Single File setup for Windows 10

This process takes ~15 to 20 minutes on an old laptop. You must be connected to the internet for it to perform the download.

When run it sets up the following directories:


C:\maslow\backup C:\maslow\designs C:\maslow\docs C:\maslow\extras C:\maslow\ground_control C:\maslow\temp

C:\maslow\ground_control\firmware C:\maslow\ground_control\program

it copies groundcontrol.ini from the user directory to - C:\maslow\ground_control\program

It then makes a backup of the program directory Next it makes a backup of the firmware directory

these go to the C:\maslow\backup directory

After that it deletes most of these files

Next it downloads a single file with ground control and firmware to the C:\maslow\temp directory

From there it installs the windows portable Ground Control and the Firmaware to there respective directories and deletes the files from the temp directory when setup is completed

You can launch Ground Control by navigating to this directory and double clicking Launch Ground Control.bat

or paste this line in a commandline

C:\maslow\ground_control\program\Launch Ground Control.bat

This is handy for making a copy of your system for troubleshooting by re-running the program a back up with your settings is made in the backup directory you can locate the files by time stamp.

When I download and test this on my windows 10 laptop it gives me a warnning - I click more info and run anyway. I have scanned my system after running it and found no problems. It's a false positve error.

The files can be found from the Shared Files link on the Members page at:

Notes: This is base on a part of Windows called Powershell. This was fully scripted to work with the Github site and working for 2 months before a change to security made GitHub and Powershell not like each other without doing something extra. Basically Microsoft and Git got in to a contest. The results meant the user would have to jump though hoops downloading things and making security setting changes. Instead I went back to the drawing board and rewrote it. It works for now. Some future update from Microsoft may break it. As it is it doesn't like it's self from security stand point. I'd expect Microsoft tools used in a Microsoft environment wouldn't complain. What it really means is they want you to no longer develop independently but to join the app store.
