v8.2.1 Updates - Released June 5th, 2011

*** Fixed some bugs in the layout engine, installer window size, Network
Wizard password handler, etc.
*** Wrote a simple disc changer. Put this on your Windows' DVD. Run it
like you ran WPI before WPI.exe came along. Put your actual WPI folder
on the second DVD and run WPI like normal.

v8.2.0 Updates - Released May 15th, 2011: Dedicated to Kimbra

*** If WPI is started from a network share (\\share\folder) it will look
for the mapped drive letter (if has one) and use it.

*** Added DOS function {START} because it seems some people have a problem
calling it directly.
USAGE: {START} start "opera" /MIN "%wpipath%\Install\opera.exe" /install

*** To give better and more accurate error reporting, if an item returns
a code other than 0 or 1, it will show up as Warning in yellow. This
does not count as failed. It usually just means a reboot is required
to finish the installation. It's just a visual for you.
*** Fixed a bug in the Configurations selector. Wasn't being critical
*** Fixed a bug in the new Pause script.
*** The installer window now opens to the correct inner size no matter
what window border size.
*** Added to Config Wizard -> Details -> "Check for reboot".
This will monitor a registry key to see if a reboot is required before
installing this item.
*** Added to Options Wizard -> Features -> "Maintain auto logon count".
This will maintain the auto logon count when a reboot is required.
*** Fixed small bug dealing with conditions.
*** Added to Options Wizard -> Features tab -> "Disable combo box in
installer window". This disables the combo box that changes the
reboot/shutdown state.
*** Fixed bug in "Eject CD When Done". Works for some people, but not
others. Stumped on it still.
*** Fixed a small bug in determining paths for network shares.
*** The navigation grid in the Config Wizard now remembers what column and
direction to sort by.

People still have a mix of x86 and x64 software and are running into
issues with installing the proper architecture version. Now in Config
Wizard -> menu -> Other there is a new Architecture item.

Instead of creating two entries for each program with conditions to hide
it depending on x86 or x64, do it this way as a shortcut:

When adding items in the Config Wizard, if needed, double the entries
for the install program:

{x86} D:\MyProgram_x86.exe /s
{x64} D:\MyProgram_x64.exe /s

When start the installer and it comes to these entries, WPI will check
the architecture bits (32 or 64) and either skip the entry or install
it like normal.

It will say Skipped when not on the right architecture.

This is only needed if the install package doesn't have both versions in
it and checks itself for which to use.

This method will reduce the number of entries and not require any
condition statements.

*** icnocop and I worked out a better Pause solution for reboots so WPI
would not continue with the next item before it should.
*** New Vista_Ultimate2 theme.
*** Fixed bug in log file time stamp.
*** Updated the internet connection test.
*** The flickering problem has been resolved in Windows based themes.
Still not resolved for Windows Framed themes.
*** New Croatian (Hrvatski) courtesy of Robert F. Merlin alias �vedo.
*** The installed now recognizes return code 259 "STILL_ACTIVE" and
reports it as a warning.

In the Themes Wizard -> Style tab, there are now 4 layout styles:

1) Vertical columns; checkboxes

2) Vertical columns; checkboxes; logos
3) Horizontal rows; checkboxes
4) Horizontal rows; boxes; logos

One and two are the same as previous versions. Three and four have the
items laid out horizontally instead of vertically. Each category is
the full width of the window with the items spaced evenly below it.
When testing each style, remember, until you pick a style and stick with
it the colors carry over from each layout style. Once you find one you
like, and then edit the colors and font sizes.

Layout 4 is much more modern and easier to read. See theme

Windows Framed for an example of how to color items. Black text for all
class�s works best.

There are now separate: categoryBg and category,

categoryBg_logo and category_logo
in the wpi.css style sheet.

*** Log file shows the "Execute Command If Failure" command line and
*** Updated dhtmlx to v2.6.

New addition to Config Wizard -> Commands tab -> menu bar -> Internet.

*** Open a web site: This will open Internet Explorer to the site
specified. Handy for showing company's web site, program's web site
manual page, etc.
Usage: {WEB} http://www.wpiw.net/The_Dark_Side/doc.html

*** Download a file: This has been asked for many times in the past. It's
main purpose is to download the latest archive of your program(s) so you
don't have to manually download them and burn them to a DVD.

WPI will download the file, save it to %TEMP% folder, and then execute it
as if it was on a DVD.

Usage: {DOWNLOAD} http://www.filehippo.com/CCleaner.exe /s

Still include all the switches like normal. USSF will not work with
this feature since the archive is not actually on your hard drive.

Obviously your NIC driver must be installed before WPI is launched.

The only drawback to this is that the path and filename can never change
with each new version. Else you will have to modify each filename.

