You should read the very first post of this thread (http://www.msfn.org/...showtopic=70209). It explains that for program to work you need a) program itself B) .xml file with config to the program

There are default settings in there but you need to modify them to suite your needs. You can also try reading thru the whole thread and see how ppl managed to get it work. Maybe next versions will be more userfriendly but for now it is what it is ;)

Thanks.

Hey MadBoy! :) Nice to see you back in action. I checked this topic every week to see some updates. I'm glad you didn't forsake the project! It is still unmatched and there is no other solution :) Keep up the good work!

Thanks, I guess option to have notification when something new is posted would be better idea then constantly checking last post every now and then ;-)
Some time ago MSFN forum blocked .pl users so couldn't log in for longer while.
Hopefully I'll find some time to add more features later on :-)

Yes, I know. A notification would probably be more efficient ;)

Unfortunately, I stumbled upon a nasty bug since your new update.. :unsure: Care to take a look at it?
I uploaded a screenshot of the error and hardware_config.xml as an attachment.

I knew that using newest Autoit without full retesting would be bad idea. I'll take a look today later on or so. Gotta download some driver packs since it seems it crashed during creation of Driver DB. Probably some function changed return values or so.

Do you have a lots of drivers in that directory ? Can you pack it up and send me it (or well better only .inf's) and not drivers included but with whole directory structure if possible ?

Great job for fixing the problem! :thumbup
But, while this problem is solved, another one just pops up :blink:
The hardware-window buttons doesn't get pressed anymore, see the attached screenshot.

Well, I have to report that this totally does not work on Spanish Windows XP.
Database is not created, program set in automatic mode but I still have to click every darn hardware wizard.
Besides that, drivers are not installed at all, even though they are available in the specified path.
Second run of the program and the error devices are not detected anymore, but they are still present in device manager.
It could be a fantastic utility but this one needs some work.
Thanks anyway.

Cheers
Escorpiom.

Well I do hope you have logging enabled. Send me the log file, send me the config file. Also set the program in debug mode and run it again Go to http://pro-solutions.pl/projects/ and get newest version (nothing fixed) just with more debug output for Hardware wizard. As for having no error devices in second run it could be due to not finished process of redetcting devices. You can reboot or go to device manager and press F5 or refresh. This should get them to state to what they were before in program.

Ok, think I've got it going now. Does work on Spanish Windows XP :yes:

There is something easily overlooked. When there is no hardware database file, the program won't make one in automatic mode.
In manual mode, when there is no hardware db file, the program ask for the correct path.
To get it going I did the folowing:

Put a copy of Pro-S on the server share were my drivers are (lots!) and execute it on the server in manual mode.
Let the program create the hardware database file ("action" menu) and after that exit.
Now we have a valid hardware .db on the server.
In my unattended XP install include a copy of Pro-S and the xml config file.
After the XP install finishes, Pro-s is executed from GuiRunOnce.
As I have most common network drivers integrated, the very first thing is mapping a network drive X.
The xml config file is pointing to the hardware db on the share, this is a valid path and so Pro-s uses the db.

To be sure I downloaded the latest version. It ran all the way and did not ask me once to install some device.
The whole process took only a few minutes and if correctly setup, this will save a lot of time.

It would be a better solution to let the program create the .db file (in automatic mode) if not found.
For now we will have to create one first.

Cheers and thanks for sharing your proyect.

It's good that you managed to figure it out. Actually after your first post I've looked at the code (trying to see what your problem might be) and found out that the db isn't created when it's first time started.
So now(from 2.0.0.24) if the db is not found (file doesn't exist) when the program is run (either manual or auto mode) program will ask if you want to create it. Hope it will be more user friendly now :-) Perhaps I (or someone) should make nice .chm documentation / tutorials for different scenarios :-) Maybe I'll make one some day!

Version 2.0.0.23 (non-public)
- Added more debugging lines in Hardware Wizard
Version 2.0.0.24 (public)
- Changed behavior for first time start of program for drivers database (or when drivers db doesn't exists) should be a bit more user friendly now
- Removed Loading screen (was too ugly) ;)

Enjoy and report bugs as always (preferably with log file in debug mode, and with XML attached).

Download: Pro-S Hardware Installer 2.0.0.24

MadBoy, forgot my problem? It is still unsolved in your latest release. :(
I attached the XML and logfile. See the screenshot which I posted earlier, which is basically the same.
