  1. these are hard coded., Sorry. Should have used english there too. WPI has 7 (?) languages right now, and I'm only capable of 2. So if I make an add-on, I could only write the translations for english and german - not the other langs. For a fast release, I hardcoded the options dialog. will be multilanguage in some time.
  2. Isn't there a 'button' that says "Download" ? Do you get an error ?
  3. look at boxes.js, line 85 and 96 if ( (winheight == 600) && ((pi+cats)>=(col*19))) { ... and if ( (winheight >= 768) && ((pi+cats)>=(col*(winheight/30.72)))) { experiment with the hardcoded values.
  4. set var showOptBtn=true; in useroptions.js to activate the options button !
  5. BTW. Read this message. Point Nr. 12 could help you.
  6. All your wishes could be fulfilled by WPI. There's one point to be aware of: If one of your application installs needs a rebbot and does that automatically, ther could be problem with WPI .. but there's a workaround. WPI is a configuration interface to Windows' runonceex-functionality. You sure know the runonxeex dialog. It's only 1 column. So if you install a lot of applications, it could grow too big for you screen resolution. Therefore WPI has a mechanism to install chunks of applications (15 per default). This means, that the runonceex-dialog will show 15 apps, install then, then WPI configures runonceex to process the next 15 apps and so on... WPI (although not visible) runs in background If one of the installed apps reboots the machine, WPI is closed. All applications left in the current chunk would install as usual, but if there'd be another chunk it wouldn't be configured (WPI doesn't run in background after restart). The number of applications per chunk can be configured. So don't forget to do that in the options dialog (up to 60 - reply if you need more, or adjust the value in useroptions.js) to have them all install in one chunk. Have fun.
  7. WPI has a long history. It passed several developers till it came into my hands. There's one 'old' option called discPath for which I don't know if it isn't obsolete by now. Perhaps I should remove it ..
  8. Hello users. In this thread I'd like you to post your 'wishlist' for WPI. If you think something is missing, or have an idea for new functionality, pleas leave a post, describing your idea AND the way you think it should work. I'm subscribed to this thread, and if you're lucky, you'd get your wish fullfilled. Note: any long discussions should be omitted. If someone has a wish, respect it. For a detailed discussion, start a new thread, and refer to it, so that this thread stays clean of something like: A: I wish for this ... B: I don't think that wish is a good one ... A: But ... B: No .... I'll edit the posts with a DONE, comment if a change has been made available to the public. So don't wonder, if your posts don't look the same next day. I'll just add text - I'll not remove a line.
  9. Put WIN51 in your CD's root. That's the best (ond only way till now) I've found. WIN51 won't harm your media. It's a 0kb file.
  10. New update Background pic now defineable in options and stretched !! It's in Version 3.0.3 on the WPI homepage.
  11. Anybody out there, who uses the discPath user setting ?
  12. It's on the options page. First entry. --> written to useroptions.js
  13. somebody any ideas to this ? Where's your WPI run from. Somewhere you call WPI.hta, maybe in a cmd-file where it says start /wait wpi.hta ? put your command/proggie there - WPI doesn't know about it, and it's run after wpi if you put it a line after the start /wait ...
  14. program files is supported by wpi by using %programfiles% but I know - it's not nice to have installation packages in the program files folder. s*** happens. sorry.
  15. For those who mentioned bugs with the install order: Please try Version 3.0.2.
  16. @Dennis Ok. Understood. There was a media called CD some time ago... No, don't be offended. I'm burning DVDs. Plenty of space there ... And yes ... Office's too big. Which shrinker did you use ? One last thing. Wouldn't it be better to not use C: but %systemdrive% instead. It's an environment variable, so you could use it in your unrar-cmd as well. There are situations, where C: is not the systemdrive (e.g. 2 partitions, win2k on first and XP installed to second). Correct me, if I'm wrong.
  17. @buzzman Please understand the following: the number of Apps displayed in one column is computed. for that, i use the sum of category-headlines and previous apps. for each resolution, the calculation changes. each application has its height, and each headline does. if the sum + heoght of the 'current' app won't fit, then there's a 'column break'. If you put <br>'s into your program definitions, the app's height changes, but i still use the same calculation as i'd use for a single-line app. so the column grows too big - and there's your problem. Sure i could recode the rendering. but that's a hard job to do for a 'single user change request'. It'll take some time ... right now I'm working on the 'installation order' bugs, which I can't really recreate on my WPI !?!
  18. Hi Dennis. This can't be done by now. Sorry. It would make more sense, to have each option a seperate prog and just choose one of them for install. BTW - why rar it ? Why not use different names for the transforms-files ? prog[pn]=['Microsoft Office 2003 (Word Excel PowerPoint Outlook)'] cmd1[pn]=['%CDROM%\\Install\\MicrosoftOffice\\setup.exe TRANSFORMS=WEPO.MST /qb-'] pn++ prog[pn]=['Microsoft Office 2003 (Word Excel PowerPoint)'] cmd1[pn]=['%CDROM%\\Install\\MicrosoftOffice\\setup.exe TRANSFORMS=WEP.MST /qb-'] pn++ prog[pn]=['Microsoft Office 2003 (Word Excel)'] cmd1[pn]=['%CDROM%\\Install\\MicrosoftOffice\\setup.exe TRANSFORMS=WE.MST /qb-'] pn++
  19. Can u explain shortly? I want that for each category separate RunOnceEx window created. Is it for that? not really. programs are just grouped by cat[pn], not by ordr[pn] in the install process. installation still happens in chunks of appsPerInstallWindow. categories are sorted alphabetically. so first all apps with cat[pn]='A', then 'B' then .. NO WINDOW PER CATEGORY FUNCTIONALITY. (perhaps in one of the next versions)
  20. whats the value of installByCategory in useroptions.js. If it's true then read back a few posts - that's 'normal' bahaviour. If it's false, zip up you config.js and useroptions.js and attach it to a reply.
  21. nice change request. could be in one of the next releases. any more ideas ?
  22. @BB Snow at christmas. How lucky you are ... here in Austria it's just cold and the forecast says rain for tomorrow and the 24th :-( Feliz navidad. Merry christmas. Fröhliche Weihnachten.
  23. Isn't it, that you customized your WPI.hta ? Perhaps you forgot one script include at the beginning of the document <script language="javascript">position="useroptions.js";</script> <script language="JavaScript1.2" src="./wpiscripts/useroptions.js" type="text/javascript" APPLICATION="yes"> </SCRIPT> and of course you have to delete the values from config.js 'cause it's read AFTER useroptions.js and therefore overwrites its values. config.js should look like this now .. //tooltip style //Style ... Style ... //--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- // Reference ... prog[0] won't be used. It's just an example // look in program.js to see explanation of these properties //--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- pn=0 // start value vor prog numbering prog[pn]=['ProgramName'] ...
  24. Oops. Sorry for that. Happened accidentally. Fixed that. Download 3.0.1 anew. @Astalavista. Would be kind of you to make a new title pic. I haven't had the time for it.
