I uploaded a new version. http://nativeex.exec...eEx_multiPE.zip
The new version can be optionally run under the latest official stable version 080-3 of WinBuilder.

BTW: nativeEx_multiPE can still be run under "nightlies" versions of WinBuilder.
Just uncheck the "80" checkbox in the project GUI.

BTW_1: Build time on my PC:
080 > 4 minutes 48 seconds
081 > 1 minute 42 seconds

I uploaded a new version. Link see first post.

There have been still some initialization issues, when switching between different source CDs.

I locked this topic to restrict for news.

Comments please to the main topic.

I already moved some posts to that topic.

I uploaded a new version. Link see first post.

Thanks to MainCoon, MichaelZ, Ed_P, Paraglider, LinuxBaby, ... for their glitch reports and suggestions.

I hope everything is fixed / added now.

Main enhancements:
  • Paraglider's RemapDrives.exe is integrated into the three (XP, Vista, Win7) tracks.
  • Joshua's PELoader is used in the Vista track, too. One loader >> same build logic.
Peter

BTW: To have best performance and can use all new features, you should allways test with the latest WinBuilder beta version in http://nativeex.exec...oads/WinBuilder
The last characters are the date.

I'm proud to publish a new version of the DownToolEx.

Intentionally nativeEx_multiPE contains only a small number of appliction scripts.

But nativeEx_multiPE can process most of the application scripts of different projects.

As first solution I used links. But to use the links,
  • the different projects have to be stored physically in the %BaseDir%
  • the start time of WinBuilder remarkably increases because of much more scan work
  • and last but not least, the user sees ALL apps of the different projects, which makes the choice difficult
Inspite long time ago I implemented the "Link" mechanism into WinBuilder, currently I think that using "Links" is not "State of Art". Therefore I switched to DownLoadEx use.

DownToolEx downloads scripts from the different project's servers directly into nativeEx_multiPE.
Process levels are automatically adapted.

IMO this tool can be used for projects different from nativeEx_multiPE to download from ONE big WinBuilder Script Archive. I prepared this, but currently the functionality is disabled, because this idea is not yet tested enough.

There is a new version available.

It offers bootable PE1 ISOs in a multiboot CD, using an firadisk floppy image.

Thanks to Galapo and Ed_P for suggestion.

Advantage: No Imdisk needs to be installed on the host.
Disadvantage: PE is not writable. That prohibits e.g. use of hostNIC.

A new version is uploaded.
It fixes a "wireless missing dll" ED_P reported.

The interesting news: In app scripts, boot.wim / install.wim is automatically (if necessary) mounted / unmounted, when you run the app script outside the project build.

This project currently runs with WinBuilder 81.0.1.198 only. In 81.0.1.199 the SetEsc command is removed. And I currently do not know when I find the time to adapt the project to work w/o SetEsc.

I uploaded a new version.

It is now again compatible to the latest WinBuilder beta and also propably for future betas / final.

Nuno was right to call the SetEsc command unnecessary. The same result could be reached with two lines of conventional code.

@Nuno: I apologize.

I uploaded a new version.

Main news:
  • Build time of the Win7 track on my host reduced from about 14 minutes to about 6 minutes.
  • API ReadEnv is not longer used. To be compatible with 3rd party app scripts, the ReadEnv macro is redirected to a warning echo.
