Hi,

I reinstall Windows 7 every week to have the newest build, so I need to reinstall all of my programs. It's a really boring task :P Is there a way to merge multiple setup files in one setup file? So I open the setup , select which programs to install, click install, walk away, come back half an hour later, and it installed everything? I don't know a lot about programming, but I make sites in HTML and I'm learning Java, so simple programming is possible.

Does anyone know of a program that could do this? It doesn't matter if you have to pay for it, I have my ways to get those programs :badsmile: I tried with Installshield, but then the .dll files and stuff didn't install right. Please help me! Any help will be much appreciated.

Another idea is to find a way to run them simultaneously. Then you can pick your options and let them all run.

I remember Nullsoft Scriptable Install System (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page) to be pretty handy when doing stuff like this! Good luck :)
