  1. I dont use this company wide. its only for my own personal testing when I use vm's at home. We were able to create system images at work so dont need to use wpi. I am sorry for any confusion mis-information, etc. Is using it to install windows updates against the license?
  2. I will change that to properly support your software. I love your software.
  3. Can you explain how i am using it against its license please?
  4. Thank you for the ideas. I am using windows 7 and sometimes XP, I had trouble slipstreaming the updates so I found you can silent install the updates with wpi. Its been working great. And I fixed my isssue.
  5. I have been using wpi for installing windows updates for a long time and recently as I am updating my list I found it to be faster using only windows not wpiw. Has anyone else noticed that? Does anyone else use wpiw for installing windows updates? Also are there user examples for various uses anywhere? I did a google search and cant find examples. thanks for any input
  6. I dont know if anyone else got this but I just downloaded and copied over my configs and I get the following errors: Line: 26 character: 1 Error: 'bit64' is undefined code: 0 url: file:///C:/WPI_v8.7.2/UserFiles/config.js and Line: 631 character: 7 Error: unable to get property 'toString' of undefinded or null reference code: 0 url: file:///C:/WPI_v8.7.2/WPIScripts/check.js I launch a clean copy and i dont see anything about 64bit processing under options wizard in tools area? I am doing something wrong? Thank you for all the hard work on this app. I just donated also.
  7. I finally found this bug only by trying to use the number order. If you leave it blank then you can manually adjust it using config.js. I have done this for years. I edited the program.js but I must not understand right what I am supposed to take out. { position="program.js"; whatfunc="byOrder()"; var x=a.ordr; var y=b.ordr; return ((x < y) ? -1 : ((x > y) ? 1 : 0));}new look was {return x - y;}
  8. Yea thats what we are doing right now... so it looks like thats the "easiet" Thanks for the input Bill
  9. Thanks for the response. We QC it before but it would be nice to apply the image with imagex and not have to QC it again. I heard it can be done and have seen a couple places do it. I found out that we are missing out by not haveing a piece of software to help with that. (RPK kit) And we do sysprep them so they have to read the elua. From what I can read we can input the keys and activate it for them but with sysprep it forces them to at least read the eula. I am still new at this and continue to do more reseach. We have reviewed the Best Practices and Polices and we are good there. I think my problem lies in I could sysprep the image on the test box and then apply it to the new pc but its how to input the individual keys for them to activate it for them. Trying to make the process easier for the customer. "Right now i built a test pc where i install all the apps, updates, etc. that we want for the setup. I leave it in audit mode. Then i image the pc with imagex Then i apply image with imagex to new pc then we QC the pc inputing coa keys, double checking stuff, etc., takes about an hour depending on updates, etc. then we sysprep pc" Time for more testing and thanks for your input. Bill
  10. HI all, I hope this is the right place, if not please direct me. I volunteer at a non-profit and recently doing windows 7 with the Ms registered refurb program. I was wondering if anyone has ideas on most effiecent steps. Right now i built a test pc where i install all the apps, updates, etc. that we want for the setup. I leave it in audit mode. Then i image the pc with imagex Then i apply image with imagex to new pc then we QC the pc inputing coa keys, double checking stuff, etc., takes about an hour depending on updates, etc. then we sysprep pc then it goes to customer. I am trying to see if there is anyway to speed up the proces... Where we dont have to QC the pc. just find a way to input individual coa keys(if i said that right) Any Ideas any suggestions? THank you Bill
  11. Thanks for the info I will pass it onto by boss... Bill
  12. HI I would first like to say I love your product. I was just wondering if the license has changed? I would like to use this at a non-profit i volunteer at? Please let me know if that is still ok Thanks Bill
  13. I am using windows xp sp3 here is the exact process: load windows right click my computer - manage - device mananger then right click item that needs driver and choose update driver I choose "no not at this time" next "install from list or specific location" next I choose search removable media and "include this location in the search" then browse to my drivers folder on flash drive I don't see any option for selecting sub folders so i assumed it did it automatically but there are times i have to go deeper into other folders not a big deal but it would be nice just to choose the one folder thanks for any help
  14. Hi people I have a question that I cant seem to answer I have done some tests and it seems tho that when u update a driver and choose a sub folder in a custom path that it doesnt find the driver? example when choosing the folder for drivers c:\drivers is there a way for it to look in sub folders example c:\drivers\intel\chipset c:\drivers\nvidia\video c:\drivers\dell\ Any help is appreciated crazydrve
  15. I found a way if anyone else needs it... I add a execute after script of a .reg file with importing this to the registry [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce] "New Value #1"="cmd.exe /c rmdir c:\\wpi /s /q" then set the computer to restart in wpi when finished then after restart folder is gone and clean... bingo...
