This time that I retry, my untouched dvd, it doesn't get far at all! the dism batch doesn't work- all the actions receive error 5: access is denied.

And I had problem with removex86.bat, It gave mi info "Access Denied" while removing files. So I add to your batch file a couple lines to take ownership and admin permission:

takeown /f {folder} /r /d y
icacls {folder} /grant administrators:F /T

...so as first take ownership, then permission and then remove files and folders. :thumbup

I honestly don't see how this will help me, as I didn't have this issue when I used another install source, but now I am getting the problem all of a sudden. I tried it anyway though. It took a very long time!!
One folder, "documents and settings" was NOT allowed access to change permissions.
Whether or not that was the reaon, Most (not all) of the dism batch actions failed. I think it's possible some of them succeeded last time also, but the large majority of them failed, just like now.

Why would (seemingly just) a different source cause such a huge difference?

dead0: Thank you for this guide!

If you make a guide for W7 SP1, I think it deserves a new thread.

My testing so far makes me believe that vlite doesn't work with SP1. I even tried removing Traditional Chinese only, nothing else.
I'm getting this error after I click "Install now":
"The product key entered does not match any of the windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key."

SP1 is not looking too good for the moment. always getting install errors. vlite removal does not work at all with sp1 unless you use 7 rtm with sp1 slipstreamed. the msdn version with sp1 will not work.

i was thinkin of calling it quits but i may have found a workaround...

Yeah, it is very frustrating that vLite does not work anymore.

Anyhow, your Windows 7 Ultimate x86/64 "not-so extreme" Removal necessitates GImagex and batch files to overcome the shortcoming of vLite in slimming down Windows 7. Definitely, your method really work and I am sure many of us here appreciate your effort here.

Still, have you ever thought of using RT 7 Lite to replace vLite? I mean, besides using RT 7 Lite to slim down Windows, we also use GImagex and batch files to augment the ability of RT 7 Lite. As of now, RT 7 Lite still cannot remove certain components that can easily be removed by vLite. I know that it is easier said than done. You have to modify all of your batch files to work with RT 7 Lite and it is not an easy attempt.

Well, it is just my suggestion and you make the call yourself. No worries if you choose to stick with vLite.

Nevertheless, thanks for all batch files you have shared thus far.

i just find rt7lite takes too long whereas with vlite i could do it in half the time or less. now this is partly due to rt7lite relying on waik 2.0 which is so **** slow. i still haven't given up on vlite yet :P

No problem. I see what you mean. :yes: I see that in the thread problem with Vlite 1.2 and Win7 SP1 (MSDN), many users have reported success with your method. Hopefully, whenever you are free in the future, you can update your pdf guide that unifies all of the steps needed to modify vLite to work with Windows 7 SP1 iso. Looking forward to that. Thanks.

Well, this guide was for Windows 7 RTM (no Service Pack 1). You guys should instead refer to dead0's most recent guide on Windows 7 SP1, Windows 7 Ultimate/Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP1 Batch Removal.
