I perfectly agree with you.

For that i think that add to WPKG ''os detection code'' is the wrong way,
but here we are speaking about ''adding conditional execution/parsing''
of some XML node, that i think is more general and more WPKG-way... ;)

Clearly, xenophobia. ;-)

I think that there's no need to ask why there's so much programming

In CMD i particulary hate to write exit codes conditions, while using ''one
<install /> line per command'' approach it is very easy.

I'm deeply tighted to an 'XPsp3 32bit' environment and i will keep here
for at least two yers... so for me no problem at all. ;)
