FFaM v0.9.0.2 posted

Hello all!!

Long time, no here. I finally finished with my classes and had a little time to work on this the last couple of days. I know, it was supposed to be done before Christmas. Sorry, this was the best that I could do.

I am posting the current file on my sourceforge. Be warned, it is not 100% done, but it is very close. A few things that do not work, yet.

1) Flash and Shockwave will not install.

2) The shortcuts will not be created.

3) It may only install into the default location.

4) The app is missing alot of error catching routines. I am very new to C# and do not know how to use it very well. So, you may get an "unhandled exception" or some other fatal error. If you do, please screenshot it and post it for me. Then, I can fix it.

To finish these few items, I need to set up a some VM 's to test the installs on. This was written and tested on 1 Win7 x64 system.

Please test and post any bugs. The app requires .Net 3.5. Sorry, but I could not get everything working properly in .Net 2.0.

Thank you all,

~jonnyboy

Not at the moment, and maybe not ever. I removed all of the optimized builds for a couple of reasons. But, mostly because the links for their builds changed with every update. That meant for my app to be current, I had to update it for every new build of every optimized version of firefox. I have gotten better with regex and my add them in the future. I won't add them if I have to manually update their links for every update.

Having a stable and upgradeable x64 version of firefox would be nice. But, most of the plugins and extensions are not built for x64, and may not work.

Thank you very much for your detailed and informative answer. In custom firefox builds, palemoon has a special place. I think if you support palemoon only, this will make your fiFaM will become attractive and valuable.

I need a little help.

The old links for Adobe Flash Installer have been removed and replaced with these links.

In my app, I would like to verify the MD5 hashes of the downloaded files. Now, to my question. Does anyone know where I can find a link for the MD5 hashes, posted by Adobe?

Hello,

I used FFaM v9.0.4 to create my silent installer.

Everything went fine, I got the "Installer Created" prompt window... but I can't find the installer anywhere.

Nothing is added on my desktop, neither in the app source folder.

Where am I wrong?

(My OS is Win7 x64 in italian, if that helps).

There was a problem with the paths. I may have fixed it, but the next update is not quite ready. In the meantime try this.

Please let me know if this corrects the problem.

thank you

New version worked flawlessly :)

It created the silent installer in the source directory of FFaM.

I just want to let you know that the first time I ran it, I got a "unhandled exception" error saying that "C:\Users\MYNAME\AppData\Temp\Files\GoRC.exe" file was already in use by another process. I closed FFaM and restarted and everything was OK... just reporting ;)

BTW, thank you very much for the help!

If you are running a system with system language other than English, I have a question.

Do the "Pinned" shortcuts appear when you choose to create them? If not, let me know.

Thank you

Hello Jonnyboy.

I tested the version you linked me yesterday, not the one in 1st page. I integrated it with RT7Lite and integration went fine. I booted up with VirtualBox and that's the result:

Firefox is in my Programs folder and it is perfectly cutomized as I want it, but...

it DID NOT add any shortcut: neither start menu, nor quick launch (I had to manually browse through Programs folder to find Firefox was there).

The options I set in FFaM are Quick Launch *Pinned*, Start Menu *Pinned* and Start Menu\Programs.

My system is in Italian.

The link I gave you was an incomplete update, lots of stuff completed since then, including shortcuts. I just posted the update, if you have the time, could you try it?

Thank you

I will, as soon as I can.

Anyway, if I want Firefox shows in my start menu and quick launch bar only, should I set the three Quick Launch *Pinned* (User), Start Menu *Pinned* and Start Menu\Programs?

(i.e. I don'want FF shortcut on desktop)

That's correct. The other 2 would put one on the desktop and in Start Menu\Programs\(Whatever) folder.

Hi again, I just tested the new FFaM v9.0.5 and selected the three settings mentioned above.

It partially worked, as Firefox shortcut was created in start menu (pinned and non-pinned), but no quick launch icon at all, just like the program ignored the Quick Launch *Pinned* (User) command.

My test was made on VirtualBox, Win7 x64, Italian language.

KUTGW! :)

I believe that I have it fixed. But, I am using a VM and installing the language packs, then changing the default language and try to create the shortcut. The are 35 language packs, including English. I am building a test machine now and I hope to have all of the languages tested and fixed by tomorrow.

If, I don't find any other bugs that are quickly fixed, I will post an up tomorrow or the next day. That is, assuming that I get all of the languages tested and working.

Oh, wait a minute, the update checker has to be completed first. So, add another day or two.

PS.

KUTGW?

Honestly, I have never seen it before and I had to Google it.
