OK... now I have added a "Tri-Pack" checkbox.
What this button does is...
After you have selected all of your options to make a full pack, (including Unattended with DriverPacks), you can place a checkmark in the "Tri-Pack" checkbox.
Now when you click on "Pack These Files Into The Destination" you will not only create a pack that is Unattended with driverpacks... but it will automatically create a pack that is Unattended without DriverPacks and a pack that is User Attended Without DriverPacks. So in one sweep you will create a whole set... which I am calling a Tri-Pack.
Another feature I have added is...
Lets say you don't want your pack named "XPPC", you want it named "X234" you can now add a custom name to any pack & it still will make all of the correct changes to every file. (This feature does not work with the Tri-Pack option though.)
Just for a sneak peak at how to use the unattended features that are in the new RC5 release...
To create a "Pack" or "Tri-Pack" unattendedly all you will need to do is call XP Powerpacker from a script file with 2 parameters.
1. The first parameter is the path and file you wish to use as the ini file. (With quotes if your path contains spaces.)
2. The second parameter needs to be "-pack
" (with or without the quotes)
Example: Creating a Pack or Tri-Pack Unattended
PowerPacker_v1.0_RC5.exe "D:\mypath\tomy\inifile\XP_Corp.ini" -pack
Now if you have finished creating packs and are ready to compile the iso... you can use this set of 4 parameters to Unattendedly "Package ISO"...
1. The first parameter should be "-package
" (With or without the quotes)
2. The second parameter is the lable you want on your disk. (With quotes if your name contains spaces.) (Also I think the max abount of characters you can use is 16)
3. The third parameter is the path and file you wish to use as the ini file. (With quotes if your path contains spaces.)
4. The fourth parameter would be the path and filename of the iso you wish to create.
Example: Packaging ISO Unattended
PowerPacker_v1.0_RC5.exe -package "My PowerPack" "D:\mypath\tomy\inifile\XP_Corp.ini" "D:\ISOs\PowerPackDVD\PowerPackDVD_08-17-05.iso"
Another thing you can do is call XPPowerPacker with 1 parameter to open it using a different ini file than the default powpack.ini file. If the ini file you tell it to open with does not exist WinXP PowerPacker will create a brand new ini file with the name and path you specified. This comes in handy when you are getting your batch file ready. Just create a batch file that will open WinXP Powerpacker 1 by one and create all of your ini files that you will use in you "Packing batch file:.
Example: Open Windows XP PowerPacker with a different ini file or create a new ini file.
