I want to silently install NSIS in D:\VLC. I can do that with old VLC version i.e. VLC 1.1.9. But I cannot do the same for VLC 2.0.5.

Here is the command line I am using

vlc-1.1.9-win32.exe /D=D:\vlc\


Old VLC installer can change installation directory with command line

Command for 2.0.5

vlc-2.0.5-win32.exe /D=D:\vlc\


new VLC installer cannot change installation directory with command line

It don't want to download source and re-compile with NSIS. I just want to know is changing directory of installation possible in new VLC? And if yes How?

It seems to me that latest GetParameters is bugged... try case sensitive "/d" – Marco A. Sep 25 '13 at 8:12

what is the output of the parameter command line? Can you print it out? – Marco A. Oct 19 '13 at 9:50

You can fix this, by registering the following registry key before launching the setup: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VideoLAN\VLC] "InstallDir"="D:\vlc"
