hello,

When I compile the bat file and I include a registry key that I want it to copy to a directory the key copies but with 0kb size.

here is the batch file

@echo off
mkdir C:\setup
copy key.reg C:\setup
regedit /s C:\setup\key.reg


as you can see it does insert the key in the registry but it doesn't take effect because its 0kb

am I doing something wrong? When I choose the key in the include window its 7kb but it seems that after compiling it loses the data.

Thanx for all your help

I've had the same problem, with many file types. Copy your code into the clipboard, exit QBFC, open QBFC, then paste the code, attach the files, and recompile. I've had to do this a lot, it seems to be a bug. Just make sure the exe is bug free before you assume that it works.

Can you give an example or correct this bat file to show use of %myfiles%?

copy /y proxy.reg C:\WINDOWS\proxy.reg
reg import C:\WINDOWS\proxy.reg
del C:\WINDOWS\proxy.reg

I am trying to copy proxy.reg from an attached (included) file

I believe you need only the following . . .


start file ************************************

:: Use the line below when you compile
set compile=%myfile%\

:: Use the line below to test before you compile
:: set compile=

reg import %compile%proxy.reg


*************************************** end file

This was posted . . .

@echo off
mkdir C:\setup
robocopy /e /eta key.reg C:\setup
regedit /s C:\setup\key.reg


QuickBFC has its own "setup" directory - just use that to avoid the file copy.

As an alternative to the "copy" command, try robocopy.exe (google it)


However, since the copy is really an extra unneeded step, try below.


start file ************************************

:: Use the line below when you compile
set compile=%myfile%\

:: Use the line below to test before you compile
:: set compile=

regedit /s %compile%key.reg


*************************************** end file
