  1. ive just added the keys to my setupreg.hiv after a bit of trouble. WILL NOT install to pe. Don't ask me why, but if you covert the inf to a .reg, you will see that you get errors importing them keys. Also if you try to install the inf, them keys arnt installed either. Im just trying it now. For anybody thats intrested ive attached the .reg file of this ini. Just load setupreg.hiv as PE in HKLM and import it. Later all, Chris. bleh.reg

    Okay, ive just done some more investigating and i found that the speech mark things were causing a problem and that winnt32.exe dosent like my program having its own [settings] Section in its unattended file. So im gonna make it remove the settings section from the tempory file its puts on the hd, as it is just about to pass it to winnt32.exe. That should be most of the big bugs caught. Chris.

    WARNING! WARNING I have just found a severe bug. Its to do with putting speech marks around some values in the config file. I struggled to find out what this was for two hours and ive nearly fixed it! Now it will only put speech marks around values that need it, and it also has alot more error checking to make sure users dont enter invalid values. Ill post it when its finished and ive tested it. I recommend you don't use any of the previous versions, as with this bug there pritty much useless as you couldnt use "John Smith" as a username, coz it contains a space, and the previous versions dont add speech marks. later All Chris.

    Heres 1.02 Has the features and fix's described in the last post. for the Switches, heres how they work. Say u put Switches=/blah /somthing /here the program will do this: winnt32.exe /blah /somthing /here /unattend:C:\ininame.ini as you can se the program automaticly puts spaces before the switchs u add and also after. Enjoy! Chris. iFly.exe iFly.exe

    @ yourtech I could, but whats the point? Just name your files to .ini coz there all text docs anyway.-- I just looked into this, and i had the same problem. The problem is that it trys to copy the temp ini file to the C:\ drive, and the C:\ drive isnt there for me in windows pe... I think this is the same problem you are having. the program NEEDS some sort of HD installed onto the computer to work. Ill make the program see if theres a HD on the computer, if there isnt a HD, ill make it tell the user and exit itself. -- @Bilou_Gateux Ill add this. And it will just pass these commands to the winnt32.exe without even looking at them or checking them. It WILL add before the stuff it adds to the command line. Ill add this for a future build. thanks for the ideas and comments all. ill release a new build with the drive chekcing and the Switches later on today or tomorrow. Later, Chris

    lol.. Im not sure if a plugin *has* to be made, or weather it can just be run from the exe on the cd.. You will have to put all the runtimes, the config folder and the ini in the config folder to test it.. if you do try it, give us a responce, see if it works! Chris.

    Yep, should do if somebody makes a plugin for it! I don't use BartsPE so i have no idea of how to make a plugin lol... Chris.
  9. You may be joking.. but there are plenty of c++, sorry to be blunt, but @ssholes. They think there all top notch becase they know c++ and i only code vb.. and its really annoying. Glad to see you were joking though! Chris.

    Will this support multiple installatin folders, i.e. %CDROM%\WXPP\i386, vice %CDROM%\2003\i386, I am assuming yes but am at work and cannot yet try it. Yes! Ive just finished v2, its got updated graphics and i cleaned all the code and made sure of no bugs. Just compiling it and making sure it works and ill upload! Chris.
  11. Hey.. it dont suck. vb6 is a very fast and affective language and the runtimes are easy to put into pe. So don't start getting all p***y about how your a vc coder and how vb6 sucks. Chris.

    Added an update: UPDATE v0.2 You can now specify the default path to winnt32.exe in your unatended configuration files! To make use of this add a section called [settings] to your ini, with a key called SetupPath - make the value of setuppath the path to your winnt32.exe. Also you can use a variable called %drive%, that gives you the drive that the program is running on. Here an example [settings] SetupPath=%drive%\I386\winnt32.exeLater all, Chris.

    so it scans the directory its in for ini files, puts them in a list and lets the user select one of them from a list? So u can have diffrent configurations? Chris!

    It dosen't matter where you place it - it makes you find winnt32.exe thru a file open dialog. ALSO i forgot - you need the VB6 runtimes in the dir where the program is on the CD. Chris.
  15. Thanks, i will do, and ill report back if it works! Thanks again! chris.
  16. Hello! installationFLY is program, made in visual basic 6, which lets you perform unattended installations on the fly. It works using configuration files. These configuration files are unattended files that you can load in iFly, and use to start a unattended installation. Once you have loaded one of the configuration files it lets you change some settings in the file "On The Fly" e.g. the "Username", "Organization" and all of the other settings that you would want to change from pc to pc - So it saves you making a new file! The newest version is a critical update - it contains alot of new error checking code and a coupple of improvements. Download the latest version from the attachment of this post. -- FAQ: Q: What is the latest version? A: 1.03 Q: Where can i download it? A: From the attachment of this post. Q: I've downloaded it, what do i need to make it work? A: If your running it from PE you need to put the visual basic 6 runtimes in the same folder as it, Make a configuration folder in the same folder as it and put a unatended file in the config folder, that has been renamed to a .ini file. Q: How much does it cost? A: Nothing, its free and allways will be. Q: Whats the url to the website? A: There isnt a website, as of yet Q: I want access to the source code, so i can add some features - will this be possible? A: No. Not for the time being. iFly is closed source. If enough people ask i will consider about making it open source. Q: Where do i put this on my pe or AIO cd? A: Place it where ever you like. It dosen't matter. Q: Where do i place the configuration Files? A: Place them in a directory called CONFIG in the same directory as the program. Q: Can i have multipul configuration files? A: Yep. Q: I have found a bug, what do i do? A: Post it here, or email me it at: chris@fruitytooty.com Q: I don't like the idea of having to manually find the path to winnt32.exe every time, what can i do? A: Yes. Create a section [settings] with a key called SetupPath in your config file. Set SetupPath to your winnt32.exe file. [settings] SetupPath="%drive%\I386\WINNT32.EXE"Q: I've used the SetupPath key to provide the location of the winnt32.exe to the program, but its on a cd, so the drive letter wont be the same every time, how can i get arround this? A: Use the variable %drive% in your SetupPath, the program will replace this with the drive its running on. Q: Can i pass extra command line options to winnt32.exe? A: Yes. Create a section [settings] with a key called Switches in your config file. Set it to the extra arguements you want to pass to winnt32.exe [settings] Switches="/blah /dothis"[/b]-- Trouble Shooting: Q: I get an error about missing dlls, when i run the program, what do i do? A: You need to put the visual basic 6 runtimes in the same folder as the program. Later All. Chris. iFly.zip iFly.zip
  17. Could u just place these keys in your hives? Chris.
  18. It dosen't matter weather you're "giving us a very good program to use if you dont like dont use it ". If its warez, or pirated or anything illegal, its not allowed here, and you should know that. I Recommend you edit the serial out of you're post. Chris.
  19. i think this is "warez".. And as im sure as you all know, theres none of this here! Chris.
