  1. 1. How to make WPI support UAC?

    • Disable UAC before reboot and re-enable it after reboots
      9
    • Maintain UAC always on and remove the incompatible LoadDesktopBeforeInstall option
      3
    • I don't know, but I like turtles!

Naw the Windows 8 code for this section here:

function getOSver()
{
position="wmi.js";
whatfunc="getOSver()";

if (szOSVerCache==NOT_FOUND) // this function is called often - get it once and cache the result
{
var Caption;

try
{
objWMIService=GetObject("winmgmts:\\\\" + "." + "\\root\\CIMV2");
colItems=objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem", "WQL", wbemFlagReturnImmediately | wbemFlagForwardOnly);
enumItems=new Enumerator(colItems);
objItem=enumItems.item();

Caption=objItem.Caption;

if (Caption.indexOf("Windows 7") != -1)
szOSVerCache="Win7";
if (Caption.indexOf("2008") != -1)
szOSVerCache="08";
if (Caption.indexOf("Vista") != -1)
szOSVerCache="Vista";
if (Caption.indexOf("2003") != -1)
szOSVerCache="03";
if (Caption.indexOf("XP") != -1)
szOSVerCache="XP";
if (Caption.indexOf("2000") != -1)
szOSVerCache="2K";
}
catch(ex)
{
try
{
ver=WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\CurrentVersion");
}
catch(ex1)
{
try
{
ver=WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Version");
}
catch(ex2)
{ ; }
}
if (ver=="5.0")
szOSVerCache="2K";
if (ver=="4.0")
szOSVerCache="NT";
if (ver=="Windows 98")
szOSVerCache="98";
if (ver=="Windows Millennium Edition")
szOSVerCache="ME";
if (ver=="Windows 95")
szOSVerCache="95";
}
}

return szOSVerCache;
}

This is the main part I need:

if (Caption.indexOf("Windows 7") != -1)

I have NO clue what MS is calling it internally.

I already have all the code to recognize win8 but it's pretty pointless since like with vista and win7 nothing that requires reboots works.

In wmi.js it's


if (Caption.indexOf("Windows 8") != -1)
szOSVerCache="Win8";

and in wpi.hta and core.js it's


if (getOSver()=="XP" || getOSver()=="Vista" || getOSver()=="Win7" || || getOSver()=="Win8")

instead of


if (getOSver()=="XP" || getOSver()=="Vista" || getOSver()=="Win7")

It's possible to add the WinVer.vbs to WPI, because works fine to give informations ?

It seems some infos are missing inside WPI_Log.txt, like Windows version and Build number:

Result on Oracle VirtualBox

You guys should check out the latest CCleaner, it does something to skip UAC warning using the task scheduler

Good luck

The startup task is actually the 2nd option in the pool.

Thanks Francesco!

However, I see on the registry that the values about Windows are inside:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion]
"CurrentVersion"="6.1"
"CurrentBuild"="7601"
"EditionID"="Ultimate"
"ProductName"="Windows 7 Ultimate"
"CurrentBuildNumber"="7601"
"CSDBuildNumber"="1130"
"CSDVersion"="Service Pack 1"

Regards
