  1. Yes, this is a known issue, and while you have one sollution that will work, another (maybe more simple?) is to use the Autorun Executable as found on the Files Page Just right click and say "Run as Administrator", and since it is elevated BEFORE it runs WPIW, you only have to accept it once. then WPIW (and all the scripts it runs) are autmatically elevated (as in your solution)... Never hurts to have more than one way to solve an issue B)
  2. The answer below had it MOSTLY right...here's what works... UI /boot/syslinux/vesamenu.c32 TIMEOUT 15 MENU BACKGROUND /boot/isolinux/ScottLogo.png MENU AUTOBOOT MENU TABMSG MENU HIDDEN LABEL - KERNEL /boot/syslinux/config.c32 APPEND /boot/syslinux/syslinux2.cfg Make sure to use current syslinux or isolinux version of vesamenu.C32, etc. Turn off the default messages for auto booting and tab, HIDE the rest of the blank menu to avoid the lines, then after the delay, it will restart with your "REAL" config file. (adjust names as appropriate)... Scott
  3. Windows 7 RTM Programs Compatibility List

    Sorry to differ, but the ability to add the context menu's to the recycle bin isn't working due to a permissions issue on the registry entry for the recycle bin. So, I would say, this needs a small tweak (manual instructions posted in the CCleaner forums)
  4. It is probably related to the permissions and the UAC...Was UAC turned completely off? If so, then not sure why you couldn't modify the entries...look at the permissions. I know in Win7, even the registry permissions are a lot tighter. Also, be sure to "run as administrator" when to run the WPI.hta file...Or use the autorun executable that is on the sticky post, and run it as administrator... Scott
  5. New VM - VirtualBox

    try the new version - supposed to have added in some 3D acceleration!
  6. Thes would be mutually exclusive...I'm assuming you meant one or the other... As Kels said, this is sort of covered in the docs, so go read them...what you want to look for is "silent installers" of the products you mentioned...MANY of them exist - just google a bit. If there isn't one already made, the easiest thing to do is to learn/use "autoit" to make a script that hits the bittons for you...May not be "silent", but at least it is automated!
  7. ProgramAddons Cabs from nLite...

    OK, I'll agree that it can't be done in the same way...Nlite allows all sorts of fancier stuff using the inf file based install process in addition to running silent installers.... But it sure seems that there should be a way to either invoke WPIW or some other "post install" process to run a "silent" product install. I think that was all they were looking for... Personally, I suggest that you give tools like the Windows Post Install Wizard a look... http://www.wpiw.net
  8. Dual Boot CD... Win98 and WinPE 2.0... DONE!

    these are just the special image file format that the cdshell uses...go to the cdshell docs (do a little google) and there is a bitmap converter...
  9. I need help

    these are from my "firefox installation", where I add a .reg file using the regedit command and also use the "FILECOPY" command (a pull down) to copy the file to the common user desktop... cmd2[pn]=['regedit /s "%wpipath%\\Install\\firefox_bug_246078_rev3.reg"']; cmd3[pn]=['FILECOPY "%wpipath%\\Install\\firefox_bug_246078_rev3.reg" "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\\Desktop"']; Just edit as you need to...and put into the right commands on your configuration for that tool... Scott
  10. I need help

    there are some examples of this already in the docs (I think), but basically use the "FILECOPY" function and use "REGEDIT" to install the registry file. I'll try to remember to pots specifics when I get home... As for making the shortcut, if you know the information ahead of time, just make that file and then copy if into the right place... Good Luck!
  11. nlite suggested improvment

    Bloat is in the eye (CD space?) of the beholder...To me (and this is what I did), adding the compressed (7z) files to the CD, and having them be instqalled isn't that big a deal - especially to get the majority of the drivers. Sure, I left off video and sound - easy enough to DL later, but the others are worth it (to me). Basically, I do everything up to the ISO creation, then run the base DP installer to manipulate the files. For the "unattended" stuff, you do need to go in a clean the winnt.sif file a bit if you want to allow access to the "recovery console options", but no big deal... Anyway, like I said - "different strokes..." Scott
  12. [tool] addons2wpi converter

    Well, I just got back to this after a few days, and also ran into this sort of thing with the 1.2 version (by the way thanks for the simple yet sufficient GUI!!! ) I got the same sort of thing from the MS JAva "pack" off of the RYANVM space... I'm sure this is related to the parsing of the ini file, since this one, while "correct" is a lot different than any other I have seen, and probably has some specifics in it for the original intent. Easy enough to fix in the config.js or the WPI gui, and if I get a chance, I may look at the source code...Always wanted to play a bit with Delphi... Again, THANKS for a simple, but effective tool. Scott
  13. [tool] addons2wpi converter

    What was the specific file that was before the problem ones...Maybe posting the INF file would help Nuno debug it?
  14. [tool] addons2wpi converter

    Look at the cab/zip/whatever you had in the input directory just before CCleaner and FF (they are in alphabetical order)...My guess is that they have something "funny" in them. Scott
  15. [tool] addons2wpi converter

    One more minor thing...you don't need to set the order number explicitly in each entry. the fact that you have the "pn++" statement is sufficient. It would also make it easier to "add" as opposed to re-process addons to the existing config.js file. And if your adding "options", allowing us to pick the output file would also be "nice"... But as I said, this is over 80% of the hard work...(unfortunately, the last 20% of the "polish" takes way more than 80% of the total time invested before your done. Scott
