Unicode plug-in test TAKE 3

Due to some problems on specific version(s) of Wine, I've had to re-write registry::_RestorKey from scratch.
So here it is !

Explanation of the test:

  1. Gives you the option to use the debug messages(yes) or not (no).
  2. If yes, Regedit.exe will be executed to follow the happenings in the registry
  3. Then it restores a .reg file to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PA.c[Test]Key
  4. It will move this key to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PA.c[Test]Key-Backup
  5. It will save the last key to $EXEDIR
  6. The plugin deletes HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PA.c[Test]Key-Backup
  7. Debug message, for you to check if anything is left behind(press NO) or it is all clean (press YES, and will continue to next plug-in)
  8. If you confirmed keys left behind, it will delete the keys using the native NSIS command DeleteRegKey
  9. Last debug message for you to check if the keys are still there or not !
  10. Finally it will Restore & Save a file called WinMerge2.reg and WinMerge1.reg is copied from the Source, you could diff them to verify if they are equal

In Wine the order of the values in WinMerge2.reg could be different from WinMerge1.reg, but they should contain the exact same data

All the result should be is :

The Plug-in test was successful

If not it will tell you which plug-in made the error + error codes,please report this info.

Please report what OS you've tested it on and if the test was successful or not !

dboki89,

Can you confirm that MaximaPortable is just not doing anything, like also not saving a *.reg file ?
Can you confirm that the registry plug-in just never works, or maybe just not when used in the Maxima launcher ?
Can you confirm that NewTextReplace plug-in for Unicode is working for you ?
And what about RealProgress plug-in, the one what shows the progress on the PortableApps.com InstallerU ?

About changing the source, I really don't see what I could change in the source to solve this.

All I can think of is to re-compile with a few different compilers and to link against the unicode pluginapi.lib or just use pluginapi.c .

.

1)

Can you confirm that NewTextReplace plug-in for Unicode is working for you ?

The results are the same both for Ansi and Unicode:

Unicode plug-in test

registry should have     0 - 0 - 0 - 0
registryVC2008U           0 - 0 - 0 - 0
registryVC2008libU           0 - 0 - 0 - 0

NewTextReplace should have   10
NewTextReplaceU                     10
Completed

2) FYI, this test added some entries to the registry (I think it changed my language setting for 7-zip):

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\7-zip]
"Lang"="nl"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\7-zip-Backup]
"Lang"="nl"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\7-zip-Backup]
"Path"="C:\Program Files\7-Zip"

3) MaximaPortable is saving a *.reg file. It left 3 files, actually (though only one REG file):

MaximaPortable\Data\settings\.xmaximarc
MaximaPortable\Data\settings\MaximaPortableSettings.ini
MaximaPortable\Data\settings\wxMaxima.reg

4)

Can you confirm that the registry plug-in just never works, or maybe just not when used in the Maxima launcher ?

How? With what to compare it to? Most of the other apps work great, and none of them left HKCU keys, if that's what you meant... A number of apps running latest PAL are working clean.

Btw, I'm unable to provide further testing 'till tomorrow, I have a lot of (real-life) work for tonight. Post anyway what needs to be checked, if I haven't done it yet.

Cheers Smile

Ok, this getting messy (I wish I did add the plug-in as is being used for the current Unicode NSIS Portable)

Anyway, the test succeeded successfully !

Maybe your entries got left behind due to PAL crashing ?

We will see, thanx anyway

[edit: the result shows a success, but the 7-zip entries shouldn't have been left behind Pardon ]

Is there anybody around who could give me a sensible answer on, if it would make a difference which compiler I am or should be using to compile ?

I just got VC++2008 sp1 (re)installed, should I just stick with it to try to fix this problem ?
I have got a frozen computer, so I could re-boot and install VC++6.0 sp6 to compile a few additional registry plug-ins, to include into a test package !

shouldn't make any difference, I would personally avoid VC++ 6.0 given its near complete lack of standards support.

I was revering vc++6.0, as this is what the original plug-in was compiled on.

Any ideas on https://portableapps.com/node/23419#comment-148379 ?

Would you have ago on re-compiling, I'm really not sure what I'm doing (wrong) !

Or maybe I should try to get help from the original author ?

A test package....

