Rob van der Woude's Scripting Pages

News Page

On this page I'll report on changes to my web site or related news items.

Don't expect a full-blown weblog, more like a list of highlights in shorthand.


For a file based list of changes look at the What's New list.

Use ChangeDetection's button, located at the bottom of each page, to receive an e-mail when that particular page changes, with the changes highlighted.
Note, however, that this could mean subscribing to 439 individual webpages (besides hundreds of source text files), and still you wouldn't get notified of new pages. By subscribing to this news page only, you'll be notified of all "important" updates and changes and new pages.

Note: Do not try to subscribe to the What's New list; even without any changed page at all, this list will automatically change almost every day!


CaptureDate.exe has been updated: it still displays an image file's capture date and time, but besides that, with the new optional /S switch it will also set the file's timestamp to the capture date and time.
BootState.vbs and BootState.ps1 are the VBScript and PowerShell versions of BootState.exe.
Hardware.hta has been updated: it can now run in WinPE and safe mode too (though it won't be able to get all the hardware details available in a "full" Windows environment).
BootState.bat is the batch script version of BootState.exe.
• For a project I needed to have my script check if Windows was booted normally or from a Windows PE DVD-ROM.
To detect Windows PE, just check if the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\MiniNT exists: if it does, you are running in WinPE (tip by Mitch Tulloch).
My new BootState.exe goes one step further: it not just checks for WinPE, it also checks for Safe Mode!

Thanks Mitch
