Thank You for this update.

One question: Your version is english only. How is it possible to install silent in other language like german?

Usually i used the /S-switch. What happend with the -ms-Switch? What are the differences?

TIA

There's no difference; -ms was originally used, but is now deprecated in favor of /S...

Hi i used wpi to install firefox with this command:

"%wpipath%\Install\Firefox 3.5.2\setup.exe" /INI=%wpipath%\Install\Firefox 3.5.2\ff.ini -ms

this is my ini:

[install]

; The name of the directory where the application will be installed in the

; system's program files directory. The security

; context the installer is running in must have write access to the

; installation directory. Also, the directory must not exist or if it exists

; it must be a directory and not a file. If any of these conditions are not met

; the installer will abort the installation with an error level of 2. If this

; value is specified then InstallDirectoryPath will be ignored.

; InstallDirectoryName=Mozilla Firefox

; The full path to the directory to install the application. The security

; context the installer is running in must have write access to the

; installation directory. Also, the directory must not exist or if it exists

; it must be a directory and not a file. If any of these conditions are not met

; the installer will abort the installation with an error level of 2.

; InstallDirectoryPath=c:\firefox\

; By default all of the following shortcuts are created. To prevent the

; creation of a shortcut specify false for the shortcut you don't want created.

;

; Create a shortcut for the application in the current user's QuickLaunch

; directory.

QuickLaunchShortcut=false

;

; Create a shortcut for the application on the desktop. This will create the

; shortcut in the All Users Desktop directory and if that fails this will

; attempt to create the shortcuts in the current user's Start Menu directory.

DesktopShortcut=false

;

; Create shortcuts for the application in the Start Menu. This will create the

; shortcuts in the All Users Start Menu directory and if that fails this will

; attempt to create the shortcuts in the current user's Start Menu directory.

StartMenuShortcuts=true

; The directory name to use for the StartMenu folder.

; note: if StartMenuShortcuts=false is specified then this will be ignored.

; StartMenuDirectoryName=Mozilla Firefox

Can someone please tell me why it keeps making the shortcuts i dont want it too?

thank you very much.

PS: Im new here sorry if this is the wrong section.

Hi, fyi I just did place Firefox 3.5.3 to my unattended Windows XP cd, but the /S switch does not work, it still acts like normally interacted setup.

I used the old one: Firefox353.exe -ms

Dunno, if this is the "old" switch, but it's the one that worked for me.
