WIHU Helper for Windows Installation Helper Utility (http://www.kalytta.com/wihu.php)

  • Description:

    • To use filenames in WIHU with wildcards like * (asterisk) and ? (question mark)
    • So you are able to replace a file with a version number in its filename with a newer version in the filename. For example you can replace PDFCreator-9_4_0_setup.exe with PDFCreator-9_5_0_setup.exe without changing WIHU's install.ini file or renaming the file.
  • Example:

    To execute the file %WIHU%\Installers\PDFCreator\PDFCreator-9_5_0_setup.exe you can use f.e. one of the following file patterns:

    • command.x = %WIHU%\WIHU_Helper.exe "%WIHU%\Installers\PDFCreator\PDFCreator-*_setup.exe" /SILENT /NOCANCEL /NORESTART
    • command.x = %WIHU%\WIHU_Helper.exe "%WIHU%\Installers\PDFCreator\PDFCreator-?????_setup.exe" /SILENT /NOCANCEL /NORESTART
    • command.x = %WIHU%\WIHU_Helper.exe "%WIHU%\Installers\PDFCreator\PDFCreator-?_?_?_setup.exe" /SILENT /NOCANCEL /NORESTART
    • command.x = %WIHU%\WIHU_Helper.exe "%WIHU%\Installers\PDFCreator\P*.exe" /SILENT /NOCANCEL /NORESTART
    • command.x = %WIHU%\WIHU_Helper.exe "%WIHU%\Installers\PDFCreator\*.exe" /SILENT /NOCANCEL /NORESTART
    • command.x = %WIHU%\WIHU_Helper.exe "%WIHU%\Installers\PDFCreator\*.*" /SILENT /NOCANCEL /NORESTART

  • Remarks:

    • Only wildcards in the first parameter's filename are resolved
    • question mark ? = any single letter
      asterisk * = any number of letters (also no letter)
    • If more than one matching file is found, the first match is used.
      Files in an NTFS file system are probably always retrieved in alphabetical order.
      Files in other file systems are retrieved in no particular order.
    • WorkingDir is always set to the folder which is in the first parameter
    • Error messages are closed after 10 seconds to not interrupt the unattended installation
    • Error codes are passed to WIHU

Thank you for this tool.

I think it's really helpfully for me.

I want to try out to give you some feedback.