To specify a user name and password (I have not tested this):

Usage: {DOWNLOAD} http://user:password@www.filehippo.com/CCleaner.exe /s

In Options Wizard -> Features tab -> Show download output window
checkbox to show progress of download.

v8.1.0 Updates - Released August 19th, 2010


*** New to the wpi_theme.js in each theme folder is

Installer_BackgroundRepeat to specify either a big background image or a
small pattern.
Note: In the theme folder in installer.css under .Background, you must
set the actual repeat style.
Options: repeat, stretch
Usage: Installer_BackgroundRepeat="stretch";
*** Also new is Theme_BackgroundPosition is set the background image
position if using an image that is smaller than the screen and not using
stretch option.
Note: Must also set: Theme_BackgroundRepeat="no-repeat";
Options: top, left, center, right, bottom. and any combination
Usage: Theme_BackgroundPosition="top right";

*** In installer.css in each theme is a new entry: .WPI_Text.

This sets the text color for the title text in the installer window
near the bottom.

There is a new theme type: Windows Framed. The first theme to use it is
WindowsFramed. Simply put, there is a frame around the main body, 7
pixels wide, 20 pixels in from the edge.

In the theme's folder in wpi_theme.js

sets the frame color. If Frame.png exists, that image will be used.

There are no SmallBarT.png and SmallBarB.png images in this theme type.

All of the new features below are also in this new type.

There are two new options in each theme folder in wpi_theme.js,

Theme_MainPanelBGColor="" and Theme_MainPanelBGImageRepeat="".
These set the main checkbox panel's background color or image. If
MainPanel.png exists, that image will be used.

You now have three independent background images:

Wallpaper.png (.jpg) as the main background.

You now have three independent background colors:


Note: Only applies to Windows and WindowsFramed based themes.


*** If the three .png images for the main control links (Install.png,
InstallDown.png, InstallOver.png) do not exist, then just the text will
be displayed with no error image. Useful if tight on space or just
don't want any images.
Note: Only applies to Windows based themes.

*** There is a new option in each theme folder in wpi_theme.js,

Theme_ShowButtonText, to show or not show the text for the control
links (Begin Install, Options, About WPI, etc). Setting this option to
false allows you to make full image text buttons. The drawback of this
is you lost locale support since images can't be translated. So use
this only if you don't need multi-language support.
Usage: Theme_ShowButtonText=false;
Note: Only applies to Windows based themes.
Note: Theme_ShowExitButtonText is still independent of this option.
*** With the addition of the above feature, there are now separate images
for Defaults, All, and None in all Windows and Accordion based themes.
*** The large combobox on Options Wizard -> General tab has been removed
since many people seemed to not see it. It has been replaced by a new
Features tab with all the check boxes laid out in two columns.
*** An oversight in the wpi_theme.js file has been remedied:
It was fine for large background images, but not small patterns that
needed to be repeated.
Options: repeat, no-repeat, repeat-x, repeat-y

New to the Config Wizard -> Details tab -> Return code requires reboot.

This function allows for a script, or program, to be run multiple times

with reboots in between. For example, you could have a script that
creates a new user, exit code for reboot, set user's network settings,
exit code for reboot, do some more stuff, exit code 0 for done.

If you have the "Repeat command until other code is returned" WPI will
restart at the same command. Else it will continue on to the next item.

The reboot code cannot be 0 or 1.

There are now new warning image and sound files, and a .css entry for it
with yellow text. The default ones have been copied to all themes.

*** Added three new options in Options Wizard -> General tab:
- Abort installation process if failure occurs
- Script or program to execute if failure
- Continue next installation where failed
Very handy for testing a program or script.

*** Fixed a bug dealing with stdout redirection and quotes in the path.
"d:\program.exe" "param1" >c:\app.txt
would fail, but with no quotes it always worked. Works all the time

*** WPI now reports success/fail properly in the installer. The return
code was not being processed properly. 999 is the "default" fail code,
which usually means the file does not exist. 0 is success. 1 usually
means a file doesn't exist in a CMD /C or cmd.exe call.
ex: cmd /c copy a b Return code 1

*** Added function {JSCRIPT}=CreateRegKey().

Sometimes a key needs to be created first, then its value set. If
{JSCRIPT}=WriteRegKey() fails to make and set the key, use this
function first, then write the value.

*** Small update to tips.js which should make the tooltips display a
little faster and smoother.

There is a new Theme Wizard to edit themes and a full GUI to edit the
tooltips. This interface has been much needed since none of the options
have been properly documented. Most of the options are self-
explanatory, so here are the obscure details:

*** Appearance behavior: Controls how the tip message is displayed. Some
will stay open when mouse is moved. This allows for internet links to
be used in the message (i.e., program's home page).
- Visible: Same as Sticky below but no X close button.

