If anyone wants to test it out, they are welcome, I will get as much as possible churned out tonight, and hopefully have a fully working version in the morning.

Please post any ideas you would like me to implement into this programme that maybe useful. At the moment I am only supporting Windows XP SP2 Pro, I don’t know if it works on Home Edition, it should do, there may be just one or two of the tweaks that don't work.

Tasks at hand, if I didnt keep updating my Unattended DVD and Intergrate VS6 & SP6

1. Add MORE common registry tweaks (Open to surgestions)[inprogress]

2. Add error-handling capabilities

3. Add more advanced undo capabilities

4. Make alterations to logging system, RegDelete in particular [inprogress]

5. Move log to temp [DONE]

6. Add option to create log on the desktop instead of temp folder[DONE]

7. Add summary display when the app has finished[inprogress - Just added option,still no summary msgbox yet]

At present I have very little time other than weekend, I am deesigning a database and app to compile my program for me and will also enable tweak to be added via a web page :thumbup

Its ment for use in Unattended CD/DVD's, but it can be used to just speed up your PC and add extra controls to your PC

It doesnt have a GUI as it gets the options from a ini file called "cust_winnt.ini" the latest format of the *.ini file will be in my most recent update reply

I will be creating a GUI interface to create the ini file when I have the time as I do have a full time job aswell.

Like wise with my website, that tells you the latest updates and how-to's.....etc

I will take a look at it.

:) suggestion instead of having several post... I would compile all your description and objective into one. Much easier read. Typically your first post should hv all the info and the link. And the First post is what u would then edit/update.

just friendly advice... constructive not destructive advice.

Cheers good luck!!!

Well there is a... well good enough reason for me, that being no one else has been posting :blushing: the other post had just text that was no longer relevant, wanted to delete them, but can't :no:

I am going to start plans for v2.0 which will/should be compiled using a custom GUI that I may or may not have the capabilities to design and create

I have quite a few ideas as to what I want it to look like and what I want each part to do, its just putting it into code, I only know VB6 well and a little VB.NET, and even still I just don’t have the free time to do it :( But I will try and fit it in, some how :unsure:

There seems to be alot of people looking at this but not alot actualy downloading it :huh:

Whats the problem?

At the moment Build 5 is not planned build 5 will be v2 and will not be hand coded, another program will do it all for me :thumbup well thats the plan!

I will be creating a website that will have access to the database that the files are compiled from, and I may sugest your own tweaks to be added to the program, but this could be sometime off need to start typing up the designs for it and see what I can make!

who can tell me what the best way of storing the main functions for my program

Would it be in a database or a class saved to a file?

I want to have the option to select which tweaks make it thought to the builds as when I have the web page on my system to add yuor own tweaks it may end up being mighty cluttered

the latest version of my WinNT Tweaker is on its way, currently adding a few more tweaks that I miss out from the last release as I wanted it out and thought I would have had time to create my compiler for it, but haven't had time

This time I am going to update the new layout for cust_winnt.inf

Back soon