I include 2 executables an Unicode and an Ansi(as a reference).
Each executable consists of 2 Registry plugins, one linked against pluginapi.lib and one which includes pluginapi.c !
All compiled with VC++2008 sp1

As well I included the NewTextReplace plugin, exactly the one we are using at the moment ! (just to be sure)

The result should be this(if not there is a problem):

Ansi plug-in test

registry should have      0 - 0 - 0 - 0
registryVC2008U           0 - 0 - 0 - 0
registryVC2008libU           0 - 0 - 0 - 0

NewTextReplace should have   10
NewTextReplaceU              10
Completed

Link to test package: http://www.mediafire.com/?uzintvymy1x
(MD5: 2bdef571d5319909375c8c23001b381c)

If just people want to test this with all kinds of OS, we can be sure that all problems are solved.
And leave a note if the test succeeded or not, including the OS you are using!

I'm actually thinking this is to the runtimes not being there, I'll add them and see what we get. Could this be the issue on WinXP SP2 as well? Remember, I think most VC2008-compiled apps will require the VC2008 runtime which will NOT be on most Win2K and earlier XP machines.

Added Runtimes

Added the runtimes and that now yields the following:

Ansi plug-in test
Delete file: X:\PluginTest\NewTextReplaceA.reg

registry should have     0 - 0 - 0 - 0
registryVC2008A           -1 - -1 - -1 - -1
registryVC2008libA           -1 - -1 - -1 - -1

NewTextReplace should have   10
NewTextReplaceA                     10

Unicode plug-in test
Delete file: X:\PluginTest\NewTextReplaceU.reg

registry should have     0 - 0 - 0 - 0
registryVC2008U           -1 - -1 - -1 - -1
registryVC2008libU           -1 - -1 - -1 - -1

NewTextReplace should have   10
NewTextReplaceU                     10
Completed

Either way, we can't depend on the VC2008 runtimes being available on any system except Vista and Win7 I think, so let's using VC6 for compiling.

just need to link statically and it wont be a problem.

1) Open the Project Properties dialog
2) In "Configuration Properties -> C/C++ -> Code Generation", in the field "Runtime Library", choose "Multi-threaded (/MT)"

I think I got the hang of it

I think I got the hang of it !
What I was doing wrong (I think?), is that I was linking against MSVCRT.LIB !
But probably should have been LIBCMT.LIB, which is static ?
Just, this is making the plug-in filesizes quite big ! (57KB)
And I was getting the following warning:

LIBCMT.lib(cpu_disp.obj) : warning LNK4210: .CRT section exists; there may be unhandled static initializers or terminators

Which disappeared by using:
Linker->Input->Force Symbol References = __DllMainCRTStartup@12

Anyway, had to reboot cause my internet stopped working so have to re-install VC++2008 if I want to use it again.
For now I'll use VC++6.0sp6, and add the plug-ins to the test package.
I know it's old, but most NSIS plug-ins seemed to have been compiled with it !

Could you confirm if I'm doing things right or not ?
Thanx it advance

http://pcpfaa.bay.livefilestore.com/y1pitpPfzbaGJ2auucH11N4TRz1MxBX8USmM... ]
[edit2: FYI, originally it was linking against libcd.lib, but that's not valid for vc++2008, anymore]

Um

wow, it is a bit of a mess isn't it! I can't even get it to compile as there is a redefinition error between the TCHAR defined in Unicode NSIS and the one defined in the Windows SDK. I would just stick to VC++6, I can't make much out of the settings myself.

TCHAR defined in Unicode NSIS

Do you mean the TCHAR defined in nsis_tchar.h ?

As well could you confirm that I did understand the above about libcmt.lib ?

Anyway, I will re-package a new test executable take 2 !

Yes,

thats the one.

I messed about with it and got it to compile, I think the issue you have is the fact that under Project -> Properties -> Linker -> Advanced you have an Entry Point set but also told it that there is no entry point! If you remove both and then your specific link to libcmt I think it works.

Could you send me a copy of your compiled plugin + compile-settings, so I include it into the test-package as well. (I do not have access to VC++2008 at the moment)
I just like enough optional plugins so I can be that sure that I find out what are all the differences in behavior and get the compile-settings/plug-ins which are bug-less !

He, but the plugin named RegistryVC60libCurA.dll (in the Ansi tester) is the original plug-in from NSIS wiki. So this can't be me to blame, I didn't touch that one !

Still should try to solve it though !

Maybe the issue could be:

  nsExec::Exec `"$WINDIR\system32\reg.exe" import "$EXEDIR\Source\test.reg"`

could you exchange it with:

    registry::_RestoreKey "$EXEDIR\Source\test.reg"
    Pop $4
    Sleep 100

And recompile & try again (I just done and works for me on Windows XP)
[edit: Make it Sleep 200, as when I'm using 100 I still do get the odd error]

Correct

That is indeed the issue. Windows 2000 doesn't have reg.exe. That's why my scripts do an IfFileExists on it before executing. I recompiled the ANSI version and everything succeeded.

