To revive Austin's project, and a clean post....

POL Launch is a replacement for Starthere.bat that comes with the POL Distro, yet is able to be a standalone with any script base. This is utilizing the upcoming Project called POLUtils.

Tabbed Process to configure POL for the PC it is running on.
UOConvert automation via a nice GUI.
ECompile automation via a nice GUI.
POL Configuration via a Table Editable GUI.
Running POL with no Command Window, output given directly to the POL Launch GUI.
Account Creation and Basic Manipulation via GUI and Aux Svc.

POLUtils.DLL (Included)
ICSharpCode.ZipLib.DLL (Included)
.NET Framework 2.0 (it has been reported partial or full compatibility with Mono for Linux also, but not specifically programmed for Mono at the moment)
Thanks to the IRC hecklers: ncrsn and phao for feedback as well as RunTest.
And.. Luth.. who kept finding the theme variances between vista and xp >_< I hate colors as a result.. which is good because he picked out the foreground color.

Rev 1410 Compiled and attached.

Note: Package Root Editor is NOT fully complete. It will display the entries from the Config File, But I have not finished the full code for this yet (don't worry, it doesn't try to save anything or change anything either, hehe).

latest changelog entries:

Code: Select all

12-31-2008 - MuadDib
    Added   : Much more ECompile Tab work. Both Visual and Code wise.
              Path Editor in place for Ecompile.cfg. Does not open a new form, but
              rather makes the information visible in existing tab.
    Added   : The 3 main Directory Settings are now visible on the main Ecompile Tab
              and NOT just in the Editor.
    Added   : #region/#endregion to help organize the code and make it easier to navigate.
    Changed : Refactored checkbox1 to CB_StraightToPOL.
    Changed : Reorganized some of the Form Code to go with the new Regions updates.
    Added   : New Exception Form. In places where we add try/catch, if an Exception is thrown
              it opens a new form with Details about the Exception. It gives you a Copy To
              Clipboard button for the info, and a link to click on to report this crash
              to the forums. :P
    Changed : Updated existing Try/Catch sets to use new Exception Form.
    Fixed   : Threading issues with ProgressBar in UOConvert Console.
    Added   : Check to not display all the Converting: xx% lines etc from UOConvert.
    Fixed   : Threading issue with Clearing POL Output Textbox buffer.
    Fixed   : Bug where UO Client Data Path would have spaces in the PathName.
    Changed : Even more code organization for the main form. God I must be bored.
              I blame Nando aka Mr. Clean.
    Added   : Hidden Group Box for the Package Root Editor has been added, and code to
              hide/unhide it etc like the Paths Editor. Editor Itself is not coded yet.
              Still trying to decide the best method for this. Possibly will end up using
              Grid Forms to do this, with cells uneditable and set them via Browse boxes for
              the paths with ability to add new ones and delete existing ones.

But how is installed the service to create account by console?

The account creator will work with the Distro's Account Aux Service. If you look in distro, you will see the aux service, and can use it or can create your own to work the same/similar as that one.
