Well, in my case I was reading the key from the box, so.. :)

Regarding the services, yes you are right. But having the drop-down menu appear upon clicking anywhere on the button would still be nice :P It would make sense too, because you do get the "animation" (if moving the button slightly can be called so) anyway.

Hey Blue,

great job on all the work you have done,

the integrating the oem cert is especially useful for the oem pre-activated automated installs, so could you see about adding this in for a next release?

Thanks

You know it says he will add OEMbranding in future releases right ? (if it includes certs which are copied to \system32\oem folder IDK).

ALL WHO WILL USE SWEDISH LANGUAGE!!

Important message!:

Swedish translation is not 100% complete (yet) for release 043, not sure wether blue has added some more stuff to 044).

So please feel free to translate it :) (perhaps even better than me).

I might look into these matters later but for now I will keep them as is.

As I said before, we will discuss oem cert later. OEM branding will be implemented for sure.

I only added the ability to translate the language menu in 0.4.4.

Ofcourse thats an later issue :)

Right now OEMbranding is more important obviously, the info is copied to pretty much any fold you want but to apply oemlogos, the .reg file needs to be edited aswell with the right path.

I experienced some problems with this oeminfo when working on my script :P...

Hi everyone. First of all, thank you so much for your time developing this app blue.

I was wondering, is it possible to change environment variables? Like "windows", "temp", "users" and "program files" folders to another location?

If not, can this feature be added later on?

Got rid of the 7Customizer Debug error I was getting, basically I re-made a Win7x64 ISO image with UltraISO problem solved!

I now have a flawless 7Customized ISO image of Win7 x64 Retail with the aid of Driver Magician & Windows Update downloader.

I used Novicorp WinToFlash 0.6.0005 beta which converts 7Customized images to USB stick installations as I found Microsofts USB tool wont work with customized Images of Windows lol

Credit to blue for 7customizer_0.4.2a I found this build very stable

Looking forward to future releases with added features.

Keep up the good work!

Tinkering with build 0.4.4,

Blue is there any chance you could add a remove button to both themes & wallpapers, luckily I saved my custom presets so didnt have to entirly restart from scratch.

Thanks

It does work, but not when created with 7C appearently, when i do it with DISM and deployment tool command prompt it works just fine!

(or atleast having the new iso created with my script).

What could cause the error : Root element is missing.

I want to make an unattended installation of Win7 64 bit on a 32 bit laptop. Could this be the problem ?

@jslegers

Hello.

I think you have right, the problem is that you try to make an unattended installation for Windows 7 64 bits on a 32 bits laptop. When I've tried I had the same problem. I think it's needed to have the same architecture x64 installed for make an unattended Win7 x64 and the same for x86 (32 bits).

His problem is that he picked x64 for DISM; Imagex and oscdimg when he's using an 32bit OS


OS architecture: x86
ImageX Path: C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\imagex.exe
Dism Path Selected
Dism Path: C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\Servicing\Dism.exe
Oscdimg Path Selected
oscdimg Path: C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\oscdimg.exe

On the first page:


4. When choosing the path for ImageX and DISM, make sure you choose the same exe architecture (x86 or amd64) as your Windows.
eg when using Windows 7 x64 choose the ImageX located in amd64 inside the WAIK installation

Hi Blue,

thanks for 0.4.4 with language support from Beatmaster of german win-lite forum.

I have integrated many updates again. Also many drivers and themes. All these are really integrated and I can chose my theme which I want to see.

Of course I have made it on a running 64-bit-system !So the 64-bit drivers are integrated!

I used always the same environment (always 64-bit!).

@ blue

I have one question for the integration of Wallpapers.

Is not it possible that you can replace the original wallpaper directly ?

I think that is integrating the user their own, do not need the original wallpaper.

Is this just be an idea to me.

Especially the new wallpaper then present directly after the Windows 7 installation.

Otherwise, many thanks :thumbup for the new version and the integration of languages

@ All

What do you think about it?

@jslegers

I think it's better to expand "7Customizer_0.4.4.rar" on a partition (C:\; H:\; F:\,...) and not on a temp folder.
