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.

Actually, there are some other things i'd like to be added:
1. a commandline parameter to skip the software install part. That way i could run your program twice. Once through cmdlines.txt to create an admin account and setup the computer settings. The second time after first logon with the new account to just run and install the software part, here it would skip the account screen.
2. an option to rename the default Administrator account instead of creating a new admin
3. a possibility to use the name and password of the newly created account as variables in the install.ini file (e.g. %newuser%, %newpassword%).
This is used in the cmdlines.txt part to run a batch file which injects the autologon parameters into the registry and thus lets you autologon using your newly created account.

You could use wihu /autoinstall 0 /username "New User" /userpassword 1234567890
In this case, settings will not be skiped.
Setting %NewUserPassword% is a security risc, don't know if it is so suitable.
Changing Administrator isn't that easy. What about just disabling it?
Nevertheless I added this feature at this moment. May be there will be a command line switch in future to disable it. %NewUserPassword% and %NewUserName% is now available.

EDIT: just did another test, when I call wihu.exe from the commandline without the switch its also like in the screenshot

I would like to make one more request
Maybe you wanna donate something to him for the time he spends on that project?

And just out of curiousity, where do you call WIHU? (example would be cool )

The first time from cmdlines.txt, here i let the user setup an account and use the parameters %NewUserName% and %NewUserPassword% in the install.ini file to run a batch file which sets up autologon for the newly created account (optional through checkbox, default = enabled).
Through cmdlines.txt i setup a runonceex event for after first logon. After first logon WIHU is run again. This time the account part is skipped (/SkipSettings) and a version with a different install.ini is run. Here the user can select his software and install it (see a few pages back for the install.ini file).
As MacroTips said here is where you want a countdown timer, so that after the selected software is finished installing the program doesn't do an instant reset but waits for a while before resetting the pc.
Temporary option is to run shutdown.exe through the install.ini file, but it would be nicer if this was integrated in WIHU.

Is it possible to output this log to a file (e.g. c:\wihulog.txt) ?
Maybe through a setting in the install.ini file.
