Note
Winzip 10 is most easily packaged by using Wise Package Studio (or similar) and running a setup capture on the installation. After the installation is done, enter either your single user registry key or run the multi user wzmul registration file, then reboot. End the capture and everything works great. Use custom install to leave out quick pick tray icon, desktop icon, etc. Hope this helps...

I used Admin Studio to capture WinZip 10.

First, my prereqs were these:
1. Our Setup.exe came prelicensed, so I didn't have to do the Multi User license thing.
2. We wanted a minimally invasive install, so no desktop icons, no extra start menu icons, no quick pick, no tips, etc.
3. I'm using a Virtual Machine with an undo disk (VMWare - Repeatable Resume; MS - Undo Disk)

Steps:
1. Install Winzip manually to the VM XP machine
2. Copy the contents of %programfiles%\WinZip to my network packages location
3. Restart the VM to put the XP build back to a clean build
4. Start AdminStudio Repackager and start a new capture using the scan system option instead of the watch process option (default)
5. Trick Repackager by using CMD.exe as the app to install (because I need to copy files by hand later)
6. Using the new CMD Prompt, Make a WinZip folder in C:\Program Files
7. Copy all the WinZip files from Step 2 back to the install location
8. Run the newly copied WinZip32.exe with all the switches that you require including the AutoInstall (Example WinZip32.exe /nodesktop /autoinstall)
9. Close CMD.exe and finish the capture
10. Edit MSI to remove any non Nico Mak and Winzip registry entries. Keep the Winzip HKCU entries in the package or else Winzip will reinstall itself and ignore all the switches you used above.

That's it!

First install WinZip. Get the files from Program Files\Winzip package all files into a self extractor (I used inno setup size reduced to 2.5mb) and configure it to extract to Program Files using the "%programfiles%" in the sfx properties. The command to run after extraction is:

%programfiles%\Winzip\winzip32.exe /noqp /notip /autoinstall

This works for me.

Winzip has native MSIs for version 10 (and 11). These are buried but I've added a direct download link and a link to this entry on customising these MSIs.

Command Line
If done it this way:

start /wait winzip32.exe /noqp /notip /autoinstall
del "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\WinZip.lnk"
del "c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\WinZip.lnk"

This disables :
Tip of the day (/notip)
Tray icon (/noqp)

and it deletes the shortcuts.

Script

The version 17 cames in an executable that is self extracting and contains an exe file and two MSI: one for the 32bit version and another for the 64bit version.

The license file can be provided in the MSI (available on request) or given to the customer on a separate file with extension .WZMUL

To distribute the right one Windows Vista or 7 32 and 64 bit you can use the following script:

 

@echo off if %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% == x86 (
goto :x86
) else (
goto :x64
)
:x86
msiexec /i WinZipMSI-32.msi /qn
goto :eof
:x64
msiexec /i WinZipMSI-64.msi /qn
goto :eof
:eof

copy thelicensefile.wzmul c:\programdata\winzip /Y

 So you need to create a zip with the two msi in it plus the script you find above plus the license file and associate it to the Winzip software under the Software section.

The command to execute will be a ''custom'' one and will be the name of the batch with the bat extension (es: myinstall.bat).
