  1. copy-protection

    you are not getting the point here ScubaSteve ... i'm not talking about accessing the contents of the cd,i'm talking about totally something else.... I don't want anybody to be able to copy the cd (make a copy) of my cd you are so true...but I'm not going to expose or distribute my project to the world but my friends sure will monitor and test what I'm creating .... I just don't want them to make copies of what I'm giving them to test...does that make a sense? any idea?

    hi Yzöwl: I appreciate your caring to help in this matter … ok if we assume that most people will use C:\ as their defaults then how could we manage those keys I've just pointed out? will I have tried the installer many times and in different machines, it's working totally great I was able to manage this key for the add-on's to be: "KEEP"="C:\\Documents and Settings\\All Users\\Application Data\\Webroot\\Washer" It worked like a charm, and I was wondering if there is something that we could do to get the path of TEMP, RECENT, HISTORY, COOKIES, CACHE assign to other users? Are you referring here like if I use %username% i.e. : C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\History Would have it to work for the new user? thanx,

    Hi all First of all I would like to thank each one of you for the great support and knowledge you guys delivered in the forum … Today I've finished integrating my last program #60 into my unattended cd which is window washer retail version, therefore I have decided to share it with whom ever interesting to have it … just pm me and I'll email it to you as soon as I get to your pm. No need for auto-it script or a switch or anything else it's a fully silent installer, created using InstallRite , but I have a small question about the registry to make it functions just the way it should. That's what I found in one of the entries: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Webroot\Window Washer\Paths] "WINDOWS"="C:\\WINDOWS" "SHARED"="C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Webroot Shared" "COOKIES"="C:\\Documents and Settings\\SHARAF\\Cookies" "CACHE"="C:\\Documents and Settings\\SHARAF\\Local Settings\\Temporary Internet Files" "HISTORY"="C:\\Documents and Settings\\SHARAF\\Local Settings\\History" "RECENT"="C:\\Documents and Settings\\SHARAF\\Recent" "TEMP"="C:\\DOCUME~1\\SHARAF\\LOCALS~1\\Temp" "AIM"="" "AOL"="" "ICQ"="" "MSN"="C:\\Program Files\\Messenger" "YHO"="" "FOX"="" "INSTALL"="C:\\Program Files\\Webroot\\Washer" "KEEP"="C:\\Documents and Settings\\SHARAF\\Application Data\\Webroot\\Washer" In these entries you can realize that's SHARAF is the account name created know, and most of these keys are aiming to SHARAF's Documents and Settings , WILL SO, THAT MEANS I HAVE TO CREATE AN ACCOUNT CALLED SHARAF DURING MY UNATTENDED INSTALLATION TO ASSIGN THESE ENTRIES TO IT. So how can I make these entries works for any user created during the unattended installation not just SHARAF? I tried using %AllUsersProfile% but didn't work i.e. : "CACHE"="%AllUsersProfile% \\Local Settings\\Temporary Internet Files" .... any idea?

  11. billboard is so stubborn

    @spazmire11 Hi there , but how i'm gonna be able to use my billboard then ... i'ts to change the whole process to a classic style so whats the point? in my normal installation xplode will starts in T-9 and i need the resolution to change before that time not after,,, maybe if there is a way to install the vga driver before the first boot and then i place the batch at the start of T-39....can i do that? or is there a way for that? my driver is Gforce 6800GT
  12. billboard is so stubborn

    Hi TD I appreciate your respond indeed: Well I used WinntbbuED.exe to build my billboard for the flexibility and the ease it provides, so I don't think that I would need to do anything with the size of the wallpaper because the original resolution of the wallpaper is already 1024x768, and it should resize automatically with the screen ....that's why I'm going insane I don't know if I should just deal with 640x480 and redesign my xplode to fit there or wait for some nice smart buddy to help help
  13. Make your XP sound like Windows Vista!

    very welcome
  14. Hi everyone I apologize if this posted before I mean I have searched for 9 days using every possible search method with no luck or straight forward clue of how to solve this, and now I'm on the verge of going insane trying to solve this problem for weeks. Look at the screenshot and feed me back if you know how to make the billboard picture resize to 1024x768 or to 800x600 regardless of the stage the batch will kick in. I have succeeded of integrating my drivers using method 2, and also went great with nlite RC7 … but still I get the same result "the screen respond to the batch but the billboard remains at the ugliest resolution in the world 640x480". The code I'm using @echo off 1365VidChng.exe 800X600X32@1 -q 1365VidChng.exe 800X600X32@85 -q 1365VidChng.exe 800X600X32@70 -q 1365VidChng.exe 800X600X32@60 -q 1365VidChng.exe 1024X768X32@1 -q 1365VidChng.exe 1024X768X32@85 -q 1365VidChng.exe 1024X768X32@70 -q 1365VidChng.exe 1024X768X32@60 -q EXIT Have you ever succeeded doing the billboard working on higher resolution in real PC OR Virtual Machine is it possible or do I have to redesign my billboard down to 640x480 to fit ok with xplode,because I'm using xplode to integrate 50 software. remember the batch is kicking but the billboard is so stubborn.....help thanx
