hi there,
I still met errors when inserting several updates, attached log file.
i am using win7 x86 enterprise, 7Customizer_0.5.0a

one suggest, is possible that you can print all your commands such as how to use imagex, dism in some kind of log file, i guest your application is only a wrapper, and the application is using kernel tools like imagex, dism and so on. however, i have to say, it's a nice wrapper.

@Blue: Thanks for the update!

I tested it and it works fine now.

There are only two more things:
First, the sorting of the components is not correct (I mentioned it in my post above).
Second, the current implementation does not handle different languages/localizations very well (see this post for a little explanation).

Thanks for the great work!!


[Edit: The second point is actually no issue. Everything should work just fine. Please ignore it]

Thanks for this since it looks like RT Lite is not being supported anymore.

Blue,

First of all, thanks so much for this product. I, and the rest of the world, look forward to this becoming a fully-functional replacement for vLite.

Some changes that I would like to see:

1) For the unattended tab, have the "Time and Currency" option default to "English (United States)" instead of "Afrikaans (South Africa)".
2) For the unattended tab, have the "Keyboard Input" option default to "US" instead of "Albanian".
3) For the tweaks tab, under taskbar, add "Always show all icons and notifications in the taskbar". The associated registry key is: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\EnableAutoTray=0
4) Add some sort of option where we can give the installation manual registry tweaks via a .reg file, like nLite.

Some issues that I am having:

1) The unattended file that 7Customizer is creating is bugged - it tells me that my (legitimate) CD-key is wrong and the setup automatically exits.
2) There is an issue with integrating Windows6.1-KB2479943-x64-RC. 7Customizer does not report any integration errors, but Windows Update still reports as needing the update.
3) There is an issue with integrating Windows6.1-KB2533552-x64. 7Customizer does not report any integration errors, but Windows Update still reports as needing the update.

Thanks again.

Great product!

This all in according to testing install in VirtualBox (latest version).

I successfully integrated 321 unique (!!!) )updates for windows 7 x64 sp1. It only couldnt properly fix kb890830 (malicious software removal tool) which is no biggie, but kb253352 (for enable future updates) also still shows up on windows update.

The integration procedure in itself went on without stopping so it created everything just fine on that regard.

Feature request:
#1
On a sidenote, a tweak to disable the "http://windows.micro...-choice-update" kb976002 would be welcome. As this KB does integrate it produces the "select browser" thingie on first login which is rather annoying.
#2
Select custom .reg file for registry import and or .bat, batch file to run after first login (or before for that matter(both preferable-but if choose- after login would be sweet).

@darkSoul

Please Read the first page about this topic: How to use 7Customizer?

4. Important notes for using 7Customizer:

1. Make sure you have enough free space (at least 5 GB of free space is recommended) in your drive where 7Customizer is located (7Customizer will warn you if the drive does not have sufficient space)

2. It is highly recommended to run the program in a folder that does not have white spaces for example, c:\7Customizer\.

3. It is highly recommended to place your installation source in a directory that does not have white spaces for example, c:\win7.

4. When choosing the path for ImageX and DISM, make sure you choose the same exe architecture (x86 or amd64) as your Windows.<BR itxtNodeId="479">eg when using Windows 7 x64 choose the ImageX located in amd64 inside the WAIK installation.

5. Always test the result in a virtual machine first (VirtualBox, VMware player or VirtualPc).

6. It is highly recommended to use 7Customizer on an unmodified (clean,untouched .. etc) windows installation source.

7. It is highly recommended to place 7Customizer in the root folder (e.g D:\7customizer). It is not recommended to place 7Customizer in your home directory folders (e.g. Documents,Desktop,... etc).


You can also change inside the bootorder.txt the line:

boot\fr-fr\bootsect.exe.mui (with your language!)

I hope you plan to fix that in the future :)

BTW: I moved 7Customizer to the root, and I still get those errors.

Don't worry about the bootorder.txt, it's not an issue, but you can make the change if you want!

You can remove that key inside the registry:

Remove_Wim.reg
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WIMMount\Mounted Images]

Remove all the files and folders "7Customizer_0.5.0a". Expand a new time 7Customizer_0.5.0a.rar at the root of your HDD, and try again!

Yes you can. See my example and test here:

http://www.msfn.org/...post__p__936751

You need to install WAIK 3.0 for Windows 7 first!

i uploaded the exe to virustotal website and no virus were found : http://www.virustota...a2b8-1321026689

for the tool itself , i found that some services that i turned to manual are set to automatic , i uploaded some captures : http://imgur.com/a/UbEnv
the first is showing my selection of services , then delayed ...
then 3 screens of the result in the installed windows7 ultimate .

the number 4 is showing that power can not be delayed , the last image is about the IKE and Auth IPs that is going back to automatic after reboot even if i had set it to manual

Solved! :)

Now with Norton Security to launch 7Customizer, I need to verify approval and after the validation I must accept as user and 7Customizer works fine!
It wasn't like this before!
Regards

7Customizer_0.5.0c

*Edit:
@blue4603
When I extract the file 7Cutomizer_0.5.0c.rar; I see a log.txt file inside the folder: C:\7Customizer_0.5.0c\work!
It seems that you forgot to delete this file!

For users, at this time, simply remove this file before launching 7Customizer!

Has anyone had any luck getting this to work with an upgrade disc? That's the only install cd I have.
Thanks
Mike


I now have an upgrade disc and I will try to customize it and report back to you.

Regards


Were you or anyone else able to get this to work with an upgrade version of Windows 7?
Thanks

I don't understand why when I create my Autounattend.xml file with 7Customizer, even if I choose my custom local settings fr-FR , I have:

7Customizer must be approved by Norton Security and blue4603 can send a "dispute" to Symantec to check his software, like I made with 7zip SFX Maker 3.2.exe.

Because now 7Customizer is always removed when I launch the software!!!!!!!!

http://community.nor...ion/td-p/232155


Here is the answer I received about 7zip SFX Maker 3.2.exe

The Symantec Insight Dispute team has reviewed your recent submission to the Insight Dispute Submission form Webpage form "7zip SFX Maker 3.2." In light of further investigation and analysis Symantec is happy to remove this detection from within its products. Please ensure that your machine reflects the change by running LiveUpdate.

Decisions made by Symantec are subject to change if alterations to the Software are made over time or as classification criteria and/or the policy employed by Symantec changes over time to address the evolving landscape.

Sincerely,

Symantec Insight Dispute Team


Now this sofware is approved by Symantec....

Cheers

I used the lastest possible version and created an ISO without problems. Used every option beside unattended. It installs everything quite nice and in the end (after restart, 99%) it shows an error that "Windows cannot configure one or more components." and the installation stops. What did I do wrong?
