Hey this may be a dumb question, but i could not find the answer through search...

I'm trying to make a silent installer for opera 9.5, i got the exe, and if i run it with "/?" it says that "/S /v/qn" is for silent install.

The problem is that it don's et it self as standard browser or install any shortcuts...

Anybody know how to do that?

Run the .exe, then after first screen goto your temp folder (C:\Documents and Settings\Your Name\Local Settings\Temp) and copy the .msi file located in a folder from there (Opera installer.msi).

Then read here

I personally preffer the classic installer, as it's ~2mb smaller, installs faster and as i'm not really a big fan of msi installers in general(they're bloated and leaves a copy of the installer in '%windir%\Installer' etc...)

Anyway, the classical installer is hidden on the Opera homepages download section, but can be found by selecting 'Show other versions > Windows' and then selecting the latest version on the top of the list...

The classic installer is a Wise installer which accepts the '/s' command-line argument for silent installs and it will by default make the desktop, quicklaunch and start menu shortcuts, but you'll still need to add the reg-entries for making it the default browser on your system...

These are the exact ones Opera sets:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[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\https]
"EditFlags"=hex:02,00,00,00

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

[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\Opera.HTML]
@="HTML Document"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.HTML\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\Program Files\\Opera\\opera.exe,1"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.HTML\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Opera\\opera.exe\" \"%1\""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.Image]
@="Image"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Opera.Image\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Opera\\opera.exe\" \"%1\""

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

Don't know why to complicate what it't easy.

Just download opera installer and use

Opera_964_en_Setup.exe /S /v"/qn CREATE_DESKTOP_ICON=1 CREATE_QUICKLAUNCH_ICON=1 CREATE_STARTMENU_ICONS=1 ALLUSERS=1"

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""quotes are the answer""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Could not find this simple solution anywhere... hopefully now I can give my contribute, hope it helps
