This thread is essentially a novice-friendly guide to modify Windows 7. Component removal is the central focus, but the user can customize a Windows 7 installation disk with language packs, updates, addons, tweaks, and much more. This is a semi-GUI program, meaning that you do not have to type in lines of code at a DOS prompt. Just run the program (Vista/7 users: Run as Administrator) and follow the prompts.
I am attaching a README for specific details. For in-depth details, read Jeronimo's thread about removal.bat
The source code is available, do whatever you want I'm too lazy to write a license... Consider it open source.
Questions? Just ask in this thread and I'll try to get it answered
UPDATE: 0.2 -- Some x64 users were having problems with the CHOICE.COM user-selection engine. This update fixes that. The included 7Slimmer.ZIP file has both the 32-Bit and 64-Bit version. 32-Bit also gets a little cleaner code.
UPDATE: 7Slimmer MMX -- 2010 is here! The UI is refreshed, and some functions like cleanup and remove packages are a lot faster. The 32-Bit and 64-Bit versions are combined into one EXE file - still no need to install anything. 'MMX' is Roman Numeral for 2010 if you didn't know
UPDATE: 7Slimmer MMX-R2 -- Final version for now, cleaned code and made the program compatible with EVERY Windows NT-based OS. Before, you had to be on Windows 7 exclusively (or download a lot of extra files).
I have made a video tutorial for anyone interested. Click Here!
