up "hivedef.inf", it looks interesting but i prefer to do reg tweaks the old fashioned way, calling them with runonceex. [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] "NoStartMenuMFUprogramsList"=dword:00000001that one didn't work. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer] "NoStartMenuMFUprogramsList"=dword:00000001 this one did work! but... I would like to know how to import the tweaks at T-12, but the registry guide is down..............
  7. i know i'm a little late. and this topic seems to be in the wrong category... but nice+simplistic+windows wallpapers! just what i've been looking for. good collection.

    XPize 3.2

    very nice package! i really like the welcome screen. i was looking for the logonui.exe but i can't find it. i would just like to use a few things from this program (like the welcom screen). is it possible?
  9. ; Remove Frequently Accessed Programs List from Start Menu [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] "NoStartMenuMFUprogramsList"=dword:00000001 is there a way to make this entry go for all users? it only affects the administrator account (because of autologon with runonceex), but i want it to affect all accounts created. thanks for reading this stupid question...
  10. what keystroke logger do you use? and how do you make them silent (what are the switches)? I like Blazingtools Perfect Keystroke Logger, but haven't found a way for silent install.....
  11. I was using Virtual PC 2004 for over a year... Just switched to VMWare Workstation 5.0! The difference in installation speed is VERY significant. The layout of VPC is much more simplified, but performance is what really matters at the end of the day.
  12. exactly mraeryceos, so... what i wanted to find out is... is there a way to use a different Administrative account with AutoLogon & AutoLogonCount. the reason behind this... i guess... so the default Administrator account is never logged into.
  13. ah... so. default admin = NO autologon. (never logs on) newly created admin = YES autologon. thanks.
  14. well... guess there is no real benefit, using another admin account other than admin. was just wondering about it. it's just a "puzzle" for me. i can't solve it, so wonder if there's actually a reasonable solution.
  15. is it possible to do an "autologoncount=1" for an administrative account other than administrator? i've created a new account called "root" (so now i have two admin accts). i would like the autologon=1, autologoncount-1 to apply to the "root" account, not the administrator account. so... i want the following to just happen once. as it is now, autologon is on permenantly. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] "DefaultUserName"="root" "DefaultPassword"="asdf1234" "AutoAdminLogon"="1"
  16. hello, i got a silent installation of mcafee MIS 7.0. (Virus Scan = 9.0) is there a way to integrate the registration? any replies are appreciated!
  17. has this worked for anyone? i saw no such files. McAfee I.S.S. 2005 ---- update: you don't have to check the temp folder. just check your install CD. D:\mis\enu this is an easy way to find the silent installers on MIS 7.0
  18. i'm going to do installs on computers as slow as a P2 with 128MB RAM. what do you recommend for reliable sleep timings??? (i'm guessing to double the amounts below?) --------- EDIT: nevermind. it's easier to just copy the silent install files from the cd.
  19. i want an IE link in the start menu. (i want it with the other links in the picture i attached) in the cleanup.cmd, i'm using this line: COPY "%UserProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\Internet Explorer.lnk" "%AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu" but after installation, the .link isn't copied. (my guess is that the cleanup.cmd is run before the original link is even created?) this code works fine if i run it manually after installation is all over. there must be another EASY way to get the link in there during the unattended install. ---------------- EDIT: nevermind. just did it through the distribution folders ($OEM$).
  20. while in classic theme, i insert a cd (mcafee in this case), and the installation screen is warped. it shows next to nothing, and the little "close" icon. this does not happen for all cds, but i don't want this to happen to any cds. i did integrate royal theme into the installation. (i would like to keep royal) how can i fix this? thanks!
  21. gosh you're right. i needed to add 2 shortcuts, for a total of 5 icons high, for that "windows xp" picture to show up. thanks!
  22. something is missing... something is blacked out. has this happened to anyone before?
  23. MSFN Forums > Unattended Windows Discussion & Support > Application Installs > How To 7zip Office 2003 to 33MB Installer it's now deleted and the creator was banned. wonder what happened.
  24. i thought the 1st one changes logon to classic... doesn't do that for me though. so what does it do? ; Disable Welcome Screen [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] "NoWelcomeScreen"=dword:00000001 ;Disable Welcome Screen and uses Classic Logon [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] "LogonType"=dword:00000000 any more detailed info (than the tiny descriptions) would be appreciated!
  25. everytime i manually create an account, these links are there. is there a way to prevent .lnk files being created in the "start menu/programs"? namely the internet explorer, outlook express, remote assistance, windows media player. and i'm talking about FUTURE accounts that AREN'T DEFINED YET, and wont be defined during the unattended install. these didn't work, maybe my syntax is wrong?: DEL "%AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\Windows Media Player.lnk" DEL "%AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\Remote Assistance.lnk" DEL "%AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\Outlook Express.lnk" thanks for any help!
