nLite 1.4.9.1 - Honey Turbo 9.1

425 posts in this topic

I think you also need to take into consideration what theme you have selected. I personally have rewritten the luna and windows classic themes, copied by $oem folders, so that no sound events exist at all.

There's a lot of different things to fully be able to have no sounds as default.

But a good start would be this as a registry file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents]

And you also need to add for default user and other users, i dont think there's a local machine location for it, tho i havent checked.

Another thing I discovered about service dependencies:

WIA (stisvc) says it depends on Shell Hardware Detection (ShellHWDetection) and nLite hides it in compatibility mode.

If ShellHWDetection is removed, stisvc doesn't start.

But if ShellHWDetection is deleted from the registry multi-string: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\stisvc\DependOnService , stisvc works fine.

Tested on a laptop with built in webcam. Everything works.

Of course, it may be different for different devices/functionality.

This isn't going to sound logical, but then again its windows. The reason as far as i see it , why dependency between shellhwdetection and windows image acquisition exists, is to have a message sent through any scanning apps that scanning is started. You know sort of like shellhwdetection acting as a messenger. To be short. There's very few dependencies that can't be deleted and things will still work. I'd leave things like ipv6 and other network things well alone though.

GrofLuigi : Just add this to your unattended installation to automate it :

reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\stisvc /v DependOnService /t REG_MULTI_SZ /d RpcSs /f

This will force overwrite the key, should work just fine.

I'm currently checking into whats left over that nlite doesnt remove.

Source xp x64 sp2, and i find things like dhcpssvc.dll, dhcpsnap.dll (dhcp server/snapin managment), and stuff like plotter.dll, plotui.dll which must be like ancient files. I also dont think changer.sys (hardware capability of automatically changing removable media i guess), is a very commonly actually used. Also dvdplay.exe only starts windows media player 11, i dont need another exe to start the actual program.

In addition to this i would also like to request to be able to keep general printer driver, such as is in vlite program.

Currently i remove all drivers now and set this in keep files:

locale.gpd

p6disp.gpd

p6font.gpd

pcl4res.dll

pcl5eres.dll

pcl5ures.dll

pclxl.dll

pclxl.gpd

pjl.gpd

stddtype.gdl

stdnames.gpd

stdschem.gdl

stdschmx.gdl

ttfsub.gpd

unidrv.dll

unidrv.hlp

unidrvui.dll

unires.dll

pjlmon.dll

Which allows me to install my usb printer (which sucks btw).

Also i think its kind of retarded that .mht file support is lost because one decide to delete outlook express, when the two does not have anything directly to do with each other. So i also add

msoert2.dll

to keep files, i havent tested with removal of OE yet (i wrote a batch instead), but hopefully it works.

That is that "Keep Files" overrule component selections of removal.

More over on ancient files, pentnt.exe (Pentium Floating Point Divide Error Utility 5.2.3790.0 ) isnt really needed unless well, one have a pentium cpu. Never had one so i cant tell anyway.

Also a bit of a funny one is wowexec.exe , now afaik this is 16bit emulation, no it aint the x32 wow. x64 doesnt support 16bit in the first place. One can run some installers written in 16bit but really 64bit os, well, i dont see much use for it.

More on 16bit, im not sure if winspool.exe is needed (Windows 16-bit WOW Psuedo Printer Driver (loaded as WINSPOOL.DRV), winspool.drv is a file of its own so dont be fooled by the description.

I was mentioning this back in may with more files, all of which i have tested to remove, but i didnt get a reply on the subject.

Love this program, works perfect - always. Thanks Nuhi!

One thing I would like very much is using wildcards when selecting addons. That way you could just put addons in folder(s), and use the same preset....

It was a request sometime ago, but it has not been implemented...(?) http://www.msfn.org/board/nlite-v101-hotfi...amp;hl=wildcard

Edit: It would be nice if nLite remembered last used addon folder too ;-)

You already can do that.

BIG list :D

Q: no option to remove compmgmt.msc (i really dont need this)

A: this is very sensitive component! DO NOT remove it, because it can cause alot problems! for example , yesterday I found, that broken compmgmt.msc crashed .NET framework software with serious error code.

Q: no option to remove dvdplay.exe (im not sure if this got added into my cd or what... )

A: try to remove this file in remove box. but be carefull if You use Windows Media Player to open DVD Video Disc.

Q: i removed all languages, and still alot of code page files/keys are kept, and there are *.nls, kanji_1.uce, korean.uce etc. files

A: I'll try to find solution for this

Q: what is wpa.dbl file?

A: Windows Product Activation Database file. It stores information about Your computer activation status and hardware changes at each logon.

Q: what are .mui files? i see a folder scripting but i disabled/removed all scripting.

A: I'm not 100% sure, but I think these files is for Multilingual User Interface. If You use only Windows English Interface, it's useless

Q: do we really need the system folder with only a winspool.drv? (is this from 16 bit support, then its not removed?)

A: if You use printer, better leave this file as is. Every printer - even oldest and even supermodern notyetreleased printer can ask this file to work correctly.

