  1. Heck I don't care what you use them for it would be nice to see them on the frontpage.

    I will upload the icon collection.

    5,656 icons :P 135 meg archive will take awhile to upload... (All icons are XP\Vista like and most of them are alpha blended.)

    Edit: I will upload them tommorrow I am to sick and tired today.

  2. Windows Post-Install Wizard (WPI for short) is a hypertext application designed for giving users choice. While Windows XP offers many ways of customizing the setup process out of the box, its major drawback is the lack of being able to select which applications an end user may install. In the past, end users and administrators needed to either download the files manually, or create overly complex scripts that could only be used once. WPI allows you to create one image, which can then be custom configured, and optionally, automated, so that end users can install any applications.

    The main interface which allows for selection of actions and installations to perform.

    The configuration section where you add in all of the programs entries and commands.

    The options screen. (WPI has become very user friendly and has many options now)

    WPI is considered open source and will always remain free and never include any adware or simaliar crap.

  3. Please show only thumbnails, NO full-sized images if you need someplace to host them use www.imagevenue.com. I will upload and host themes as needed just drop me a pm.

    I will redo the themes as I get the chance but I am very sick and in the process of moving.

    Windows Post-Install Wizard (WPI for short) is a hypertext application designed for giving users choice. While Windows XP offers many ways of customizing the setup process out of the box, its major drawback is the lack of being able to select which applications an end user may install. In the past, end users and administrators needed to either download the files manually, or create overly complex scripts that could only be used once. WPI allows you to create one image, which can then be custom configured, and optionally, automated, so that end users can install any applications that have been configured into WPI.

    Here is the 5.3 changelog:



    WPI ChangeLog. Modifications by Mark Ritter (mritter)
    ===============================================================================

    * Sadicq updated the Source Source option to add line numbers and the ability
    to copy/paste the code with a right-click.


    * Built theme 'Glossy_Horiz' to get extra space in Config wizard for 1024x768
    screen resolutions.


    * Added 'Show Extra Buttons' to Options -> Miscellaneous tab to show/hide the
    Options, Config, View Source, and About WPI buttons in one step.


    * Fixed small bug when uncheck category checkbox, it would uncheck all items,
    including forced items.


    * Forced install items are now always checked and disabled so can not be
    unchecked. Selected items are now changed to a different color to stand out
    better. Change color in theme folder's wpi.css under .chktxt.
    Submitted by zorphnoq.


    * Classic and Glossy images updated.


    * Added the sort order value next to the Name of the program in the
    Navigation pane in Config Wizard. And put a little extra space between
    lines for easier reading.


    * Fixed a bug in Config wizard with Navigation pane jumping around in long
    lists.


    * Fixed bug when going from a long config list to a shorter one not clearing
    out the previous one first.


    * Fixed bug when moving from Options or Config to Show Source, Begin Install
    gadget was either hidden or not hidden correctly.


    * The Manual button has been removed. Added About button in it's place.


    * Options wizard now is dynamically tabbed and has gone through a major
    cosmetic update to bring it up to "modern standards".


    * Removed Debug Mode.


    * Increased the size of the wizards for 1024x768 screens.


    * Added theme-based folder gadgets for the file requesters. In the themes
    folders: Folder_Out.jpg, Folder_Over.jpg, Folder_Down.jpg, Folder_Disabled.jpg


    * When add a new category in config wizard it is now added to the drop-down
    list immediately.


    * New option to randomly select a theme.


    * Fixed the language codes to the proper ones. Will affect the loading of
    some languages, but will default to English.


    * WPI will now start with the user's native language, if available, but can
    still be manually switched. (sadiqc)

    Suggested disk folder layout:

    With the above folder layout all your config entries should read like:

    %wpipath%Install\Blah.exe

    I have seperated the tools out from the main archive. You can download the tools here:

    Here is a quick start package that will set your windows disk up to use WPI with runonceex all you need is to place this %oem% folder at the root of your windows disk. You MUST have the line "OemPreinstall=Yes" in your winnt.sif file if you want to have the MCE theme if you dont feel the need the cmdlines.txt will still run WPI for you even without a winnt.sif file.

    %OEM% Folder.

    Contents of the %OEM% archive:

    Media Center Style XP Theme (NO uxtheme.dll hack needed!)

    cmdlines.txt

    regentry to set MCE theme for runonceex window.

    runonceex.cmd

    How to make a winnt.sif file.

    Here is a small tutorial on how to add an app to WPI!

    Ok this is a sample (Very simple) configuration for Windows Defender Beta 2

    This assumes you have all of the WPI files either in the WPI folder at the root of your Windows cd or all of the WPI folders (Common, Graphics, WPIScripts, Tools, Install and Themes) and the file WPI.hta at the root of your cd.

    Remember this is just the most basic and required entries for a program!

    #1 Place the desired app in the install folder. (In this case WindowsDefender.msi)

    #2 Run WPI.hta and choose

  5. Screw Vista we need that **** SP3! Just because they really are behind schedule on Vista is no real reason for ignoring us XP users! Their standards used to be a SP a year and XP has been out for 5 years and we only have SP2. Comeon guys WTF?? Hell even 2003 is getting SP2 now. (Frigggin giant update though, over half the size of the **** os disk size)
