    After lots of testing by myself and many others, I think the query tool is final which will be v10 build 7. I am going to work on the actual project next, then do testing as well. Give me a couple days to address these changes within our project files and if testing goes good I will then add to first post of this thread.

    Thanks to all that have helped beta test the query tool. :worthy::hug2:

    Update: Got all scripting completed. I now need to add the new ECS oem to our project then do testing.

    You deserve all the rest you need. I never seen how dedicated the users of MDLF are, and most of them do it for FREE and it IS a lot better than a lot of the programs that people charge money to use.

    I will never charge nor ask for donations. This is a group MDL project and without everyone contributing it would have never continued. Thanks goes out to all that have helped since it has been under new development. :worthy::hug2:

    I think it was conflict and it's fixed, i think it should brand as motherboard model not the PC ? Just personal opinion

    Also #8 is HP not anything else in ini file? Nothing was touched in this regard. hmmm This one really gets me out of all the messed up queries. :confused:

    Seems with this project you fix a couple oem's and break others. There will never be a solid way of handling conflicts.

    We can make yours work by editing script but what about other HP's? Will it break those? See where my frustration kicks in? Even with only HP oem there are variations that we cant keep up with.

    @apologized, did the fix work for your HP machine? I hope so. lol Please let me know your results.

    The problem in your situation was that the first or second query was not defined (not included in the ini file thus returned blank so it continued to the third which was defined but when compare happened, it nulled both. I fixed this by these two lines of code...

    Code:
    IF NOT DEFINED MANA IF DEFINED MANB SET MANA=%MANB%
    IF NOT DEFINED MANB IF DEFINED MANA SET MANB=%MANA%
    which made the rest of variable check go smoothly...
    Code:
    IF /I NOT "%MANA%"=="%MANB%" SET MAN=%MANB%
    IF /I "%MANA%"=="%MANB%" SET MAN=%MANA%
    And it was fixed after this additional code. :)

    Remember with the new ECS oem it is only good for win7 starter edition. It was the only key I could find. o_O
