I am trying to package QuickTime 7 for Windows 7 (both x86 & x64). I have the install part working but what is Not working is trying to turn off the Auto-Update.

I found on appdeploy the following command line for QuickTime

QuickTime.msi /qn ALLUSERS=1 DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS=0 SCHEDULE_ASUW=0 REBOOT=R

This will install QT and it works. There is No desktop icon either. But.....when I open up QT and navigate to: Edit\Preferences\Quick Time Preferences then the Update Tab I still have a check in my "check for updates automatically"

Second Problem.

Once QT installs I then start it up and I am prompted with this dialog.

some of the file types associated with QuickTime applications are currently associated with other applications. Should I restore these file type associates to QuickTime?

How do I silence that so it is never seen by anyone?

Thanks

There is a configuration file for QuickTime named QuickTime.qtp which is stored in the userprofile appdata directory.
Only thing you need to do is open up QuickTime, change all the settings and then get the quicktime.qtp file which you can use for you package now.

Teitan: After installing QuickTime there is no QuickTime.qtp file on my XP system. I even searched for *.qtp and it finds nothing. and I made sure I am showing "all system and hidden files"

Is it the QTPlayerSession.xml that you mean?

another thing I'd like to know is the proper syntax to run this command. Everything I've tried so far fails. It pops up the msiexec.exe window.

QuickTimeInstaller.exe /s /v"/qn DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS=0 SCHEDULE_ASUW=0 ASUWISINSTALLED=0"

Is that possible with this .EXE?

Thanks.

Why not create MSTs for the 2 MSIs?

First, do your configuration steps in Quicktime. Aftwards get the config file from
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\QuickTime\QuickTime.qtp

For your deployment i would suggest to catch AppleApplicationSupport.msi and QuickTime.msi from your %temp% folder
when the QuickTime setup is launched. Doing it this way prevents the setup.exe from installing other Apple trash software
on your users machines. Make sure to install AppleApplicationSupport before QuickTime otherwise you will get some sort of error.

Use this command lines:
msiexec /i "<path>\AppleApplicationSupport" /qn /l*vx <logfilepath>
msiexec /i "<path>\QuickTime.msi" DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS=0 SCHEDULE_ASUW=0 ASUWISINSTALLED=0" /qn /l*vx <logfilepath>

When you encounter any errors...post the log files here.

jmaclaurin: I can explode out the .MSI files and then run them so I don't need an .MST. I should be able to specify the PROPERTIES on the command line. But I will try the .MST just to see if that makes a difference.

Teitan: I installed QuickTime 7. I then went into the PREFS. I made some changes and then clicked APPLY. I then closed QuickTime. There is NO *.qtp file on my system. I searched the entire harddrive for *.qtp and there is no files found. And I don't see anything settings being set

The difference with the MST approach is you can also remove the unwanted such as the updater (qttask.exe) from running and the run reg key. You can also remove any other feature you don't want which is why I would suggest you look at the link I provided above. The reasons noted for why the items were removed or managed are worth looking at anyways. There are also notes as to how to install the 2 configuration files so that the end user will not be prompted to configure which is also something that can't be done without some sort of packaging.

mhsl808, thats strange. I would suggest to use the process monitor to see if there is a file written if you klick "apply" in the quicktime configuration dialog.

Ok, I created a QuickTime.MST file and set the properties and registry up. I then ran the following on a windows 7 machine

appleapplicationsupport.msi /qb+
QuickTime.msi TRANSFORMS=QuickTime.MST /qb+

Both install. I then run QuickTime and it says "You have to first install appleapplicationsupport.msi" ?!?! WTF!! And when I reintall it then it blows out the .MST settings like "do not check for updates"

So I missed something but I'm not sure what......

And another thing that is happening. In my QuickTime.MST file I did a "response transform" so it captures what you do while it installs. I unchecked "auto check for updates". I confirmed that this is set to 0 in the Properties yet it is Still set to Yes. So I ran the .MST with the following command line switches DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS=0 SCHEDULE_ASUW=0 ASUWISINSTALLED=0 and when I look at the PREFS of QuickTime it is still set to "YES, Auto check for updates" So what gives? Do any of these command lines even work?

Do any of these command lines even work?No, of course not. Posters here like nothing more than leading people down the garden path, or several garden paths, if we can manage it.

Look harder for the .QTP file. It *does* get created.

Use process monitor...its really not that difficult. Your package could have been done since hours.

Use Ashampoo Uninstaller to capture the settings and changes. You can download it and use the free trial version. So First, install the Ashampoo, but don't open it yet. Then install the Quick Time, but don't launch it yet. Lauch Ashampoo, click on "Actions" tab, and then "Save current configuration". Once completed, launch Quick Time, make the changes you need in there, then go back to Ashampoo, and under "Actions" tab click "Create compare log". This log will tell you in detail what changes you made and where. Have fun...
