  1. Can someone help me with a very simple program that can run in the background? I need to kill a task based on a filename whenever it starts. I am running Windows 10 x64 if it matters.
  2. I tried a lot of different configurations from 8GB up to 24GB. I did see an interesting error when trying to set my ramdisk as my VMWare VHD location. It complained about the destination file system not accepting large files. Strange seeing as it was NTFS. I think the problem is with ImDisk. I have used other programs in the past that showed my drives in the Disk Management Console. ImDisk does not.
  3. Have you considered adding RamDisk capability to the Toolkit? I manually run DISM using a RamDisk (Created with Open Source ImDisk: http://www.ltr-data.se/opencode.html) as the ScratchDir and it is significantly faster! Also, maybe someone could help me determine why DISM fails to integrate updates when the MountPoint is on a ramdisk?
  4. I have noticed that if I use your program to install an addon that puts the uninstall information in: HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall it does not add the registry entries. All the files are copied and all other registry entries are added. If I manually install the program from the INF or if I use HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ it works fine.
  5. Wow... New Win Toolkit really helped program responsiveness!

  6. Well, I realize this would take way more effort than it's worth (if it's even possible) so I've given up :|. Everything gets linked properly but none of the files are originally placed in their modified locations. Causes a few problems... More advanced than I, just hoped I could simply trick the OS into doing what I asked.
  7. Thank you crashfly. I just stumbled upon the Win Toolkit which has an image registry editor. Going to work with it for a while.
  8. All of the entries show the system drive as D:, is this going to stay or is it just because my live system is C:?
  9. I would consider that as an option as well, as long as I can run it in the installation process before a bunch of things are assigned the value of the variable in question. Any ideas there?
  10. I would try installing from a usb drive to rule out bad optical drive. If you're not sure how to do that, check out http://arstechnica.com/business/2009/12/the-usb-flash-drive/. If that doesn't work, try integrating drivers using RT Seven Lite Beta 2.6.0 from http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/515-system-type-32-bit-x86-64-bit-x64.html.
  11. I am attempting to modify %ProgramFiles% and %ProgramFiles(x86)% definitions as well as a few minor directories during setup. What I am not sure of is where or when to apply this so windows copies the least amount of files to the default locations. If I have to, I will write a script that finds and replaces any registry entries already modified and use the results of the script to move those files to their new locations. Any guidance is greatly appreciated! Comments also!! I plan on using registry entries like the following. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Session Manager\Environment] "CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES"="F:\\Program Files\\" "CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILESX86"="F:\\Program Files (x86)\\" "Users"="F:\\Users"

  12. This I like and thank you! I hadn't thought of that.
  13. This link comes up not found. Also, I need to know the version of windows installed, not the type of cpu installed. I'm running windows 7 64bit, %os% = Windows_NT. Doesn't help.
  14. Hello, I'm trying to install software on particular machines based on operating system and architecture. I've ran into a wall with this bit of code. For some reason it wont set the variable arch when ran remotely. SYSTEMINFO | FIND "System Type" > C:\sysType.txt FOR /F "usebackq delims=: tokens=3" %%c IN (C:\sysType.txt) DO SET arch=%%c ECHO %arch% | FIND "86" > NUL IF %ERRORLEVEL% == 0 ( GOTO VISTA ) ELSE ( GOTO 64 ) I also use this and it works fine: SYSTEMINFO | FIND "OS Name" > C:\osName.txt FOR /F "usebackq delims=: tokens=2" %%c IN (C:\osName.txt) DO SET vers=%%c vers always has a proper value. What am I doing wrong?
  15. I say, if keeping it web based makes it easier to keep up and we get the same final product... Why not?
  16. Late is better than never right? I may have found the source of your problem. There is a file in the program files directory (%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox\greprefs\security-prefs.js) that is missing with the addon. As far as fixing the addon, I will try in the little spare time I have, but, I am hoping Jonnyboy beats me to it. In the mean time, if you add your own security-prefs.js to that folder it should work.
  17. Of the hundreds of times I've used this addon I have only experienced this problem once. I think it might have something to do with another addon integrated with it. Or possibly a dirty source. Are you trying a clean integration? and what other addons do you use?
  18. 8C34970BA1966CBD35F022121B05B1D0 - 3.60MB is correct. Sorry, I'll see if he can update that for me. Seems I made a mistake! Nothing too vital until the next version comes along. Still I recommend re-downloading if MD5 checksum doesn't match. Will not happen again!!
  19. You're welcome for the update. Cert8.db is copied if you choose to include passwords.
  20. edit the config.txt file in the bin folder. change the line ;eRunProgram="install_flash_player.exe /S" to read ;eRunProgram="install_flash_player.exe /install" then save it and you're good to go.
  21. Integrate this into your windows disk and you wont have to install it after windows installs in your virtual machine. If you are not installing in a virtual setting it will not install. I don't have a Windows 7 or 64 bit operating system to build or test on. Sorry. Created 10/29/2009 Tested with nLite and VMware Workstation 7.0.0 build-203739 on a 32bit Windows XP system. File Name: VMwareTools_8.1.3_b-203739.cab MD5: D8931742AE363DAAEDACACD7B3E9F1AB Links: RapidShare iFileIt
  22. I have been getting this error on almost every topic I visit since the layout change of the forums. Not sure what the problem is but it's a little frustrating. An example of this: http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?/topic/5747-addon-internet-explorer-8-enu-true-addon/page__pid__51353__mode__threaded__show__100__st__100#entry51353 Any particular reason this might be happening to me? I haven't seen anyone else complain about this so I have to assume it could be a problem on my end. I'm running Firefox 3.5.1, Windows XP Pro SP3, All windows updates are installed.
