Use WPI without CD or DVD

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I would to use WPI right after I restored an XP SP3 image with ghost/acronis/image x, Is that possible ? All I need basicly is WPI process to lauch after the 1st boot. Also I would like all setup files in a network repository so they don't need to be included in the image itself.

Thanks for the wonderful project!

you can use WPI in a network environment.

i use it in a network to.

sometimes it crashes in vista, in xp it doesn't crash often but it can sometimes.

i have installed WPI on a SERVER 2003 standard edition.

i made a shared map put WPI in it , al my setup files en i configured WPI.

best thing you could do is give your server a static IP adress.

then you can search on the user computer after a static ip adress and you find the server easy.

then i made a command script (zsation.cmd) this script must be on your server in the shared map.

NET USE Z: \\192.168.250.250\share

START /WAIT Z:\WPI\WPI.hta

NET USE Z: /DELETE

then you can open WPI from the server.

if you IP adress of the server is 192.168.250.250 then you can do it like this.

first you make de files "zstation.cmd" it makes a drive on your server.

you can open WPI easy on a windows xp or vista

you type :

\\192.168.250.250\share\zstation.cmd

then WPI got opend.

you must make a useraccount on your server.

because you must logon.

i made a local domain : example.local can be a local domain.

and then you don't have to log on every time.

for further questions PM me ;)
