re: Spoon's apps

Spoon's always around, go ask him personally either on his forums or at the Hydrogen Audio forums in the OT section. He's a pretty easy guy to get a hold of. If it's not currently possible to do, just ask if he can alter the installers to make it possible, I'm sure he'll accomodate.

How can the following be installed silently:

Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004

Macromedia Fireworks MX 2004

Unpacked both seem to be done with Installshield.

How can they be installed silently?

There are a few setups to make this seamless and easy

1) Copy the entire CD to a Network Share

2) do a normal install of the application on one machine with the following commandline:

setup -R setup.iss This will give you your installshield response file. Complete the activation process.

Next go into the registry and export the following keys

HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Macromedia ----> save as importme.reg

HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Macrovision -----> save as macrovision.reg

3)

Create bat file called setup.bat with the following inside:

start /wait Setup.exe -s -f1 "setup.iss"

Call .\activate.bat

end

Create another batch file called activate.bat

Inside add the following:

** Note: This points to wherever your "All Users" Profile\ information goes **

md "%All Users%\Application data\Macrovision\Safecast\Product License\"

copy .\*.dat "%All Users%\Application data\Macrovision\Safecast\Product License\"

** Note: The xxxxx.dat file is a hidden file located in this directory structure on the hard drive. So turn on show hidden folders and files **

regedit /s "importme.reg"

regedit /s "macrovision.reg"

Have the five files setup.bat, setup.iss,activate.bat, importme.reg, activate.reg all located whereever you copied your dreamweaver MX 2004 CD to on the network.

Run the setup.bat and the rest will silently take care of itself.

You should be able to use this same process to do Fireworks, just modify the folder structure and Registry keys.

*****************************NOTE:****************************** You need to have a LEGAL License for EACH MACHINE that you run this on. This is just to save the headache of going to the website on every machine for your site license". I am not in the business of helping hackers!!!!!!

*****************************NOTE:******************************

Ex. My client has a 200 user site license for this application. That's a lot of extra work to activate each license one at a time. This way, the license it activated on the initial setup.

*****************************************************************

could some one please post their setup.iss file for the installshield from dreamweaver... i installed like everyone says command line dream.exe -R setup.iss but i can't find the file i searched and searched, i dunno where it puts it, c:\windows ? it's not there... please help...

Hi,

Can someone tell me what is wrong this code for Alcohol 120% v1.9.2.

It does not work for me..

SET PP=%SystemDrive%\

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

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

REG ADD %KEY%\009 /VE /D "Alcohol 120%" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\009 /V 1 /D "%PP%\Install\Alcohol_120\setup.exe /qn" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\009 /V 2 /D "REGEDIT /S %PP%\Install\Alcohol_120\register.reg" /f

Thanks

i guess setup.exe /qn" /f is wrong, because /QN does noa apply to .EXE but .MSI. so

setup.msi /qn" /f is the answer

Well to state the obvious

IF.....

SET PP=%SystemDrive%\

THEN.....

REG ADD %KEY%\009 /V 1 /D "%PP%\Install\Alcohol_120\setup.exe /qn" /f

EQUALS.....

REG ADD %KEY%\009 /V 1 /D "%SystemDrive%\\Install\Alcohol_120\setup.exe /qn" /f

AND.....

REG ADD %KEY%\009 /V 2 /D "REGEDIT /S %PP%\Install\Alcohol_120\register.reg" /f

EQUALS.....

REG ADD %KEY%\009 /V 2 /D "REGEDIT /S %SystemDrive%\\Install\Alcohol_120\register.reg" /f

SO

How many back-slashes do you want?

Try

SET PP=%SystemDrive%

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

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

REG ADD %KEY%\009 /VE /D "Alcohol 120%" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\009 /V 1 /D "%PP%\Install\Alcohol_120\setup.exe /qn" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\009 /V 2 /D "REGEDIT /S %PP%\Install\Alcohol_120\register.reg" /f

or if you use the SET PP for other working apps, then:

SET PP=%SystemDrive%\

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

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

REG ADD %KEY%\009 /VE /D "Alcohol 120%" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\009 /V 1 /D "%PP%Install\Alcohol_120\setup.exe /qn" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\009 /V 2 /D "REGEDIT /S %PP%Install\Alcohol_120\register.reg" /f

This method of using..

SET PP=%SystemDrive%\

And then including a \ in the line of code like..

REG ADD %KEY%\029 /V 1 /D "%PP%\Install\Winrar\Winrar_330.exe /s" /f

Works fine for DVD Decrypter, Nero, Winrar and Office XP.

I can understand what you are saying but for some reason it does not create a second backslash.

All I can tell you is the it fails in such a way that it does not install Alcohol. It happens too quick and I don't get time to read the error message. Is there a way I can test it without doing a full install of windows on my virtual pc?

I'll give your code a try though Yzowl.

i guess setup.exe /qn" /f is wrong, because /QN does noa apply to .EXE but .MSI. so

setup.msi /qn" /f is the answer

I did not realise /qn applies to .msi and not .exe, I thnk this could be the problem. The setup file is definately setup.exe so I will have to look for silent switches which are suitable.

By the way, I used the code I found on Aaron's switch list..

Alcohol 120%

Switch: /qn
Full syntax: setup.exe /qn
Extraction needed: ?

Thanks for all your help guys.

I changed the code so that the first line was like this

SET PP=%SystemDrive%

But it made no difference, the program still did not install. I also don't think that the /qn is the problem either as I have read many posts by people saying that this is what they successfully used.

Any ideas?

:blushing:

I have solved my issue with Alcohol 120% not installing.

I ran setup.exe from a command prompt to see if I could figure out what was happening. The result was the same, nothing... but no errors either.

I then decided to try to execute the setup file by double clicking it. Same thing, nothing.

It was then that I realised I had only copied the 39.5KB setup.exe file to my install directory instead of the 4.09MB setup.msi file. :}

Everything works fine now.... I really feel quite silly for making such a mistake, but hopefully at least my posts could help someone else in the future.
