Mhhh Strange!

Can you be a bit more specific?!

or share your winntbbu.dll you are trying to edit?

Cant reproduce that error with mine.

can u make one for the boot screen?

Maybe i could, but i wont.

I dont see any sense in doing so.

There are already tools covering it.

Have you tried BootEditor 1.0.1 which is freeware ?

And besides that there are several other tools for this task, some free, most shareware.

Sure, this is actually one I d/l from here and the pic has been changed already. I did try it on several more I have and get the same subscript out of range

http://www.maxxpsoft.com/uploads/Chrisitina.rar

Should it not have a pic already or is it possible to change again. Well you can test with that one, maybe run in debug..

BTW someone else i know that pointed me to this has same problem.

Here's a suggestion for a new feature:

1. Add option to right-click a resource (a bitmap resource or text resource) from the preview window and save to a BMP or TXT file...

This would make WinntBBuEd a very easy to use WINNTBBU resource hacker...

I also hope that SYSSETUP.DLL becomes editable and text is displayed in English...

text is displayed in English

When I open one of my .dll's it does display in English, I would think your language.

@TheMadGuy

I don't get an error if I open a WINNTBBU.DLL without a picture already.

I mean the SYSSETUP.DLL text, it appears to be hard-coded to German

Ok but those are Not editable fields right now according to the readme

I have them all in same folder when I'm messing with them.

@TheMadGuy

I found that after copying to my %windir%\System32 I no longer get that Error 9.

I created a right click on .dll and .dl_ to just open the WinntbbuED Editor but can't make it open the file I'm right clicking on. Are there any commandline switches? Maybe later on as its in its early day's.

EDIT: Some get the error and some don't.

Hi!

Thanks for your suggestions.

to 1. Added to the ToDo List, for now with low priority though

to 2.

from the Changelog of 0.2.0:

a - if syssetup.dll is located in the same dir as the winntbbu.dll
    then now the two strings from it in the preview are actually
    fetched from syssetup.dll (though no option to edit them yet)

so if you put winntbbu.dll & syssetup.dll in the same dir, all strings should be whatever language your .dll's are.

And editing them is on the ToDo List, it will come..., but i'm still researching on the used ID's

But plz consider, this is a project i do in my spare time, i'll appreciate every suggestion and consider it, but realising may take some time.

Hi maxXPsoft!

with the help of the .dll you shared i could pinpoint the problem, it's caused by .dll's where BitMap Resources are completely deleted. (Missing ID's)

I will fix this issue in the next release.

As for the command line switches, there are none in the current version, but i put that on the ToDo list aswell.

Thnx for taking the time to test around.

P.S.: Be sure you have disabled Windows File Protection if you play in %windir%\System32, elseway you might get fuzzy results.

What i ment was by pointing me to a non working .dll, i could find and eliminate the bug.

Thnx 4 that

Hi All!

Boy, have i got something up my sleeve :D

How about a new version?

Yeah?

OK!

Here goes:

V0.3.0 Getting a REAL Preview

f - the 'Runtime error 9 Subscript out of range' Bug
    this was caused when BitMap Resources where completely
    deleted and the resource ID was missing in the dll

a - My whole Pride: REAL PREVIEW
    In the extras menu you can call Real Preview in three
    different sizes. Its a Previewmode that actually uses the
    code from within winntbbu.dll to render the Preview.
    You can't get any more accurate :)
   
n - Do me a faviour, READ the Read this first!
    I dont want to see any questions that are already answered
    in there!

a - a Statusbar to the main window
    it shows the version of the currently loaded winntbbu.dll and
    also the version, if found, of the syssetup.dll or otherwise
    that it was not found.

a - Commandline passing of a Filename, now you can directly pass the
    name of the file you want to edit to WinntbbuED e.g.:
    WinntBBUED "f:\xp\cd\i386\winntbbu.dll"

a - 'Shell Extension' submenu to the 'Extras' menu
    here you can (un)register WinntBBUEd to the Explorer context menu
    for .dll and .dl_ files

This kept me quite busy, but it was worth it :D

Go grab WinntbbuED 0.3.0 right now!

Mirrors:

OLD VERSION REMOVED

hmm might take me a bit to get the right click going on it and update the reg. Should have worked with the \"%1\"

Thats an Easy one:

You only need the \ infront of double quotes when you are having REG_SZ Keys as plain text in your reg file, the command string you set is a REG_EXPAND_SZ in hex form, where you dont need the backslash.

Taken from your earlier post it should, to make it working, look like this:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\...\shell\Edit\command]
@=hex(2):25,00,77,00,69,00,6e,00,64,00,69,00,72,00,25,00,5c,00,73,00,79,00,73,\
 00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,57,00,69,00,6e,00,6e,00,74,00,62,00,\
 62,00,75,00,45,00,44,00,30,00,32,00,30,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,65,00,20,00,22,\
 00,25,00,31,00,22,00,00,00

Note: this is just a correction of your earlier post, it would still point to %windir%\system32\WinntbbuED020.exe "%1" and i replaced the classname with "..." above, since its the same for dllfile and dl_file

Hope you get the idea anyways.

And you can also use the (Un)Register option in the editor itself if you like :D

Ok I dropped the \ from mine and it did work so corrected above. It didn't with the .dl_ because it errors out and don't expand.

Are you saying it will set the keys itself now? with the Register option

Yep I got a "File you are trying to is not a valid WINNTBBU.DLL file" on the .dl_
