Lost.exe modification

Dear sir,
Thanks for your app. of LOST.exe

http://portable.cubegames.net/Lost.exe

Appreciate your assistance how to:
[1] add photo
[2] split one sentence into new line.

i.e.

"if this drive has been found, pls contact ABC at ABX@ABC.com"

->

"if this drive has been found,
pls contact ABC at ABX@ABC.com
Or phone at: 123456789
Thank you "

Not possible

Unfortunately, you can't do that with the base version. I'll do a special version for you. Smile

NSIS doesn't have the capability to add a picture to a message box, other than the built in ones (at least, not that I know of).

It is

a little program meant to be run by the person who found your drive after you lost it. It tells her to contact you and displays a phone number and a email you specified before you lost the drive.

Now I know what it is...

Nice idea and works.
One question, Is it possible to get the autorun.inf file to launch two applications i.e. the lost.exe program and the PortableApps Menu ?

Probably not, but any ideas please ?

Search for that

it is not possible to launch 2 applications with autorun.inf but I think you can have autorun.inf launch a bat file which launches the 2. Or you use Smithtechs Applauncher.

Batch file

Simeon,
Thanks, thats exactly how I did it, but was "sort of" hoping for a nicer way of doing it.

I have got the "lost" app loaded on some company sticks, about 200 of them. Trying to keep things simple to support.

Thanks again.

Whoa

Cool, thanks for supporting Cube Games Biggrin

If you want me to, I could have a message box with "Is this your drive?" and if the user presses Yes, it launches an app of your choice, specified by the INI. Just give us a buzz if you want that.

Lost program

Happy to support both this site and those who support it. I have the portable Apps Suite installed on over 100 sticks and getting more interest each day - hits on this site must be rising steadily........

The batch file seems a simple thing, tried to turn to an exe, but had problems with setting the drive letter and path, as it ran in its own shell and was "looking" in C:\Windows, batch file works fine. Can't put direct path to filename as the drive letter changes, seen many "options" to fix in searches here but haven't got one to work fully (yet) with all hardware configurations used here.

The ability to answer Yes/No is a good idea, but in the batch it always shows the details then runs PStart, which for me is what I want to show, so Thanks, but not a facility I would need.

---
@echo off
start lost.exe
start PStart.exe
exit
---

I notice you supply the .nsi file - Can I alter some of the variables myself (with the NSI application) to change the messagebox heading to a Company name - all other "owner" details within the app to yourself would remain ? - Or could a value be implemented from the .ini file to include the Company name, as it is open source I think I can, but wanted to ensure that it is OK with you first, as you wrote it Smile

You can pretty much do whatever as long as there's a reference to me. That's the beauty of the GPL license.
However, I don't know if you can change the title of the message box with NSIS. I'll have a check in the morning.

I took your lost.exe source code and changed the message into Spanish...

Do you want to make this version publicly available? I can send it to you... tell me how...

Greetings.-

EDIT: well, easier... change this and it's done... Wink

OK

I will take a look, but if you compile it for me and send me the zip, I'll get it up straight away.

YW

I'm not a programmer but can translate... so anything I can do to support these fantastic portable applications, just drop me a line... Biggrin

It's my way to pay the extreme use I do of PApps...

Is there any way to compile

Is there any way to compile the NSIS source so that when you press ok it will laucnch StartPortableApps.exe?
And also is there any way to add a line of text that says if you press "ok" that it will launch the Portable Apps Menu and that if you press cancel than it will not launch PAM and this dialopg box will close (and to add a cancel button)?
PS I am trying to learn NSIS so... Thanks for any help.
