No you shouldn't, this would break compatibility with older programs although it does offer a small speedup in performance... Anyway, this isn't related to FGCBA or this thread at all...

FGCBA checks for 8.3 compliance for a reason which is maintaining compatibility with those who install from DOS or those who install over a network share (winnt32.exe / winnt.exe), so I have not (and will probably not) implemented a way to disable the warning for it.

Q: Would it be possible, if the INF is not installing items from a CAB file, to supress warnings about [SourceDisksNames.x86] even if (for some wacky reason) the addon in question is being inf installed and uses CopyFile=, [SourceDisksNames] and [DestinationDirs]?

Alot of the shellextension addons are an INF with regkeys and a single dll. While I can ignore the warning, it might be better to supress it and only us it if installation from INF requires acquiring the files from a CAB, this way people will actually know it's something to pay attention to, rather than ignore.

@ricktendo64: Sorry looks like I miscomprehended your last post. Anyway the decision is not to check for 8.3 compliance on SVCPACK switchless installers.

@Zacam, Ok, no warnings about [SourceDisksNames.x86] will be displayed when [SourceDisksNames] exists and processing of this part will be skipped if CopyFiles directive does not exist.

Version 0.86 is now up ;)

I have implemented Zacam's suggestions and fixed the bug that Aserone reported (thanks both of you!)...

- FGCBA will not warn about missing [SourceDisksNames] and/or [SourceDisksNames.x86] section(s) if CopyFiles directive is not found, but it will be logged (/log:LogFile.txt).

- Fixed bug where LargeListDictionary was returning data without removing extra whitespaces.

* Known issues with this release (and they've been in all previous versions):
1. Removal addons will cause a fatal error because its entries.ini file only contains an ExtraFileEdits section and one or more [obsolete_*] sections....

Comment: I can't know if this is intentional or mistaken, so I assume mistaken.
However i DO check for the no. of poles before the error occurs.

2. I have discovered that the INF will install even if it doesn't have a [SourceDisksFiles] section, in such case Windows looks in the folder that contains the INF. It will also allow installation of INFs without a [DestinationDirs], in such case the Destination folder in %WinDir%\SYSTEM32.

Comment: These scenarios are not supported yet.
(They will be in the next version hopefully but need a major logic re-write.)

And as always, keep the feedback coming ! ;)

Version 0.89 beta

Post by n7Epsilon » Tue Jul 04, 2006 10:11 pm

Version: 0.89 Beta

I've posted this new version as a beta first because of a whole lot of changes inside ;) (and because I may not be available for the next week to continue working on this)

- Download link:
http://rapidshare.de/files/24970987/FGCBA.ZIP.html
md5: E317B7E618242CE7AD42DD974587D45A

- Changelog:
1. Complete rewrite of ArgumentParser (v2) so it is now much smarter in handling command line parameters, now parameters can be in any order, so this: fgcba /build:New.7z "ENTRIES_Everest.INI" /log:.\New.txt will now work correctly.

2. Support for 7-zip format (but now depends on 7za.exe, FGCBA will check for it if an operation requires it) in addition to CAB format.

3. Fixed a bug in unassigned variable checking where '-' character wasn't recognized as a valid character in a variable name leading to unassigned variable errors.

4. Syntax checks for [HexEdit] / [FileCopy] / [FileMove] / [DirCopy] / [DirMove] / [FileDelete] / [DirDelete] / [RunFile]

5. Files specified in RunFile are automatically checked for existence and added to the addon archive (cab or 7z)

6. Argument Switch change: /CAB is now /BUILD

7. FGCBA will always assume the addon output archive is 7-zip unless the specified output file in /BUILD has a .CAB extension.

8. No warnings about missing [txtsetup_files] or [dosnet_files] will be displayed if the addon has a [HexEdit] section but they will still be checked if present.

- New Dependency: 7za.exe from 7-Zip.
- Dependency location: http://www.7-zip.org

- Next beta: (or final ;))
1. Support ZIP and RAR
2. Automatic output archive name generation by examining the title and version keys of the [general] section in the entries.ini file.

Phew, integrator enhancements coming in too fast... :lol:

Enjoy ;) Keep the feedback coming :)
I've tested with a lot of addons without problems, but if anyone has problems please report here :)

Not really sure, this program is a freakish hybrid between a builder and a syntax checker...

Can you suggest something ?

That's a very nice icon, I'll use this since it mostly depicts the purpose of this program.

Thanks a lot Kelsenellenelvian ! I will incorporate this in the next release.

Probably today if no further problems arise, tomorrow if I encounter any issues.
All that's changed from the last beta is the new icon and the ability to run it with a folder as the entries.ini parameter (in which case it will scan the folder for the 1st entries file found and process it normally).

K great I will keep updated with your final releases.

I think it is best to leave the beta versions out of this kinda addon.

I found a minor issue in this inf file I have a uninstall section that refers to the section "CopyRegShot" and this section is also refered to in the install sections. Now this inf works fine like it is and is pretty clean but the FGCBA tells me there is 6 errors because the copyfile section refers to these 6 files twice.

Download it here = www.wpiw.net/downloads/UberPack.rar

Actually, this:
FGCBA wrote: !- 1 error(s):
- Section [RegShotLNK] referenced in [DestinationDirs]
does not exist in UberPack.inf!
!- 1 error(s).
is what's making it stop.

