PDFCreator Silent Install - Prevent Explorer Integration


I have a silent install-package for PDFCreator.
I use the Setup.exe with the argument “/LOADINF=…”.

The Installation is working, but I don’t want the program to integrate into Windows Explorer Shell.
Am I able to tell the installer to prevent the Integration?

Also I wanted to mention, that the installer registered PDFCreator as Default Picture-Viewer in my tests?

Thank you!


yes, you can deselect the integration into the Windows Explorer Shell if you select the expert settings during the setup which you are using to create the .inf file.

Best regards,


I did replace the line “Tasks=winexplorer” to “Tasks=”.

Thank you for your answer and thanks to the programmer, who did make it that flexible … :smile:
