Power pack detailled description

2) In MANUAL INSTALL (right-click on dMConvtr.inf file --> click on "Install" command), add the ability to choose additionnal components to install. 1rst, GO TO [ExtraComponents.MarkInstalled] section to make some mods (per default, none will be installed):

; ---[Codecs]---
rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection ""%01%\dMConvtr.inf"",AAC.Encoder.Install,1,N
; rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection ""%01%\dMConvtr.inf"",Monkeys.Install,1,N
; rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection ""%01%\dMConvtr.inf"",Musepack.Install,1,N
rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection ""%01%\dMConvtr.inf"",m4a.Codec.Install,1,N

i.e, commands below allow you

  • to install (incomment out lines) AAC & M4A codecs;
  • but MONKEYS & MUSEPACK codecs(commented out lines) WILL NOT BE.


If u click YES, your selected additionnals components (incomment out lines) will be installed.

If u click NO, only dBpoweramp will be installed. But you can add more codecs later, if necessary, passing through Add/Remove Windows Components.


3) Manual install is silencer as possible. And to prevent the locking of file %programfiles%\Illustrate\dBpoweramp\dbshell.dll during uninstallation of dMC, my script stops (FORCED WAY) the process EXPLORER.EXE. Therefore, all your desktop icons will disappear during a very short time. So, DON'T PANIC !!!

In 'normal' operation, the following screen should appear for 1 to 3 sec. And then be automatically closed by the script:


Instead, if you see screen below


1rst, click on OK buttom from "dBpoweramp Configuration" window then click YES or NO to install or to uninstall pas additionnal components.

Why? During addon installation, you used your mouse/keyboard and then changed the focus.
