You are here
As you may know, I've released AutoINF 0.2. Find out about it at the forum thread or at PortaSoft. I've also merged my projects (KeyUTIL and AutoINF, possibly Registry Rocker) with Libertà, so downloads are at SourceForge.net now.
One serious problem I have here is that there are way too many places I have to update things:
As you've probably noticed, I haven't been posting in my blog very regularly. I've decided to make a few changes, so here they are: This blog will now be only for release/update notifications. I'm deciding on a blogging tool (probably NucleusCMS) to run on my space (nm35.portasoft.org); when I've set one up I'll be moving the "blog" part of things over there. (Opinions, neat links, tutorials...)
Now, for the app updates.
Hello all... I'm finally back. Sorry I had to leave.
Here's an update on my projects:
Want to learn a bit of NSIS, so you can write your own installer -- or, even better -- your own portable app? I can't provide a full-fledged tutorial -- for that you'd have to hunt around the NSIS website -- but I can provide this useful template and a few basic NSIS commands you'll find useful. Enjoy!
Use this template and replace the bolded text, and you'll have a basic NSIS script (which doesn't do anything). Click here to see some basic commands.
If you want your drive to automatically run an executable when you plug it in, and you don't want to buy a U3 drive, you're in luck. Here's what you do:
First, you have to make sure the computer you're at supports this trick. Insert a USB flash drive into the computer; a dialog box should pop up asking what action you want to take. If that dialog box appears, then this trick will work.
Open up Notepad or another text editor, and type in the following code:
I'm taking on a new project -- "NSIS-izing" the batch files in this thread. It should be pretty interesting...
Unfortunately, I won't be able to fix this up entirely in NSIS, unless I can resolve the "REMOVE" issues I'm having (I tell it to delete a file, and I find the file is still there -- even after reboot!). It looks like I'll be using a bit of Registry Rapper and probably several different executables (unless I can fit it all into one somehow...). Wish me luck!
If you've been keeping track of my projects lately, you've probably heard of Instant FileZilla, which is currently at version 0.3. It's designed to let you run a single executable, written in NSIS, which extracts FileZilla to a temporary folder, runs it, and (theoretically) deletes it at some point.