- Sticky: The tip message will not hide after your mouse goes off the
link and it will only be positioned once. A close link is automatically
generated and inserted at the top right of the tip message so if you
would like to hide the tip message just click it. The properties
(color, bgcolor, etc) of the close link are set from the title's
properties so the close link and title will have exactly the same style
and look as the title. This is designed especially for the need of
inserting links in the tip message or anything that involves using the
mouse in tip message's content.

- Keep: The tip message will not hide after your mouse goes of the link
rather the tip message will move with your mouse around the page. This
will produce the same effect as if you didn't specify the mouse out
function in the link.

*** Tip position type: Open the tip relative to the mouse pointer.

- Float: The tip message will not move with the mouse rather it will
popup at the coordinates of the X Pos and Y Pos entries. And if you
scroll down or left the scroll values are added to the X Pos and Y Pos
values so the tip message will always float in the same place no matter
how much you scroll left or right, in simple words "Static position".

- Fixed: The tip message will not move with the mouse rather it will
popup at the coordinates of the X Pos and Y Pos entries. And it will
not float with the scrollbars.

*** Background image: Uses Graphics\ToolTipsBgs\ as base folder. Put all

your images in there. The image overrides the background color.
-OR- place ToolTipsTitleBg.png and/or ToolTipsBodyBg.png in the theme
folder to use that image to override the user specified one.

*** X pos / Y pos:

- If the tip message's position is set as left or right it sets the
coordinate of the tip message relative to the position of the mouse.

- If the tip message's position is set as float or fixed it sets the

coordinate of the tip message relative to the window. You may set
positive or negative numbers.

*** Shadow type: You may apply one of two shadow styles: simple or
complex, or none. You must also add a shadow color to enable it.

The ColorPicker does not like words for colors (white, red, etc) so use
the hex value whenever possible.

Keyboard shortcuts are either F6 or Alt+H.


*** Updated WriteRegKey() to use the WMI version instead of the DOS-based
Reg. This speeds up the startup process by several seconds.
*** Added to Options Wizard -> General -> combobox -> Disable hot keys.
Use this in conjunction with "Show extra buttons" and "Do not show if
started from CD" and/or "Do not show if started from USB". This will
block all access to Wizards. Enable when you make your final DVD.
Use with care.

Updated WPI and the Installer to handle custom audio files.

You can now place custom audio files in your theme's folder to override
the one's specified in Options Wizard -> Audio tab. WPI will check if
the files exist in the Theme folder and use those in place of the
specified ones.

The checkboxes in the Audio tab still must be checked for the audio to

The audio files must be named:


The audio files can either be wave (.wav) or midi (.mid) files.

Keep them as short as possible. The installer will not wait for the
sample to finish playing before moving on to the next item.

*** Fixed a small issue with the audio player. If no files are specified
the Install.m3u file was not cleared.
*** Alper Catak (ZEUS__) created some new themes: 7Fresh, 7Matrix, 7Pure,
7StarWars, and 7Transformers. He also created 7Matrix, Black, Pure,
LightGray, and CobaltSteel skin styles.
*** Black_Kel skin style is gone. Use new Black style.

It has come to my attention that it is difficult for people to specify
certain operations, like file copy, when building one config for both
32 and 64 bit systems. Here is a simple example on how to copy a file
based on your cpu bits and cpu type:

{JSCRIPT}=if (getBits()==32) RunCmd('%wpipath%\Install\CCleaner.exe /s',false,true)

{JSCRIPT}=if (getBits()==32) RunCmd('cmd /c copy /y "C:\WPI\ChangeLog.txt"


{JSCRIPT}=if (getBits()==64) RunCmd('cmd /c copy /y "%wpipath%\Install\MyFile.txt"


{JSCRIPT}=if (getArch()=="AMD64") RunCmd('cmd /c copy /y "%wpipath

%\Install\CCleaner\Password.ini" "%ProgramFiles%\CCleaner\"',false,true)

Using RunCmd() is the key. There are 2 possible options:

RunCmd('your command',OutputWindow,Wait)

Use single quotes around your command so don't interfere with double
quotes in your paths.
OutputWindow: true or false. Show the cmd output window or not.
Wait: true or false. Wait until the command is finished or not.

All of the functions in the Dependencies can be used with {JSCRIPT}.


*** Updated version extraction method.

New to the Installer window is a combobox under the Pause/Abort buttons
to specify what to do when WPI is finished installing your programs.

There are 3 options: "none", Restart, and Shut Down.

If you have "Restart Computer" specified in Options Wizard -> Tools tab,
then that option will be reflected here. If you don't, then "none" is
selected. (no restart or shutdown)

With this combobox you can specify, or change, what to do on the fly.
Selecting "none" will cancel the restart or shut down.

The time delay and "Do not load desktop" options are still used.

