I'm trying to create an install for Nero 8 for our users. I've used macrovision Adminstudio (8.5). I've run tuner to create an MST with all the features removed or added as appropriate. I've also set the various bits needed for a silent install, IE:[/align] [/align]AGREETOLICENSE = Yes[/align]COMPANYNAME=MyCompany
EULA_AGREEMENT=1[/align]NERO_SCOUT=FALSE[/align]SERIALNUM=1234-5678-90AB-CDEF-GHIJ-KLMN-OPQR[/align] [/align]When I run it using the command line:[/align] [/align]SetupX.exe /qb+ /NORESTART TRANSFORMS="mymst.mst"[/align] [/align]it all installs fine, however, when I click Start/Programs/Nero8, the only Icon is one that says "Complete your Nero installation". When you click that your get a window about finishing the install, click next and then you have to agree to the EULA again, and then next you get a screen showing Company name, Username and asks for the serial number again. Only after you have gone through this do you then get the proper shortcuts in the start menu. Anyone know of a way to by-pass this as I don't want my users having to do this, especially as it gives then the serial number which we don't want them to have.[/align] [/align]Thanks[/align]

Have you logged the install to make sure the transform gets applied?

I haven't logged it, but I know the transform is being applied as the Company name and selected features are installed.

...and what about if you have a typo in one of the other properties, e.g. the serial number? Maybe the transform *is* being applied but with properties whose names or values are incorrect...

Thought of that, copied & pasted the serial number from the transform to the application and it accepted it.

You can change the install level in your MST to 999 for the features you want to install http://itninja.com/link/microsoft-download-center1 or specify them on the command line..

Hello all. I'm having a little problem getting my custom MSI to work using Zen(console one) to build it. All I basically want is Neroburnrights and Burning Rom installed and thats it. School District so we are tight on what we install. The MSI launches fine but when it looks like it attempts to register the Dll's thats where it bombs out. Granted I am rather new to this so I am sure I am doing something wrong. Just wondering if anyone had success in doing this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Jesse, reading between the lines, it sounds like you edited the original vendor-supplied MSI. This is a mistake.

Get yourself a proper authoring tool (there are freeware tools around...) or, as a last resort, download the Windows Installer SDK in order to obtain Orca and create a transform for the MSI as supplied by Ahead (you have a backup of the original, right?). Set up the transform to install ONLY the features you want to install, then specify the transform in your installing command line:

. MSIExec /i "[path_to_and_name_of_nero.msi]" TRANSFORMS="[path_to_and_name_of_MST]

Note that the TRANSFORMS property must be in upper-case.

Lastly, there is - as ever - much information in AppDeploy's 'Package KB', http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/browse.asp?cat=alpha&str=n

Thanks VB....We have Admin studio I can use if I can find the install disk. Like I said I am new to build MSI's and stuff so there is alot I am missing I am sure. I'll mess with Admin Studio I guess to see if I can figure it out. I'm sure I will be asking more questions.

Ask away. Just remember that you'll get a better response if you can a) outline your EXACT query and document EXACTLY what error(s) you may have got and b) demonstrate that you have researched the problem and tried solution X or Y beforehand.

Is there a way to get Nero to install without making any file associations but still create the start menu entries?

I can either have it create no shortcuts and no file associations or have it create the shortcuts but associate all the files.

I created the following property (as somebody mentioned in the application notes) to remove file associations:

NO_FILEASSOC - NeroPhotoSnapED1EAF52, NeroShowTimeD773A6E2, NeroCoverDesigner7CE8D626 (Stops associations of jpg,gif,wmf,avi etc with nero applications)

It worked well for me. The values (delimited by commas) are all feature names in the package.

For the initial issue on this forum I encountered the 'Complete your installation' when I hadn't installed the prerequisites of VCRedistSetup and Neroxml (I'd decoupled the MSI from the setupx.exe). Hence all of the self reg stuff at the end of the installation didn't complete.
I also found that the NERO_SCOUT property needed to be specified in the MSIEXEC command line as opposed to being specified in the property table. If I recall, this property was evaluated by the package before the package evaluated the property table, and hence only worked via the command line.

