Updated 6 Dec 08

preview0.23.JPG

  • Features:
  • This is an hta script that will create a "True" addon
  • It can locate an unlimited number of folders and an unlimited number of individual files, as needed
  • It can add an unlimited number of ProfileItmes(shortcuts)
  • It works in temp folder and puts completed addon in your current location
  • It renames every file to comply with 8.3 or can rename only the filename and leave the first 3 characters of the extension
  • It parses the filepath and and inserts most of the DIRID's (16423, 16389, 16410, 16412, 16418, 16416, 16405, 16417, 16384, 16400, 16390, 16403, 16411, 16393, 16392, 16432, 16391, 16386, 16395, 16424, 16419, 16409, 16415, 16408, 16407, 16406, 16422, 16404, 16421, 16425, 16420, 17, 24).

  • Options:
  • Can edit the String Variables
  • Can copy inf to clipboard and edit as you like, then complete the addon on your own.
  • Can add your registry settings
  • Can add a pre-built uninstaller, that will uninstall completely

  • Notes:
  • This is a work in progress.
  • I intend to add the ability to rename all files as you like, or 8.3 and keep the existing extension so long as meets 8.3.
  • I intend to add the ability to insert additional String Variables and integrate them into the inf
  • I hope to be able to allow edit of the the inf on the fly and continue with addon
  • I hope to add a timer and status bar along the bottom of hta
  • I hope the add the ability to resize elements when resizing main page
  • I am open to suggestions for further features

  • Compatibility:
  • Tested in Windows XP and Vista
  • Not tested in 64-bit systems

  • Obstacles:
  • Will not process any folder that you do not have permission to Read, will cause error

Outstanding work Jonnyboy!

I was working on a addon that had 2,338 files in it....

Many of which had the same name.....

Tons and tons of renaming and such.....

Been working on it for much longer than I care to admit......

With this tool.... Took less than 10 min to complete the inf...... :worthy:

Thanks for such a GREAT tool......

Works great, saves toooo much time and trouble in just several mouse clicks. :beerchug:

...

[*] Files that are in use, will not copy when making the cab file, but the file will be included in the file lists

...

This is interesting. Is it possible to override this somehow,or even make some kind of note when making cab so user would be aware on which file to consider for further work with? :(

P.S. I noticed you still have v.011 in title bar... ^_^

I have posted with correct version.

I will test some scripts to validate the filenames and check that each filename in indeed in the cab. When I get it right, I'll post an update. I've had a few days off, back to work tomorrow (6 days a week 14 hour days). But, I'll try to get some done on it.
