Winapp2.ini additions

Recommended Posts

I know from past experience deleting license.txt files can break some programs (admittedly only happened to me once but I've left them alone ever since).

 

The same here, I also leave them alone because of that.

Does it make sense to delete a program's License, Readme and WhatsNew files?

 

Nope. If you spot any more of these let me know and I'll nix them or exclude them

New Entry: jv16 PowerTools 2014

jv16 PowerTools 2014 is in the RC1 phase so I suggest that its cleaning code be added to Winapp2.ini

The entries listed below are very aggressive. These should not be in Winapp2.ini.

 

[Apple Installer Cache*]

[Apple MobileSync Backup*]

[Nvidia Graphics Driver Installation Files*]

[Realtek Driver Installation Files*]

Please do NOT remove the [Nvidia Graphics Driver Installation Files*] unless someone can point to a problem that it is causing. I've been removing this for months on Windows 7 and Windows 8 with no issues uncovered...at least on my systems. ^_^

After removing the NVIDIA Graphics Driver Installation Files, I tried 4 different registry cleaner programs and they all found NVIDIA driver related data as errors since the driver installations files were not present. I removed NVIDIA driver related data from the Windows Registry. After that, I was not able to update the driver or uninstall the driver either.

The [Nvidia Graphics Driver Installation Files*] does contain the warning

 

Warning=You will not be able to do an uninstall of your drivers without first reinstalling them.

 

I've always been able to download and successfully install new updates (either released or beta versions) right over the top of an old version of NVidia.

 

Changing [Nvidia Graphics Driver Installation Files*] from:

 

[Nvidia Graphics Driver Installation Files*]
LangSecRef=3023
Detect=HKCU\Software\NVIDIA Corporation
Default=False
Warning=You will not be able to do an uninstall of your drivers without first reinstalling them.

FileKey2=%ProgramFiles%\NVIDIA Corporation\Installer2|*.*|RECURSE

 

to

 

[Nvidia Graphics Driver Installation Files*]
LangSecRef=3023
Detect=HKCU\Software\NVIDIA Corporation
Default=False
FileKey1=%SystemDrive%\Nvidia|*.*|REMOVESELF

 

is a solution to the problem that Saad2011 aptly points out. I recommend this change be made. :) %SystemDrive%\Nvidia is an extraction folder that is used by the Nvidia installer when performing an update. After the update is completed, this folder is no longer needed or used.

will @siliconman01 and please go help the people in http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=39303 as this is their entry.

Things to consider

what happened to the warning?

Have nvidia changed in last few months?

Were we lax on testing?

Inquiring minds, yo.

There are two more posts in the conversation but I tired of copy pasting so search Nvidia within this topic if you want

the former entry in winapp2.

unsure of the time frame you mean by the term "former". As in pre-today? Or the way back machine's twisted metal version of winapp2?

if either, point still stands that they (s&s) have the most recent experience with it (of regular former contributors...not gonna expect the developers to sound off in that thread ;) )

The Nvidia in CCleaner as well as the "just removed" Nvidia entry in Winapp2.ini below

 

[Nvidia Graphics Driver Installation Files*]

LangSecRef=3023

Detect=HKCU\Software\NVIDIA Corporation

Default=False

FileKey1=%SystemDrive%\Nvidia|*.*|REMOVESELF

 

are the same. This folder is nothing more than the extracted files from the Nvidia installer. This extraction occurs when users download a nVidia graphics update and then run the installer. The installer extracts the files to the %SystemDrive%\Nvidia folder. It then installs the new nVidia files and completes the update. Once the update is completed, the extracted files in %SystemDrive%\Nvidia are no longer needed or used. Deleting them has no negative affect on a user's system.

 

At one time the entry below was included in Winapp2.ini

 

[Nvidia Graphics Driver Installation Files*]

LangSecRef=3023

Detect=HKCU\Software\NVIDIA Corporation

Default=False

Warning=You will not be able to do an uninstall of your drivers without first reinstalling them.

FileKey1=%SystemDrive%\Nvidia|*.*|REMOVESELF

FileKey2=%ProgramFiles%\NVIDIA Corporation\Installer2|*.*|RECURSE

 

FileKey2 was the entry that was causing problems with removing Nvidia graphics file because it was removing an huge folder named Installer2 which has the uninstaller.exe file in it. FileKey2 was removed a few months back and the warning was removed as well. If users have not updated Winapp2.ini since that error was discovered then they could definitely run into a problem with using CCleaner.

 

I am running 326.80 (which is a beta version of nVidia graphics for my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 graphics card) on my Windows 8 x64 Professional systems. And CCleaner V4.05 cleaning has done nothing to negatively impact the nVidia graphics software.

You can if you want however there is no "Panther" folder existing in older OSes like WinXP for a DetectFile or any cleaning.

What exactly is it doing to your windows 7 CCleaner_Fan?

 

Here is the way I've analzyed that format to work.....using Windows 8 as an example

 

DetectOS=6.2 = Show only on Windows 8

DetectOS=|6.2 = Show on Windows 8 and earlier versions of Windows, but not on versions later than Windows 8

DetectOS=6.2| = Show on Windows 8 and later versions of Windows

 

There is no option that states "Show on all versions (earlier and later versions) except Windows 8". So if you want code to show on all versions but the latest version of Windows which is Windows 8, you would set it as DetectOS=|6.1 which says show on Windows 7 and earlier versions but not on Windows 8 or later.

 

There needs to be a format that states "show on all versions but the specified version". For example:

DetectOS=|6.2| = could say "Show on all versions earlier than Windows 8, all versions later than Windows 8, but do not show on Windows 8.

Folder icons are missing text labels after hibernation or a certain period of time, so I have to restart explorer.exe. I can tell you this didn't happen when I took the advice saad2011 or the previous version of winapp2,ini.
