Based on XDA_UC (by Noonski). I used it in my ROMs and the idea is just great.
But there are some issues that I want to fix and also I have some new ideas.
So I started new project.
1. XDA_UC is based on MortScript, and I use C#. This affects only engine. You can use your mscr files for customization =)
2. XDA_UC runs in background, it's almost silent. I want to add feedback to show what's happening now.

Official Russian forum is here.

This application will install all cab files, reg tweaks, provxmls, run mscr scripts, copy files (and more) from given folder. Use it after you upgraded your ROM to restore everything.

Information for Chef's updated 2010/07/07
UC_NET new feature - Using variables updated 2010/07/02
UC_NET new feature - Portable commands updated 2010/07/07
UC_NET tutorial - HOWTO create shortcuts updated 2010/07/02

Requirements: NetCF 3.5

Main features:
portable, supports localization, uses OS functions (if possible, for example for installing provxml), predictable - you can control order of everything, error reporting, full customization log.

Quick start:
1. create folders on your storage card
Code:
XDA_UC
XDA_UC\Manual
XDA_UC\Copy2Root
XDA_UC\Run
XDA_UC\Execute
"XDA_UC" is a place for all .cab, .reg, .mscr, .cer files that should be automatically installed to device.
"Manual" is a place for all cab files you want install in usual "visible" mode with all questions.
"Copy2Root" is a place for all files and folders that should be automatically copied to device.
"Run" is a place for you self-extracting archives.
"Execute" is a place for you self-extracting archives if you want to continue customization while them working.
2. run UC_NET.exe, select your XDA_UC folder and press customize button.

XDA_UC_NET features:
1. It runs with any ROM that has NETCF 3.5. You don't need to install or cook it. Just take exe and run it.
2. It searches for XDA_UC folders on your storages and then you can choose what folder you want to use for customization. And you can even select any other folder as a root for customization.
3. How it works. When you select folder and press "Customize!" program uses this algorithm:
Install MSCRs
RunWaitFiles - run apps from the Run folder and from coomand files UC_NET_Run
RunNoWaitFiles - run apps from the Execute folder and from coomand files UC_NET_Execute
Install XMLs ("*.*xml" from XDA_UC)
Install CERTs ("*.cer" from XDA_UC)
Install CABs silent to device memory ("*.cab" from XDA_UC)
Install CABs manual ("*.cab" from XDA_UC\Manual)
Install REGs ("*.reg" from XDA_UC, uses FS_TaskMgr.exe)
Install RGUs ("*.rgu" and "*.cereg" from XDA_UC, uses FS_TaskMgr.exe)
Copy Directories (see UC_NET_CopyDirectories)
Copy Files (see UC_NET_CopyFiles)
Move Files (see UC_NET_MoveFiles)
Delete Files (see UC_NET_DeleteFiles)
Create Shortcuts (see UC_NET_CreateShortcuts)
Install PIB (restore you contacts, uses last pib file and PPCPimBackup.exe)

if portable mode is disabled in menu, at the end of customization program will read arguments from registry and do these actions:
XDAUC_CopyDirectories (XDA_UC DirCopy feature)
XDAUC_DeletFiles (XDA_UC Delete feature)
XDAUC_CopyFiles (XDA_UC FileCopy feature)
XDAUC_CreateShortcuts (XDA_UC AutoShortCut feature)

4. FS_TaskMgr.exe and PPCPimBackup.exe are used for some actions, program will search for these files in current folder, in \Windows and in the selected XDA_UC folder. Both files are included.
5. Program logs every step – you can see what is happening right now. Errors are shown separately – you can see if something wrong happened.
6. All files processed in strict alphabetical order. For example, if you want to install SlideIT.cab before DanishPack.cab, you can just change names: 1_SlideIT.cab, 2_DanishPack.cab.
7. Program will first search and use XDA_UC\1, XDA_UC\2, … XDA_UC\99 folders (1-99 in alphabetical order), before using base XDA_UC. For example, you want to install some reg files before installing cab files, and you want to install first.cab right after installing these reg files. How to do this?
Go to XDA_UC folder, create subfolder "1" and move these reg files to XDA_UC\1.
Go to XDA_UC folder, create subfolder "2" and move this first.cab to XDA_UC\2.
8. You can structurize your setup folders by using Groups. Programm will show you menu and let to choose what you want to install. Read more here.
Ready!

