Huh? When I run setup.exe I get a GUI - one we all know and love!
So it's the command line option or PTC. ;-) I would think a batch
file that one can point and click on would satisfy the "point and
clicky" crowd but I'm sure you understand your users better than I.I'll poke around at this when I get back to work. I don't run Windows at
home anymore (Well I do have a Win 7 install on a dual boot but this is
the weekend after all!).
'setup.exe --help' at a command line will give you the list of
And yes a .bat file that you double click would probably suffice however
there is something in the whole setup structure that make certain
packages install by default (e.g. bash.exe) and other packages come up
as "Skip" (i.e. OpenSSH). I'd like to toggle it on for OpenSSH and rxvt
such that when setup.exe runs and they get to the package selection
screen, it says the version number for these and will install them by
default (IOW it won't list them as "Skip"). Is that too much to ask?
