Yet again you always seem to think, this forum is all about you..

The horseman is ready if needed :shhh:

I am The Horseman  :horse:  :wink:
.....

Okey I will check Aomei plugins around when I find a wide time,
Since not responded, I assume Acronis TI plugin on Gena server is okey , and new SumatraPDF plugin on Gena server is okey..

Aomei was not my big interest so far, and with limited time it is not easy to follow changes on such plugins.

within limited time, we can only respond quickly to small fixes
http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=1412.0
and respond to posts on topics..

Everybody have limited time,
 there are topics we don't get respond, there are topics we can't respond  :great:

We are not a company, well it would be nice if we 4 work at MS spending time on this nice hobby as a job  :lol:


See You
:turtle:

Since not responded, I assume Acronis TI plugin on Gena server is okey , and new SumatraPDF plugin on Gena server is okey..

I use SumatraPDF v3.1 as on win10 server _ I assume SumatraPDF 3.0 is on Gena is NOT the Mark Modified Version and was working well also on x86 and x64 builds (except Win10 x64)..

I difference between SumatraPDF 3.0 and SumatraPDF 3.1 is - 3.0 is 32bit on x64 system vs 3.1 is 64bit on x64 system...
So if my sumatraPDF 3.1 is on Gena - can't foresee issue

As far as Acronis TI - I have not used Gena version although my plugin was taken from it and others (there where many)... I believe you follow Mark and I chose not to because of confusion..
Mine have one major difference = only need BartPE to make fully functional 2015/2016 x64..

As I see it - I only need one working x86 version and one working x64 version.. Or one script each program.. These combo type plugins do not offer good choice do to regvalue and setup file rquirements..
If I have host version CCC and need version AAA in PE - what good is host version ?? same as If CCC is update to AAA - what is the need for AAA version ?
Unless you need AAA for x86 build and CCC for x64 build...

Aomie backupper professional had a revision as of yesterday and posted this morning..
Aomie Partition Assistant Professional

The biggest issue I see you facing is revision numbers as they get increased and edited offen by Mark, so posting mine will result in a conflict of interest..

Should I create a Topic with my plugin revisions ??

You should not assume  :wink:
and such assumptions cause unwanted confisions  :wink:

As far as Acronis TI - I have not used Gena version although my plugin was taken from it and others (there where many)... I believe you follow Mark and I chose not to because of confusion..
Mine have one major difference = only need BartPE to make fully functional 2015/2016 x64..
I follow Mark only at TI 2016 plugin since Mark followed updating existing plugin,
sadly Mark recreates plugins and I don't have time to check... You seemed to have time ;) anyway life goes ....

****
Apps plugins are shared between projects, nothing special to Gena or SE,

only difference is, about Project Admin Personal Preferences,

I prefer adding TI plugin to Gena server, Chris don't, that is all  :thumbsup:

Adding a plugin to server give us ability to update in time following end user feedback,
plugins only on topics, will get old in time (still useful, they give inspirations to create a new updated plugin with new ideas. :thumbsup: ),
I am updating Acronis TI plugins since I guess TI 9.5, and personally I don't use any Acronis on my computers  :cool:

The biggest issue I see you facing is revision numbers as they get increased and edited offen by Mark, so posting mine will result in a conflict of interest..

there is only 2 official plugins that have revision numbers ;) and only 1 increases (other same for years now ;))
one of the reason of this 2 special case is, current builder don't have major,minor,sub,subsub version scheme like %90 of softwares on internet,
I could recently find time to workaround this problem this summer, and Chris and Galapo will slowly adopt in time  :great:

Problem is:
When end user rewrites a plugin by copy-paste history notes, ex: Prz42/Mark , it is not easy to follow changes, since we do not have big free time...
When end user reconstruct a plugin from an ancient initial version, it is not easy to follow changes, since we do not have big free time...


When end user feedback about a current plugin about some points/lines, it is easy to follow for server admins (Chris, Lancelot, Galapo)
else, on my side "Winmerge" (and chris BCompare ;)) says there are lots of changes on plugin other than the one written in history notes,
we have life, family and job, we postpone (sometimes forget).... We have things that takes attention to our interest more than supporting plugins on our free hobby time  ;)





Well it is natural one like to re create a plugin  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
ex:
You could change current TI plugin to "only x64" plugin, by reading and understanding previous adjustments,
instead it was easier for you to re create a new plugin since following another coder logic is not easy   :thumbsup:
from this point:
Don't expect us to catch your code logic quickly  :cool:


***
Yes we can create seperate plugins to x86 - x64 ,
it is a matter of choice  :thumbsup:

I guess logic behind your argument is,
creating x86/x64 plugins becomes too complex for complicated plugins,
which I agree to this logic.

Since Acronis now provides only x64, we can end current plugin on Gena server which support many older versions,

and continue with your "TI 2015/2016 only x64" plugins, which we can put our experience from other plugin in time
(I already made some adjustments, written on other topic ;))


Well, life goes, as you see we tend to clean confusions, slowly slowly with available time

Hi Prz42,

I moved topic to "Plugin" section,
and topic title to "SumatraPDF by Prz42"

update your first post with your latest plugin,
ex: SumatraPDF_Prz42.Script  :wink:




And
Some notes about your plugin:

*
Line 75 77 is wrong for latest Sumatra
Code: [Select]
If,%SourceArch%,Equal,x64,If,Not,%OSFamily%,Equal,NT5,Begin
  If,%Forcex64_CheckBox%,Equal,True,Run,%ScriptFile%,PluginSetx64
End
-->
Code: [Select]
If,%SourceArch%,Equal,x64,Begin
  If,%Forcex64_CheckBox%,Equal,True,Run,%ScriptFile%,PluginSetx64
End

See latest Sumatra plugin history note on servers, History043=.....
\Downloads\AppYGS\Supplementary\Office\"SumatraPDF - Plugin Download"


ps: In addition, no need %Forcex64_CheckBox% ...






*
No need
[Download_Files] and [Download_Files_Wget] sections anymore,
we now have
Call,Download
available...
http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=45.0
Call,Download,[Folder\|DownloadFile],[Web]

not tested I guess
Code: [Select]
Run,%ScriptFile%,Download_Files,%ProvideFiles%,%SetupFile%,%SetupURL%,NoExit
-->
Code: [Select]
Call,Download,%ProvideFiles%\%SetupFile%,%SetupURL%
