Win7Codecs silent installation

9 posts in this topic

Hello,

Since while I'm trying to install Win7codecs silently withou success. There is a silent switch to install it as it. If so, a WeatherBug plugins adds will be installed too. Therefore I had to write a script for the silent install.

Here bellow the script as well as the Win7codecs.msi file.

1) My script works just fine when I launch it on a windows session.

2) During Unattended installation, my script frequently freeze when (IE) ProcessClose is called, sometimes at "Finish" and sometimes i get the here bellow message.

Anyway the problem start at line 43 AdlibRegister("_Adlib")

I'll appreciate any help

Regards

Here is what I have done, mon ami! Using Orca MSI Editor, I removed the weatherbug stuff from the msi file. You may now run it silently with the standard msi switches. Assuming Internet Explorer is your default browser, this script should work for you and disable the web page popping up at the end of the installation.

  • I had to use _ShellExecuteEx since this is an msi install and I wanted to continue the script while the installation is going on.
$Path = 'Path to your msi file'
$Switches = '/qn /norestart'
$Install = _ShellExecuteEx($Path, $Switches)
ToolTip(' ', @DesktopWidth /2.5, @DesktopHeight / 2.5, 'Installing Win7Codecs Package', 1)
While ProcessExists($Install)
    Do
        ProcessClose('iexplore.exe')
    Until Not ProcessExists('iexplore.exe')
    Sleep(10)
WEnd
If ProcessWait('iexplore.exe', 5) Then  ;waits another 5 seconds after the install for any iexplore Processes
    ProcessClose('iexplore.exe')
EndIf

; =================================================================================================
; Func _ShellExecuteEx($sCmd, $sParams = "", $sFolder = "", $sVerb = "", $iState = @SW_SHOWNORMAL,$bCloseProcessHandle=True)
;
; Parameters are the same as ShellExecute(), except for the addition of:
;
; $bCloseProcessHandle = If True (recommended unless planning on using Process Handles),
;           then the Process Handle (if received) is closed
;       If False, the Process Handle (if received) is returned - this can be used to do additional work with Processes
;       Usage is mostly recommended for the _ShellExecuteExWait() function and/or getting exit code.
;
; Return is different from ShellExecute() in the following way:
;   Success: @error = 0, and either the process ID (if $bCloseProcessHandle is True, and process ID received) is returned,
;     or a 2-element array (if $bCloseProcessHandle is False):
;       $array[0]=Process ID if new process started (and process handle+ID received),
;       $array[1]=Process Handle if new process started (and process handle received)
;   Failure: @error set and 0 is returned
;       @error = 1 = parameters error
;       @error = 2 = call failed (probably due to parameter error. can use _WinAPI_GetLastError())
;
; NOTE: Recommended to run on Windows 2000 or higher because:
;   According to Microsoft at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb762154.aspx,
;   Windows 95/98/Me: ShellExecuteEx is supported by the Microsoft Layer for Unicode (MSLU).
;   To use this, you must add certain files to your application,
;       as outlined in Microsoft Layer for Unicode on Windows Me/98/95 Systems.
;   So it appears it will break on those machines without MSLU(?)

    ;   Some Shell extensions require the COM single-threaded apartment (STA) type. In that case, COM should be initialized as shown here.
    ;   There are certainly instances where ShellExecuteEx does not use one of these types of Shell extension and those instances would not
    ;   require COM to be initialized at all. Nonetheless, it is good practice to always initalize COM before using this function."

Many TNX mon ami :x

Oooopss I forgot Orca, I'm using it too Posted Image

1) What tables, action.... did you deleted from the original Win7codecs_273.msi?

2) I tested Win7codecs_273_custom.msi /qb ... works like a charm

3) I tested yr appropriate script to install it... I got the here above message "There was problem sending..."

4) I prpared a 7zsd.sfx file (compress (Ultra) Win7codecs_273_custom.msi with 7zip, write the file config.txt...) tested working like a charm (complete files link here bellow)

5) I have an idea why don't use Orca to delete

Tables: CustomAction

Action: SetupInfo Target: explorer.exe http://shark007.net/win7codecs.html

Regards

Win7codecs_273_custom_2.zip

Hi Varian,

I'm using Orca 5.0.6764.0.

I opened yr Win7codecs_273_custom.msi find Tables: CustomAction and droprd Action: SetupInfo Target: explorer.exe http://shark007.net/win7codecs.html, then I saved as Win7codecs_273_custom_TEST.msi the file I got is only 6,7 MB instead of 24,8 MB.

Got a same result with my original Win7codecs_273.msi

I did something wrong?

Regards

I don't have that late a version of Orca...I am using v3.1.4. But I get the same thing if I save to a new file, even without making any changes. If I save the file directly, the size remains the same. Please test with an unaltered version from the website. I'm doing the same on my end, and I'll report my findings

That what I did , When I wrote here above "Got a same result with my original Win7codecs_273.msi" it means: I've tested an unaltered version from the website.

Right now I did the same:

1) Opened an unaltered version, drpped a row and save... Same size 24 815KB

2) Opened an unaltered version, drpped a row and save as... size 6717 KB

3) Dis same tests with your file, got same results for save and save as.

BTW, did you test my Win7codecs_273_custom_2.zip ?

Hi Varian,

good news here.

I tested installing the "save as" win7codecs (6717 KB) I got the next error message "error 2356. Could not locate cabinet in stream: Data1.cab"

Then I opened yr win7codecs (with WeatherBug dropped row). Idroped Action: SetupInfo Target: explorer.exe http://shark007.net/win7codecs.html, and saved it (24815 KB)... Tested No more WeatherBug, IE neither :x

May you let me know what row exactly you dropped to get WeatherBug disabled?

Regards

Got those same results as well, coucou. As far as the removes go, the quick and dirty is to search for "weather" and remove those items, and everything starting with "WB"
