    Clonedrive or Alternative on Windows 7 Enterprise

    We would like a virtual cd/dvd rom drive on our shiney new Windows 7 Enterprise machines.

    I have created an installer which works with WPKG to deploy the software, however it fails due to the driver install prompting for unsafe drivers.
    On Windows 7 pro I know you can disable this prompt, but I haven't been able to get this to work on Enterprise.

    Do any of you know of a way of doing this, or an alternate package that will install silently?

    Cheers
    Pete.

    Thank you for this, although it still has to prompt for installation of drivers. Really looking for a completely silent install. Doesn't look like you can do that on Windows 7 Enterprise with 3rd party drivers :-(

    Virtual CloneDrive can be installed silently if you import SlySoft's (expired) coding signing certificate into the local computers certificate store. e.g.

    Code:
    @echo off
    setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
    set SCRIPTDIR=%~dp0
    set SCRIPTDIR=%SCRIPTDIR:~0,-1%
    
    certutil -f -addstore TrustedPublisher "%SCRIPTDIR%\SetupVirtualCloneDrive5450.cer"
    start "" /wait "%SCRIPTDIR%\SetupVirtualCloneDrive5450.exe" /S /NoReboot
    del /q "%Public%\Desktop\Virtual CloneDrive.lnk"
    Copy-and-paste the following text into Notepad, save as SetupVirtualCloneDrive5450.cer and place in the same folder as the installer (or deploy the certificate via a GPO).

    Code:
    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

    The script ran fine, imported the cert; however windows 7 still prompted to install the driver.
    Never mind, I think we will capture the driver in the windows image to make sure it's always there.
    Cheers for the help anyway.

    Pete.
