Dear,

A new iexpress package of kixtart 4.10 beta 1 (build 84) release
has been created.

Also all other iexpress packages are upgraded.
New functions:
  • it can show a MessageBox during the installation of any kind of package.
    it is only necessary to define the environment variable kix-show for
    activation.
    To prevent a box each time we will show only a box
    - by installation of new kixtart release.
    - by installation of another type of kixtart (kix32.exe / wkix32.exe)
    - by an incomplete set of kixtart files. a complete set contain: kix32.exe/wkix32.exe, kx16.dll, kx32.dll, kx95.dll
    The other environment is kix-debug, which will create the debug file c:\kixtart.logand which will show other MessageBox.
  • now the check-file c:\kix???.ok file will show the build version
    of your KiXtart release.
  • only the actual check-file will remain on your local drive.
Current availablepackages
  • kix362update.exe (kix32.exe)
  • kix363update.exe (kix32.exe)
  • kix400update.exe (kix32.exe)
  • kix401update.exe (kix32.exe)
  • kix402update.exe (kix32.exe)
  • kix410update.exe (kix32.exe)
  • kix362registry.exe (kix32.exe)
  • kix363registry.exe (kix32.exe)
  • kix400registry.exe (kix32.exe)
  • kix401registry.exe (kix32.exe)
  • kix402registry.exe (kix32.exe)
  • kix410registry.exe (kix32.exe)
  • wkix400update.exe (wkix32.exe)
  • wkix401update.exe (wkix32.exe)
  • wkix402update.exe (wkix32.exe)
  • wkix410update.exe (wkix32.exe)
An example of new kix???.ok
code:
[Kixtart NT4]
kix32.exe 4.02=2002/04/10 00:27:53 -> 2002/01/18 00:00:00 204800 (build 071)
kx16.dll 4.02=2002/04/10 00:27:53 -> 2001/11/19 00:00:00 47104
kx32.dll 4.02=2002/04/10 00:27:54 -> 2001/11/19 00:00:00 49152
kx95.dll 4.02=2002/04/10 00:27:55 -> 2001/11/19 00:00:00 49152
Kixtart 4.02=installation completed at 2002/04/10 00:27:55 (+kix32.exe +kx16.dll +kx32.dll =kx95.dll) to "c:\winnt\"
Kixtart 4.02 mode=registry

greetings.

btw: running a kix???update will remove existing file associations
with .k2k, .udf, .kix and .scr.

btw: we have also create wkix???update.exe which will not influence the existing
file associations. it is related to the WKIX32.EXE file.

Dear,

All our iexpress package for updating your clients has been updated.
Issues
  • we create the check file also in %windir% directory.
    this check file kix???.ok.
    the problem was that in some situations the file c:\kix???.ok couldn't
    be created. for backwards compatibility we create two check files
    - c:\kix???.ok
    - %windir%\kix???.ok
    btw: we are using "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\Windir" value.
  • during the creation of file associations with kix32 we aren't using
    the external kixedit.reg file. it is using internal kixtart func-
    tions.
  • to prevent also problems with the installation of c:\kixedit.ico file,
    we move it also to the %windir% directory.
  • the control-file is restyled and as kixtart users you can easily read
    information from it.
    an example:
    code:
    [KiXtart]
    kix32.exe=2002/06/18 20:19:09 -> 2002/05/29 16:59:06 225280 (build 095)
    kx16.dll=2002/06/18 20:19:09 -> 2001/08/27 20:17:29 47104
    kx32.dll=2002/06/18 20:19:09 -> 2002/03/29 12:38:08 49152
    kx95.dll=2002/06/18 20:19:09 -> 2001/11/19 05:00:00 49152
    KiXtart=installation completed at 2002/06/18 20:19:09 (+kix32.exe +kx16.dll +kx32.dll +kx95.dll) to "c:\windows\"
    KiXtart release=ME -> kix 4.10 Release Candidate 2
    KiXtart mode=registry

