Slim installer?

Recommended Posts

while I dont speak on behalf of Piriform, Im going to guess they are doing the same delay thing like they did with CCleaner_v3

 

in which its a 3-5 day wait (its becoming the norm, and im fine with, and am, waiting for it)

It's truly uncomfortable that we're still waiting for this one slim version.

 

I'm very dissatisfied and a little bit disappointed.

Two things: Firstly, you didn't pay for Defraggler. Secondly, the only difference is two checkboxes in the installer. Unless you're on dial-up, nothing will change.

For sure I do not pay. For sure it's easy manually remove marks in checkboxes.

But the answer is truly weak.

Have you ever mind why the slim version?

I suggest: for the silent installation.

Have you ever wonder why silent install is so important?

Because makes easier to an application to spread the world.

 

Now I have my solution.

As I'm a little bit skilled in "googling" I can still use the parameter /S for silent install and then unistall the toolbar with this simple vbs script.

' © 2006 Plamdi.com. This file silently uninstalls the Google Toolbar.

Option Explicit:On Error Resume Next

Dim WshShell,a,i:i=0:Set WshShell=WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

a=WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{2318C2B1-4965-11d4-9B18-009027A5CD4F}\UninstallString")

If a<>"" Then WshShell.Run(a&" /S"),1,True:i=1

WshShell=Nothing:Wscript.Quit(i)

 

With the slim I would haven't need this script but the simple switch /S.

 

So I'm gonna looking forward for a new solution to replace defraggler as I will be frustrated with this behavior by Piriform and I will spread out another solution to my little world.

please calm down... i am also waiting, but alot of the software that I use has 3-7 day waits on the "ad free" software

 

IMHO, its TOTALLY worth it!

 

Well for a major release like v1-v2 its questionable, but minor releases its TOTALLY NORMAL and with Piriform software, TOTALLY WORTH IT

 

(CDBurnerXP does it, and god forbid it I didnt have it ping me VIA RSS as soon as its link goes live!)

 

 

be grateful its free at all, or that they plan to provide an ad-free one, THEY DO NOT HAVE TO

 

as a last note... I remember an old piece of software I used to use (they where bought out/closed down), made the freeware version 1 month behind (well depending on the average release, sometimes sooner if major issues where fixed or major version changes)
