All my files inc your program are in the root of my "C" drive.

Then I suggest you wait for the next release.

Hi Blue,
I've been using your tool very successfully.
One thing I would really like is a command line interface so I can apply updates from a batch file, perhaps even specify a folder where update files are (this would be useful in the GUI too).
Do you want logs from successful integrations? I am at work at the moment but can post logs later if you wish.

Thanks,
Rich

Thanks Rich for the feedback. Glad it worked for you.
Yes it would be great if you post the log, if you do not mind. Successful logs will clear some of the doubts for me.

Regarding your suggestion, this could be developed later. Because this is like a bonus feature not an essential one.

Blue, it seems the problem with the folder name is not fixed.

I changed the folder where my source file are kept from 'win' to 'win7 pro' then i recieved this error.

Renamed the source folder back to 'win'. An it works fine :rolleyes:
I'll upload a successful.log as well in a mo

**EDIT**
When I click 'Skip creating user' the username an password box highlights. It should be the other way around ;-)

Suggestion -
in the apply windows, any chance there can be a progress bar added or text box with a log of whats happening?

Here is the sucess log -

No this is the way it should. When you skip user creation, you create a user to autologon to the system. Also, I could not find a way to autologon as administrator .

It is already showing you the progress in the command window.

Thanks for the feedback.

I understand you want to get it more stable etc first, just thought i'd share my views seeing as it does exactly what I want, and it works, already :thumbup
I have attached my successful log.

Thanks again,
Rich

Look not disputing the authenticity of Richy's log. though isn't a whole lot different to mine when in fact did not integrate any hotfixes correctly @ all?

Thanks man for the advice and the feedback.

I requested that because when people provide feedback, it motivates you. Now, I am dealing with simple features (adding updates, languages ..etc). Later on it will become harder and it will needs more people feedback. If people provide more feedback, this will help me producing better client and it will help them getting an error free toll with more features.

Glad 7Customizer worked for you and I appreciate your cooperation and enthusiasm.

Nice work you're doing blue :thumbup


I currently use this guide HERE, to slim down windows 7

How will the removal components part in your program work ? Will it it use dism/imagex commands like on the link above but with a GUI ?

Thanks for the link.
yes it will use imagex an dism of course and with a GUI. It will be similar to vlite. However, removing components will come later. The focus now is on debugging errors and adding drivers and applications. Then, I think tweaks will come. After that the removing components part. That is my plan.

Thanks for the feedback.

You seem to use an older version. Grab the latest and post your logs.

@MAVERICKS CHOICE
Could you use the dism located inside x8s\servicing and see if it works?. If not I will release a minor update that will give additional information

From your log, I see that the size of the image is 1359 MB. Did you make changes to it before? like slimming it down?
What is the image you are working on? Does it have all the five editions or not? If yes what edition you chose?. I think I need to add these info th the log

which version of WAIK are you using? vista sp1 or 7?
im running vista sp1 WAIK (7 WAIK gave issues with package removal... and is suggestet here). im asking because there is no dism.exe in any of the subfolders of c:\prog files\waik\tools :wacko:

Then I will release a minor update shortly. It will give us more details.

@burn
I think it is better to use WAIK 7 when working with 7 images. I do not think that dism is included in WAIK for vista (not sure).

Which error? I think you have the same problem as MAVERICKS CHOICE so wait a little and I will release a minor update and we will solve your problem.

Before you try the iso, you should check the autounattend.xml to see if it has the needed info.

Could you post your autounattend.xml
