Xplode will install the first program within the <Item> tag but wont install the rest and i cant figure out why, all of the programs listed are in the same directory as the one before it but yet Xplode says it cant find it.

Section of my code:
<item display="Installing Programs">
 	 <execute display="Ad-Aware SE Pro v1.05">
    <program>#SYSTEMDRIVE#\Install\Apps\ad-aware\aawsepro</program>
    <arguments>/s</arguments>
 	 </execute>
 	 <execute>
    <program> #SYSTEMDRIVE#\Install\Apps\ad-aware\kill.bat</program>
 	 </execute>
</item>

Error Messages From Logfile:
Executing tag: 'XPlode4(0).items(0).item(2).execute(0)'
         Install log: Running: 'E:\Install\Apps\ad-aware\aawsepro /s'
      
Executing tag: 'XPlode4(0).items(0).item(2).execute(1)'
         Install log: Running: ' E:\Install\Apps\ad-aware\kill.bat '
         Error during execution: File not found..

all of my applications are located in Install\Apps and some are in subfolders (as you can see above) but yet Xplode cant find it! Also, can i use Start /Wait in the <program> tag?

There is a space in your code:

...program> #SYSTEMDRIVE...


you can use any parameter as long as it is in the <parameter> tags
'm guessing you are referring to the start /wait command.

then your code should look like:
<execute display="program name here">
   <program>start</program>
   <arguments>/wait filename to start here</arguments>
  </execute>

Why geeks like computers: unzip, strip, touch, finger, grep, mount, fsck, more, yes,fsck,fsck,fsck,umount, sleep.

Just a question first, why do you need to use start /wait?, xplode waits before running the next program by default.

If you post your logs or xml file again please remove serial numbers etc, your Nero key is shown. :o

I noticed you have some bat files running, could you not incorporate the events in the batch files using the xplodes own commands, if not you could use
<hide>true</hide>
to prevent the dos box flashing up.

Whatever installs after java503.exe is creating this error

Error during execution: Invalid XML syntax - missing 'program' tag.


<fileiodelete>
should be
<fileio-delete>
and
</fileio-delete>

As for the files not found, the ones installed after ad-aware seem to be the problem, you are using the systemdrive variable, is something in your ad-aware kill.bat changing this value?

Hope you sort it :thumbup

Just realised xplode is not told the location of start.exe in your program tags

1. i didnt know that Xplode automatically waits for one program to end before it starts the next, is this implemented in 4.1 also? (yes, im using 4.1 cuz idk if i really wanna pay for Xplode yet, i want to get this to atleast work for me, before i upgrade)
2.after reading someones post i decided to implement the <hide> true</hide> into my code
3.thanks for noticing the fileio problem :) i wouldnt of caught that myself...
4. i have batch files running cuz a. it would be either to complicated to run in Xplode or b. what i want either doesnt work in 4.1 (on a side note i already have a fully working start.bat customized the way i want it so all i have to do is copy certain/lines/strings from it inot Xplode)
5. This is the contents of Kill.bat:
cmdow @ /HID
kill /z hh.exe
kill /z Ad-Aware.exe
copy %systemdrive%\install\ad-aware\settings.awc "%appdata%\lavasoft\ad-aware\settings.awc"
exit
5. this is giving me problems but idk why...

Don't use start.

As far as I know, start is build into the command prompt - there is no executable for it. And since XPlode doesn't use the command prompt to launch them, start does not exist.

Just put the program itself, and make sure <wait>true</wait> is in the execute tag. (It should wait by default, but hey, doesn't hurt to make sure.)

after i fixed that 95% of the stuff worked now heres the errors i do have:
Nero isnt hidden regardless of <hide>true</hide>
code:
<execute display="Nero Burning ROM v.6.6.0.12">
    <program>#SYSTEMDRIVE#\Install\Apps\nero-6.6.0.12\setupx.exe</program>
    <arguments>/SILENT</arguments>
    <hide>true</hide>
 	 </execute>

X-setup Pro does the same thing
code:
<execute display="XSetup Tweaking Utility">
    <program>#SYSTEMDRIVE#\Install\Apps\xsetuppro.exe</program>
    <arguments>/SILENT</arguments>
    <hide>true</hide>
 	 </execute>


if i cant use start then how do i execute a VB script? do i just put the location into the <program> tag or do i have to put the MS VB interpreter location in the <program> tag and the location in the<arguments> tag?

I'd guess that those programs are launching child processes themselves, and thus, they aren't told to be hidden by XPlode.
As for the vbscript, I'd guess you should use cscript to run it. Not entirely sure, I think that's what it'd called.

Nero isnt hidden regardless of <hide>true</hide>

the /silent will install without user interaction but you need
/no_ui
to hide the extraction process.

For Nero I use
<program>#SOURCEDRIVE#\Applications\nero\setupx.exe</program> <arguments>/no_ui /silent /noreboot</arguments> </execute>
and X-Setup Pro is an inno setup, or at least v6.5 is so
/verysilent /sp-

(i would of added this to my last post but sometimes the board wont let me edit my posts for some odd reason :wacko: )

it seems like the shortcuts dont work at all for me
my code:
<item>
  <execute display="Trillian v3.1 Pro">
    <program>#SYSTEMDRIVE#\Install\Apps\trillianv3.1.exe</program>
    <arguments>/S</arguments>
    <hide>true</hide>
    <fileio-shortcut display="Adding Tp Quicklaunch">

   	 <target>#programfiles#\trillian\trillian.exe</target>
   	 <workdir>#programfiles#\trillian</workdir>
    </fileio-shortcut>
  </execute>
</item>

working code i found from here:
<item>
  <fileio-shortcut display="Adding Desktop Shortcut" desc="Adds shortcut to Nero Express" configs="Testing">
 	 <link>#ALLUSERSPROFILE#\Desktop\Nero Express.lnk</link>
 	 <target>#SYSTEMDRIVE#\Program Files\Ahead\Nero\nero.exe</target>

You can't nest items like that.

Your fileio-shortcut is within and execute tage, but the example is within an item tag. The way XPlode4 works requires them all to be at the same level.
I've had plans to change this functionality, but due to time contraints from other projects, this has been on the backburner for some time.
For the moment, you'll need to move the shortcut outside the execute tag.

.... you can't nest items?

the <items> block needs to be in <XPlode4>, so:

<XPlode4>
+ <items>

etc.

<item> blocks need to be inside <items>, so:

<XPlode4>
+ <items>
+ + <item>

You see why yours isn't working?

That says you have an item inside an item inside an items tag.
Your XML says you have an item inside an item inside an items tag.

so im guessing the nesting can only go three deep :( so i guess i can say good bye to the idea of the program groups that i have.....

EDIT
i just noticed the shortcut thing does work :) as of right now i have no problems... but im sure ill be back posting about something else since this doesnt go nearly as smooth as batch file coding..... :}
