  1. Well, it's out. Here's what's new in Firefox 1.0.5: * Several security fixes. * Improvements to stability. Really only security bugfixes, but it's notable faster than 1.0.4 for me. Anyway, this should be the last release before 1.1. Also, DP 1.1a2 should come any minute now.
  2. @prathapml: okay, I'll bump it more. @rajesh.kumar: Weird. I'm on a laptop using only one drive so I didn't thoroughly tested it yet. It worked however on my desktop with multiple drives. edit: what the, since when did this become sticky. Goody edit2: *deleted test-routine* I confirmed the problem. That's a good thing, as it's always better that I can reproduce it. I'll look into it and fix this problem soon. Maybe even today. Sorry for the probs. edit3: I've fixed it I think. <span style='font-size:9pt;line-height:100%'> </span>You can download it at the first page. I first fixed this bug in the version I was working with, so I'm gonna throw my progress on that one online too: <span style='font-size:9pt;line-height:100%'> </span>Let's see, what's new? "/s" is meant to play a soundfile (MP3/WAV, no OGG or FLAC or so ) when the GUI-window appears. I'll improve this parameter later anyway. Next, instead of drive letter, drive number, or "/g" to detect a drive by label, there's also "/f" now. It looks like "/g", but instead of searching to the drive holding a disc with a certain label in it, it looks for the drive holding a disc with a certain file. It automatically adds the drive letter in front of a path, so if you do this: cdwitch Disc_One /f:cd.txt it will look for cd.txt in the root of the disc. so D:\cd.txt. If you want to look into folders too, it's the same: cdwitch Disc_One /f:Install\Apps\cd.txt so, D:\Install\Apps\cd.txt. One last change is that "/w" has been renamed to "/rw". At least now you can tell it's connected to "/r". Download CDswitch 0.8a2 here (179k)
  3. Two cents: - There is a bug around integrating .torrent tightly into Mozilla Firefox, but it hasn't been confirmed or really discussed in any way. They want to leave it for an extension, and for a user to pick. - Enter MozTorrent, an extension you install. Too bad I haven't really seen much progress in this extension lately. Anyway, whatever, I think that .torrent isn't meant for browsers. Dot. Azureus > All.
  4. Yeah, with PID I can seperate processes with the same name. I'll include both options in the next version. The second you're asking, I cannot do. I can only pipe to cmd's my app spawns. However, I think that PsList basically does what you want.
  5. 0.2: now notices the difference between firefox.exe and firefox.exe (as an example).
  6. Well, in one of my latest uA discs I noticed that the use of my virtual memory was going thro the roof. My VMware couldn't even handle it anymore so it started complaining about 'not enough virtual memory, press OK to expand it'. Not very unattended-like. Anyway, I noticed that most setups "leave" processes running in the background. After about 20 setups (this includes Office and OpenOffice, two big boys) processes of over 80meg were just "left behind". Detecting and pskilling them manually is not my thing, so I introduce VMcleaner 0.2. Here's how it works, when you use the parameter "/w": vmcleaner /w it wil create a list of the currently running tasks and save in a file in the TEMP-directory. If you're a bit clever, you know that you need to run this at the beginning of your install method (RunOnceEx/XPlode/...), preferably the first entry. Afterwards, run VMcleaner without any parameters vmcleaner once in a while (after every setup, after five setups, whatever, your choice). It will detect all the tasks again and kill any new ones that were created. This makes the virtual memory less occupied and faster again. You can run the first command again anytime to rewrite the tasks that shouldn't be killed. *wanders off* edit: and it can be used in a normal Windows-environment too! *shuts down 100 notepads* VMcleaner02.zip v0.2 (10/07/2005): - Can now detect and kill a similar-named task
