    Thanks Greg, I really appreciate it. As a test, I'm creating different colored icons for it (green, blue, and orange), and will have each one as it's own installer; that way, I should be able to test creation of ZIP files with StuffIt (which I've used before.)

    edit: Ohhh, just remembered: I've got 7-Zip installed. Gonna try that first.

    edit: Don't think it's working....gonna try Stuffit.

    Cool - another option is to see if you can get an old(er) DOS version of PKZip and try that. However you'd have to use the command prompt with your shiny new Vista PC but I bet you can handle it.

    Good point. PKWare has SecureZIP as well, which runs in Windows. Gonna D/L that and try it. Weird that WinZip is causing those problems; would really like to know "why", if for nothing more than my own curiosity.

    Someone really should write a tutorial on how to create a repository...I'd do it, but c'mon, does it look like I should be telling people how to do it?

    Thanks again, Greg! You've been an immense help.

    It would be more helpful if you mentioned what you did to fix your problem and are you able to install zip files made by Windows XP?

    Yeah I can install zip files made by windows xp. I accidentally had two instances of <key>scripts</key> in a row. still wondering how I can view i.unlock.no's xml file. I would like to add a few of them to mine.

    Add the source, refresh Installer, exit Installer, grab /var/root/Library/Installer/RemotePackages.plist, Seach for all the i.unlock.no packages.

    Try this one:

    I repackaged your zip and put the theme into a "themes" folder. The CopyPath might not like the space in the name, or it could have been the zip file. The install and uninstall worked for me.


  12. #32
    Ok Thanks! It must of been the zip because I also tried putting it into a themes folder and removed the space in the name. I tried creating the zip with windows xp and winrar. The fist zips I made worked fine with windows xp's built in utility, but those were just zipped files and now I am doing zipped folders

    Do I need to put a date on the xml for it? or do i just change the version number and installer will know that there is an update?

    You need to put a date on it or it won't show up in the Recent Uploads category.

    Also a good idea to put the hash in, as Greg said once, there's a good chance Nullriver will make that a requirement in the future...

    Well, it looks like my little question took on a life of it's own.

    I'm now trying to write an installer that simply changes the SpringBoard icon for an already-installed app; I want it to backup the existing icon (probably re-name it), then apply the new one. Obviously uninstall would delete the new icon and rename the old one back. Can't find any examples though, but I know I've seen some out there...

    trig what are you using to make the zips? I dont think you can make zips that contain folders on windows. The zip files have been giving me all the trouble.
