    The program you want to install can probably use different switches..
    If you want to install multiple programs use a batchfile.

    I want to use them as hotfix on an unattended windows setup disk that I want to make. and i saw some installer that for example: windows with firefox + falsh player + its addons . and when i opened the windows disk it was a single .exe file for "firefox + falsh player + its addons" how you do that? I know there is a program that can record installing whats the name and what do you use and suggest? (I'm the brother BTW)
    tnx

    There is NO magic solution (one for all)
    You need to figure out how to make silen install of the programs in question

    Then, as already said, you run the lot from batch file

    But expect quite some work on your part

    For applications that come as an msi file you can run

    msiexec /i application.msi /qn

    For ones that come with a setup.exe you might be able to run

    setup.exe /s

    But to configure the setup options you want can be more difficult involving answer files or properties, you may find AutoIT easier.

    AppDeploy.com you will find many switches, just google the name of the installer along with appdeploy and you should get good results

    CMenu if you are using 32 bit OS and SendToA3x if you are on 64

    For CMenu and SendToA3x you right click the installer and depending on which you install you need to find the "Identify Installer" either in "More Options" or the "Send to" sub menu

    whilst not a complete solution, it will certainly install a lot of the most common apps for you - I would recommend www ninite com - I used this to create an offline frozen installer for a bunch of apps and stuck it inside group policy - now all I do is build the PC and add it to the domain and walk away for a while.

    $20 USD per month for pro - but well worth it in my opinion
