Windows 7: Silent Installers

Silent Installers

I downlaoded RT 7 Lite (windows 7 equivalent to vLite) and there is an option to intergrate programs into the installation. It says it needs to be silent installers though.

Can i turn any program installer to a silent installer, or take my installed programs, and make a silent installer out of them? Or where can I downlaod them?

I ran into a few guides for how to go about creating the response file needed for each program you would try this out with. Note that silent installs mean nothing as far as progress and messages are seen during the full install of the intended program.

One guide can be looked over at Exploring - Direct I/O:

Another one is seen at Silent Install

There are also "unintended silent installs" that lack any user intervention. Unattended, A Windows deployment system: Unattended/Silent Installation Switches for Windows Apps is one reference for this.

and each depends on the type of program or software install to be seen such as those for Blackberry's as one example.

Most indicate a command line entry for seeing this done. The specific entries vary between different programs making this a bit involved but should still see results if performed correctly. You just to need to know the specifics for each program. I have to caution about trying too much at once however where it gets too complicated.

Installers not starting from outside OS drive
I have some installers that worked fine in XP but don't install when run from outside the OS partition. All 4 I tried should be NSIS-type installers(but it does not apply to all NSIS installers, the Imgburn one runs fine outside OS partition): mkx.y.9.exe - Haali Media Splitter...
Installers. Why?
This thread is just a pondering, not a real technical question. That's why I've put it here. Sorry if it's in the wrong place! New poster here. :D Why use installers? A recent experience has made me question the purpose of installers in general. Why not just have big Zips that you unzip into...
