  1. I doubt it can be supported. These installers are programs, pure and simple, nothing to unpack. They may contain a script of some sort that can be interpreted, but I doubt anything short of disassembly would do the trick.
  2. Oops, missed that post! Well, thanks for explaining
  3. Thanks for the beta! Have you had any luck getting those cabs I mentioned earlier to extract? All the cabs that I've had trouble extracting came with InstallShield v12 dlls, and the logs show that UE tries to extract them as v5 cabs.. dunno how many versions UE recognises, but these new cabs are obviously different! I don't have any small examples for you to test with unfortunately, but for another example try the 1.2 patch for the game Overlord. PS: tested with the new 1.6 beta.
  4. 7-zip 4.52 beta has been released, now featuring support for extracting MSI and doc files Seems like 7-zip is taking a hint from UE!
  5. Dunno if this has been mentioned yet, but as I'm using the updated unofficial 1.5.0.1, here's an archive where the data1.cab can't be extracted. Thanks for your hard work
  6. Aah, thanks for the swift reply. I didn't have any browser windows open so I didn't realise, but I was still downloading something.
  7. Heya Shark, I just downloaded and installed your 8.1 Extreme build, and it's asking me to reboot. This might be due to installing it over 8.0, I don't know.
  8. While I can't answer your query, I can point you to someone who may be able to help you more than most. I'm referring to RogueSpear, who has a website here (forum here) and also does this sort of thing for a living. I don't know how often he checks this forum. Otherwise, good luck solving your problem, it sounds like quite a puzzle!
  9. Hmm, interesting. Here are two others I found once.. the first one is probably the 16-bit equivalent of yours, and the second looks less versatile, as I don't know if/where you can add the numerical code. Do you know of any documentation on said codes? rundll setupx.dll,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 128 filename.inf rundll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection filename.inf, DefaultInstall Edit: nevermind, I found it: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/En-US/library/aa376957.aspx
  10. No problem and thanks for the update. Out of curiosity, where did you get the .msi file in your installer and how new is it? (I've tried to get an msi from Adobe but the latest was 10.1.4.020 and after I accidentally deleted it they've now taken it down x.x Just get a 'file not found'..)
  11. Thanks for the update, however I think you uploaded the version that includes the media library twice as both files have the same size
  12. Just a notice, in working on my own silent installer I noticed Shockwave was updated to 10.2.0.22.
  13. You can get into the data cabs just fine using Universal Extractor 1.5 ^_^ Don't have much time right now so I hope that helps
  14. Are you sure these two softwares even accept silent switches? If not you could always try e-mailing the authors about adding them.
  15. I think you should be alright just installing it, WMP11 isn't a system component (well, it mostly isn't) so there shouldn't be any conflicts. Don't know for sure though. About virus scanners, my usual reaction to getting a virus is "Oh, hell. Well, it was about time I reformatted anyway.." and often I don't even bother to disinfect my system first. Not that I've gotten a virus more than a handful of times since I got my first computer. I've heard Avast AV is good, and I think that's free. On the other hand I think it also gets quite a few false positives, but I've never looked into it.
  16. Well, to solve your IE7 problems I suggest you use MrNxDmX's Internet Explorer 7 addon, then install the Internet Explorer 7 MUI Pack. Integrating IE7 is quite difficult so you might not be able to install the MUI silently as it might conflict with the addon. On the other hand, it's just an MUI so it's worth a try. As for WMP11 I suggest you read this topic as integrating it along with all the hotfixes is rather involving as well. (I also don't know much about it, but I think there are a number of problems Boooggy had to solve before everything worked)
  17. Glad I could help ^_^ You should be able to install the language pack just fine, but I'll give it a go and see what I come up with. Edit: You'll want this, I suppose. It shows up in Add or Remove Programs after installation. (as a Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 something. It also installs the 2.0 language pack, which shows up there too)
  18. If you're talking about having to use the Integrator or nLite then fair enough, but the addons themselves certainly don't contain any third party programs. Try the switchless installers atleast, you can add them to your install in the same way as you're doing now, except that they don't need any switches. No third party programs needed. Anyway, are you sure that download isn't corrupt or a web-based installer? 2.8 MB is too small for even a standalone .NET 3.0 installer so far as I know. Edit: Indeed, what you were getting was just the bootstrapper. The full package is here. If you don't want a direct link, look on the page where you got the 2.8 MB one and look at the Instructions. At step 2, it says "To download the full redistributable package, rather than the bootstrapper, click the architecture you need below to start the download:".. the download links are below that.
  19. Okay, first of all I highly recommend you use the following switchless installers/addons: RyanVM's DirectX9 addon RyanVM's AIO dotNET installer or RogueSpear's Runtimes installers/addons MrNxDmX's IE7 addon However to begin answering your question, there are some things you should know about the particular things you're trying to install. First off, the installer for .NET 3.0 includes 2.0. There is no reason to install 2.0 first, and it might even cause problems. .NET 3.0 also includes the hotfixes for 2.0. Secondly, you -cannot- install .NET 3.0 after .NET 1.1 without a reboot in between. This will fail. However, as recently found by RyanVM, you can safely install .NET 1.1 -after- .NET 3.0, as counter-intuitive as that may be. There are also several hotfixes available for IE7 that you may want to integrate as well.
  20. Hehe, a pity their new website is perpetually 'coming soon', as I quite liked their products.. they don't do much when you're on a multicore system though, I don't think, nevermind Windows Vista.
