hi,
since i started making my own update pack i realized that i could put some procedures like extracting and renaming of the updates into useful programs. so i did :D

Nice program, is this for automatic hotfix extraction for RyanVM's pack inclusion?

BTW, I don't like program's which don't settle in the Program Files dir:

Code: Select all

runwait("regedit /s install.reg")
DirCopy(@ScriptDir, "C:\Charmin's Tools\", 1)
change this to:

Code: Select all

runwait("regedit /s install.reg")
DirCopy(@ScriptDir, @ProgramsDir & "\Charmin's Tools\", 1)
:wink:

well, i use it for extracting the hotfixes i got from m$. rightclick on a hotfix (must have 'kb' and '.exe' in its name) and click on 'extract hotfix'. it's much faster than starting the installation and looking for the temp dir or navigating through dos and typing the /extract command manually. so it's something for everyone who wants to save a bit time :wink:

done :D

(new version up)
