Hi Guys,

Does any one here already package UltraEdit v9.0 and v14.10.0.1024?
This is the new version of UltraEdit. Is this different from UltraEdit32?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi,

I just finished packaging version 14.20.
UltraEdit 14.20 comes as a MSI.
The registration is written to a uedit32.reg file. The pop up windows, when first launching Ultra Edit (i.e. File Associations, Check for Updates, Tips) are written to the uedit32.ini file.

At first glance UltraEdit puts these files in the user profile application data folder, but you can just put these files in the installation directory and ultra edit will find them at first launch.

I made the following change in the uedit32.ini as well.
The Path of the TaglistFilename and the Language File are both pointing to their location in the User Profile App.data folder. The TAGLIST.UET EN WORDFILE.UEW files already exists in the installation directory, so you can redirect them to that.

TagListFilename=C:\Program Files\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit\TAGLIST.UET
Language File=C:\Program Files\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit\WORDFILE.UEW

I used Install Tailor for this one.
I deselected all the changes that were made to the properties to exclude them from the transform, which held any "Default User" or better yet, 'ProfilesFolder' information in the path name.

Added both the uedit32.reg and uedit32.ini file to the MST. To get the correct uedit32.reg file, install UltraEdit, register it and save that file somewhere. It's in the users profile app.data IDM/Ultra Edit folder, so is the uedit32.ini.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the great instructions, gizsha!

Has anyone figured out how to disable the 'Check For Updates' option when packaging UltraEdit 14.20?

Also wanted to add that while the uedit32.reg file was located under the user profile, the uedit.ini file installed to C:\Windows for me.

Secondly, my uedit32.ini file already defaulted the TagListFilename and Langauge File to the appropriate locations so no editing of this file was necessary.

Got this from IDM:

The locks are set in the INI file or the Registry.

By default the locks are not set. UltraEdit reads the settings first from the INI file. After this it reads the registry. If the values are NOT found in the Registry the INI values are used, otherwise the Registry values are used. If the vales are not found in the INI file or the Registry the locks are not set.

The INI values are:

[Locks]
FTP=1 ; locks FTP
DOSWIN=1 ; locks Dos/Windows program running
ToolsCfg=1 ; locks Tool Configuration
Browser=1 ; locks viewing files in the browser
Macros=1 ; locks macro functionality
RevertToSave = 1 ; locks Revert to Save
Compare = 1 ; locks File Compare
Conversions = 1 ; locks all items in Conversion Sub-menu FileSpecial = 1 ; locks File Special Sub-menu features
QuickOpen = 1 ; locks Quick Open
SaveAs = 1 ; locks Save As and Save Selection As
Projects = 1 ; locks all project functions
HexEdit = 1 ; locks HEX Editing
SpellChecker = 1 ; locks Spell Checking
Lists = 1 ; locks all lists from view menu
Colors = 1 ; locks color selection
Formatting = 1 ; locks Reformat Paragraph and convert wrap/crlf's
Column = 1 ; locks column mode functions
Configuration = 1; locks Configuration
Templates = 1 ; locks templates functions
AddHelp = 1 ; locks Add Help function
ReadOnly = 1 ; locks Read Only
Updates = 1 ; locks Check for Updates
Explorer = 1 ; locks Explorer tab of File Tree View

The Registry values are DWORD values under the key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit\Locks\

The DWORD values are:

FTP=1 ; locks FTP
DOSWIN=1 ; locks Dos/Windows program running
ToolsCfg=1 ; locks Tool Configuration
Browser=1 ; locks viewing files in the browser
Macros=1 ; locks macro functionality
RevertToSave = 1 ; locks Revert to Save
Compare = 1 ; locks File Compare
Conversions = 1 ; locks all items in Conversion Sub-menu FileSpecial = 1 ; locks File Special Sub-menu features
QuickOpen = 1 ; locks Quick Open
SaveAs = 1 ; locks Save As and Save Selection As
Projects = 1 ; locks all project functions
HexEdit = 1 ; locks HEX Editing
SpellChecker = 1 ; locks Spell Checking
Lists = 1 ; locks all lists from view menu
Colors = 1 ; locks color selection
Formatting = 1 ; locks Reformat Paragraph and convert wrap/crlf's
Column = 1 ; locks column mode functions
Configuration = 1; locks Configuration
Templates = 1 ; locks templates functions
AddHelp = 1 ; locks Add Help function
ReadOnly = 1 ; locks Read Only
Updates = 1 ; locks Check for Updates
Explorer = 1 ; locks Explorer tab of File Tree View

The Advanced Menu would be locked by setting the "Configuration", "Templates", "DOSWIN" and "ToolsCfg".

BTW, the pop-up gizsha was referring to that appears after the initial application launch only allows you to disable automatic updates. To disable the 'Check For Updates' options that appears in the 'Help' drop-down menu. You have to use the locks mentioned above either in the uedit.ini file or in the registry.

Gah, now the uedit32.reg and uedit.ini files are being copied to the user profile. WTF? Anyhow, I had to place the uedit32.ini file in the C:\Windows directory, not the UltraEdit install directory. If I place it there I get an error when the app launches that the file is missing. Not sure why it's different for me...

Hi All,

I have just finished packaging for UltraEdit 14.20. Have found something helpful and sharing with you all.

To suppress FileAssociation at startup the string name is CheckAssociation and the value should be set to zero (0). and the file name is - %Appdata%\IDMComp\UltraEdit\uedit32.ini

But this sometimes may not work and fileassociation prompt may not get suppressed. Here is the solution -

Use another string Version=v14.20 (in my case) in the same ini file. This would help to suppress the prompt during startup.
