Example .bat file to generate a Thinstall project using a start and ending snapshot

snapshot c:\start.snapshot
echo Please install application and press ENTER when installation is complete
snapshot C:\end.snapshot
snapshot C:\start.snapshot -SuggestProject c:\end.snapshot c:\SuggestedProject.ini

rem at this point a GUI app can look at SuggestedProject and ask the user what EXEs they want to be accessible from package.ini)
snapshot C:\SuggestedProject.ini -GenerateProject c:\ProjectLocation
del C:\start.snapshot
del C:\end.snapshot
del C:\SuggestedProject.ini
