That is a good boy, now you are starting to behave.

I sincerely hope they find a cure for whatever you have soon.

Windows XP Professional SP3 in real computer,

Finally, do you know which key you pressed ?

Windows 7 beta in virtual machine

So, you will be able to test the modified sdminst.exe  safely  ?   :)

"Create partition", "Two partitions" - without SD card in reader.

I thought I would abstain from reading for a time, but I cannot stop, it's only getting better...

Here is new version of the SDM installer.

I do not have a 'virtual machine' to test this on.

Do not try this at home !

Could be even worse if you try it at work ...  :D

wim

edit: gave it a quick try, it seems to auto-search for removable devices, and disable
        dangerous buttons ( = all but exit ) when none found. Would IMHO be even more
        secure if the logic was reversed, i.e. disable by default, enable after finding an approved device
        Not sure if the Cmd window for formatting is 'by design', but just thought i'd mention that you
        could use silent formatting by using 'echo | format {params}'
        BTW there's a discrepancy in the size indication (see attach)

why is the folder that contains scripts and lang files still called CHDK in the sdm release? you should rename it.

Well, this version is more safe than previous.
But because drive selection combobox is not read-olny, we can erase manualy text on it, then format our hard drive  ;)
Suggestion: make drive selection combobox read-only.
Screenshot in attachment.

... or do a sanity check on the command line params, before passing it to format

wim

edit: maybe both is even better  :D