    btw: the old format was
    code:
    [Kixtart ME]
    kix32.exe 4.10 Beta 1=2002/05/01 17:04:13 -> 2002/04/03 00:00:00 221184 (build 084)
    kx16.dll 4.10 Beta 1=2002/05/01 17:04:13 -> 2001/08/27 00:00:00 47104
    kx32.dll 4.10 Beta 1=2002/05/01 17:04:13 -> 2002/03/29 00:00:00 49152
    kx95.dll 4.10 Beta 1=2002/05/01 17:04:13 -> 2001/11/19 00:00:00 49152
    Kixtart 4.10 Beta 1=installation completed at 2002/05/01 17:04:13 (+kix32.exe +kx16.dll +kx32.dll +kx95.dll) to "c:\windows\"
    Kixtart 4.10 Beta 1 mode=registry

  • we have rename the debugging file from "c:\kixtart.log" to "%tmp%\kixtart.txt".
    btw: this file will created when environment variable "kix-debug" exist.
    btw: by problem you should mail also this file to us.
    an example of it
    tuesday 2002/06/18 20:19:09- kixtart 4.10 Release Candidate 2/3.03e script starting.

    -
    -Intel Pentium III (0 Mhz, memory 511 MB)
    -

Still the special environment variable exist
  • kix-debug
    it creates a logfile in your temporary directory. name is %tmp%\kixtart.txt.
  • kix-show
    it shows information about installation progress by some MessageBox's.
Your logon BATch file can be something like:
code:
@echo off
%0\..\kix410update.exe /q
kix32 %\..\your_script.kix
@echo

or
code:
@echo off
%0\..\kixcheck.exe
if errorlevel 1 %0\..\kix410update.exe /q
kix32 \\server\netlogon\your_script.kix
@echo off

or
code:
@echo off
if not exist %windir%\kix410.ok %0\..\kix410update.exe /q
if not exist %windir%\kix410.ok goto net
kix32 \\server\netlogon\your_script.kix
goto end
:net
\\server\netlogon\kix32 \\server\netlogon\your_script.kix
:end
@echo off

We were using our tool kixcheck in above logon BATch files
which return an errorlevel 1 when kixtart binaries aren't installed
in a correct way.
The output of "kixcheck" is:
  • for a correct installation:
    code:
    KixCheck 1.05 (c) scripting@wanadoo.nl 2001

    Found as C:\WINDOWS\KIX32.EXE (29-05-2002 16:59:12 225280 bytes)

    path c:\windows;c:\windows\command

    KiXtart environment: complete.

  • for an incomplete the output look like:
    code:

    path c:\windows;c:\windows\command

    KiXtart environment: incomplete. remove "c:\kix*.ok" files.

greetings.

Dear,

Based on Lonkero reaction we have modify our tool a little bit.
It wasn't possible to verify wkix32.exe version.
Now we have add an option to it.
With the call
  • kixcheck.exe
    it will verify for the kix32, kx16.dll, kx32.dll & kx95.dll files.
    it is the default selection.
    the output will be
    code:
    KixCheck 2.01 (c) scripting@wanadoo.nl 2002

    Found as C:\WINDOWS\KIX32.EXE (08-07-2002 20:41:24 225280 bytes)
    + C:\WINDOWS\KX16.DLL (27-08-2001 20:17:58 47104 bytes)
    + C:\WINDOWS\KX32.DLL (29-03-2002 12:38:16 49152 bytes)
    + C:\WINDOWS\KX95.DLL (19-11-2001 05:00:00 49152 bytes)

    path c:\windows;c:\windows\command

    KiXtart environment: complete.

  • kixcheck.exe wkix32
    it will verify for the wkix32, kx16.dll, kx32.dll & kx95.dll files.
    code:
    KixCheck 2.01 (c) scripting@wanadoo.nl 2002

    Found as C:\WINDOWS\WKIX32.EXE (29-05-2002 16:56:14 225280 bytes)

    + C:\WINDOWS\KX95.DLL (19-11-2001 05:00:00 49152 bytes)

    path c:\windows;c:\windows\command

    KiXtart environment: complete.

