vLite and Windows 7

Recommended Posts

I apologize if this is not in the appropriate forum.

I am trying to use vLite on Windows 7, but I receive:


Length cannot be less than zero.
Parameter name: length.
See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

I also apologize for the long post.

Short answer - vLite will work on Win7 RTM but it will error and not work on Win7 SP1 (as integrated by MS).

Longer answer - It can be made to work on Win 7 SP1, IF you make your own Win7 SP1 in a certain way, but it's not for the faint of heart. You can do it, using freely available tools, but it's not just a click here and here and then you're done. I have repeated the simplified instructions, originally posted by trala, here - http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/139874-guide-win7server-sp1-removal-with-vlite-and-rt-lite/page__view__findpost__p__998312, but I have not had anyone else admit they were successful following them. If you're willing to work through the issues, perhaps you would then be willing to write a better tutorial that others could follow?

Cheers and Regards
