I'm just trying to figure out how everything is working before I start with a major installation process during setup.

what I did is created just one cmd to install skype silently however when windows is starting up I get the error message that it can't find the setupskype.exe file.

In order to do this I created a INSTALL folder on my c drive, en I also did this in the windows unattended setup files where I copied the setup.exe file into but this doesn't do the trick either :-(

then I tried to execute this cmd and I get this error message mentioned above

can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

this is the code

cmdow @ /HID
@Echo Off

SET PP=%SystemDrive%\Install\

SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installeren van Programma's" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\000 /VE /D "skype 1.4" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\000 /V 1 /D "%PP%SkypeSetup.exe /VERYSILENT /SP-" /f

EXIT

thanks for your help

Paul

This is what part of mine looks like. I dont know what the command %PP% does ?, but should'nt it be %PP%\SkypeSetup.exe. You have no \ in yours.

cmdow @ /HID

@echo off

FOR %%i IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\win51ip.SP2 SET CDROM=%%i:

SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Unattended Program Installation" /f

DEL "%systemroot%\Cursors\*.cur"

REG ADD %KEY%\010 /VE /D "Removing Windows ZIP Folders" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 1 /D "%systemroot%\System32\regsvr32.exe /s /u zipfldr.dll" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\011 /VE /D "My Hosts" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\011 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\Support\Stuff\Hosts.exe" /f

@Shawnee I don't know if I need to add a slash since this automaticly generated by the Runoncecmd creator.

so this is why I don't understand why it doesn't work

in the runonce creator I did select the following :

include CMDOW with program Path set to %SystemDrive%\Install\

then in description I altered the line from the data base because in here is only skype .95 beta (modified this to Skype 1.4 and safed the file as

skype.cmd

which contains the following script :

cmdow @ /HID
@Echo Off

SET PP=%SystemDrive%\Install\

SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Programs" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\000 /VE /D "skype 1.4" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\000 /V 1 /D "%PP%SkypeSetup.exe /VERYSILENT /SP-" /f

EXIT

since the PP variable is mentioned with the slashed I don't think I have to repeat the slash at the command line or am I wrong

thanks for the help and feedback

If you expand PP then PP is fine.

error message that it can't find the setupskype.exe file. is different to SkypeSetup.exe you have in your script?

@Mhz I translated the errormessage ruffly this morning since I'm Dutch and it was still early however this is the current situation.

or can I remove the PP and simply add %systemdrive%\Install\skypesetup.exe

and make sure I have the skype setupfile in the c:\install directory?

which of the options should work the best?

thanks for your help and feedback.

Are the filenames in the CMD and the FileName of the SkypSetup identical. that means, they have to be the exact same name...

this is the code
cmdow @ /HID
@Echo Off

SET PP=%SystemDrive%\Install\

SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installeren van Programma's" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\000 /VE /D "skype 1.4" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\000 /V 1 /D "%PP%SkypeSetup.exe /VERYSILENT /SP-" /f

EXIT
