  1. I´m just a little bit confused here... :wacko:

    Dear MCT and dear yoz7120; I cant´t find any post about installing the msn messenger 7 beta silently in this forum.

    I have tried the same method as with the 6.xxx but that doesn´t work on the 7 beta.

    So please direct me to the right post.

    Thanx in advance

  2. This is how I do it - and it works for me :thumbup

    If you have winrar installed, just right click your favorites folder & choose add to archive, select create SFX archive, click best for compression, click comment at the top right & paste:

    The comment below contains SFX script commands

    Path=%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\SwedenXP\Favoriter

    In Your main_batch.cmd You have;

    ECHO Installing Favoriter
    ECHO Please wait...
    start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\Favoriter\Favoriter.exe

    And it works just beautifully :w00t:

    That is, in principle I agree with Swampy with a few mods and some extras...

  3. This is how I do it - and it works for me ;)

    I run the diskeeper exe file, aborts the installation and from the C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Installations\Diskeeper Professional\

    I pull the .msi file B)

    The .msi goes into my \$OEM$\$1\Install

    In my main_batch.cmd I have

    ECHO Installing Diskeeper Professional Edition 8.0

    ECHO Please wait...

    start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Diskeeper\Diskeeper.msi /qn


    It works fantastic B)

  4. I have an old graphic card (Nvidia Geforce 4 MX 440) and at the moment I am running the "NVIDIA Display Driver for Windows 2000/XP ver 45.23, 07/28/2003" and it works just fine.

    I have tried some of the new drivers from Nvidia but they tend to use more memory :angry: .

    Are there any advantages in using a newer driver :blink: ? And which do You recommend?

  5. Found this in antother thread...

    / SwedenXP :whistle:


    The installer for the products using the Web Install-Engine allows it to proceed an unattended installation for endusers.

    Unattended Installation of the Ahead Product without storing the serial number in the registry

    setup.exe /silent /sn="XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"

    There are several types of serial numbers. The used type of a serial number defines the structure of the start menu part of the product. This allows it install a product on several systems with one serial number. The customer has then to enter the serial number after the first start of the product (or the customer uses the Demo Mode if the product supports this)

    Unattended Installation of the Ahead Product. The serial number will be stored in the registry

    setup.exe /silent /sn="XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX" /write_sn

    Remark: This method works only for retail and for dummy serial numbers. This does not work for OEM serial numbers!

    The next start of the product depends on the serial number used:

    If the serial number is a valid retail serial number then the product can be used as normal

    If the serial number is only a dummy serial number then this serial number can only be used for the installation. The serial number defines the structure of the start menu part of the product. If this dummy serial number is stored in the registry then the Demo button is not there. The user has to enter a valid serial number before the product can be used.

    Unattendend and invisible installation of a Webversion:

    if you use the SFX file and the installer shall be started invisible and without any user interaction. Then please use the following parameters:

    /silent=1 /silent /no_ui

    Additional parameters for the unattended installation:


    Normally English and System language would be installed.

    With the language parameter you are able to install additional languages

    /setlang=<language> sets the language to use for the application (since Nero

    /no_ui Disables the user interface during a silent installation.

    /path="<target path>" defines the target path for the installation (ahead folder)

    /silent The installer will be started in silent mode.

    /silent=1 The Selfextracting-Engine also will be started invisible also

    /nocancel Disables "Cancel" button in the "process installation" dialog

    /noreboot Disables "Reboot" button in "bye" dialog

    Language definitions:

    CHT Chinese (Traditional)

    CHS Chinese (Simplified)

  6. This works for me :D

    Place it in Your main_batch.cmd and You can do both the install and register it at the same time :D

    ECHO Installing Nero

    ECHO Please wait...

    start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Nero\nero63120.exe /silent /noreboot /no_ui /sn=xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx /write_sn

  7. I have been a member of this forum since late september last year and I have a lot to thank You all for! The things I have learned here - I don´t think that it would have been possible to learn these things enywhere else :)

    :rolleyes: There is one final thing I haven´t mastered yet... and it´s probably easy, when I know how to...


    My harddrive is partitioned in several logical drives. I have a complete "unattended install" on drive D.

    I would like to boot my computer as simple as possible. Access drive D and start the "unattended install". This instead of burning a cd with every update and installing from it.

    So gentlemen, and women :D

    Please give me an advice on how to do this. I have looked into Bart PE-builder, but... no... :D

  8. Quote from http://www.MSFN.org/unattended/xp/officexp...xp_advanced.htm

    "Please note that you can only run a slipstream if you have PRO.msi or PROPLUS.msi, you cannot slipstream if your Office XP disc contains PRORET.msi."

    One of the differences between corp. and ent. versions - but they are all PRO.

    When You find the right version - it will work just fine. I did a slipstreamed, updated version and kept it on an own cd with an "tailored" .MST file and a .bat file to run it - works great!

  9. Hello;

    First some questions to You :)

    In which enviroment are You installing?

    An install on a real HDD or an install on a simulated HDD, ie Virtual PC or WMware?

    If it´s on Virtual PC or WMvare Your graphic driver won´t install and the driver directory will remain on Your HDD... As far as I know - and that is also my own experience.

    As for the no reboot I am also a bit curious...

    Good luck and please tell me if You get it to work perfectly.

  10. When I try to slipstream the updates into the office pack I get this message;

    Windows Installer

    It´s not possible to install the correctionfile for the upgrade because the program which is to be updated may be missing or the correctionfile is created for antoher version of the program. Check that the program which is to be upgraded is intalled and that you have the correct correctionfile.



    1. I have a swedish Office XP and these updates I´m supposed to slipstream are all ENU - english. Is that a problem?

    2. I use antoher path to my admin install of OfficeXP and thus I change the paths whereever I need to change them. I have tried to do the "slips" manually from the commandpromt - but same result - a windows installer Pop-up.

    A bit :rolleyes: an slightly :)
