Somewhere between WB69 and WB72 one of my favorite applications, Ad-Aware Pro,
lost functionality to load and update definition file and without that it’s useless.

I am not able to find reason nor remedy for this unpleasant happening and therefore
kindly ask for help to solve it.

Please find attached ProjectInfo files for WB69 and WB72:

Attached File  ProjectInfo69.zip   2.25KB   209 downloads Attached File  ProjectInfo72.zip   2.24KB   200 downloads

Thank you!

Some work is already being done, I've started a new script that would update the definitions file inside the script itself - now it's only missing to make adaware work under PE environment, I lack some time to finish it - but published my work so far and Areyu will probably finish it - of course that you are also invited to complete this script if you wish.

Was blogged here: http://blog.boot-lan...ork/2007-07-19/
Scripts available here: http://www.boot-land...ipts-t2647.html

Happy scripting! :yahoo:

After I replaced hivesFactory.Script version 027 in latest
LiveXP Script pack with version 012 from WB067 pack,
my Ad-Aware Pro application become fully functional!!!

There is nothing wrong with my Ad-Aware.Script, but
problem is somewhere else.

I have no knowledge to find it and repare it and kindly ask
Peter to find some time and solve this annoying glitch.

Thank you.

@Phox!
Can you help me to find the change I made which causes your ad-aware disaster:
  • In Fundamentals, define Debug=1
  • Delete the Workbench\<your project>\Cache\Prebuild folder
  • Delete the Temp\<your project> folder
  • Build with hivesFactory 012
  • Save the log, projectinfo.ini, the Workbench\<your project>\Cache\Prebuild and Temp\<your project> folders in a *.zip
  • Delete the Workbench\<your project>\Cache\Prebuild folder again
  • Delete the Temp\<your project> folder again
  • Build with hivesFactory 027 (maybe you try the latest 033)
  • Save the log, projectinfo.ini, the Workbench\<your project>\Cache\Prebuild and Temp\<your project> folders in a different *.zip
  • Post the ZIPs
  • In Fundamentals, reset Debug to 0
    (If you do not do so, on every build the hives will be rebuilt. A lot of time!)

@Peter!

It took me some time to do testing because hF012 is not working
With nativeEx and hF033 is not working with LiveXP.

I have done testing of LiveXP Project with hF012:

and hF027:

Attached File  hf0027.zip   663.11KB   177 downloads

I hope that it will help you to determine what is the problem!

Thank you for your time and attention.

Thanks, Phox :yahoo:

I think you are waiting for a result as exited as me.
But nevertheless, now is Sunday night (for me, for you a little bit later) and I only want to do some 'low IQ items' tonight.
The 'higher IQ items' have to wait until tomorrow!

Have a nice 'low IQ items', but don't overdue it! :)

The issue can be found in the fact that in your project nativeEx core scripts are combined which do not work together.

hF012 writes an environment variable %RAMDrv% into the PE, while fH027 does not do this any more.

Shortcuts are looking for %RAMDrv% ... etc.

You should try to upgrade your project completely to the latest nativeEx core

The only good news is that I can reproduce on my system.

But it will be a long way ...

Any good news is welcome!

At least I am now sure that I didn’t imagine the problem.
Knowing you, I am assured that you will find the adequate solution!

Time is not critical, as I have temporary solution with hF012,
working flawlessly replacing hF027 in LiveXP Project.

Thank you.

Fixed: Ad-Aware needs the environment variable %UserProfile% which was not delivered any more.

Now buildModel version 040 defines %UserProfile%

BTW: I recommend that you install the complete latest nativeEx_core in your project.
(better to find and fix some issues now than anywhen in the future, when old versions are not available any more!)

Thank you Peter! Everything is back to normal and I could start breathing again.

I have tested hF035 and BM040 in LiveXP Project and they work perfectly.

As a side effect of this testing I have noticed that size of nativeEx build is
2MB larger than LiveXP build. After investigation I have found that reason for
that are unpacked drivers sys files in nativeEx build which are packed in LiveXP.

Attached File  VirusCleaner.zip   1.46MB   194 downloadsAttached File  VirusCleaner.Script   2.32KB   190 downloads

Is this unpacking really necessary, as it increases size of the build considerably?

Another favorite application, VirusCleaner, is also refusing to update.
Updating newer worked and maybe, using experience from Ad-Aware,
you could make it work finally.

Thank you for your time and attention.
