Silent .NET Maker synthesized 20100118 - W2K/XP/2K3 x86

Recommended Posts

The error occurs at unpacking of a language package dotnetfx35langpack_x86ru.exe. Probably at work of VBS script

Do you mean the following error? If yes it's due to W7 not ultimate nor enteprise editions restriction.

No. If you use -gm1 switch ExtractPathTitle it is not used, believe or check up once again.

In parametre ErrorTitle there is no necessity. Read its description attentively.

I tested it and works as I expected. I think you're meaning that this settigns are not needed as sfx module takes the file name to fill dialog title by default, and in that case I would agree with you; but I used those settings for the case someone change the filename, for the dialog to keep the original filename intentionally.

Add parametre FinishMessage for indication of process of end of installation.

Remove UPX module compression. The economy is insignificant (50 KB), and problems with antiviruses can be. IMHO a

I really think it is not needed a finish message, when .NET install dialogs dissapear that's it, and one can always use the -fm# switch, but maybe for passive installers I could add a finish message for a few seconds... What do you think about it folks?

About UPX compression, I'm seeing in virustotal.com symantec and comodo AV keep marking it as suspicious nowadays, so I'm going to bring back the option to compress it or not in _SNMsynth.ini for the next version.

Maybe optionally (by _SNMsynth.ini), f.e. I need passive installer w/o delays & msgboxes, because I use it at T-12 via cmdline.txt...

Yes. But I have Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)

Yes. Excuse my bad English. :blushing:

About FinishMessage... Your will, you is author.

About UPX compression... Your will, you is author. But change LZMA to LZMA2 will give big than 50 KB (UPX) economy.

I think I'm going to include the option in the .ini, and include the switch and link to 7zsfx mod switches in the guide.

Apparently the error message is asking you to install w7x64 russian MUI for your russian w7x64, what does not make any sense, but anyway you can try it. Otherwise that .NET langpacks may not be supported on W7x64. Got to make test on compressión options, I haven't used LZMA2 yet because 7zsfx modified based on 9.## 7-zip version is not stable yet.

LZMA2 isnt better than LZMA. It is faster and more multi-core optimized, but LZMA compress much better. Try to use 7-Zip 4.65 and you will see it.

Haven't tested but that's what I thought also after reading the 7-zip 9.10 help about LZMA2. I though a real compression leap would happen only for a really large file. Ultimately I was thinking to make tests combining cab and LZMA compression, I'll see.

LZMA vs LZMA2:

Has created XPDNF20SP2ru.exe (17 538 978 B ) COMPRATIO=HIGHER.

Has taken archive XPDNF20SP2ru.7z (17 480 798 B ), has unpacked it (82 386 915 B ).

Has compressed with LZMA (my command line), the size of archive - 17 197 156 B.

Has compressed with LZMA2 (the same command line, it is changed only the compression method on LZMA2), the size of archive - 17 181 221 B.

PS "gora" is not Гора, "gora" is Жора. :)

17 197 156 - 17 181 221 = 15 935 ~ 15 Kb.

LZMA2 SFX size is ~ 3Kb bigger than LZMA. Total difference ~ 12 Kb.

But UPX compression of SFX gives us (as you say) ~ 50 Kb.

Well.

Has created XPDNF11SP1ru20SP2ru30SP2ru35SP1ru.exe (46 506 899 B ) COMPRATIO= blank.

Has taken archive XPDNF11SP1ru20SP2ru30SP2ru35SP1ru.7z (46 448 614 B ), has unpacked it (289 622 059 B ).

Has compressed with LZMA (my command line), the size of archive - 45 998 972 B.

Has compressed with LZMA2 (the same command line, it is changed only the compression method on LZMA2), the size of archive - 45 945 433 B.

Has created my XPDNF11SP1ru20SP2ru30SP2ru35SP1ru.exe (46 042 987 B ) this out UPX commpression!

Resume:

LZMA2 better LZMA on 53 529 B.

7zsd_LZMA2.sfx (1.4.0 build 1672) - 92 672 B, after UPX compression - 52 736 B (economy 39 936 B ). Minus UPX compression - problems with antiviruses.

My archive SFX is less on 463 912 B.

My archive SFX is not used UPX compression of the module and has no problems with antiviruses.

Leave COMPRATIO= blank to achieve HIGHEST compression ratio.. ;)

Hmmmm... There are multilanguage files. It is for main install & for langpack at the same time?