Release history.

NETCFv35.Messages.EN.wm.cab - install it and you will see detailed descriptions of errors (if any)

If you want to translate program to your language - please follow instruction in included UC_NET_Localization_SRC.zip.

Update 2011/03/20 - new Fr and Sk localizations - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=12231359&postcount=238

Information for Chef's

UC_NET v0.6
2010/07/07

option to run on any boot you like
you can configure wait timeout
you can set any folder as root folder (not only XDA_UC)
you can display your own Welcome Message in any language.
see attached readme.txt for more details


UC_NET v0.5
2010/07/02

put UC_NET_FirstBoot.lnk in your StartUp folder if you want run UC_NET.exe with these arguments
/CreateShortcuts
/CopyDirectories
/CopyFiles
/DeleteFiles

registry key
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\XDA\Delete]
"Environment.SpecialFolder.Startup\\UC_NET_FirstBoot.lnk"=""
will delete this UC_NET_FirstBoot.lnk link after first boot.

registry key
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\XDA\AutoShortCut]
"Environment.SpecialFolder.Programs\\UC_NET Customize.lnk"="\\Windows\\UC_NET.exe"
will create shortcut for users in programs menu.

command line parameters
/CreateShortcuts - creates shortcuts for all files listed under
HKLM\Software\XDA\AutoShortCut
/CopyDirectories- copies all directories (including all files and subfolders) listed under
HKLM\Software\XDA\DirCopy
/CopyFiles- copies all single files listed under
HKLM\Software\XDA\FileCopy
/Delete- deletes all files listed under
HKLM\Software\XDA\Delete
read more about XDA_UC commands format here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=562568

UC_NET extends XDA_UC
You can use variables in your commands
and it will work with any localization of windows.

for example, this key will delete UC_NET_FirstBoot.lnk from Startup folder.
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\XDA\Delete]
"Environment.SpecialFolder.Startup\\UC_NET_FirstBoot.lnk"=""
IMPORTANT - UC_NET doesn't show GUI to user if started with command line.
I think this is the most confusing part of original XDA_UC - your ROM depends on something that user will do on first (second) boot.
Therefor I disabled GUI - If user wants to use customization he will start it from start menu, and of course in this case user will know what's up. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Another difference from original XDA_UC - UC_NET will not install all cab files from windows folder. I can add this feature, but I don't know why Chef will put cab files into his "perfect" ROM. The same with reg files - what kind of chef needs to import reg files AFTER the ROM is ready? =)

please, post your comments and requests!

UC_NET extends XDA_UC with portable commands:

UC_NET_Magic_CreateShortcuts
UC_NET_CopyDirectories
UC_NET_CopyFiles
UC_NET_MoveFiles
UC_NET_CreateShortcuts
UC_NET_Delete
UC_NET_Run
UC_NET_Execute
UC_NET_BackupReg

Just create text file (UTF8 and Unicode supported), fill this file with command arguments and put it to any XDA_UC folder (to root, or to root\1 and so on).

UC_NET_Magic_CreateShortcuts, creates shortcuts for all exe files in given folder and its subfolders.
base filename UC_NET_Magic_CreateShortcuts format:
create_shortcuts_here=folder_with_exe_files
create_shortcuts_here=folder_with_exe_files
...
base filename UC_NET_CopyDirectories format:
to=from
to=from
...
base filename UC_NET_CopyFiles format:
to=from
to=from
new in v0.9.3.1 - You can use "*" and "?" wildcards in UC_NET_CopyFiles, (if you are using mask, destination parameter should be a folder name, as you cannot copy several files to one file)
...
base filename UC_NET_MoveFiles - new command v0.9.3.1, works exactly like UC_NET_CopyFiles, but moves files. You can use it to rename files as well.
to=from
to=from
...
base filename UC_NET_CreateShortcuts format:
link="target"
link="target" params
...
base filename UC_NET_Delete format:
file_to_delete
file_to_delete
directory_to_delete
...

