  2. Hey all Ok how do you make winnt.sif call wpi.cmd successfully??? Here is my winnt.sif [GuiRunOnce] %cdrom%\wpi\wpi.cmd everytime windows attempts to run this line... it cant find it!!!! now i am wondering if the %cdrom% variabel is the problem or what??? has anyone successfulyl been abelt o run WPI from cd?????
  3. Hey everyone i seem to be having the same issues as descibed in this forum.... post # 19 to be exact Forum link My directory structure is as follows: %cdrom%\WPI \SOFTWARE \APP1\ \APP2\ etc I get the same problems as NJDOUGLAS ... it seems that the wpi.cmd settign the current directory screws everythign up...... so that instead of the app's location being %cdrom%\software\app1 it becomes %cdrom%\wpi\software\app1 and then windows can not find it obviously.... anyone know how to fix this? Dave for reference heres my wpi.cmd @ECHO OFF REM Example, how to look for CDROM-drive. Must have a file to identify in its root (like WIN51 or WPI.ico). for %%i in (C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) do if exist %%i:\win51 set CDROM=%%i: echo Found CD-Rom as drive %CDROM% REM Determine the WPI startup path. REM if wpi should run off the cd the replace %~dp0 with %cdrom%. set wpipath=%CDROM% REM Force resolution to needed size for wpi interface. --start %wpipath%\common\VideoChanger.exe 1280x1024x32@85 -q REM Hide this command window. "%wpipath%\common\cmdow.exe" @ /hid REM Font installation - the smooth and customizable way. start /wait %wpipath%\common\fonts\fontinstaller.exe REM Special registry tweak needed. regedit /s "%wpipath%\common\wpi.reg" REM Make WPI directory the current directory. for /f "delims=: tokens=1" %%i in ("%wpipath%") do %%i: cd "%wpipath%" REM Start WPI and wait for its end start /wait WPI.hta cdswitch EN_WINXPMCE2 /r:/wpi/wpi.cmd exit :end
