Hi all ,
When I get time, I want to have a dabble with this program but I do not know the first thing about script writing so in a sense it might be better to read Nuno's script writing tutorials first or would it confuse issues in respect of MakeScript?
Yes ,It's better to have some base before
I have read somewhere that there is an api thingy that is supposed to make any scripts written with this conformity, forwards compatible with future versions of Winbuilder. So scripts written today will work equally with WinBuilders in the future? So what is the api convention, so if scripts are written they will not eventually become obsolete?
Yes, MakeScript can build script with api or the old methode ,then you can learn more winbuilder language
Will this program write a script for any program or are there limitations in its usage.
It write simple script with or without interface
with or without shortcut for desktop,startmenu,sendto,quicklauch and autostart
with or without association
with or without registry (using the program reg2wbs of psc)
possibility to add 5 other program (shortcut in startmenu) from the same or a different folder of the 1st program
possiblity to add file in any folder (Window or I386,System32,etc..)
What is classified as a source file, is it the unpacked file before it is installed program on the PC, does it have to be installed & what about registry entries etc.
The source is the program.exe for which you want make a script (example for AutoIt, the program.exe is AutoIt3.exe)
MakeScript don't import automatic registry you must export registry entry by your hand, it simply convert it (with psc program) for winbuilder
I have read that it is better to use SFX format to pack the files how is this done?
MakeScript don't buid the SFX it only make 7z file but result is exactly the same
Is the standalone Makescript the best varient to use to start with?
I am not a good doc writer
When i got more time i will make a video tutorial
If someone have an idea which free program to use as example
The program must have multi folder, multi app or batch file , some association ,need registry entry,need some file in system32 or I386 folder
and i build the script and demo with MakeScript
