  1. I'm looking for this also. Ive got packages.xls but it cant be right. Some of the info is clearly wrong.
  2. I have been trying to understand this also. I have removed from my x86 win7 sp1 source with rt7lite and vlite and gotten the image down quite small but not where i wanted it. There is still more that can be removed and youl find directories within the windows folder of your mounted wim that are massive (winsxs & assembly are 2). There are guides on here of manually deleting files from a mounted wim but the problems are that you can not delete the files without file permission errors because they are protected. Now install_wim_tweak allows you to remove those files without the permission errors but you still have another problem. The problem youl face is durring install. The files you remove are requested by the installer and if there missing you get an error and the install will fail. I am still trying to understand if there is a central install listing of all files like there was in XP or if its all controlled by the hives in the install.wim. If its controlled by the hives how come install_wim_tweak does not work when you remove files and commit the changes? I recently removed a bunch of files from assembly after loading install_wim_tweak and my install failed. What did I do wrong?
  3. IT was a brand new wim saved to a different directory. I cant find whereisit. Can you give me a link to it? I will try to do the rtlite part againa and see if it works ok with vlite. Thanks
  4. aviv00.. I have been trying to get vlite to run with my wim x86 win7 sp1 which has been rebuilt after running rt 7 lite (method 5). I used the apply capture trick with gimagex. This still leads to a problem when using your sp1_2 ini file. Vlite crashes with no error just goes away. I have tried this vlite step on winxp, win7 sp0 and a win7 x64 and its always the same except on the x64 where it says vlite has stopped working and then it asks would you like to close it. I even went back to tried vlite 1.1.6 and its the same. I also tried to remove remove the winsxs from the components removal and no luck either. Is there any way I can do this without vlite? Or do you know why vlite is not letting me progress? It could be because I have a number of updates applied to my win7 sp1. They are security updates but thats all I can think of. Maybe vlite cant handle those. Any thoughts or suggestions you can offer me? Also have you heard of w7t.exe its a nice gui and allows you to remove winsxs but not anymore then rt 7 lite as far as componts. Thanks
  5. I keep having a problem with vlite with windows 7 sp1 and running from host Win7 Sp0. It instantly crashes in the removing componets part. I am still testing to see if some combanation will make this crash stop. I have tried the apply capture and it still crashes. Hope to find an answer but if anyone has some suggestions to that I would be glad to hear.
  6. Hi all. Just read about 25 pages here, been out of the scene a while. What I am trying to understand is I have a list of packages I want to remove for a language in windows 7 ultimate x86. The list is complete and when I input it into DISM I get errors after about the second package. I think this has to do with the packages/registery being locked. Whatever this install_win_tweak.exe does I think I need it or whatever tool is evolutionaryly better. I tried it and nullify which did not work same DISM errors. So either I'm doing something wrong or there is an evolutionary better way I have yet to find. Also the link for install_win_tweak.exe is broken here. I got a copy from another site but not sure if its working. The error I get in DISM is the specified image is no longer serviceable 800f0830 I am trying to remove the following packages: /PackageName:Microsoft-Media-Foundation-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Branding-Ultimate-Client-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Client-Drivers-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Client-Features-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Client-LanguagePack-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Client-Refresh-LanguagePack-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Client-Wired-Network-Drivers-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-ClipsInTheLibrary-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-CodecPack-Basic-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Common-Drivers-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Disk-Diagnosis-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Gadget-Platform-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-GPUPipeline-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy-ClientExtensions-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy-ClientTools-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-ICM-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Media-Format-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-MediaPlayback-OC-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-MediaPlayer-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-NetFx3-OC-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-PeerToPeer-Full-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-PhotoPremiumPackage~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Printing-Foundation-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-RemoteAssistance-Package-Client~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-SearchEngine-Client-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-SecureStartup-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-ShareMedia-ControlPanel-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Shell-HomeGroup-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-SnippingTool-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-CommandLineTools-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-MiscRedirection-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-Publishing-WMIProvider-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-RemoteApplications-Client-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-UsbRedirector-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-WMIProvider-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-WindowsFoundation-LanguagePack-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-WMPNetworkSharingService-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514 Why do I get this error and what tool will help. Believe me I have searched high and low for an answer on this and I keep finding new tools but nothing that actually does what the good old Dism command line tool can do. Ive tried them all and removing this language either fails or never starts. I believe this has to do with the servicable error that I see when I do this manually that I dont see when using jim jim dism tool or RT seven lite etc. I hope someone can shed some light or point me in the right direction. Been looking at this same problem for over a week now. I hate posting as usually can find stuff but no such luck with this.
