I can see this is a good app, but cannot get past the addon or driver integration step, finding the app wants to unmount & commit the image by itself.
Also is it normal to have to restart the app @ each stage?

you do have a folder called APPS on the root of any drive Windows will see it?
Add anything simple to a sub folder there like my Reg program Jump2reg with folder name of Jump2reg

Its simple cause its an inno setup installer
Links in my Sig

This thing is dependent on seeing the APPS folder to advance

I can see now this may be confusing and need to correct somehow

Sorry Max I'm obviously not clear with my Q's, I haven't got the APPS dir in the root though is it possible not to include installing apps, addons etc?

This is a pic of what I'm saying about APPS

If you ever figure out what we're doing here I doubt you will use anything else

Copies reg settings from currently installed Applications
Copies Files from currently installed Applications
Copies entire directories from currently installed Applications

Or uses whats stored in your APPS folder if not installed at the time

OS you on like XP?
64 bit or x86?
when it stops you must copy the error message and number

That msg basically pops up when it won't mount cause it looks for the zMountDir & "\Windows\explorer.exe"
The antivirus thing is not allways the case
I do this
Pause to see if ERROR. Copy Error and let me know

Shutdown program and delete the zMountDir and look in uadvd\sources and delete the msdtc.cmd
Restart will recreate the mount and then try again

when it pause's was there any error in the cmd window? It should pause in cmd before you get what you're showing in pics

lol when i was using drivers from my x64 Vista I watched as it installed 127 of them. So I believe it to be working. Cut that back to about 25 grabbing them with driver magician on a working Se7en

well shoot, I already made Keznews forums with a hotfile download by FreeRyde of the 6.0.0
Instead of adding a reply here saying it worked for him(which to date no one has) he goes uploading it.
6.0.1 is on the burner making that a stupid post

I want to guarantee you are getting what I release so don't download this from any of them places.
Only from my link in first post and then you know it's not messed with. I'll let you know when I upload any updates
Its Rapidshare and at about 7mb is very small so not that big a thing

I tried to play with the program but it seems like I am too dumb or something - anyway this seems to be beyond my understanding and skills.
First I wanted to create some username - huh? Then it copied the whole already copied DVD files elsewhere, restarted several times - or in fact it was doing something and then I had to start it manually again. This was about 3 times.
Then the initial screen appeared again only for me to realize I still can't do anything. There are several tick boxes which I can't tick at all. Addons works, but cannot be unticked.

I guess that's it for me, gonna wait for a program designed for idiots :)

edit: also couldn't figure out the point of 4 help buttons that give me open file dialog upon clicking on.

EDIT: username? have you ever installed a win edition? somewhere along the way it asks for a username and password

http://www.msfn.org/...ua-t138899.html above is the Help buttons' sometimes I wish there was 40 buttons to open any file i have saved for INFO pertaining to what I am thinking of

Did you copy the dvd or an iso? Once you copy the extracted dvd and restart it mounts image to setup image tools
I pause it so someone can copy errors. You have to hit enter at a Pause in the cmd window. That may happen a couple times.
You have to let it finish

Ok let me try to describe what I did in more detailed way.
I took my W7 DVD and copied it to some directory.
Then I instaleld Se7en_UA and ran it.
The only clickable button was Copy DVD, ok. I got a popup saying "add your new username here". No idea what that means. Then I was asked to locate bootmgr, so I navigated to where I copied my files to. Then all the files were copied in the directory the program was installed to and that was it. Press any key to continue. No errors though. I started it manually again, command prompt opened again, mounting files. Allright. It finished, started again, this time unmounting. What?.... mount cleanup in progress... Ok I guess? Anyway the program finally started at this point. On the top I see a line with version number of the DVD I copied, so all seems to have gone ok.
BUT I still can only click on Addons, nothing else. Everything is grayed out. If I click Addons, window appears, which makes sense :) But if I don't set anything and click ok, the checkbox next to Addons stays ticked. From now on it stays ticked and I can't change it. Interesting fact is that if I do this twice, Add drivers checkbox becomes available. At this point (and half million popups) I gave up, unable to set anything up.

Perhaps I am just missing something and probably am too used to the simple way vLite works (select what kinds of things I want to configure, specify that further, and then click apply and that's it).

@ thewalrus

What your describing is how the program works, all check boxes @ least most require propagation before it will progress. I have used the program & successfully produced a fully working W7 UA dvd. Only few problems had were unsigned drivers not injecting & Dism refusing to commit the image a few times. I put this down to permissions in W7. Good luck with it.

The program will copy a Dvd also
At some point you can vlite this thing or copy a vlited source folder. I haven't tried since getting on Win 7

Yes you must progress down the boxes 1 at a time and i know vlite was similar cause i have used it but it loads diff pages.

(and half million popups) you must have uac turned on, I disable that

But if I don't set anything and click ok, the checkbox next to Addons stays ticked. From now on it stays ticked and I can't change it.

Interesting fact is that if I do this twice, Add drivers checkbox becomes available

I'll look at that because I usually add something there like my Wallpapers

EDIT: Just started over and clicked the Addons and didn't select anything and said OK, Was ready to do Drivers when I exited.

BTW,
You have to understand I made this to work if you have XP, Vista, Se7en and diff x86/x64 on each. It took a lot of time to get this right.

So setting up Image tools is a no brainer cause each OS requires different things.

Ok then, I will have to try more and maybe get it to work.
The popups is a bit confusing I guess, I meant the interface is a little weird for me - like I said the way vLite works seems great to me, although this tool is far more advanced in terms of what you can do with it. Anyway, what I meant was - I find it confusing to click on something, be presented with options, click again, "popup" windows with some description appears, click ok, then something else... This kind of stuff. But I guess it just takes some time to get used to.

I still have some questions though:

1) What is this username thing when I copy the files? I don't get it at all.
2) How exactly does the addons tab work? It takes the stuff from current installation, ie. from the system Se7en_UA runs on?
3) Adding drivers - do I need to specify all drivers I want to integrate in one step? I assumed so and copied all my drivers (in separate folders) somewhere, then navigated Se7en_UA there. Result, it crashed without any message. Upon restarting and clicking on "list", I got error message "runtime error 339" stating that mscomctl.ocx is not correctly registered. Hmm... The program still stays loaded btw, so killing the process is necessary.

When I get past the drivers integration I will ask further...


I am sorry to ask dumb questions, but I would really like to get it to work, considering vLite being totally outdated.
