  1. I tried using both winsxslite as well as this method by aviv00 to change a win7x64 install. (I dd this in an attempt to fix the 800+MB of file size that is added to my drive after installing 30 or so small windows updates.) for aviv00's, the program (whereisit) wasn't allowed to delete any of the files, even though I gave the command prompt commands and they executed successfully. for winsxslite, phase 1 didn't seem to work (kept saying "could not find file "c:\""), and while phase 2 scan seemed to work (it said it would change 800-900MB of stuff I think), it was let with some files that couldn't be reverted, and couldn't be replaced. If a reschedule was executed, then absolutely everything fubars up (almost no executable file will run in windows anymore). Even ignoring the few files it left stuck, the windows directory wasn't any smaller after the change. In fact, it was actually a bit larger. I am aware that these are both rather old, but have not heard of alternatives. I thought I'd let people know that this didn't work for me, and very likely wouldn't work for you (unless something is pointed out that i should do different of course).
  2. I remember Recoil. It could have been a much better game than it was, but it was still a great game. I remember it was one of the first games I played with my first 3D video card (which it came with). I loved the graphics and was surprised how fast it ran. I cannot say I've heard of any games similar to it recently though.
  3. I assume someone knows the answer to this... seems pretty straightforward. Maybe I should post in a different forum section?
  4. I don't know if this is the best place to post about this, but it seems like at least a decent spot. So I recently made a few of my own slimmed windows 7 versions various ways, and most recently did this one: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/137765-windows-7-rtm-32-64-bit-updated/ (7elite64, slightly modified) (I also tried dead0's but ran into problems; Quite strange IMO) It was 4.8GB installed, which is satisfactory for me. I then installed 35 of the critical windows updates - none for IE8, all of the bugfixes, all of the dotNET ones, then just a handful of others (DST or something, none of the reliability ones) The download size was like 35MB maybe. After installation of the updates, my windows size became 5.6 GB. That's 800MBs from windows updates.... (and not even all of them) I was wondering, does slipstreaming these updates change that amount of space dramatically? by how much? Most importantly, is there a way to shrink the windows folder after the updates are applied on an installed system?
  5. Thanks for this info. I thought Internet explorer could be removed with vlite, but I suppose it cannot without doing more advanced things. I see there's 2-3 packages that are available to remove using dism, perhaps that is the way to remove it, the troubleshooters one? the optional one? or both? (and probably NOT the HTML engine one though right?)
  6. Really? (or is this specific to 7lite but not vlite? because vlite says it removes the indexing) Also, problems occur if UPNP is not installed? How is it important to have if many people just end up disabling it when it is installed? Also Windows Image Acquisition isn't on your list. AFAIK it should be under either "do not remove" or "critical component".
