for information there are similar but different amigaguide solution to search and launch pre-installed whdload's games and demos:

Indeed, i had longtimes ago done amigaguide files to search and launch installed whdload's game on HD
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=19691

or

here last links:
http://aminet.net/package/util/wb/whdautolaunch
http://aminet.net/package/text/hyper/searchguidecf
see avi video for démonstration in attachement in rar archive...

I use this tools and amigaguide file since many years to search or/and launch my whdload's games using amigaguide file

Look video and you understand that it's simple

Indeed amigafile is already created, you have just to install this 2 tools on hard drive and modify folder parameters in file 'env-archive:WhdAutolaunch.prefs'.


But installed whdload's games must be placed in folder like:
A/
Ad/
Al/
B/
Bo/
...


And, games name's folder must use the protocol of whdload's package names.
By example for 'AlienBreed3D.lha' installer package, game must be installed in:
A/AlienBreed3D
or
Al/AlienBreed3D


So game folder will be automatically seeked in/
A/
Ab/
Ac/
Ad/
Ae/
....

if game is found when you click on game name in amigaguide file, game will be automatically launched or the game's folder opened or a choice menu will be appeared according your parameters set in 'Env-archive/WHDAutoLaunch.prefs' file.
(see doc for more explain)