*** When hit Abort in the Installer window, any restart or shut down is
*** Added new option to Options Wizard -> General tab -> Options combobox:
"Do not show extra buttons if started from USB drive". This has same
functionality as the original "...if started from CD Drive.". This is
needed because it is possible to still allow writing to a USB drive.
*** Updated how drives are checked for how WPI was started.

v8.0.3 Updates - Released May 30th, 2010

*** Fixed a path bug in the installer.

v8.0.2 Updates - Released May 27th, 2010

*** Changed language file codes: dk-> da, and se -> sv.
*** Fixed bug in USSF dealing with .msi archives.
*** Updated the media player code for the installer.
*** Updated new file error handling code some more.

Updated the Installer to handle custom images and backgrounds.

Added a "None" option to the combobox for installer background image.

This will make the top titlebar transparent in case you want to use a
full size background image.

You can now put custom images and backgrounds in your theme folder to
override the selected ones in Options->Style tab:
*** If Wallpaper_Installer.jpg or Wallpaper_Installer.png exists, it will be
used as the window background image.
Window size is 430x460 pixels.
*** If InstallBg.png exists, this will be used as the title bar background
image. Use in conjunction with "None" in the combobox.
No more than 428x60 pixels.
*** If InstallLogo.png exists, it will be used as the title image.
No more than 430x60 pixels.
*** If ProgressBar.png exists, it will be used for the progress bar image.
This will also be used in the main window for the countdown timer.
Must be 400x20 pixels.
*** If Wallpaper_InstallItems.jpg or Wallpaper_InstallItems.png exists,
it will be used for the background image for the install items textbox.
Box size is 400x256 pixels.

7Fresh theme uses most of the above options.


*** Fixed bug with install order value not being placed in the grid when

v8.0.1 Updates - Released May 16th, 2010

*** Added 120Hz and 240Hz monitor refresh rates.
*** Locked the size of the Installer window.

path every time.

*** Fixed bug in Options wizard that would still change the theme colors
if hit Exit instead of Save.
*** Fixed a bug in the tooltips dealing with carriage returns.
Note: For a new line press Shift+Enter. For a new paragraph, just hit

v8.0.0 Updates - Released May 10th, 2010

*** UTF-16 is now supported for foreign language custom characters. To
update your config.js file, load it in a text editor, like Notepad++,
and save it in UCS-2 Little Endian format. It will then be editable
within WPI.
*** Added command line argument "continue" to automatically continue an
aborted installation. You will not be presented with the alert to
continue or cancel.
WPI.exe continue=true
*** Added command line argument "language" to switch saved language. Use
two letter language code.
WPI.exe language=de
*** The tool tips text location for Left and Right were reversed.

Added a new layout design that shows the program's logo (.png image) and
a short description under the main text. The main use of the second
line would be for version, system requirements, exclusions, etc. It
does use much more real estate, but looks much nicer than the old boring
To toggle the traditional list style and the new layout, go to Options
Wizard -> Style tab -> Use alternate layout with program's logos.

Be sure to adjust the style sheet: .txt_logo, .shortDescTxt_logo,

.grayTxt_logo, .forceTxt_logo, and .checkedTxt_logo.

*** Updated the tool tips to not show "undefined" when nothing is
specified in the Description field.

will be created now.

Added {JSCRIPT}=TimedWaitForProgram(ImageName,Minutes) to monitor
installers, or any program, to close before moving on to next install
item. This was requested for installers or scripts that do not wait
properly when they launch installers from inside themselves.

Usage: {JSCRIPT}=TimedWaitForProgram("Setup.exe",10)

The image name is case sensitive. Minutes is the amount of time WPI
will wait before moving on in case the program hangs/crashes.

WPI will check every 3 seconds or until the specified minutes is


To see the actual image name, open a command prompt window, start the
program/installer, at the command prompt type "tasklist". This will
give a list of all the running programs.

*** Updated the progress bar in the installer to finally keep the value
centered all the time.
*** The euDock theme is now localized. No more making custom images for
each language.

The Options -> Style tab has been reduced to remove a lot of theme
bloat. You can no longer change the skin of individual gadgets. You
can still change the installer background image and the progress bar

There is now a new "Selected skin" drop-down box that has 8 skins to
keep all the gadgets the same colors. Much better consistency. More
skins will be added later.

This reduced the archive size and number of files down significantly.

If you want to make your own skin, use the Skin Builder here:

Please upload it to the forum to share with others and maybe have it
included with future WPI releases.

information about the install package. Like, certain items require user
input (not totally silent), drivers need to reboot, etc.
*** Francesco ported USSF from Auto IT to JavaScript; I finished it up. No
more false positives from virus scanners thinking USSF is a virus. And
I have full control of it now.

right after.
*** The sub windows will now resize automatically to match different font
*** Broke down the Conditions and Grayed Conditions menus in Config
Wizard for easier navigation.

