Looks cool :) ... but, when exactly does it run? ... when windows is first loaded? ... If so, whats the idea then? why not just use "regular" methods?

Well, thinking either at T-13 or on first logon, but it theoretically could be used anywhere...

Was originally making something that would handle just the hotfix installations, so it didn't look like it had hung when grouping them all in a single RunOnceEx entry. Sitting at "Installing Hotfixes" prompted a restart when my mother used an unattended cd of mine, so... :)

During the process, I figured I may as well extend it for installing the whole lot, and well, it's getting there :rolleyes:

Was just thinking I'd make it more a general purpose thing for anyone to use. *shrugs*

Hmmm, it does.

But from what I can see, it doesn't allow different command lines, just hotfixes + switchless installers.

I could be mistaken tho, haven't tested it out...

Looks Awesome, can't wait to give it a try myself. Mostly for the same reason, now all I have to do it make it stop popping up a dialogue window when it applies my user account info.... :)
