Using InstallWatch...

Once you have the registry changes from installation of a new program. How do you proceed to making them usable in a script? Do you need all categories of registry changes?

Could using InstallWatch be a subject for a future tutorial?

You can use the reg2WBS tool to convert .reg file to WinBuilder script.

I'd gladly do a tutorial with it.

Yes, these are free; there are two programs: InstallRite and InstallWatch
They are available here: http://www.epsilonsquared.com/ (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Installrite is really nice - especially when you run it directly on the PE.

And I do all my WinBuilder scripts this way:

I use my project 'nativeEx_trackWBInstall' and define the setup exe I want to use, in this case the 27 mb sized avast 4.8

Then I build my project and start it in VirtualBox
I type 'track' and the installation of avast is performed.
After Installation I get some snippets which can be directly inserted into a WB script:
Registry entries:

Directories to create and files to copy:

Of course, a complete collection of the files:

Currently there are some issues:
How to bring some info from a VW w/o network to the host?
The current soution uses a VMWare disk, and is rather complicated, a lot of steps to be done manually.
I'm working with TerryE about using the vdi innside a WB script.
As soon as we have a reasonable solution, I'll publish.