Updated all of the themes to a new rendering engine. The html code is
no longer in the theme folder. This way all the themes will match and
function properly. All images may be replaced or removed. Many items
in the theme are still customizable. This is done via the new
wpi_theme.js in each theme folder. The type of theme is defined in the
wpi.inf file: Windows, euDock, CorporateIT, or Accordion.

The names of the images are hard coded in and cannot be changed and
they must be PNG images.

The background image can either be called Wallpaper.jpg or

Wallpaper.png. Or no image and set a background color.

If Title.png exists it will be used. If does not exist, text will be

used. To have no image and no text, copy in Title.png from

If TitleBG.png exists, it will be used as the background pattern. Or

set a color in wpi_theme.js.

SmallBarT.png a SmallBarB.png, if exist will be used. Erase them to not

use them. The heights can be specified in some themes.

If SidePanel.png exists, it will be used as the background for the side

panel (Begin Install, Select All, Select None, etc.). And/or a color
can be specified. The width of the side panel is also customizable.

If Logo.png exists, it will be used as a second image. It is mainly

meant for a company logo/watermark when don't want a big background.
Usually would be light colored, almost transparent. Set its right
edge and bottom edge location.
PinkRibbon and Woody themes are examples.

If Bottom.png exists, it will be placed in the bottom bar at center.

If BottomBG.png exists, it will be used as the background pattern. Or

set a color in wpi_theme.js.

You can specify and customize text to be placed in the bottom bar in
wpi_theme.js. Cannot have both image and text.

The exit button can be on left or right side, and show or not show the

Not all theme types have all the customizable features. If it's not in
wpi_theme.js then it can't be modified so don't try to add anything from
other types.

Went through every .css file and removed several old items that are no
longer used, and changed the names of several items.

Added Network Wizard to facilitate entry of user IP information,
create Windows' users, etc.

This wizard is meant to be set up ahead of time. If you have a business

with 25 users/computers, you would make an entry for each user/computer
with their specific information: IP address, computer name, Workgroup,
etc. If you also use a winnt.sif or XML file, you do not need to enter
Any user specific data, so you only need one "universal" file with global
settings (i.e., Display, Unattended, Windows key, etc).

Once the install process is started, a window will open and you pick
which user/computer you are installing for. Or hit Cancel and nothing
will be changed. The user may also be specified from a command line
argument: user="Ritter, Mark". To specify a different network settings
file: network=iowa_office_networkoptions.js.
In the grid you will see an entry ".default". This entry cannot be
deleted. You can use it for Administrator account, or other non-specific

User information:
Friendly name: Ritter, Mark or Mark Ritter. This is the name you specify
in command line args.

Computer name: Enter the name for user's computer. If left blank no
change will be made.

Windows user account information:

User name: Mark. This will create a new user account in Windows.

User password: Leave blank if don't want one.

Administrator: Check to give this user Administrator rights, else will

be a limited user.

Join workgroup:
Workgroup: Name of your Workgroup.

Reboot after settings are applied: Checking this will reboot the
computer so the newly created user account can be logged on to for user
specific settings/programs.

Auto logon user: Automatically log on to this newly created user.

Clear auto logon user when WPI is finished: This is recommended so any
user password is cleared from registry, and if multiple accounts exist,
allows selection of desired one again.

The rest of the settings are the usual network adapter settings for IP
address, DNS servers, etc.

No support for domains is included. That needs to be done on the

Active Directory server.

Alt+K shortcut key.

Unknown, X86-Nec98 PC
NOTE: The 'x' is not always lower-case.

*** {EXTRACT} is now handled internally for more control.
*** Updated Options -> Audio Player to use grid.
*** When select a DOS command in the command drop-down box it will replace
the current command. There can only be one DOS call per line, so it
assumes you want to change it.
*** Updated the command string gadget to handle input better and reflect
it in the grid.
*** Got the buttons to disable properly and not shrink/grow.
*** Added TerminateProcess() to internally kill a process so no longer
need to rely on tskill or taskkill. This is done in Config wizard.
Usage: {TASKKILL} notepad.exe
*** Extensively updated the Config Wizard:
*** Your config file will be updated automatically at first run.
*** Added a grid for navigation. It is sort able and uses keyboard
*** Tabbed the wizard to save vertical space.
*** Now has unlimited commands per entry.
*** Registry Before/After is now eliminated. They are now placed as
first and last commands.
*** To do any other reg edits, pick RegEdit from combo box.
*** Updated the built-in commands to be encased in { }
This will allow for easier expansion in the future.
*** More error checking capable in installer.
*** {TASKKILL} now handles Vista and XP/2000 family properly.
*** USSF updated to handle only 1 command line.
*** Quotes will be added when possible when updating.
*** Main command string gadget updated immensely.
*** Updated all the possible alert() call with my new Alert() that uses
the built-in windows for a better look and customization, more buttons
possible, self-closing after a set time, etc.
*** Your chosen options and config files are now remembered and loaded the
next time WPI is started. Since it is saved in a reg key, this only
works from the desktop. Otherwise you still have to use command line
args to specify other files.
*** Fixed a bug with "Default install path" not being honored.
*** Fixed some tiny bugs in Options Wizard.
*** Occasionally USSF would erase the command line. It seems to always be
at the first run. Now WPI runs it when first open Config Wizard to get

system. Not usable on 800x600 resolution.

