Re: Want a full silent Installation of VLC

You can be able to do a Silent and Full Installation of VLC just by following the followed steps :
  1. Download and install nsis from "nsis.sourceforge.net/Download". This will let you recompile the installation program.
  2. Download and extract the VLC Windows Zip package from "www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html".
  3. Open the vlc.win32.nsi file with Notepad
  4. On line 7, enter the version.
  5. Change line 23 so that the file name uses the correct version variable: ${PRODUCT_VERSION} instead of ${VERSION}.
  6. The component list begins at about line 324. Each component looks like "Section "Component Name" SEC0#. If a '/o' is in front of the component name, it will not be selected by default. Remove the '/o' to have it be selected. Removing them from the Mozilla Plugin and Context Menu components turns it into a full install
  7. From your command prompt (or script), run

I think you can have to noticed that If you can not want that VLC player can be an associated with some of the file types, simply can place a semicolon in front of the line that can containing an extension. That list can be begins on line 110. I had did this for DRM enabled files such as ASX, ASF, WMV and WMA. I guess you should understands from the above explanation.

Re: Want a full silent Installation of VLC

I can find the difficulties in packaging an installer again. The directory of an installation can be different, so there can be no uninstaller and the plugins can not be install as an expected. Hence, there can be an different way to do a full Silent Installation with the most default settings as follows :
  1. Download the latest installer .exe
  2. Copy the exe to a network distribution point, make an install.bat to go with it.
  3. add the VLCMozPlug.reg to the distr directory by installing the soft by hand, then exporting with regedit the relevant key.
