@aDEO:

Appreciate you taking the time to put something like this together. Few observations with Opera 9.5b16702 using v1.2:

OPERA.INI

INI contents were replaced with the plug-ins section only. Remainder of contents removed.

OPERA1.INI

New entry, remainder still present ... all good.

AxOBJECTS.INI

Existing MIME types were removed and replaced with:

application/x-shockwave-flash|application/futuresplash




In your next version, you may want to add logic to read the current INI values and append the changes to them if they aren't already present to intended INI sections only - ex: not [Windows Media Player] in AXOBJECTS.INI.

Lastly, would it be possible for you to provide a list of changes that occur to files, registry, etc. It would be helpful in verifying that all is as should be.

Cheers,

Hello hilaireg,

Any chance to send me your old and new ini files? Will be much easy for me to locate the problems that you are notice. You can PM if you don't want to be public - no problem for me.

I am almost desperate, since its working only for me (so far). I will describe all changes for better debugging - thank you for that note.

Best regards,
aDEO

Unfortunately that fix doesn't work for me. Nevertheless good job! The idea sounds promissing!

Tried to install it under /windows/opera9.

Currently Opera 9.5 build 16643 is running on my Touch Pro 2.

Error message was something like: It's not allowed to install/execute the file.... .

Got no clue about that.

Best regards!

Here you go; the folders with the numbers correspond to builds of Opera (ex: 9.5.b16277) ... was in the midst of doing BeyondCompares to find the differences. The Windows folder contains the end result of running your 1.2 EXE - at least what i've discovered so far.

I'm manually comparing the system to see what files you add/change as I normally convert Opera to a package for my kitchens (don't use CAB's) and wanted to ensure that I include the functionality required to make everything flash related work.

Don't hesitate to PM me if you need anything else ... be my pleasure to try and help the best I can.

Cheers,

@aDEO:

Would it be possible to get a registry listing of the keys that are touched using your EXE as well as the .DLL/.EXE that you are registering.

One thing I noticed is that FLASH.DLL is replacing the IEACTIVEX.DLL (which is part of FlashLite 3.1) registration in the TypeLib.

Cheers,
