DUAScriptGen – feature requests and bug reports?


I got the opportunity to present a few slides about Device Update Agent (DUA) for some training my team presented yesterday, and during that presentation I gave a demo of DUAScriptGen, and several people who hadn’t seen it before were interested in trying it out.  I wanted to consolidate links from some of Mike Hall‘s old blog posts and some of my old blog posts in one location for your convenience:

I also wanted to request any bug reports or feature suggestions you might have for a future release of the tool.  Here is a list of what I have heard so far that I’ve got on my list to implement/investigate:

  • Bug in how the execute command syntax is being generated – http://blogs.msdn.com/mikehall/archive/2004/05/18/134251.aspx#188652
  • Ability to parse and convert INF files for updates in addition to the Additional Notes that are packaged with Embedded database updates
  • Ability to specify ErrorMode values in the DUAScriptGen UI
  • Bug when importing .reg files that have DWORD values that are greater than 10 – DUAScriptGen needs to convert them from hex to decimal

If you have any additional items that I haven’t listed above, please post a comment on this thread or send me a direct email at aaronste (at) microsoft (dot) com and I will add it to the list.  Stay tuned for updates soon….

  2. Hi Richard – This link is dead now. I have posted an article with more information about DUAScriptGen at http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/articles/479475.aspx. In there you will find 2 alternative download locations for the latest version of DUAScriptGen:
