  1. Thanks shooter. These are the items that this forum sorely lacks: quick reference pages giving users options about how to customize their installs, rather than pre-packaged solutions that work for one peron with one particular set of options. Please keep up the work.
  2. Problem is that I didn't want it without Quicktime, I want it with.
  3. Bump... Also thought that I'd point out that I was able to get iTunes to work by downloading the QuickTime standalone installer, running that first, then installing iTunes as above.
  4. So I extracted the iTunes installer to it's own folder, and tried to silently install it using the following entry with RunOnceEX REG ADD %KEY%\040 /VE /D "iTunes Setup" /f REG ADD %KEY%\040 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\Software\Applications\iTunesSetup\iTunesSetup.exe /S /V\"ISSETUPDRIVEN=0 SILENT_INSTALL=1 INSTALL_DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS=0 ASSUME_QT_DEFAULTS=0 ASSUME_MEDIA_DEFAULTS=1 ALLUSERS=1\ /QN"" /f When it's done installing windows and all the applications, I see iTunes listed, but when I try to run it, it tells me it can't start cause it's missing some necessary components. I also see no evidence of QuickTime anywhere in the system (I'm trying otge this going in a VM first). Anyone got any thoughts?
  5. Anyone tried installing silently with Quicktime? I have an iPod video myself, so the use of Quicktime is actually something I need (though i use WMP for my real video watching). If not, I'm rebuilding my silent install now and will let you guys know how it goes.
  6. Again, the stickies are 20 pages long, and they only list what that person specifically does. No definitions on what each of the switches do (some are obvious, others are not), and it's inconsistant format for each person's reply. A general database listing applications, versions, and switches (and other info if needed) that is an abstract for someone to build their own solution, rather than someone's pre-made package, so that people can learn and adapt on their own rather than always going to others is what I'm looking for. As for implementation, I'd be happy to take a look at providing some form of solution to this problem in 4 months when I'm finished school and have some more spare time. But, in the mean time, I'm having trouble with the iTunes solution you provided (at least at the VM level, haven't tried production yet). I'm installing iTunes with RunOnceEx. However, it appears that QuickTime is not installing as part of the package with RunOnceEx. Trying to open iTunes after install, and restart, it tells me that it couldn't open because some of the components are missing. And as noted in the other thread, iTunes does not appear in the Add/Remove Programs list. Doing a manual (double-click exe) installation afterwards from the extracted package, it installs iTunes again, but the Quicktime Installation fails with "Error Code 3" (though iTunes now appears in Add/Remove Programs). This occurs even after a remove (restart included) and re-install is attempted. Installing from the non-extracted package after all this works without a hitch though. Any thoughts?
  7. Thanks for the response. I tried to read through your iTunes topic. Guess the information was is buried somewhere in the 20 pages of replies. Not to critisize, but I think something that would be really useful would be a section or set of stickies dedicated to the switches available for each application. Repackaged installers are great (and appreciated), but info on how to customize it for yourself in a dedicated area would be superb.
  8. Hey guys, I've been googling, and trying to find it here, but haven't found the info I'm looking for. I want to run silent installers for iTunes 6 and for Firefox. For iTunes, I want QuickTime included, but have desktop icons removed and not have QT as the default for media. For firefox, just a basic install, pre-plugins, extentions, and themes (I'll do those myself later as they change depending on the machine type). The QFA and DevTools off, no desktop icons, but keep start menu and quick launch. My preferance is to not have to repackage the installers (if I have to extract them, that's alright, I'll leave them extracted. Building a DVD install disc and still have 2.5 GB of space left). Thanks
  9. Thanks for the reply. I didn't have much success with Ryan's .NET 2.0 installer, so that's why I was avoiding it here. Guess I'll jsut stick with copying it to disk and installing it from there rather than directly off the CD.
  10. Hi all, Working on my first unattended install disc for XP, and found this place a great source for info. THANKS!!!! I'm hitting a bump in the process right now though. I'm trying to do an application install, using the RunOnceEx method from CD outlined here. While my other applications are installing well, the .NET Framework 1.1 isn't happening. During the install, I get a dialog box prompting me to insert the .NET Framework 1.1 CD and click Okay. Trying to install from .NET redistribute package, extracted to own directory. Any ideas? (install script attached) keyinstalls.cmd
