WinINSTALL LE

Recommended Posts

Well!

Now, you can download my MSI for Winamp 5.03a. I hope you like it.

Here: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=20675&st=0&

However, I can post the instructions here in case anyone needs them. Despite too long to post, I'll find a simple way for that.

Just let me know you want them.

Would be nice if I could get it to work with Dreamweaver MX. Keeps asking for directories. And the .msi is only about 1.77MB in size.

Although I'm a little busy with Adobe Reader 6.0 for the Optional Directory, I can have some time to see your app considering it's not too big to download.

Post the link, reproduce the problem, then let's work! If your app is too big to download, then compress the MSI with WinRAR and email it to me.

i thought Dreamweaver MX uses Installshield not Windows Installer.....

It does use InstallShield. I was trying to create an .msi of it. As for a link, it can be found on Macromedia's website. The file is too big to send via email.

Just something I was playing with.

Then you mean that you want to repackage your app like I did with Winamp?

That is the general idea. I figured out what I did wrong. Some of my smaller apps work fine. The larger ones need the .msi and accompanying folders that get created. Now I'm working on WinInstall seeing the registry entries for Dreamweaver that point to my serial # and sites.

You achieved the most tiring part, I hope you succeed in the remaining part.

Well, I figured it out. Guess I had to make my registry entries prior to the final discover process. Working like a champ.

yeah ... sometimes I restart my computer before the "After" snapshot for any changes and configurations to take effect. It's tiring but worthful.

Adobe Audition 1.5 has been released. I never thought there's such a good replacement for Cool Edit!

Thank you Yazan for your interest.

Sure, you can make a MSI for most apps. This depends on how much time you're willing to spend on a MSI creation.

I can put some examples for creating a MSI from scratch. If you wish, I can start with Ad-aware or Winamp or both.

But, please be informed that WinINSTALL LE does not create setup screens nor you can insert new properties into your project.

However, you won't need both if your purpose is silent installation with your own preferences.

If this is what you want, let me know.
