How do I create an installation CD for TntConnect to share with others? This page is locked to prevent further edits

Filed under:

If you want to make an offline installation folder or CD for TntConnect, you not only need "SetupTntConnect.exe", but you should also include include some additional files.  You should include all the "*.7zip" files from here:
http://download.tntware.com/tntconnect/redist/

You should also include all the "tntconnect.help.*.7zip" files from here:
http://download.tntware.com/tntconnect/archive/ in the subfolder specific to your version of SetupTntConnect.exe.

These files should be right next to each other (in the same folder).  The main program "SetupTntConnect.exe" will use the others as it needs to.  If the files are NOT right next to each other, and "SetupTntConnect.exe" needs one of them, it will try to download the needed file over the Internet.

 Here's an example screenshot of a complete folder ready to install on any supported version of Windows without requiring any further downloads from the TntConnect website:

The *.7zip files at download.tntware.com/.../redist do not look similar to the screenshot. They all mention wine? That would be for Linux or Mac. This is confusing. None of the files apart from the help files are available in that folder. What to do?

I am a moron.  I realize I remember the days when a 35mb hard drive was a modern miracle, but I understand zero of what I need to do here.  I agree with Leon.  What to do?

If you wanted to create an installation CD (for PC users only), you'd need to copy all the files found here (for TntMPD 3.0.17):

download.tntware.com/.../3.0.17

and all the files found here:

download.tntware.com/.../redist

into one folder on your CD.  Then just run "SetupTntMPD.exe" to get started.

For Mac users, you could also put this file on the CD:

download.tntware.com/.../TntMPD.3.0.11.dmg

I have the same problem as Leonhedding: the files at download.tntware.com - /tntmpd/redist/ give me files that mention wine. So where is the zip file for pc?

By: Troy Wolbrink Posted on 6 Nov 2013 2:01 PM

You can ignore the 3 files that mention wine (unless you want to share the cd w/ a Mac user to help them do an offline update).  As of right now, the only 2 files you'd need for a PC are:

download.tntware.com/.../chromium_1_0_306b.7zip

download.tntware.com/.../msace2010b.7zip

How do I use the wine files with the Mac installation DMG?

By: Troy Wolbrink Posted on 28 Apr 2014 6:36 PM

James, the Mac Installation DMG already has TntMPD installed.  So none of the .7zip files are needed.  The DMG is pretty much self contained.

Troy,

I'm trying to install TntMPD on a new computer with Windows 8.1 with an exceptionally slow internet connection.  I eventually got the TntMPD setup executable downloaded (3.0.39.0) via a third party download manager.  

The setup tries to download Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 and Google Chromium Emedded Framework 1.0.306.  Due again to the slow connection I can only get a couple hundred Kb before the download hangs and fails.  

I did find the /tntmpd/redist/ folder and downloaded the msace2010b and chromium_1_0_306b 7zip files, placed them in their own folder alongside Setup TntMPD.exe and tried to run the installation again.  No joy--the InstallAware Wizard still tries to download the Access Engine and Chromium Framework files.  I then tried extracting the 7zip files to the same folder as the setup executable--same result.  

Any hints?

Put "msace2010b.7zip" and "chromium_1_0_306b 7zip" right next to "SetupTntMPD.exe".  Don't put the 7zip files in a nearby folder or extract them.
