Unattended Applications Downloader and Installer

What is TGUP?


The Solution for Windows Silent Software Installation.
The Great Unattended Project - TGUP is an Online Unattended Installer that downloads and installs latest versions of commonly-used freeware silently in sequence and sorts them into the startmenu.


Official Project Site for Download and more info:

http://www.tgup.net

Just run it. And choose whether to Download and Install or create Silent Installers for Offline Installation
TGUP checks if you have the latest versions installed.
Select the Apps you wish from a friendly GUI with App descriptions or preselect the Apps by advanced switches.

I called it The Great Unattended Project. TGUP :)

Okay, before I download something that openly advertises that it'll download and install stuff from the Internet, a little more info would be helpful. The site you point to is just the download location and doesn't provide any information.

What exactly is this going to do? What apps will it download? What is that executable that you're posting? Is it an archive of your files or the downloader/installer itself?

This sounds cool, but before I touch it I need to know what to expect.

Hello again,

Sorry didnt't have time to write a documentation.

so when you run the executable file:

1. it will extract its contens ( which are a batch script, wihu.exe and other usefull batch commands) to the temp directory.
you can extract the contens anywhere with WinRAR or so and see the complete source

2. It will begin downloading all category folders (eg. 0_System, 1_ Graphics,..) found in the "installers" folder on the server and all batch files (with extensions cmd) within these categories.
so it is NOT installing anything yet !!
This is the way how i kept it easy to update, just by uploading the new application batch file for in the right category folder

3. Now the program will begin to check if these programs are installed already on your computer.
for example if "Firefox.cmd" has been downloded, then TGUP checks if "Firefox" is installed on your System.
if it is not installed then it will be set to selected=1 for WIHU.
The "installer.ini" of WIHU is now completely built.

4. Now WIHU starts with an autoinstall counter (30 sec.)
you still have the option to select or deselect manually the applications.
as soon as u interact with changing selections the counter stops.
otherwise it will begin running the applications batches one by one.

5. The Application batches are set to download the program from the server and install it silently to a Submenu named as the category in the startmenu folder.
for example "Firefox" will be found under the Submenu "Internet" in the Startmenu.

PS: CleanUp is not a program, it will just empty yout temp again after the installation is finished.

Of Coure the whole thing works only with Internet Connection.
If no Internet Connection is available. the program exits with no Connection Error.
The advantage of this method, is that you always get the latest versions.

Quick question here,

Is there any way to use your own install sources

Eg. I setup my own Web server on my local network and for the program to download from that server instead.

Extract the tgup.exe installer with an archiving prog. like WinRar.
there you will find a file called "wihu.cmd", where can change the variable %SRVR% with your own by keeping the same folder structure.

Using version 0013, the installation failed at the stage of downloading files. For example, I know that the firefox.cmd starts running since the down/ffox folder is created. But nothing is actually downloaded so that the wihu window shows an error message about firefox not installed. The install.ini file is also created correctly since obviously firefox.cmd command is called by wihu.
However, when manually running firefox.cmd file, the download and installation are able to finish without problem. Any insights about this problem?

the one thing i dont really get is for what do i need a
unattended install with a inet con???
i usually use unattended for installling the OS with all
the progys i need in ONE sweep.
wich would also mean my machine is open to attack!!
and i dont want that!!
would be great if people could get all the needed files for the
progs they want to install unattended so they could create an unattended
install disc wich they can use offline.
but anyhow nice job m8

Hi. I am just a bit concerned because I saw that the tool contains softwares from Sysinternals.

Here is an excerpt from Sysinternals EULA:

A commercial license is required to use the software in any way not covered above, including for example:

* Redistributing the software in any manner, including by computer
media, a file server, an email attachment, etc.
* Embedding the software in or linking it to another program
* Use of the software for technical support on customer computers
