Commandline Installation for Nero 9.X.X.X

1. Download the newest version of Nero 9.x from www.nero.com

2. Start the downloaded installer (something like Nero-9.x.x.x_update.exe)

-> the installer first extracts the installing component before the actual install starts.

3. Open a dos box
4. Type cd %temp%
5. Type explorer .

-> now you shoud see a folder with the name neroXXXXXX

-> this is the extracted installation source.

6. Copy the installation source

Inside the installation source there are a bunch of folders called unit_app_xx where xx is the application ID.

There are also folders called unit_hlp_xx; these are the respective help files for the applications.

Here is a list of the application ID (=Components):
1 InCD
3 NeroBackItUp
4 NeroBurningROM
5 NeroCoverDesigner
6 NeroExpress
8 NeroImageDrive
9 NeroMediaHome
10 NeroPhotoSnap
12 NeroRecode
13 NeroShowTime
14 NeroSoundTrax
15 NeroStartSmart
16 NeroVision
17 NeroWaveEditor
19 NeroDriveSpeed
20 NeroInfoTool
21 NeroRescueAgent
22 NeroBurnRights
30 Nero ProductInstaller (Mandatory)
49 NeroMoveIt
50 NeroDiscCopy_Gadget
53 SecureDiscViewer
57 NeroDiscSpeed
61 NeroLicense (Mandatory)
62 AuthoringTemplates_StarterKit
63 NeroControlCenter (Mandatory)
64 MovieTemplates_StarterKit
65 MovieTemplates_Pack1
66 AuthoringTemplates_Pack1
67 AuthoringTemplates_Pack2
68 AuthoringTemplates_Pack3
69 DolbyFiles
71 Nero Live
74 LiveGadget
75 AskToolbar

Although not mandatory, don't forget to install the AuthoringTemplates (62,66,67,68).
Without the lightscribe folder I received an error when opening NeroCoverDesigner - so also include lightscribe.

7. Simply delete the folders of the applications that you don't want to have installed (AskToolbar and so on).

8. Don't forget the help files!

My installation comes in German, English, French, Italian and Spanish for the following components:
-NeroBurningROM
-NeroExpress
-NeroCoverDesigner
-NeroWaveEditor
-NeroDiscSpeed

My fileshare looks therefore:
unit_app_4
unit_app_5
unit_app_6
unit_app_17
unit_app_30
unit_app_57
unit_app_61
unit_app_62
unit_app_63
unit_app_66
unit_app_67
unit_app_68
unit_hlp_4
unit_hlp_5
unit_hlp_6
unit_hlp_17
unit_hlp_57
unit_hlp_63
unit_tpi_lighscribe_1.14.17.1
unit_tpi_msxml-4
unit_tpi_vcredist-x86-2005SP1

9. setupx.exe /i /q SERIALNUMBER="XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX" EULAACCEPTED="1" DESKTOP_SHORTCUT="0" INCLANGUAGES="ENG, DEU, FRA, ITA, ESP" SX SOURCEPATH="PATH to Folder/Share where setupx lies" CONFIGPATH="Path to Folder/Share where setupx lies"

/qb shows a progressbar

This worked successfully for me with Nero 9.2.6.0

Commandline Uninstallation for Nero 9.X.X.X

%CommonProgramFiles%\Nero\Nero Productinstaller 4\setupx.exe REMOVESERIALNUMBER="XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX" SX SOURCEPATH="%CommonProgramFiles%\Nero\Nero ProductInstaller 4" CONFIGPATH="%CommonProgramFiles%\Nero\Nero ProductInstaller 4" /q

When the SX Option incl. SOURCEPATH and CONFIGPATH is given, setupx.exe continues directly and lasts until the setup is finished.

Otherwise setupx.exe copies itself and reexecutes its copy which performs the installation process. Errorcode is then 4 and you have to manually check when the setup is finished.

Note

Using registry keys mentioned above will work fine in case of English MUI, but if you are packaging for multiple builds than running Neroburnright.exe with /all switch will be a better options. Above registies are known to create problem in French MUI

None of the above worked for me so I did a search and came across this manual.

I copied the examples but there are more options in that manual.

Examples

Minimal silent installation with progress bar
Setupx.exe /i /qb SERIALNUMBER="AAAA-BBBB-CCCC-DDDD-EEEE-FFFF-GGGG-HHHH" EULAACCEPTED="1" INSTAPP="ALL"

Minimal silent installation without progress bar
Setupx.exe /i /q SERIALNUMBER="AAAA-BBBB-CCCC-DDDD-EEEE-FFFF-GGGG-HHHH" EULAACCEPTED="1" INSTAPP="ALL"

Remove Single Unit
Setupx.exe REMOVEAPP=”unit_app_12”

Customized silent installation
SetupX.exe /i /qb SERIALNUMBER="AAAA-BBBB-CCCC-DDDD-EEEE-FFFF-GGGG-HHHH" EULAACCEPTED="1" INCLANGUAGES="DEU" DESKTOP_SHORTCUT="0" AUTOPLAY="0"
REBOOT="ReallySuppress" INSTAPP="unit_app_6, unit_app_15, unit_app_13,unit_app_63, unit_app_61"

Just wanted to drop a quick find:

If you install the nero.mmstrial.msi with [languagecode].mst and you get the "This program requires the file advrcntr6.dll, which was not found on this system." error, the MSI is probably looking for it in
[tempfolder]somegeneratedfoldername_alswaysdifferent
([tempfolder]D39B4B65_3692_4292_833F_2C81D15845EB__11.0.1.11__1436 in my case).

Using the Install Tailor of WISE I saw two properties get set as:
Set Property     SUPPORTDIR     [tempfolder]D39B4B65_3692_4292_833F_2C81D15845EB__11.0.1.11__1436
Set Property     NERO.ADVRCNTR_PATH     [TempFolder]D39B4B65_3692_4292_833F_2C81D15845EB__11.0.1.11__264\AdvrCntr6.dll

which are not available on a fresh machine of course.

I changed these values to:
[CommonFilesFolder]Nero\AdvrCntr6
[CommonFilesFolder]Nero\AdvrCntr6\AdvrCntr6.dll

Also I copied the contents from that folder in %temp% to a n/w share (some EULA.rtf, CustomActions file and two .dll files)

I then took a clean machine, copied the contents and put it in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Nero\AdvrCntr6
installed all the pre-reqs needed (not all in my case!) and rolled out the msi/mst

All you need to do is have your own msi/mst put the above files (or just the AdvrCntr6.dll, need to try this) in the  above location (or have a script do it together with the pre-reqs you need)
I guess I can set these properties with Orca too now I know what is causing the error.

WIN!

and

It works fine.
