WinappDebug - A tool to find error in your winapp2.ini file


TheWebAtom

Recommended Posts

Thanks to help from Robbie Ward (User: winapp2.ini); I've made this very simple console app to detect common errors with your winapp2.ini file.

How do I use it?
Simply place 'winapp2.ini' in the same folder as 'WinappDebug.exe' and run the tool. It will output a list of errors that it detects.

What kind of errors does it detect?
- Starting and trailing whitespace
- LangSecRef, FileKey & RegKey spelling errors
- Spaces in environmental variables
- Missing numbers next to FileKey and Regkey entries
- Missing backslashes next to environmental variables
- Incorrect usage of the 'Detect' & 'DetectFile' commands.

It's not working! HELP!!!
WinappDebug requires the Microsoft .NET Framework to be installed on your computer. Make sure winapp2.ini can be accessed by the tool by closing any programs you are using to edit it.

MetaScan results show 1/40 security products incorrectly detect WinappDebug as malware. If you have any concerns, you're welcome to compile it from the source code below ;)

@ TheWebAtom: I know the coding language will have a look and see if I can help you out.

 

This thing can grow to become really big and helpful.

It would be grat to add a check routine for that :

working of Excludekey: I think these Excludekey should not work, because you use | instead of \, cause Excludekeys work like this.

 

 

also true !!!!

 

but second bug:

ExcludeKey1=FILE|C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\Musik\1.txt;2.txt

 

; dont work, serperate each file ......

It might be a good addition to detect if the "Default=False (or True)" is missing.   :)

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.
