7Customizer - a Windows 7 Customization and Deployment tool

1,630 posts in this topic

Why are you using it in VirtualBox? I don't remember exactly how it works but isn't VirtualBox supposed to operate off a sandboxed virtual disk? How are you accessing your iso from it?

Hello, I use virtualized Win7 in VirtualBox, beacuse I have XP on my machine (and that is not compatible with 7customizer). No matter where the iso is located (guest disk or mounted machine disk) it never change it. And yes VirtualBox = sophisticated Sandbox:)

I've got the crash bug when adding multiple update .msu files. I'm using version 0.5.0c on Win7 SP1 x64. I tried adding the .msu files one at a time, but it only allows one file period. Adding a second file causes the same crash.

Guys,

Can You tell me if i integrate windows .msu updates using 7customizer , will they be visible in control panel -> programs and features --> "show installed updates" ? (or should be visible) I am curious if 7cusotmizer uses diffrent integration method than RT7lite . When i use RT7 lite 1.7 version then updates are lsiten in "installed updates" list in control panel. Im curious if its the same with 7 customizer.

Hello Oh learned ones

My source copy of Win7 is Home Premium x386 and x64. It is also the upgrade version not the full version.

When I try to run 7 customizer, I can add all the files required until I try to add the Windows installation source. When I browse to the location it is at on my disk and insert the path, the utility crashes and you get the following error which I have attached.

I also cannot locate the log file.

Any help would be appreciated

Select correctly the ImageX.exe and DISM.exe paths!

However, I don't know if you can use 7Customizer with an upgrade Windows 7 Home version x86/x64 !

Try to use the correct paths and let us know!

Cheers

I DLed the .exe files but something tells me that is incorrect.

Oh I see. Well I can manually slipstream it.

No, you don't need! You can download the full Windows 7 SP1 MSDN (SP1 already integrated) using the link given above!

But, I don't think the upgraded Windows 7 key will match an original Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium!

Thanks to let us know.

This is a win7 pro version. I don't thimk it will work with my home premium key but I will try. It is possible but if I do recall correctly the version you get is determined by the key anyway. all flavors of win7 are on the disk. I know that is the way Vista was setup.

DLing both ver of it now.

I can still manually slipstream if this doesn't work.

Just finished installing the newly created iso on VMWare Player. It installed without any errors and exactly as I set it up.

My next step is to play with removing some stuff and seeing how that goes.

It worked as well as nlite does for XP.

Hello grabben! Yes, this project seems dead!

You can try this awesome program:

Win Toolkit v1.4.1.14

Cheers and regards

Unfortunate:/

I was looking forward to see this project getting updated, developing into the best software.

Yea, i hope blue can answer this question, i asked at MDL forum as well.. but no reply there yet..

dism /logpath: gives alot of text that doesnt make a lot of sense to us though, but ">> .log" just writes the whole process into a textfile..

wellwell its not a big issue.

Im also using options to set keyboardlayout but hmm

I've found (French site) an explanation about your question - blinking cursor:

When you want creating a text file, like : >> %work%\Logs\LP.log

That means that the text were displayed inside the file text and not inside the command promt!

It is the reason you have a blinking cursor! :rolleyes:

I already know that and its pretty obvious.. but i want it to show in the prompt and write to logfile, not sure if thats doable?

Yes, that is doable:

Is there a way to change the default location for users, programs, programs(x86), and maybe program data directories from C:\ to D:\?

Thanks
