AsusPortatil - 10_03_2022 , 21_48_11.pngCreate ini from content folder : shortcuts, folders, any first level file. The program don't work with the word "menú"
In the folder the program continues offerint in the autohotkey menu the full path. It's not necessary and difficult the use.

Pero no te preocupes que todo sale.

Hello! Just wanted to mention the reason this is unsolved is simple: I don't have Visual Studio on my Linux development computer. This is one of the edge cases where no library did the job.

Sorry to Contro (We tried to make things work using VS on his Machine via PM). The program is 99%, only need a developer to follow the instructions on:

https://stackoverflo...t-of-shortcut-folder

Sincere apologies! I don't know when I am going to have a Windows 10 development computer again... for the time being, I am doing as much as I can to be helpful to the DC community with my Linux / Windows 7 setup.

Thanks!

P.S. I'm aware of AHK's FileGetShortcut.

It is possible to use AHK as a link library of sorts yet due to licensing issues I usually avoid the GPL license covering AHK. I prefer MIT or other more-permissive license, given I release code with CC0 Universal myself...

In all honesty, a traditional AHK script serves Contro better in terms of simplicity :)

Okay! I'm currently modifying the program to use Autohotkey as the .lnk library while avoiding GPL issues.

Let's try again to get this from 99% to 100% to finish the job & call it a completed release :Thmbsup:

Done!

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. FileGetShortcut, %1%, OutTarget
  2. stdout := FileOpen("*", "w")
  3. stdout.Write(OutTarget)

Release + easy-to-follow instructions next :)

Don't worry.

Hello & thanks! I'm doing, which is a better option! :)

Here's the result of the new AHK wrapper program:

Direct download: INIalaContro_v0-2-0.zip

GitHub release: https://github.com/p.../releases/tag/v0.2.0



Instructions:

Download AutoHotkey from https://www.autohotkey.com/download/ (AutoHotkey_1.1.33.10.zip)

Unzip.

Save the AHK script as "lnk.ahk".

autohotkey-folder.png

Open the program, then click on Settings/Configure lnk parser.

INIalaContro_v0-2-0-settings.png

Configure executable and script:

INIalaContro_v0-2-0-configure.png

Executable: AutoHotkeyU32.exe / AutoHotkeyU64.exe

Script file: lnk.ahk

Hit OK

Now use the main program window to browse to the directory where you want to generate the Launcher.ini file.

That's it. Enjoy!
