Every programmer knows. You always count starting at 0. :) Continuing the numbering a-z would be fine. I plan on adding this to the CustomizePanel that will allow users to remove programs currently included in UBCD (including all personal use only software). This will involve turning the current men...

Hotkeys

If there is wide interest, I can make UBCD Creator have the option to add hotkeys to the menus. Since it would be done programatically by UBCD Creator, using the numeric approach would be used (it is simpler). This would allow individuals that liked this method to customize the ISO accordingly, whil...

Personal Use Only

I am still working on the plugin capability; however, I was going to create the ability for UBCD Creator to also remove all personal use software from the UBCD. However, I am not familiar with all the programs on UBCD. Which programs are Personal Use Only? Are all labeled in the ini and cfg files?

Put all metadate in a XML file and make a GUI dialog for creating plugins...You can add additional parameters in the xml file, so that you don't need the bash script anymore. XML is more difficult to parse than text. It does add additional flexibility and a hierarchal structure, but I am not sure i...

Yes F-prot is only free for home users... The key for the home user version is always the same. Since the key is always the same, than it shouldn't be an issue to include it into UBCD Creator. I got the URLs by looking at the output of the fpupdate program. I monitored the connections that fpupdate...

For downloading the definition files of f-prot (for linux) and clamav (linux), you don't need to register. This is true only for clamav. F-PROT is only free for home users and you have to specifify your customer number (key). I am guessing you reverse engineered the URL from their fpupdate script. ...

Include additional utilities

In browsing around these forums, I have seen a lot of code examples of simple and complex scripts that people have written and posted for all to use. I think it would be a good idea to gather some of these utilities and put them into version control on the UBCD Creator website for maintenance. We ca...

there are so many possibilities, and opinions on a good one so I hope that while the software can be closed the method for creating a plugin is open and simplified for those not able to script but want to donate, like myself. UBCD Creator is open. It is released under the GPL and is free to modify ...

I looked at the Freedos page and it took me to a website where you had to click on the link. I also examined the other pages and they all indicate you have to lo...

OK, I guess I was thinking of users who might find it useful to keep the UBCD up to date, but wouldn't want/need to create their own plugins (just want a very simple way to update). I anticipate very few people actually creating the plugins. Most would just want to use the plugins others create to ...

I was just thinking how the Creator could be made useful for all users rather than just making things easier for those users that are already able to customise & rebuild. I am not understanding what you are saying. UBCD Creator provides the ability to extract the files from the ISO image and recrea...

What is the Linux command to extract files from the ISO. I thought I had this working on a linux machine, but neither 7z under Mac OS X fink nor 7za under CentOS 4.4 seem to be able to extract ISO files.

I will add an update button that will allow the program to connect to the internet and fetch any periodic updates and apply them to the extracted CD image. Beyond antiv...

UBCD Creator - A Graphical Tool

Hey everyone. I have gotten a preliminary version of the software made. It is a Java graphical interface that can extract and create UBCDs. Currently, it doesn't support the plugins I discussed earlier; however, it will soon. I have also included the ability to "patch" a CD. This allows you to extra...

Adding to dosubcd.igz

Another feature that might be useful to add to this GUI is to create a new 'user.cab' file inside dosubcd.igz that contains their favorite programs they want available in all dos boots. In my case that would be the latest version of Vim.

Would anyone else find this useful?

Maybe instead of using perl we can use python (see below: GTK+ Phyton bindings). If we write the test program without GUI in Python, if hopefully won't be to hard to convert the program to a GUI program with the python bindings which are available for GTK+. I would be open from moving from Perl to ...

To extract the iso from the command line we can use 7z.exe from the 7zip program. It works on linux too. I was thinking the same thing. I would like to keep all the utilities we use to only open source software. That way we can distribute them with the software. I have never made a program with a G...

Re: UBCD Mod Packages

Are you going to make it a shell script? There are a number of GNU utilities native ported to Windows. If we need some tools that aren't included, we always can use the tools of the cygwin project. I wasn't aware of these utilities; they're awesome. I wanted to stay away from cygwin because I have ...

"mod packages" ??? you mean something similar to the bartPE/UBCD4Win plugins? I believe so. I am not very familiar with BartPE or UBCD4Win, so I can't confirm definitively. "Plugin" is probably a better word than "mod packages". Previous experience with such scripts has led me to be somewhat cautio...
