I wish Johnnyboy would continue work on this outstanding tool... Or release the source code so I could update it...   I love this tool.... I still use it today

Nice Fixes

and a new Look

i think you should consider as well making empty folders

your INF Assistant just ignore them

they normally are useless but some times the program doesn't run without them

and you should also consider clear screen Button

after i end first addon and go to another i have to close the INF Assistant and run it again

so a Clear Screen should be Helpful

Edit: when i was trying Added Registry Section

i Found that it Makes [Prog.DelReg]

which will not be used if Uninstaller is not active

I do not know how a generic inf can create an empty folder. It is of course possible to create empty folders and I will look at adding that.

***EDIT***

I think that the easiest way to get the empty folders created is while I am testing to see if the folder is empty. If the folder is empty, create an empty text file and add that to the folder, thus adding the folder.

Would it matter if there was an unreleated file in the folder? If so, I could also add file to DelFiles and run that after install and then the file would be removed. What do you think?

I am sure that all temp files are deleted and that all variables are being reset at the end, so your screen should clear. The only thing that may fail is single file. Sometimes, it grabs a path and will not release it.

Good catch, I will fix this. Edited by Jonnyboy

well i think it wouldn't matter but it can be done as well

throw cmd like runpostsetupcommands

and make a section and added

"CMD /Q /C MD ""%16422%\%programDir%\%emptyFolder%""

it`s up to you

you choose the way you want :icon_cool:

your tool rocks :thumbsup_anim: in every version.

That is the other way of creating empty folders.

I am not sure the best way. This way you navigate to every empty folder that you need added. The other, every empty folder in the paths chosen, would be added.

Yet another choice would be have a pop-up ask if you want to add that empty folder.

well the good in my way you don't have to make an empty text then delete it

it makes the empty folder

and yet your idea about pop-up asking for adding empty folder or not is good

and as i said it`s up to you you the one that type commands i just test it

I am not sure where you are seeing the %. So, did you edit the strings? %program_name%="Prog_Name"

That would be harder than it sounds.

First, an hta is a combination of html and either vbscript or javascript. So, you have to know how to use one of those scripting languages and html.

Second, if you have followed the progress of the INF Assistant and the Firefox Addon Maker, you can see that I am still learning both vbscript and html.

I know only html. Regarding vbscript I'm still learning it too.

Third, I still need to write tutorials for both of the afore mentioned hta's.

Fourth, I haven't completed the afore mentioned hta's. There are still more features being added to both.

Aside from these, I thank you and maybe at a later date, I can try to write a tutorial on hta's.

Ok no prob. I don't want ot put more load on your shoulders (you have done much already :thumbsup_anim: )

Extracting bin\7za.exe

Extracting bin\Cabarc.exe

Extracting bin\safrcdlg.dll

---> Cannot create bin\safrcdlg.dll <--- This is the problem

Extracting InfAssistant.hta

Extracting bin

Sorry for the delay. Just so many things need my attention(rl) and I kept putting this off.

Verify the md5. If it is correct and safrcdlg.dll will not extract properly, download it here and place into the bin folder that is created when you run extract the script. Then, the script should run properly.

Again, sorry for the delay.
