    Thanks to one and all for your work on this.
    Hi Cowtown,

    Sounds like the download is corrupt. I am currently packaging up Pretool 0.8.
    Hopefully within the next few hours I will upload it after I test it out on my other machine.

    Check this version out and let me know how you go.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Hi guys,

    I have a new installer for version 0.8. Thanks to those who installed 0.7 I think we should now be at the bottom of some issues.

    I think I have fixed the issues of IPK's installing under 32 bit OS's. (I had some logic errors)

    I have fixed IPK's installing on new Pre's. (Ones without /media/internal/developer)

    I hope I have fixed xorgs issue with the drag and drop not working either.

    Please post your feedback so we can create a WIKI and get others onboard.

    Thanks!!

    Instructions:
    ======================
    Download PreTool0.8 Installer.zip from PreTool 0.8 Installer.zip - Windows Live and extract the contents to a folder.
    If you have a copy or webosdoctorp100ewwsprint.jar to the same folder. (If not it will be downloaded for you)

    To install PreBrew double click "Setup.vbs" and follow the prompts.

    A shortcut called "Drop File Here To Install Pre App" will be placed on your desktop.
    Drop an IPK file over this shortcut to install the file to your Pre. (Ensure your Pre is in Developer mode)

    Tested On:
    ======================
    Windows 7 (64bit and 32bit)
    Windows Vista (32bit) see known issues below.

    Known Issues
    ======================
    Java may not download if it is not installed. Softpedia seems to cache your visit so I don't think downloads will work. If anyone knows of a fixed location for Java or can host it please let me know.

    For some reason you can't drop IPKS on to the created shortcut in Windows Vista. To resolve this delete the shorcut and create a shortcut as below...

    64bit OS
    STARTIN: "C:\Program Files (x86)\PreBrew\"
    TARGET: "C:\Program Files (x86)\PreBrew\InstallApp.bat" %1

    32bit OS
    STARTIN: "C:\Program Files\PreBrew\"
    TARGET: "C:\Program Files\PreBrew\InstallApp.bat" %1

    Other Commands
    ======================
    PreTool (installed to C:\Program Files\PreBrew (on 32bit Systems) or C:\Program Files (x86)\PreBrew (on 64bit Systems)) contains various command line options as shown below.

    USAGE
    ======================
    PreTool EMU -i myapp.ipk (Installs myapp.ipk on emulator)
    PreTool USB -i myapp.ipk (Installs myapp.ipk on Palm Pre)
    PreTool EMU -l (List installed PreBrew applications.)
    PreTool USB -l (List installed PreBrew applications.)
    PreTool EMU -r com.myapp (Removes myapp on emulator.)
    PreTool USB -r com.myapp (Removes myapp on Palm Pre connected via USB.)
    PreTool EMU -c COMMAND COMMANDARGS (runs a command on emulator)
    PreTool USB -c COMMAND COMMANDARGS (runs a command on Palm Pre connected via USB)
    PreTool -d (Disables Developer Mode.)
    PreTool -PreBrew (Enables PreBrew.)
    PreTool -drv (Checks for Novacom drivers and installs if neccessary.)

    NOTES
    =======================
    If any of the download links for Java or WebOSDoctor change you can change their locations in "Setup.xml"

    Finally, something works on W7 x64. I would recommend that you pre-package the Java installer and create two versions of your app for x86 and x64. It did not correctly download Java for me, so I downloaded Java manually, placed it in the folder and renamed it. Great stuff though.

    When creating the new shortcut for Vista 64 when I get to the "C:\Program Files (x86)\PreBrew\InstallApp.bat" do I need to type the %1 at the end of the line before I create the shortcut?

    I'm also stuck. I ran the installer and it seemed to go fine, but I don't have the shortcut, nor do I have C:/Programfiles/Prebrew. . .

    Running XP I think at work (I'm a Mac person so all the windows looks the same to me. . . )

    Greg,
    Downloaded Version 0.8, set it up setup.vbs and still the same a red circle with a line through it. So I saw your list of known issues. I deleted shortcut and created another by going to new, shortcut and in the browse area I copied and pasted what you had as the target. I saw the icon on the desktop and tried to drag and drop the .ipk file to no avail.

    I then tried to drag it onto the .bat file directly and still nothing. There are quite a few in this thread who have Vista 64 who are having the same or similar problems.

    I know your busy but if you find a chance please look into this. I really want those apps.

    After you create the new shortcut, right click on it.. go to properties. You will then be able to add the line in TARGET:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\PreBrew\InstallApp.bat" %1

    Hope that helps..

    When I try to click the setup button an error comes up telling me that I need Windows thats compatible with 64-bit. Any help?

    I'm new to this. I apologize for this but i'm not really sure what to do after I install the pretool. I click setup and 2 boxes with a lot of numbers comes up... then a box shows up saying i need windows thats compatible with 64-bit, to contact the developer and ask them if they have a 64 bit software. I have windows Vista... please help.
