Win10 / Re: ShutdownPE
« on: March 09, 2017, 12:22:22 PM »
Pecmd hooks in automatically. It uses the normal restart and shutdown options on the start menu.

So does ShutdownPE. Whats your point?

This thread is about a user wanting the additional features of ShutdownPE.

PEcmd does not:
  • give the option to eject cd/media on shutdown/reboot. Something the OP desires
  • allow you to lock the screen
  • perform a safe shutdown after flushing all buffers to disk
  • allow you to run a user defined program or script before shutdown/restart
All things ShutdowPE does.

When trying to attach a file to a PM I get the following error when sending the message

The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved.

The send fails and I get the message regardless of whether I have checked "Save a copy in my inbox"

LiveSystem pro / Getting started questions
« on: February 20, 2017, 09:40:28 AM »
Please excuse me if these questions have already been answered somewhere. I'm a native English speaker so the German forums are hard to follow sometimes.

A few questions as I'm experimenting with LSP.

  • Is there planned support for attachments/embedded files?
  • Are feature requests/fixes/but submission welcome and if so where should they be posted
  • What is the dev process for LSP? is it just kare in his freetime or is it a collaborative effort?
  • Projects have both a and Project.cfg - The 2 files are nearly identical but the editor only opens what is the purpose of Project.cfg?

Thanks :)

As far as I remember this command does not exist anymore, as the progress bar is always shown.

ok that would make sense then. I saw it in a few scripts when I was poking around and wondered if it had anything to do with redirecting progress from an external application.
can you tell me why the progress bar changes colors from green to yellow?

appears to be undocumented. Its missing from the English pdf in the 1st post and also from the LSP help file.

found it. pretty sure this was the GA release. let me know if something is borked. I dusted off the code and have been tinkering with getting kb controls (tab/enter) working for v1.6. something I have wanted since forever but MS has made difficult with icon controls.

looks neat. interesting that you chose purebasic.

can you please dial back on the transparency a bit? its quite distracting on my "busy" (n. see messy :) ) desktop.

its good to be back! :)
I changed jobs a few years ago so it cut into my developing time considerably lol and I was married this last Feb so my wife demands my time as well!

my old wb subdomain and download  is acting up so give me a bit to dig up the last published script (plugin for lancelot :) or compile a new one.

nice to see you still around :)

ShutdownPE was never updated to work with Windows 8/10, so I would not recommend using it.
Not true. ShutdownPE was updated for Win 8.1. the latest release is 1.5.x and was posted back in Jan of 2015 script version is .17
I do not know why chrisR continued to use the old 1.4.x version. He never reported any issues on the 1.5 beta. as far as I am aware there are no outstanding issues with 1.5.x

as far as I remember ShutdownPE was created to be sure hd was first flush than shutdown. And a nice menu for shutdown.
( Later more integrated ...)

ShutdownPE was originally written for and was the fist GUI for Win7PE. Before shutdownPE the only way to shutdown/reboot was to create shortcuts directly to winpeutil.exe and there was no way to eject CD's
ShutdownPE fulfilled this need and added the additional safety of flushing file-buffers and the option to run additional programs before shutdown (ie unmount, save logs, etc)
a bit later if added integration into the start menu shutdown/reboot options (which were previously non-functional) so the start menu was usable and had the benefit of flushing buffers, running scripts, ejecting cd's etc.

Win7PE SE HomePage / Re: Script has no certification
« on: January 28, 2017, 06:40:48 AM »
And Homes32 , we change name to plugins it is much more accurate name than script
 and also it splits very old than new, old script not supported by us, we use and develop plugins on projects

So Homes32 , use plugins terminology around here.  :cool:

well I may have to respectfully disagree on the "more accurate name" point. espically when the builder itself consistently refers to them as script (even in file extension). if that was the case we should call them "instruction-sets-that-sometims-included-encoded-binary-executables"  :tongue: :w00t:
in any case it really doesn't matter what you call them, the function is the same and I'm getting off topic lol.

