Help! :(


What kind of errors did you get running removal.bat?

Well, considering I am running it on an Italian release and that I am not including languages, updates & drivers I get missing packages errors when running the packages and cleanup steps.
I tried to cleanup a little bit the batch, but if I will get no support into that I am definitely going to give up and use another better explained and better working method. :hello:


Judging by your intent and Jeronimo's refusal to help, I recommend Liquid's guide. His is very detailed and even if you make a mistake following his work, you can quickly isolate what and where you went wrong.

If you'd like further help, let me know.

I also maintain a guide that now has a semi-gui. If you are a noob modding x86, it's pretty solid. I say x86 cuz some x64 users are incompatible with the 16-bit choice.com file, so the user-selection is not gonna work. Anyway, if you want the full power of removal.bat, this is the right thread. Having a detailed guide is nice, but the cost comes down to user customizibility. The point of vLite is to customize Windows for the end-user.

If you have any errors, it will be your own fault 95% of the time.

Unless your using one of my programs, then its probably because I suck at programming :)
All my people right here, right now, dyou know what I mean?

@Rommsey: I make use of findings by other people and try to share that information here, if you look through my starter topic you will notice I do not use the word guide anywhere. I also state that I can only check the issues Cr4z33 is having when I have my own local version of Windows 7. Finally for someone with only 12 posts on this forum I think you should ease up a little, you have contributed next to nothing to this community and I suggest you adjust your tone as it is quite provoking.

rommsey- you referenced to liquids scripts and guide and its great that you and other users are finding ease of use and success in utilizing them however I must agree with jeronimo about your use of words and the message it portrays it displays a certain level of disrespect despite feelings you or others might have about any specific issues to anyone such as you stayed jeronimo and a lack of assistance so to speak what I think needs to be mentioned here is that without jeronimo dead sausagehack and everyone else that has provided time effort trial and error to make lite windows a success liquids guide and scripts would not be what they are everyone has their own preferences and jeronimo has put just as much time and effort into his work if not more so than liquid has himself so a friendly note to all please keep more negative comments to private messages or refrain from them altogether everyone deserves credit not one or all let's try to keep peace and all work together to create a beautiful work of art out of this project we all have similar goals just personal methods of acheiving results

I found out a quick solution to the update function if youre interested:

%dism% /Image:"%mount%" /Add-Package /PackagePath:"%updateloc%"

here it would take all packages inside the update folder and add them. Couldn't get the other command to work, but this works perfect for me.
Try it out, i think u will like it.
But I dont think u can seperate .msu, .exe, .msi, .cab here. but it shouldn't matter as all updates should only be in this folder and nothing else really as said in the guide.

Thanks a lot, this did the trick for me!

It seems it only integrates msu updates, but that is fine, I only have 4 updates that can't be integrated, msi, cab, and exe. They're all MS updates though.

@franner: batch-file updated
@dridzz: You are using these commands by hand, I think what you should do is replace %%i by %i (at least twice!) in each "for-loop". When using it in a batch file it needs to be %%i, when manually entered on the prompt %i. Using rd on wildcards does not work, that is why I created a for-loop in the first place.

Beside 1 issue I had with my batch-file I have had another go on the final version of Home Premium (Dutch) I bought 2 days ago. I do need to perform the installation 1 final time, but it seems to work great. ISO is a bit, smaller but the wim-file is abou the same size.

Hi,
I have a question regarding some of the steps:

4. Packages removal (removal.bat packages; 3/4: removal.bat pre)
5. vLite (Component removal only)
6. Cleanup of files and folders (removal.bat cleanup)
7. Integrate Drivers (removal.bat drivers; 6/7: (removal.bat post)


In step 4, I run removal.bat packages. What does the 3/4: removal.bat pre mean? Do I run that directly after/before?

In step 7, I Integrate Drivers. What does 6/7: (removal.bat post) mean?

Also, can I use Vlite to integrate drivers instead?

Thx.

@theKramer: it means that 'if you want to do step 3+4 in one go, use the command removal pre'.

I just gave this a go with no changes (except for paths) to removal.bat and the vlite preset slightly changed (see below). I saw many of the components in this preset of yours that I couldn't remove without an error msg in the setup with just using vLite. What makes it work in your solution then?

Anywayz, I got the error I suspected while doing the setup: corrupted installation image. What the hell went wrong?

vLite changes:
Added for removal:
Character Map
Floppy Disk Support
Shell event sounds
Beep
(have never added those, never gave me problems before)

Removed from preset, so still in image:
Modem Support
Printer Support
TV Tuner support
Windows Portable Devices
Windows Media Player
File and printer sharing (Server)
Network Explorer
Remote Desktop and Assistance
Remote Desktop Client
DHCP
DNS Client
Network Access Protection Agent
Network List Service
Network Location Awareness (NLA)
Remote Access Auto Connection Manager
Remote Access Connection Manager
Routing and Remote Access
Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol (SSTP)
Task Scheduler
TCP/IP NetBios Helper
Telephony
User-mode Driver Framework
Volume Shadow Copy
WebDAV (WebClient)

@Guillaume: I havent gotten as far as creating the DVD yet as I get some errors in the cleanup phase (Step 6)

I have attached all the files. If anyone can give me any guidance, that would be great :blushing:

Just so you know that I successfully created a smoothly running installation (be it after about 6 trials). I attached the batch and the vLite .ini.

I went trough all this Guide and it all worked well but one thing does bother me...

none of the remove.bat are working properly..I always get an error "access denied" at every file the batch want to remove from the mounted image.
I tried JJ's DISM Tool and GImageX Tool both with write access on the Image but I just dont get the write/delete access...any ideas?
Also Im unable to remove Files in the image by hand (have got admin rights)

Removing Packages with DISM works

Running Win7 64bit and slipstreaming a Win7 64bit Pro Version.

I think I got the same error also. Try this:
http://www.askvg.com...-windows-vista/

When you have imported the reg file, right click on your mounted folder and click "Take ownership". You may have to restart the computer. As far as I can remember, that worked for me.

What size did you get it down to? I can only ever get it down to about 1.8GB.
Were you able to remove IE as well?
Cheers

Install.wim is 1.74GB. Had no intention of removing IE8.

Thank you for the Reg file..thanks to this I could get closer to my wanted result but
Hmm thats weird
when I execute the batch file normaly or with admin rights I get the same 2 types of errors as before
when I go into the folder and search for the files that are listed in the batch file I can remove them manually
Of course I could remove all files by hand now but that would be alot of work and wasted time...
*sigh* why doesnt those batch files work properly ?
:(

Sorry if I am repeating what you said, but did you run the command prompt with Admin rights?

what cleanup phase do u mean?


1 delete packages with DISM
2 nlited components and so on
3 deleted files via batch file
(now it worked btw had to take over ownership in all folders manually, remount the wim file and then run the bat file again)
4 burn iso

but im still at step 3 so far
