Nlite, How to use Run Once

Recommended Posts

Hello,

In Nlite, where we can put the cd key, and themes, there is an option where we can add a run once. Can someone tell me how to use it ?

For exemple i have a switchless exe where there is all net frameworks with sp. I have made a cab to include it, but only the dotnet 1.1 is installed. Out of nlite, all is well installed. So i think i have to try with this option in nlite, to make it launch after, i think

Please tell me :)

For example, if you put some switchless exe in i386 folder of XP CD, and that exe file is named example.exe, you will add this to run once:

%SOURCE%i386\example.exe

You may notice that I did not included \ after %SOURCE%. I did not, because it's not necessary as this variable already contain one.

I posted a reply but I don't see it..so here goes again

I want to Copy my I386 folder on the D drive to a directory on the C drive called software

I ran..

COPY D:/I386 C:/software

or is it like

COPY %SOURCE%I386 %SYSTEMDRIVE%

It didn't seem to work. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks

Yes, of course !

You tried to copy the WHOLE /i386 folder !

Where is the running system located ?

Where shall the nlited CD install to ?

Shall it be a backup?

If not :

Why are you using nlite to modify the /i386 folder, if you´re replacing it anyway ?

Try XCopy instead. Here's an example:

xcopy %source%\I386 %SystemDrive%\software /I /E /Q

I just made an updated Server 2003 disk with Nlite. I build a lot of server. After the OS installs I typically copy the I386 folder over to the hard drive incase we need it for installing certain software products. I just want it to run once and copy the folder to the hard drive for me.

Try XCopy instead. Here's an example:

xcopy %source%\I386 %SystemDrive%\software /I /E /Q

What is the /I /E /Q?

>xcopy /?

Copies files and directory trees.

XCOPY source [destination] [/A | /M] [/D[:date]] [/P] [/S [/E]] [/V] [/W]
[/C] [/I] [/Q] [/F] [/L] [/G] [/H] [/R] [/T] [/U]
[/K] [/N] [/O] [/X] [/Y] [/-Y] [/Z]
[/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...]

source Specifies the file(s) to copy.
destination Specifies the location and/or name of new files.
/A Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
doesn't change the attribute.
/M Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
turns off the archive attribute.
/D:m-d-y Copies files changed on or after the specified date.
If no date is given, copies only those files whose
source time is newer than the destination time.
/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...
Specifies a list of files containing strings. Each string
should be in a separate line in the files. When any of the
strings match any part of the absolute path of the file to be
copied, that file will be excluded from being copied. For
example, specifying a string like \obj\ or .obj will exclude
all files underneath the directory obj or all files with the
.obj extension respectively.
/P Prompts you before creating each destination file.
/S Copies directories and subdirectories except empty ones.
/E Copies directories and subdirectories, including empty ones.
Same as /S /E. May be used to modify /T.
/V Verifies each new file.
/W Prompts you to press a key before copying.
/C Continues copying even if errors occur.
/I If destination does not exist and copying more than one file,
assumes that destination must be a directory.
/Q Does not display file names while copying.
/F Displays full source and destination file names while copying.
/L Displays files that would be copied.
/G Allows the copying of encrypted files to destination that does
not support encryption.
/H Copies hidden and system files also.
/R Overwrites read-only files.
/T Creates directory structure, but does not copy files. Does not
include empty directories or subdirectories. /T /E includes
empty directories and subdirectories.
/U Copies only files that already exist in destination.
/K Copies attributes. Normal Xcopy will reset read-only attributes.
/N Copies using the generated short names.
/O Copies file ownership and ACL information.
/X Copies file audit settings (implies /O).
/Y Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
existing destination file.
/-Y Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
existing destination file.
/Z Copies networked files in restartable mode.

The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment variable.
This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.
