Hi Everyone!

I got Xplode to exec correctly during Ua Win Xp Setup but, I still have a small problem. When Xplode starts it tries to load a config automatically as normal. The thing is that nothing in this config is selected as a default and because of that, nothing is installed. My question is: What command do I use in my .xml file to make Xplode select a program as a standard in a config?

Thanks in advance!

I'm guessing you are using the XPlodeSelectInstall.x4d plugin?
you should use the configs tag, for items to show up under a specific config.

enclosed example:
<execute display="Microsoft Office System 2003" desc="Installs Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, Access, Powerpoint)"
   configs="HAILSTORM,AFTERSHOCK,MYSTIQUE,FAILSAFE">
   <program>#XPLODE#\Office2003\pro11.msi</program>
   <arguments>TRANSFORMS=#XPLODE#\Office2003.MST /qb-</arguments>
</execute>

Why geeks like computers: unzip, strip, touch, finger, grep, mount, fsck, more, yes,fsck,fsck,fsck,umount, sleep.

yeah, that's right forgot to mention that, I know that and I'm using it already but still if I choose a config and let the countdown reach zero, Xlode closes and doesn't install a thing.

can you post what's between your <display plugin='#XPLODE#\XPlodeSelectInstall.x4d'> and </display> tags
and one of your items?

And have a look in your log if there are any "out-of-the-ordinary" messages there.

when the selection display comes on screen are there any items selected?

you have config="P430" but should be configs="P430"

oh, sorry I must have confused them. Here it is:

<display plugin="#XPLODE#\XplodeSelectInstall.x4d">
      <window position="4" width="100%" height="100%" border="false" />
      <html>#XPLODE#\selection\select-frameset.html</html>
      <window width="800" height"600" titlebar="0"border="0" position="4" />
      <html>#XPLODE#\selection\select-frameset.html</html>
      <config>#COMPUTERNAME#</config>
      <config>---</config>
      <config>P430</config>
      <config>RENEWED</config>
      <delay>20</delay>
      <autoclose>true</autoclose>
      </display>

heh..... you're quicker than me...
I posted my reply.. and then edited to what it reads now.. :)
I didn't need your display tags afterall :P

read the previous post for the solution.

Also you might want to remove the
<config>#COMPUTERNAME#</config>
<config>---</config>
lines... since you don't use these.
and #COMPUTERNAME# is now your default config.

its a parameter if it's not spelled correctly.. XPlode can't understand it..
just like any other program.

2nd reason why no items are installed:

#COMPUTERNAME# is your top config, so it's the default.
none of your items is linked to that config. so no item is installed

do as suggested in my previous reply (post #8) and remove the two unused config lines.
