Guide: Creating addons

Recommended Posts

There should be a box at the top with the default name ie Win7Addon.7z

Just before you click ok just type in .WA instead, if that still does not work then you might have to show all extensions and rename it manually, or just use the Addon Maker tool within W7T.

TNX Legolash2o,

it works :thumbsup_anim:

BTW, is there any plugin (dll) enabling Windows_7_Toolkit_0.7.0.50 to run on WinXP. Because by launching it on WinXP I get "Invalid OS; This program can only be used on Windows 7" message

Regards

Window 7 Toolkit only works on windows 7...

The latest alpha lets you run it on XP and Vista BUT and this is a BIG BUT..... You have to have DISM & Imagex in the correct place for it to work. (Pretty much the same place as Win7.

Wimgapi.dll in System32 folder

Dism.exe in System32 folder

DISM folder in System32 folder

etc...

Crap Cleaner for both x64 and x86


Name=Crap Cleaner
Creator=Legolash2o
Version=2.18.878
Arc=x86!
Description=Cleans all the crap on the computer

[CopyFolder]
CCleaner::Program Files

[CopyFile]
CCleaner.lnk::ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

the description says for both, but the example shows for x86 only... just thought I'd point that out. It should be Arc=x86, correct?

It's been quiet on this thread for a while - not sure if it's the correct place to post this, but if an addon specifies arc=x86 and in the registry files refers to program files - is W7T smart enough to change this to program files (x86) - I know it does this for the tasks file, but wondering about the registry files???

Thanks

Mick

when you add the file, just type in "Copy To" Windows\SysWOW64\

I'll add SysWOW64 to the list :)

thanks 4 such a nice tool but why dont you change the Gui like Rt 7lite (a scrap) or vlite, Gui is much easier, can we get the offline guide in pdf format

Since it seems not only is InstallWatch not in development, but their website is down, I'd prefer to find new developments (& more Win7+ compatible) file/registry change finders. Here is what I found:

WhatChanged by Vista Software / vTaskStudio

free, portable, track only 1 drive?, not updated in a year

http://netbooknetwork.net/2011/track-file-registry-whatchanged/

http://www.vtaskstudio.com/support.php

TrackInstall by Matthias Withopf

free, track multiple folders & drives, updated once in the past 2 years

http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/track-change-in-registry-file-system-with-trackwinstall/

http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.withopf.com%2Ftools%2Ftrackwinstall%2F&langpair=de%7Cen

Integra System Monitor

beta, nice GUI, track different drives at once, might be slower, updated yesterday :)

http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/monitor-and-compare-windows-system-state-files-registry-changes/

http://www.moosoft.com/integrabeta

I'll test one or more of these to see if they work. If anyone has experience in these, please let me know!

Only one I use is regshot...

Once you get it configured to ignore all the stuff you dont need... Works great....

Just my opinion :)

Thanks! But what about where all those files go?

Depends on how complicated the addon is going to be...

I have used many different programs at the same time..... Installwatch to monitor files, regshot for the registry, etc.....

(There is another I use to monitor files, but cant think of it at them moment. Not at home to look..)

If it a complicated addon, it can get very interesting....

Most dont get into to many problems....

Now a addon like Office 2010... Thats a whole different story.... Took me almost week to get that sorted.... It was

a royal pain!

@diddi

You can find it here

P.S.: no one is using torrents any more :)

@caphp, you are wrong on both counts. Your not-so-helpful link just points essentially to Google, as I know you know, so it pointed nowhere. At least you could have filled in the search field for him. I don't consider myself a total idiot, but it took me a few moments to find a valid link for InstallWatchPro.v2.5c, freeware, which was what Legolash2o reccommended using. Having the correct app name helps. :) Here is one possible link http://www.brothersoft.com/installwatch-download-9407.html. Also torrents are very much alive and well, especially since several of the free hosting services no longer allow file sharing. In fact things like DriverPacks are officially distributed ONLY by torrent.

Cheers and Regards
