IsoBuster 1.7 registration


Recommended Posts

Evenin' all!

Thanks to all the great advice on these forums i am well on my way to having an unattended DVD with all the apps i want on it!

the next stage that i want to go is the preregistration of IsoBuster on the install to tidy away the little user/serial pop up that comes up for a split second on my install.

I have had a browse through and a search and whereas there are plenty of info for the switches i couldn't find anything for this part of it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Ok here it is.

Use this to install ISOBuster 1.7


To get your regfile, install ISOBuster on your system, and register it. Then open regedit and navigat to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Smart Projects\IsoBuster, and export that entry. You can edit that regfile and delete the other entries. You only need these entries.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Smart Projects\IsoBuster]


If you don't have a serial number, just skip the regfile part. But either way, you still need the taskkill because the installer automatically starts the program. :)

Just had a couple of attempts at getting this working... it all seems to go well apart from the actual registering still...

I included the registry setting as gueded and exported the one from my current registry but only the initial line "ID" was filled in!

what i am going to try now to counteract this is to place the registry location before every ID

for example:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Smart Projects\IsoBuster]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Smart Projects\IsoBuster]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Smart Projects\IsoBuster]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Smart Projects\IsoBuster]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Smart Projects\IsoBuster]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Smart Projects\IsoBuster]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Smart Projects\IsoBuster]

hopefully this will get the message across!

will let you know

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Smart Projects\IsoBuster]
"InstallPath"="C:\\Program Files\\Smart Projects\\IsoBuster"
"Version"="1.7  (Build:"
"TempDirPath"="C:\\Documents and Settings\\Glent\\Local Settings\\Temp\\"

That is a very long list! :lol: IMHO, you don't need most of them if you just want to register the software. Most of the entries in your regfile are automatically generated when you install the program. :)

And "TempDirPath"="C:\\Documents and Settings\\Glent\\Local Settings\\Temp\\" will not work for all users. :P

The entry "InstallPath"="C:\\Program Files\\Smart Projects\\IsoBuster" will not work if you install the program on a different location.

Okay, got interrupted by sleep again ;)

i am going to try the one i said earlier and if this doesn't work i will go through both registries and see where the differences are between activated and none activated and make appropriate changes where necessary...

Hi !

Actually registering for all users does not seem to be that easy after all ... :(

First I tried to load the registry settings (ID 0 to ID 7 or so ) from commands.txt during T12 stage so that the default user gets them and all future users will be registered properly. This did not work in the virtual machine because seemingly those ID`s are computer specific so they only work on one machine.

I then gave up on that idea and wrote myself a little vb script that calls the isobuster.exe after silent installation and fills in the keys through sendkeys. This works obviously but since this happens during the unattended installation those keys only work for the Administrator account so if a new user logs on and tries to use IsoBuster it is not registered.

Any ideas how to register IsoBuster for all users on more than one machine (should at least work in the virtual machine and on my main PC ) ?
