Addon and Installers + SFX

Recommended Posts

I've been poking around the Switchless Installers forum over at RyamVM and was wondering if their addons and switchless installer releases can be used with the All in One intergrator in W7T.

ie: I've noticed that all their switchless installer releases are .7z archives. Can I just grab one, covert it to SFX and then just plug it in where applicable in W7T?

Are their releases cross compatible with W7T?

Heres an example I found over at RyanVM Switchess Installer forum

If not, can someone please point me to a forum/post on WinCert that can assist me in making my own. I've looked around but cant seem to get a hit on my search query.

Much appreciated.

uncompress the .7z and you will find a silent installer you can add with W7T on the add silents tab

Thanks for responding. But is it really as easy as that? That said, I'll ask again.

Are their releases cross compatible with W7T?

For example when looking inside the 7z SFX MP3QualityModifier240.exe using winRAR I see this code and SFX modules

;The comment below contains SFX script commands
Path=%programfiles%\MP3 Quality Modifier
Shortcut=P, MP3QualityModifier.exe, "MP3 Quality Modifier", , "MP3 Quality Modifier",

Do I need to add anyhing further to these .7z SFX archives, ie: config.ini files... ?

No. All you need is the .exe file from inside the archive

As reaper said, just get than exe and add it to the silent installs list, there's no need to add a 'switch/syntax'.

This is of course assuming the exe is already set up to be silent as kirk implied.

Thank you for your replies. I've been poking around and looking inside the archives along with some reading and alah! It makes perfect sense. I think I might even even try making a few addons and silent installers myself. Once again thanks all.

      Can anyone tell me if they're having problems viewing the Official RMV Integrator Manual from the official website? Because when I click on the tabs to read the different sections, they all appear empty to me.

      It's weird, because I could read it fine a few weeks ago. And I tried viewing it through both Firefox and Opera, both updated to the latest versions. I also have Java and Flash plugins updated to the latest versions, so I don't see how it could be anything on my end...

      First of all, let me say that I realy like working with WinToolkit and appreciate all the hard work that LegoLash20 has put in this this awsome program....Not to mention the pro-active members in the forum.
      I am pretty much confortable with my knowledge with most aspects of W7T. However, I am totally baffled on the subject of Update Intergration. I have taken a look at the update catalog, but I have not idea how to sort out what updates I need. The only thing I've been able to decern is that they are all Post windows 7 SP1 updates. I have no clue which ones superceed others or which ones are critical, important, etc.
      I have spend a number of hours today going thru the forums here, and over at RyanVM's to find some decent documentation that would help me to undertand the complex mechanics of windows updates in relation to W7T. The only thing that came close to reasonable is a tutorial that i found here...
      This tutorial was working out for me till i reached the first step -- downloading SoLorS updates which were all nicely rolled up and ready to go, at least so it seemed. The links are now dead and the tutorial hasn't been updated with anything new, Proceeding to the next available source for getting the update pack only confused me even more. ... KUC, etc...
      I would realy like to intergrate Win7 hotfixes into my media without having to resort to using multiple tools. Can anyone with a solid foundation in the mechanics of W7 updates and W7T point me to a tut or doc that can explain how to sort out and identify the updates and tell me the basics of do's and dont's with respect to intergrating 'this update' with 'that update' and and so on. Much appreciated and thanks in advance.
