Project Goals: Make a 7zip (Super Compressed) Nero Installer with built-in Serial w/ no progress bar, and no reboot.

Approximate Time for Completion: 5 mins

Tools: 7zip 2.0 <-> [url=]Click Here To Download[/url]
Tools: Nero- <-> [url=]Click Here To Download[/url]


* Pre-Install 7zip 2.0 <--- pls do this first

1. Download Nero from [url=][/url]

2. Right Click Nero-


3. Select Winrar

4. Extract Nero- to \Nero- Folder

5. Go to the Nero- Folder
Highlight all the files, Right Click one of the files, Select Add to Archive


6. A 7zip dialog box will appear. Pls view figure below.
*** Pls kindly make sure that your filename for the archive is "Nero-"


7. You will see a new file called "Nero-"


8. Extract the contents of [url=]Nero-[/url] to the same folder as Nero-

9. Open & Edit the config.txt, enter your own serial number.


10. Then click on run_me.exe, It will automatically enter this command for you.

copy /b 7zs.sfx +config.txt +Nero- Nero660141.exe

11. You will end up with a File named "Nero660141.exe"

12. Your done! Good luck from Astalavista

Warning: If u try to install Nero and you come out with Demo it only means that the serial you entered is invalid or blacklisted. Make sure you have a valid
Warning: if your file size is not equal to 26.3MB and it is only 153kb that means the filename of your 7z is wrong. Make sure the filename is "Nero-"

To Install the keys for all the plugins for Nero you will need a regkey.
Below is a sample of my regkey. Again pls verify that you have a valid serial.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ahead\Nero - Burning Rom\General]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ahead\Nero - Burning Rom\Info]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ahead\Nero - Burning Rom\LightScribe]
"HelpFile"="C:\\Program Files\\Ahead\\nero\\Nero_LS_ENG.CHM"
"Minimum Version"=""
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ahead\Nero Fast CD-Burning Plug-in]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ahead\Plug-ins\Dolby Digital (5.1)]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ahead\Plug-ins\Dolby Digital (5.1)\Info]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ahead\Plug-ins\Nero Digital Universal]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ahead\Plug-ins\Nero Digital Universal\Info]

* The 7zs.sfx is from the latest release of 7zip 2.0. I edited it to remove the dialog box (base on keytotime's guide).
* Replaced the icon of 7zip with Nero icon
* Original Filesize of Nero 33MB after 7zip process filesize = 26.3MB
* Result: Smaller Footprint, kept original Nero logo, totally silent, no dialog, no cancel buttons. :thumbup
