  1. I do not let nLite integrate WMP11. I use Windows Media Player 11 Slipstreamer by Boooggy and n7Epsilon to do it - works like a charm.
  2. Daemon Tools 4.08 (AutoIt Launcher)

    Here's my script. I install SPTD, then reboot, then DT, then remove the crap. REM Daemon Tools Phase 1 START /WAIT %1\!INSTALL\DAEMON\SPTDinst-v160-x86.exe add /q <insert reboot cycle here> REM Daemon Tools Phase 2 START /WAIT %1\!INSTALL\DAEMON\daemon4304-lite(158).exe /S /D=%ProgramFiles%\DTLS_LT\ REM Daemon Tools Phase 3 - uninstall the toolbar for /f "tokens=3*" %%i IN ('reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\DAEMON Tools Toolbar" /v "UninstallString" ^| findstr "REG_SZ"') do "%%i %%j" /S REM Daemon Tools Phase 4 - remove leftover DIR_LOC.CMD "%ProgramFiles%" "RD /S /Q " "_DTLite.xml" You can find DIR_LOC.CMD here.
  3. Storing custom volume label in nLite.ini [Solved]

    Tried again. This time it worked. I wonder why didn't it work earlier. Thank you!
  4. Storing custom volume label in nLite.ini [Solved]

    I tested again with nLite - it stores new settings (e.g. Path) in the .ini and keeps the ISO-Setting. Really? I added this to the end of the nLite.ini file (same place as nLite.exe) : [ISO] ISO_label = TEST and nLite wiped out the whole file and created a new, blank file containing only this: [General] Path1 = CPriority = 2 Am I doing something wrong?
  5. Storing custom volume label in nLite.ini [Solved]

    g-force, thank you, that's exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, it does not work with nLite; nLite will create a blank INI file.
  6. Storing custom volume label in nLite.ini [Solved]

    Bummer. Someone hacking nLite's executable is out of the question I guess?
  7. Ok, I had enough of looking at that rubbish left behind. To remedy this issue, I made a generic script that will locate a directory with the specified files (max 6 can be specified) under it. I attached this script. You should put it to a directory specified in %PATH%. Start the script without parameters (or, insufficient parameters), and you will get the help. Start the script with the right parameters, and you get what you wanted. It gives no other output than the help, so you can call it silent. Now, back to the .NET framework rubbish. Invoke said script like this: @DIR_LOC.CMD "%SystemDrive%" "RD /S /Q " "amd64\filterpipelineprintproc.dll" "i386\filterpipelineprintproc.dll" And the rubbish will be gone. Have a nice day. PS. I wonder if it should be a separate topic; could be quite useful for other matters, too. DIR_LOC.CMD
  8. Storing custom volume label in nLite.ini [Solved]

    Right, I know that, but that's not what I am I looking for. I guess I was not clear about that, let me try again. Entering the same volume label every time you create an ISO is becoming a pain (just build two images per hour, and you will see what I mean). Hence, I am looking for a way to tell nLite to use a specific volume label for the image. The easiest would be if it could be added to the INI file, but it seems that it's not saved there automatically, so I guess it's not possible (or, not documented)...
  9. Hi there, nLite always set the volume label to "WinLite". I have to enter it manually every time because, it seems that it is not saved into the Last_Session.ini. Is there any way to tell nLite to use a specific volume label instead of "WinLite"? Thank you. Edit: Updated the topic title to reflect that it's solved; see post #7 from g-force below.
  10. I usually do that kind of things with ccleaner, and have it scheduled to execute regularly. Right. What I mean is: immediately, after the installation of .NET and its updates. We know it's going to be there, but we don't know its name.
  11. XP install hangs at Administrator account