You can use "*" and "?" wildcards in UC_NET_Delete -
for example
Code:
StorageManager.Profiles.SDMemory\_test_del\*.txt
will delete all txt files in my folder _test_del on storage card.

base filename UC_NET_Run format: - new command v0.9.3.1
each line of such file is a path to your application (or script, or anything that can run). UC_NET will start program and wait until it finishes. You can pass parameters to your program. In this case Use quotes around path and then place a parameters.
for example:
"notepad.exe" my_text_file.txt
this will start notepad.exe and pass my_text_file.txt as parameter.

base filename UC_NET_Execute format: - new command v0.9.3.1
works exactly like UC_NET_Run, but doesn't wait for complete and continue with next customization step.

UC_NET_BackupReg - new command v0.9.4.0, uses FS_TaskMgr.exe /regxpkey feature.
format for this command is
filepath=[regkey]
filepath2=[regkey2]
...

See attached examples. Tell me if it's not clear how to use this feature.
You can have more than one file with parameters - just add something to base filename. For example UC_NET_CreateShortcuts1.Settings.Advanced will be parsed as well as UC_NET_CreateShortcuts.txt

HOWTO create shortcuts

A shortcut is a small file containing the name of a target program file that the shortcut represents. The shortcut might additionally specify parameters to be passed to the target program when it is run. Shortcuts are very commonly placed on Start Menu.

option 1: UC_NET_Magic_CreateShortcuts protable command
use UC_NET to create shortcuts for all programs in given folder

Before you read remaining part of this tutorial you need to know
-the name of a folder with target programs (should be real folder you have on your device)
-name of folder for your new shortcuts (any name you like)

now download UC_NET_v0.5_portable_commands_example.zip from the first post and open UC_NET_Magic_CreateShortcuts.txt file.
There is a line in this file. It is a command, that will be processed by UC_NET when you press "Customize".
Code:
Environment.SpecialFolder.Programs\My Util=StorageManager.Profiles.SDMemory\MyPortableUtils
Format is:
<destination folder>=<source folder with target programs>
You can find '=' character and everything before it is a destination folder
Code:
Environment.SpecialFolder.Programs\My Util
Environment.SpecialFolder.Programs - is a variable, that points to the place where all Start Menu shortcuts are stored.
"My Util" - is a name for new folder under start menu where all new shortcuts created by this command will be stored.

For example, if you want create shortcuts for GPS utilities you can change this part to
Code:
Environment.SpecialFolder.Programs\GPS
everything after '=' character is folder with target programs
Code:
StorageManager.Profiles.SDMemory\MyPortableUtils
Replace this string with your path - folder with target programs, and you ready.
For example, if your GPS utilities are here
\Storage Card\util\gps you should change this part to
Code:
\Storage Card\util\gps
Save your file and put it in your XDA_UC folder.
Start UC_NET, choose this folder and perss [Customize!]


option 2: UC_NET_CreateShortcuts protable command
control and tune every shortcut for every program you want

Before you read remaining part of this tutorial you need to know
-the name of a target program file (should be real program you have on your device)
-name of your new shortcut (any name you like)

now download UC_NET_v0.5_portable_commands_example.zip from the first post and open UC_NET_CreateShortcuts1.txt file.
There are two lines in this file. Each line is a command, that will be processed by UC_NET when you press "Customize".
The second line shows an example how to create shortcut with parameters, it's a bit tricky and for now delete this second line. You can return to it later, when you understand simple shortcut creation.
Let take first line:
Code:
Environment.SpecialFolder.Programs\Test Portable.lnk="\Storage Card\_new_distrib\portable\LiteNote\LiteNote.exe"
format is
<shortcut name>="<target program file>"
You can find '=' character and everything before it is a shortcut name
Code:
Environment.SpecialFolder.Programs\Test Portable.lnk
Environment.SpecialFolder.Programs - is a variable, that points to the place where all Start Menu shortcuts are stored.
"Test Portable" is a name for my new shortcut - when I open Start menu I want to see this name. You can change it as you wish.
".lnk" - is a file extension, do not change it.

