N.A.N.Y. 2011 / Re: NANY 2011 Teaser: JottiQ
« on: December 28, 2010, 09:09 AM »
Just tested a few more platforms (though not requested, but I have them hanging around in VMWare)
Windows Server 2003 R2 32 bit: After installing all prerequisites it all works fine, but there is no Icon displayed in the context menu. But that's a W2K3 setting, AFAIK.
Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit: Same prerequisited, and the Icon is shown as expected.

Just re-registered the DLL after installing VC++2010 using my test-installer, and it ran just fine. I now have a contextmenu item in Explorer. Would you want to use languages besides English in the installer? (the script I started with has German beside English, and it can be removed or expanded to some extra languages (nl?), but it would take some extra work, but I don't mind, just tell me your preference(s))
In the meantime also tested the 'Enable/Disable context menu option from settings', and that works just fine, both to Enable and Disable.

If you can provide me with your Inno script I'll add the snippets to enable the Download and Install.

Further testing in Server 2003 x86 and Server 2008R2 (x64) after this post and a cup of coffee :D

Thanks for the links, I'm working on the Inno Setup detection, download and install part right now.

anandcoral it's fully clear why you created PCA, you said that earlier. It's just that I (or possibly we) don't need it's services until we use an app that 'misbehaves'. Just then, and only then, I'd like to use the services of PCA to move away the cursor. So here's the reason I would like the opt-in list instead of an opt-out list, I'd be adding every app I use except the ones that are misbehaving/annoying...

Hm, tested on Vista (x86) again, but still no joy with the context menu. Even the regsvr32 jqcm32.dll doesn;'t work: 'Can't load module JQcm32.dll' (but then in Dutch: "Kan module 'JQcm32.dll" niet laden.").
One peculiarity maybe: The Win7 x64 systems I tested JottiQ on, both have VS2010 installed, and on both WinXP and Vista I didn't have even .NET 4.0 installed until it wouldn't load JottiQ so I had to install that using Windows Update. I installed the plain 4.0 Client Profile thing, but it might still be missing the VC++ runtime (as you mentioned in a PM).
Also trying to enable this feature from the settings menu doesn't give a shielded OK button and doesn't enable the context menu entry, but seeing that regsvr32 fails explains that I guess.

On the 'single instance' issues, Inno Setup does natively support checking for a Mutex, and with a small add-on dll, can also check for a process name or windows title. Maybe that's enough?

I'll dig up the code to add .NET 4.0 and VC++ runtime to the installer today and post or link it here.

Also tested JottiQ 0.9.5 on WinXP 32 bit, but it has the same issue with the context menu as Vista 32 bit has, so it's most likely that that little bugger (the shellextension that is) doesn't behave as it should.
The advantage is that it doesn't want to reboot after a successful uninstall :D

Just tested JottiQ 0.9.5 on Vista 32 bit.
Guess Vista doesn't like the shell extension, because it's not showing in the context menu of Explorer, or at least not for the files I tried it with. I'll do an uninstall/reinstall to see if I accidentally unchecked that option. [...] And that didn't help a bit, neither when checking the 'Explorer Integration affects All Users' option, so that might need a fix. Vista's UAC is turned off, btw.
This worked fine on 2 of my Win7 x64 setups, one with UAC in it's default setting and one with UAC turned off.

See, it isn't that hard :D

I'm not sure if putting the version number in the shortcut would be that handy, you would have to clean that up with every upgrade you publish (deleting the .lnk file of that name using [InstallDelete]), but also cater for in your script in any future release, might someone skip/miss one of your in-between updates.

