Batch wrapper versus MSI editing (Orca)

The question arose out of playing with Active Perl. I had previously written a batch file that executes msiexec with the appropriate switches to control the Perl modules and path. However, now that I've read a little about Orca, I'm wondering which is considered the "cleaner" approach. Batch files s...

Topic is a bit stale, but since I come from a linux background, I picked up unxutils . It's just a compressed file -- not an addon or silent installer. But, it would take much to make it so. I'm still learning the ropes and policies or I'd toss a similar package up based on unxutils. Anyway, has a f...

Bah. I should have checked versions while I was peeking at everything. Downloading update now.

If you don't mind, I would like tuck a copy of CabTool away in case the internet is nuked :)

Aye. It's going to take some time to learn all the stuff included. I'm looking forward to packing some of them into a new install, but going to have to hold off and digest this onslaught of new information. Just when I was finalizing my nLite config and getting familiar with batch files again ... I ...

*embarrassed* I feel like I missed a FAQ somewhere. Had no idea there was a context menu install for inf files. Many thanks ENU-user ... I feel like an idiot, but gained +1 INT.

Ok, I didn't think nLite did non-cabs, but all-in-all I'm fairly new. So, that puts me back in same situation as the original post -- finding a recommended cab utility that I can install. Not in a position where I can re-install at the moment. Undoing the [solved] tag. EDIT: But, using the RunOnceEx...

These were quite helpful; albeit slightly after the fact. [Video] How To make Silent Switch Installers, EXE and MSI examples. Thanks ricktendo64.

I assume it's video 3 (introduces svcpack) that takes the place of the old cab phase for making addons.

Alright, I did not know both Integrator and nLite would accept a switchless installer. That just makes things easier. Much appreciated.

[Solved] Cab file creation

First off, the contributors here (RyanVM, Siginet, Kel, Rick, ENU, code65536, Mrs Peel, etc, etc, etc) should be showered with praise daily. I wish these tools, methods, and packs existed five years ago although that would have prevented me from learning linux ... Anyway, on to the question. I'm att...
