  1. This is how I install it: "%wpipath%\Install\Multimedia\Codec Packs\K-Lite Codec Pack v10.6.0 Full.exe" /verysilent /norestart /LoadInf="%wpipath%\Install\Multimedia\Codec Packs\K-Lite Codec Pack v10.6.0 Full - Unattended Settings.ini"As you can see I just put the full path for the INI file. No need for an SFX archive.

    Can't those two lines simply be removed from all languages files?
  3. WPI wont start Windows XP

    WPI has a bug that when an alert is issued before DHTMLx has been initialized it throws a javascript error. That's why error catching in conditions and other places doesn't work properly.

  5. It happened to me too but now it no longer shows, maybe they pulled the update?

    I don't know if this classifies as a bug but when I remove every keyboard except the one for my language the following keys and files for extra US-based keyboards are not removed: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts\00010409""HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts\00020409""HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts\00030409""HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts\00040409""C:\Windows\System32\KBDDV.DLL""C:\Windows\System32\KBDUSX.DLL""C:\Windows\System32\KBDUSL.DLL""C:\Windows\System32\KBDUSR.DLL"

  12. WPI 8.6 and beyond bug\bugfix thread

    I haven't noticed anything that could affect the installer in the changes and I never had any error myself, maybe it's IE10 or something else causing trouble?
  13. Sure, but having the source code still doesn't guarantee the code hasn't been tampered with, you can only be sure it's clean if you read the code line by line and then compile it yourself. As you can see though VirusTotal reports it being completely clean. I didn't bother adding the sources since it's just 3 API calls for setting the default applications (strangely nobody ever bothered to release a similar tool though) but I attached them to this post. WPI Tool.rar
  14. Description I made a little tool (attached to this post) that invokes the SetAppAsDefaultAll application registration API to set an application as default on Vista/7. It does exactly the same registration that is performed when you open "Program defaults" and set an application as default. NOTE: it doesn't work on XP/8 because that registration API is only available on Windows Vista and Windows 7. Windows XP and Windows 8 handle application registrations differently (Win8 blocks applications from changing defaults and XP instead has several different ways of which I can't figure if there is a proper one and which one it is). Syntax SetAppAsDefaultAll.exe /Action=SetAppAsDefaultAll /ProgID="Program Id"You can find the Program Id value you need in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RegisteredApplications registry key. Examples To set the latest Windows Photo Gallery 2012 as default: SetAppAsDefaultAll.exe /Action=SetAppAsDefaultAll /ProgID="WindowsLive.PhotoGallery.16.4"To set Windows Media Player as default: SetAppAsDefaultAll.exe /Action=SetAppAsDefaultAll /ProgID="Windows Media Player"To set VLC as default: SetAppAsDefaultAll.exe /Action=SetAppAsDefaultAll /ProgID="VLC"Extra The tool also supports waiting for a window to open (/Action=WaitForWindow /WindowName="Window Name" /Timeout=seconds) and closing a windowed application properly by sending WM_CLOSE to the window (/Action=CloseWindow /WindowName="Window Name"). SetAppAsDefaultAll.exe
