ImgBurn API

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

First off thank you for such a good piece of software. I was wondering if there's an API for the engine? or an API for ImgBurn? Or anything that would allow using the burning capabilities from a third party software?

 

Thanks!

Thanks! I played with the switches a bit, they seem to work ok. A few things though, I couldn't get the "/INFO <file>" to work (probably my mistake), if I'm creating an ISO and the /SRC is not found and /CLOSE is specified the app doesn't exit, and when you close it manually the %ERRORLEVEL% is zero. Well, I understand that command line support is not the main feature =) I also wanted to suggest to have a parameter like /3DPARTYHWND which seems to me the easiest way to set up a communication between two apps (although COM would be great too =), then ImgBurn could SendMessage() different stuff to the app, like progress, etc in that case the main and progress windows may be hidden, instead a small window with ImgBurn copyrights etc could be show to give the credit to the author, hiding ImgBurn windows and using the app's ones may somewhat help with localization as well. I realize that this will probably not happen soon (if ever).. But if it does this will make ImgBurn invaluable =) Once again, thank you for an awesome software.

One wonders how many ImgBurn GUI's would suddenly be for sale on the net with that sort of functionality implemented. >_<

 

PS. This isn't a judgement on glut's intentions.

This would actually be very helpful for us in a corporate environment, and would definitely be a feature we'd pay for. Specifically, we'd like to give the user a no-frills interface (or auto-schedule a service to run) which would back up a set list of critical files to DVD.

 

There are a lot of burning APIs out there, but most of them are overpriced and buggy or bloated.

 

 

Cheers,

 

Jordan.

Jordan,

 

Send a PM to LUK! and he might develop something for your company.

 

But, don't forget about IBB project files combined with Scheduled tasks, to backup critical files. The IBB file is quite powerful.

 

Regards
