Hamza,
The buttons will be on language of your default OS.
It's the native language of my current Windows 7 :)

yes, you can tweak my source code

Code: Select all

Run( @WindowsDir & "\system32\cmd.exe" )
MsgBox(262144, "How to install Porteus on your USB Flash drive", '1) Type your drive letter of USB Flash (for examle E:) and then presss “Enter”' & @CR & '2) Type “cd boot\scripts” then press “Enter”' & @CR & '3) Type “.\bootinst.bat”')
and then compile with AutoIt a new exe for this.

Sorry , you have not understand my request.

If one user does not want to disable his UAC , your installer will works with UAC enabled ?

Thanks a lot for sharing your works!

@Blaze: Excellent! Honestly, great job. It's very cool that you fixed the bug--sorry about getting on your work earlier. The Yes/No buttons look like they'll work really well. Oh, and, I don't really like UAC either, but it's part of something we as programmers have to deal with. Looks like we very well might end up with two installers, if not just yours! :)

(Believe it or not, PorteusInstaller will implement a similar, but different idea regarding UAC. One would run "Preflight", an installation prep program, then run "Installer" to do the actual installation of Porteus. Sometime later I'll get into details.)

agreimann, thanks for your suggestion.

all, I modified my script and i need your help.
Please to check up my grammar of English. Thanks.

Code: Select all

#NoTrayIcon
#RequireAdmin
Opt("TrayIconHide", 1)
$a = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System"
$b = "ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin"
$c = "REG_DWORD"
$d = "0"
$e = "PromptOnSecureDesktop"
$f = "EnableLUA"
$var1 = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System", "ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin")
$var2 = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System", "PromptOnSecureDesktop")
$var3 = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System", "EnableLUA")
$response = MsgBox(4, "Warning", 'This program will temporarily disable UAC. This may put your computer at risk.' & @CR & 'It necessary for install Porteus to a flah drive.' & @CR & '' & @CR & 'Note!' & @CR & '' & @CR & 'If UAC is active, your system will be rebooted for disable it.' & @CR & 'If is not, to you it will be accessible a command line interpreter.' & @CR & '' & @CR & 'When you have installed Porteus on your usb flash you can active UAC manually. You will need to type “uac” in the Start menu, click "Change User Account Control Settings" and restart.' & @CR & '' & @CR & 'Are you sure you want to continue?')
If $response = 6 then
If $var1 = 5 Then
	FileWrite (@CommonFilesDir & "\System\en-US\mui\log.txt","Text")
	RegWrite($a, $b, $c, $d)
EndIf
If $var2 = 1 Then
	FileWrite (@CommonFilesDir & "\System\en-US\mui\log.txt","Text")
	RegWrite($a, $e, $c, $d)
EndIf
If $var1 = 2 Then
	FileWrite (@CommonFilesDir & "\System\en-US\mui\log.txt","Text")
	RegWrite($a, $b, $c, $d)
EndIf
If $var3 = 1 Then
	FileWrite (@CommonFilesDir & "\System\en-US\mui\log.txt","Text")
	RegWrite($a, $f, $c, $d)
	SplashTextOn("Warning", 'UAC was disabled.' & @CR & 'Your OS will reboot.' & @CR & 'After reboot run the porteus2usb.exe installer again and follow instruction.', 310, 250, -1, -1, "", "", 24)
	Sleep(15000)
	Shutdown(2)
	Exit
EndIf
Run( @WindowsDir & "\system32\cmd.exe" )
MsgBox(262144, "How to install Porteus on your USB Flash drive", '1) Type your drive letter of USB Flash (for examle E:) and then presss “Enter”' & @CR & '2) Type “cd boot\scripts” then press “Enter”' & @CR & '3) Type “.\bootinst.bat”')
Else
	Exit
EndIf
I think this script is more correctly, but we need in two operations:

Code: Select all

Note!

If UAC is active, your system will be rebooted for disable it.
If is not, to you it will be accessible a command line interpreter.

My 1-st script is simple and it works for me and Windows 7 fine too.

All suggestions are welcome/welcomed :)

brokenman will be :shock: , when he will see a lot of new tool for Porteus :D

Posted after 29 minutes 29 seconds:
I have compiled with success my win installer.

But , I can't share the source code , because , It was compiled by a Software (buy for Porteus Community).

I will upload it somewhere , I will post the link.

My installer has all files included in an ISO. I think , it is an installer for Computer without Internet Connection.

The Log of included files.

@Hamza
wait a minute... 4th installer? it's too much for now :)
also - it must be opensource in case of further modifications. and one more thing: no paying for the software/art/whatever - it's a free community project based on work of volunteers.

@ Blaze ,

Try to tweak this code , it is from bootinst.bat

Code: Select all

echo This file is used to determine current drive letter. It should be deleted. >\%BOOTFLAG%
if not exist \%BOOTFLAG% goto readOnly

echo Wait please, searching for current drive letter.
for %%
Maybe , you can add a function for detect the current drive and run automaticly bootinst.bat.

I can buy anything software for Porteus.
