How to config CDIMAGE?

Post by thomas »

Hello,

I want to integrate the microsoft tool CDIMAGE, but I don't know how to set the correct variables.

Code: Select all

CDIMAGE 2.54 CD-ROM and DVD-ROM Premastering Utility

Copyright (C) Microsoft, 1993-2007. All rights reserved.


Usage: CDIMAGE [options] sourceroot targetfile

ISO 9660 options: These options cannot be combined with Joliet or UDF options

	-n  Use to allow long file names (longer than DOS 8.3 names)
	-nt Use to allow long file names, but restrict those names for
	    NT 3.51 compatibility
	-d  Use to allow lowercase file names

The length of the file name plus the length of the file name extension shall
not exceed 30 characters for the ISO 9660 file system.  ISO 9660 is the most
widely compatible of the three available file systems produced by CDIMAGE.

NOTE: The (-nt) option cannot be used with the (-d) option
Can somebody help me please?

Only by using User Menu, because this tool doesn't provide any means to pass a list of files to it. The only way is to call it upon a directory, so User Menu. But you could use mkisofs. (At least from what I can see in your post.) Or a plugin.

Here is a GUI version http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/15/

My playing around with CDIMAGE shows me that the app is not forgiving. If you have 1 error, it aborts; if you are using the disc as the original and there is an error, it aborts. You do not get any errors or logs and hard to troubleshoot. :( If you can get it working, that would be awesome. :D

You can download mkisofs for Windows from http://smithii.com/cdrtools (I prefer to use the mingw32 version; I also tried the cygwin version, but it didn't work for me). To set it up, you go to Options > Configuration... > Archivers > Packers in Pack Dialog Box, add an entry, name it what you want, enter the full path to the mkisofs.exe into the Command field, and as Arguments this:

Code: Select all

-iso-level 3 -R -J -l -o "$(ArchiveFullName)" -path-list "$(ListFullName)"
Unfortunately, this doesn't work very well, because the filenames are all wrong. But it is a start.

Hi ether thanks for your help,
but the argument doesn't works for me.
I've tried some other arguments but there is a problem with long file names and directories.

Code: Select all

-iso-level 3 -R -J -l -o "$(ArchiveFullName)" @$(ListFullName)
