Hi again,

So I have decided to just run 1 window and all seems to be fine with v1.6, one thing I notice once finished installing all applications the computer restarts, with normal RunOnceEx it does not, how can I change this ?

I would also like to know about uninstalling once finished with RunOnceEx

Thank you.

Hmm, I think it would be safe to say something is up, rubysoftware has not been here since 14th February 2008, maybe hes sick or just abandoning this project.

Anyone who wants I can upload v1.6 ( latest )

It also seems I may have to drop this custom RunOnceEx unless I can fix the problem...grrrr

Hello,

A little late, I actually just started cleaning my old unattended collection and the lastest must have gotten deleted.

This is what I have

1. RunOnceEx.exe ( unknown version, may be 1.6 )

2. RunOnceEx 1.4.exe

3. RunOnceEx 1.5.exe

4. RunOnceExScriptCreator.exe

I have put those into a rar archive and you can download here = RubySoftware-all.rar

This is abandoned software, I was once given a very good suggestion, instead of this use WPI ( Windows Post Install ) by kel, which is supported at MSFN and WinCert.net, it will do what RunOnceEx can do + a heck of a lot more and is much more customizable.

Just my 2 cent

Hello,

I have created an application which can be used as an alternative for the Windows default RunOnceEx. It works almost the same, and by default, it looks like this...

RunOnceEx.png

...but you can customize every text and every image. You can even set the text font!

It's pretty easy to let it look a little 'older':

RunOnceEx_old.png

Or to let it look more like Windows XP:

RunOnceEx_XP.png

Download installer (Version 1.6, Jan 24, 2008)

(To run it silent: RunOnceEx.exe /verysilent)

NOTE: If the installer runs silent, it automatically begins installing your applications (if you have added any; see below).

VERSION HISTORY

Version 1.6 (Build 31)

- Removed auto-adding of Registry values for debugging.

Version 1.5 (Build 30)

- Fixed issue which occured when using multiple windows

- Added a so called 'Easer Egg'....... :sneaky:

Version 1.4 (Build 25)

- Bug fix

Version 1.3 (Build 22)

- Added support for multiple RunOnceEx windows

Version 1.2 (Build 18)

- Added some new icons: $VISTA5-8, $XP3-7

Version 1.1 (Build 14)

- Vista fix

- Fix in recreating RunOnce values

Version 1.0 (Build 10)

- First public release

USAGE

Just like RunOnceEx, but all entry's must be stored in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Ruby Software\RunOnceEx, not in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx!

To use multiple RunOnceEx windows (e.g. for multiple groups of applications), store the properties of the secound window in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Ruby Software\RunOnceEx2, the third in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Ruby Software\RunOnceEx3...

Example RunOnceEx.cmd file:

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

SET KEY="HKLM\SOFTWARE\Ruby Software\RunOnceEx"

REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Applications" /f

REG ADD %KEY% /V TEXT /D "Please wait while Windows installs the following applications:" /f

REG ADD %KEY% /V PNG /D "$OLD" /f

REG ADD %KEY% /V PNG_arrow /D "$OLD" /f

REG ADD %KEY% /V PNG_success /D "$NONE" /f

REG ADD %KEY% /V FONT /D "MS Sans Serif" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "Adobe Reader 6" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\AdobeReader6\AR6.msi /qn" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\010 /VE /D "Alcohol 120" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\alcohol\setup.exe /qn" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\010 /V 2 /D "REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\alcohol\register.reg" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\015 /VE /D "Diskeeper 8" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\015 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\DiskeeperPro_8.0.459.exe /s /v/qn" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\050 /VE /D "Importing Registry Tweaks" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 1 /D "REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\regtweaks.reg" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\055 /VE /D "Cleaning Up and Rebooting" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\055 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\cleanup.cmd" /f

EXIT

The italic part adds the installer of my RunOnceEx application to the RunOnce key. If you forget this, it will not work!

Added registry entry's:

TEXT: The text above the list of applications. Default: Please wait while Windows installs...

FONT: The text font.

PNG: The installation icon. Value can be a path to a PNG image (e.g. %systemdrive%\installer.png, best use a size between 32x32 and 48x48), or one of the following constants (italic constants are added in version 1.2):

constants1.png

PNG_arrow: The arrow icon. Value can be a path to a PNG image (best use a size of 16x16 or less) or one of the following constants:

constants2.png

PNG_success: The success icon. Value can be a path to a PNG image (best use a size of 16x16 or less) or one of the following constants:

constants3.png

Download list of constants as Word Document

I HOPE YOU LIKE IT!

Could you please fix your links? I would like to test it out.
