Post by maniaq » Mon Apr 10, 2006 9:38 am

Code: Select all

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sizer]
"ShowTrayIcon"=dword:00000001
"ShowTooltip"=dword:00000000
"GridSize"=dword:0000000a
"AddToSystemMenu"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sizer\Menu]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sizer\Menu\000]
"Description"="atomix"
"Width"=dword:00000316
"Height"=dword:00000190
"NoResize"=dword:00000000
"Relocate"=dword:00000000

I know it's not perfect, but I have been using WillyPad a lot lately to convert reg files to inf files, thanks to Kel and Boooggy for the tuition ;)

It has a tool called "Import REG File" which I couldn't have made many of my recent addon packs without.

There's other tools peeps here use, but WillyPad is more user friendly for a reg-newbie like me.

Gluck :)

And you need to go over Willypad results very carefully. It doesn't always convert things properly.

Yes, LOL that's why I say it's not perfect. Mostly it seems to mess up when copying a root reg entry that has a lot of sub-entries and especially if they have long number strings in them. Also it doesn't convert reg strings to decimal, which is a bummer.

So like RogueSpear says, you really do need to go over them carefully and test them out thoroughly on your system before you release them in an addon pack here. ;)
