    Hi,

    How do you use bundle32.exe? I am trying to extract the config of one machine and then create a package that I can push to other devices.

    One of the docs says to use bundle32 with a *.reg file. OK, but how?

    Hi,

    Have a look at this doc:

    http://www.freewysemonkeys.com/site/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=11

    Basically its these steps:

    – Configure a terminal the way you want
    – From Rapport in the Device manager right click and select “get device config”
    – From the Package manager – Device configs drag and drop your new config onto device manager and select the new terminals to push this back to.

    You can also bundle this up with an image you download off the Wyse site and push the whole lot out. With Rapport Enterprise you can also have this happen automatically for you.

    CHeers,

    Hi,

    That is the document I had been looking at. It says “Use bundle32 to generate an add-on”.

    I would if I knew how to use it. The only files you seem to end up with after getting the device config is a *.reg file and a text file.

    I looked at bundle32 /? but that doesn’t help a lot.

    TIA

    You have it, bundle32 is controlled from the Rapport GUI, the get config action pulls the registry from the terminal. Boot the terminal holding down the the G-Key at the same time – this will reset the unit to factory defaults (there is a gui for this under system I think).

    Now drag and drop your device config back on to the terminal in device manager. The terminal will be setup again as you had it. Give ity a go, there are loads of other things you can do but this is a good start,

    Bundle32.exe can definitely be used separately from rapport, and it appears that you can do some things with bundle32 from the command-line that you cannot do from Rapport; for example, you can combine several separate .reg files (i.e., registry “overlays”) into one bin file, or combine an addon binary with a registry file that JUST configures settings for that addon. You can then push the whole lot via FTP.

    The problem is that there seems to be no documentation anywhere on how to use bundle32 from the command line. A freewysemonkey user nicknamed “paintchip” said his Wyse rep sent him some instructions and some batch files to make the job easy, but he didn’t post the “secrets.” (see http://www.freewysemonkeys.com/site/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=922&highlight=#922)

    I’ve figured out how to get it working partially (getting some hints by running the executable through the UNIX strings command); e.g., I created a control.txt file with “k” (a small binary file in the RptBundle32 directory) on the first line and a.reg file on the second line to create a “binary” registry update which I successfully deployed; however, I couldn’t figure out how to generate a params.ini file, and I’m sure there’s other cool functionality I don’t know about.

    If anyone has some knowledge of how to use this utility, please post or email me.