Wine too

I suspect that may fix it for Wine. Imports didn't work in Wine with the Launcher.

Just tell me when you've got all this sorted out what I need to change in the Launcher source code and I'll fix it.

So what I understood (in

So what I understood (in IRC)the plugin test isn't successfull for you ?
Probably instead of checking if reg.exe exists, we could check the result of nsExec::Exec .Like the old-style launchers are doing.

If you are having unsuccessful results of the test executables, could you try adding this:

	StrCpy $R9 ''
	nsExec::Exec `"$WINDIR\system32\reg.exe" import "$EXEDIR\Source\test.reg"`
	Pop $R9
	sleep 100
        ${IfNot} $R9 == 0
		DetailPrint "Windows 2000 or Wine"
		${plugin}::_RestoreKey $EXEDIR\Source\test.reg
		Pop $R9
		Sleep 200
	${EndIf}

Anyway, I'm a bit puzzled as I seem to get random results in the test-package when using the 'registry::_restore' command, and no difference when I increase the 'sleep' value!
Just very random, some times one plugin is unsuccesful, sometimes more, sometimes others and sometimes it's succesful ?

[edit: I seem to need a 'sleep' value of min. 500 after restoring the key to be succesfull. Mind you, in a launcher the key gets restored after all the backingup and deleting]

Check if it exists and then check that it ran properly. It is possible that on some PCs a user may not have permission to run it.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

XP sp2 ?

Thanx prapper,

If you do not mind, I will not add this one to the list(above) just now.

As this is the windows version what was all the fuzz about !

No worries prapper you didn't misunderstand anything.

It's just that the people reporting problems with the registry plugin, where all on XPsp2, so I'd like more people to test with this OS !

Just keeping XP SP2 bit together...

I tested both with admin privileges and without them. All tests (ANSI & Unicode x admin & no-admin) yielded in:

All Plug-in tests where successful

But, what's up with these plugin-tests and Netherlands language? This time, this was left behind:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PA.cTestKey]
"Lang"="nl"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PA.cTestKey-Backup]
"Lang"="nl"

Can you, prapper, kindly check on your system whether these keys were left?

My posts are old and likely no longer relevant.

The strange thing is that all

The strange thing is that all the child-keys (apparently) aren't left behind. If you see the .reg file what gets written to your registry, moved and then deleted,you will realize there is a lot more than just this 'language' value !
Pardon
Ps:The dutch lang-value is nothing to worry about, I just used a 7-zip .reg file as it's a reasonable size for testing !

[edit: I am fairly sure that your problem has nothing to do with the registry plug-in what so ever as in the test script there are the lines:

DeleteRegKey HKCU `Software\PA.cTestKey`
DeleteRegKey HKCU `Software\PA.cTestKey-Backup`

Native NSIS code, what really should have cleaned it all up, even if the plug-in is failing.]

In addition to our

In addition to our conversation in IRC yesterday....

I can reproduce these keys/values to show up in the sandboxie registry hive (somehow?).
However when I run Registry Editor in this same sandbox, these keys are not showing up and neither NSIS is recognizing them.

Anyway I made a new test-package, with additional debugging messageboxes, as well it now executes regedit.exe for you, so when run in a sandbox the Registry Editor is sandboxed as well.

Just follow the instruction in the debug messages, and I hope you'll find out there are no keys left behind, or if there are to finally understand why or when this exactly happens?

Please to test this properly do run this UNsandboxed in your Windows XPsp2 as well!

PluginTest4.zip

BTW: For you to understand what this test exactly does:
1. It first restores a .reg file to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PA.cTestKey
2. Then it moves this key to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PA.cTestKey-Backup
3. It will save the last key to $EXEDIR
4. Debug message, for you to check if HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PA.cTestKey-Backup exists(it should at this point), or if HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PA.cTestKey does not exist(should not exist at this point)
5. The plugin deletes HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PA.cTestKey-Backup
6. Debug message, for you to check if anything is left behind(press NO) or it is all clean (press YES, and will continue to next plug-in)
7. I you confirmed keys left behind, it will delete the keys using the native NSIS command DeleteRegKey
8. Last debug message for you to check if the keys are still there or not !
9. It will repeat this same test for all of the 5 included plugins

The test routine is the same as used before, all tough I included debug messages, excluded the textreplace tests and I changed the routine to restore the key as I mentioned in ${registry::RestoreKey} ? (using ExecWait)

Works in XP SP3

I just got a chance to test it in XP SP3, A and U versions work perfectly with all plug-in versions.

