  1. Simply love this dance track. Sean Kingston - Fire Burning Also this same song danced in xbox video is cool... (Hard level)
  2. You could add this code in Launch.bat to detect win7 as you did for earlier OS version. (and remove those few lines using systeminfo command. ver | find "6.1" > nul if %ERRORLEVEL% == 0 goto ver_7 For win7.bat, I made these small changes @ECHO off CD %~dp0 <-----new code CD.. CD "apps/winrar/" ECHO Installing WinRAR start "winrar" /wait winrar.exe /s <-----modify code cls ECHO WinRAR Installation completed ! Note: I tested under VM win7x86 with winrar.exe only. (I have admin-right with UAC enabled) I still get UAC warning prior to install winrar.exe If I allow to install, Winrar installed successfully. Cheers
  3. Maybe it is call DoReaderMode and can be found in Comctl32.dll ?
  4. This is pretty funny. I laughed when the woman suddenly punch a guy ... sourcesite
  5. I have some limited knowledge for Adobe reader 9 registry entry. You can inspect the registry location in the following inf first. The inf is to restore Adobe reader 8,9,10,11 to a uninstallable state if some pdf program breaks Adobe reader install/uninstall routine. I strongly suggest before you 'right-click' the inf, and select 'Install', do a manual backup of these registry location in case you wish to restore back to where you are before you run this inf. (Your milegae may varies) The registry location I said to make a backup are in the INF. After run the inf, use Add/remove panel to remove Adobe reader 9. (I assume you can still launch the Adobe Reader 9 uninstaller) Hopefully it will works.

  6. Yeah! Great tune, won't get sick for a long long time... Here is another one : The Band Perry - If I Die Young

  8. Here is another one (MD5) that works in W2K and is redistributable (according to it's Software License Agreement). 14kb in size HTH
  9. This article says "DefaultInstall sections must not be used for device installations. etc" in the 'Remarks' heading. It also says try calling using InstallHinfSection. But also this article says as long as there is an INF Manufacturer section, it generally will also work. We have the section in tplcd.inf [Manufacturer] %Lenovo%=Lenovo,NTx86,NTamd64 Perhaps we can try calling InstallHinfSection on commandline (w/o using infdefaultinstall.exe) rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection D:\@Drivers\$T500\$Common\Video\LCDMon\geoi02w8\tplcd.inf Above are just pure guess on my part.
  10. How difficult is the single line batch/comand using WMIC I posted in post 21? Certainly not hard at all. I always have this "WOW' or "awesome" feeling for a single line code. I wonder why David Wang comes up with such a confusing method using batch. He certainly confuse me
  11. Sorry if my code is wrong. I was just trying to relate the cmd logic directly into vbscript when I look harder at the cmd code. Seems like Obj.AddressWidth method is much easier in vbscript. (in Post #20) vbscript is not something I look or consider scripting as my first choice of language, also there are always so much to learn... Cheers
  12. bphlpt is right in David Wang's case. I realise I got it wrong. Base on bphlpt's post #10 detection logic and also Yzöwl's post #18 batch logic, and using GSM post #11 code but slighly modify, I think the vbscript should look like this: Dim Act :Set Act = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") Dim SysVar : Set SysVar = Act.Environment("System") If SysVar("PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE") = "AMD64" OR SysVar("PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432") = "AMD64" Then WScript.Echo "x64 OS bit" else WScript.Echo "x32 OS bit" End if
  13. Since David Wang post caption is "HOWTO: Detect Process Bitness" and bphlpt also quoted from his post it is "The logic that I use from a program to detect whether the OS is 32bit or 64bit looks like this:" So here we have a conflict of information from his post. However, MSDN post is that PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432 is an environment variable use in 'WOW64 Implementation Details (Windows)' Here is another quote ss64.com where he quoted David Wang post too. (But look at the title: it is 32 bit or 64 bit process detection) Hence the batch file is really a process bitness check, not OS bitness. Just to lighten this discussion, MS also provide an article how to determine whether a computer is running a 32-bit version or 64-bit version of the Windows operating system. The best part of it is in the 'Next Steps'. (Call support if unsure, LOL) Regards
  14. @allen2 The Op just want an example "a way to give the executable a path to extract to, and do so silently." I just provide some sample for him. Not a specific config.txt He can always adjust at his end what he wants etc etc etc Cheers
  15. Why are we checking the value of %PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432% in a batch file? Does it affect the OS bitness result? My common sense tells me since %PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432%'s value is dynamic, it makes no diffenece checking this value that will affect the result of OS bitness. But OS bitness is static. Will this dynmanic value affect a static value? Shouldn't we be checking something that has a static value and consistent throughout the lifetime while the OS is up & running? Just another thought...
  16. try this sample config ;!@Install@!UTF-8! GUIMode="2" OverwriteMode="0" InstallPath="%programfiles%\\KLOCKS" Shortcut="T,{%%T\\KLOCKSNumOn.exe},{},{},{NumLock On},{numlockon}" ;!@InstallEnd@! It will put whatever files you have wrapped up to %programfiles%\Klocks when you run it silently
  17. These songs goes into my iphone (using mediamonkey to transfer):- A Thousand Years - Christina Perri La Passion - Gigi D'Agostino Lullaby - The Cure S & M - Rihanna Say It Right - Nelly Furtado Set Fire To The Rain - Adele
  18. Hi jinkazama Does my inf works for you? What have you tried so far? If doesn't work for you, can you provide more detail... Cheers
  19. PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE6432 comes into picture only when 32-bit application is running on x64 OS. You might find this MSDN article useful. It describes how x64 OS handles 32-bit applications. Running 32-bit Applications (Windows) Also read 'WOW64 Implementation Details'. It mentions PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432 environment variable. In short, PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE6432 is not a variable to check your OS bitness. PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE6432 is (as I see it) transparent to the user as it is how the operating system handles internally 32-bit program within a x64 os.
  20. inf detection logic Just right-click ChkOSbitness.inf and "install" [Version] Signature=$Windows NT$ [DefaultInstall] RegisterDLLs=Start.Register [Start.Register] 11,,rundll32.exe,,,"advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %1%\%infname%.inf,Install" [Install.ntx86] RunPostSetupCommands=echo86 [Install.ntamd64] RunPostSetupCommands=echo64 [echo86] cmd /c echo x86 section is called & pause [echo64] cmd /c echo x64 section is called & pause [Strings] infname=ChkOSbitness
  21. I think gunsmokingman method using Obj.AddressWidth is good enough. (post #9) Here is another one liner code using Obj.AddressWidth I found. The importance of checking bitness is to know the OS's bitness, not CPU bitness. Correct me if I'm wrong, since we can't install x64 OS when CPU is only 32-bit-capable, it makes sense to check OS bitness only. As I also noted, INF has .NTx86, .ntamd64, .ntia64 or .nt section These sections are purely base on OS bitness. Hence what is important during installation is the OS's bitness, not CPU's bitness. For the OP initial problem ("Cannot find the file specified"), I think we can simply further using oShell.CurrentDirectory (like cmd pushd command) Just my thought...
  22. Come to think of it, I think the best way to create shortcut silently is to use OCT 2007 (office customization tool), if you are using it. It allows to create desktop shortcut. Better than any script, IMHO. During uninstall, at least it is able to remove it. For reference, scroll (3/4 down the page) to 'Add/Modify Shortcut Entry dialog box' -> 'Location' for various shortcut location. Best regards
