In fact I have seen, in the Microsoft web site, that we can install (and slipstream) the SP3 only on a XP SP1a or a XP SP2, Not on SP0, SP1.

nLite should show an error in this case

With sfc on I get complaints from Windows sfc that essential files have been replaced. Should I change the option to sfc off?

Security Center cannot start, I think because Windows Management Instrumentation service is missing.

In Tweaks:
Explorer-Remove arrows shortcuts does not work
Speed-Classic Windows maps does not work

I have Windows XP SP3 Dutch with the latest Nlite.

[quote]jmbattle, long time no read.[/quote]
A long time indeed - how time flies! ;)
[quote]Network Connection - Do you want network support to be removed or it is like your LAN is set by DHCP and you don't need any access to the config?[/quote]
Well, this system is not connected to a network, hence why I disable the service. All I require is the bare minimum to get online using my cable modem and DHCP (addition components such as file/print sharing etc. are not even installed), thus I am wondering if this service can also be removed?
[quote]Shell HW - part of Shell Services, already removable, cant be separated from other 2 in the same component.[/quote]
Ah, I see, and therefore required for Themes support, yes?
[quote]Telephony - I remember removal of this broke down a lot of network dlls so it can go under the same as NetConn[/quote]
Again, I have disabled this service and am still able to get online, so perhaps it is unnecessary for this system?
[quote]App management - aka Add/Remove programs. It is needed, for most[/quote]
I have disabled this service, yet am still able to open the Add/Remove Programs control panel applet, so perhaps it is not required after all?
Even if the service is required for the applet to run, could the user not use a freeware/shareware alternative?
[quote]Crypto - who knows, you never know :)[/quote]
Yes, I disabled this service and restarted. Everything is fine at bootup, however opening the Hardware Devices list and double clicking on a component sets the service back to Manual and starts it automatically. Disabling and stopping the service, then attempting to double click a hardware component for a second time will still displays the information, yet does not change the service settings. Who knows - perhaps it can be removed too? ;)
[quote]HID - usb, mouse, keyboard thingies[/quote]
Again, disabled here, the service does not appear to have been started, yet my USB mouse is working fine. Unnecessary?
[quote]Spooler - Printer Support[/quote]
Okay, I shall keep it for PDF output.
[quote]Sec Acc Mng - Don't know[/quote]
Okay, well let's try getting rid of it, then seeing what happens. ;)
[quote]Installer - needed, for most[/quote]
Agreed. Third party installer engines such as NSIS appear to be unaffected, however InstallShield and .MSI stuff requires this service.
[quote]So only possibility would be Network Support and see what is Crypto and Secc Acc Mng. Not much fun, could be that all 3 are needed.[/quote]
Well, if you do not have any further components planned for removal in 1.4.6, please consider adding these as 'experimentals' ;)

Keep up the great work!

JM, why not disable the services vi an nlite customization to see what happens.

newsposter, actually, with the exception of 'Windows Installer' I have disabled all of the remaining unused services whilst maintaining the required functionality.

After a little research, it would appear that the Human Interface Device Access service is only necessary in order to control additional buttons found on multimedia keyboards and other peripherals such as printers/scanners. The Application Management service, on the other hand, seems to be related to deploying software across a network.

I wonder if perhaps simply disabling a service is different to removing it from the system entirely, due to possible file dependencies?

Yes, disabling a service leaves all the files on your system. Unless you are SURE (100%!) that you will NEVER need a specific service, disable it, DON'T delete it.

The hassles of trying to manuall reinstall a previously deleted service are considerable.

I have problem!
I take windows xp pro sp2, I build SP3, IE7, WMP11,
I remove not the components, necessary for me, (without them, built - in IE6, worked), all passes well, but after installation, IE7 does not work: blinks a window and it is more than anything.
Prompt, what's the matter?
Thanks for the answer!

If you have problems, always try using the latest (stable) version - nLite 1.4.5 FINAL.

Give more details about how you slipstreamed, in what order you did it and other tasks. I can't figure out what you meant - you removed components or kept all of them?

The MD5 values for ver 1.4.5 self extracting archives on the download website are wrong!
The sha-1 hash has been put instead of md5.

the correct one (i think) is MD5:77E1A435C5A8DBC75C2E10BCAC0A1F27

You are correct. Forgot to upload the new download page after silently updating the release today.

fix: SP3 issues if you just add an addon without any other component removal, options or tweaks, just addons. That would skip the automatic SP3 adjustments.
You can recognize the new release by the exe version after being installed, it should be

What exactly was the problem with slipstreaming SP3 in Vista? I added SP3 into XP (English and German versions) using 1.4.5 beta 2 in Vista x64. Both seem to at least boot properly. Will I run into problems using those CDs later?

zabardast_1, both have 1.4.5 when you run it but the exe file version is .3

Keelhaul, only problem was that the CDKey from SP2 would not be accepted. If yours works fine you'll be ok.

Hmm I haven't gotten to the point where you have to enter the key yet, maybe I should try it out...

Is it ok to re-slip the same folder with the same SP3 using the latest nLite (the one that was already slipstreamed using beta 2)?

HI :)

I found a little buggy.
If i select in nLite to remove Security Center.
But after the Windows installation the Security Center ICON is still showing in "Control Panel" -> "Category View" in Classic View it is removed.

Keelhaul, if it allows you to do it. Not recommended.

Outbreaker, I think that is hard-coded in XP. In Vista it is a reg entry.

there is a new service(s), which was just introduced in SP3, that should not be removed if you use a Wireless LAN card. When I removed this service(s), the Wireless Network Connection window would not show anything, even when the router was a few feet away. Also, Windows did not correctly detect when there was a connection to the router or not. However, you could manually connect to the router via the SSID name.

The services I am looking at:

Health Key and Certificate Management Service
Network Access Protection
Wired AutoConfig

I'm pretty sure it's the NAP service that is causing all the problems when removed, however, I'll need to create one more image to see if I can reproduce the problem....unless if someone's expertise or experience can confirm my suspision :hello:

Hi nuhi,

My brother recently killed the .net framework, just when I was going back to windows modding. No .net app works anymore.
I haven't found the alternative runtimes on you website. Where can I have them (I think I read they were not exchangeable) ?
Thanks. :)

Kirby, it could be the other two, not the NAP.
Please let me know if you find out for sure and I'll put it into the compat. But actually both of these should be in the Ethernet compat.

Camarade_Tux, don't have a link but this is good for fixing .NET

I finally fixed it the way I always did. I just needed to get used to windows again. :P

Basically the installation was completely damaged. No installer would run, uninstallation was impossible and only uninstall/repair was offered to me while a direct force reinstallation would probably have done the trick.
So after a few moments trying to go with microsoft's installers, I opened regmon, found the installers were reading HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products. I then went there with regedit and deleted all occurences of .net framework. I could at last reinstall the .net framework and two minutes later nlite was running.

When in doubt, use brute force.

(but nlite will wait for tomorrow now ;) )
