5th July 2005, 20:25
I have read the faq and other posts from kichik about the rules. I have tried to adhere to them to the point that i feel guilty for actaully posting :p
However, could someone direct me in a method to change/add a custom image to the main dialog, i.e. a banner that replacess the big white space that i have at the moment.
Nothing i do seems to work, i cant replace the res using reshacker, as it just doesnt work.............any help?
I am lost :(

you want to edit the bmp dialog to the full width and also take out the label controls then your header img needs to be about 497 to 500 by 57
the file to edit is modern_headerbmp.exe however its probley better to make a copy of that name it say fullheaderui.exe
and in your .nsi script have
in the interface settings area this line of code
!define MUI_UI_HEADERIMAGE "fullheaderui.exe"

Thanks for your help, however i cant chnage the bmp in resource, hacker. It just wont let me do it :(
What am i doing wrong?

I have no idea - it's very easy. Make a copy of the Contribs\UIs\modern_headbitmap.exe and open it with Resource Hacker. For dialog 105>1033 just stretch the BMP image using the small grey squares.
Once done, click on the Compile Script button and then File>Save.

Have you defined MUI_HEADERIMAGE and MUI_HEADERIMAGE_BITMAP?
