How to create add-ons
« on: March 21, 2012, 10:37:05 AM »
Creating add-ons for the advanced system tweaker is simple. I have made a video explaining how to create add-ons.

I have 5 new add-ons created already but there's a few more I want to do but I had a question first before I post them up for sharing.

The tweaks I've made all had current keys/values in the registry that just needed to be altered. I have some more I want to do that need the key to be created if it doesn't already exist.

How does the Add-ons Creator handle that? Will it automatically create a key if it does not already exist?

If not, then I need to add: REG ADD to my tweak but then you run into the potential of duplicate keys.

How do I need to write my tweaks to make sure they work whether there is already a key or if a new key needs to be created?
I'm new to Tweaking.com but very experienced with computers and networks since the early 90's.

Right now the program does the reg in a basic way.

Anything in the Reg_Add section gets put into a .reg file and it is applied.

I haven't had much request for any changes yet, so right now I dont have the program work with the registry directly. I planned on adding it when it was requested.

Take a look at some of the other tweaks that work with the registry and you will see :wink:
