  1. Metro Tile Custimization

    Could you update the script for Windows 8.1? Thank you for your help.
  2. @nice_guy75 Thanks for your summary. Is your method of using vLite primarily based on dead0's guide? @bphlpt I agree with what you said regarding Windows 7 Toolkit. The problem is that it does not remove components as many as RT 7 Lite. And, I don't think that I can make this request, which is not in line with Legolash2o's original intention. I am sure that some of us would like to have smallest Windows image as possible, without overly affecting its stability.
  3. Sorry, can anyone provide an honest and unbiased assessment in comparing between Windows 7 Toolkit, RT 7 Lite and vLite? I realize that each software has its own pros and cons. Can Windows 7 Toolkit perform what RT 7 Lite can do, and achieve a very slimmed-down stable image? In term of component removal, which software can remove more components? No ill intention is intended. I just want to know what the best tool is. Thank you for the information.
  4. [SOLVED] problem with Vlite 1.2 and Win7 SP1 (MSDN)

    @myselfidem Off topic a bit, you could choose to post a direct link to the post. On the upper right corner of each post, is the post number, such as #153 in this post. Right click the post number and copy the direct link of the post. That way, your post would contain the direct link to the indicated post, instead of having other readers manually scrolling down the page to find the quoted post. Anyway, I notice that you always try to answer many inquires in this forum and try to be as helpful as you can. It is a definitely commendable effort from you. Keep up the good work.
  5. [SOLVED] problem with Vlite 1.2 and Win7 SP1 (MSDN)

    @vincentvega007 Sorry for confusion. I was not questioning your ability of slimming down Windows. Anyone using a customized Windows 7 SP1 with IE 9 integrated, should not be installing IE9, because it has been integrated. That is why I found it weird that you have to install IE 9, as if you did not integrate IE 9 at all.
  6. Breaking news on RT 7 Lite 3.0 as provided by the administrator of RT Seven Lite Forum: I quote the entire message here for your convenience:
  7. Problem starting Werconcpl.dll

    Well, I did realize my "/spoiler" mistake yesterday, but somehow post editing did not allow me to edit the post throughout yesterday. Luckily, I managed to correct it just now. Thanks for head-up, myselfidem.
  8. Problem starting Werconcpl.dll

    @myselfidem Thanks for sharing your method of customzing Windows. It is good to know other prespective and opinion in modifying Windows. Just protect werconcpl.dll and you should be able to remove Error Reporting with no problem. Here is my list of protected files, which I gathered from various guides here. It is a bit overprotective, but it is better to be safe than sorry.
  9. Problem starting Werconcpl.dll

    @myselfidem So, for your customized Windows 7 SP1, you do not remove any components. I guess that component removal may cause quite a bit of problems for all of us. Thus, what do you modify in your customized Windows 7 SP1, rather than integrating updates and drivers? Do you use other software rather than vLite in constructing your image? Pardon my curiosity here, but it would be good for me to learn how other experts like you in modifying the Windows image.
  10. [SOLVED] problem with Vlite 1.2 and Win7 SP1 (MSDN)

    @ vincentvega007 I would suggest that you integrate the msu version of IE9 into your image. The direct link for IE9 are as follow: Win7 x86: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=210145 x64: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=210143 I mean, you really do not have to wait after Windows installation, to use Windows Update to install IE9. As for some updates failed to be installed, I believe that the updates tried to update some components you have removed via vLite, and thus failed. I do encounter such case for my slimmed-down Windows 7 SP1. There is nothing much you can do, rather than rebuild a new image by integrating all newer updates before using vLite.
  11. [SOLVED] problem with Vlite 1.2 and Win7 SP1 (MSDN)

    @bapt Thank you so much for your explanation. You are very helpful. For me, after using RT 7 Lite as suggested in your steps, I would suggest executing the batch removal file via Gimage to remove redundant fonts. This batch file originates from dead0's guide. That way, we can achieve further slim down of the image. So, you remove winsxs via RT 7 Lite. Can you install Windows updates to your Windows? Do you integrate the msu version of Internet Explorer 9 into your image before using vLite? Do you remove winsxs?
  12. You can use RT 7 Lite 1.7.0 RC to slim down Windows 7 SP1 (MSDN) image and it will work well. This is how I create my customized Windows. RT 7 Lite 1.7.0 RC will treat Windows 7 SP1 as if it is just Windows 7 RTM with no Service Pack, so the integration and component removal will remain just the same. You do not have to use RT 7 Lite 2.6.0 Beta, since SP1 has been integrated inside the MSDN image.
  13. [SOLVED] problem with Vlite 1.2 and Win7 SP1 (MSDN)

    bapt Thank you very much for replying to my question and supplying your preset. 1. So, how do you integrate Windows update? Is it via DISM? 2. As for integrating drivers, do you use RT 7 Lite to integrate drivers? 3. I understand your highly recommended solution stating that first use Gimagex, integrate the updates, then vLite and finally RT 7 Lite. For all of this steps, we do not need to install WAIK for Windows Vista and WAIK for Windows 7, right? I only have to insert vista vimfltr and wimgapi.dll in vLite folder. Thanks again for your help.
  14. [SOLVED] problem with Vlite 1.2 and Win7 SP1 (MSDN)

    Me, I use first Gimagex then Vlite and I finally rt7lite if we use first rt7lite is an error message launching Vlite about the boot (boot-optimized by rt7lite and not "compatible" with vLite) bapt I do not really understand what you meant with the bolded part. As recommended, I used Gimagex to create a modified wim of Windows 7 SP1 (MSDN). Subsequently, I used RT 7 Lite to integrate Windows updates and remove components. However, after this step, if I use vLite to slim down this image, vLite will stop responding. Is this what you meant by error message launching vLite? You suggested to use vLite after using GImagex, but vLite cannot be used to integrate Windows updates to the image. Moreover, we should not remove components prior to integrating updates to the image. By your method "I use first Gimagex then Vlite and I finally rt7lite", could you explain when the time to integrate updates is? It would be very helpful if you can share your RT 7 Lite and vLite preset, so that I would know components that should be removed by respective software. Thank you very much.
  15. RT7Lite Slipstream or integrate update

    In this thread, MagicAndre1981 suggested a way to remove IE 8, for those who have IE 9 installed. I have neither tested it yet, nor thought of a way to integrate the command to RT 7 Lite.
