Installing RealPopup with WPKG

I installed RealPopup 2.6 Build 167 on a Windows 7 system using WPKG, which is open source software for deployment and distribution of software. I created a realpopup.xml file which I placed in WPGK's packages directory on the server from which I install software. The realpopup.xml file contained the following commands:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<packages>
      
<package
   id="RealPopup"
   name="RealPopup"
   revision="1"
   priority="3"
   reboot="false">
 
   <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="RealPopup"/>
 
   <install cmd='%SOFTWARE%\Network\Chat\RealPopup\realp26_167.exe /sp- /verysilent /Dir="%PROGRAMFILES%\Network\Chat\RealPopup"'/>
 
   <upgrade cmd='%SOFTWARE%\Metwork\Chat\RealPopup\realp26_167.exe /sp- /verysilent /Dir="%PROGRAMFILES%\Network\Chat\RealPopup"'/>
 
   <remove cmd='"%PROGRAMFILES%\Network\Chat\RealPopup\unins000.exe" /sp- /verysilent /norestart'/>
 
</package>

</packages>

%SOFTWARE% is a variable representing the directory on the server where software to be installed is located. I was able to specify the directory where the software should be installed with /Dir="%PROGRAMFILES%\Network\Chat\RealPopup" rather than having to accept the default installation directory, since RealPopup uses Inno Setup, an open source installer, to install RealPopup. I could tell beforehand that it uses Inno Setup by analyzing it with Filealyzer.

The developer's website no longer exists, but I found the software still works under Windows 7. The program provides a capability to chat with other users on the same LAN. It supports many useful features such as options for users and groups, an internal network browser, names auto complete, and so on. RealPopup is available in more than 12 languages.

Installing PuTTY 0.60 with WPKG

I installed PuTTY on a system using WPKG, which is open source software for deployment and distribution of software. I created a putty.xml file which I placed in WPGK's packages directory on the server from which I install software. The putty.xml file contained the following commands:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<packages>
      
<package
   id="PuTTY"
   name="PuTTY"
   revision="0600"
   priority="1"
   reboot="false">
 
   <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="PuTTY version 0.60"/>
 
   <install cmd='%SOFTWARE%\network\ssh\putty-0.60-installer.exe /sp- /verysilent /Dir="%PROGRAMFILES%\Network\SSH\PuTTY"'/>
 
   <upgrade cmd='%SOFTWARE%\network\ssh\putty-0.60-installer.exe /sp- /verysilent'/>
 
   <remove cmd='"%PROGRAMFILES%\Network\SSH\PuTTY\unins000.exe" /sp- /verysilent /norestart'/>
 
</package>

%SOFTWARE% is a variable representing the directory on the server where software to be installed is located. I was able to specify the directory where the software should be installed with /Dir="%PROGRAMFILES%\Network\SSH\PuTTY" rather than having to accept the default installation directory of %PROGRAMFILES%\PuTTY , since PuTTY uses Inno Setup, an open source installer, to install PuTTY. I could tell beforehand that it uses Inno Setup by analyzing it with Filealyzer.
