File Name: About..WINB
File Submitter: Tony4219
File Submitted: 22 Dec 2012
File Updated: 05 Jan 2013
File Category: App scripts

Adds a startmenu item, when clicked, displays info about your current build, such as build number, date, which usbstick used, etc. This info is stored in KEYS of an INI file and displayed by VBScript, which pops up a small dialog box using Echo. No additional files needed, except for build.ini that contains your personalized info. You can leave the last 3 of 4 Display lines blank if you want (Key3/4/5). Keys seem to hold only about 50 characters each. Tested only with Win7PESE x64 although it is simple enough to modify for other purposes.

I found this absolutely necessary when building frequently and using different usbsticks, and wondering exactly which build I was running at the time. I used something similar with BartP and XPE. I hope you can find it of use.

If you have difficulty saving a brand new build.ini file, then "prime the pump" and put a short file (see below) called build.ini in: %GlobalTemplates%\Win7PESE\AdditionalFiles\DirCopy_x64\build.ini

p.s. My current 6-line build.ini file that matches the second screen shot:

[section]
Key2=Tony's WINB Build Version
Key3=WINB145 12/22/12 CopyFilesFULL
Key4=IE8 not showing videos.
Key5=Brcom WiFi only connects to unsecured.
Key6=Hi Mom !!

I do not understand, why you created a new download, (which implements a new support topic,) rather then refreshing the current one with a new version.

The new download makes it much more difficult, to follow your product.

BTW: I cannot see the "second screen shoot"

Sorry, chalk it up to the work of a n00b, :cold: me.

 

I wanted to redo the main text and screenshot since it changed. The reason for V2 is to make it easier to change the titlebar verbiage, which I thought would be better. I didn't want to delete the original.

 

You're right, you don't see the second screenshot (the popup) unless you click to 'Download this file' screen. Then I see both, but in the forum where I am typing this reply, I only see one screenshot too.  I checked with WinXP and Win7 and I see both at the Download screen. The main screenshot is the IDE display (what you see when you configure the script).

 

I can try editing the Upload again, using the Version Line as "2", and leave first line as "About..Winb" without "v2'.

Will that do what you are asking?  One thread instead of two will be easier to monitor for me.

 

Sorry for confusion.