  7. Mark, Like yourself I have always liked the simple search in old XP. Before MS got index happy. Anyway in Win7 I have removed search but the framework of it is still there. It works in explorer and functions like XP's search did almost. I dont really care about it as long as I can do date and file size searches. I use everything search for the rest as its insanely fast. Anyway outlook 2007 breaks the explorer bar search and completely removes it from the UI. It took me a while to track down what part of Office 2k7 was doing it. I should have known it would be outlook. If you keep outlook the search stays.. If you remove outlook the search goes. Anyway I hate outlook and dont use it. I will keep it for now till I find out a way to re-enable the search in explorer without having outlook installed. It must register a DLL or make a reg entry or something to keep to remove the search. I just dont know what it is. There is no longer outlook express so I'm not sure why this happens. If anyone has a clue. Let me know.
  8. Not so. When you uncheck autoarrange, it holds that setting when you close the window and even when you restart the PC. I think most people reported the same as well. What it fails to do is make the setting global. You have to uncheck autoarrange for each **** folder you open except the ones you've already unchecked, those remain unchecked. That was my only gripe. Now some even reported @ that it worked for them globally, but for most it hasnt. So it seems its not consistent. As someone else mentioned, it may help if you put it into a reg file to get it into wider circulation. I think its not much use just discussing one persons experiences with it which may not hold for others. * d.amn is a censored word? Amnex no worries. I could not get it to stay with the other reg so thats why I went looking for a better solution. I think I was the first to figure out what FFLags value causes it to be unchecked & then to apply that to the folder template globally. I've gone a step further now & have foldertypes set with this reg and streams set also but foldertypes only picks up some of the values as there all in streams. Either way I got those set incase I ever hit the folder options reset all folders it will not turn back on. I'll be glad to share that also if anyone cares but as long as u dont reset all folders this reg/settings will stay put.
  9. Ok not to get really picky. But the topic you pointed to cluberti is for winXP. I tried every single one of the old reg fixes from XP, and Vista before I found this one. Most of the entries are either very different or use new values. MS changed the entries so this feature could not be turned off like it could in the older versions. **amenx** if you had read that topic its only half the answer. Ramesh in his thread only figured out how to make auto arrange show in the context menu. Have you tried to uncheck it and then close the window and go back to that folder in icon view? Or restart? (not sure about details view) If you do with his reg applied youl notice that the **** thing just comes right back. That is what got me soo annoyed and why I spend 3 days trying to figure out what values do what and which one could actually turn it off globally. If you look at the comments I tried to ask him for help at one point before I figured it out myself. I also posted my answer on his blog also. I explained what the other values are and what they do and which one I believe controls the Auto Arrange feature. The only ones I dont know are posted below and now in this tread. The only person that I believe can answer these remaining questions is Keith Miller from MS. From his posts at other forums I was able to piece together this solution.
  10. This is why MSFN has gone down hill. I cant believe no one cares here to even make a comment. This is one of the most annoying features in windows 7 and has more complaints then any other bar none. I have figured out how to bring auto arrange back and no one cares? WOW
  11. I've found a solution to MS taking Auto Arrange & Align to grid out of windows 7. I'm coming right from XP so for those of you who knew some of this from vista bare with me. It should be noted that if any feature disappears from a version of windows and it was in the last version you can bet Microsoft just removed the feature from the user interface and most likely its just buried away somewhere. Much like this one was taken away through the registry. Auto arrange is your is feature that Microsoft has forced upon us in Win7 and here is how to turn it off. My fix turns it off Globally but you can do it whatever way you like. Ill attempt to explain what these reg values do but some are still unknown. I would like some confirmation on what some of the other keys do under this entry. So if you can help please do as some are still a mystery. Some of the keys below were in other versions of windows but have different values from previous versions of windows. For example FFlags is one that was but you can not use XP or vista FFlags values as they are different. First navigate to this section of the registry. Then Delete the Bags key there. This will clear out all saved folder view currently stored in the registry. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;Delete all Bags entries, storing view settings first ;___________________________________________________ [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags] Bags can then be recreated either manually or just open up explorer and navigate to any folder. Refresh regedit and it will be back. Then under Bags create \AllFolders\Shell\{5C4F28B5-F869-4E84-8E60-F11DB97C5CC7}] If you copy the above txt and the text below and you can do it all at once in a reg file. Just copy and paste the following into a txt file and rename to reg and import. For the newbies UAC will come up and ask you to confirm say yes. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{5C4F28B5-F869-4E84-8E60-F11DB97C5CC7}] Then you see the entry under that section and can navigated to in regedit. What you have created there is the generic template folder. {5C4F28B5-F869-4E84-8E60-F11DB97C5CC7} One thing I am still trying to figure out is where in the registry these values are pulled if you do not set them like we are doing here. Since under customize this folder these templates get created with default MS values. The Global template for folders are as follows. {5C4F28B5-F869-4E84-8E60-F11DB97C5CC7} =none specific {7d49d726-3c21-4f05-99aa-fdc2c9474656} =Docs template {94d6ddcc-4a68-4175-a374-bd584a510b78} =Music template {b3690e58-e961-423b-b687-386ebfd83239} =Pics template {5fa96407-7e77-483c-ac93-691d05850de8} =Video template The templates above sets up how a folders view is interpreted in windows. Keep in mind the AllFolders entry used below does not exist in win 7 default unless you apply the template through customize this folder context menu or set them yourself. The edits to these templates are also applied moving forward to all folders you customize with the template. Where the MS default template originates in the registry is unknown. You can edit all of the templates in the way we are editing the generic template. The one difference is with the video template you get an option to hide/show file names. Other then that they are the same except how the files are shown. [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell\{5C4F28B5-F869-4E84-8E60-F11DB97C5CC7}] Entries under the above key and what they do: “Rev”=dword:00000000 = When this is set to 0. I believe this is what actually causes auto arrange and align to grid to show in context menus. Need to confirm this as I'm not sure and no amount of googling has helped. “FFlags”=dword:43000001 = auto arrange checked but showing. 43000000 turns it off for any folder the template is applied to. “Vid”=”{0057D0E0-3573-11CF-AE69-08002B2E1262}” = the icon view used. See below (same as vista). View Mode vid Icons 1 {0057D0E0-3573-11CF-AE69-08002B2E1262} List 3 {0E1FA5E0-3573-11CF-AE69-08002B2E1262} Details 4 {137E7700-3573-11CF-AE69-08002B2E1262} Thumbnail5 {8BEBB290-52D0-11D0-B7F4-00C04FD706EC} Tiles 6 {65F125E5-7BE1-4810-BA9D-D271C8432CE3} Filmstrip 7 {8EEFA624-D1E9-445B-94B7-74FBCE2EA11A} “Mode”=dword:00000001 = Icon view as above (same as vista) “LogicalViewMode”=dword:00000001 = Align to grid checked I believe. dword:00000003 makes it unchecked “IconSize”=dword:00000030 Size of icons used. See below. 10/30/60/100 Small/Medium/Large/X-Large Icons Icons view can use all Icon sizes. Tiles uses 30 on and details and list views use 10 only. "Sort"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,30,f1,\ 25,b7,ef,47,1a,10,a5,f1,02,60,8c,9e,eb,ac,0a,00,00,00,01,00,00,00 I believe this hex value under sort sets it to type but can not confirm this. There are some other entries under this key. ColInfo GroupView GroupByKey GroupByDirection I have no idea what they do in the template. However I believe colinfo controls the navigation on the left showing. If anyone knows what these do It would be interesting to know for ref. If you want the icon view set to 30.

  12. Yep it seems like it is. No errors so far in vmware. THANKS NUHI!!! I hope there are none on a real machine. Should be the same though.
  13. Interesting. I was just mentioning some problems I was having like this in another topic. Back when Sp2 had come out. I noticed some strange differences between XP slipstreamed SP2 compared with MSDN XP SP2 pre-integrated discs used with nlite when removing the same things. I was also not using any other customizing apps. I would get very different results from the pre-integrated once installed. Some errors like this one but also internet problems. I eventually gave up and started using 2003. Now I am back to XP with SP3 and I was concerned about those problems coming up again with pre-integrated Sp3 discs. I only have the pre-integrated disc to use so i hope that whatever happened back then nuhi has it figured out now. I did use your newest version 1.4.8 with my sp3 disc. Can someone confirm who has also used a SP3 pre-integrated disc that this problem has been fixed in 1.4.8 and that there are no other issues that come up? THANKS
  14. You may be one of the first to come across this problem. I figured things out by using a synchronizer, in my case ViceVersa Pro (you can download a trial). -That gives you the exact difference between two installation sets. It is probably best to figure that out first. I have beyond compare. I ran the comparison on SP2 integrated and Slipstreamed and there were differences but there were not many differences in the individual files compared. The differences were just dates on the files. However there were more files in the slipstreamed version as I recall. Now I have not done the same with SP3. The thing is the files that were missing from the pre-integrated SP2 did not seem to be very important. They were files for items I usually would remove with nlite anyway. My conclusion was that even with the differences Nlite should not yield these strange results that I found. I believe the real issue here was the fact that some of the sif files and other files nlite edits were organized differently and that was causing the problems. Has anyone else used a pre-integrated source with nlite and had any strange results? I would like to hear about it. I think there is something here.
  15. So no one has a possible answer to this question. Has anyone tried SP3 slipstreamed and SP3 pre integrated with nlite and seen a difference once installed?
