Recently I uploaded a screensaver to the nativepe server and discovered it was being recognized as a script file by wb. It said it was by the boot-land community, the generic descriptor. Actually, I noticed wb handled this extension some time ago but never thought on it until now.

Nuno, can you tell us exactly what file extensions winbuilder will handle as script files? Aside from .txt, is .scr the only other extension we may use for scripts? I seem to remember discovering some other(s) by accident previously but cannot recall what they were, thx.
For now I plan to cab the screensaver as a 'fix', which would leave the file with a .sc_ suffix. That should work.

That's strange.. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)


The only extensions used on wb are .script, .link and .project - I guess you mean the Download Center right?

Then I would consider this behavior as a bug since the .scr is likely being confused with .scr(ipt)

At one time I renamed a few scripts to the .scr extension. It works, you could update the registry via wb to 'fix' it. What's up w/ the audio sound keys that are updated on launch and shutdown of wb, is that intended?

On closing winbuilder the changes are reset..

The navigation sounds don't work while wb is running.
I'm using wb 72 final as most users will be using that version. I'm not sure if this changes with v 72a.

I actually like the fact that I can use the .scr extension for my scripts. Please don't fix that any time soon. I'd like to take advantage of it. I've confirmed it works.

Hmm.. Thanks for the debug info - it's the component used to incorporate IE inside wb.

It will add it's custom definitions to IE (which reflect on explorer of the host OS)

----

But the .scr detail is puzzling - I'll try not to remove this "feature" but will try to track the reason why it occurs.

Well,
I'll post details on that one ..

I just did a little test using winbuilder v72a as the guinea pig, changing the extension on a script several times.

I started from the top to see what was going on.

.s was recognized as a winbuilder .script file
.sc was recognized as a winbuilder .script file
.scr was recognized as a winbuilder .script file
.scri was recognized as a winbuilder .script file
( assumes the remainder )
next test,
.sx was not recognized as a winbuilder .script file
.scrx was not recognized as a winbuilder .script file
.scriptx was not recognized as a winbuilder .script file

That about summed it up.
".s", ".script", and everything in between will be loaded.

While ".scr" seems the perfect abbreviation, it's used as the system scrsaver extension. We have a few other extensions to choose from though if script authors wish to keep some data away from novice users. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