Q: no option to remove Themes service.

A: There is option to remove it. But removal of THEMES SERVICE REALLY SLOWS EVERY PC!!!!! If You simply disable this service, it's OK!

Q: no option to disable visual styles applied on the gui

A: I saw somewhere in this forum XP visual style transformation to WIN2000 style.

Q: no option to remove the lastgood state bit thingy..

A: this is very very useful thingy, if Your XP does not start after broken or incompatible driver installed!

Hope it will help You! :):hello:

A: Windows Product Activation Database file. It stores information about Your computer activation status and hardware changes at each logon.

Q: what are .mui files? i see a folder scripting but i disabled/removed all scripting.

so i see lots of .mui files laying around my OS, there sohuld be an option to remove them

Q: do we really need the system folder with only a winspool.drv? (is this from 16 bit support, then its not removed?)

A: if You use printer, better leave this file as is. Every printer - even oldest and even supermodern notyetreleased printer can ask this file to work correctly.

printer support and 16 bit support are both removed ... so i geuss i dont need it.

Q: no option to remove Themes service.

A: There is option to remove it. But removal of THEMES SERVICE REALLY SLOWS EVERY PC!!!!! If You simply disable this service, it's OK!

Q: no option to disable visual styles applied on the gui

A: I saw somewhere in this forum XP visual style transformation to WIN2000 style.

hmm maybe not clear enough. i was talking about the option in the performance-> visual effects

A: this is very very useful thingy, if Your XP does not start after broken or incompatible driver installed!

i have absolutly no need for this...

Try making just the ISO with nLite, then use a mainstream disc burning application (like Nero, Roxio, Ashampoo etc.) to burn the image.

Hi ,

Thank's for your answer .

Dispate , that's what I have done with "cdburnerxp" .

If the possibility to burn the media is wrong (with nLite) , put it off .

First of all thank you big time nuhi for your work. nLite is great. I'm using it for my windows XP pro x86 cd.

Second I have a few remarks :whistle:

I'm one of those guys that only use classic start menu. But for some reason some of the tweaks don't work properly.

- display administrative tools in start menu (administrative tools are diplayed but in classic start menu->customize this option is not checked. after closing the customization of classic start menu or rebooting the computer the tool disapears from start menu)

- use small icons

- disable personalized menu

Third I would like to kindly request additional tweaks:

- autohide taskbar option and show quick launch

- an option for cpl->system->performance settings->adjust for best performance

Thank you in advance and once again for your devotion to this project.

Would anyone know why setup requires nowadays net.exe?

This must be some hotfix introduced after October.

I get error msg "Unable to execute file: net

ShellExecuteEx failed; code 2"

Thanks,

It was this one. Still, it would be interesting to know what has changed, since I haven't changed anything else than upgraded the post-SP3 update pack and some of the addons...

A question about integration :

I want to integrate IE7, WMP11, and all the subsequent hotfixes (which include some WMP11 & IE7 updates) into XP SP3 installation.

1.I start nlite - put all in the list for updating source installation files.

2.Program starts integrating and asks for WMP11 slipstreamer i download it and put .exe file in the nlite root folder, program continues and everything finishes OK.

However I noticed that the WMP slipstreamer has a function to slipstream WMP hotfixes as well.

So my questions are :

1. Were all WMP hotfixes integrated into installtion, althought they were added to be integrated via nlite and not using WMP slipstreamer

2. Are IE7 & WMP11 and all later updates for them really integrated into installation, and not just added to be installed via svpack or some other method in later stage of installtion

Great program...great work...great man! :)

Svaka čast!

Re Angelico Payne

After completion of nLite look in the directory /1386/SVCPACK

Files not integrated you will find in their original state.

It is possible to integrate WMP 11 and IE7 in your source and after that

to use nLite, use Google to find the program HFSLIP.

You have to add into HFSLIP the file "HFSLIP_POST_getnewfiles_v3.cmd"

and use the resulting file NEWBIN.TXT to add to the keepbox of nLite

the relevant files. You can use Notepad to edit LastSession.ini.

If i select in nLite to remove Drivers like the Toshiba driver then nLite doesn't remove it from the TXTSETUP.SIF file because of that i see always in the TXTMODE if Windows XP loads the Driver that the Toshiba driver gets loaded.

I think nLite removes only the Driver files but not the text in files like TXTSETUP.SIF that points to the driver.

I have a simple suggestion.

The [Hotfixes] section of the profile contains file names with full path. This makes it impossible to transfer your work to another computer. How about using path relative to working directory?

Lets say on one PC we have C:\NLite\Build\ as working directory. Then for C:\NLite\KBs\WindowsXP-KB892130-ENU-x86.exe file it will be:

[Hotfixes]

..\KBs\WindowsXP-KB892130-ENU-x86.exe

And we'll be able to move entire thing to different PC with output directories like:

D:\Slipstream\XP32\ISOFull\

D:\Slipstream\XP32\ISOLight\

as soon as we place KBs like this:

D:\Slipstream\XP32\KBs\WindowsXP-KB892130-ENU-x86.exe