from harddrive. If checked, will verify that you really want to do an
install process if started from harddrive. Will not ask, even if
checked, if started from CD/DVD. Prevent accidental installs when
editing config.
*** When hit Abort in the installer, there is now an option, Open WPI,
that will abort the installer and re-open WPI.
*** Improved the way the installer aborts when user halts the install
process. It used to finish all the commands in the current item. Now
it stops immediately.
*** Some virus scanners were complaining that USSF is a virus. It is not.
It has been recompiled without UPX compression and can be decompiled for
*** Added a check so can't switch to/from Options/Config editors directly
without closing the editor first.
*** Changed the way path variables are handled a little. %root% or
%root%\ and %cdrom% or %cdrom%\ are acceptable now.
*** Fixed Execute Before/After to properly set paths (%wpipath%, %root%)
and quotes.
*** The shell window is now not shown (flashed) for DOS commands and
RegEdit entries.
*** Took out XML error message when doing Internet check at startup.
*** Updated code for all possible resolutions for ResChange.
*** By pure chance, midiboy needed to turn on script debugging in IE to
send me a bug report. By doing this, it cured the problem of Office
causing WPI to do an internal restart. Now WPI checks 2 reg keys and
turns debugging on when started, closes itself, re-launches itself to
let reg keys take effect, and back off if that was the original state
when exits. This may also cure other mysterious anomalies people have

NOTE: The above only works on the desktop. When starting at RunOnceEx
you must change the reg keys before WPI is started. The scripts and
launchers are provided on the forum.
*** Custom fonts placed in the theme folder will now be installed
automatically. Any number of fonts may be added, but they must occur
between the theme version line and <title> line:

<meta font="myfontname.ttf">
<title>Windows Post-Install Wizard</title>

now be deleted.
*** Added Shuffle to audio player.
*** Added to installer window: Count up timer; current item number of
total number of items (5/25); computer name and user name.
*** Cleaned up the reboot code that had some code that was no longer
needed, changed the way the log file was written, and several other
small updates. This should prevent the installer from hanging on the
"Could not open rb_config.js" error message.
*** Fixed a bug in the installer that would show the category line again
after a reboot.
*** Now using JavaScript to install fonts internally. In the Tools
folder, Fonts/fontinst.exe and Fonts/fontinst.inf have been removed and
the Fonts folder moved to Graphics/Fonts. All the fonts in this folder
will be installed if Tools -> Install fonts is checked.
*** getOSver() returns 08 for Server 2008.

but can still be manually switched. (sadiqc)

Version 5.2 (July/31th/2006)


*** Changed and simplified the themes file, wpi.htm. The change has made
5.1 themes obsolete. But the changes made were for user submitted ideas
and removal of legacy code no longer used.
*** Fixed a bug in the themes dealing with the BgPicture.
*** If not playing audio in WPI, then the timer will click as it counts
down the final 10 seconds.

Version 5.1 (July/4th/2006)


*** Can now restart or shut down the computer after installation is
complete. Can also allow the Desktop to load or not.
Useful for making a Ghost image.
*** Now every text is localized.
The language files have many new lines in them.
*** Updated, "tricked", all the file requesters to clear the default file
before opening to prevent sending a file name if hit Cancel.
*** Took out all support for Disc Path. It was dead and a non-usable
function that was never accessible.
*** Fixed bug in timer progress bar count down. Was going way too fast.
*** Updated the options and config wizards to allow for creating new,
loading other, and saving current settings under different names.
There are new gadgets: New Options, Load, Save As...
*** The current files are displayed in the respective wizard. When exit
each wizard, that file is set as the default and will be loaded the next
time WPI is run. If the file does not exist it will default back to the
original: useroptions.js or config.js.
*** If the path contains '\WPI\WPIScripts\' it will be assumed the file is
in the WPI main folder and will change the path to
relative './WPIScripts/'.
*** The files should be kept in the WPIScripts folder.
*** With the new command line args, you will have to specify them in your
cmd script since they are saved as registry entries.
*** Updated the wpi.htm theme file yet again. Removed the config wizard
gadget template and updated it to match the options wizard template.
Sizes and locations are now consistent.
This does require a simple update to 5.0 themes.
***Added command line support to specify different config and
user options files:

WPI.hta options=useroptions_1.js config=config_1.js check=Work timer=30

If a path is not specified for the file, it will assume they are in
the WPIScripts folder.