Now I am trying to do an uninstall script but it automatically reboots afterwards. I use msiexec.exe /X {3C5F1B30-B10B-4579-86DD-D00F662E1033} /qb- to uninstall and have tried /norestart REBOOT=REALLYSUPRESS and RebootYesNo=No. They all fail to stop the computer from rebooting.

I managed to figure it out, thought I'd post it just in case anyone else was wondering.

This is what my script looks like:
msiexec /X Data\Nero.msi /qb- /norestart DONOTRUNSETUPX="1" STARTPARAM="CallFromExe"
msiexec /X {3921A67A-5AB1-4E48-9444-C71814CF3027} /qb-
msiexec /X {56C049BE-79E9-4502-BEA7-9754A3E60F9B} /qb-

The last 2 lines uninstalls some components that were installed with nero that don't get uninstalled with the main program.

I am having the exact same problem.... I did a MST with all the changes I required. We use ConsoleOne / ZenWorks to push packages. With a power user policy, the install goes fine, everything works. But as a lockdown user the install pops up a bunch of error messages when registering the DLLs. I already tried giving the user rights to Program Files\Nero and Common Files\Nero and HKLM\Software\Nero in a custom action right before NeroAg_RegisterComEx, doesn't work still.

How could I suppress thoses messages and make the registering process work?

OK I managed to find something that helped me fix part of the problem. In my .MST, for the NeroAG_RegisterComEx custom action, I changed the sequence to "Before Install Finalize" and the In-Script Execution to "Deferred Execution in System Context". This has the effect of running the dll registration as the system user which has all the rights to do so. However I still have an error with the "NegoAG_ExecPostInstallTaks", it gives me an error message in lockdown: "shellmanager database corrupt or missing", whereas an admin user will not get this error message for the exact same install. The above trick did not work for this custom action... so I'll keep trying stuff.

As ever, ProcMon will show EXACTLY why you are seeing the error, which is undoubtedly due to file and/or registry access permissioning.

Alright So I have been trying to set up a package with Nero 8 and do a silent install on machines using
setup.exe /quiet /qn
However when it finishes the "complete your Nero Installation" shows up on the desktop and if you run that you have to put in the serial and accept the eula, which is in the config file. Note I removed it in this because I didn't want to give you all free liscenses sorry [8|]
The configuration file is located in the subdirectory of data/redist/config/config.txt
Any Ideas without making a mst, I don't have the software to do that and if the config file exists anyways through nero I would like to go that way anyways it's cleaner. It seems to install the options I want and no others as well fine so I don't know what's going on there how it's not seeing the key

Hi,
I posted the other message, with other error and I found the corrupt archive and I found the solution for the error, replacing the old archives to new archives.
I work with repackage and at moment I repacking a Nero 8.3.6.0, I use Virtual Machine for test the scripts.
I'm doing a MST of Nero.msi and I set the properties for install by MST MSI, but on hour that I go uninstall show message error "This action is only valid for products that are currently installed." but the archives and programs are running right, I open, restart, burn CD, all the options of application are fuction all right because the properties that I selected is apply in MST.
I have the Standard for guide this scripts and after ready the application must install and uninstall whithout any errors and I can use only Wise Package Studio for do this.
Please help me guys because I need send the project to client while before, I out of date send.
I live in Brazil and I'm studing english and It's not god, but I belive with you can understand me.
If help, I post the all lines of properties of MST.
I thought that MST that I created is not good then I edited the MST with remain in nero's folder and show the same as error.
On the log shows
MSI (s) (8C:EC) [08:33:06:281]: Product: Nero 8 Trial -- Installation failed.
This action is only valid for products that are currently installed.

*Bump* Nero 8.3.13.0[:@]
Alright so nobody has posted on this for ages, I stopped working on the mst due to timing, So When I do install applying the mst, I am still getting Complete your Install when it's done, Serial is correct.

