The "Data#bin" file passwords are stored in "Records.ini" so that installers can access and extract files.
The "Setup DLL" password protects the file with compressors and must also previously include "Records.ini" inside "Setup DLL" (merge) so that it does not allow external access to the "Records.ini" which contains the passwords of the files Data#bin. When using password in" Setup DLL by default the "DiskSpan GUI" will merge "Records.ini" into "Setup DLL".
If you use external "Records.ini" or don't put a password in "Setup DLL" just open the "Records.ini" to have access to passwords and finally access to the contents of the Data.bin files.

Hello
what is the method to use to compress a game with more than one language?
I created with diskspan this way:
game1 / game2 / game3 / game4


in game 1:
Compressed file name:
Data-1.bin

this is the game
in game 2:
Compressed file name:
Data-2.bin
Tasks: 1
this is language 1

in game 3:
Compressed file name:
Data-3.bin
Tasks: 2
this is language 2

in game 4:
Compressed file name:
Data-4.bin
Tasks: 3
this is language 3

at the end of the compression I got a following records.ini

Code:
[Record1]
Type=FreeArc_Original
Source={src}\data-1.unk
Output={app}\Unknown 1\
Disk=1
Component=1
Size=17.75 GB
Password=fabriceunkorepack

[Record2]
Type=FreeArc_Original
Source={src}\data-2.unk
Output={app}\Unknown 2\
Disk=1
Component=2
Task=1
Size=1.20 GB
Password=fabriceunkorepack

[Record3]
Type=FreeArc_Original
Source={src}\data-3.unk
Output={app}\Unknown 3\
Disk=1
Component=3
Task=2
Size=221.86 MB
Password=fabriceunkorepack

[Record4]
Type=FreeArc_Original
Source={src}\data-4.unk
Output={app}\Unknown 4\
Disk=1
Component=4
Task=3
Size=463.50 KB
Password=fabriceunkorepack
I created the setup
by activating task = 1
but the setup starts the installation then it closes automatically?
I am using Windows Phone Installer (DSG)

@fabrieunko
Your configuration is wrong in several configs.
Installation terminates because no date files will be listed, so this is considered an error (IsDoneError).
Use the last WPI DSG (U2) script that I updated last time.

Currently only CIU and ASIS are compatible with multi games (Components).
The Windows Phone Installer DSG does not support components, so if you use components with WPI, any files that have the Component= key in Records.ini will not be installed.

Another error is that all your Data files must have the value "1" in the name because when the file is split into parts (DVD) this number "1" will be incremented to "2", "3"... and so on.
You also cannot rename the Data bin files after they are created as this will cause disk seek errors in cls-diskspan.dll library.

So I leave the tip.
To use DiskSpan GUI with the "WPI (DSG)" script create just one "Game #" tab (because the script doesn't support using more than one "Game #" tab).
Create a "Data #" tab for the common game files and leave the edit "Tasks" empty, and create a "Data #" tab for each additional language including the task value in the edit "Tasks".

I have attached a preconfigured file to the post.
Close all instances of DiskSpan GUI and extract and replace the file "DSG_Settings" (attached) in the folder "Resources" and then run DiskSpan GUI again in Developer mode and view the settings for that situation.

ADITIONAL NOTES:
More than one value can be used in the edit "Tasks" or "Languages" by separating the values ​​with a comma ",".
Example: Tasks = 1,3,5 so in this case if task 1 or 3 or 5 is selected the corresponding Data file from the tab will be extracted.

You leave the original game folder.

Then use the include and exclude lists for files or folders.
Lists can be without text files or by directly adding the "Create/edit" button next to the "select" button in each list line.

Example:
Code:
Main Game: Data1.01.bin
>> Exclude List content below:
english\*
*eng.dat
spanish\*
*esp.dat
german\*
*ger.dat

Language 1 (english): Data2-01.bin
>> Include List content below:
english\*
*eng.dat

Language 2(spanish): Data3-01.bin
>> Include List content below:
spanish\*
*esp.dat

Language 2(german): Data4-01.bin
>> Include List content below:
german\*
*ger.dat
In the example above the files and folders in the "Exclude" list will be ignored on Data1.
In other files Data# uses the "Include" list, so only files and folders contained in the list will be included.
The "* is a wildcard, but paths can be given without the wildcard.
The path given in the list is always relative to the game's root folder selected for compression.

P.S: Load some presets from database in DiskSpan GUI (from another folder) and you will see examples (Most presets have lists).

DiskSpan GUI v2.0.0.4

Updated DiskSpan GUI to v2.0.0.4 in the first post (attachment reuploaded).
A large part of the code was redone after the last src was lost so some bugs that had already been fixed fixed in the previous version may re-exist in this version.
Special thanks to @KaktoR for all the work testing compressions and creating the DiskSpan GUI database configurations.

INFO:
Now "XTool Plugins" and "RazorTools" tools are no longer included in "DiskSpan GUI".
But you can download specific tools and plugins for a conversion or download them all or leave it so that when the conversion is performed the end user will be downloaded during the conversion (In this case, you need internet access during the conversion).
Code:
Changes:
- Added hint balloon in "Game #" tabs to inform the user of the game corresponding to the selected tab when there is more than one game configured. 
- Changed "XTool plugins" and "Razor Tools" items (except OodleRec) to download option (By default it will not be in DiskSpan GUI folder).
  >> In the developer mode method selection a tab has been added in the tab subgroup of the "ARC" tab to manually download the missing "XTool plugins" and "Razor Tools" if you want the full version to share.
  >> If there is no plugin in DiskSpan GUI folder (If not previously downloaded), during creation of "Setup DLL" the missing files will be downloaded (If connected to internet). 
- Added percentage display of database update progress.
- Added new /UPDATEDATABASE and /DOWNLOADONLY parameters to DiskSpan GUI.
  >> Using /UPDATEDATABASE parameter the database will be updated at startup.
  >> If combined parametters /UPDATEDATABASE with /DOWNLOADONLY it will download the database files to the same folder as "DiskSpan_GUI.exe".
- Added new tab for actions referring to file "Records.ini" in subgroup of tab "Setup DLL".
- Added new tab to "compress compression" in additional tools group (Clicking on "Tools" button). 
- Added checkbox "Keep On Top" to keep DiskSpan GUI above other applications during compression.
  >> The keep on top option is automatically disabled when clicking the "Tools" button. 
  >> The taskbar thumbnail is disabled when this keep on top option is checked. 
- Added export of database information by clicking on the "Save" button (developer mode) holding the CTRL + SHIFT keys.
  >> The active tab information will be exported to the clipboard. 
- Changed DiskSpan GUI behavior when selecting "Unlimited" media type tab.
  >> If Unlimited tab is selected without setting custom Size, CLS-DiskSpan.dll will not be used (the ":diskspan:<fdsize>:<odsize>" parameters will not be on the command line creating only one file.
  >> If Unlimited tab is selected and you only specify the size for FirstDisk, subsequent disks will all have the same size entered for FirstDisk (Before the rest of the size was only in one part). 
- Fixed some things regarding database update.
  >> Now the version of the database which will be updated will be displayed.
  >> Now when updating the database lists will be reloaded with new information after successful update. 
  >> Now the number of database items will be displayed on the label above the items lists.

There is a code example inside "_ISDone Script Example (DiskSpan_GUI)" folder you can adapt to your script.
