HELP! Auto mapping drives! Drivers! and Startup folder!
Posted 11 August 2008 - 05:37 PM
*****1) Why can't I just find an easy way to automatically map a drive. I've searched the forums and mostly I have found programs that map manually after boot. With BartPE I just edited the startnet and it worked. As far as I can tell you can't do that with v12.3. I like the map drive program and know I will use it so I modified the map drive plugin and created an automapdrive.cmd. I repackage and reattached the files to the plugin. I can run the batch file (which contain just a simple net use command) manually from the x:\Program Files\MAPDRIVE\ dir after it's started but it doesn't autorun like it should.
I added the following to the plugin
but it doesn't run.
*****2) With version 3.1.10a (and some previous) I was able to quickly add drivers to my PE by just dumping them into a driver folder and when I built my CD they would automatically be added to the disk. It sounds like with the latest version you are the verge of this or maybe I'm mistaken and you can do this already. If so please let me know how.
*****3) I used XPE for BartPE (most did). I was able to easily add items to the desktop and start menu (even more so when I started using reatogo). Is there a method for adding items to the start menu/startup folder using BSexplorer? I'm having a hard time even finding the syntax to add items to the startup folder.
This product is awesome and using the winbuilder is really nice. The only thing I'm worried about is driver support.
Any help on any of these topics would be great.

To use the new scripts you need the latest winbuilder. get it from here (just winbuilder.exe needs to be copied over your vistape installation)
Adding Startmenu and desktop item works by Add_Shortcut see here http://vistape.net/vistape-api.html
This works the same way for bsexplorer and explorer shell..

The only thing now I need is the ability to password protect the boot. On my bartpe I had the press any key but it was then followed by a password prompt. (I used the bcdw plugin v2.0a1 which allow you to specify a password). I've searched the forums but most of the info is on grub4dos. I don't see a way to add a pasword to it. Any help on this would be appreicated.
p.s. is there way to prebuild the infcache? would that speed up the boot process?

please post the changes you made to the automap script, i will add domain settings to mine too
password protection can be done with the shell, but i never used it...there exists a script for that

I've searched the forums but can't find the password thing. I did find some stuff about BDCW but I can't find a script that shows me how it might be done. Any help would be great!

hmm, i believe grub4dos does not support paswords, so you could use bcdw with vistape but this is a bit of work ...
Read here :
Of course, if there are security concerns, adding a password protection MUST be done in grub4dos, otherwise one can access it's command line and boot virtually anything....

but it does not work. Assume I mapped the network drive as Z drive. I have a file hdtune.exe in the Z drive. How do I launch the hdtune immediately after the automap script is executed. Do I need a separate script for that?
