  1. ok moved onto wpi forum and linked to this topic.
  2. I have an unattended install of XP on cd with as many applications that will fit on it(683mb). I have extra applications that I need to install, that are on my usb key and/or usb hard drive. My question is is this possible and how to do it. I am using WPI as my installer. Here is a previous post I posted on the application installs forum: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=40477&st=0
  3. I have edited the WPI.cmd to include usb but it doesn't seem to work. Here is the code I have used: @ECHO OFF REM REM WPI startup something. REM REM Example, how to look for CDROM-drive. Must have a file called WIN51 in its root. for %%i in (C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) do if exist %%i:\WIN51 set CDROM=%%i: echo Found CD-Rom as drive %CDROM% REM Example, how to look for USB-drive. Must have a file called usb.txt in its root. for %%h in (C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) do if exist %%h:\usb.txt set USB=%%h: echo Found USB as drive %USB%
  4. In the options in wpi for disc path the description says blank or 'root'- not used, when using %xxx% in path
  5. Here is what I have in my wpi config for one of the apps: %usb%\spybotsd13.exe /verysilent /sp-
  6. Ok we seem to be missing the real question here. My question is: I have an unattended install of XP on cd with as many applications that will fit on it(683mb). I have extra applications that I need to install, that are on my usb key and/or usb hard drive. My original question is is this possible and how to do it. I have tried the following code in runonceex.cmd: @Echo Off SET PP=%SystemDrive%\Install\ IF EXIST D:\usb.txt set usb=D; IF EXIST E:\usb.txt set usb=E; IF EXIST F:\usb.txt set usb=F; IF EXIST G:\usb.txt set usb=G; IF EXIST H:\usb.txt set usb=H; IF EXIST I:\usb.txt set usb=I; IF EXIST J:\usb.txt set usb=J; SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Starting Windows Post Installer" /f REG ADD %KEY%\000 /VE /D "Windows Post installer" /f REG ADD %KEY%\000 /V 1 /D "%SystemDrive%\Installs\wpi\wpi.cmd" /f EXIT This didn't seem to work the usb.txt(which is a blank text file) file is located on my usb device root.
  7. No I'm not looking on how to do a ua from a usb key. My ua is on cd and I want to be able to go to a usb key for the applications to install. My CD with what applications I have on it is already at 690mb and still have more apps to go. I am using wpi to pick what apps to install.
  8. Is there anyway to install applications from a usb drive(hard drive or pen/thumb drive)? I have searched but have not found the answer.