    Checked the INI file. The "ComputerName = " is empty. I could not find any user accounts apart from the built-in ones. Create a real Admin account and make sure it's not the same as ComputerName in Last_Session_u.ini: [Users] Administrator|||True|Administrators|password|False|True|True Guest|||False|Guests||True|False|False MeMySelfAndI|||True|Administrators|mepassword|False|True|True Then, set auto-login to MeMySelfAndI in Last_Session.ini: [Unattended] ComputerType = Automatic AutoLogon = MeMySelfAndI ...
  12. I could not find any post about unattended/silent installation of the Codegear RAD Studio. I did some research and I got it working, so I thought I would post my findings so others could benefit from it, too. I use Codegear RAD Studio v2009, but I am pretty sure that these parameters are valid for v2007 as well, since it uses the same installer. 1. RAD Studio install SETUP.EXE /s KEY1=<KEY1> KEY2=<KEY2> KEY3=<KEY3> KEY4=<KEY4> LANGUAGE=<LANGUAGE> TARGETDIR="<TARGETDIR>" DEMOSDIR="<DEMOSDIR>" COMMONFILES="<COMMONFILES>" USERNAME="<USERNAME>" USERCOMPANY="<USERCOMPANY>" Required parameters: /s - silent install switch <KEY1>: The first group of your serial number. <KEY2>: The second group of your serial number. <KEY3>: The third group of your serial number. <KEY4>: The fourth group of your serial number. Optional parameters: <LANGUAGE>: The language setting. It is either English, French, German or Japanese. <TARGETDIR>: The directory where you want to install Rad Studio. <DEMOSDIR>: The directory where you want to install the demos. <COMMONFILES>: The directory where you want to install the common files. <USERNAME>: Name of the registered owner. <USERCOMPANY>: Company of the registered owner. Optional toggles (=TRUE or =FALSE): AUTOCHECKFORUPDATES - Obvious. INSTALL_AJAX - I did not find an Ajax installer on my v2009 disk; maybe a leftover from v2007? INSTALL_BOOST - Obvious. INSTALL_DBPACK - Obvious. INSTALL_DEMEANOR - Obvious. INSTALL_HELP - Sounds obvious, but has no effect on v2009 at least. INSTALL_RAVE_REPORTS - Obvious. There are a lot more parameters, but I did not really need them because the serial number will determine what components will be installed. If you are interested, just check the install scripts embedded in SETUP.EXE and you will find these. If you figure out how to use those properly, please post your instructions here. 2. Microsoft document explorer install For some reason, the help system cannot install Microsoft document explorer silently. On top of this, the help system will refuse installation unless Microsoft document explorer is already installed. So, you will need to install Microsoft document explorer prior to installing the help system. You can obtain the Microsoft document explorer installer from several places. There is one on the Rad Studio DVD, too; my script is using that one, so I refer to that when I say: grab a 7-Zip unpacker, extract the archive from the DVD, then run the following command: mFileBagIDE.dll\bag\install.exe /q 3. Help system install Help_Setup.exe /s TARGETDIR=<TARGETDIR> Required parameters: /s - silent install switch <TARGETDIR>: The directory where you want to install the help system. NOTE: The "\HELP" will be appended to TARGETDIR automatically. 4. Importing your license I did not bother with that since this is something you normally do on the first start and not the installation - it is just two clicks. I guess it is possible to copy the license file to the appropriate place and update the appropriate registry keys. 5. Automating the whole process I attached a script that will install both Rad Studio, Microsoft document explorer and the help system in one go. The script is best used on a clean install, where the .NET framework is already installed. See this post for .NET installation. The script is not completely silent; it will ECHO three lines to the screen during the installation, telling you when the installation of a certain component has began. I did this because the process it quite long even on a fast machine, so you don't wonder what's going on. If you don't like it, you can safely comment out these ECHO commands in the script. My script requires only three things to work flawlessly (assuming you have the appropriate permissions on the system): - The RAD Studio DVD in your drive. - 7ZA.EXE in a directory included your PATH variable. 7ZA.EXE is the 7-Zip command line version. Get it here. Without this, Microsoft document explorer won't install, and as a result, the help system won't install neither (unless of course you have Microsoft document explorer already installed). - Edit my script and replace the dummy serial number placeholders with your own serial number in the TARGETPARMS environment variable. While you are editing my script, you may want to update the TARGET* environments variables to your liking as well (if you are not happy with mine). I know the script could be improved, but since it works, I did not bother. If you have suggestions, post them along with the updated script here. RADSTD_U.CMD

  14. XP install hangs at Administrator account

    Post your INI files. (remove private data!)
  15. That's a common mistake. Glad you could resolve it.
