Script -- MSXML4 SP2 with latest update for use with HFSLIP
Posted 21 January 2006 - 06:22 PM
Yzowl, with all due respect, you do know your stuff with cmd scripts. However, the submission you PMd me a few months back for the HFEXPERT section didn't function properly. When I told you that it didn't work, you told me the same thing you told Tomcat76. When I asked you to test things first before submitting them to me, you got a little PO'd. But getting back to the scripts you do send, by modifying them a bit, they work nicely.

This is just a suggestion BTW.

Now I see one possible problem..the original filename of 887606 starts with msxml4sp which means that the file will be processed before the msxmlcab...
Well, I think there's one more thing to improve on HFSLIP: check the processed file versions and use the files with greater version numbers. :-) But this might require to rewrite it in C or so...

However, international users are still not covered because there's only an English version available of msxmlcab.exe. They need msxml.msi instead. At this point, HFSLIP embeds the SDK when you include msxml.msi. You can change that script section to install only the "viewer", but then what about the people who actually want to have the SDK? TommyP would have to add an additional page at the beginning of HFSLIP asking you what you want to do... "Press A for viewer, B for SDK, or C for both." Can you imagine?
On the other hand, you have to run the script in this thread only once and it's easier to maintain one file.