For example, if you want create shortcut for chess game you can change this part to
Code:
Environment.SpecialFolder.Programs\Chess.lnk
everything after '=' character is target program file
Code:
"\Storage Card\_new_distrib\portable\LiteNote\LiteNote.exe"
Replace this string with your target program file path and you ready.
Do not remove quotes.
For example, if your chess gameis here
\Storage Card\games\chess\chess.exe you should change this part to
Code:
"\Storage Card\games\chess\chess.exe"
Do this for all your shortcuts. (copy this line and edit it)

Save your file and put it in your XDA_UC folder.
Start UC_NET, choose this folder and perss [Customize!]


option 3: XDA_UC registry command AutoShortCut
UC_NET can read XDA_UC registry commands, you can use them as well.
These commands are not portable, and you should uncheck "Portable" option in menu or use command line switches. example:
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\XDA\AutoShortCut]
"Environment.SpecialFolder.Programs\\GPS\\SeaSGEE.lnk"="\\Windows\\SeaSGEE.exe"
read more about this type of commands in XDA_UC thread.

And you can make these commands more portable if you use variables - replace \Storage Card with StorageManager.Profiles.SDMemory, this will work even if Storage Card has different name in new ROM.

How to create shortcut with parameters?
MSDN says
Place quotes around the target path so that SHCreateShortcut can correctly parse the target file from any following arguments.
example - creating shortcut to enable FileDialogChanger:
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\XDA\AutoShortCut]
"Environment.SpecialFolder.Startup\\filedlgchgs.lnk"="\"ctlpnl.exe\" filedlgchg 1"

Idea looks great.
The only thing I'm missing here is;
*Quick lauch icons on the 3 home screens
-Would like to backup these icons in the exact order and every app should be installed, so each quick launch icon should referr to that perticular app.

After every install of any new energy ROM :D it is so much work to order and fill in the 3 home screens quick launch icons and apps :(

Kind Regards

[email protected]

ROM: Energy Dinik style 22nd June
Radio: 2.10.50.28_2
HSPL: 2.08 HSPL

History

[2010/11/02] UC_NET v 0.9.4.4
  • new command "Refresh Today screen" is added. Just create an empty file UC_NET_RefreshToday.txt in your folder, and the program will refresh today screen.
    This command is executed after all other things in the folder, as a last step.
  • the program will show the message about cprog.exe if you run PPCPimBackup.exe, using UC_NET_Run command. It works exactly like it works when you are restoring pib file.
  • UC_NET_BackupReg is improved - the program now checks if registry keys exist, and doesn't create empty files if key doesn't exist.
  • UC_NET_Delete, UC_NET_Copy and UC_NET_Move are improved - all of them support masks now, and all these commands work with files and directories.
    for example, now you can delete all files and directories in a folder with one UC_NET_Delete command, if you give it \myFolder\* as a parameter.
    if you need a command that works only with files, add "Files" to its name (for example, UC_NET_CopyFiles)
    if you need a command that works only with directories, add "Directories" to its name (for example, UC_NET_DeleteDirectories)
  • small bugfixes