Warnings are more like informational text or maybe like be careful about this... or just letting you know...etc., for legit entries that might be mistakes, but FGCBA will continue normally despite them.

btw, you are getting these warnings because there are 2 [DestinationDirs] sections in which CopyRegshot is defined twice, so it is getting processed twice and the file refcount table indicates referencing the files contained in this section more than once, hence these warnings.

Errors, are somethings that are definitely broken and hence should be fixed, though....

Post by n7Epsilon » Sat Sep 02, 2006 6:33 pm

There are some syntax styles I cannot understand, like for example these in txtsetup.sif:
usbport.sys = 100,,,,,,4_,4,1,3,,1,4
ndistapi.sys = 1,,,,,,,4,0,0,,1,4
For some of the drivers.

What do all the extra commas and numbers mean ?
There's nowhere I've searched that has a complete explanation for it.

The reason is that I want FGCBA to very deeply inspect the txtsetup syntax, the current regex i am using:

Code: Select all

\A(?!;)(?<ShortName>[^;]*)\s*=\s*\d+,,,,,,(?<DoNotCompressOrSourceDisksNamesEntry>(_x)?|_?\d+_?),(?<Location>\d*),[0-3],(0|,?,?[1-3]),?(?<LongName>[^;]*)\z
on every line is my "best guess" from what I could understand from gosh's site and all resources I could find.

I want to improve it so that it can be very reliable. But I have no reliable complete source of information.

Released v0.896 ;), sorry for late release but been caught up last few weeks in sickness + school + real life ... etc.

Sorry for so many betas, I am waiting until I can write a C++ context menu handler (ED: I'm too n00b at C++ for this, going with registry entries + C# GUI instead) for this and for Reg2Inf and I will release final 0.90 and the new Reg2Inf which will support almost all formats and some enhancements.

Anyway, download link and changelog link are in the 1st post.
If you find any issues, please do not hesitate to report them :).

I'm designing a UI for the context handler (which may evolve into a full-fledged GUI rewrite in the future!), if you have any opinions about the handler, you can post them in this thread at Siginet's forum.

Hope you like it! (below is a mockup of the current UI in progress...),
I will be creating something for Reg2Inf to replace Reg2InfHandler.cmd

Edit: see my next post...

Hi n7Epsilon!

You coded a great tool here but as I reported for reg2inf some time ago, it makes some trouble with german umlauts.
When it pasrses my entries.ini it converts all Ü, Ä and Ös into ?

Anyway, nothing big, but maybe you can fix it somehow.

Post by n7Epsilon » Fri Nov 24, 2006 2:49 am

That's because FGCBA resaves the entries.ini file in ASCII format after processing it.

The reason for this behaviour is the following:
While nLite can read / write Unicode entries.ini correctly, the integrator can't read Unicode correctly (AutoIt limitation) (so it has the Unicode to ANSI conversion in its Advanced Options), so I made FGCBA make the entries.ini file Integrator-compatible.

However, i will add a command line option in the next version (/nosave) that will prevent FGCBA from resaving the entries.ini when it is processed.

Small Request for the next FGCBA
Have it ignore/recognize Copy and DelFiles Flags example in my Notepad++ AddOn I use this flag to delete a sometimes "In-Use" Shell Extention DLL on next reboot

Code: Select all

nppcm.dll,,,1
Image
If the DLL is currently in use then it will promt to restart and this will get added to the registry to get executed during next boot

Code: Select all

HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager","PendingFileRenameOperations",0x10000,"\??\%16422%\Notepad++\nppcm.dll"
Flags & Values
1 On CopyFiles: Warn if user tries to skip file.
1 On DelFiles: If file is in use, queue up delayed delete in wininit.ini. Otherwise an in-use file will not be deleted.
2 Setup Critical: don't allow user to skip file.
4 Ignore version check and always copy file. This will overwrite a newer file.
8 Force Rename (trick engine into thinking that file is in use). Note: Only happens if file already exists on target.
16 If file already exists on target, don't copy.
32 Suppress version conflict dialog and don't overwrite newer files.
destination-file1-name(, source-file1-name)(, temporary-file1-name)(,flag)
You can find more Info about the INF flags in this INF Guide (you might find the INF DOC pretty usefull, it has allot of info on INF)

I have another Reguest similar to the Copy/DeleteFiles flags above to be added to the next FGCBA (no hurry just posting it here in case you decide to update)

Here are some Register/UnregisterDLLs INF methods if you please can you add them?

Code: Select all

RegisterDLLs=Method.One,Method.Two

[Method.One]
16422,%SubDir%,Executable.exe,,,"/RegServer" ;or "/UnRegServer"
11,,msiexec.exe,,,"/RegServer /q"

[Method.Two]
11,,regsvr32.exe,,,"/s %16422%\%SubDir%\Library.dll"
Awesome app could not live without it ;) Thanks

@ricktendo64, I have implemented checking the flags for CopyFiles/DelFiles, but I need more information about the others... (yes, I have resumed work on this utility)

1st: I need a link to an addon that demonstrates these new features (Notepad++ addon link is broken)
2nd: Which of these new feature require AdvancedInf directive in [Version] (yes I have to check that too).
3rd: For the RegisterDLLs / RegisterOCXs a question:
- The INF documentation on MSDN says flags is a 1 or 0, but the Inf guide says I or N (Is this for AdvancedINF only or for setupapi.dll as well ?)
- MSDN says flag must be specified to specify, but in Method 2 you are not specifying any flags ? (Is this for AdvancedINF only for for setupapi.dll as well ?)
