ProcessExplorer Portable Wrapper Beta3(Final)

Okay, I figured Autoruns would have more of a response. So, as promised, here's Process Explorer Portable. Well, a wrapper at least.

I've made up a wrapper for Sysinternal's ProcessExplorer

Before anyone gets on my case and chews my flash stick off, this is a launcher only. You will have to download the program separately and extract it. You'll see a lovely help.txt file that explains everything.

Okay, enough! You say! I wish to have it! Okay. Wrapper Only!

You may notice a "License Agreement" All that does is tell you what OS and what's not. It also give you the link one last time.
Release Notes

  • Beta1- Initial Release
  • Beta2- Fixed a stupid mistake I made in the launcher- all should be well
  • Beta3- Final Version.

Not re-using saved settings

I have a local install of procex already.

When I run your wrapper, it successfully backs up my local setting, and restores them perfectly on exit, but....

Every time I run your wrapper, it is back to a completely default config. It doesn't seem to be reinserting Data\settings\ProcessExplorer.reg after it backs up the local data.

WinXP SP2, on an admin account.

can you check the

can you check the data/settings and tell me if its making autorun.reg?

I basically find/replaced my autoruns wrapper for this- there's a good chance I missed when I gave the once over.

I'm on a borrowed computer I don't want to plug my flash drive into, so when I find the problem, I'll get a new version up tonight.

*EDIT*
******
Found it! I'll have the fix uploaded tonight. Alernately, overwrote the cleanup section with this and recompile. It should work.

CleanUp:
		CreateDirectory $SETTINGSDIRECTORY
			${registry::SaveKey} "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sysinternals\Process Explorer" "$SETTINGSDIRECTORY\processexplorer_portable.reg" "" $0
			Sleep 100
		${registry::DeleteKey} "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sysinternals" $R0
		Sleep 100
		${registry::KeyExists} "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sysinternals-BackupByProcessExplorerPortable" $R0
		StrCmp $R0 "-1" TheEnd
		${registry::MoveKey} "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sysinternals-BackupByProcessExplorerPortable" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sysinternals" $R0
		Sleep 100

If my suspecions are correct, you will have a file called ProcessExplorer.reg in the data/settings folder.

Sorry I haven't made that

Sorry I haven't made that icon yet. I'm in the process of building a new computer, and my old computer just randomly stopped turning on the other night, so now i have 1 PC to rebuild and 1 to finish building before i can do anything.

No worries. I just made up some dorky thing. I figured you do the icon when you had time. Its almost finals at my college, so I figured I flip it out and use your better icon when I got it. I hope you don't mind

I don't mind at all, use whatever you want lol. I wanted to get the icon out last nite, but my new PC froze during Windows install (i figured out why after a quick google search this morning), and my old PC won't turn on. So i havent had a PC to use since Tuesday.

my powersupply and outlet are out, so I feel your pain.

Yeah, I'll use yours when I get it- looks like there may be a second release.

Okay, BETA2 is up, fixing my (and your, as a result) unfortunate problem with the registry handling.

Have fun!

That's fixed it :)

Sorry, I should have said that it was correctly saving the reg file, just not reading it back correctly.

Anyway, beta2 does indeed read it in - it even correctly picked up the settings from the last test I ran on beta1 Smile

Still correctly handles the backing up of the local settings, too, so, from my perspective, everything looks good!

Can't confirm how it works on a box without a local copy, but the behaviour with one seems fine.

Could we stick with a uniform way of announcing in the tite. I suggest using Launcher in the title instead of wrapper as wrapper suggest embedding a app into another app.

It is uniform, both of my launcher's are labeled as wrappers Smile

I think wrapper is better, as it suggests that it takes care of the program. Launcher could be anything- so long as it launches the programs, you're fine!

I think launcher is better, that's how ALL of the other launcher/wrappers are named on this site, plus as LOGAN said, wrapper makes it sound like the base app is embedded in it.

what'd I tell ya

App seems to work great. What other SysInternals utils are you planning to work on? Process Monitor? etc?

I agree with LOGAN and Zach though, like I said in my first post to Autoruns, launcher appears to be the standard.

I can't find John's post but there's one somewhere that talks about it. Even in this post, you use wrapper and launcher interchangeably Biggrin

Anyhow, regardless of the naming squabbles, I'd say these launchers are great additions.

Yeah- I talked with JTH over

Yeah- I talked with JTH over IRC today, and I'm gonna change it, hopefully when Zach sends me a new icon.

I could do the other ones, but don't have that much intent. If you really, want some of them do, I'll do them. ProcessMoniter shouldn't be to hard, just switch process explorer for process moniter.

I just am not really interested in trying to come up with decent icons. If you give me a set of decent ones, then I guess I'll whip up some of the easier ones, like procmon, etc.

Thankyou for the additions comments

Well . . .

I'm merging all the threads together. If I could have a mod lock the thread, I'd appreciate it.

@Sylink, got Process Monitor done. Process Monitor Portable Homepage

Same arrangement as before.