As far as I read, it was also used to avoid anyone use winbuilder ! nice for a "free" project,
 Good to see AutoIT development did not do such thing....  :wink:
afraid i'm not sure what your talking about here. nothing stops anyone from removing the certification and wb certainly doesn't refuse to process a script that isn't "certified"

my point with the certification not fully realized was mainly the fact that it was so easy to disregard. I still have my copy of my signature file and the certify.exe and used to certify all my scripts only to see the signature stripped out *EVERY TIME* someone added my script to their project. Since I developed mainly core scripts and applications (such as VisualC++/ShutdownPE/etc)  it made the process pretty worthless. The only thing it was really good for was if a user wanted to "feel good" that they had the original released version or if a project developer wanted to say "I refuse to help you unless all your scripts are certified in the original form"

Its good to see you again old friend.

the message can be safely ignored and as lancelot said, if you don't turn on certain debug options they won't show in the log.

The original idea behind the certification process was to give project developers a way to digitally sign (the actual implementation is actually just a salted checksum of the contents of the script file excluding certain sections) their scripts so it was easy for them to tell if someone modified them and ease support. (a large portion on the time the issues were caused by either the user modifying the script code and having trouble or another project adopting the script, modifying it and the user thinking it was the original authors problem)
the certification was never really finished to completion although the checksum did work and was not widely adopted due to disagreements on how/who to distribute "keys" to among other issues. That coupled with the fact that due to the open nature of the script files a user could just delete the 2 lines that contained the certification verification data and invalidate anyways the only real use was for the developer to say "not signed by me I'm not supporting it" which wasn't in any of our blood.


Win8.1 SE HomePage / Re: Odd Clearlock Issue
« on: August 26, 2014, 04:51:08 AM »
I'll see if I can find anything out. It may take me a little while because my time is limited at the moment with projects at work and the code needs a fair amount of updating to compile with the latest autoit with official Win8.1 support.


Great tool.

I am sitting behind a proxy and i want to know if there is any parameter to use a proxy with the waik tools ?

Regards Silvia

Hi Silvia,

this tool uses the WinHTTP library for the download functions if you have not configured it to use CURL.
as such if you are running Win Vista/7/8 you can use the following built-in command to configure a proxy.

enter the windows command prompt (Win+R > cmd.exe [enter]) and use the following command substituting "myproxy" with the FQDN or IP address of your proxy. see for more examples and additional syntax.

Code: [Select]
netsh winhttp set proxy myproxy

cheers!  :great:

Win7PE SE HomePage / Re: Builder?
« on: June 17, 2014, 05:46:58 AM »
Just curious about the SE and logic behind using the same name?

see JFX response below.

here ya go.
didn't test just grabbed fro svn and build.
also compiled with latest MPRESS that fixes x64 Windows 8 issues.

can you give me an example of the message you are getting and don't want to see?

This program is cool. ImageX not always working (mounting) good in win7pe. Cool replace!
But i think it would be nice to have WimUtil /mount ... /NoWarn option too.
Please, do this....  :embarrassed:
do you mean you would like wimutil to fail silently without displaying an error message?

great work!  :thumbsup:

a small cosmetic thing: for the unpack progress/message the percent done is above the progress bar in bold and the description txt below. should probably be switched around to be consistent.

Removed OnTop flag an tray icon, the window should be movable actually.
you would need to set a bitwise 16 on ProgressOn() to make the window moveable. or 18 for moveable & not on top. I didn't do this on my version of the download UI.

personally I like the always on top as it will stay above the winbuilder window. It would be nice to be able move it but it probably isn't a big deal since with today's internet connections and small size the download shouldn't take  more than a minute or 2.

additionally, for automated usage it might be nice to specify a download location via command line.

Research and questions / Re: Question about ShellExecute & 7z
« on: May 21, 2012, 05:26:48 AM »
you can't use 7zip to unpack encoded files directly. you must first extract the archive from the script before you can unpack it with 7zip.

Code: [Select]
If,ExistFile,%Tools%\%SysType%\7z.exe,ShellExecute,Hide,%Tools%\%SysType%\7z.exe,"e -y #$q#$pGlobalTemp#$p\localization.7z#$q %WhichLang%.xml -o#$q%ProgramFolder%#$q"
