Installshield is supposed to be the easiest one. When you create the setup.iss file you can define a destination drive and directory to install to.

But... if your test system for creating setup.iss files doesn't have a secondary drive/partition, then install it to the C:\ drive. Afterwards, open up the setup.iss file and edit the path.

Example:

[InstallShield Silent]
Version=v6.00.000
File=Response File
[File Transfer]
OverwrittenReadOnly=NoToAll
[{51C8741C-4A91-42A6-B6A2-CB891F7398A1}-DlgOrder]
Dlg0={51C8741C-4A91-42A6-B6A2-CB891F7398A1}-SdWelcome-0
Count=4
Dlg1={51C8741C-4A91-42A6-B6A2-CB891F7398A1}-SdAskDestPath-0
Dlg2={51C8741C-4A91-42A6-B6A2-CB891F7398A1}-MessageBox-0
Dlg3={51C8741C-4A91-42A6-B6A2-CB891F7398A1}-SdFinishReboot-0
[{51C8741C-4A91-42A6-B6A2-CB891F7398A1}-SdWelcome-0]
Result=1
[{51C8741C-4A91-42A6-B6A2-CB891F7398A1}-SdAskDestPath-0]
szDir=D:\Program Files\Kerio\Personal Firewall
Result=1
[{51C8741C-4A91-42A6-B6A2-CB891F7398A1}-MessageBox-0]
Result=1
[{51C8741C-4A91-42A6-B6A2-CB891F7398A1}-SdFinishReboot-0]
Result=1
BootOption=0

MSI is there as Windows Installer, just below the Installshield link.

Do you know of any NSIS installers, so I could test on it (except Winamp)?

Thanks, will add some more info on Install Types later :)

edit: INSTALLDIR="C:\Software\Test" seems to have no effect for MSI files (failed on Daemon tools and MSN Messenger 6)

Just a quick question i noticed the post on a quiet install of Partition Magic 8.0 and thought "oops another disk to build and burn" :) put in the switchs as described and then decided to try the new cd in a vmware machine everything worked fine (or so i thought) no errors nothing then checked on my installed programs and no partition magic checked my install folder (as i decided on my build not to delete it) and it was there even runs from the folder and asks for the code just wondering if i missed something in the answer file or a regtweak to get it to register the code any help would be much appreciated. I did take the registry settings for Partition magic and they install fine.

what application is anyone using to put together the equivalent of a CD-Rom ISO image when trying to use a single bootable DVD that will silently install XP, Office XP and and all the other "neccesary" programs.....when making a slipstreamed version of XP Professional and Office XP I used blank CD-R discs and the WIN-ISO application to create the bootable ISO image... when trying to put all of this one DVD the limit of Win ISO is 700 megabytes...what am I missing? Putting these on a single bootable DVD is possible as it is mentioned on this website...but the directions as to how to do it...I can't seem to find...any help would be much appreciated.

Makeing a bootable dvd is easy.

Use Nero burning rom

Select the DVD TAB and look for DVD-ROM Boot click it.

-===============-

remember to rip out the bootable image useing isobuster from your winxp cdrom .

the options are.

Select the boot.img you ripped with isobuster.

click on enable advanced features.

Kind of emulation : NO EMULATION

Boot Message : Nero Boot-Loader V6.0 (optional)

get the following 2 parts wrong and you have a coster.

Load Segment Of Sectors (Hex) : 07C0 (Zero, Seven, C for Cat, Zero)

Number of Loaded Sectors : 4

==========================================

ok hope this helps.

Use CDIMAGE 2.47 and any burner software that supports DVD-R

Myself I use the CDBURN and DVDBURN apps from the reskit with no problems

Including Nero, though I don't recommend it for practical reasons

I'm sure some people have very good luck with it,

but some of the reports of conflicts and burnouts I've read over the last year tell a very sad story for most people.

Your own mileage will vary of course

I've never had trouble with Nero...but I've also never burned DVDs with it, either. :)

This is for people who use yahoo messenger....

Program Name : Yahoo Messenger

Program Version : 5.6.1344

Switch : /s

Full : Yahoo.exe /s (i renamed for ease)

Extraction : NO but you need to download the full install and not the web install http://us.dl1.yimg.com/download.yahoo.com/.../ymsgr_1344.exe

[OPTIONAL]

You dont need to register Yahoo, but if you already have it installed and have set many of your preferences then you can export them and then re-apply them here is where to find the key to export

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Yahoo

so it will all look like this

ECHO.

ECHO Installing Yahoo Messenger 5.6.1344

ECHO Please wait...

start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Yahoo\Yahoo.exe /s

ECHO.

ECHO Adding Registry items for yahoo

REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\Yahoo\YPager.reg

ECHO.

ECHO Shutting Down Yahoo Messenger

ECHO Please wait...

PsKill YPager

ECHO.

ECHO Removing Yahoo Messenger shortcut from desktop

DEL "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\Yahoo! Messenger.lnk"

hope this helps any yahoo users out there
