Who prepared the Russian eCS DemoCD??

Hi all (Eugene particularly :-)

I'm looking for the packager of the Russian version of DemoCD, as he solved a couple of problems that I'm not able to resolve while building the Italian DemoCD:

1) I can't get the right icon for firefox.exe
2) Setting for desktop background is not 1x1

I see both bugs are not present in Russian DemoCD, so, I'm here to ask help :-)

Thank you and bye
Gabriele

And what icon Firefox has on your build?
I have not remember that I was doing something around this icon, except one thing - I have created two versions of demo-disk: a copy of English one (where Firefox resides on a RAM-disk), and a less memory-consuming (where Firefox works from a CD-ROM). One of changes was in the \ECS\INSTALL\DESKINI\007\ECSUTIL.RC0 file:
--- standard RAM-version ---
"PM_InstallObject" "Firefox;WPProgram;<WP_INTERNET>;RELOCATE" "EXENAME=@APPDRIVE@\firefox\firefox.exe;STARTUPDIR=@APPDRIVE@\firefox;PROGTYPE=PM;MINIMIZED=YES;OBJECTID=<MOZILLA>"
--- CD-version ---
"PM_InstallObject" "Firefox;WPProgram;<WP_INTERNET>;RELOCATE" "EXENAME=@APPDRIVE@\firefox.cmd;STARTUPDIR=@APPDRIVE@\;ICONFILE=@SYSPATH@\ECS\FIREFOX\firefox.ico;PROGTYPE=PM;MINIMIZED=YES;OBJECTID=<MOZILLA>"
As in this version Firefox is started from a cmd-file, I have to add an "ICONFILE=" parameter to the setup string. Try to do this too.

Gabriele wrote:2) Setting for desktop background is not 1x1

This is determined by a line in the \ECS\INSTALL\DESKINI\007\INI.RC:
"PM_SystemBackground" "DefaultDesktopBackground" "@SYSPATH@\OS2\bitmap\ECS_DESK.BMP,s,1"

"s,1" at the end means "type of placement - scaling; scaling factor - 1:1".
And, again, I have not changed this, in the English version this line is absolutely identical.

Yuri, thank you very much for your answer

As you imagined, everything here was already as you suggested. After your message, I downloaded also the German and Dutch version, and in those the problems I have are not present. So, they were fixed not only for the Russian version, like I erroneously understood from a conversation with Bart van Leeuwen.
Seems like I should ask BLV to force himself ro remind how he solved those problem :-)

Thank you again for your reply and my best wishes
Gabriele

BTW, it is a pity not having \DEMOCD\RU_RU directory on CVS server!

I doubt that those problems were fixed. Most probably, they did not exist at all, and this issue is with your (local?) files only.

Russian versions of eCS and demo-disk just do not fit to the CVS directory structure - many files, which are in the COMMON branch on the CVS, are translated to Russian on our side.
But nevertheless, you can download an image of demo-disk and compare contents of \ECS\INSTALL\DESKINI directory (only this one is relevant to your problem) against your files with tool like GFC. Or I can send this directory to you (it's less then 50 KB).

Gabriele, there is yet one possible cause for your problem. Check carefully all text files (.cmd, .rc, etc) - some of them may be in Unix format (line ending with CR instead of CR LF).
