I'm trying to recover the data from my neighbour's laptop. My techie knowledge is just above his. His knowledge is zero.
Here is what happens when I run the program:
1) Double-click "PlugLab_Start.exe"
The Plugin Creator dialog box appears. There is a pop-up on top of the dialog with the message "This is the first time.....The help files have to be created." I have used the program several times, and the same message always appears.
2) Click OK to close the dialog.
3) Click "Select the PROGPATH"
4) Browse to:
The Set Key Parameters dialog box appears, populated with "iRecover" info, plus some defaults.
5) Modify any values.
6) Click "Create the Plugin"
Normally, a pop-up with the following message appears: "A folder with the name .... already exists". I change the setting and again click "Create the Plugin", but nothing happens because of the already existing file. So I need to close everything, delete the offending folder, and start again.
If the folder does not already exist, I get the message "Plugin creation done. Please run Autohelp.cmd to complete the new plugin. Edit the SCRIPTS\PlugLabSettings.ini and add functions to Autohelp.cmd as required.
7) Click OK
The dialog closes. Under the dialog is a (Windows?) error message: "Windows cannot find "c:\Program"
Where is Autohelp.cmd?
By the way, PlugLabSettings.ini is not in SCRIPTS. It's in PLUGIN_LAB
