[Add-On] QTTab Bar v1.2.2.1 & QT Address Bar v0.9.6


Recommended Posts

I have made an attempt to add uninstall capabilities in QTAdressBar addon.

Now you can install it with right click -> install and the correct entries are added to add/remove panel but when you uninstall it fails at deleting files and folders, maybe because they are in use when uninstalling.

If some inf genius can take a look....

BTW, i have checked your addon Doug_QTBar_AddOn_v2.0.7z, and uninstall don't work either.

Some entries and variables are missing, and you have some weird link to TrueTransparency in uninstall

Here is the addon with uninstall capabilities:

QT AddressBar_inf_AddOn_v2.0.rar

[uninstall]

RunPreSetupCommands = Killproc:1

UnregisterDlls = Unregdlls

[killproc]

taskkill /f Whatever.exe

[unregdlls]

%path%\whateverdll.dll

Try adding these sectuions into your inf BEFORE:

RunPostSetupCommands = Cleanfolder

DelFiles = QTAddr1.CopyFiles, QTAddr2.CopyFiles, QTAddr3.CopyFiles, QTAddr4.CopyFiles, PNF.File

DelReg = QTAddr.AddReg, Explorer.AddReg, Uninstall.AddReg

Cleanup = 1

UpdateInis = sysoc.Edit

SmartReboot = I

I would suggest the following:


RunPreSetupCommands = Killproc:1
UnregisterDlls = Unregdlls
DelFiles = QTAddr1.CopyFiles, QTAddr2.CopyFiles, QTAddr3.CopyFiles, QTAddr4.CopyFiles, PNF.File
DelReg = QTAddr.AddReg, Explorer.AddReg, Uninstall.AddReg
RunPostSetupCommands = Cleanfolder
UpdateInis = sysoc.Edit
Cleanup = 1
SmartReboot = I

Thanks you for the headup Kels, uninstall works now! files and folders are deleted

Still few glitches:

tskill explorer.exe dont work (tskill explorer neither and /f is not recognized) but

TASKKILL /F /IM explorer.exe works, so at this time, uninstallation is only compatible with XP Pro

Uninstall.EndPrompt don't show up, probably caused by explorer not working at this time.

Maybe the best way is to delete files on next reboot, so no need to stop explorer (keep compatibility with XP Home) ?

Do you know how to do that ?

here is the updated adon:

(you can see i have not used UnregisterDlls, not needed apparently)

With the Help of ricktendo64, the inf now delete the files on next reboot.

No more need to kill explorer, much better uninstall !

Still one glitch : Original XP address bar will be restored only for the user who had launched the uninstall.

Other user(s) will have to manually re-enable the XP address bar after uninstall of QTAdressBar.

It's a HKCU key, so i can't do better. (tried HKLM and HKCR, no go)

I think it's the final version.

dougiefresh: feel free to add it on your site and in first post.

Also thanks to kels !

I have also updated the non-uninstallable version, now the inf and pnf files are deleted on reboot and sysoc.inf is cleaned after install.

The install is flawless now. ^_^

Despite the fact that you didn't ask, I don't have a problem with the fact that you included it in your add-on AS LONG AS you give proper credit to those created it (me and mooms)..... However, mooms might have an issue with it. I can't speak for mooms on this issue...

Mona = It is not nice to just snag someone elses work and add it to your own....

Agreed....

Hi mona,

First, thank you for your contribution, personaly i don't like this layout, but it's a matter of choice.

About your reg files:

addressbar disabled breadcrumbs, tolbar does the job, but restore disabled breadcrumbs again and broked autologon (i have to choose user despite the fact i have only admin account!) Glad i have tested it in VirtualBox.

I really don't mind that you've added it to your pack, but next time, ask first by courtesy.

kels and dougie: thank you for defending my (our) work

Regards.
