Interesting Macromedia problem!


Recommended Posts

Right, i have managed to arrange a fairly good (very, by my standards) uninstalled XP DVD, one thing i have come across that weirded me out a little though is that when i tried to transfer all the installation packages to a \software folder and have all of them install from the disk.

What is going on is that when my install goes through the motions it does not install the macromedia packages at all, any regedits will go through but there is no evidence at all of anything on the virtual HDD in VPC.

When installed from the \install folder i don't seem to have any problems at all!

anyone else had anything happen like this or have any idea why it would do this?

both in the same way, using runonceex.

differences are:

REG ADD %KEY%\029 /VE /D "Registering Macromedia Products" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\029 /V 1 /D "REGEDIT /S %PP%Dreamweaver_MX\dreamweaver.reg /f" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\029 /V 2 /D "REGEDIT /S %PP%Fireworks_MX\fireworks.reg /f" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\029 /V 3 /D "REGEDIT /S %PP%Flash_MX\flash.reg /f" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\029 /V 4 /D "REGEDIT /S %PP%Freehand_11.1\freehand.reg /f" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\034 /VE /D "Macromedia Dreamweaver MX" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\034 /V 1 /D "%PP%Dreamweaver_MX\Setup.exe -S" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\034 /V 2 /D "taskkill /F /IM iexplore.exe" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\039 /VE /D "Macromedia Fireworks MX" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\039 /V 1 /D "%PP%Fireworks_MX\Setup.exe -S" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\044 /VE /D "Macromedia Flash MX" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\044 /V 1 /D "%PP%Flash_MX\Setup.exe -S" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\049 /VE /D "Macromedia Freehand 11.1" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\049 /V 1 /D "%PP%Freehand_11.1\Setup.exe -S" /f

just replacing the %PP% with %CDROM%\Software\ for working from CDROM
