  1. Perhaps I've missed it some where else, but just what information are we uploading back to you? It would be nice to know what specific info you're getting from our systems.
  2. As a side note, does anyone have a good resource for IE9 Registry Tweaks? Perhaps by sharing them here we can inspire Legolash2o to add a few more?
  3. As always, your work is very much appreciated! :beerchug:
  4. Whenever you get the chance will be fine. Thank you, in advance.
  5. New Updates from Microsoft have been released. You can find them at the links below: IntelliType 8.2 32-bit for Windows XP IntelliPoint 8.2 32-bit for Windows XP
  6. Too bad. It's the only one I have. Also, I'm almost certain that it's the latest version you uploaded. The .7z date on my system is the same date the changelog on this thread shows. However, it was the nLite version. Would the RVMi version do the trick? Anyway, I'm no longer using this addon, myself. Apparently I'm still subscribed to the thread and got the notification that someone had posted. Edit: I'm certain it's the same. I just checked the MD5 and it matches the nLite version.
  7. You're amazing, Rick! This is unbelievably selfless of you. BTW, I just PM'd you a link from my DropBox to the current version.
  8. Not certain if you're still updating, but new releases are out. You can find them at the links below: IntelliType 8.15 32-bit IntelliPoint 8.15 32-bit
  9. Thanks for the response. I was aware of the 'old apps issue' and was certain that was not the problem, since I pay close attention to this issue on all apps that I install. The issue resolved itself, although I don't really know how. In addition to the runtime prompt, MU was also prompting me for the latest update for Silverlight. I happen to use a modded version of User_Hidden's Silverlight update and once I installed the Silverlight update, the prompting for the runtime compltely disappeared. Strange, but the issue is resolved. Thanks, again, for your work! :thumbsup_anim: Edit: @Ricktendo - This was also on Windows 7 (64-bit)
  10. Today, for the first time, MS Update was prompting for High Priority Update for: Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 ATL Update kb973923 - x86 8.0.50727.4053 Since this is a rather old update (2009), I was wondering if it may be an issue related to your latest update. Is this normal or might something be amiss?
  11. Perfect! Exactly what I was looking for. How come Microsoft makes it so difficult to find these updated versions?
  12. Thank you for this addon! Can you tell me where you found the source? I'm interested in building a x64 pack and everything I can find on MS's site are older versions.
  13. Great job as always, Rick... Looking forward to the new videos.
  14. Rick, Thanks again for all your work. I noticed on this installer that you can no longer simply run the .msi to install. That's why you had to add the 'INSTALLGUID={8979881A-8E43-467f-B387-E37B914A0E53}' to the command line. My question is... How were you able to discover this command line secret? I have a few other programs that I think this method may work for but I'm uncertain where to begin.
  15. I actually had tried this method with no success. I then discovered why it wasn't working - the folder has to exist PRIOR to the creation of the shortcut or it won't work in Windows 7. Once that was completed all worked as expected. Thanks, again, Rick for your assistance!
  16. Gotta love it! 8 months later and I'm back looking for.... you guessed it - How do you make a shortcut to a folder? Apparently Windows 7 is a bit more fussy than XP.
  17. I'm assuming this installer has been abandoned based on the fact that no update has been made in almost 8 months. Does anyone have another resource or suggestions on how to lighten up this massive installer?
  18. One other item. Line 135 (also in the [unlocker.reg] section) shows as: HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Unlocker","UninstallString",0,"rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection Uberpack.inf,uninstallul" Since there is no section labeled [uninstallul], won't this cause the uninstall to fail?
  19. Thanks for the 'major update'. In taking a look at the inf file, I noticed something that I thought was possibly an oversight in the registry entry for Unlocker. The last 4 lines of the [unlocker.reg] scetion are as follows in your addon: HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\Unlocker.exe",,0x0,"%16422%\Unlocker\Unlocker.exe" HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved","{DDE4BEEB-DDE6-48fd-8EB5-035C09923F83}",0x0,"UnlockerShellExtension" HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\Unlocker.exe",,0x0,"%16422%\Unlocker\Unlocker.exe" HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved","{DDE4BEEB-DDE6-48fd-8EB5-035C09923F83}",0,"UnlockerShellExtension" Since lines 2 and 4 are essentially the same entries, is it possible that the last line above (line 4) should instead be shown as?: HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved","{DDE4BEEB-DDE6-48fd-8EB5-035C09923F83}",0,"UnlockerShellExtension" Thanks, again, for the update!
  20. FYI, VMware Workstation 7.1 has been released. You can find the latest downloads at: VMWare 7.1 Information
  21. You gotta love it! After days of searching for a solution and trying everything I could think of, I discovered a solution less than 10 minutes after leaving the question above. The code snippet below provides the answer for those that may be interested. Apparently the 'space' problem is only present in the file name field. By moving the file name to the directory section and placing double quotes for the file name, the system is 'fooled' into a solution. Thanks again, everyone, for the inspiration provided in this forum.

  22. First of all a BIG thanks to this forum for the great information provided on helping me to learn the inf creation process. A special thanks to Ricktendo64 for his gift of sharing that knowledge. I am having one problem I have not been able to find a solution for - the problem of creating a shortcut for a file name or folder that contains spaces. I realize that there are 2 obvious workarounds (using the 8.3 file name or renaming the file), however neither of those options will work for me in all cases. For one, many people are turning off 8.3 file name creation (it's one of the recommended tweaks for SSD drives) and renaming the file often leads to other problems. I have tried using string replacement and playing with the quotation marks but none seems to work, especially the example below. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. [W7MasterCP.AddShortcut] Name =Master Control Panel,0x00000008,11 CmdLine =16422,%InstallDir%,%MCPL% SubDir =%SysUtilDir% WorkingDir =16422,%InstallDir% InfoTip =%MasterCP_Tip% [W7MasterCP.DelShortcut] Name =Master Control Panel,0x0000000A,11 SubDir =%SysUtilDir% [Strings] InstallDir ="ControlPanel Extender" SysUtilDir ="System Utilities" MCPL ="Master Control Panel.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}" MasterCP_Tip ="Provides access to 100's of Windows settings and functions all in one place."
  23. After installation I tested Then SendTo command "Reg2Inf" and received the following error: The system cannot find the path specified. I then edited line 18 of Reg2InfHandler.cmd (located in C:\Windows\System32\SendTo) and changed it from: %windir%\SysWOW64\reg2inf.exe "%WORKFILE%" "%OUTFILE%" /repvars to: %windir%\system32\reg2inf.exe "%WORKFILE%" "%OUTFILE%" /repvars and it seemed to work fine. I still don't quite get all the idiosyncrasies of working with these dirs in 64-bit OS's but I thought I'd pass this along FWIW.
  24. Kels, As a suggestion, you may want to consider adding the statement: CheckAdminRights = 1to the [DefaultInstall] section of the inf. I believe this will prevent executing the installer without Admin rights, which I found will cause problems. This also leads me to ask if anyone has found a good INF reference that includes the latest 64-bit OS updates to understand the differences in writing INF installers for Windows 7 64-bit versus 32-bit OS's? Along with this, is there a way to flag an executable (.exe, .cmd, .vbs, etc) during the INF install process to prompt for Administrator privileges before execution?
