bat file should choose install instead of test on scr-file

i'm creating a cd-drom with a flashmenu that starts with autorun.ini
When clicking a button in the flashmenu, a bat-file is being called with fscommand.
This bat-file should start installing a screensaver (screensaver.src)

My batch-filecommand is: start screensaver.scr

This is ok, but instead of installing the screensaver, the it opens the screensaver config menu.

When rightclicking the screensaver.scr i can see a menu that says:
- TEST (in bold, so default action)
- configure
- install

So what is the command to have it install directly from the batch?

You just need to copy the .scr file to %systemroot%\system32.  To set it as the default you can modify the SCRNSAVE.EXE value under the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop.  The commands below should work.

Note that the REG command was first included with Windows XP, so place a copy of reg.exe in the same folder as the script if you will be running it on 2000 machines.


xcopy screensaver.scr "%systemroot%\system32\" /C /H /R /Y
reg add "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v SCRNSAVE.EXE /t REG_SZ /d "%systemroot%\system32\screensaver.scr" /f