Were you wanting to update your main post to put in this version of the plug-in test?

Really this version was for dboki89...

But thanx for testing anyway, about updating the test in the main post, maybe I should cause we still need people to test it in Wine ! For the rest I think we can say that all tests are fine, so the plug-in we currently use is fine too !

All isn't that bad as it looks...

All though, I thought I fixed this with the change of ${registry::RestoreKey} into ExecWait (did work for ChrisMorgan)!

Can you confirm that all what's wrong is that the .reg file doesn't get loaded to the registry ?

If so, it would be a great help if you could do a little investigation into it, like throwing in some extra messageboxes, or try to make the following changes to lines 30 & 31 :

SearchPath $9 "regedit.exe"
ExecWait `"$9" /s "$EXEDIR\Source\test.reg"` $R9

Or..

SearchPath $9 "regedit.exe"
ExecDos::exec `"$9" /s "$EXEDIR\Source\test.reg"` `` ``
Pop $R9

Or.. as a last resort..

${plugin}::_RestoreKey "$EXEDIR\Source\test.reg"
Pop $R9
MessageBox MB_OK "Lets make sure _Restorkey has all the time to do it's job, please check regedit for keys!"

With the last option please keep in mind that RegistryVC60libCurA.dll is just the one downloaded from NSIS Wiki (as I'm writing this I realize the binary code is still even different from the one used in NSIS Portable)
So to be totally sure stick the one from NSIS Portable into the Plugin\A folder before you recompile (no need to rename it, it should just pick it up as it is at compile time)
I am assuming you did not have problems before on this version of Wine using PortableApps !

I hope you can help me a bit on this one, Thanx

Just another guess....

Could it be that in your version of Wine

Kubuntu 09.10 with Wine (latest version 1.0.1)

regedit.exe doesn't support 'Registry Editor Version 5.00' (UTF16-LE) files ?

1.1.43

My test was with the latest version in the Ubuntu Wine PPA, 1.1.43. The Wine registry files start with WINE REGISTRY Version 2 which doesn't help clear anything up. I've seen examples on the web of "Registry Editor Version 5.00" files, but those wouldn't tend to end up being saved by the user for applying as UTF-16LE but rather as UTF-8 or ANSI.

You could test it out direct in Wine's regedit.exe. That would probably help clear it up about whether it works or not.

I do not have any possibility

I do not have any possibility to test in Wine, nor do I have any experience with using Wine!
So I hope Simeon can help on this...

FYI: Other then 'RestoreKey', the registry plug-in does use it's own C code to 'SaveKey', 'REGEDIT4' for ansi / 'Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00' for UTF-16LE. So 'WINE REGISTRY Version 2' doesn't really apply for this.
I did tried converting a .reg file to UTF-8, but Windows didn't really like that !

finally

I found the time to go and run your 6th zip on my new Kubuntu install. Everything worked ok according to the output, but it did prompt me with an error (Programm had to close due to a severe error) but it kept running. It happened after it said: Testing UTF-16LE.reg file!
I updated my machine so now I have another wine version (1.1.42). Maybe the errors are only on the older wine version...

I wish we could have tested

I wish we could have tested this with your older version of Wine. But I think we can say that it probably was up to the UTF-16LE format of the .reg file.
According to this, regedit.exe in Wine can only handle the unicode file format since v.1.1.5 (for export at least).

If the unicode registry file format is really the issue, I do not think there is really a solution for this, as I consider it not to be an option to go back to an ansi registry file format !

About the crash message(which never actually really crashed), ChrisMorgan experienced the same. He considered this to be a Wine bug !

Wine storage method

I was mentioning "WINE REGISTRY Version 2" as the top line in the Wine hives (which are just .reg files).

Unicode support missing before 1.1 was what I suspected. You decide how you want to do it all. The current Ubuntu LTS release uses 1.1, so from that front I think it's OK. And it's not a matter of losing portability, just a matter of not loading settings; so long as it reports failure, it won't then try to save the registry key and lose all your settings (is it reporting failure on the RestoreKey call?)

It's not giving a failure

It's not giving a failure reply (looking at Simeons tests).
And probably it could be a matter of portability, whenever a default registry file is needed. Like when it's situated in DefaultData or when the launcher makes up one at first start.

