AutoSPInstallerGUI gets a refresh

If you use AutoSPInstaller to install SharePoint, you are probably already familiar with AutoSPInstallerGUI.

Well, in the past, AutoSPInstallerGUI has been a .NET WinForms application but has recently been migrated to a web application at the following Url: http://autospinstaller.azurewebsites.net

The web based interface is definitely much easier to walk through than the earlier tab-based interface which made the configuration steps quite confusing.  The new web based interface works much like a standard wizard providing logical steps and validation on each step to ensure all of the entries are correctly populated.

Once you are done with the wizard, you can simply copy and paste the XML from the TextArea into your own AutoSPInstallerInput.xml file.  Ideally, the website would provide a way to simply download the AutoSPInstallerInput.xml file in its entirety rather than requiring a copy and paste operation but hopefully this feature will be added to the site in the near future.
