  1. Only if you use multiple windows. You can set the icon for each window.
  2. This is to run my alternative RunOnceEx, so it starts installing. If it is not installed at the time of script execution, run the installer instead of the RunOnceEx.exe application.
  3. Well, the something are the application entries needed to let Alternative RunOnceEx work, which will be added to the registry when running the BAT or CMD file which Alternative RunOnceEx Script Creator creates.
  4. 1. Try this: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\SuperHidden] "Type"="checkbox" "Text"="@shell32.dll,-30508" "WarningIfNotDefault"="@shell32.dll,-28964" "HKeyRoot"=dword:80000001 "RegPath"="Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\Advanced" "ValueName"="ShowSuperHidden" "CheckedValue"=dword:00000000 "UncheckedValue"=dword:00000001 "DefaultValue"=dword:00000001 "HelpID"="shell.hlp#51103" 2. I don't know.
  5. You forgot the quotes in REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "( TITLE HERE ) /f. And this SHOULD work with mine too, if you do NOT use start /wait rundll32.exe iernonce.dll,RunOnceExProcess, but run the Alternative RunOnceEx installer ONLY ONCE AT THE END. After inserting the first window entry's in the registry, you must set the %KEY% to (...)\Ruby Software\RunOnceEx2, to define the secound window. That should work. Example: @echo off cmdow @ /HID SET KEY="HKLM\SOFTWARE\Ruby Software\RunOnceEx" REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "( TITLE HERE )" /f REG ADD %KEY%\035 /VE /D "Chipset Software Installa
  6. I've just uploaded a new version (1.6). Does this fix your problem? If you're NOT using this for an unattended installation: Remove the registry value for Alternative RunOnceEx in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run first!
  7. That secound window should NOT install your applications again, it should only add this RunOnceEx to the RunOnce registry key. If that's all what happens, I can't fix it.
  8. Found a way to fix that DPI issue. Now uploading version 1.0.1. (build 64).
  9. That could be because your screen resolution is 800x600. You need to set the screen resolution to at least 1024x768.
  10. Make a batch file which sets the %TEMP% and %TMP% environment variables, and add it to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.
  11. You aren't doing anything wrong. Windows just starts after RunOnceEx.exe is finished, but that RunOnceEx calls itself again because another window must be loaded. Windows doesn't wait for that other instance of RunOnceEx.exe which is running. I'll try to fix this.
  12. This: cmdow @ /HID @echo off REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce /V "Alternative RunOnceEx by Ruby Software" /D "Insert path to the installer here!!! /verysilent" /f You should replace Insert path to the installer here!!! with the path to the installer (e.g. %systemdrive%\RunOnceEx.exe)
  13. Yes, but you also need to add the entry's for the secound window to the RunOnceEx2 REGISTRY KEY. If you use my Script Creator, set the RunOnceEx Window Number to 2 while exporting the secound script.
  14. That's usually not possible, as the application entry's are deleted at the end of application runs, but you can add a .bat or .cmd file to the RunOnceEx2 key, which adds the new applications to the RunOnceEx key, but this will show a secound RunOnceEx window after the first (because you use the RunOnceEx2 key).
  15. That will add the RunOnceEx to the RunOnce key again. But it might also install the applications again. I'll try to fix the problem. Edit: It should be fixed now.
  16. Of course, but I don't have a language system yet. I'll send you the necessary information and include it in the next version.
  17. 'Something' must be added to the registry first.
  18. Hello, I have created a RunOnceEx Script Creator which I have made for my own Alternative RunOnceEx, but it can also create scripts for Windows' RunOnceEx feature (however the customized graphics and text, except the title, will not work in that case). Screenshot: Download (Version 1.0.1, Jan 24, 2008) VERSION HISTORY Version 1.0.1 (Build 64) - Multi language support - Fixed DPI issues (still requires 1024x768 screen resolution or above though) Version 1.0 (Build 49) - First release
  19. I have just updated it. The new version 1.3 adds support for multiple windows.
  20. %systemroot%\system32\RunOnceEx.exe (Marked as system file, so you don't find it in Windows Explorer, just like the dllcache folder) If you want to uninstall it: Use my Alternative RunOnceEx uninstaller, available here.
