Few questions about iexpress.exe RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone. I hope, I'm writing to the right forum, but please move this thread, if it's not so.

    My questions is about IExpress:

    1) I need to hide installing windows from a user. Why in the 'install program' option Command-Line Switches didn't work? I mean, if I typing here 'myprog.exe /qa', it's didn't take an effect. Even if I specify 'Hidden' in the 'Show window' window.

    2)I need to copy some files to the directory, where the program is installed. How I can specify that in 'post install command' option?

  • Hi,

    you can create a slipsteam windows image. Slipstreaming windows xp to create a bootable cd

    I think you will just be perpetuating square bricks. XP/iexpress is dead... Install Shield is last centuries' windows installer. XP was the OS of the last millennium.

    You can download XP and Win7 virtual machines from http://modern.ie. If you are a developer of XP/32 bit PE software, your upgrade path is to a Store (Windows, Google Play, Apple) based distributable that is interoperable on all 64 bit platforms now in common use. Your marketing opportunities have increased considerably. Native mail clients such as iexpress are being replaced in favour of cloud based services such as outlook.com and mail.google.com.

    Regards.

  • I don't think, that's iexpress is really dead. It's still avaiable in Windows 8. Or there some changes from iexpress on Windows XP?

    Install Shield too much cost. I just need some tool (perphaps freeware), which can copy files after installation of program. I'm not a developer, nor I need images of OS, cuz I want to make OS independent installer. What tools can I use for such purpose?

  • Hi,

    well, I am amazed.. iexpress is on this Win8.1 pro version too. (Start>Run>iexpress )

    I already had three mail clients!

    iexpress was distributed with IE6. The api's that integrate it as the IE6 mail client won't work... mapi.ocx I think is flagged with a killbit. You should not even be able to set it as the default mail client in IE. The only possible reason for it still to be there is to support legacy VB 6 programs. Win8 has the VB6RTE already installed, so you would just have to distribute your executable and dlls. There are some legacy vbx ocx that just won't work in a browser though, like listview.

    you can gzip folder and their contents to distribute over the internet... iexpress will not support IPv6 though... repackaging MS software is in breach of your EULA. I wouldn't touch anything in the Windows folder.

    Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the folder with your distributables. Select 7-zip from the context menu and choose an option (eg. zip and email).
