Default [APP] Drop to Windows v1.6 + Sense Tools + Parameters | Sense shortcuts fixed!!!!

A small tool I made while creating my ROM. I don't know if this will help you in any way guys but it's my share for this community and a big thank you for helping me.

So here's DropToWin
Which copies files and folders to \Windows directory. I think it's a good tool if you're trying to make some changes in your WM.


This is how it looks like in my Explorer


Quote:
Features:
  • Restart Sense/Manila
  • Stop Sense
  • Start Sense
  • Soft Reset
  • Copy Files and Folders without the nag of question to overwrite files/folders.
  • Can accept parameters - thanks to @ai6908 for his thoughts about this
  • Import Registry - future. May require (dotfred) FDC Task Manager

Installation
Please install it in your Device! Not in Storage Card.

Sorry but there are some limitation in Visual Studio - Smart Device CAB.
So I had to make a workaround.
ref: http://hadsy.net/2009/02/18/WindowsC...BProjects.aspx
Quote:
Instructions:
  • The project is now released as a .CAB file so it has to be installed.
  • Copy the Files or Folders you want to drop in \Windows directory in \Program Files\Gambit Mobile Tools\DropToWin directory
  • or you can Copy(Do not move!) the .exe file in your SD, but make sure to have a separate folder for it.
Quote:
Parameters:
rs = Restart Sense
ex: DropToWin.exe rs

ts = Stop Sense
ex: DropToWin.exe ts

ss = Start Sense
ex: DropToWin.exe ss

sr = Soft Reset
ex: DropToWin.exe sr
Quote:
Experimental File Parameters
1. Deleting a file in \Windows directory directly here in DropToWin
Instructions:
-- 1.1 Make a dummy file
------ e.g. If you want to delete ManilaFull.xml in \Windows directory
------ 1.1.1 Create a dummy file and name it like this >> q=del;ManilaFull.xml
------ 1.1.2 Then copy that file where DropToWin.exe is located then click DROP button!
2. Renaming a file in \Windows directory directly here in DropToWin
Instructions:
-- 2.1 Make a dummy file
------ e.g. If you want to rename ManilaFull.xml in \Windows directory
------ 2.1.1 Create a dummy file and name it like this >> q=ren~New_File_Name_Of_ManilFull.xml;ManilaFull.xml
------ 2.1.2 Then copy that file where DropToWin.exe is located then click DROP button!

good job, p're. will try it. i'm particularly interested in stop/start sense without going though the hassle.

p.s. just installed it in storage card, not on device, did a soft reset but cannot launch restart/stop sense. error says: file 'drop to win' cannot be opened, either it is not signed with a trusted certificate, or one of its components cannot be found.

forgot to tell, you have to install it in your device. the shortcuts was looking for DropToWin.exe in \Program Files\Gambit Mobile Tools\DropToWin.
