Hi,

if I have a component not wanted, & I know its INF file, what should I do to be able to delete it from the Installation CD?

You have to copy "*.inf" and extract every "*.in_" to some dir.
Then do the text search in them to see which one of your inf's is needed and what inf entry.
For example if there is "yourfile.inf, defaultinstall" in some of the files
you need to leave that entry in your inf.
(for example if it is "defaultinstall")

[version]
signature="$WINDOWS NT$"
LayoutFile=layout.inf
[defaultinstall]

(delete everithing below that line)

You can see in that inf which files can be deleted.

well extract those in_'s to inf first as said
and go to search in xp and on the "A Word or phrase in the file" put whatever u wanna remove. i'm sure this method works if u don't want to use jdeboeck's. Though I highly recommend his batches :)
if u want to leave certain games u need to modify the games.inf and the batches as well.. good luck

aw also nothing important but I got used to see Reducing the CD size for gosh's method. this one tricked me :rolleyes:
