It's easier to just use SFX Maker to create a silent installer for the "msi" version, which doesn't include the junks that come with "exe" version. I couldn't find the link to the msi from the official Foxit site, but its available here: http://www.softexia.com/office-tools/pdf/1310-foxit-reader-4.h...

You could also silent install SPTD and then extract DT program files and create shortcut for it. After reboot it will work fine

VLC skins usually have limitation, you'll have to look around a bit to find a good one.

The only way I know how to make MPC look good is to use Aero theme and disable all of its menu features beside the Seek Bar:

Not include drivers for your onboard card in the Windows disc, which is contained in the driver.cab file. Or you can easily use nlite to do it. However a lot of virtual machine softwares required it to have sound.
