Hi everyone,

The above works, but for some reason it only worked in my VMware Test. When I tried to run the Installs from My cd on a real system it failed.

Here is what I did to make it work.

WIHUstart.cmd

cmdow @ /HID

@echo off

IF EXIST D:\CD.txt set CDROM=D:

IF EXIST E:\CD.txt set CDROM=E:

IF EXIST F:\CD.txt set CDROM=F:

IF EXIST G:\CD.txt set CDROM=G:

IF EXIST H:\CD.txt set CDROM=H:

IF EXIST I:\CD.txt set CDROM=I:

IF EXIST J:\CD.txt set CDROM=J:

ECHO.

start /wait %CDROM%\WIHU\wihu.exe /skiprestart /skipsettings

ECHO.

EXIT

Then I placed my Software Folders within the WIHU Folder. "WIHU\Software\Productivity\VMwareSilentInstall\VMware.exe" <--Example

The INI commands are then written like this..

;sub command 2

description.2 = VMware WorkStation

command.2 = %WIHU%\Software\Productivity\VMwareSilentInstall\VMware.exe

selected.2 = 0

Works perfectly... Everything installs from the DVD.
