My gut feeling tells me the safest, last resort, way to approach this sort of issue is to prompt the user for the installer file used, compare that with what the system says your installer's exe path is, and proceed accordingly.

i don't like that.. too confusing.. BUT you could certainly give the developer who is calling the dll some options to pass to the check function to tell you what they want to do.

the safe thing might be instead of REFUSING to install (which is what i want), displaying a big warning to user but still giving them the OPTION to proceeed.

I'm still thinking the best solution to this is to have CHS export in a standard csv (or add xml) format, and use a separate program to convert from csv to the standalone file solution that you want.

In all fairness, i do think there is a big distinction between bundling apps (like opencandy does) and adware on one side, and malware on the other.  And i think there is every reason to acknowledge this distinction.

If a developer wants to "bundle" his apps with other tools that are "OPT-IN", so that they will not install by default by a distracted user, and those other tools are easily uninstallable without leaving crap, and are not harmful to the pc, then I have no problem with that.

next question:

if you go to the main Options node, and the second tab "Program Options 2", what do you have for Custom Internet Browser?
If you have something specified and are using $$1, try "$$1" instead.

Really looking forward to this.

Some quick thoughts:
What about checking what directory the installer is being run from?  If it's wrapped i'm guessing that its being dumped in a temp directory before being launched -- that would be a big clue, and perhaps the only one you actually need?

What have you found for these common adware wrappers? Are they exiting when they launch the real installer, so you don't have access to their info? or can you get the filename of the parent process that launched the installer?

v2.27.0 BETA - Dec 19, 2014
  • [MinorFeature] Added option (tweaks tab) to not obey programs (like password utilities) that put stuff on the clipboard and mark it as to-be-ignored by clipboard tools.
  • [MinorFeature] Added option (tweaks tab) to go to TOP of grid list when selecting new group; improvement to keeping selected row visible and focused when adding new clips.

Ok so without trying to reproduce yet, i am noticing that those are both HTML files.. i wonder.. could you see if the behavior is also present on non .html files?
8  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Sorting - latest copy on top on: December 19, 2014, 10:45:33 PM
If you grab the latest beta, you will find on the Tweaks tab a new option to change the default behavior and make it go to TOP of grid when selecting a new group:

Wow that's interesting.. Never heard of it this phenomena.. I'll look into it a little.
10  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: Drawskrit on: December 19, 2014, 03:45:24 PM
that's pretty cool.
11  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Folder Node does not like spaces in filenames on: December 19, 2014, 03:15:58 PM
Spaces in the middle of file names should not cause any problems for LBC and that is a bug that needs to be fixed asap.
Problem is I am having a hard time reproducing the issue.
Any way you could help me reproduce the issue or any other clues?

ps.
I'm updating a beta release with bugfixes here:

We do need to get this fixed -- there is no reason it should be happening.
You're using the latest version of SC, right?

What I wish I knew is if this is that old problem that came back or something different..
16  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: FScript Javascript SDK - Write FARR plugins in javascript and more. on: December 19, 2014, 11:03:42 AM
Try using
Formatted for Javascript with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. function onProcessTriggerV2(path, title, groupname, pluginid, thispluginid, score, entrytype, args, triggermode) {

on your same dll

Welcome to the site, benjarry!

It's been so long since I used fscript, but it looks to me like you are doing things correctly.
At some point FARR moved from OnProcessTrigger to OnProcessTriggerV2 with a different set of parameters, and it caused some weirdness with fscript.  I know that was resolved but I think it may still be out of date in some way.
I think that's related to your issue but I'm still trying to remember the solution -- I hope someone else will jump in here but I will try to look around in the mean time.
So please don't give up, we'll figure this out  thumbs up

19  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Sort by date on: December 19, 2014, 10:32:00 AM
You mean you've got a descending DATE sort?

Using divider option in Alpha sort mode is simple -- it divides into sections for each letter.
Using divider option in Date sort mode is more interesting.  It basically groups the first group into files within an hour from each other, next group within a day of each other, next group within a week, next groups within a month.  Enable the timestamp option to see the actual dates for the files/folders so you can better understand.

21  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: %variables% and other small (or not so) things. on: December 19, 2014, 09:12:59 AM
I'm afraid it doesn't look like there's a way to make LBC see changes to environmental variables without restarting it.

So it sounds like maybe the best we can do in this case is help you figure out how to make work the idea of restarting LBC from within itself easily -- where did you get stuck there>

  • [Feature] Added toolbar button in tree configuration dialog to quickly rebuild toolbars and preview changes.
  • [Feature] Added option to folder contents nodes to sort results by date (and list date).
  • [MinorFeature] When Ctrl+V paste is not accepted by a node, you now get a better error.
  • [MinorFeature] Some error messages could appear on wrong monitor of multimonitor setups.
  • [MinorFeature] Added shortcut to Control Panel itself in control panel shortcut list.
  • [MinorFeature] Maintenance check for missing images and commands now reports each node's internal id.
  • [MinorFeature] Dropping a shortcut file and telling LBC to copy shortcut properties will now use shortcut name as node caption.
  • [MinorFeature] Menu item captions can now use environmental % vars.
  • [BugFix] SwitchTo running process was not detecting running processes if the command was specified using relative path or environmental vars.
  • [BugFix] LBC was failing to grab icons from non-exe files.
  • [BugFix] Fixed hanging crash that could occur if an icon could not be extracted from a file (for example a dropped .scr file).
  • [BugFix] Fixed incorrect missing-icon image used when icon could not be extracted from a file.
  • [Change] In an effort to avoid having significant changes to configuration tree lost on a crash -- the program now prompts you to save changes whenever you close the configuration tree.
  • [BugFix] On opening configuration tree, the tree was sometimes scrolled so that the Options node was easy to overlook.
23  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Folder Node does not like spaces in filenames on: December 19, 2014, 12:50:19 AM
Question -- is it having trouble opening files with spaces in the name or only files that have spaces at the BEGINNING or END of their filename?

i don't have an opinion on this but i just wanted to say it brings me happiness to hear from you.  Thmbsup
25  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Sort by date on: December 18, 2014, 01:54:00 AM
Implemented; will be in next beta release.

[attach=1]


As hinted at in the screenshot above, i've added a couple more features that will hopefully enhance the sort-by-date option.
