7-Zip

Maybe I'm being thick, but I don't think so.

I've got the first line in my RunOnceEx.cmd file reading:

REG ADD %KEY%\001 /VE /D "7-Zip" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\001 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\7Zip.exe -y /q /r:n" /f

Yet it prompts for everything as if I'd just double clicked it.

The rest of the apps in the list install silently... what am I doing wrong?

This is 7-Zip 4.42, freshly downloaded today.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

could you translate in plain english (or other modern language) ?

about 7-zip, instead of that so old meaningless switches try the standard NSIS switch : "/S" (capital letter)

(and this info is present in FAQs at 7z.org & here)

You have two options for your freshly downloaded file

  1. 7z442.exe - NSIS installer - /S
  2. 7z442.msi - msi installer - /qn

I think you may have the incorrect switches for your particular installer. Also is there a particular reason why you've changed the name of the executable?

It's Latin. It means (roughly) who watches the watchers? Who guards the guards, if you will.

I didn't see the FAQ, I looked on the front page of the application switches sticky.

If I do an update of the disk in 6 months, I'll just save the downloaded newest version over the existing one, so I don't have to fart around changing the RunOnceEx file instead.

Whether or not it's any better is debatable, I guess....

I'll try the /S option, thanks :)
