[HELP] And I'll help you

Post by Nightwolf81 » Sun Nov 12, 2006 8:31 am

I am working on a addon that'll allow you to change the background while Bashrat has the UGLY BLACK SCREEN (for ages) while the 7z unpack and . . .
I need a way to modify hivedef.inf

Line 292 (Mostly but not always)

HKCU,"Control Panel\Desktop","Wallpaper",0x00000000,"%SystemRoot%\System32\InstDvr.bmp"
HKCU,"Control Panel\Desktop","WallpaperStyle",0x00000000,"0"
HKCU,"Control Panel\Desktop","OriginalWallpaper",0x00000000,"%SystemRoot%\System32\InstDvr.bmp"
HKCU,"Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\General","BackupWallpaper",0x00020000,"%SystemRoot%\System32\InstDvr.bmp"
HKCU,"Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\LastTheme","Wallpaper",0x00000000,"%SystemRoot%\System32\InstDvr.bmp"

so the default wallpaper's are 'InstDvr.bmp' and not "" or "%None%"

The above entries work (but it's annoying not having it do this Manually)

I've tried to figure out how the whole file edit stuff works but I don't know how to replace lines I need with these modified ones (as they do move around. . . But they are always the same until edited manually)?

I'd like some one experianced to show me this little technique as I have other projects I need to release but I can't cause they require manual editing of system files or inf etc!!

:)

p.s. I don't want no links to help I want direct help with this please.
