Hey All,

This could be something really easy for some one. I'm deploying PDFcreator using the command line below:

"PDFCreator-1_2_0_setup.exe" /verysilent /Components=\"!toolbar\" /tasks=\"!desktop_icon"/f /norestart

and the good news is that it installs fine and i can run it up no problem. [:D]

Bad news? i should have a right click menu item that will allow me to convert documents, pictures etc to PDF (via PDF creator) [:@]

Any one know what i have to modify in the command to do this?

Cheers

Try adding one more task property "winexplorer". You can see that in the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Productcode.

Hope this may help.

Ended up using the "/Loadinf=" switch as below:

"PDFCreator-1_2_0_setup.exe" /verysilent /loadinf="Install.inf" /f /norestart

INF file had the following information in it:

[Setup]
Lang=english
Dir=C:\Program Files\PDFCreator
Group=PDFCreator
NoIcons=0
SetupType=custom
Components=program,ghostscript,comsamples,helpfiles,helpfiles\english,languages,languages\english
Tasks=winexplorer
Printername=PDFCreator
ServerInstallation=0
Win9xPrinterdriver=0
WinNtPrinterdriver=0
Win2k32bitPrinterdriver=0
Win2k64bitPrinterdriver=0
Toolbar=0

Hope that helps anyone else :)
