Somewhere in this topic someone asked how he could silent install a Nero Language Pack. The only answer (for as far I have seen) was copying certain files and edit a registry key. I've made a VBscript, which is alot easier...

Just download your desired language pack and place this in the same directory:(you don't have to extract it, but it's possible if you'd like that)

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject ("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run (".\NAME_OF_YOUR_LANGUAGEPACK.EXE")
WScript.Sleep 5000
WshShell.SendKeys "~"
WScript.Sleep 1000
WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}"
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys "{UP}"
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys "~"
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys "~"
WScript.Quit

Save this with the filename you wish, but don't forget the vbs-extension!

hope it's useful for someone...

DirectX9 does not support silent install unless you hack it?

The OPK version that is "floating around" is not an official Microsoft release?

Zone Alarm Free 4-5-538

While trying to install Zone Alarm Free in CMDLINES.TXT, I always got this error message from Zone Alarm: "Could not find config file c:\Documents.". When I closed this error window, Windows would sent me another message stating that it ocurred an error (critical error), so that the installation was not completed successfully.

There was no way to find out what was going on. I've searched Zone Labs knowledge base but I couldn't find any help.

I wanted to install Zone Alarm in CMDLINES.TXT because the configuration would stick to all users created after this installation.

I had to change my initial procedure a little bit, but I managed to install it the way I wanted.

Here goes my solution:

1. Install Zone Alarm Free 4-5-538 in a computer running Windows XP and, after configuring it the way you want, copy the hidden file c:\WINDOWS\system32\zllictbl.dat removing the hidden attribute. This file stores some config information for Zone Alarm.

2. From this installation, export the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm\Registration

3. In CMDLINES.TXT, import the following configuration to the registry (contains the user information):

(start /wait REGEDIT /S zapHKCU.reg)

thanks for the ZA pro info, pfear, i was looking for it.

well, I know that this thread now resembles a dead one and is unwieldy large, but anyway, here goes some info I had discovered -

Most apps that use InstallShield or MSI for an installer support the "blah-blah.exe /A" syntax, i.e., the /A switch is something that you'd execute on the exe or the msi file yourself, and create a "network server image" for the install. In simpler terms, "setup.exe /A" allows you to create an administrative install point. Just compress and SFX the resultant folder with winrar or 7zip to see major size drops. Then, during install, run the exe to silently extract itself to a known location, and run "XYZ-app.msi /QB" to install silently. In most cases apps can be converted from "XYZ.exe /S /v/qb" to "XYZ\setup.msi /QB". An example below:

ECHO Installing Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0.1
start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Applications\AR6.exe
start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Applications\AdobeReader6\AcroRead-6.0.1.msi /QB

I've found that this method of installing from an administrative install point works for Acrobat Reader 6, VMware 4.0.5, Partition Magic 8, Sun Java VM, and many other apps.

The biggest benefit is the space you save. The above three apps went from 45 to 33 MB for me. If you want to eliminate some junk, you can do so by deleting the win9x, NT4 and win2k related files from the administrative install point folder.

Advantages : You can cut down an installer's size by half, and also the time taken for that app to initialise setup and install is slashed.

Diskeeper 8 Pro can be installed the above way, but it for some reason it doesn't seem to like it - you keep getting error messages after install that "dkservice.exe has encountered an error and needs to be shutdown".

Also, some apps can be installed, and then copied over directly, they don't need an installer to import stuff into your "Windows\System32" and "Program Files" folders.

Some of these are -

1. Abiword 2.0.2

2. IrfanView 3.85 + plugins

3. mIRC 6.12

4. Mozilla FireBird browser 0.7

5. Mozilla ThunderBird e-mail client 0.4

6. MyIE2 web browser 0.9.13

7. Reget Download Manager 3.3

8. WinImage 6.10

Hoping this helps a lot of people slim their CD and\or add new programs to it.

For Firebird 0.7 some registrykeys can be added to make sure most plugins, like flash etc., install correctly.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Mozilla\Mozilla Firebird]
"GeckoVer"="1.0.1"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Mozilla\Mozilla Firebird\bin]
"PathToExe"="C:\\program files\\MozillaFirebird\\MozillaFirebird.exe"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Mozilla\Mozilla Firebird\Extensions]
"Plugins"="C:\\Program Files\\MozillaFirebird\\Plugins"
"Components"="C:\\Program Files\\MozillaFirebird\\Components"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\mozilla.org\Mozilla]
"CurrentVersion"="1.5"

Make sure these are added before installing the plugins
