Hi Falko,
i am new to wpkg, very new. I use it since this week. I will have a look 
at how to create a page at wpkg.org, but first i think i should find out 
how to update xampp.
Anyway, silent installation is done by:
xampp-win32-1.7.3.exe -dC:\ -s1 -spauto
By this, xampp is installed/copied into c:\xampp

A very good idea. Old configuration files shall not be saved but 
overwritten at my site.

I have no clue how to do that. Is text extraction and comparison 
anywhere documented?

Thanks a lot
