Ok Good News! & Bad News!

I sent an e-mail to the developer about this and found that the following DLL file (ccrpbds6.dll)located in (X:\PortableApps\PIXresizerPortable\App\PIXresizer\ccrpbds6.dll) has to be registered in order to use batch mode.

I need a Script for a (.bat) file that would allow it to register the DLL file when PIXresizerPortable starts and unregister it when PIXresizerPortable closes.

It has to be done by one .bat file that will made in to a .exe file.

This is the code that registers it:

// option /s means 'silent'
c:\windows\system32\regsvr32.exe /s ccrpbds6.dll)

And here is the code that unregisters it:

// if you want to unregister (uninstall) it later:
c:\windows\system32\regsvr32.exe /u /s ccrpbds6.dll

I also sent this to the developer of PIXresizer just incase.

RegDLL/UnRegDLL

This is actually a handy case for me to get someone to really test the RegDLL/UnRegDLL NSIS instructions I've used in preference to regsvr32 in the DLL server registration feature for PAL 2.1. Try using that - I believe you're using PAL, so it'd be Other\Source\PortableApps.comLauncherCustom.nsh like this (make sure the paths are correct):

${SegmentFile}

${SegmentPrePrimary}
	RegDLL $AppDirectory\PIXResizer\ccrpbds6.dll
!macroend

${SegmentPostPrimary}
	UnRegDLL $AppDirectory\PIXResizer\ccrpbds6.dll
!macroend

(In PAL 2.1 it'll be:

[RegisterDLL]
1=%PAL:AppDir%\PIXResizer\ccrpbds6.dll

)

Hey Chris

Hey Chris, I am using the latest PAL and I have done the custom code but it is not working for me. I don't know what I am doing wrong or if it is PAL that is not working properly on this code.

What ells can I do?

Sorry for the bad news guys Sad

Development?

Do you mean you're using the latest development build of PAL? There was a serious bug (always quitting instead of just in certain situations!) in something I committed five days ago, try again now to get a fix I put in a short while ago. You can also use the [RegisterDLL] section with the code I mentioned above.

Note that there's an issue with all this approach which Gringoloco pointed out to me a few days ago; if the CLSID is already provided by a local version of the DLL, it will be unregistered (replaced) and not reregistered afterwards. I was going to try to fix it today - having finally found the DLL calls I want last night - in Ole32.dll, GetClassFile and I think one of StringFromCLSID or StringFromGUID2. But then another thought struck me. A DLL server can register more than one ProgID, and so affect more than one key. But then, another thought has just struck me. It won't matter, the reregistration will take care of all keys afterwards. So I'll see if I can sort it out today. I don't think I will be able to though, as I don't have admin at Uni (in the Faculty of IT we're power users though :-)) and I think I won't be able to register DLLs (they go in HKLM). Not certain.

I'll need to play round a bit. (Link for self on the topic to save time finding it again in a different browser at Uni: _)

Windows 7 keeps telling me

Windows 7 keeps telling me Pixresizer needs admin rights. No problem at my own computer, but at work that isn't quite so convenient.

Anyone else got the same problem?

I did

I did add a code in the launcher to force Admin rights.
But I will ask the developer if he it would be possible to change that, I make no promises.

launcher.ini

As we were doing some testing on the registering of ccrpbds6.dll in combination with PAL 2.1 Beta, I came across the following inconsistencies in your launcher.ini

[Launch]
ProgramExecutable=PIXresizer\PIXresizer.exe
WorkingDirectory=%PAL:AppDir%\PIXresizer
SplashTime=2000
RunAsAdmin=force
SinglePortableAppInstance=true
SingleAppInstance=false
CheckRegWrite=false ;THIS DOES NOT EXSIST

[Activate]
Registry=true

[RegistryKeys]
PIXresizer_portable=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Bluefive\PIXresizer

[LiveMode]
CopyApp=false

[RegistryValueWrite]
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\BlueFive\PIXresizer\Directories\TempDir=%TEMP%

[RegistryKeys] ; SECOND USE
Inno Setup=HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/BlueFive/PIXresizer

[RegistryCleanupIfEmpty]
1=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Bluefive\PIXresizer
2=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Bluefive

[FileDriveLetterUpdate] ; WRONG FORMAT
Backslash1=%DATADIR%\settings\PIXresizer.reg
[FileWrite1]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\settings\PIXresizer_portable.reg
Find=%PAL:LastDrive%\
Replace=%PAL:Drive%\

[RegistryCleanupIfEmpty]
1=HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/BlueFive/PIXresizer ; NOT NEEDED
2=HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/BlueFive

[RegistryValueBackupDelete]
1=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Qt\Squiggle\NotFirstRun

[RegistryCleanupForce] NOT NEEDED, and will destroy locally installed version
1=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\BlueFive\PIXresizer
2=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\BlueFive

I didn't get a chance to test it properly, it's just an indication!

works for me

It's working for me

*disclaimer* I don't use the 'regular' PIXresizer that often, and only ever to to a rezise on a bunch of photos (ie: I don't do a lot with it)

but this installed and ran without complaint/problems plus did the exact same thing I'd expect the 'regular' PIXresizer to do.

looks good to me Smile

It works!

Sorry it has taken so long to come back and test this one. Clicking on the multiple files tab and then clicking on the source button is now working and I tested a batch of 12 pictures and it worked great. Thank you.

Admin Rights

As this app shouldn't need admin rights, it can't yet be considered for release. I did some research and we should be able to temporarily pseudo-register the controls for use in HKCU: http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?t=507228

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

Still needs admin rights to run

Hello.

Is there any hope that PixResizer will be fixed so that it will not need admin rights to run? It is, together with firefox and fireftp, a nesessary tool when I travel the world and I am not able to send all my pictures back home in original size.

It keeps telling me that it needs admin rights, on WinXP, Win7. At hostels around the world that is very often not possible to get, and also impossible to explain to any one who is not a master in the science of computers (not that many actually).

My version is the latest from portableapps.com.
