CDA - Classic Desktop Adventures - AddOn Pack builder 0.5.1 - CNC

This builder will download the latest version of some usefull tools and automatically create an AddOn 7z file that can be used with the RyanVM Integrator to integrate these tools into your Windows source.
I never use desktop theme that slow your computer or disturb you from what you do because of nice colors and effects. I allways prefer a simple classic theme, but the bright color are not really good to keep computing all over the night. So I prefer use a dark classic theme like the OneFlag theme in black. I also add some really usefull tools that you will not found in the others packs and some desktop tweaks to complete the deal !

How to run: extract the buider from the archive, double-click on it, and follow the instructions...(the FGCBA error during building is normal, as I use some files after a batch processing during RVM integration, this files will only be avaliable after integration. I use FGCBA in order to auto rename the files and to build the CAB

files...)

I was thinking about trying this addon for my audio.production setup as minimal system resources used = better... but it is giving me a few errors

1. after downloading all files it gives me this error:
!! - EMPTY FOLDER ERROR - !!
!- The folder used by the Builder is empty, or a file is missing
or the file name is not conforming to the naming sheme.
Please check all files in C:\xptemp\7zS13.tmp
and:
press [M] when done
or
[D]ownload, to download alll the file.
or
E[x]it

2. if I manually double click the "start.cmd" and then choose the option, already have files [F] it brings me to the part where it tells you what the filenames should be so I checked the "Download" folder and apperently it isn't downloading imgburn I get this file instead "getdownload.php@sid=470"

any ideas?

EDIT1: Ok, so I manually downloaded imgburn and placed it in the "Download" folder and deleted that "getdownload.php@sid=470" file and the addon builder seemed to go through everything fine, but when it got to the cleanup part I hit [n] to delete the downloaded files, and it seemed to finish doing its thing... but now I can't find the addon... where does it get saved to?

EDIT2: never mind... I'm a blind idiot... haha...

Thanks benjamminzIS, in fact when a URL include 2 "=", the echo command didn't work as it should.

The Builder is now corrected and have been reuploaded.

Hey no problem, thanks for what is sure to be a great addon for my audio.production rig... I'm glad that all problems were just that one thing and not multiple things like I was thinking when I first wrote about it. Glad it was an easy fix for you! Will report back once I have a source built and tested and live installed! (busy, so prolly in a week or so)

OK benjamminzIS, thanks for your feedback.

More information about the error : start.cmd build the file CDAJSPD_DOWNLOAD.txt, this file is used by wget to download the files. The file is build using the "echo" command. And in the URL I have selected, there is twice a an equal sign, and echo didn't support it... So I fix it by removing the file generation and include the file in the builder.
