Great tool, just one question, once you changed the background, how do you save it to replace the original??

The program works fine only when I try to open packed .DL_ files it gives an error. It cannot expand them.

However if I use windows its own expand.exe they can be upacked just fine. Anyone else experienced this? And how to resolve?

haha lol that could work also. but with a large collection you can just have the compressed ones. now since it cannot extract you have to keep the original unpacked one which in total over a large collection of files is quite larger then packed.

It's funny? isen't it? :)

How big is your collection? (my only 120MB)

Do you know "Make_Expand" or "Cab_Tool" ?

This way is very easy!

this program is impressive...allowing on the fly changes and even a simulation of the final product is really handy. If this helps, i'll note that all of the text on the billboard showed up in english correctly except for "Installation will complete in 39 minutes". Instead, it said:

Installation abgeschlossen in ungefahr 33 minuten

which i'm guessing to be german or something along those lines.

Hope this helps, keep it up.

I had the same problem until i copied the syssetup.dll file from my C drive after installing XP and putting it in the same folder as the program and hey presto all in English.

Thanks a million for making this program m8 i have now since made my own billboard to use and it worked from the first try i was really impressed!! Thanks again bro!

Hi Evry1!

I'm not sure if i am too late with this, since not much happening here anymore...

But anyways, i had a little spare time and was tired of the work needed to modify texts in the winntbbu.dll, so i put together a little VB-Application.

I tried to keep it as tight as possible, so if i am not mistaken all you will need to run this are the vb6 runtimes (which, if you dont run winxp anyway, can get from ms directly).

WinntbbuEd.bmp

Note, this is the first release, consider it Beta, there are limitations, much room for improvements, and surely there will be bugs. But i will try to work on this as my free time allows.

Ok, to make it bit more clear heres the list of current limitations:

In its current Version this editor only allows editing of
the following in Winntbbu.dll:

  *Colors
  *Fonts (Large & Small)
  *Headlines & Billboards
  *Step Texts
  *Pictures (HighColor & CDBoot only):
       Backgroundimage
       Step Images
       Top-Left-Logo
       Processinganimation

----------------------------------------------------------

Preview:

 The Preview is currently only available for small
 resolution setups. Only changes made to the appropiate
 Resources will take visual effect. Of Cource all made
 changes get written to the dll.

SysSetup:

 Though for visual completeness Texts from syssetup.dll,
 if present in the same directory as the selected
 winntbbu.dll, are displayed, they are, at least at the
 moment, not editable.

Pictures:

 There are no validation Checks on the Bitmaps
 that you might use, so have to take care yourself.

 All Pictures are limited to the use of Bitmap Images.

 Every Bitmap has a display in the pictures editor
 with its current size, hold the mouse over that,
 and you will get a tip with the size microsoft has
 intended.

Fonts:

 The font that you use MUST be present and registered
 at the time of setup.

 Since only Fontname and Fontsize are stored in the .dll
 even though the dialog for fonts allows it, you cant use
 styles like bold etc.

Dont Knows:

 There are still some aspects in the resources
 i dont know what they are good for, any additional
 information is welcome.

Comments & Suggestions are very welcome

Current Version 0.3.1

The Mad Guy has not been around in AGES. But I am the current host of the program. Please upload you winntbbu.dll somewhere so I can see what, if anything went wrong.

Also tell me what steps you took after replacing the winntbbu.dll file?

Hi!

I have download this software and it work perfectly win xp pro sp3 (32bit).

Now i have test with xp pro x64 and i receive an error (run-time error 380 / invalid property value).

Can you fix this problem?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards, DarkWolf :)

Edit: in my winxp x64 SP2 cd i've found this two files (one expanded and one compressed), i don't know the reason.

Maybe one of this is modded from sp2 integration?
