Simple editor for WPI configuration files.

Introduction

Windows Post-Install Wizard (WPI) is a hypertext application principally designed to automate the installation of applications on a clean Windows install. It includes an editor for the configuration files. This editor allows the user to change the basic settings (not all) for installed applications. It also provides an easy way to restrict applications based on OS (XP/Vista) and system architecture (x64/x86).

Background

WPI can be used to simplify application installation.

Using the Code

Download and install WPI. Open the configuration file from the WPI Config Editor. Note that not all of the settings available in WPI are editable here. If you have a more advanced WPI configuration, do not use WPI Config Editor, it will overwrite all of your settings.

Regular Expressions are used to parse the config file.

The UI controls are databound.

Points of Interest

I use this tool as part of a process to build painless Windows installations on a suite of machines with hugely varied hardware and software. The following resources are useful to achieve this end:
