My nilte guide part 2......make your own addons......

Recommended Posts

Download a few add ons and extract them to a file. Notice the .ini file. You can open and edit it in notepad. Thats the one you will need to change around a bit to fix any install errors. Here is a example of what you will see in the .ini file. This example is a program called unlocker. Notice the "[Add Program]" Below that word is the install command. In this example the install command would be "UnLocker185.exe /s"   

[general]

build date=08/10/2006

description=Unlocker

language=English

version=1.8.5

website=http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/

[EditFile]

I386SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram

[AddProgram]

Unlocker185.exe /S

Now with the program nlite addon maker I made my own custom "unlocker install" I open the file that the nlite

addon maker made for me. The .in file it made was like this.

[general]

build date=08/10/2006

description=Unlocker

language=English

version=1.8.5

website=http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/

[EditFile]

I386SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,Add Program

[Add Program]

Unlocker185.exe

Notice the  /S was missing from it? Well my addon still worked fine and installed fine without the need of the

/S command. But if a install failed, I would edit the  .ini to match the example.  While installing with Microsoft  virtual pc if a error would occur, a pop up screen will tell you what needs to be added to make the install work.

I will provide a example of that. I want to install a program called "ultimatedefrag" with my xp install. I wanted to make it a no touch no hassle install. I know if I just made the file with nlite add on maker it would install fine, But I would have to press various buttons and such. So I extracted the files made with nlite addon maker. This is what the  .ini file looked like.

I made a new .ini file that looks like this. I made it this way so I know the install would fail.

ultimatedefrag.exe /Z

...................................................................

I want to stress the important part is the [AddProgram]

                                            ultimatedefrag.exe /Z

...........................................................................

The Stuff under [general] is really not important or necessary to fill out. But Its nice to have so the choice is yours.

So I tried it in virtual pc and got this message.

................................

Illegal command line atom:

Z

Usage:

UltimateDefagSetUpTrial.exe [/a][/b1:"commands"]

[/b2:"commands"][/b3:"commands"][/d:"dir"][/n:"name"]

[/u:"name"][/r:"program"]

/a     Automatic Mode

/d:"dir"    Overide installation directory

/b1:"cinnabds"   Add commands to the end of the Pre-Installation Batch

/n:"name"   Override product name

/u:"name"    Uninstall product by name

/r:"program"    Run the specified program after a successful installation

..............................................................................

So after reading the error message I simply made a new .ini file to look like this.

....................................................................

[general]

builddate=8/18/2008

description=ultimate defrager

language=English (United States)

title=ultimate defrager

version=2.0.0.51

[EditFile]

I386SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram

[AddProgram]

UltimateDefrag.exe /a

....................................................

Took the new .ini file I now had, the "svcpack" folder. Put them in a 7 zip format. Tried the add on one more time and it worked fine.

Or simply vist a nilte forum. Copy and paste your  .ini file and someone will tell you how and what to change in it to make the addon work and install properly.

Hope all this helped and made sense. Have a nice day and help others please.

If a active mod will let me contact through pm, there is something I want to ask If I can do or not do. Want to ok with a mod before saying anymore.
