Thanks, Nuno for your last upload. smile.gif
I've tested 071 Beta11 and have the same error reported above and same errors in log with the new MMC.
Having lost the logic of the various projects, I can't say whether it's MMC or WB though....
However, as you can see, I've not given up yet wink.gif

Tried all scripts from the liveXP project available on the download center and they work very well - including MMC.

Your log errors happen because of some fixed variables which were removed, as example for %targetsys32% - you can archive the older wb 068 folder and download a fresh copy from the download center from a brand new folder.

This should solve all these issues. cheers.gif

Thanks again.
You're right. The errors are not due to WB, but to the changed syntax that makes many scripts or ini files obsolete.
To adapt them again to the new releases one should have a clear and complete vision of the syntax used and of the use of the various ProjectInfo.ini, script.project, etc, that perhaps should be uploaded together with the executable to ensure consistency. They could be used at least as a sample to show what is needed, which variables are defined, which ones are obsolete and no longer usable, etc.
Actually, losing everything at any new release of WB (or at change in the basic build, which is even more difficult to trace) is quite frustrating! sad.gif

I guess we're all in a learning process until things start being done in a more effective and long term manner.

Maybe you consider joining our effort to create a script standard to add programs to any project - look here: http://boot-land.net/winbuilder/help/scrip...pplication.html

The concept is that you can write your script to add a program and your favorite project can use it without changing a single line of code inside the script itself.

This should make scripts last much longer since they won't be dependable on individual projects.

At the moment some basics were already defined, but still missing some other good features like the ability to write the registry, start services, associate file extensions and such - more help is needed to ensure good results..

What do you think? smile.gif

Are these new macro commands that only work with selected projects based on nativeEX_Core?

The idea is to actually bring them possible to more projects like vistape and any other project in the future - at the moment I'm testing with liveXP, it's where you can run all the available application scripts at this moment.