  16. Thanks, thats what I thought... I work for a non-profit and rebuild many systems and for the longest time we had admin rights to a computer we use but they changed all computers and now we don't have admin rights. cant create share, etc. I was running it from network but now only option is to copy it to the systems, or run from cd but don't want to do that for reason of maybe forgetting cd. Only have one thumb drive and it was way too slow from flash drive. No big deal just trying to make things more efficient. thanks or all your hard work crazydrve
  17. Hi all, I have been trying to figure out how I can set wpi to delete its folder after its done. example. i copy wpi folder to computer start wpi wpi finishes now i would like to add a cmd so it can delete itself after being completed. leaving no files or folders. any ideas? thanks
  18. I know it works manually but when i was adding it on a unattended install the command would only work the way have it currently... If i put it into useraccounts.cmd to have only 1 cmd file, nothing happend, box not checked Bill
  19. thanks guys but got it working.... So now when I do a fresh unattended install, at the end of the install it will add a user, make changes and auto logon that user... I thinks it ugly but it works folder structure: $oem$ ---CMDLINES.TXT ---useraccounts.CMD ---autologon.reg ------\$1 ---------\Install ------------START.CMD cmdlines.txt [COMMANDS] "useraccounts.cmd" useraccounts.CMD net user Admin /add /PASSWORDCHG:YES net localgroup Administrators Admin /add net localgroup Users Admin /delete REGEDIT /S autologon.reg EXIT autologon.reg Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] "DefaultUserName"="Admin" "DefaultPassword"="" "AutoAdminLogon"="1" start.cmd CLS @echo off ECHO. ECHO adding password never expires checkbox WMIC USERACCOUNT WHERE "Name='Admin'" SET PasswordExpires=FALSE ECHO. ECHO Deleting Temp Installation Files... RD /S /Q %systemdrive%\install EXIT
  20. Thanks but it didnt work... I want admin delete to remove him from users group and only be in adminstrators group I am probably doing this the wrong way but i need it to run as part of a unattended install. everything works except the checkbox not being added. thanks for the help Bill
  21. Not sure if this has been asked but it would be nice to be able to minimize wpi to the system tray while its installing the programs. Bill
  22. Hey all, need some help. I am trying to create a user but also have the "password never expires" box checked after a unattended install. It will work if i manually run the cmd file after install with the checkbox but if i run unattended with following setup it doesnt add the checkbox Any ideas would be helpful Also i was sure if to put this in the unattended area but saw password expiration title current folder structure: $OEM$/ files inside = cmdlines.txt and useraccounts.cmd cmdlines.txt: [COMMANDS] "useraccounts.cmd" useraccounts.cmd: net user Admin /add /PASSWORDCHG:YES /expires:never /passwordreq:no net localgroup Administrators Admin /add net localgroup Users Admin /delete WMIC USERACCOUNT WHERE "Name='Admin'" SET PasswordExpires=FALSE EXIT Thanks for any help or ideas Bill
  23. Hi need some help here and the other topics I saw were confusing... I was using wpi just fine but some how something changed when I was adding more things... I thought I had it setup where i could silent install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847) x86 (including - dotnetfx35_x86.exe - ndp20sp2-kb958481-x86.exe - ndp30sp2-kb958483-x86.exe - ndp35sp1-kb958484-x86.exe but for some reason I am getting error on (ndp20sp2-kb958481-x86.exe) Sunday, May 08, 2011 7:12:54 PM - cmd2 *** Fail *** (returned code -2147021886): "C:\WPIW\Install\Windows updates\Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5\ndp20sp2-kb958481-x86.exe" /q /norestart ******************here is the config ********************** prog[pn]=['Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847)']; uid[pn]=['MICROSOFTNETFRAMEWORK35SP']; dflt[pn]=['yes']; forc[pn]=['no']; bit64[pn]=['no']; cat[pn]=['Mar']; rebootcode[pn]=[3010]; repeatcommand[pn]=['no']; cmds[pn]=['"%wpipath%\\Install\\Windows updates\\Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5\\dotnetfx35_x86.exe" /passive /norestart','"%wpipath%\\Install\\Windows updates\\Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5\\ndp20sp2-kb958481-x86.exe" setup /passive /norestart','"%wpipath%\\Install\\Windows updates\\Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5\\ndp30sp2-kb958483-x86.exe" /q /passive','"%wpipath%\\Install\\Windows updates\\Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5\\ndp35sp1-kb958484-x86.exe" /q /passive']; desc[pn]=['Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847)']; pn++; ****************************************************** Any ideas would be helpful... thanks Bill
  24. I was just curious... It just would be nice to hide it so the only way u know its there is by the process in task manager... or system tray. And when your done you still have the log file to see what failed. Obviously while your testing u have it show, Im just talking once you have it perfect then hide it... Thanks Bill
  25. I looked at options and I cant find a way to hide wpi while its running... Does anyone know if there is a way to run wpi but not have it show except in task mananger? thanks for any help...
