AlexTan; are you patching ure source files with xptsp AFTER any addons and update packs?

Yup, I did the patching at last before I create iso image.

the main difference is that the addon can patch uxtheme.dll file which is responsible for displaying custom themes.it also edits hivesys.inf. but id realy suggest you yousing the addon version and integrate it with rvmi.

Gorki and Mr_Smartepants: In the GUI, I managed to reproduce a situation that produces no CAB files. The destination folder had spaces in the name. I'm going to try to fix the script so that this bug is squashed. I'm going to wait for Bober's release to release my next update, so it will probably be tomorrow.

EDIT: Gorki, the MIGWIZ.EXE message was incorrect. I tested the code on original SP3 copy of the file. Test was positive for the "NoPatch.ByVersion" check. It should have been negative. The next release will fix the script in regards to the improper detection.

Yeah. I'm going to use your version number as mine. If there is GUI code improvements or changes, I'll change my version number with letters (v1.0.10b11a). That way everybody is clear on what version of the resolution files each contains.

EDIT: Wha.... hold on! It's your thread, you're the person releasing the package. I'm just trying to develop the GUI for it, keeping the resources the same as the batch file! I'll follow your lead on version numbers, however, if GUI changes come out between batch releases, I'll modify my version number with letters, like I mentioned before this edit.

So, just to be clear: When you release v1.0.10b11, I'll release the same. Improvements in the GUI that occur between batch versions will get letters attached (ex: v1.0.10b11a). I hope that clears what I meant up! I never meant to control the version numbers in any way!

well since ive alredy edited everything and my files are named b11a on the servers ,ill leave it at b11a for the time being but next rel will be only numbers for me and ill continue like i originaly did.you can continue incrementing by letters if you update between releases.

ok this is really off-topic but its sooo funny:

arnold is a camel hater.

edit: lolol seems he's a horse hater too...i think its become a habit for him to hit 4 legged animals.

Hmm, icon 260 in shell32.res contains only 16x16 resolution wheras the one in V'ISO b8.2.1 contains high res. Is it wanted or is it another bug introduced by removing 4bits icons ?

Kal

EDIT : Same thing for icon 265. I can't chem them all but I'm afraid there's a lot of cases like that :s

EDIT 2 : icon 36/38 res 48x48 are gone too...

EDIT 3 : icon 38, in addition to loose 48x48 res, is only avalaible in 8 bits. Why did you remove these 4bits icons :(

Bober, if you need/want to use letters as well, that's your choice. Don't let me stop you. ^_^;):P

To do so, I'll need to gain access to your latest release WITH 4 bits icons. Then I'll try to apply every changes you made, while keeping those 4 bits icons and high res icons.

well i dont have the missing res and bit depth icons. everything in the pack IS in the pack.

edit: i was thinking of getting them from the viso package where 90% them comes from there anyways.

Going back to VISO would suppose to re-do *all* the changes you made since this project is living... :(

well ya i know,thats why im saying its gonna take a very long time to find the missing resolutions and bit depths and copying them from viso 1 by one,and not replace the whole resource itself.if it were easier id have done it by now....like i said,eventually ill come around and do it but i dont know when.

adding the 4 bit icons is real easy ,its the 48x resolutions that are going to be a pain.and im not sure if the bit depths are gonna be in the right order once re added...ill have to do soem compairing as well.im prety sure not all the resources have ben edited, alot of them still are untouched from viso ...so reorganising them by date should help to skip a few.

I think it would be faster to get the list of modifications brought to V'ISO, take an original V'ISO, and remake these changes. Shouldn't take more than 2/3 hours.

my main concern is the subtile changes i have brought to the resources and might not be visible or apparent ,and that after afew tests some resoruces are way off or something,but i guess it wont be that bad.oh and btw some viso resources were problematic,so its not as if we were replaicng the resources with 'good old ones'.ill have to ask amnesia if he remembers the list of the resources he removed the 4bit icons from.

i jsut remembered he posted the modified pack over on the viso thread...so once its found we can prety much pinpoint which resources have ben stripped of the 4 bit icons.

Which viso resources were problematic?

Anyway, url.dll.res corrupts icon for .url files : no icon ; maybe because I have IE7 slipstreamed and that this res is used for IE6.

EDIT : about url.dll file, it seems it's a IE7 bug.

Weird... I checked on a clean XP SP3 without any gui patch, with OnePiece UpdatePack AIO, created a .url file and icon was blank.
