Using WPI via network

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Stumbled across this amazing piece of software yesterday and have had varied success getting things to work.

Is it possible to run applications from a network share ?

I have tried but all I get is it cant find the application !

Basicly I want to run WPI and put all my software on a network share boot a cd with WPI on it and install any software I require.

I have done a search but dont seem to be getting any real results

Thanx In advance

I found the prior thread on this as well, but whenever i go to save a new program with \\servername\share\folder\app.exe, it loses a "\" in the UNC definition after you select to install the app(s). i can manually do a find and replace in the config.js file to reflect \\\\\\servername\share\......, but when i save the config.js, relaunch the wpi.cmd, add a new program, and then save, it reverts back to \\\\servername\share\......., and gives me just "\servername\share\....." during the app installation. any ideas on what i may be doing wrong. also, i get the error "Windows cannot find '<Drive Letter>:\Windows'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, yada yada yada". is there a file somewhere i can change or remove this check?? thanks in advance.

what about run a WPI_CD from shared CD_Drive ?

like , i am on a workstation named WKS1 , the server is SVR1

the share name for CDDRIVE on SVR1 is CDSVR1 for example .

if run local on the server all is ok . if i want to run from WKS1

i get error because of path !?

normal path is \\SVR1\CDSVR1\installdir\setup.exe from network

normal local path is \%cdrom%\installdir\setup.exe

can anyone to change wpi.cmd for work well dinamically

as local path and also as network path ?

i cant , i try but unsuccesfully .
