  1. Hey Franceso, thanks, will use it I assume that will be part of future wpi versions .... Byebye, Alex
  2. I wanted to do it for some time anyway ... I just donated a bit. Thanks for listening to your users ! Alex
  3. Hi Kel, thanks, I am sure thats a wise decision. PS: I have my server at home so still private use ... but I will donate ! Bye, Alex
  4. Hi kel This is really a major problem. Not only for an unattended installation. Even if i start wpi as an application installer i need to start it with a script so i can first look for network shares and if they exist connect them, then wait for wpi to finish and later disconnect the drives again. Waiting for a program to finish is the basis of any unattended installation process and making this impossible for a program that enables unattended installations is imho really bad. Wpi is much less flexible now, you cannot start it in any kind of script anymore. It doesnt make sense at all, why not
  5. Is your config.js file set inside the new folder: ..\WPI\UserFiles ? Yes, but that doesnt have anything to do with the problem. Wpi starts with the right config but wpi.exe doesnt stay open. Only mshta.exe. Tahts different from earlier versions and doesnt work in my setup.
  6. Hi ! Thanks for the new version .... However I think I have found a problem ... usually if I start wpi.exe in a script like this: start "" /wait "Z:\Setup\WPI\Wpi.exe" the script will wait until wpi.exe is finished and all programs are installed. Not with this new version. WPI is started alright but the script procedes ... which is a real problem because I have a shutdown right after that command so WPI will start and windows then just shuts down ... Any ideas what has changed ? Seems like wpi.exe closes right after the start ... The last version I used before this one was 8.1.0 so I am n
  7. Hey bphlpt ! Of course I can post it, I am posting the whole script now, not only the part which copies the files, but also the parts that creates snapshots in DPM etc. Maybe someone who also uses DPM can make good use of it ! @ECHO OFF cd /D %~dp0 :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: REM Script needs blat downloaded (http://tinyurl.com/2qdxea) and setup to mail to the local server. Put blat.exe into this folder. REM Script needs wget.exe + libeay32.dll +libiconv2.dll +libintl3.dll +libssl32.d
  8. Hi Yzöwl, unfortunately it does not work really. This is the output I get with the new version: ROBOCOPY "C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy\Non VSS Datasource Writer\vol_1c79e280-ba21-484f-8f3d-82 a4f4419872\$RECYCLE.BIN" "G:\DPM" /E /ZB /MIR /XD "System Volume Information" /XF "*.mp*" "*.avi" "*.mkv" "*.wm*" "*.m4* " /LOG+:""G:\copylog.txt"" /TEE /NP ROBOCOPY "C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy\Non VSS Datasource Writer\vol_1c79e280-ba21-484f-8f3d-82 a4f4419872\68be349c-090c-4392-8e80-fdaeb100eddd" "G:\DPM" /E /ZB /MIR /XD "System Volume Information" /
  9. Hi Yzöwl, ok I tried your script without any changes now (except for adding a pause command + changing the branch variable to a subdirectory to limit the output. Here is the script i used: rem @ECHO off SETLOCAL enableextensions disabledelayedexpansion REM Set the two variables below SET "LISTOF=D:\Scripts\USB_Backup\shadowcopieslist.txt" SET "USB=G:" SET "BRANCH=C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy\Non VSS Datasource Writer" (SET RCOPTS=/E /ZB /MIR) (SET RCOPTS=%RCOPTS% /XD "System Volume Information") (SET RCOPTS=%RCOPTS% /XF "*.mp*" "*.avi" "*.mkv" "*.wm*" "*.m4*") (SET
  10. Hi guys ! Yzöwl: Yeah, I got a list with all directory names below C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy. That worked. Is there a simple way to only scan like 5 directories below C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy ? That would probably work and not create a list of thousands of directories Jaclaz: Sorry, I did incorporate your script into my larger script and changed a bit but not much. Must have screwed something up, you are right It works now even with two or more lines in list.txt Sorry for being such a newbie Alex
  11. Hi guys, again, thanks for your help on this. First I tried Yzöwl´s solution. I think it doesnt work because I am looking for names in the listfile that exist somewhere in the path not exactly at the top of the path in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy" When I run that script I get a long running script with thousands of lines of output like this: C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy\Microsoft Hyper-V VSS Writ er>(ECHO=68EFFFA4-BAA3-4533-8627-D01B4A018078 | FINDSTR/ixg:"D:\Scripts\USB_Ba ckup\shadowcopieslist.txt" 1>NUL 2>&1 &&
  12. Hi jaclaz, well my robocopy command would be like this: robocopy "%DPMSource%\vol_9edf29cf-c89a-4fe5-97d6-7c9ce70c13b0" "%USB%\DPM\vol_9edf29cf-c89a-4fe5-97d6-7c9ce70c13b0" %roboparametermirror% Variables being: DPMSource: Path to DPM Shadowcopy Volume USB: Path to USB driveletter robocopyparametermirror: /E /ZB /MIR /XD "System Volume Information" /XF "*.mp*" "*.avi" "*.mkv" "*.wm*" "*.m4*" /LOG+:"%LOG%" /TEE /NP
  13. Hi again, @gunsmokingman: thanks a lot for your vbs script. I would prefer to do it within a batchfile because the process is part of a larger already existing cmd backup script. But if I dont find a good way to do it within a cmd I will come back to your solution ! @Yzöwl: Attached is a screenshot of the directorystructure that I am trying to copy. Those are shadowcopy mountpoints created by DPM (Dataprotectionmanager) so one can copy files from DPM to for instance external Harddrives via non VSS aware scripts or applications. I do not have space on my external HD for all the mountpoints so m
