New distro and setup managment

Post by DOSProfi » Fri Dec 10, 2004 6:12 pm

hi, my distro gets in beta state ( for long time ago I announced the first pre-alpha via the mailing list ) I have now included 7-Zip and MinGW, useful programs that work with ReactOS, and have a question about setup management:

How can the feature implemented, that support "SP_COPY_FORCE_IN_USE" in setupapi, for Update like applications? I think in winnt like OS's the files are copied in the dllcache directory, but I'm not sue of this.

You can find my distro at www.realdos.de

The tool is witten in ( MSV ) C under GPL. Currently this tool has an installation and network module. The network module works currently only for pcnet ( VMware ) network. You can try it out at:

Your distro sounds pretty good, I had been wondering if either of those worked, its good to hear that both of those do infact run.

I have completed the last Beta of my ReactOS Distribution. Now ScummVM (and sdl.dll) is included and I have extended my installation and configuration tool (RICO - GPL) with an installation and update modul. A modul for the screen - settings is currently in work (look at the source). For the release candidates I plan an application and device database (according to the last SVN Snapshot) and a faq-section on my site.

You can download the Beta and RICO Sourcecode on:

Are you only working for your own project or are you including your work in the svn tree?

Currently I work for my own, but if I can add it to the svn tree, it would be nice.

Hey, why not join the developer team? There are a lot of userland applications needed for the 0.3 version I suppose.
A good distribution with some good apps are needed, but skilled developers are needed badly. :)

Get on the mailing lists, and then goto the IRC channel and when there are alot of defs there, and it's not too rough, ask what to do.

A new version of RealDOS Workstation is now available. I extend RICO (RealDOS Installation and COnfiguration) with a language change feature. This feature changes the language in the ISO File. Currently it can only change the RealDOS Workstation ISO File, because I used a fixed position to change it. In the next days I extend it with the possibility to change any ReactOS Image and release the Source Code.

To provide Updates it would be necessary to implement the SP_COPY_FORCE_IN_USE style in setupapi.dll. If nobody working on it I would try to implement it.

The RealDOS Workstation is available at the usual place.
