Hi coder14,

Deprecation plan for v3 printer drivers
coder14 wrote:For compatibility with older Windows I'm sticking with V3 drivers.
See the following:
JHPJHP wrote:Version 3 drivers are not guaranteed to be compatible with Windows 7, 8, 10.

Use both solutions: OSVersion()
- install the printer manually in Windows XP... create a Version 3 driver package from the installed files
- install the printer manually in Windows 10... create a Version 4 driver package from the installed files

Code: Select all

Procedure InstallPrinter()
  Select OSVersion()
    Case #PB_OS_Windows_XP
      
    Case #PB_OS_Windows_Vista
      
    Case #PB_OS_Windows_7
      
    Case #PB_OS_Windows_8, #PB_OS_Windows_8_1
      
    Case #PB_OS_Windows_10, #PB_OS_Windows_Future
      
  EndSelect
EndProcedure

InstallPrinter()
If you've downloaded the full package then you have the solution:

See the Services part of Services, Stuff, and Shellhook:
- StartStopService.pb: start / stop the Windows Spooler service
- WindowsServices.pbi: include file for the various Service Procedures

Updated:
- deleted 1 example
-- \Stuff\OtherStuff\SetCriticalFlag.pb
- added 1 example
-- \Stuff\CriticalFlag\CriticalFlag.pb

NB*: Applied a simple update to work in both the 32bit and 64bit Windows OS.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Hi Legrec,

Try the following:
- see the updated CriticalFlag.pb example for a working solution

Code: Select all

#ENDSESSION_CLOSEAPP  = $1
#ENDSESSION_CRITICAL  = $40000000
#ENDSESSION_LOGOFF    = $80000000

Procedure WindowCallback(hWnd, uMsg, wParam, lParam) 
  Result = #PB_ProcessPureBasicEvents 

  If uMsg = #WM_QUERYENDSESSION
    Beep_(1000, 1000)

    Select lParam
      Case #ENDSESSION_CLOSEAPP
        
      Case #ENDSESSION_CRITICAL
        
      Case #ENDSESSION_LOGOFF
        
    EndSelect
  EndIf
  ProcedureReturn Result 
EndProcedure 

If OpenWindow(0, 0, 0, 500, 200, "Set / Remove Critical Flag", #PB_Window_SystemMenu | #PB_Window_ScreenCentered)
  SetWindowCallback(@WindowCallback())
  Repeat : Until WaitWindowEvent() = #PB_Event_CloseWindow
EndIf : End

You can take the most innocent codes posts on these forums and use it in malicious ways. JHPJHP isn't the moderator of this forum, It isn't his job to worry about who's who. JHPJHP, don't let one rotten apple spoil your enjoyment of improving and sharing code. btw; Keep up the superb work bro. :wink:

Hi
Regarding the RestorePoints, there was an error in the DeleteRestorePoints procedure, here is the correction.
(It was searching for a line with a few keywords, but when there was a restorepoint with a long name, the powershell was cutting the output, and only the three first letters was showed, so i'm searching only for the "BEG" to find the appropriate line.
There was also another problem, that it didn't find alwatys the sequence number of the restore point, i fix it also)

Thank you very much for your code!

Code: Select all

Procedure DeleteRestorePoints(RestorePoints.s)
	Define.s dwEventType, PS_SequenceList, PS_Sequence
	
	If FindString(RestorePoints, #LF$)
		For rtnCount = 1 To CountString(RestorePoints, #LF$)
			dwEventType = StringField(RestorePoints, rtnCount, #LF$)
			nSearch0 = FindString(dwEventType, "BEG")
			
			Select #True
				Case Bool(nSearch0)
					PS_Sequence = Trim(Right(Trim(Mid(dwEventType, FindString(dwEventType, "BEG") - 20, 10)), 2))
					If PS_Sequence
						PS_SequenceList + PS_Sequence + ","
					EndIf
			EndSelect
		Next
		If PS_SequenceList : PS_SequenceList = Left(PS_SequenceList, Len(PS_SequenceList) - 1) : EndIf
	Else
		PS_SequenceList = Trim(RestorePoints)
	EndIf
	
	If PS_SequenceList : _DeleteRestorePoints(PS_SequenceList) : EndIf
EndProcedure
The only hic is that it takes time to delete..
when you open "SystemPropertiesProtection.exe" - "configure" and delete them manually it takes five seconds. i wonder if there is a possibility to delete them all together, and not one after the other, like you did

In fact, why not to use simple command-line cmd?
It take a few seconds to delete, much faster than the powershell command.

Code: Select all

vssadmin delete shadows /all

Hi Damion12,

Thank you for the "heads-up", a new link has been posted.

A similar problem occurred when I was with Dropbox, possibly due to the link containing a few executables.
- full source code is also available to compile and replace the existing executables

NB*: If you scroll down the first post, you will notice various links to all the individual sections contained within the main download.

Hi RichAlgeni,

Awhile back I did a complete rewrite of my original script; please try the updated code. It can be download directly from the first post using the InflateDeflate link.

NB*: Many of my scripts in the Services, Stuff, and Shellhook package have had updates, but I neglected to post any information about it.
