    Default I want a list of apps included in BT4

    I want the list of all apps so that I can replace everything that can replaced in Win XP so that I get use to the apps in there in Win XP first.

    I think he wants to see what tools from backtrack have windows versions to install in his windows xp machine.

    To the OP, it's not a very smart move, but ok...

    Code:
    dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall > installed_apps.txt

    I usually just do the following, but I guess your method works too.

    Code:
    dpkg -l
    The /pentest directory should also be checked.

    Well, I do it that way as part of a procedure I use when I upgrade my OS (clean install).

    I run that command and save the file. Then I install the new release and run the command again and save it as new_apps.txt

    Then I substract:

    Code:
    comm -3 installed_apps.txt new_apps.txt > to_be_installed.txt
    So I can install what is missing:

    Code:
    apt-get install dselect
    
    dpkg --set-selections < to_be_installed.txt
    
    aptitude update
    
    dselect install

    You're only going to get a half dozen apps that have windows versions.
