  1. Yes, by editing the msi properties. But try creating an mst file first. Modifying the msi directly does not work all the time, and it should only be done if everything else fails. I haven't played with msi files for more than 2 years, and I don't have the adobe software to perform some tests. But I am pretty sure that the concept about msi's still remains the same (except for the implementation of xml).
  2. I will download the installer when I get home so I can try it myself. I just hate the registration requirement on their website before it lets me download the trial.
  3. Hi. Is there an MSI inside the compressed executable? Is this the software you are trying to install? http://www.softimage.com/products/xsi/default.aspx
  4. This is what I use for basic installation. START /W MSIEXEC /I "Adobe Reader 7.0.8.MSI" /QB!- EULA_ACCEPT=YES
  5. Hi. I don't mean to discourage you, but I honestly don't think installing windows xp on that type of computer is a good idea. How about installing Linux instead?
  6. Thanks for replying guys. @LLXX: Could you explain to us how this can be done? Because I saw some posts suggesting the same thing, but they didn't mention how to do it. @-I-: Yeah I did some research earlier. However, I wasn't able to find the right answer. Others say that it is posible if you use a special router. But it costs about 200 bucks! @nitroshift: Thanks for the link. I am reading it now. I saw some softwares that can do the load balancing for you. According to the link, I can only do load balancing, but I cannot combine the two connections to get a faster speed. That is fine with me. I just want to make use of both of them simultaneously. Unfortunately, I still have to buy a special router! There has to be a way to do this.. What if I use one with direct connection and the other one with wireless?
  7. I have a 6 megabits cable internet connection, and recently I got another 6 megabits dsl internet connection by mistake. The funny thing is I only have one computer!! Both of the ISP's have contracts, so I cannot get rid of either one of them. How can I use both of them simultaneously? My dsl speed is 6mbps, and my cable is 6mbps as well. Is there a way to combine the two connections and get 12mbps speed? Obviously, I am not good in networking.
  8. Hello and welcome aboard! Here is a good place to start. http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/ If you are looking for a way to silently install any application, just search this forum. I'm pretty sure that we have the solution for most of the softwares here. If you can't find the solution for a particular software, feel free to ask. What are switches? Switches are command line parameters that can be passed on to an executable (e.g. installers) do perform a specific action. Switches control how the executable will behave during runtime. For example, you want to install VLC player silently. You can do that by using the /S switch. So you command will look similar to this: START /W vlc-0.8.5-win32.exe /S The vlc-0.8.5-win32.exe is the executable name, and after that is the switch /S. The switch controls the behavior of the executable. It makes the executable run silently (invisible, and without requiring you to click any button). I hope this helps a bit.
  9. Hi. I am just a bit concerned because I saw that the tool contains softwares from Sysinternals. Here is an excerpt from Sysinternals EULA:
  10. Hi. Have you tried using the regular MSI switches?
  11. Some AV softwares are so paranoid. Even NIS2006 detect my SFX files as trojan!
  12. Hi. Try this. http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/200.../19/555326.aspx
  13. OMG!! I guess I've been really busy. I never had the chance to visit this thread, neither this site.. I haven't read the recent posts yet, but I will when I get back home. Andromeda43 sent me a message 2 days ago regarding this thread, and I just saw it earlier. Thanks to all of your comments guys. I really appreciate it.
  14. I used InstallShield X Express for building my **** msi. It is not that complicated, because it is just a small software. It is easier if you use Inno for small applications like this.
  15. I also prefer InstallShield. Anyway, try this. http://www.skincrafter.com/installer.html
  16. Yep **** is better than notepad when it comes to nfo files. I also posted an msi installer several times.
  17. Thanks for the tip phkninja. Never heard of it, but I will definitely check it out. I am new to Linux and I only use Cygwin for practicing bash.
  18. This is a little embarassing.. I do not have time to make my own, so I am going to ask this.. Has anyone repackaged Cygwin with clean uninstaller? It's original installer is whack.
  19. I am very sorry guys.. I will make an update when I get the chance. I am still in a catch-up game with my schoolworks.. (did I say that right? i mean i am still left behind! )
  20. Hey Kapo! I don't think you need to install VDM. All the files are compressed in a zip archive. All you have to do is copy all of those to any directory you want. Or maybe it is better if you can make your own installer for this little program.
  21. Just want to inform you guys that I am not affected by any bugs in the previous versions. Thanks MHz. Long time..