I will have ago at writing a script for restoring the key (and have a look at the 'dot' problem).

But still I do not have any idea how big this Wine v1.0.1 is, or even if the file format is really the issue (probably is though, but got to be sure)?

the dot problem. It was an error on my part and has nothing to do with either the registry plugin nor the launcher.

Status update !

In the past few days, I done a re-write of ${registry::RestoreKey}. So it includes it's own code to import unicode format registry files, instead of just launching regedit.exe (What the original plug-in was doing).

I got ChrisMorgan to test it in his Wine version 1.1.44, successful.
And myself I just tested it successfully in Wine 1.0.1 (Ubuntu 9.10), in a VirtualBox.

This will do away with all the current issues for Wine, no more crash-messages and unicode registry file format support for more Wine versions, if not all.

In the next few days I will polish-up the code (some better return value handling and support for deleting keys and values).

So I will be able to release the new test-package soon !

The new plug-in (test) has been released !

I really hope I didn't do this to early. I basically had it ready last night, but then stumbled upon some issues with the escape sequences, like: \\, \", \r & \n !
Even Windows regedit.exe seems to be buggy for the last two (\r \n). Anyway it should be fixed now !

BTW: I won't be around for 2 days !

[Edit: so it was too early, I didn't include support for value-names with escape sequences. Just the values it self support this for now!
Will fix this in 2 days, together with any other bug what could appear !
Mind you, the only App what I recall needing the escape sequences, is PDF-XChangeViewerPortable.exe! And Windows can't even handle them propperly]

"FullBeforeInstall"="HKCR\r\n{\r\n}\r\nHKCU\r\n{\r\n  NoRemove Software\r\n  {\r\n    NoRemove Microsoft\r\n    {\r\n      NoRemove Windows\r\n      {\r\n        NoRemove CurrentVersion\r\n        {\r\n          NoRemove Explorer\r\n          {\r\n            NoRemove FileExts\r\n            {\r\n              NoRemove .pdf\r\n              {\r\n                val Progid = s ''\r\n                val Application = s ''\r\n              }\r\n            }\r\n          }\r\n        }\r\n      }\r\n    }\r\n  }\r\n}\r\n"

Plugin 8 works perfectly on XP SP2 and XP SP3. Will check Vista later today, don't have the time to do so now.

The MD5 checksum is wrong, since I downloaded 3 times, and every download resulted with MD5 of:

c6b716a191a3348278cc9be340f13171

Statistically, it's impossible that I D/Led it 3 times as a 100% same corrupted file... Smile And also, the test ran OK... You might wanna update that Smile

Oh, I like that nice touch, the test automatically opening the Registry Smile

Btw, the result:

Unicode plug-in test

Testing UTF-16LE registry file !
registryU test is successful

Testing ANSI .reg file !
registryU test is successful

The Plug-in test was successful
The new ${Registry::RestoreKey} was used to restore key.

To fully do this test you, could diff the two following files
'WinMerge1.reg' has just been copied over from 'Source\TestUnicode.reg'
'WinMerge2.reg' has first been restored and then saved by the plug-in
Completed

EDIT: oh, and the WinMerge*.reg files are the same, with MD5: 1ae1ebda3277170bc972610e2a4e77c5

You're welcome :)

Update (you're going to love me now xD);

Now tested on Windows Vista SP2 32bit (Ultimate), Wine 1.1.30, Wine 1.1.43, Wine 1.1.44...

Important!
Tested on Wine 1.2 Release Candidate 1! However, since I personally built it, I'll try building it again on another distro to verify.

All results are successful. In Wine, as you mentioned, the values in WinMerge*.reg files are scattered around... Naturally I didn't search for each and every value to determine if it's OK. I just diagnosed by checking:

-> Size: 118.376 bytes (in all files)
-> Characters: 861 (in all files)
-> RegKeys (just their names): same (in all files)
and as one final precaution,
-> Encoding: Unicode with BOM (in all files)

I can't figure out why it works for me and doesn't work for JTH. I noticed I had to hit F5 to refresh, since Vista was pretty slow about updating the tree-view in regedit, but the keys were removed without a problem...

Windows 7 x64 Successful

The test ran successfully in Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. And the files are identical.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Vista SP1&SP2 failed. Both the UTF-16LE and ANSI .reg files yielded all -1s.

1.2-rc1

It was actually 1.2-rc1 I tested it in for Wine, on Ubuntu 10.04. I'm all up to date.
