Suggested disk folder layout:

With the above folder layout all your config entries should read like:

%wpipath%\Install\Blah.exe

I have seperated the tools out from the main archive. You can download the tools here:

Tools archive.

Contents of the tools archive:

WPI Config Lister

CDSwitch

3 Custom themes for CDSwitch

autorun.inf <-- Updated and fixed

wpi.ico New icon thanks to WolfX2

TaskKillS.exe from sadicq

TaskKillS Instructions

Cleanup.exe (Deletes ALL icons from the desktop)

Reboot.exe (Dialog box that will reboot in 60 sec unless cancel is pressed)

Here is a quick start package that will set your windows disk up to use WPI after the desktop loads.

This is for use with all versions of Windows 2000, XP and 2003!

To make use of this archive all you need to do is unRAR it and place the %oem% folder beside the I386 and WPI folders.

Here is a small tutorial on how to add an app to WPI!

Ok this is a sample (Very simple) configuration for CCleaner (A.K.A Crap Cleaner)

This assumes you have all of the WPI files either in the WPI folder at the root of your Windows cd or all of the WPI folders (Common, Graphics, WPIScripts, Tools, Install and Themes) and the file WPI.hta at the root of your cd.

Remember this is just the most basic and required entries for a program!

#1 Download the app and place it in the WPI\Install Folder. (CCleaner.exe in this example)

#2 Run WPI.hta and click on the "Config" button\Icon area.

#3 Choose the button at the very top above the config section that says "Add"

#4 Enter in the name section "CCleaner" <--No quotes! Then click on any other section of the config area to activate the rest of the wizard.

#5 You will notice the Unique ID section gets automatically configured for you.

#6 All apps are selected to be installed by default right from the start so if you don't want it selected by default you must uncheck this box. Also you can decide if you want this app to be a "Forced Install" or not.

#7 Choose a category for your app to be displayed in. If you want the app to be displayed in a category you don?t see simply chose other and a box will appear that will allow the entry of you choice.

#8 In the Command 1 section click on the little folder icon and browse to the WPI\Install folder and select the CCleaner.exe installer, this will place the full path to the installer in the commandline.

#9 Add the necessary switches for the program to run silently i.e. "%wpipath%\Install\CCleaner.exe" /s (This can be easily done for most standard apps by simply clicking on the USSF button on the far right of the commandline.)

#10 Select the Save and then the Exit buttons and you have now configured your first app!
