Well here is my first release, I have been working on this for a little bit, and I want to share it.
Info Nero original file size: 370Mb's Nero Unpacked size: 1.74-1.84GB's (depending on what version)
This will step you through all the steps to make a custom installer for Nero 9. I have made it so you cannot remove crucial files.
#1 You need to extract the Nero 9 installer. Now there are 2 ways you can do this. You can use the Extractor (which is at the bottom of the page), or you can use 7zip. Im going to use the Extractor. Extract the Extractor to where the Nero 9 installer is. Then drag the Nero 9 installer onto the the Extractors exe. The Extractor will open and start extracting the files. Wait untill it extracts then rename the extracted folder to "Nero".
#2 Now to remove the applications and languages you dont need. You will need NAR (which you can get at the bottom of the page). Extract it into the Nero folder and run it. Select the applications and languages you dont want/need and press Ok. It will delete all of the folders containing all of the unneeded applications and languages you selected. If you mess up, just re-extract the installer. Now you need to input your serial at the bottom of the app (where the XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX is), delete the "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX" and type\paste your serial in and hit replace. Your serial will replace the dummy serial. Once you have done that, you can select the default language for all of your nero apps (English is default). Once done, click the Create SFX button. It will start making the SFX, it may take a while to compress (depending on how many applications/Languages you removed). Once it has compressed, it is ready.
You now have your slimmed down and silent installer for Nero 9. You can add it to WPI or whatever you want.
Note: You need to input a real serial or the installation will fail. Note: Do not close NAR when you are creating the SFX. Note: There is a right click context menu if you need help, its there. This is still new so if you find any bugs or have an idea to make it better, please post here.