  7. I hoped that the last time.
  8. <span style='font-size:9pt;line-height:100%'> </span><span style='font-size:9pt;line-height:100%'> </span>Both on first page <span style='font-size:9pt;line-height:100%'> </span>Let's see. Bug fixes. Most changes goto Variables Mode I guess. The old parameters won't do anymore, they weren't very clear. It now looks like Silent Mode to use. You call it with "/v", then choose the action, /c (create) or /d (delete). Finally, pick a drive or "ALL". This mode can now use the disc variations to write to a variable. Examples: Write all drives to %CD1%, %CD2%, ... cdswitch /v /c ALL Delete those again cdswitch /v /d ALL Create or delete them on a user-level cdswitch /v /c ALL /u cdswitch /v /d ALL /u Write one drive letter to the variable %CDDRIVE% cdswitch /v /c d: or for the first drive cdswitch /v /c 1 or second cdswitch /v /c 2 or the drive containing the disc with label "Disc_One" cdswitch /v /c /g:"Disc_One" Delete it again: cdswitch /v /d Both on a user level: cdswitch /v /c d: /u cdswitch /v /d /u Silent Mode also has some changes, but nothing that you'll really notice (unless you want to use a disc with label "/s" in Normal Mode :/) For Normal Mode, there are some extra font-attributes you can set. "/lr" to strikethrough, "/li" to italic and "/lu" to underline. Second new parameter is "/b", which -when used- hides the small black border. cdswitch test 1 /li /lr /lu /b (to show 'em all at once), spawns this: One final thing, it was requested by someone in this topic, the %errorlevel% variable is set now depending on how CDswitch exited. 3 -> CDswitch exited normally 4 -> CDswitch exited with an error ("/r" was ignored) 5 -> too few parameters were supplied 6 -> Silent Mode was launched, but with too few parameters 7 -> Silent Mode exited succesfully 8 -> Variables Mode was launched, but with too few parameters 9 -> Variables Mode exited succesfully <span style='font-size:12pt;line-height:100%'> Download CDswitch 0.8a here (179k).</span> I wonder how many people get sick of this topic getting bumped all the time.
  9. Set up an SF-page, if that's possible.
  10. I don't really think it's possible. Running at text-mode can't be done as far as I know, so the alternative would be running at presetup.cmd, before the actually GUI-mode setup. This is very tricky, as Windows isn't capable of launching any advanced programs then (stuff like Notepad or my CDswitch won't work then). It's only capable to execute basic DOS-programs. Now, I don't see why you would want to copy over such a large amount of data. Two reasons and work-arounds: - to copy over installers: install from CD - to copy plain data: copy from CD later Both would be faster anyway. I'll look into it, but don't get your hopes up.
  11. Good luck then... you'll need it.
  12. Don't agree. People like Nuhi or Bashrat have been working quite some time on most of these programs, so why recreate their work (probably less good due to less time). Also, the programs have been written with several languages (nLite runs on .NET for example). I understand your goal is everyone starts writing in C. :/
  13. It should rely on other people's software (why recreate something?), but with the permission of those other people, of course. If it combines them with an easy-to-use GUI, it would rule. *awaits first screen or release* keep it up! edit: implement cdswitch
  14. Just put the WAVE-slider at the max, and then use the master-slider. Or does that not work?
  15. No switch as far as I know, try using an AutoIT script.
  16. @ totoymola: well, CDswitch 0.7 itself is basically done with the previous beta, I only have to change some small stuff. I still have to do alot for the parameter generator. The GUI I had in mind is done (which was the most work anyway), now I just have to add tooltips and the checking mechanism I implemented in CDswitch itself to avoid errors. Basic line is this; when I find some time, I'll continue. But when 0.7 is done, I can finally continue adding some new stuff (as far as it's possible). @akon: dunno why you asked in this topic, but consider it done.
  17. At the time I posted, the site wasn't updated yet.
  18. Not possible atm. The workaround would be to take a seperate batch and put the installer and the sleep in there. :/
  19. Hmm, you might want to create a new topic for this. The only help for you from CDswitch would be the log-feature or variable-feature, which detects all drive letters. Otherwise it can't help you.
  20. Only security fixes... I want 1.1!
  21. Latest builds, yes. Glazman fixed all Acid2 bugs in a week or so. edit; but cool to see Opera is rendering it as a smiley, nice progress.
