Problems to launch WPI


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!! Nice to meet you.

I`m here because i have a problem doing my unnatended windows CD

I had ended everything even WPI.

But I can`t make it work.

Questions:

- How can I run WPI after windows installation from CD?

I don`t want to copy it to Hard disk.

- Where I should put the WPI folder in the CD?

- How do I call it? In the Winnt.sif file or cmdlines.txt?

Please I need a hand to end my cd.

Just in case I have the WPI version 6.5.1 and the Cd I`m doing is for Windows XP

With Regards.

Hello!

Put the WPI folder inside the location where you have Windows XP (example: C:\CDXP)(at the root of your folder)!

Put RunWPI.exe inside $OEM$.

And write at the end inside "cmdlines.txt": RunWPI.exe

It will be not copied on your harddrive!

As example:

[Commands]

"rundll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection nLite.inf,U"

"hidecon.exe /w SpyMS.cmd"

"hidecon.exe /w COMDTC.cmd"

"hidecon.exe /w IEE1394.cmd"

"hidecon.exe /w SystrayNet.cmd"

"hidecon.exe /w Apps.bat"

"regedit /s ComputerName.reg"

"Windows.exe"

"hidecon.exe /w install.bat"

"regedit /s Office.reg"

"regedit /s c:\hp\bin\CmdCons.reg"

"regedit /s tweaks.reg"

"regedit /s Attributs.reg"

"regedit /s NT.reg"

"regedit /s HPDMI.reg"

"regedit /s HPD.reg"

"regedit /s Theme.reg"

"regedit /s Services.reg"

"hidecon.exe /w PCtype.bat"

"hidecon.exe /w Makedisk.bat"

"hidecon.exe /w i386.bat"

"hidecon.exe /w support.bat"

"hidecon.exe /w valueadd.bat"

"hidecon.exe /w PF.CMD"

"regedit /s c:\hp\bin\pwrmgt.reg"

"regedit /s c:\hp\bin\usbpower.reg"

"regedit /s sroff.reg"

"regedit /s c:\hp\bin\NoStartupSound.reg"

"regedit /s c:\hp\bin\winlogon.reg"

"hidecon.exe /w c:\hp\hpdirfix\FixErr1714.exe"

"regedit /s c:\hp\hpdirfix\HPDir.reg"

"rundll32 c:\hp\bin\hpqca.dll,RDLLCreateUser"

"rundll32 syncui.dll,Briefcase_Create"

"RunWPI.exe"

When you download the folders WPI and $OEM$, all is made and you just have to put the "cmdlines.txt" already write and RunWPI.exe inside $OEM$.

Hi myselfidem. Thanks for your help!

The way you describe I already tried but didn`t work maybe because I added some entries to the file Winnt.sif

I added:

[COMMANDS]

RunWPI.exe

[GuiRunOnce]

%systemdrive%\WPI\WPI.hta

This time I`m going to try it without adding the entries to Winnt.sif

With Regards.

Yes you don't need to add these lines inside "WINNT.SIF".

Hi again!

I think I have a problem with WPI.

I use Virtual PC 2007 to install my unnatended CD.

The Problem is:

Once inside windows and launch WPI the program starts but it doesn`t install anything.. What`s wrong?

I put the program to install predefine programs but suddenly closes without making its work.

What could it be?

Thanks again.

With regards.

Hello myselfidem!! thanks for your support.

Ok, I attach my file of WPI.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks again.

With Regards

Thanks!

1) Don't add spaces inside the name of your folders:"CodecPacks y reproductores"!;"Windows Installer 3.1",etc.

2) Check the order: the order isn't good: missing:2 and 3!

3) You can't install "Office 2003" with "Office 2007". You will get errors!

4) You can rename the files, with short names (example): "Combined-Community-Codec-Pack-2009-09-09.exe" like this:"CCCP.exe"

4) Install "Kaspersky Antivirus" at last

You can see sample config here:

Sample config WPI

I hope that will help you!

Asta la vista :rolleyes:

Hey thanks again my friend.

Ok I`m going to check the configuration on WPI.

1- I didn`t know about spaces.. Sorry!

2- The order isn`t good because I remove some programs when WPI was already finished.

3- I`m going to short up the names of the programs

PROBLEMS:

- I tried runwpi after windows installation... didn`t work again. I don`t know what to do about that

- When i finish the installation and WPI didn`t run, I try to run it from the CD like other folder but didn`t wanted to install. The program ended like I told you before.

- I hide the options inside WPI selecting "HIDE EXTRA BUTTONS and HIDE FROM CD/DVD" now: How can I configure it again? How do I show the buttons again?

By the way thanks for the tip of virtualbox is a lot more faster than virtual PC.

Thanks again myselfidem and sorry if my english isn`t so good I`m from Argentina :)

Thanks!

Hello!

Don't worry nanitoboy about your English, mine isn't so good!

If you need to activate the buttons, you must open the script:"useroptions.js" and write:true

ShowToolTips=true;

ShowExtraButtons=true;

DoNotShowIfCD=true; (maybe for your version the text is different!)

---------------------------------------

You must set your folders like this:

CDXP (example:name of the folder where is located your Windows XP)

inside:

$OEM$

DOCS

SETUP.EXE

I386

SUPPORT

VALUEADD

WPI

SETUP.EXE

BOOTFONT.BIN

cmpnents

AUTORUN.INF

WIN51

WIN51IP

WIN51IP.SP2

WIN51IP.SP3

And inside $OEM$

Set "cmdlines.txt" and "RunWPI.exe"

------------------------------------------

Applications needs .NET Frameworks installed first!

Sometimes .NET Framework 1.1 is also riquiered!

To do an silent install for the .NET Frameworks you can find some help here:

Silent NET Maker

I've tried many time and works fine!

-------------------------------------------

Maybe the problem is you are using WPI 6.5.1 with WPI Scripts for another version!? Check!

The order is important and figure follow, it's better (1,2,3,4,5,6,etc.)!

Maybe you can use the release WPI 8.1.0, but read the description for Windows XP for correct install!

Regards

Hi Myselfidem!

Now I know why the RunWPI.exe official launcher didn`t work for me. I just downloaded the last version of WPI and de executable is WPI.exe

The version I had V 6.5.3 the executable is Wpi.hta

I let you know about my progress..

With regards.

Hello nanitoboy!

No it's correct! The older versions working with WPI.hta inside WPI path; and RunWPI.exe inside the folder $OEM$.

It's now different for the latest version. Read carefully the instructions for the installation with Windows XP!

Hi again Myselfidem!

ok! I those that it has something to do with the executable extension. So the RunWPI.exe official launcher should work even with version with .hta

I had downloaded the latest version of WPI (8.1) and I have troubles to configure the applications. It doesn`t allow me to configure I don`t know why.

With Regards.

OK Couple of things:

#1 RunWPI.exe does NOT work with the hta file anymore. (AS you have found out)

#2 WPI has gone through HUNDREDS of changes since the version you are using.

#3 I would really prefer if you updated and used the newer version.

#4 Please attach your Current config.js file and I will bring it to current standards for you.

#5 If your a seriously wanting to stick with the older version I will give you a run solution.

EDIT = Found your config from an earlier post! I have updated it for your uses..
