I have just installed Quicktime 6.5.2 successfully. I used the following QuicktimeInstaller.ini file to install Quicktime silently:


ConnectionSpeed="1.5 Mbps T1/Intranet/Lan"

I created the following INF file to configure Quicktime following installation:

;Quicktime 6.5.2 Configuration INF

;Please document each entry with a comment.

;This file does the following:

; 1. Disables the Quicktime System Tray Icon
; 2. Disables Quicktime Task (qttask.exe) from loading at startup.
; 3. Deletes the Quicktime folder from the Start menu
; 3. Adds a 'Quicktime Player' shortcut to the Utilities folder
; 4. Copies a pre-configured quicktime preferences file (quicktime.qtp)
;    to the 'All Users\Application Data\Quicktime' folder.


   ProfileItems=QuicktimePlayer, QuicktimeGroup

   HKLM,"Software\Apple Computer, Inc.\QuickTime\ActiveX","QTTaskRunFlags",0x00010001,2

;Remove Quicktime Task (QTTASK.EXE) from running at startup
   HKLM,"%RUN%,"Quicktime Task"

;Add Quicktime Player shortcut to the Start Menu
   Name       = "Quicktime Player"
   CmdLine    = 16422, "Quicktime", quicktimeplayer.exe
   SubDir     = "Utilities"
   InfoTip    = "Apple Quicktime Player 6.5.2"

;Delete the Quicktime Start Menu Group
    Name      = "Quicktime", 0x00000006





   Diskname="Quicktime Installation, Disk #1"
   Run            = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"

I have attached a copy of my Quicktime.qtp file. The main reason for copying the Quicktime.qtp file is to disable the reminder to purchase Quicktime Pro. You can do this by installing Quicktime, setting your computers clock forward 5-10 years and then running Quicktime until the reminder pops up, click Later on the dialog box and the close Quicktime. Set your clock back to the current date and make a copy of the quicktime.qtp file which will be in the "'All Users\Application Data\Quicktime" folder.

The registration info is kept in the QuickTime.qtp file! So once you've installed and registered, your reg name and key is stored in the QuickTime.qtp file

I haven't registered Quicktime so the quicktime.qtp file I uploaded doesn't contain any registration information. Useful to know this for future reference though.

ok, looks promising...

Can you explain how to use the inf file with my install?

I use RunOnceEx.cmd

REG ADD %KEY%\020 /VE /D "Quicktime Player 6.5.1 Pro" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\021 /V 1 /D "REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\Quicktime\QT.reg" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\022 /V 2 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Quicktime\QT.exe /f

REG ADD %KEY%\023 /V 3 /D "REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\Quicktime\QT.reg" /f

REG ADD %Key%\024 /V 4 /D "%SystemRoot%\system32\taskkill.exe /F /IM QuickTimePlayer.exe" /f

all are in QT Directery

I use an INF file to place the RunOnceEx information into the registry so my use of the REG command is a little rusty but the following should work:

REG ADD %KEY%\020 /VE /D "Quicktime Player 6.5.2" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\020 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Quicktime\QuickTime652.exe" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\020 /V 2 /D "rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 128 %systemdrive%\install\quicktime\QuickTimeSettings.inf" /f

This should create one RunOnceEx entry which runs the Quicktime installer and then runs the INF file to make the necessary modifications to the installation.

This is how I install with the full installer, the inf file goes in the folder with the full installer, i've made a SFX for the QuickTime.qtp, and I call it all like this;

REG ADD %KEY%\088 /VE /D "Quick Time 6.5.2 Pro" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\088 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\Software\QT\QuickTimePrefs.exe" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\088 /V 2 /D "%CDROM%\Software\QT\QuickTimeFullInstaller.exe" /f

This works fine for me. :thumbup

Anyone knows if there is any log file that setup creates?

I've launched setup file with .ini file with File Monitor, but havent found.

We're using some kind of control on our setups, and .log file is very useful to know if a setup has completed succesfuly.

Thank you!
