HFSLIP - Test releases

Recommended Posts

If you saw strange characters in control panel, then it is because hfcleanup (current fileset only from Mar 11th or so) isn't being parsed correctly. The old hfcleanup fileset left little to be desired. Delete any reduction files that Oleg2 made and use the ones posted on FDV's site.

I'll tackle that after I am done stomping HFEXPERT/WIN.

Well that was fun :puke:

I started with this structure:

-HFEXPERT (just subfolders)
--APPREPLACEMENT (empty)
--WIN (just subfolders)
---CURSORS (just cursors)
---FONTS (just fonts)
---SYSTEM32 (misc stuff)

And then took these steps:

1) Deleted S32 and a similarly dorked TXTSETUP as before.

2) Left S32 out and also deleted CURSORS...similar TXTSETUP as before.

3) Left S32 & CURSORS out and also deleted FONTS...similar TXTSETUP as before.

So for #3, I just had this:

-HFEXPERT (just subfolders)
--APPREPLACEMENT (empty)
--WIN (empty)

And I *STILL* got a dorked TXTSETUP. So then I deleted HFEXPERT *entirely*, even though it just had empty folders, and HFSLIP 18d ran like a charm.

WTFO? :crazy:

I am pretty sure that I have run this before with just an empty HFEXPERT/APPREPLACEMENT and not had issues, but I will test that now. It looks like the mere presence of an empty HFEXPERT/WIN causes HFSLIP to vomit on screen.

There is no such thing as a dumb question with me :)

I am positive that there are no folders with spaces anywhere in HFEXPERT.

I do have the pleasure of reporting that 18d has fixed the oddly-named control panel entry. Whatever that was, it is gone now. 18d w/o HFEXPERT installed like a dream.

Running HFSLIP with empty HFEXPERT/APPREPLACEMENT now...

Problem confirmed.

HFSLIP18d=OK

HFSLIP18d+HFEXPERT/APPREPLACEMENT(empty)=OK

HFSLIP18d+HFEXPERT/WIN(empty)=dorked TXTSETUP

So on an otherwise OK config, just adding the HFEXPERT/WIN folder causes TXTSETUP to be completely borked. Error Report/TXTSETUP attached.

That's a nice find. If you still get a borked up txtsetup.sif with 18e, I'll do something special.

I'm hungry now so I'll be back in 30 or something. :)

Bad txtsetup. Echo a [sourceDisksFiles] into txtsetup.sif in the first line of the hfcleanup. DOSNET needs lots of love too.

So I basically remove the "diagnostic" part in front of the existing line?

You talkin' 'bout hfcleanup?

18E + HFCLEANUP = missing NT5.CAT

Reloading my HFCLEANUP from scratch in case I put one of those HFCLEANUP addons in there and forgot about it. Those things give me nothing but trouble!

But the HFEXPERT/WIN thing seems fixed. Thanks for all the help :thumbup