The help information (= kixcheck ?) is
code:
KixCheck 2.01                      (c) MCA - scripting@wanadoo.nl - 2001, 2002
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
KixCheck [kix32|wkix32]

For simplicity we introduce also the wkixcheck.exe tool.
Only the differences are:
default it will search for the wkix32.exe instead of kix32.exe file.
The output will be
code:
WkixCheck 2.01 (c) scripting@wanadoo.nl 2002

Found as C:\WINDOWS\WKIX32.EXE (29-05-2002 16:56:14 225280 bytes)

+ C:\WINDOWS\KX95.DLL (19-11-2001 05:00:00 49152 bytes)

path c:\windows;c:\windows\command
KiXtart environment: complete.

The possible calls in your script can be:
  • to verify kix32.exe
    code:
    @echo off
    %0\..\kixcheck.exe
    if errorlevel 1 %0\..\kix410update.exe /q

    or
    code:
    @echo off
    %0\..\kixcheck.exe kix32
    if errorlevel 1 %0\..\kix410update.exe /q
    kix32.exe %0\..\your_script.kix
    @echo off

Dear,

Based on the input from Kent Dyer & Les Ligetfa we
have extend the iexpress packages a little bit.
New is:
  • implementation of "terminal service" model.
    we are using drive based on "systemroot" registry setting. it solves
    problems with unavailable C-drive.
    for the temporary files it will use as prefix %tmp% environment
    variable.
  • status of file association .scr untouch by another association.
  • additional information will be written to debugging file. So you can
    see what the actual registry settings for .K2K, .KIX, .SCR and .UDF are.
  • script returns now also a errorlevel- 0 = a complete installation done
    - 1 = a incomplete installation done
    this value can use in your BATch file.
    f.e.
    code:
    @echo off
    %0\..\kix410update.exe /q
    if errorlevel 1 goto server
    if errorlevel 0 goto client
    goto server
    :server
    %0\..\kix32.exe %0\..\your_script.kix
    goto end
    :client
    kix32 %0\..\your_script.kix
    :end
    @echo off

  • in the NTx environment it isn't necessary to install the kx16.dll,
    kx32.dll and kx95.dll.
    we make it possible such installation, but for backward compatibility
    we introduce the additional environment variable kix-only-required.
    its value isn't important.
    the control file shows the result of such installation.
Current environment variables to control packages are
  • kix-debug
  • kix-only-required
  • kix-show
Examples:
  • a standard installation
    code:
    [KiXtart]
    kix32.exe=2002/08/14 02:35:01 -> 2002/07/08 20:41:12 225280 (build 099)

code:
  IF (@inwin = 1)
$destination_directory=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows NT\currentversion", "SystemRoot")
$system_drive=Substr($destination_directory,1,3) ; - This will show C: or M: or what drive windows is installed on -
$destination_directory=$system_drive+"\Scripts"
IF GETFILEATTR($destination_directory) & 16
ELSE
SHELL "%comspec% /c md "+$destination_directory
ENDIF
ELSE
$destination_directory=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion", "SystemRoot")

Dear Kent,

Would it be nice for your situation, when the iexpress package creates also the subdirectory scripts?

Also we understand that in your environment kixtart is installing in a correct
way. That means:
- within W9x environment also the necessary DLL's will be installed.
- within NTx environment only the KIX32.EXE will be installed.
After confirmation by you we will change our script in such a way, that it
isn't necessary to specify an environment variable for it.

Please confirm our request.
greetings.

These are correct. I believe the DLL being unecessary has been talked about.

(1) Why copy the DLLs when not used in an NT Environment?
(2) Why Associate .KIX, .KX, .UDF files unless you are a "scripter" like you and me? [Big Grin]
(3) The C:\Scripts folder change I implemented below is because we ran into a security issue when a "locked down" user could not write a file even to %windir%.

