WPKG installer 0.70 has been released.
It is the recommended way of starting WPKG.


*  it's now possible to export all settings to a XML file (for scripted 
* it's now possible to run all the installers either in background, or 
in the foreground


* GUI mode and command line for scripted installations
* ability to start WPKG from any local or network share (a password 
protected share with a limited-right user access recommended)
* ability to start WPKG as any user (starting as SYSTEM recommended)
* ability to start additional programs/scripts before and after starting 
* ability to set an arbitrary number of variables
* can start all the programs/installers totally in the background 
(recommended), or in the foreground (not recommended, as users can 
interact with the installers; but recommended for debugging)

Planned features:

* ability to choose a priority for the services (older workstations 
might need a lower priority)

* writing help :) - anyone wants to do it?

* ability to delay user logon (ctrl+alt+del box) until all the apps are 
installed - still uncertain how to do it - if anyone has an idea, let us
