Hello:

I am ready to install Win 2000 Auto Update and somehow get rid of IE6, and install Opera 9.x instead.

How do I go about installing this newest version during the Auto Update?

Thanks,

Please be a little more verbose, as i haven't got a clue about what you mean by installing "Win2K Auto Update" ???

Anyway, if you're talking about installing Windows, then i would recommend using HFSLIP for slipstreaming all the updates into your install source.

Second, then since you'd also like to ditch IE from Win2K, then i would recommend Fred Vorck's excellent IE removal fileset, which also works together with HFSLIP(you just dump the fileset into a specific folder), and it will in addition to removing IE also get rid of alot of other useless stuff and add some nice tweaks and security settings(you'll also save about 15mb commit and get a much less bloated install with e.g. a gutted registry etc.).

Then for installing Opera, then either make a silent switchless installer by yourself(prefferably IMHO, but it's of course up to yourself), or get a pre-made one from either MSFN's nLite addons scetion or RyanVM's forum, and then integrate it into the install source with HFSLIP(also just dump it into a specific folder).

In my Opera 7z SFX installer, then it installs the Opera MSI installer silently through a batchfile and afterwards copies my pre-configured profile folder over, so that i retain my custom settings.

Here is the single command-line for just installing Opera :


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet]
@="Opera.exe"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.html]
@="Opera.HTML"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.htm]
@="Opera.HTML"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\https]
"EditFlags"=hex:02,00,00,00
"URL Protocol"=

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\https\shell\open\ddeexec]
@="\"%1\""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\https\shell\open\ddeexec\Application]
@="Opera"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\https\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Opera\\Opera.exe\""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\http]
"EditFlags"=hex:02,00,00,00
"URL Protocol"=

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\http\shell\open\ddeexec]
@="\"%1\""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\http\shell\open\ddeexec\Application]
@="Opera"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\http\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Opera\\Opera.exe\""
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.Image]
@="Image"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.Image\shell]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.Image\shell\open]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.Image\shell\open\ddeexec]
@="\"%1\""
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.Image\shell\open\ddeexec\Topic]
@="WWW_OpenURL"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.Image\shell\open\ddeexec\Application]
@="Opera"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.Image\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Opera\\Opera.exe\" \"%1\""
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.HTML]
@="HTML Document"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.HTML\shell]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.HTML\shell\open]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.HTML\shell\open\ddeexec]
@="\"%1\""
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.HTML\shell\open\ddeexec\Topic]
@="WWW_OpenURL"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.HTML\shell\open\ddeexec\Application]
@="Opera"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.HTML\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Opera\\Opera.exe\" \"%1\""
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.HTML\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\Program Files\\Opera\\Opera.exe,1"

Also, you can integrate your drivers and alot of other stuff with HFSLIP, including your custom regfiles etc.

First go to the HFSLIP homepage and read the instructions carefully and then if you're having trouble, then you can post your questions over at MSFN's HFSLIP forum section, where the HFSLIP devs there are always very helpfull and ready to help out where needed, but please make your homework first before posting there ;)

Then if youre having problems with the Opera SFX installer, then the MSFN 'Application Installs' forum section is the place to go ;)

The links for both HFSLIP and Fred Vorck's fileset can be found in my signature...