Code:
[2010/10/22] UC_NET v 0.9.4.3
[LIST]
[*] Now the program uses safe code to control power during customization.
This version of UC_NET doesn't use registry keys related to power and back light to prevent device from sleep during customization.
Previous version, like original XDA_UC, used registry to keep back light "always on" - it's unsafe, because if your device was reset before the end of customization, these registry keys were not restored.
[*] Polish localization is updated (thanks to Bysio)
[*] UC_NET current version is added to log file.
[*] Sense SDK message boxes were replaced with standart message boxes to make program more stable (because there are no bugfixes for Sense SDK)
[/LIST]

[2010/10/14] UC_NET v 0.9.4.2
[LIST]
[*] new localizations were added:
Chinese (Simplified),zh-Hans
Polish, pl
Spanish, es-ES
[*] [Cancel] is added to the list of groups.
[*]  [Pause] and [Resume] were added to customization window. You can use this to tell program you want to pause before next step of customization.
[*] New commandline parameter /base="path to your folder" - use it if you want to select any of your folders when UC_NET starts.

[*] "Create shortcut" is added to the main menu - use it to create shortcut in Start Menu, that will launch UC_NET and automatically select current folder.

[*] new variables:
"ShellFolders.Windows" - value of  HKLM\System\Explorer\Shell Folders\Windows
"ShellFolders.StartUp" - value of  HKLM\System\Explorer\Shell Folders\StartUp
"ShellFolders.Recent" - value of  HKLM\System\Explorer\Shell Folders\Recent
"ShellFolders.Programs" - value of  HKLM\System\Explorer\Shell Folders\Programs
"ShellFolders.ProgramFiles" - value of  HKLM\System\Explorer\Shell Folders\Program Files
"ShellFolders.MyDocuments" - value of  HKLM\System\Explorer\Shell Folders\My Documents
"ShellFolders.Fonts" - value of  HKLM\System\Explorer\Shell Folders\Fonts
"ShellFolders.Favorites" - value of  HKLM\System\Explorer\Shell Folders\Favorites
"ShellFolders.Desktop" - value of  HKLM\System\Explorer\Shell Folders\Desktop
"ShellFolders.ApplicationData" - value of  HKLM\System\Explorer\Shell Folders\Application Data

filepath=[regkey] 
filepath2=[regkey2]
...
[*] system variables are now supported for Copy2Root folder.
see attached UC_NET_v0.9.4.0_test.zip
for example everithing from Copy2Root\Environment.SpecialFolder.StartMenu
will be copied to \Windows\Start Menu if you run 0409 localization of Windows Mobile.
[*] UC_NET_DeleteFiles is renamed to UC_NET_Delete as it can delete files and folders.
[/LIST]

[2010/09/27] UC_NET v0.9.3.1

[*] program now uses last pib file, this allows you to keep several backups in the same folder and only the latest will be restored with PIMBackup.
[*] empty groups are hidden in the group list, especially root folder
[*] "*" and "?" masks are supported for UC_NET_CopyFiles command (if you are using mask, destination parameter should be a folder name, as you cannot copy several files to one file)
[*] same command files in a folder are processed in strict alphabetical order, (for ex. UC_NET_CopyFiles_0 comes first, then UC_NET_CopyFiles_8)
[*] UC_NET_MoveFiles - new command, works exactly like UC_NET_CopyFiles, but moves files. You can use it to rename files as well.

[/LIST]

[2010/07/02] UC_NET v0.5 new features
  • new portable command UC_NET_Magic_CreateShortcuts. example.
  • new variables for SDCards names
  • rgu files supported (as reg files)
  • you can open last log from menu now.
  • internal engine improvement - UC_NET detects ROM files in copy and replace operations.

[2010/06/29] UC_NET v0.4 new features
  • NEW - portable commands. Now you can put files with commands in your XDA_UC folders. I suggest to use this in-place of XDA_UC registry commands.
  • New - portable mode (active by default, see menu). "Portable" means no commands from registry will be used. This is good for users. UC_NET will just process selected folder and do not recreate shortcuts defined by Chef and so on. Tell me how do you like this new feature.
  • pim.vol copy to root is supported.
  • internal engine feature - delete locked files on next reboot.

