Hi All.

 

I have been using nLite version 1.4.9.1.  With this version, it cannot seem to customize the x86 or regular Programs Folder.

 

Has anything with this changed in a later version?

 

I use a dual boot XP32 and X64 installs.

 

I have customized the Windows install directories to be...

 

XP32/OS/

XP64/OS/

 

Also, TEMP folder and USERS have been subbed under their respective XP32/64 folders too (i.e. XP64/USERS/).

 

Does anyone happen to know, from experience or otherwise, if newer versions can make it possible to also plant and rename the "Program Files" folder under a directory other than the root of the installation drive?

 

So for example, I want to rename "PROGRAM FILES" to "TOOLS" and have the subsequent x86 folder appear as "TOOLS (x86)" and have this appear as a subfolder under the XP64 folder ("XP64/TOOLS/"  -and-  "XP64/TOOLS (x86)/").

 

Thanks your time in reading.

Thanks for the Quick Response.  I've already SEEN that.

 

You are neglecting to read important information for this situation.

 

DOES a newer version of nLITE support the changing of PROGRAM FILES folder path for XP64?

 

The version I use and have used totally ignores any changes to this for XP64, or otherwise still creates the default folders "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)" and/or creates the specified folders but the OS only uses the default.

 

So, I ask again....  hopefully not in vain...  does a newer version of nLite allow for the changing of the Program Files path for XP64 without incidence?

See if this is your case. Otherwise you might get a faster answer by trying it yourself as I guess very few people are using XP64 and that option.

I found this to be helpful...

I suppose I'll have to do further testing any way.

Try this:

The default folders will still be created, but they will be virtually empty.
