WPI v8.6.3 Release Thread!

38 posts in this topic

Current Users!

The 5 "core" WPI files need to be moved to the new dir.

WPI will no longer recognize your files in the wpiscripts dir.

To easily do this just run the cmd file "Upgrade", In your old WPI folder, then copy the created UserFiles folder to the new WPI folder.

Steps to update your WPI folder:

  1. Download and extract the new WPI archive to a different location.
  2. Run the upgrade.cmd file in the old WPI folder.
  3. Copy the newly created UserFiles folder from old to new.
  4. Copy your Audio folder from old to new.
  5. Copy your Install folder from old to new.
  6. Copy Themes folder from old to new.
  7. Copy all of your Logos\Graphics files the new location.
  8. Rename or move your old folder in case something goes wrong.
  9. Move the new WPI folder to where you want it.
  10. Test it!

MAJOR new step!

Update your run WPI methods as WPI\WPI.hta no longer exists! You now need to use WPI\WPI.exe!

Known Bugs\Issues!

  • You cannot minimize the installer window.
  • You cannot click 'n drag to highlight items. Enabling this exposes a bug that causes instabilities.
  • The rewind button DOES NOT work on the media player... (Probably never has)
  • Nero 7 messes with the IE scripting engine and WPI will not work if Nero 7 has been installed or is currently installed. HOWEVER, This link to Nero Clean tool --> HERE has been reported to fix this issue. So if you wish to use WPI and have had Nero7 installed you will want to clean your system first.
  • Midi files should NOT be used if you are copying the audio to harddrive! (use MP3 Files!)

Yes, but let Kels finish and at this time you can use the update button with your previous WPI ! ;)

*Edit: However I can see a strange issue, because on my computer x86, I can update WPI to the new release and download WPI_v8.6.3 but not on my computer x64 !

On my computer x86 wpi.xml shows WPI_v8.6.3 but on my computer x64 wpi.xml shows WPI_v8.6.2

*Edit 2: Now it's fine with my computer x64 (solved)

What is this? Beta? I can only download 8.6.2 on the site...

How do I update from 8.6.2? Just copying over this time?

Also network paths will ever be supported?

It's the link to the new WPI 8.6.3 release!

From your WPI 8.6.2 you can use the update button to download the new release.

Select: About WPI and check for update.

Enjoy!

Few notes on your post:

  • Things go this way now. New releases are ONLY posted here and in the "Update" feature in WPI. After a few days I then updtae the site to reflect this. (Prevents minor release for quick fixes)
  • Network paths are FULLY supported. It all relies on HOW you start WPI. (If by script you MUST use the start /wait wpi.exe format...
  • How do I update? RTM, RTM, RTM....

Yes but I got error when I was try to update. I could not even get update info instead I get an error screen about the script not responding. After a computer restart It was ok that's why I asked. First I think was to check if it really an update or something else because your site was not updated, only this post.

Updating from 8.1.0 failed. At first I run the batch and then tried manually with instructions from the read-me I think. I always got a script not responding error and a blank wpi. I had to enter commands from the beginning to the newer version... I thought that again I'm missing something

I thought also that was the forum for... to ask questions to get straight something... I always get that type of answer from you. We are not in your head because maybe we are not your team. If you don't like to answer there are other member that can answer. I'M NOT DEMANDING anything from you.

Also some people are trying to learn as you did, I suppose, before you built wpi.

For me and for most people is more boring to write than searching or reading. We are not doing anything on purpose. Maybe we entered wrong search criteria...
