  1. Hi, i have idea for future version of WinAero Tweaker. Since the app support silent install, i want u update about ability import tweaks configuration by command line (ex: winaerotweaker.exe /IMPORT:imported_file_location.cfg) or importing tweaks while performing silent install (ex: winaerotweaker-setup.exe /SP- /VERYSILENT /IMPORT:imported_file_location.cfg) instead of importing tweaks configuration manually by GUI.

    But first of all, u need to fix any bugs about export/import tweaks mechanism


    1. Completely agree with your suggestion here, firming up the import / export capability in conjunction with the silent install would make a log of people very very happy.

      I can see how easy it would be to include this as part of the post deployment script when deploying new pc’s!
