[REBOL] Re: newbieQ: Where and when Rebol tries to install itself ?

From: petr:krenzelok:trz:cz at: 7-Oct-2001 1:00

1) Follow Rebol docs and take care of path issue. However - there is a bug to which I haven't received any confirmation. Running rebo using -i (no-install) switch doesn't prevent you from installation, if rebol doesn't find user-prefs.r and prefs.r on path you start it from. 2) I tried to use Rebol on novell for some automatition. I put into login script following line: #f:\all-users\spy!\update-ini\update-ini.bat In my .bat I put cd F:\all-users\spy!\update-ini on first line, and on second line I start rebol -is update-ini.r If I wouldn't do that, rebol would be started from f:\public directory, so it would pop-up with installation on each machine, even if -i switch would be used. 3) My aproach failed on two machines. I have some suspicion, that if you once let rebol install onto your machine, executable always first try to take your registry info. All damned registry, haven't we asked RT to don't mess with damned MS thing? ;-) Holger, maybe you could confirm, if Rebol executable looks at registry first? -pekr-
