UVKSR entry for Tweaking.com's Repair tool

Post by Xander »

Not so much a "tutorial" but this seems to be the place to share this stuff....

Paste this line into the "[CustomThirdPartyApps]" section of your UVKSR file of choice.

Code: Select all

Tweaking.com's Repair (auto)=2
This can be pasted in to the end of your UVKSR.

Code: Select all

[Tweaking.com's Repair (auto)]
Description=Returning hundreds of settings back to their defaults
FileName=%Third Party%\Tweaking.zip
Url=http://www.tweaking.com/files/setups/tweaking.com_windows_repair_aio.zip
LinkText=
Command1=C:\Support\uvk\Tweaking\Tweaking.com - Windows Repair\Repair_Windows.exe /silent
Command1Flag=0
Command2=
Command2Flag=0
Command3=
Command3Flag=0

Mine runs off my NAS and needed an extra line to copy it to the local drive (this is one of the only apps I know of that won't run off a network drive). It runs fine off of flash drives, though. I've made it generic for everyone else but if you want the code for NAS use, let me know here.

The /silent parameter goes right into the repairs and runs all the defaults. If you'd rather go through the extra steps available, remove that.

Xander thanks for the info but this script currently does not work. I suspect it's be cause there is no relation between:

Code: Select all

FileName=%Third Party%\Tweaking.zip
and

Code: Select all

Command1=C:\Support\uvk\Tweaking.com - Windows Repair\Repair_Windows.exe /silent
Currently all it does is download the zip file to a folder literally named "%Third Party%" and then terminates because the the Command1 is not valid.

It is not "Can it be done?" but rather, "How can we do it?"

Doh - that's the part I forgot to adjust for the non-NAS'ers. Correcting the first post in a moment....

This will not work on a NAS either.... Not the way it is... I ran it from a NAS when I posted last time. :)

It will work, just not the way you have it posted....

Nope, I specifically said I'd changed what -I- use before I submitted it here. If you want the code I'm actually using, let me know. I've edited the original -- the first part seems to be "2" instead of 1 to affect the "same named folder" and then adjusted the path to include that.

Edit: LOL - I think I've tried to test it out and Dl'd the zip so many times I might have hit a blacklist or something 'cause now I can't even get that anymore.

If you have a script that works then you should just post it here instead of asking me if I want it. This is the tutorial section after all. I have no doubt that you got it working but the code you posted above does not.

So could you share the code that does for us to use if we want?

Edit: After re-reading this it sounded a lil gruff and I didn't really mean it too....

Xander you can use the Softpedia download type too. Just set the download URL with

Code: Select all

http://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-SOFTWARE/System/System-Enhancements/Portable-Tweaking-com-Windows-Repair.shtml
and the Download method as Softpedia page.

I tried your code up there and it copied the zip file. Here is the code that I got to work, It takes a few seconds to copy but works fine.

Extract zip file should be checked if it is not. UVK remembers it but I don't see it in this script. Maybe Fred can explain why it appears to be missing from the script.

It's not missing:

Fred's using binary for it. If the value is "1", it's checked in the big list. "2" means "same name", "3" is both.

4 is the "If files exist option" and if all three are checked it's 7.

After all this, I finally looked through that tweaking.com app and I really don't see anything that UVK doesn't already do.

THANK YOU! I was hoping someone finally would notice that.

You should not be edititng the UVKSR files directly. You may end up breaking them.

Your welcome :)

I was actually more set on getting Xanders code that he shared to work and once that happened I looked through the app and was kinda surprised to see after all that chit chat that it's nothing more than a bunch of common fixes. UVK already does them with far less check boxes......

I was kind of thinking the same, but being the less experienced guy I figured I was missing something and I put my foot in my mouth often enough. I have stuff in my third party app section that I could remove since it hardly if ever gets used or looked at. I should just add TechToolStore to my third party apps and use that to keep track of those apps I hardly use and just download what I need when I need it like I used to do with Ketarin. That would sure clean up the third party app section.