Install String
SetupX.exe NERO_SCOUT="FALSE" /qb! /NORESTART TRANSFORMS="C:\Program Files\******\NERO83\Nero83.mst"
SetupX.exe NERO_SCOUT="FALSE" /NORESTART TRANSFORMS="C:\Program Files\******\NERO83\Nero83.mst" /qb-!
as well as
SetupX.exe NERO_SCOUT="FALSE" /qb! /NORESTART TRANSFORMS="C:\Program Files\******\NERO83\data\Nero83.mst"
SetupX.exe NERO_SCOUT="FALSE" /NORESTART TRANSFORMS="C:\Program Files\******\NERO83\data\Nero83.mst" /qb-!

-MST Changes-
Under Features to remove things from installing I have level 0 whereas the others by default have level 100

Under Properties I have the following:

AGREETO LICENSE Yes
EULA_AGREEMENT 1
Reboot NO
SerialNUM_Correct YES
SERIALNUM *aww you know i want to give it to you but*
INCLANGUAGES ENG (I've done this with Null and ENG)

I originally made the changes in Altiris Wise Package Studio but I have done also in Orca I can't get it Complete your Nero Installation, Where it asks for User Name and Serial, I noticed with Wise that it threw in things like WiseInitLangDefault English1033 etc and that's why i tried a clean slate in orca. Any Ideas.
I have found fourms on ways to install it completely differant w/o a mst but I prefer mst since others have done so, Is it possible someone takes their serial out of their mst with accompanying msi file?
Junoir I don't know if you ever got a reply but if you want to reword it in portuguese I may be able to help you, As I didn't understand your post

Have you read the 'Package KB' on Nero 8? http://itninja.com/link/microsoft-download-center1

Several posts mention a second property 'SERIALNUM_USERVAL' and, rather than 'EULA_AGREEMENT', they have 'EULA_ACCEPTED'.

Yes I have read it thanks for pointing it out though.
I have searched the entire msi tables and cannot find any SERIALNUM_USERVAL or 'EULA_ACCEPTED' anywhere. I have looked everywhere i can think of and I even opened up good ol Orca and used the search function in there to search the tables.
I have found somewhat of a workaround but it still gets screwey with my mst, I can add the regkey under HKLM\Software\Nero\Installation\Familie\Nero 8\Info, Serial8_1232663262 *MYKEY* and EULAAccepted=1
and it installs nero with what features I turned off in the mst file however it has two options one to continue nero installation and then has nero startsmart etc all the settings that i said to install. I have thought to recreate the mst just disabling features i don't want and not editings the serial or eula but have not done so yet. Looking at the log It hows Serial Num Correct=0 so that may be why however eula agreement is 1 under log. So not sure why the Serial is not being accepted as I do have in the mst clearly have tried Serial Num Correct changed from No to Yes and from No to 1. Maybe I should start trying to change it to the German version of Yes however I only know a couple German words and Yes is not one of them I do however know Nine is no :)

Hi...

hoping somebody could give me a tad help here...

problem: Nero opens after installation with "Please ask your system administrator to install 'Nero BurnRights', Burning Permission can be granted to some or all users with this tool. Nero Buiring rights... bla bla bla"

a note... this is Nero 8.1.1.0 (to be exact)... from doing a few small searches... it said that "nero burnrights" is built into or not needed for 8... only 5 and 6...
another note... I did not create the package... i'm just fixing here...

it's a locked down environment...

i've tried the solution posted saying to give rights to certain reg keys, including the ""allocatecdroms" (REG_SZ) registry entry to value 1 under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon""

same error...

I made the user a local admin, worked perfect...
change back... and back to being a pain...

any suggestions...

Here, as most forums, it's considered bad form to resurrect old threads, especially ones this old.

After you assigned write access permissions to the registry key, did you restart the workstation? If not, do so and re-try. IIRC, the values therein are read at boot-time.

Nero is installed by MSIs so re-packaging is a definite no-no, unless you want to enter a whole different world of pain.

You can tie down what Nero is actually doing by - as ever - using ProcMon as it starts. I'm pretty sure you'll find that it'seither the absence of or permissions on the registry values mentioned in the Package KB.
