searching for silent install for 3 programs


Recommended Posts

I got 3 programs that I can't get totaly silent:

sony soundforge 7.0

The installer is a msi, so I can install it with msiexec / i /qb-

But the problem is the registring of it. The serial is asked at the first start of the program, and it looks like it is stored here:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sony Media Software\Sound Forge\7.0\License]

but just importing the key doesn't do the trick :(

anyone got an idea how to do this?

tag&rename 3

just like the other program, rigistering is the problem, installing can be done with the /s switch.

the serial is stored in this location:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


but that large number you see there is differend on every computer, is there any way to get there?


dbpoweramp uses a spoon installer, but it doesn't seem te have a silent switch, any ideas on how to get it silent?


cdex can be installed silent with the /S switch, but is askes a questing at the end about a readme file, how should i kill this?

i've solved 2 of the installs:

tag & rename:

put the key in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Softpointer\Tag&Rename\Config]

(thanx to Fridge-RaideR)


install it this way:

start cdex_151.exe /S

sleep 5

taskkill /F /IM cdex_151.exe

2 down, 2 to go :)

dBpowerAMP Music Converter 10.1

ECHO Installing dBpowerAMP Music Converter 10.1 [Freeware]
start /wait %CDDRIVE%\Applications\Illustrate\dBpowerAMP\dMC-r10.exe "<Silent>"
taskkill.exe /F /IM MusicConverter.exe

That's how i have it in my command script, works for me :)

Note that the switch is actually just <Silent>, but to use this switch from the command line you must enclose it in quotes as i did above (ie "<Silent>") or it won't work because the <> symbols cause issues otherwise.

Oddly the <Silent> switch will work without the quotes from the run box, just not from the command line (or command script)... a weird switch choice indeed...

Regards :)

Everytime soundforge is installed it creates a hardware key based on ur computer's configuration. You need the correct registration key to coincide with the hardware key. Because both change, you can't just import your current key to the registry during an unattended installation and expect it to work.

Use "WinINSTALL LE 2003" to modify sony soundforge.

This software is specially designed to modify msi file.

It could add username and serial, remove useless shorts, select which component to install, set visiable or not...

After revising you will find that nothing switches to be used. The msi file will install silently.

I have use it modified acdsee6.02.msi.

Hope you could succeed.
