    Is there a way to develop an executable that could recognize the Wii U formatted USB drive on PC and install games from there? (Like the Wii Backup Manager thar did it with the .wbfs format).

    For sure these games were not installed with the real ticket properly but could be loaded from normal Wii U menu under certain conditions like a RedNAND or IOSUhax.

    yes, there's a way to do it.
    No, nobody did it yet.

    capable developers are probably busy on other projects, one at a time !
    I think making hacking easier is the current focus (less tools and safer steps to hack the console), then they will be free to look at any other loading methods.
    Unless someone is working on it, but hasn't mention it yet (and that's a good decision to not talk about incomplete or unstarted projects).


    What you mentioned is only one way to do it.
    second way to do it is making a loader (loadiine) to work with FAT32 or exFAT drives, allowing partitions and a single drive for both Wii and WiiU. And this second way is more requested by users than the first one.

    we don't know which one will be worked on first, maybe both will eventually be possible.
