I could get a WAD for this game. I believe that WUP installer GX installs the files once they are in .app etc format. So I found a program ShowMiiWads 1.4 x64 that seems to extract the files fine and they look this.

This looks right to me and they are in SD/install/Bomberman blast. However the loader can't see any entry for bomberman at all. Why can't I install files by putting them in the directory? Is there something I am missing to get the installler to see the files

best option imo is to use usb loader gx. it can create an emunand for you and inject wads with unlimited space and no risk to the system. they're both under "features" if I'm not mistaken.

I don't think I explained myself properly. I want to inject this game to work directly from the Wii U menu and external storage. So I found a way to convert the wad files to iso, then used TechoMoon injector to convert the files into a format WUP Installer can install onto the channel. All the files look like they are in the correct format just like the other injected files but they do not appear in the list of installable games in the WUP installer. Am I missing something, is there something else that the WUP installer is looking for?

While it looks good on first try it doesn't on second:
  • No .h3 files
  • The .tik, .cert and .tmd files have the wrong filenames.
  • There should be no .trailer file.
Or as @godreborn already told:
they're not the same thing.

I don't think I explained myself properly. I want to inject this game to work directly from the Wii U menu
The problem is not you're not explainig yourself probably but you not listening:
can't put wads on the wii u menu.

You can't convert a wad to iso as it would have to be installed to vwii and then a forwarder can be installed on wii u side that points to the wad in vwii.

The output you got when you converted the wad is missing files (as per @V10lator post) so it will never be installed I'm afraid, you will have to follow the advice above from myself or @godreborn.
