Silent Install Helper 0.9.9.9
Install multiple programs silently - no user interaction required

Silent Install Helper is a clever tool which can help you install multiple applications without seeing any of the usual alerts and dialog boxes. That is, when it works you won't see any splash screens, program licences or requests to choose an installation folder: the applications just end up on your hard drive with the default settings.

To begin, drag and drop your chosen setup files onto the program, and Silent Install Helper will try to identify their type, and list the results. If a setup program is based on a known installer (Inno Setup, Smart, Wise, Nullsoft NSIS, RAR SFX, ZIP SFX, Microsoft, Ghost Install Wizard are supported) then it should be possible to install it silently. But if its "Installer Type" is listed as "Nothing found" then this means it's not been recognised, and you'll only be able to run a standard installation.

If you're trying out Silent Install Helper to see if it works then we'd recommend you remove any unsupported setup programs from the list (right-click each one in turn, select "Delete").

To install whatever programs remain, click Select All > Start. Depending on your installers, you may see brief pop-up messages alerting you that a particular setup program is being launched, but otherwise that should be it. You'll see no dialog boxes, no requests for information, not even a message from Silent Install Helper to tell you the process is over - your applications just get installed.

Alternatively, if you'd like to save this list of programs on multiple PCs (they're all your favourite applications, say), then select the installers and click "Create *.cmd file". This produces a script which you can save along with the setup programs. Copy these to any PC, double-click the "setup.cmd" file and your programs will be installed automatically.
 

Verdict:

The interface isn't as intuitive as we'd like, but once you figure out the basics then Silent Install Helper proves to be a convenient tool which makes it quicker and easier to batch install your chosen applications.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
