219 posts in this topic

:) I download the WinntbbuED,but i found if it could only modify the winntbbu file in english version.

there is a error dialog when i open a chinese version winntbbu.dll file.

I hope the WinntbbuED could sustain the other language.

Hi! Actually it does work with other languages, at least i tested it with english and german, but never with chinese, if you can share the winntbbu.dll that gives you that error, i will look into it and try to figure out whats different and why it gives you that error.

Hi All!

so i have some good news and some bad news,

the bad ones first, i havent completed syssetup.dll support yet, and research might still take some time

the good one, did some more changes to the editor, which imho are worth a new release.

so here we go:

V0.3.1 Mainly Bug Fixes

f - filename check for .dl_ is no longer case sensitive

f - case of filename is no longer changed after expanding

f - minor error in the internal preview, the internal preview
has an extension of 640x480 but the top left logo was the
medium size which is used with 800x600. Now the appropiate
Picture is used

f - makecab is now executed passing the path of the original
file to be compressed, before there was no path used.
Which let the compressed file end up somewhere on the system
instead of the directory of the uncompressed one

f - some minor grammar errors

f - bug with the color editing, where canceling didnt restore the
previous colors

c - Default selected Logo in the Edit Pictures Dialog is now
small, reflecting the change in the internal preview

c - Link Destionation for the first and Description for the second
link in the about Dialog. They are more accurate now

c - the order of the items on the extra menu. This should improve
handling a bit

c - the way the edit pictures dialog fetches its images, this was
neccessary to display the step pictures correctly. this was no
longer correct since the Transparency color was added

c - minor layout corrections to the Edit Pictures Dialog

c - Moved Cabbing Menus to an own submenu on Extras

c - most of the loading messages to reflect the actual filename

c - Release mechanism and release point, hopefully eliminating the
error 70

a - Auto Expand for syssetup.dl_ aswell
now, if no syssetup.dll but a syssetup.dl_ is found in the
same directory as the winntbbu.dll you will be able to let
WinntbbuED expand it automaticly if possible

a - two new options to settings to dis/enable syssetup expandation

a - sub menu to Extras to apply makecab on syssetup.dll if present

a - right click context menu to the pictures in the edit picture
dialog, you can save pictures from there now

a - clear option to the context menu for the pictures. you can
now remove the logos and the step images completely

n - clearing works in different ways, for the logo's they get
completely deleted from the resources, the step pictures are
replace with original size images in the transparency color, so
if you change that color you will have to reclear those images.
This is necessary because of the way winntbbu.dll handeles its
resources. This is the most compilant way possible.

Clearing of the Animation Images is NOT supported, winntbbu.dll
doesnt handle that, if you want to remove those, i suggest you
replace them with 1x1 pictures matching your background image
color.

Now Get your WinntbbuED 0.3.1 and enjoy

Mirrors:

Oki doki here we go:

First  launced v0.3.0

then opened up a copy of winntbbu.dll (that i have copied from my unattended winxp sp2 dir, to the WinntbbuED dir)

then i made some changes (doesent matter what kind of changes, i have the same error when i just save it over whitout have done ANY changes)

then i save it to the filename winntbbux.dll (note the X inte the end)

then i made some more changes to winntbbux.dll and try to save it again (over the already existing winntbbux.dll file)

This is where the error occurs.

Tell me if you want more info on hardware, WinXP sp2 patches i have installed, Programs i use or any other info neseccary to fix this.

EDIT: Ohh and in the settings of WinntbbdED i have ticked both options!

Thanx

This is very weird, i have hardly tried to reproduce this error,

using different winntbbu.dll's and making no or different changes.

I just cant raise this error :(

would you be willing to run a special debug version, if so i will build one

which will produce a special .log file, since i currently have no idea why a lock

is kept open!

Besides that it would be nice if you could look at this Post and get unlocker to verify it's the editor itself keeping the lock open.

Any help is highly appreciated on this one

Sure ill give it a shot no problem. just PM me when its done and ill test it for ya :)

But i think The WinntbbuED may be not Support the WindowXp in chinese.

I use many Winntbbu.dll ,but none of them could work.

This is my Winntbbu.dll :

http://rapidshare.de/files/3537204/WINNTBBU.DLL.html

and this is another one i download from the web ( I think its in english version )

http://rapidshare.de/files/3537328/WINNTBBU.DLL.html

and both are not work. The error is the same.

I need your help!

Thank you very much.

@All Experiencing Unknown Problems & Errors:

Here is a special Debug Version:

WinntbbuED_Debug.exe

To find and iron out the Bugs i cant reproduce, i will need your help,

so please get the Debug Version and post what happens when you run it

on those files that dont work, and if you can share those files here aswell that would be perfect.

The Debug Version provides extended error information for me, so either post the message or simply post a screenshot of it here. tia.

@those getting error 70:

you will find a WinntbbuED.log on your Systemdrives root, i need you to

post this log here, and as mentioned several times before on this topic

please get Unlocker and check which programs have a lock open on the file in the moment the error occours.

Hope we'll get further now.

Hi!

ok, i downloaded the files and checked they work just fine, so i suspect this could indeed be a problem caused by the os that WinntbbuEd is run on.

To narrow down on this problem i will require you to run the Debug Version i put online.

Please check this post here and i am sure we'll get this fixed aswell

WINNTBBU_msn.DLL

Could the error be because of naming? I allways put in a separate dir and name it WINNTBBU.DLL to edit

Hi!

i dont think so, the name did not matter so far while i was playing with the editor!

I can confirm this, the filename does not matter in anyway, except when i accidently used a case sensitive compare for the '.dl_' check, which has been fixed. The error darkstonexa described sounds like a missing resource id problem, but i cant check aslong as i dont have the .dll to work with