[2010/06/26] UC_NET v0.3 new features
  • now you can use any folder on device as a root for customization.
  • command line params
    /CreateShortcuts - creates shortcuts for all files listed under
    HKLM\Software\XDA\AutoShortCut
    /CopyDirectories- copies all directories (including all files and subfolders) listed under
    HKLM\Software\XDA\DirCopy
    /CopyFiles- copies all single files listed under
    HKLM\Software\XDA\FileCopy
    /Delete- deletes all files listed under
    HKLM\Software\XDA\Delete
  • loacalization support - no more hardcoded strings like \Windows\Start Menu\Programs\, that depends on ROM locale. Use Environment.SpecialFolder Enumeration
    for example, this key will delete UC_NET_FirstBoot.lnk from Startup folder.
    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\XDA\Delete]
    "Environment.SpecialFolder.Startup\\UC_NET_FirstBoot.lnk"=""
  • Package for Chefs is released - tested it in my own ROM

[2010/06/25] UC_NET v0.2 new features
  • support XDA_UC Copy2Root feature - copy everything from Copy2Root folder to device, without any reg keys.
  • run MortScript files if any. MortScript must be installed or cooked (you can install using cab and UC_NET of course =).
  • you can run TaskManager right from UC_NET window.
  • save log as text file.
  • timestamps in log.

[2010/06/24] UC_NET v0.1 - first release, preview.[/CODE]

This is nice :) If you could get away from using the FDCSoft task manager to import .reg files it would be perfect! :)
UC_NET uses FDCSoft task manager in silent mode. It's almost invisible =)
Anyway, now I finished with most features, and will implement registry files parser. (It's strange, but there is no such thing in WinAPI).

Where can I put folders and files to have automatically copied over. In SASHIMI, you put them in the Auto/Root folder

For example:
\Storage Card\SASHIMI\Auto\Root\Program Files

The folder and all it's sub-folders and contents would be copied to \Program Files

I tried naming a folder within the XDA_UC folder CopytoRoot and DirCopy and neither worked. What do I need to do?

I have an idea for next v0.5:

I see it's not very clear how to create shortcuts with XDA_UC.

Imagine this - you can create shortcuts for all *.exe files in folder (and its subfolders). Just
1. create text file named like UC_NET_Magic_CreateShortcuts.txt in your XDA_UC folder
2. add parameters to it
destination folder=source folder
destination folder 2=source folder 2
and so on.

for example if I add
Code:
Environment.SpecialFolder.Programs\My Utils=\Storage Card\MyPortableUtils
UC_NET will create folder My Utils in Start Menu and then it will create shortcuts for all programs from \Storage Card\MyPortableUtils in this folder.

What do you think? =)

Hi. I'd like to use yout app on my Omnia2 with Rapid's Sense 6.5, but there are some issues.
All I did was:
Copy the cabs in an XDA_UC named dir placed in my "install" folder on Storage Card.
Uncompressed the app, started the exe.
Selected the XDA_UC dir.
Pressed customize.

Then it installed MortScript.cab, and none of the others. Instead it says: [13:09:19][13:09:20][\Storage Card\install\XDA_UC][Install CABs silent][ERROR]\Storage Card\install\XDA_UC\cabname.CAB, Exception:wceload.exe returns -2147024891
for all of the cabs I want to install(cabname is always different ofc). Could you help me please?

wceload.exe returns -2147024891, "access denied", on you ROM.
Try this - install one of your cabs manually.
If installing cab by tapping on it, would normally display a security
warning for not being signed, then wceload.exe will fail in silent mode.
In this case you need to relax your ROM security.

This is in the Requirements of original XDA_UC:
"The Rom should have the security relaxed in HKLM\Security\Policies\Polices by setting the value 0000101a to a 1.
So unsigned installations and Mortscript do not give a security error."

Try to add this to your registry.

I see, thanks. There is a registry app in which I can disable security. I'll do that.
Thanks agai and keep up the good work!:D
