Most often 3 command lines are more than enough. If you like the ATI software to show as seperate applications in the runonceex dialog, then you'd have to make each one a single program. so it's 6 times 1 command line.

as for the installation grouping by categories, that's a minor cosmetic issue. since we are working on unattended install, most people wouldn't even recognise that, cause they wouldn't sit in front of their machine just to admire the install process. unattended means you could do something more productive while a machine installs itself. but sure I understand your point. perhaps it will come in one of the next releases, but sorry - it's not the most important thing right now.

The only real problem I see with the idea of having a separate RunOnceEx window (other than hasi busting his hump to get the code for it) is that it could very well break the expect order of software to be installed. I don't have software install by order of category, I have it installed in order of when it really needs installed to meet the prerequisites of later applications/commands. Such as the need to install Firefox before any application that would need to install plugins (Flash/Shockwave, Office 2003, Acrobat, etc). But that doesn't necessarily mean that I want all my Internet Applications installing at the same time. I also try to separate things out by the how critical they are. Since I have a few applications that need .NET Framework installed, it must be one of the first things ran. I really do have to agree with hasi that it is fairly minor, and this is supposed to be "unattended".

if you want installation by category just follow the instructions below

open your generate.js in any editor and find this line

function CreateFile(arg) {

add this text directly above it

function SortByCat(a, b)
{
var x = a.cat;
var y = b.cat;
return ((x < y) ? -1 : ((x > y) ? 1 : 0));
}

then find this line

programs.sort(SortByCat);

and rem it out (this is if you want to change it back

and add this line

programs.sort(SortByCat);

so it will look like this

 //programs.sort(SortByOrdr);
 programs.sort(SortByCat);

If you want to change it back just take the two slashes off one line and add them to the other. Will sort out a variable in the config.js for this when i get a bit more time... singing Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat.....

This is only to sort it by category and not more that one installation window.

The sorting seems to be by category 'cat[pn]' then by program name 'prog[pn]'

so if you want a certain order make sure these two are labeled for this

wow, lots of stuff happening in this thread.

A couple of weeks (months?) ago I was the only one talking in here, and hasi was the only one answering... LOL

Anyways, this all looks awesome. Between the code fixes, and the customization screens, I am loving this tool.

My question, I guess, is directed at BritishBulldog, since you seem to be doing the 'cosmetic' part of this:

Any freeware WSYIWYG editors out there for customizing the hta file? (I don't have frontpage :( )
