but would just an empty [Data] section work? or would it wipe that whole section if a user alredy has lines under that section?

An empty [Data] section in WINNT.SIF will not do the trick : we neet to provide values for at least these 3 keys to get [GuiUnattended] parsed : Autopartition / MsDosInitiated / UnattendedInstall.

For just over 700kb - these little games make a good addition to a pre install - quick and easy - single files, Free. . .

I have got your latest and greatest version now and thanks for taking the time for us all.

1 More advice I can give - make a Dropdown combo that lists the contents off %AppPath%\Apps - that way people can add their own tools as SFX or single exe files to run during setup (if they wished too).

Dynamic List generating is the best way, Wish WPI had it - then I'd not have had to make my own :D

Sure I will add this feature, but for now I'm just highly busy :D
Let me first finish my unattended XP disc and I will handle that.

The only problem I see with this is the way some programs are named. While I am sure most could be figured out, I would still like to see the ini file implemented instead. This way, our own custom programs and etc can be set in it. It would be a template for many wonderful uses.

im not sure for what reason you will need an ini here whether the author wants to base it on ini or not ... optional or not ...

in any case, the files are to run from a detached directory only!
considering that, customizing through an ini cant be all practical for all this is doing!/!

sol.exe = "solitaire" can be easily renamed with integrator using expandcab & [filemove] ...to overwrite it by name
the script makes a list without the files extensions and you got perfect listing/naming ...

ENU_user : Ini file will keep me from removing file extension, and will allow better translation. Indead, while 'MS Hearts' is the english name, french name is 'Dame de piques'.

By the way, I'm back to university for my latest year, and it will be hard to find the time to update time, but I'll try.

Cheers,
Kal

How compatible is this "addon" with the x64 bit version of windows xp setup?

And if this is not compatible, how hard would it be to make it compatible?

The links are dead. Yep, I know I'm late by ~3yrs to the party :(

Could anyone please re-mirror this amazing addon? Having the source code would be the icing on the cake :-)
