For some reason it just WON'T work...

Recommended Posts


first of all I'd like to thank Wraith for such a versatile utility! But I seem to have some (beginner?) troubles with it.

I've configuredmy include-Items.xml (see the attachment), and my include-StdConfig.xml (also attached).

There are 2 main possibilities I think, that may be causing all this:

1) I've included variables, but also variables that use variables. I don't know if this is causing the problems.

2) I was trying to use an include-Items.xml (I know I can rename it...) WITH the 'configs' entry in the 'item' tag, while I was using GFXinstall. But when I retried with SelectInstall, it didn't work neither!

So here are my .xml files you need to find my problem. (no registration information is included)

Thanks in advance!

First, could you post a log-file, those things are _really_ handy. :)




  <item display="Add user accounts" image="#XPLODE#\images\windbg.gif">

Add the "<items>" tag I inserted

  <item display="7-zip" image="#XPLODE#\images\7zip.gif">

  <execute display="7-zip #V_7ZIP#" desc="#INST# 7-zip #V_7ZIP#" configs="Default,BTS">




please note the highlighted entry should be "program". This is in ALL your program tags, so you need to do a find-and-replace. :)

  <fileio-copy display="Patch CloneCD" desc="Patching CloneCD" configs="BTS">


Highlighted entry should be "from".

  <item display="

  <item display="Daemon Tools" image="#XPLODE#\images\daemontools.gif">

Empty entry, remove it.

  <fileio-copy display="Patch GetDataBack for NTFS" desc="Patching GetDataBack for NTFS" configs="BTS">


Should be "from".

  <execute display="IrfanView #V_IRFANVIEW#" desc "#INST# IrfanView #V_IRFANVIEW#" configs="Default,BTS">


    <arguments>/silent /folder="%ProgramFiles%\multimedia\IrfanView" /desktop=0 /group=1 /allusers=1 /assoc=1</arguments>


  <execute display="IrfanView plug-ins #V_IRFANVIEW#" desc "#INST# IrfanView plug-isn#V_IRFANVIEW#" configs="Default,BTS">

Twice to be replaced to desc="

  <item display="Partition Magic" image="#XPLODE#\images\partitionmagic.gif">

  <execute display="Partition Magic #V_PARTITIONMAGIC#" desc "#INST# Partition Magic #V_PARTITIONMAGIC#" configs="Default,BTS">


  <item display="Shockwave" image="#XPLODE#\images\shockwave.gif">

  <execute display="Shockwave" desc "Installing Shockwave 10" configs="Default,BTS">


  <execute display="QuickTime settings" desc="#IMP# QuickTime settings" configs="BTS">

    <program>C<execute display="SmartFTP settings" desc="#IMP# SmartFTP settings" configs="BTS">


what the?

I can't correct more without a log-file. The other two files seem correct.

GOD BLESS YOU :thumbsup:

And... **** those are stupid mistakes!!! :blushing: A lame excuse, but it must be the 450 lines in one day that made me overlook it :|

Thanks :)

P.S.: it DID work now :D

Open the XML file in IE. It should tell you about such XML based errors and just about where they are. (Unended quotes, nonclosed tags and such)
