  1. There - that's telling...! I think people assume the everyone else is donating, when we know what's really happening. With that said - as soon as I get some more funds in paypal, I'll send you a little bit (I know I'm a corporate user and all, but I feel for ya).
  2. You should get a guage or something so we can see how close you are to "release mode"
  3. @Jinkazama: you could just donate some money to the cause, that would make the devs a lot more likely to give you assistance with your questions... It doesn't take much - heck, ask for an additional $2 from your friends for the next 10 jobs, and you'd have a good donation going.
  4. I assume this is in the latest supporter release? I had this issue as well, but never really bothered too much with it. So all applications should be numbered?
  5. Ok, I should have another test running soon, I'll let you know - thanks so much for the response!
  6. I did - but I think the latest update overwrote that... I'll double check with another tablet shortly. I have been running these with wired connections and still get the same error, FYI!
  7. Ok - I have FINALLY gotten back to this and have replicated the error. Clicking 'yes' to the installer.hta "invalid character" error brings up the next one: "'programs[...].cat' is null or not an object"...I think clicking 'no' does the same thing. It seems like the wpi_log during the error and after the reboot didn't change. See attached zip file (I've sterilized the logfiles so our server names have changed)... ---couldn't really get a proper screenshot since I wasn't at the desktop yet, so...--- wpi-files.zip
  8. I'll try and get this to you today or tomorrow - gotta rebuild the laptop again (bad encryption software install)...
  9. Thanks so much for thinking about this. I think this is a nice balance. You should definitely highlight (in posts here) the significant updates us supporters are getting to whet the appetite...
  10. Hmm...OK, so I tried a laptop using a wired connection. Got the same error after reboot. I killed mshta.exe then re-ran WPI, and continued the prior installation routine. Got the same error again. What do I need to share with you here to troubleshoot this? Thanks!
  11. Ok, I'll try and do this with a wired laptop next and will report back my results! Thank you!
  12. That would be cool to use a resultant variable from the built-in functions to call in another command. Is this possible?
  13. Yes - this would be a wireless laptop primarily (although I'll test it with a wired connection). Does WPI processing occur before Wireless Zero Configuration takes over? I'm mainly pulling most of my installations via remote server shares - would this be a problem, or should I focus on making all my resources available in the WPI folder, and maybe have them on a removable hard disk? I'm just trying to keep all the installation source folders pointing to our network just in case the MSI's need to repair themselves. Thanks!
  14. Ah, well, then that might be difficult, that is, if you want to automate it completely. However, if you were looking to just initiate the uninstall process and you can step through the rest of the way manually, you might be able to write a script that would iterate through the uninstall keys in the registry, when it found one that had 'Antivirus' or whatever in it, execute the uninstallation string (which is typically found in the registry as well). I would look for something VBScript-based, since you might not be always working with something that has the current iteration of PowerShell installed. Some psuedocode: Iterate through all subkeys of HKLM\software\wow6432node\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\ (and the 32-bit equivalent) For each key, look for AV text string in the Displayname value. If string matches criteria, then execute what's contained in the 'UninstallString' value. Examples: HKLM\software\wow6432node\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\blah (64-bit Windows) or HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\blah (32-bit Windows) Then, in WPI, you would simply call the script as part of your task steps. The only other thing I could recommend is maybe looking at a utility that will remove these apps for you (assisted, or no): http://www.ghacks.net/2009/04/29/antivirus-software-uninstaller-appremover/
  15. You should be able to put the complete silent uninstall switch for your AV as an executable to run for your uninstall task. What AV is it?
