WPI development is cancelled indefinitely

31 posts in this topic

I give up.

My mobo just smoked and it looks really bad. Memory area is toast.

I hope my harddrive is good and ok.

WPI is officially on hold.

I cannot do this for nearly no support anymore.

Those of you who visit wincert and ryanvm please pass the word.

.... sent from my phone.

First of all, like many others I'm sure, I'm sorry to hear that your PC has given up the ghost - everyone's worst nightmare!

Secondly, the internet sadly does breed a culture of getting something for nothing which if you're dealing with a multi-corporation with an ad based revenue stream is understandable. However, it's not rocket science to realise that there are people out there, genuine coders and app creators like yourself, that are doing it for nothing more than the hope that it will be used and appreciated.

Troy, I think you've probably gone on longer than most would without the support you clearly need at the moment. I had already decided to make a donation before reading your thread simply because I think WPI is such a great tool. After reading the thread it really made me think about the expenses you're incurring that I'm indirectly benefiting from and made me glad that I did donate.

In real world terms those few donations may cover some of your telephone or electricity bills, repair costs or towards replacing new parts. If only we could remember this when using third party software that is being developed by one person sat in his home office working on an ageing PC that is ready to fail at any moment. This is not a sympathy drive people - this is REAL LIFE!

Thanks for the many hours you've put into this project Troy and hope that at the very least you'll be able to answer our WPI queries when we need help.

Regards

James

I've donated a bit of my personal funds in addition to purchasing a business license. I for one would hate to see WPI go by the wayside. It's too handy to NOT have around.

Some time ago I do not get into the forum, I feel you abandon the project... I made a small contribution (within my means), I hope is helpful... Paypal ID: 3UU54660UB249823H

I wish you well...

Regards and thanks by all... ;-)

In spanish:

Hace algún tiempo que no entro en el foro, siento que pares el proyecto... He hecho un pequeño aporte (dentro de mis posibilidades), espero sea de ayuda...

Te deseo lo mejor...

Saludos y gracias por todo... ;-)

After some very deep thought this is the best solution I can come up with:

I haven't stopped development of WPI. Here is the change-log for the next version so far.

v8.6.4 Updates - Released ?????, 2013
====================================================
*** TONS of manual internal fixes and corrections.
*** Minor installer.hta cleanup.
*** SystemEnclosureType fix.
*** Added in wmi detection FirewallProductName, AVProduct.
*** Fixed the extra buttons not showing on USB by default.

This is what I am willing to do for those who have supported WPI:

I will (Upon a request AND agreement that you will not share or distro the supporter releases of WPI publicly) Share the new versions with people who have shown support.

The every couple of versions (Say 4-5 or so) I will release a public version.

Is this agree-able?

Many many thanks Kels for the Welcome! :)

However, I'm not a professional but passionate.

Thank you for keeping your tremendous development program!

Thanks and regards

Thanks so much for thinking about this. I think this is a nice balance. You should definitely highlight (in posts here) the significant updates us supporters are getting to whet the appetite... :)

Woah. Just read this after I donated some bucks yesterday (transaction code 0F8906070W3310213). That's pretty lame that only a few users decide to support this great product. OK, I have to take a good look at myself, because I also use the software for years now and didn't donate yet. But I once created a theme for it (discontinued and lost :-( ) to show my appreciation.

The release policy is OK for me and I think I will donate some more in the near future. Maybe I will "purchase" a commercial license one day.

I'm glad to have you back on board... Somehow.

Regards

Jan

You know I support you in spirit, Kel. I, like you, am also a po-boy, otherwise...

You have several financial supporters so keep on chuggin', my friend.

P.S. And thanks for that "special" WPI for a now-defunct Win98SE project (you know which one "thread deleted").
