  1. I currently have a 110mb flat file with a COBOL copybook. I need a program that will convert the flat file into a useable csv to import into a SQL DB. All I can find are really expensive programs that dont even work half the time, so I am looking for a windows/linux based program/script that is possibly free that will help me with this.
  2. An example to use with the WinRaR 3.2 silent install is mIRC. Install mIRC on the current machine, then rar the folder, and under options, check the "Create SFX archive". This makes sure that WinRaR is not required. Then, continue onto the advanced tab, and click the "SFX options..." button. From there, you can determine path, and files that need to be run after and before extraction, all under the General tab. Under the Advanced tab, you can tell it to create shortcuts for the desktop, start menu, and so on (multiple if wanted). It also gives you a prompt for file deletion. Continuing to Modes tab, there you can unpack the files to a temporary folder (if you have a silent install and want to organize and make file sizes smaller). There is also a section for Silent mode, which allows either "Display all", "Hide start dialog", or "Hide all". I recommend the "Hide start dialog" because it gives you a display of extracting files. The Text and icon tab allows you to change the name of the title to your program as well as change the icon, so it looks like an original installer for that program. As for modules, you should leave it on Default.SFX which gives all the advanced options. Hopefully this helps.
  3. Mirc Silent Install How?

    CLS @ECHO OFF cmdow @ /hid XCOPY %systemdrive%\install\system\mIRC %systemdrive%\Progra~1\mIRC\ /S /C /Q /H /Y MKDIR "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\mIRC" COPY "%systemdrive%\install\system\mIRC\mIRC.lnk" "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\mIRC\" REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\system\mIRC\register.reg EXIT Thats my mirc.cmd. Make sure you have the link in the folder (install the proggie first, then just copy the link from your startmenu), and I use a register.reg to register mirc 6.1. Also, edit the paths above to your setup. I currently have my installs under "$OEM$\$1\install\system\". Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\mIRC] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\mIRC\License] @="KEY" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\mIRC\UserName] @="USERNAME" Hopefully this helps.
  4. also, with that, it tends to split into multiple install based processes... what you need to do is add copy %systemdrive%\install\tools\sleep.exe %systemroot%\ start /wait %systemroot%\sleep.exe 120 make sure you download sleep.exe and place it in a dir of your setup so the cmd will pause and not continue until the 2 minutes are up (which will give enough time to fully install) Link to sleep (zipped)
  5. XP-ES v0.9 released

    btw, it requires mscomctl.ocx for the treeview. you might need to have a batch file before xpes that copies over mscomctl.ocx to the system32 folder...
  6. I am currently running an OpenBSD router with NAT and DHCP and whatnot. Right now, I have pf.conf configured for simple things. What I want to do is redirect a port on an internal server (port 5800) for vnc so I can access the vnc from outer locations. What I'm looking for is to route server1:5800 to router(externalip):80 for webserver based access. From there, I can use a simple dyndns and connect right to it. All I need is help with the command and whats possible. Thx
  7. Can someone please post a list and discription of all the hacked/hackable dll's, and when hacked, what will it change?
  8. ftp://www.thecpl.com/reforce.zip can someone find out where reforce places the updated refresh rates in the registry, so i can make a registry file to automatically set it? 60hz locked refresh rate is annoying
  9. XP Enhanced Setup Beta Test

    BTW, this program is fully compatible and programmable through the setup.ini file. Look in it for comments on various sections and whatnot.

    Maybe I should turn it into a driver only based selection. Then I can cut the code down, and maybe release a drivers.cab file that has all latest driver versions for most provided hardware via hardware sites or just microsoft update. Gimme your thaughts on this as well.
  11. that's exactly what it is used for. i understand that most people want all the programs, but say they have different hardware compared to the original machine, so maybe just turn my nifty program into a driver selection program, and load all lastest drivers for the most common known hardware (ati videocard drivers, nvidia videocard drivers, a few types of soundcard drivers, and what not..) ^^ this gives me an idea...

    neph, i might make an overall program that creates all possible files with ease, so creating an unattended xp cd will be as easy as checking email. right now im looking into methods of doing such, and any suggestions are welcome. this may include creating an image and burning it, but that might take a while
