smartmontools-5.39-1.win32-setup.exe configure drive menu incorrectly

Reported by: Dan Lukes Owned by: Christian Franke
Priority: minor Milestone: Release 5.40
Component: all Version: 5.39
Keywords: win32 installer Cc:


  1. Downloaded smartmontools-5.39-1.win32-setup.exe
  2. Installed with custom-type install; selected Program FIles, Uninstaller, Add install dir to PATH, Add (smartctl -a | smartctl -t long) into drive menu.

Installation has been completed successfully.

The items in drive menu doesn't work. I extracted from the registry that smartctl -a invoke
"C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin\smartctl-run.bat" -a %L

But there is no "C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin\smartctl-run.bat" installed.

I don't know what's the function of smartctl-run.bat ...

Bug in installer.nsi: smartctl-run.bat is only created if "Start Menu Shortcuts" is selected, but is also needed if any of "Add smartctl to drive menu" is selected.

Workaround: Install with "Start Menu Shortcuts" selected. The shortcuts can be safely removed after installation.
