    hello:

    Was wondering if I could get some help:

    I am trying to install adobe reader 7.05 using a silent install method.
    What I wish to do is to make it part of a script where it will install
    with no user intervention required. I have looked on the adobe web
    sight, and it just seemed to confuse me more lol. I would like to
    create a .mst file for it if possible. My intention is to make it part
    of a run once command at the end of a windows installation dvd. I would
    also like to do the same thing with firefox as well. I have managed to
    do this with office 2k3 and visio, but not with the others previously
    mentioned.

    I am pretty new to all of this so its a learning experience for me.
    Any helpfull comments would be welcomed.


    Thanks

    Greg


    Also is there a way to find and download post service pack 2 updates for
    windows xp easily? What I am looking for is a list of security patches
    and hotfixes from service pack 2 to present...I can't seem to find that
    specific list... can they be slipstreamed the same way that service
    pack two can(possibly via script?)

    Here is what I have so far for my run once batch file. I know it needs
    some cleaning up, but its still a work in progress...

    net localgroup Administrators y_image /add

    If you executed something like that on my machine without my permission
    I'd have to do something very nasty to you.

    So you want to design something that behaves like... spyware.

    no, thats not my intention. What I want to do is save some time when I do
    a clean install of a machine. spyware or malicious programming really has
    nothing to do with this picture. in fact windows defender is installed to
    prevent such a thing. The script that I posted was part of the "run once"
    command at the end of a winnt.sif file.
