I can't install Soundblaster Live drivers silently

Recommended Posts

I have extracted files from LiveDrvUni-Pack(ENG).exe and installed drivers normally with -r switch to obtain the response file setup.iss.

Now, when I try to install drivers in silent mode with -s -f1"MyDirectory\setup.iss" switches, the setup process doesn't start at all but I obtain only a setup log with a ResultCode=-105 (For succesfull setup the value should be 0)

The sound card is a Live Player 1024

Any suggestions?

you might have the iss file pointed to wrong.

i'm not sure if the "\MyFolder" thing works. I used teh %systemdrive% variable so i don't have to worry about locations.

but i had that error, and makin sure it pointed to teh file in the right folder helped.

The path where is setup.iss is right and precisely I use "%systemdrive%\drivers\sblive\audio\setup\setup.iss". I have tried several times and I alwais obtain a resultcode=-105. What does it mean?

yeps.. well, i install the audigy drivers but im sure they contain live drivers too.. its all to do with the setup.iss.. follow the guide

http://unattended.MSFN.org/xp/applications...stallshield.htm

i use the command.. setup.exe -a -r -f1"c:\setup.iss" to record my options ..you'll find your setup.iss in c: then copy it over

only thing i do different..

The /a switch causes Setup.exe to perform an administrative installation. An administrative installation copies (and uncompresses) your data files to a directory specified by the user, but does not create shortcuts, register COM servers, or create an uninstallation log.

hmmm probably better off without it :)

Don't know if this will work for everyone but it does for me.

I copied the root files, and two directories ('winxp_2k' & 'common')from //Audio/Drivers on my Soundblaster Live CD into a directory called 'LiveDrv' on my XPCD as shown below. The /s switch on CTZAPXX.exe appears to give a silent driver install. I call this up out of my main_batch.cmd file as shown below:

start /wait %systemdrive%\Drivers\Sound\Creative\LiveDrv\CTZAPXX.exe /s

No surround mixer with this, just the drivers, but that's all i want :-) Only downside is that it takes 34.5MB of my CD up :) I'm sure i (you) could trim this down :rolleyes:

Hope this helps someone. Great forum & my 1st post :D

Is there anything for the Sound Blaster Audigy by any chance? (I'm assuming those are for the Sound Blaster Live only)

You are aware that the Soundblaster Drivers folder needs to be referenced in winnt.sif as well, right? Just checking.
