  1. Thanks again for keeping it updated
  2. Thanks for the update mooms :dancing:
  3. @Thiersee. Great idea. I'll try that too. Did you use the SFX-installer with the vcd.reg in it or one without it?
  4. I'm using Win Toolkit This afternoon I ran it on a different computer and rebuild the image. Again no installation of the SFX. I'm giving up; it's not worth the time compared to doubleclicking the SFX after Windows installation Thank you for your patience and help trying to solve this puzzle :thumbsup:
  5. Bug fixes release immediately; enhancement once a week. BTW: Latest build Sunday 3rd May 2015 :g:
  6. Yes, the SFX_VCD5470.exe is in \WinToolkit_Apps\SFX_VCD5470\. Silverlight-x64.exe in \WinToolkit_Apps\Silverlight-x64\ is installed fine (with switch /q). I've integrated your original SFX from #1 before with the same Win Toolkit. VCD was installed then (with 1 drive and without TrayIcon) when Windows installation finished . I've made the SFX using your 7zsd.sfx with config.txt: ;!@Install@!UTF-8! GUIMode="2" MiscFlags="4" RunProgram="hidcon:cmd /c certutil -addstore \"TrustedPublisher\" EB.cer" RunProgram="VCD5470.exe /S /noreboot" RunProgram="hidcon:cmd /c reg delete \"HKLM\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run\" /v VirtualCloneDrive /f" RunProgram="\"regedit\" /S VCD.reg" Delete="%CommonDesktop%\\Virtual CloneDrive.lnk" ;!@InstallEnd@! and MakeSFX.cmd: 7za a vcd.7z ".\VCD5470\*" -mx=5 copy /b 7zsd.sfx + config.txt + vcd.7z SFX_VCD5470.exe del /f /q "vcd.7z" while folder VCD5470 contained EB.cer+VCD.reg and VCD5470.exe. Do you see any mistakes? Or should I perhaps use a 64-bit 7zsd.sfx? Or .......?
  7. @mooms Thanks again for your help. I've run the modified "SFX_VCD5470.exe" and it works perfectly. I then added it to the silent install of Win Toolkit and made a new image. After installation there's no trace of VCD so I guess I'm missing something again :confused02: Do I need to use a switch (/q, /ai, ...) or do anything else to make it work?
  8. Image was made before latest addon. It's just missing these 2 .NET updates, not worth rebuilding from scratch. Is it possible to use the addon on top of what's already in the image?
  9. I did not get 7za.exe when extracting, however thought I understood it by now and wanted to write down the steps I took. So I went back to the original SFX from #1. I used 7ZSplit (Install configuration+7z) and got SFX_VCD5470.txt + SFX_VCD5470.7z. I did not get 7zsd.sfx :g: I've done a lot of trial&error these last days and I can't recall how I got it when I first started with modification. It's really very confusing and I'm lost again :omg: What am I missing now????
  10. @mooms Thanks for your help and the personalized SFX. I saw your answer only today. I did some comparison and testing: I didn't have the line with taskkill (yet it worked as well) and kept the delete .lnk lineAfter extracting your rar and running vcd.cmd I got a SFX with size 59.155Additonal extracting of SFX_VCD5470.exe to \VCD made no differenceWhen I added 7za.exe I got a SFX with same size as yoursWith your 7zsd.sfx I get a SFX with Virtual Sheep icon :icon_cool: . The one I had gives a 7zSFX icon.Is the icon creation a standard behavior of your 7zsd.sfx or did you modify it?
  11. @mooms: Thank you for your quick response :prop: -I used "7zsd_160_2712.7z" following your link in #17 (See here to learn how to make a 7zip SFX.). -I wasn't aware date was added. My mistake; it must have happened accidentally when copying and pasting into the wrong Window :confused02: -right click shows 3 Stations (=Virtual Drives): After running the SFX I clicked on the VCD TrayIcon. It showed a menu with Settings, Help, Station F:, Station G: and Station H:. That was according to value in VCD.reg ("NumberOfDrives"=dword:00000003). However, Clicking settings showed number of drives=1 and there was no "NumberOfDrives" in the Registry. -I basically used your config from #3 and added "RunProgram="\"regedit\" /S your_reg_file.reg" from #17. When I manually ran "VCD.reg /s" directly after running the SFX I did not kill the daemon tray and everything was OK. So I guessed I didn't need the taskkill line. SOLVED :dancing: VCD.reg was in the folder with config.txt and MakeSFX.cmd. After moving VCD.reg to the VCD folder it worked. It appears I've been fishing with the hook in the boat instead of in the water :doh:
  12. I've updated my W7Pro-x64 image (.NET already integrated) with Win Toolkit. After installing these 2 updates are the only ones showing up in WindowsUpdate. In Win Toolkit I can only add .cab or .msu. These updates come as .exe. Extracting gives .msp and I can't extract that. I'd like to make my image fully up-to-date. Could you please explain how to get these updates as .cab or .msu?
  13. @mooms Thanks for your SFX and explanation how to remake it. I've been fishing for few days now, however still no fish :doh: Please help :please: I'm trying to get a SFX with 3 Drives, VirtualSheep, SaveHistory and ShowTrayIcon. Here is what I did (Win7Pro-x64): 1. made VCD.reg: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Elaborate Bytes\VirtualCloneDrive] "VirtualSheep"=dword:00000001 "EjectUnmounts"=dword:00000000 "KeepHistory"=dword:00000001 "AutoMount"=dword:00000000 "ShowTrayIcon"=dword:00000001 "NumberOfDrives"=dword:00000003 "VCDDriveMask"=dword:000000e0 2. made config.txt ;!@Install@!UTF-8! GUIMode="2" MiscFlags="4" RunProgram="hidcon:cmd /c certutil -addstore \"TrustedPublisher\" EB.cer" RunProgram="VCD5470.exe /S /noreboot1:03 3-6-2015" RunProgram="\"regedit\" /S VCD.reg" Delete="%CommonDesktop%\\Virtual CloneDrive.lnk" ;!@InstallEnd@! 3. Made MakeSFX.cmd en executed it: 7za a vcd.7z ".\VCD5470\*" -mx=5 copy /b 7zsd.sfx + config.txt + vcd.7z SFX_VCD5470.exe del /f /q "vcd.7z" 4. Then I executed the generated SFX_VCD5470.exe. Result: -TrayIcon is present and right click shows 3 Stations -Clicking settings shows number off drives=1 and Virtual Sheep unchecked -In the registry (HKCU\Software\Elaborate Bytes\VirtualCloneDrive) I just get VCDDriveMask key. After running "VCD.reg /s" all keys were added and settings are as they ought to be, so it seems to me VCD.reg is OK. It just isn't processed during SFX. How can this be solved?
  14. Thanks and please help. I added the .WA file to Addons in Win Toolkit When installing image Windows reported it needed file HashCheck x64.dll from CD and asked if I wanted to install from C:\Windows\inf\HCFiles. This folder is present, however empty. How to solve this?
