Jaclaz:

Yes, I miss the progress windows to display the overall extract operation - you know me and the need for eye candy features.. :thumbsup:

I really mean command line options for an unattended selfburner with a progress bar and simply use:
SelfBurner.exe "myImage.iso" "mySFX.exe"

And isn't imageburn also embedded inside Selfburner? :tabletalk:

The more reasons to keep everything tidy inside a single file on my humble opinion.. :D

------

btw: nice suggestion with the improved sfx - will keep it in mind.

:D

hi guys, so tell me, want me to update or not?
And about that reduced functions version, that would be great...
also a smaller one would be cool, and anyone has ideas for the options dialog?...
What about shell integration? some more imageburn options?

let me know guys...

Damian666


A progress Bar at the bottom of dialog box to show the progress on a large file
would be great improvement.
but do not mess it up as your present version works perfectly. :thumbsup:

many thanks .
Regards Ben

Thank you Damian
nearly as good as Dennis Ritchie :D
My system is XP
and I would not bother about Win 98
those old computers can not handle these sort of powerful
programs.
these days one needs .NET2 to run things.
I am going to down load your latest version and test it
tomorrow
thanks again for your time and others for their brilliant ideas.
=========================================
I had this C# code snippet somewhere on my PC it might come handy for DIY type programming.


System.Diagnostics.Process P = new System.Diagnostics.Process();

P.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
P.StartInfo.FileName = "cmd.exe" ;
P.StartInfo.Arguments = "/k dir *.* " ;
P.Start();

The /k tells the command window to remain until user pressed the close
button or typed exit.

if you put the above code in the click method of a Button it will execute a program
e.g. "dir *.* " or "notepad.exe"
=========================================================

Regards Ben
:D

but thats it man, it should work on all NT-based OS's, but it doesnt...
I agree with you, everyone seems to hate the .net libraries and stuff.
but they make so much stuff possible :thumbsup:

Not that i use it in this program.
btw, that screenshot is from a non-released version man.
you wont find it here.

not untill, i fix the problem, or come up with a different approach...

thanx

As I see it, since the "new" version has mainly an enhanced look, but works only on XP, nothing prevents from releasing it, specifying that it is working under XP (and Vista? :thumbsup:) only.

The above will cover however say 90% of NT users, and maybe 99% of those that fiddle with AudioCD's.

Dinosaurs like me can well use on Win2k either the older version or just the original CASBAH.

hmm, i do agree with you, BUT it looks kind of stupid to drop support for older OS's because of some
new look you know...

i will think about it dude, i will let you know so you can update the first post if needed :thumbsup:

ok, fixed it, just put in a OS check, on 2000 it will skip the creation of the eyecandy, but still work.
on XP, it works with eyecandy :lol:

as soon as jaclaz has put it up, the first post wil be updated.

The app is working on 2K too.

(just in case someone double clicks on it accidentally)

Released version is now 1.4.0, and includes latest programs:

CD Selfburner Version 1.4.0.0
7Zip Version 4.57.0.0

ImgBurn Version 2.4.1.0

Hello Again,

I put my audio Cd and used Ultra ISO to create an Iso of that Audio Cd
tools>make CD/DVd ....>output format (bin/cue)
and it made 2 files a Audiocd.iso.bin file (size 784 MB)
and in same directory a Audiocd.iso.CUE file (size 1016 bytes)

i entered the .CUE file as source and files in destination path in the second text box
and clicked create
by the way the option button does not work
it started and the progress bar kept getting full then empty
then filled up again then empty
I lost count 50,60 times or more?
any way the only useful purpose of that progress bar is
it indicates to user that application is not hanging.

but for a while I thought it has gone to an iteration
but waited 45 minutes until it finished
and more writing came up saying all Done.
the file Audiocd.iso.exe (649 Mb appeared)
I double clicked it and the 7zip startpromt dialog box popped up
I did not burn Cd but I am sure it works

it would be better if possible to have a bar progressing in relation to
Percentages on the DOS (black screen of Jacalaz/Skewteck prog )
having said that Nero does the same thing 3 or 4 progress bares keep getting filed and then emptied in Nero too.

any way well done and thank you
Regards Ben

I wanted to distribute a Ubuntu self-burning image but I have a request:

Would it be possible to display a menu with a small text file that we specify (introduction to what it will burn, mentioning for example that they will need to place a CD on their burner) and a simple YES/NO dialog buttons on the bottom of this menu to allow them for either proceeding with the burn or quit (using default windows text buttons since this is meant for a non-english distribution or simple green V or red X buttons to be understandable)

Can this be done?


Thanks! ;)

I guess that the enhanced 7zip may provide something like that, but maybe it would be easier to write a small "prompting" window in Auto-it to be decompressed and run before decompressing the CD image?

Nuno can you describe exactly what you would like?

And I would be curious to know at least one PC user that cannot understand Yes/No and needs red crosses or green check marks)...;)

I'm very meticulous about the UI and I wouldn't like to display a presentation text in Portuguese language to later see a YES / NO set of buttons.

Graphics are very universal and language independent.


Nuno can you describe exactly what you would like?



Situation for the end user:

- User double-clicks on self burnable image
- A text is displayed before any decompressing takes place
- Text explains exactly what this executable does and therefore asks him if the program should continue
- The program continues, decompresses images and prepares to burn.
- Or the program simply exists if the user is not interested in continuing


Situation for developer

- Developer writes introduction on his own language
- Create sfx ISO with this text included
- Makes the sfx ISO availabled to others.


--------

On my case, I've written an article on our yearly magazine about open source alternatives (ubuntu, openoffice, firefox) that could be used in a enterprise environment to replace the microsoft titans (windows, msOffice, IE) and the target audience needs to have as much information available since this is something completely new for most of them. That's why I'm so worried about including as much instructions as possible.