It will still check for:

WPI.hta Work 30

for backwards compatibility. But update your tags, please.

They will probably change in the future.
Thanks to Dje again for the code and help.

NOTE: Paths can be full (starting with a drive letter) or relative to

WPI.hta (starting with '.\' or '..\') and must end in '.js'. Spaces are
supported only is a path is provided and properly quoted:
(config="c:\space in\file path.js").

*** Took out function path(). It was redundant of replpath(), which is now
ReplacePath(), and the redundant code was actually never used. It was
doing a check that would never be true. Dje then updated it more to
handle all environment variables easier.
*** Dje updated code to handle multiple lines in program names.
Just put a break <br/> in the text to break it.
*** Split the huge 300K lang.js file into separate language files to keep
RAM usage down and for easier editing. English is loaded as default,
followed by specified language. If text is missing, English is used.
*** Added a fix for PNG transparency problem.
*** Added Options -> Installer: Sort Within Categories. If checked will
sort the items in each of the categories. If not, then the order they
are created is maintained. Useful if you want items displayed or
installed in a certain order not condusive to order[].
***Fixed a bug with picw, pich, textl not displaying the proper values
in the Config wizard when switching entries. The default was being set
in the wrong function/location.
*** Updated code to reflect changes in config lists dynamically. No more
having to save the list first, reload,
then go back to Options -> Installer tab.
*** Added a drop down box in Config wizard to aid in the selecting of

not a config.js and useroptions.js file and the first config entry is
made; it would not show up.

Returns 1, 2, 3, etc., or 'Not found'.

Version 5.0.1 (June/23/2006)


*** Fixed the execute before\after errors.

*** Fixed the StopAudio issue.

Version 5.0 (June/10/2006)


*** Thanks to "almulder", the wizards now have background colors and
images for easier reading over the main background image.
I made it fully themed, which, changed the wpi.htm theme file some and
added some new images to the themes folder: OptionsBg.jpg,
OptionsTabDown.jpg, OptionsTabUp.jpg.
Look in the wpi.css for style sheet editing.
*** Nearly every item is now fully style sheet compliant. Added <hr> tags
for all the wizards text and buttons Look in the wpi.css for the new
options at the bottom and near the top.
*** Took out message after saving a config file.
Mouse goes busy and all buttons are disabled. Mostly for looks.
*** If a grayed condition is true, the checkbox is now disabled so there
is no way it can be selected.
*** Completely re-wrote the installer code with a lot of help from
user Dj�. The handling of arguments was not working in all situations.
RegEdit needed a little tweaking,
*** Added these new translations: German, Romanian, French, Polish,
and Russian. Thanks to all the translators.
*** Now when the option to disable category checkboxes is checked the
boxes will not even be shown.

Version 5.0rc2 (Mar/31/2006)


*** Fixed a bug with the install order numbering system.

*** Fixed a bug with the timer.
Version 5.0rc1 (Mar/30/2006)

*** Created built-in installer with progress bar and embedded Media Player.
There are no known problems with MSI installers.
*** Created new Config Wizard with only one set of gadgets. This greatly
reduces the time required to render the config because it used to
duplicate the 240 lines of code for each program. Hence,
if you have 100 programs, it would take 24,000 lines of code and a lot
of time to display.
*** Changed the base theme .htm and .css files to reflect the above
changes. It now checks for the minimum version required.
This will require all previous themes to be updated.
*** All .htm files have been cleaned up and MANY coding errors fixed.
*** All source files have been cleaned up and MANY errors corrected.
*** Most of the code has been touched and updated to reflect new changes.
*** Re-arranged some of the control buttons.

items better.

with one click. User request.

