Requires: Win7/Vista/XP

Windows Post-Install Wizard (WPI for short) is a hypertext application designed for giving users choice. While Windows XP offers many ways of customizing the setup process out of the box, its major drawback is the lack of being able to select which applications an end user may install. In the past, end users and administrators needed to either download the files manually, or create overly complex scripts that could only be used once. WPI allows you to create one image, which can then be custom configured, and optionally, automated, so that end users can install any applications.
Requirements Originally, WPI was designed to run at 800X600. WPI 3.5 now theoretically supports all possible resolutions. WPI also requires the Windows Scripting host. Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista can run .HTA Files right out of the box by default. WPI now supports custom made user friendly themes for full customization. WPI has been tested and used on all Windows operating systems from 98 onwards just make sure IE is updated. It’s recommended that you have:
  • Internet Explorer 6 (which comes with XP).
  • Knowledge of program installation switches.
  • Time to configure the thing.
  • Some patience.
  • Also if your project is very ambitious you might consider VMWare or Virtual PC (Which is now free) for testing.
