  1. That is a good point. I have directly integrated files into an XP CD before. However, I can think of two reasons why this project would be beneficial: 1) it is much easier to add an addon with nLite; and 2) you have a great compression ratio with this installer. However, the thread where I posted my screensaver pack is now locked because I did not realize that four of the screensavers were ported from Vista. I was unaware of this fact because I have barely even used Vista (I only played around with it for less than an hour and I was not impressed). I found those screensavers on a freeware website and the link to the 'creator' was to joejoe.org. Anyways, I walk away from this with a good bit more knowledge on how to create Inno Setup installers with selectable components, which I couldn't do before. I'm glad I learned this skill because I think it will help me make better installers in the future. That's all I have to say. Peace.
  2. The installer (NSIS based) uses a /S silent switch. However, it give an error message "Silent installation is currently not supported.". Therefore, it can't be done without re-compiling the installer.
  3. When you install it, go to Start > All Programs > FusionSolid Screensaver Compilation > Credits. Each screensaver is listed and when you click on the name, it will take you to the creator's website. I made two of the screensavers, by the way, so that's why FractalBox and Tunnel take you to my website. This is just the first version. I hope to continue adding more to it and expanding the credits and everything. However, if you want a list of the websites, here goes: http://www.joejoe.org/forum/ (Aurora, Bubbles, Ribbons, Mystify) http://www.reallyslick.com/ (Cyclone, Euphoria, Field Lines, Flocks, Flux, Heilos, Hyperspace, Lattice, Plasma, Skyrocket, Solarwinds) http://www.screensaverfx.com/ (Fantastic Fish) http://www.maddogsw.com/ (Flurry) http://www.fusionsolid.com (FractalBox, Tunnel) http://sourceforge.net/projects/matrix32/ (Matrix Reality) BTW, since I used so many from reallyslick.com, I emailed the author directly and he gave me permission to use all of his screensavers.
  4. This is the project I asked about before. They are all freeware and widely distributed on the internet. Furthermore, all of them came as .scr, not executable installers. This is version 1.0, containing 20 screensavers and the installer is 9 MB. I'm including 3 versions - just a plain installer, an automated silent installer, and an nLite cab addon. Screenshots
  5. I'm glad at least someone wanted this. I ran across this software about 3 weeks ago. I made the unattended installer for the fun of it and wanted to upload it then, but I couldn't remember my password to MSFN Forums. Thus, I couldn't upload it then. Well, I was lazy and only got around to recovering the password until yesterday. So, although you requested it first (and I just recently realized that you did), I was going to upload it even before that. Anyways, I tested it out on a virtual machine install and it worked perfect. And it does look like a promising software. Nice features and functionality, especially for a first release.
  6. I see the big "last warning" banner above talking about not posting anything not appropriate. I don't want to cause trouble, so I want to ask to make sure. I have found quite a few nice freeware screensavers from www.freewarefiles.com that are just .scr screensavers - no installer. Can I compile them into one installer to make them for an nLite addon? I can post their origins so people can verify they are freeware and give credit to the authors. And I'm not decompiling anything. I just want to group them together. Would that abide by the rules?
  7. I'm not sure if there will be a big demand for it, but this little bugger was a little challenging - and I like the challenge. Description from their website: Download as silent installer Download as nLite addon File size: 26MB each http://www.cheatbook.de/
  8. Looks like you will be able to make it easily with the help of this website: http://maaruthi.wordpress.com/2008/04/03/d...-installations/
  9. Did you name the 7z archive 8 characters or less? Also, I would shorten the name of the .msi file, too and take out the periods. http://www.msfn.org/board/7-Zip-Switchless...ler-t39048.html
  10. This is their version from May 2008. It is freeware. Future versions will cost $. Download: UltimateDefrag as an unattended installer UltimateDefrag as an nLite addon
  11. NLite is the way to go. First, copy all the files from your XP CD to a folder on your hard drive (I usually call it XP). Then when you run nLite, point to the XP folder. Once you have nLite installed, it is so easy to use, you almost won't need any instructions. The one thing I tripped up on the first time I used it was I wasn't selecting components, so it skipped right past them. Here's where to select components: Also, you need to burn the ISO file correctly. The easiest way to do that is with ISOBurner. http://www.ntfs.com/iso_burner_free.htm And another thing, to get the disc to autorun while booting up, you have to make sure that the CDROM is the first boot device in your BIOS.
  12. That's exactly what I was going to suggest. Go to the website of your motherboard's manufacturer. Just make sure you get the right bios or you may corrupt the system. Also remember that you will lose all your settings in the bios, so you may want to take note of your current settings.

  14. I think this may be something you will find useful: http://www.msfn.org/board/SFXMaker-10-Beta...l=winrar+silent
  15. OK, I barely know how to make a multi-boot disc (but I have done it). I know nothing about Linux except it saved me recently by being able to read a hard drive that nothing by MS could read. So, I want to put Slax on my "rescue DVD". The XP installer starts up correctly but Slax gives me the error: "Image checksum error, sorry". Is there any way around this? BTW: I made my bootable image with MagicISO, if that is any help.