Here are the changes made to the package:

>> ISNTALL.KIX <<
Original -
code:
  IF ($nt_mode = "yes")
$destination_directory=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows NT\currentversion", "SystemRoot")
ELSE
$destination_directory=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion", "SystemRoot")
ENDIF

Change to -
code:
  IF ($nt_mode = "yes")
$destination_directory=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows NT\currentversion", "SystemRoot")
$system_drive=Substr($destination_directory,1,3) ; - This will show C: or M: or what drive windows is installed on -
$destination_directory=$system_drive+"\Scripts"
IF GETFILEATTR($destination_directory) & 16
ELSE
MD $destination_directory
ENDIF
ELSE
$destination_directory=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion", "SystemRoot")
$system_drive=Substr($destination_directory,1,3) ; - This will show C: or M: or what drive windows is installed on -
$destination_directory=$system_drive+"\Scripts"
IF GETFILEATTR($destination_directory) & 16
ELSE
MD $destination_directory
ENDIF
ENDIF

>> START1.KIX <<

Original -
code:
  IF ($nt_mode = "yes")
$destination_directory=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows NT\currentversion", "SystemRoot")
ELSE
$destination_directory=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion", "SystemRoot")
ENDIF

Change to -
code:
  IF ($nt_mode = "yes")
$destination_directory=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows NT\currentversion", "SystemRoot")
$system_drive=Substr($destination_directory,1,3) ; - This will show C: or M: or what drive windows is installed on -
$destination_directory=$system_drive+"\Scripts"
IF GETFILEATTR($destination_directory) & 16
ELSE
MD $destination_directory
ENDIF
ELSE
$destination_directory=ReadValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion", "SystemRoot")
$system_drive=Substr($destination_directory,1,3) ; - This will show C: or M: or what drive windows is installed on -
$destination_directory=$system_drive+"\Scripts"
IF GETFILEATTR($destination_directory) & 16
ELSE
MD $destination_directory
ENDIF
ENDIF

Change $update="no"

For the Registry..

Add in a line -
$associat = "No"

Above -
$required_mode="no"

IF $associat = "Yes"

Add in an ENDIF below -
code:
  IF ($debug_mode = "yes")
? " =>"
? " => .kix "+ReadValue("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.kix","")
? " => .k2k "+ReadValue("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.k2k","")
? " => .scr "+ReadValue("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.scr","")
? " => .udf "+ReadValue("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.udf","")
? " => kix32 document "+ReadValue("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\kix32 document\Shell","")
? " =>"
ENDIF
ENDIF ;>> Added

Thanks,

Kent

Dear,

We will make it possible that anyone will have the capability to install all
kixtart files regardless NT or not.
In our opinion the iexpress package should be bullet-proof for new windows
releases. It is possible that a new release requires all files.

As reaction on
(1) after releasing a new version it will only copy necessary kixtart files
to client. For NTx only kix32.exe and for W9x also the DLLs.

With the new release no environment variable is necessary for above
way of installation.

(2) for the general users (= none "scripters") we are using always the kix???update.exe
version for installation. we are removing existing file associations with
during these installation.
Only the kix???registry.exe will create kixtart file associations.

(3) we will think about "how to implement this".

Kent, can you mail me those kixtart scripts?
Later this month we try to have the new releases. At the same time we
try to have documentation about the way it can and should use. At the
moment we read many times the same questions.
Of course we will send you for testing a copy of the new one, before ma-
king them public.

Thanks and greetings.

Will you fix the issue of the .OK files that are created even when the update was not OK?

Instead of packaging RC versions, why not wait till they go gold?

Dear,

Of course, that was possible.

Sometime people were asking "where are the new packages for kixtart 4.22 release".
For those beta-testers it can be handy.

With previous upgrades it was a very simple process to create those package.
By changing the @kix layout we MUST not only modify our internal scripts, but
also the kixstrip program for the debugging part.
Now the process is the same again.

When Ruud goes for GOLD we can distribute that version with related package
very fast.
greetings.
