QuickCab 2.0


Like most people around here I enjoy customizing my phone. Problem is that copying files and applying a bunch of Registry tweaks by hand is tedious. I've built CAB files in the past but creating the INF files is an ugly process...not for the feignt of heart.

So I created a utility called QuickCab that makes creating CAB files easy. It doesn't support every possible scenario, but if what you want to do is copy files or change the registry, it works quite well. This is perfect for Themes, Ringtones, Tweaks, and Mods.

***Requires the .Net Framework 3.5 which can be found here



Changelog:
2.0
* Rewrote GUI to allow for more options and fix selection errors
* Fixed many button and selection errors
* Added Shortcut support
* Added support for Vista UAC
* Added support for compressed cabs
* Added ability to prevent uninstall
* Removed support for Setup.dll (does anyone use this?)
* Move from .Net 2.0 to .Net 3.5

1.0
* Initial Release

Hello. First off great program. However i am running vista and when trying to save it comes up with a blank screen.

also in order to select individual files i need to right click the files.
Import button on reg screen doesnt work.

keep working on it and this will turn into a great app.

I'm running Vista as well...when you save it, I assume you mean when you hit the Create button. If that's the case, it's writing the INF file and spawning CABWIZ.EXE. If you selected large files, it could take awhile. Maybe I need to put up some "wait..." notification?

Yikes! The right-click thing really confuses me...It's a standard control that I use for the file selection. I couldn't make that happen if I tried! When you hit the Import button, do you get a window where you can select the reg file?

Anyone else seeing these issues?

I am new to cab creation. With cabs made with this, is the cab uninstallable? If the cab makes a registry change, does uninstalling that cab, change the registry back to its old value before cab installation?

Very very useful program.
Ideal for vanilla ROM lovers like me

It could be even better program if we could edit cabs, changing default directories, for instance from \window to \Storage Card
