Hey benners,

Nice work friend. Keep it going. AutoIt I suppose?

Cheers ;)

Cheers M8. Yep, AutoIt. Looks like we are both branching out, I have seen your Nero Lite :thumbup Our progs must work well judging by the number of views\d/l and the number of replies the threads get.

I agree. We are still the team. If you need some help, just PM me. I'll do the same if needed. :D

Cheers ;)

Hey m8 ive had a thought.. this version of WLM needs Silverlight v2 installed before it will work now the current installer doesn't include this so wud it be possible to include the Silverlight v2 installer as well with this? I have the stand alone installer file for Silverlight v2 if you want it?

http://rapidshare.com/files/196416198/Silverlight_v2.exe

I've installed it and used it without Silverlight and haven't had any problems. Is there some were saying it is needed. As far as I know Silverlight is MS answer to Flash and it's for programming web apps\browser plugins for animation and such. The full version download has the Silverlight exe in it, it is not added as only msi's are added to the list. If it is needed I can add exe's as well and Silverlight can use the /q switch but you would need the 134MB d/l of the WLM

Ahh reet m8 ok no worries, the full version (134mb) says it needs Silverlight due to the video call stuff (i think?) anyay thanks for the info I install Silverlight in my system through the WPI (along with everything else) so no worries.

Stoner81.

PS - Got the latest version (Build 4)! thanks m8!

Hi there :hello:

just downloaded your tool and wanted to test it but i am getting this error in the "log" tab:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Program Initialising Running --------->
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Searching for .cache folder: C:\Programme\Common Files\Windows Live\.cache
########## <ERROR #1> .cache folder was not found <ERROR #1> ##########

i am on a german version of xp and my "Common Files" folder is called "Gemeinsame Dateien":

C:\Programme\Gemeinsame Dateien\Windows Live\.cache

could you please change your tool from: "%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Windows Live\"

to: "%CommonProgramFiles%\Windows Live\" which points to the proper folder :rolleyes:

thanks in advance

BigRandalo

btw: there is also a newer version of 7-zip out there

Thanks BigRandalo, it's sorted now. I know about 7zip, I normally wait a week or so to see if there are any probs with the latest version. I have added it to this release.

First post update with build 5.

Does the files exist?. If not I will have to add a check for the files before loading the list.

After selecting the patched files, the start button is grey and i cant click it.

And the get me out button same thing, i have to close the process to close the wlm creator.

Extra tweaks are also not working.

Running Dutch WLM 9 on Vista x64 SP1

And : · Found - The selected patch program's specific registry entries were found in the users registry but a problem occurred when trying to export them to the temp folder.

It says "found" at my end.

Yes the files do exist in separate maps with really long names such as "b6a186061c97e6d"

Does that give you a clue?

Found the problem: dw20shared.msi was missing in the .cache map. Found the file in a temp folder elsewhere.

Then I made an extra map according to the ini file and placed the dw20shared.msi in there and now it works great!

Thanks for the good work Benners!

It could be. I have only tested this on 32bit Windows ( I can't really support 64bit). I tried to use Virtualbox to create a 64bit VM on the 32bit system, I think it is supposed to be allowed, but when the setup process finishes loading all the drivers my machine always reboots, so I ditched that. I use reg.exe to export the reg file as it is quicker, but this could be changed, and I am not sure whether reg.exe works on 64bit. As for the buttons, again I am unsure, it could be the 64bit. Does the red cross at the top of the GUI not close the program?.

Can anybody else confirm that this prog is useless on 64bit?

Glad it's sorted. I have added a file check on the msi's as they are added to the list. If the missing MSI is a required one the process will stop. If it is an optional one then the list will load, the missing MSI will not be added and an error will be logged.
