If you want to make a addon out of your silent switch for nLite its pretty easy:

- Create a new folder named svcpack and place your silent installer you made with this tuto into it

- Create a new text file, rename it Entries_whatever.ini (where whatever is you can put what you like example Entries_Firefox.ini)

- Copy & Paste the following into your Entries_*.ini and fill in the details

[general]
builddate=2009/10/05
description=Description of the program goes here.
language=English
title=Program Name
version=1.0.1
website=http://www.example.com

[EditFile]
SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram

[AddProgram]
NameOfInstaller.exe

- Now you can compress the Entreis_*.ini and the svcpack folder together into a addon that nLite will be able to read and integrate

Tip: you can download a already pachaged nlite addon so you can see how its done http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?/forum/105-svcpack-addons/

If you want to add reg entries you can compress a .reg file along with your regular installer (in the 7zip sfx) and use something like this in your config.txt (assuming your reg file is named NameOfReg.Reg)

;!@Install@!UTF-8!
RunProgram="Installer.exe /X"
RunProgram="regedit /s NameOfReg.Reg"
GUIMode="2"
;!@InstallEnd@!

After the sfx extracts and installs your program silently it will apply the .reg file afther the program finishes installing (read the .chm included in ssmaker for many more examples like this)

RunOnceEx config.txt example:

;!@Install@!UTF-8!
RunProgram="WindowsDefender.msi /qn TRANSFORMS=NoLaunch.mst /norestart"
AutoInstall="hidcon:reg add HKLM\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\RunOnceEx\\windefender /v Install /d %%S\\WindowsDefender.exe /f"
GUIMode="2"
;!@InstallEnd@!

Rick in the new sfx there is a new variable called %%M it's for the Sfx name

so you can make it

;!@Install@!UTF-8!
RunProgram="WindowsDefender.msi /qn TRANSFORMS=NoLaunch.mst /norestart"
AutoInstall="hidcon:reg add HKLM\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\RunOnceEx\\windefender /v Install /d %%S\\%%M /f"
GUIMode="2"
;!@InstallEnd@!

that since 1.3 Beta (Build 1095)