Living Room / Re: Need a New Mouse

That's a HUGE improvement and very clever; the ones that kill me are the ones that have to "dock" to recharge, and so can't be used at all while recharging.
That was one of the reasons for me to add a wired mouse placed on the 'other' side of my keyboard, and training myself into using it with the hand/arm on that side as well. It took a few weeks, but I now can use a computer even if my 'good' arm would be disabled/unavailable for a while.
Another reason was the avoidance of RSI by switching arm-usage.

worstje, to fix number 2 on your Known Issues list, have a look at AppMutex in the fine Inno Setup helpfile. There's also the CheckForMutexes support function, might you want to check it from some Code.
And here is a way to create it in C# (for if you didn't know).

(Edit: had a fight with the Code bbtag)

kryathaba, you could (re)start with a fresh script generated from the wizard, that gives you all this stuff by default...
Then add the extra files you need to add, and don't be shy to use an editor like InnoIDE or ISTool (that one is going off-line right about now) to aid in the setting of 'fancy' features like icons etc.
And don't forget to add the .ico files in the [Files] section.

As said earlier, the newsgroups are quite helpful, but we expect you to have done at least a little homework...

A white-list of applications to enable this feature on would be quite helpful, as like you already noted, the mousepointer only hinders sight in some and not all applications, and it could automagically enable when needed.

You could have just changed the shortcut the setup created to run the jar file from java, just like the installer (java -jar acm.jar, instead of acm.jar). The author falsely assumed you have java installed (you must have) and set to run your jar files (a false asspumption, as is any), instead of a decompressor (a jarfile has the same internal technical structure as a zipfile).

Well, here from the CET timezone, the same 5 to 12 sec posting-delays also occur. Also working with FF, and haven't tried Chrome, IE, Opera, or Safari (yet) as I don't expect differences if it's server-related.

3366
Just read an article review on Soluto, so you could automate that, to be found at www.soluto.com, it tries to give advice on what to get rid of and what to keep, based on a similar list and on what others decided. But you can't yet go blindly with it's advice ofcourse...

3367
They must have a really small house if this is needed to be removed to clear space :D

I'd just keep it for old times sake, and try to use it for anything, it's so darned old you will be hard pressed to find the proper material for it to make pictures onto, and then a service to get them developed. A (cheap) digital camera (~us$100,-) will probably be cheaper after about 5 or 10 full rolls of pictures, and give much better foto quality and ease of use (delete bad/fuzzed up pictures), and the printing cost will be lower or equal.

Usually such jar file should be run from a commandline using
java -jar ACM-4.1.1-Setup.jar

It's great :Thmbsup:
One (big, in size) feature request would be to be able to sequentially output the records to print in some form, so I could enter my christmas card addresses into SnapDB and print them nicely (for next years cards ofcourse)

« on: December 02, 2010, 03:50 PM »
ISPP can handle quite some stuff, but as I said, you have to press it a little (meaning it's not really easy)
It can update external files, but afaics, it doesn't handle s&r based on regex's, but a simple s&r it should be capable of. And looking at the help, it seems it can only write in ini format files...
And then there's the occasional Exec(), ofcourse, so some external tool can come in handy ;)

« on: December 02, 2010, 02:41 PM »
Hm, though this is useful, you do know that Inno Setup with the ISPP preprocessor (comes standard with the Quick Setup Pack) does have fabulous support for pre-compile scripting/processing, amongst which is version extraction from exe/dll version resources, and even from textfiles when pressed? I'd not pursue in this direction further as it's 'already there'...
Examples and much more is available from the news groups at the jrsoftware.org site.

Inno Setup is ofcourse the best choice you can make for a free installer tool :Thmbsup:

3374
Hm, I don't need to know how long I was away... I'd be more interested to see how long it is going to take before the screensaver is actually going to be started, after leaving my system idle, but still sitting at my desk. But I guess that's another utility ;)

3375
I'm still not sure about folding the thing over the back and using it like a spiral notebook. How do you keep the screen that would then be on the backside from getting scratched up?

Same rules as a dead tree edition I guess ... Be careful where you set it down so you don't get goo on the pages.
Do you mean to say that the back-screen doesn't blank & auto-revert like some car-audio stuff does when it is turned off??? :o :o :D
