May be you can post a spoiler of the programs you have already the silent switches for ;).

 

Anyway:

 

AdobeReader: /sPB /rs

AdobeAIR: -silent

ClassicShell: /qn (eventually /qn APPLICATIONFOLDER=C:\XYZ)

AIDA64: (/LOADINF=AIDA64.inf) /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /SP-

Cyberfox: /Silent /TASKS="desktopicon,Install_Start_Menu_Icons"

Firefox/Thunderbird: /S /NCRC

IrfanView: iviewxxx_setup.exe /silent /folder="c:\test folder\irfanview" /desktop=1 /thumbs=1 /group=1 /allusers=0 /assoc=1 /ini="%APPDATA%\irfanview"

IrfanView-Plugin: /silent

PaintDotNET: a) <installer.exe> /createMsi CHECKFORBETAS=0 CHECKFORUPDATES=0 DESKTOPSHORTCUT=1 JPGPNGBMPEDITOR=0 PDNUPDATING=0 TGAEDITOR=0 (generiert x64 & x86)

                      b ) <PaintDotNet_xXX.msi> /passive /norestart

RealPlayer: /s /v/qn

Realtek-HD-Audio: setup.exe /s /f2c:\mylog.log /z[-rpC:\RHDSetup.log] (extract the archive before!)

Shark007-Advanced: /S /v/qn (unzip the Advanced.exe before; if not ->>> undesired software)

TeamViewer: /MSI /S

 

Basically, if the installer allows the switches /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /SP- (see AIDA64) the user can try first to install the program on a running system with the switches

/SAVEINF="xyz.inf" /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /SP-, selecting the options he wants, and then build the silent-installer (or put the switches in WTK)

/LOADINF="xyz" /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /SP-

IrfanView: iviewxxx_setup.exe /silent /folder="c:\test folder\irfanview" /desktop=1 /thumbs=1 /group=1 /allusers=0 /assoc=1 /ini="%APPDATA%\irfanview"

Will that work with just the /silent? Basically without the /folder and /ini. I'd rather keep things simple as it's for beginners :)

 

P.S. I've already fixed the 'Malwarebytes' spelling bug :P

Yes, it does, but:

1) It doesn't set a desktop-link

2) The user has to set the options for every user

 

I think you can eliminate the switch /thumbs=1

 

BTW, I use this way, because I need to copy italian language files (english and german are default).

Ok everything that has been added and that has been mentioned is available to few in the first post. :)

 

I'm googling more!

 

 

 

......
SkypeSetup - /VERYSILENT /nogoogle /noie
......

What for effect does have on Skype the switch /noie?

 

TNX, Thiersee

 

 

 

; http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full
; ALLUSERS=1 - install for all the windows users
; /NOIE - No Internet Explorer plugin
; /NOGOOGLE - No Google toolbar
; /verysilent - No installation interface
; /NORESTART - No restart
; /SP- 
; /NOCANCEL cannot interrupt
;  /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES - avoid message boxes

Is the hyphen needed?

Are you sure that ImgBurn installs OpenCandy?

 

CDBurnerXP installs it for sure, if you don't take the minimal_version (without OpenCandy).

A little note to burnaware-free : it will be installing a toolbar. my workaround for this: extract it with universal-extractor, delete the temp folder inside the extracted setup, then edit install.iss and compile it with inno-setup.

You can do also this way (just tested):

 

1) install in a VM with the switch /SAVEINF=burnaware.inf and user-defined installation

2) untick the option for the Toolbar

3 finish the installation

 

To make it silent:

1) installer & burnaware.inf in a folder

2) in WTK thick the option "Copy Folder" and put "/LOADINF=burnaware.inf" as 1st switch then the other switches.

Thanks for the tip. I will test it now.

BTW:

you can try this tip with every installer accepting the switches /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /SP-.

 

There is only one problem: not every installer read out the inf.

normally I just create a bat file to run the exe with /? and it shows switches, however I found this: www.checkdevice.narod.ru/index/skf/0-36. to find the swiches.

Test 3 has been released with more applications added......

Thanks, but you forgot 1 line for PaintDot.NET

 

 

PaintDotNET EXE: /createMsi CHECKFORBETAS=0 CHECKFORUPDATES=0 DESKTOPSHORTCUT=1 JPGPNGBMPEDITOR=0 PDNUPDATING=0 TGAEDITOR=0
PaintDotNET MSI: /passive /norestart

The first line is only to extract the .MSI-file with NO INSTALL!