code. Smaller and cleaner code.
This also changed the Style[] flags a bit.
*** In Tools folder is a demo of Tip Message to show the possibilities by
simply changing the Style[] tags.
*** Added option to disable showing of tool tips.
*** Moved Text Indent from Config Wizard to Options Wizard so it gets set
globally. Having the option for every program is redundant and wastes
*** Config Wizard is now "smarter". Example: if picture not specified then
child gadgets are disabled and values not saved in config.js file.
*** Using the built-in WPIPath() instead of the
".\\common\\xxxxxx.yyy" method.
*** CD check now checks for the existence of 3 files. The absolute path
check looks for 2 files now.
*** Added MAKEDIR command to go along with FILECOPY, DIRCOPY, and RENAME.
*** Added an extra bug tracker. Still not perfect but better than what
was available.
*** Moved all the global variables from their respective .js file into
main.js to group them all together. Easier check for duplicate names
and for future enhancements.
*** Moved all .js files into WPIScripts.
*** Fixed bug in themes/wpi.htm in selecting the proper 'load_checks'.
It worked for defaults, but not a specified name.
*** Updated bug with cat and config drop-down box selection.
*** Removed Reload button from Options Wizard due to a snag in the way
the config lists drop down box needs to be updated.
*** Options Wizard: config list and check on load gadgets now work
*** Changed timer='yes'; and ReallyForce='yes'; to true/false statements.
WPI still checks for both for backwards compatibility.
More consistent with rest of options.
*** Took out smallbart.gif and smallbarb.gif in the themes.
*** Removed appsPerInstallWindow. No longer needed since not using
*** Removed all the 'var' tags from the useroptions.js file. Redundant.
*** Removed sorting option. It now always sorts the items in their
category. Now it checks if installByCategory=true, then it installs in
the order the items are listed in the windows (sortorder[]).
Else, it will install by user's specified order.
*** Category checkbox is now checked at start if all sub-items are
checked by default.
*** Updated ExtractArgs() and installer to allow spaces in path name.
*** Spread the Options out across 4 tabs: Interface, Installer, Tools,
and Miscellaneous, to un-crowd the window.
This is especially useful on screens less than 1280x1024.
*** The new Tools tab includes: Execute Before, Execute After,
and Restart Computer.
*** All the *** Yes *** No radio boxes have been replaced with
single checkboxes.
*** Added Exit buttons to all the config wizards. You still can click on
the button again to toggle back to main display.
*** Fixed a bug with ReallyForce. When hit Exit, it would install
everything that was checked, not just what was set as forced.
*** WPI now checks for a minimum version of useroptions.js.
This is due to the changing of several options� names.
The old file will have to be deleted and a new one saved.
*** WPI now checks for a minimum version of audio.js. Updated how the
file is saved. The old file will have to be deleted and a new one saved.
*** WPI.hta now internally sets and deletes the Registry keys
it needs to run properly.
*** WPI now internally changes the screen resolution, depth, and
refresh rates. Added new gadgets to Options->Tools.
*** WPI now internally installs fonts needed for themes and system use.
Added gadget to Options->Tools.
*** With the above updates, WPI.cmd is no longer necessary.
Run WPI.hta directly now.
*** Moved, and updated, the Audio Wizard from a stand-alone screen into
the Options tabbed screen. This removes the Audio Player button from
the main window. This also made saving the audio list much smaller so
it fits inside useroptions.js. audio.js, audiowizard.js, and
audiowizardtemplate.htm has been deleted.
*** Added file requesters to all options that could use it. Had to "trick"
the system into not showing the textbox associated with the button.
The only draw-back is that the file requester is read only, so can't
set a default path and if the user cancels a file selection, it uses
the last known selection. So it will throw in a previous selection if
you hit Cancel.
*** Updated the config wizard a bit to line up the horizontal rule.
*** Config wizard now handles pictures better: sets defaults sizes and
text locations.
*** The config editor now automatically replaces drive letters with
%CDROM% to make it a bit easier for you.
ex: C:\Install\Adobe.zip -> %CDROM%\Install\Adobe.zip
*** The install window now has a style sheet associated with it in the
Themes folder. Basic items like fonts and colors can be changed.
WPI still controls the font size of the programs listing text.
*** By making the install window a normal window, the audio had to be
removed and the old external audio player is used.
*** Added Extra Width and Extra Height gadgets to the Options ->
Installer tab to increase the size of the install window if needed for
longer text or larger fonts. The window does not resize automatically.
Needed for localization.
*** Separated all the Show Optional Buttons to their own option to show
only what you want to see.
*** Added to Options -> Miscellaneous, Log Installation process.
Useful for error checking of path names and such.
*** Re-arranged the Config wizard gadgets into a more logical order.
*** Added DELETE to the list of built-in commands.
*** If no install order is specified then entries now start at 900,000
instead of 5,000 to allow for category numbering.
*** When go into the Options or Config wizards, the Begin Install button
is hidden so you are forced to save your work or toggle out before you
can begin installing.
*** Fully themed the installer window via the style sheet installer.css.
Images are now in the Themes folder: InstallBg.jpg, InstallProgBar.png,
InstallSuccess.gif, InstallFail.gif, InstallPartial.gif
*** Added check boxes for Execute Before/After to disable them for
testing purposes.
*** Split part of main.js code into core.js to have the basic routines
available for installer.hta and wpi.hta in smaller chunks.
Made each of those files smaller; removed redundant code.
*** Themed the countdown timer. Uses InstallProgBar.png for the image.
*** Every text is now localized, with the exception of a
few error messages.
*** If the useroptions.js file does not exists, a set of default
settings will be saved.
