well perhaps you could change the mouse detection with mouse click detection

EDIT: just did a test it works but the user creation dialog is still visible,can't you just disable that dialog with auto install

Ok, I'll modify my tool so that it can be run on Windows 2000 too.

Ok I'll do it, what about key press?

Hmm, ok I'll change it so that wihu /autoinstall 0 will skip the first user creation/settings dialog entirely.

key press could also be implemented, but you'll be clicking with your mouse first so, it wouldn't be necesary I think, only if your mouse doesn't work

Can you perhaps also make sure that your app always starts in the center of the screen and stays on top of every other form or window

Thanks, looking forward to see the updates :)

If the first screen would look kind of like in the picture below , with just the install button if using the /autoinstall switch that would be great, sorry if I'm asking to much, just positive comment

So, everything that was requested here was added.

@MarcoTips: I also added a "Select all" button (tri state) as you wished, and of course screen center positioning :)

It now run on Windows 2000. I added /SkipAutoRestart switch to prevent from automatically booting.

Example commandline could be: wihu /skipautorestart /autoinstall 0

which will automatically install software but don't reboot after programm termination.

I'll do an unattended windows installation test with this tool now.

Software was installed in reverse order as specified in ini file is fixed now. Also a bug in AutoInstall option.

So everyone can make suggestion which feature should be added in future version 1.6.

Is it possible now to skip the user creation completely and select what you wish to install, and if nothing is selected during a specified time it auto installs the standard selected options

Ok MarcoTips, take this one: WIHU 1.6. You have to enable /SkipSettings switch.

@Alanoll: Thank you again for correcting grammatical mistakes in my application.

Very nice, but.... your program seems to have a limit somewhere.

I don't see anything wrong, but for some reason it stops listing programs at "msn messenger". The checkbox parameter is also ignored.

See the attached ini file.

install.ini

You're right syntax_13, it was a very bad mistake of mine. Please use the new one WIHU 1.6.

Btw syntax_13, nice ini file. May I borrow it for my installation system?

For everyone programmer here: Don't use GetPrivateProfileSectionNames with fixed Buffer size :)
