Where can I download tweakui.msi?

6 posts in this topic

The one I got from MS website doesn't work with any switch. I heard there is a msi version of it but I couldn't google one.

Thanks for the help ^^

This is a non-install method. Have done for quite awhile with no problems. Half of the powertoys do not need installation in some way.

1. Open the exe with WinRAR and extract Tweakui.exe.

2. Add TweakUI to your system directory or unattend is $OEM$\$$\system32\.

3. Merge the regfile. RegEdit /s file.reg can be used on it.

4. TweakUI will display in your Control Panel.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; Add TweakUI to Control Panel
; ============================
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D14ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C17}]

"InfoTip"="Tweak your system"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D14ED2E1-C75B-443c-BD7C-FC03B2F08C17}\DefaultIcon]
@="%SystemRoot%\\\\System32\\\\tweakui.exe,0"

I have $OEM$/$1 instead of $OEM$/$$, does that mean I put the .exe in $OEM$/$1/system32 ?

No, just create the folders as I mentioned. It will be copied over to your system directory during textmode of setup.

Edit: $$ = it will copy to Windows directory. ;)

Ok, I have a book here that teaches about unattended setup and it says to create $OEM$/$1 to do silent install of 3rd party programs during Windows setup

Does my folder structure make any sense though?

Edit: NM, got it from the guide here at MSFN? :)

Thanks!

TweakUI v2.10 runs like a standalone; i just put it into my start-> programs -> Tweak folder and run it from there when I need it; it doesn't actually get installed or registered into my Control Panel.

$OEM$\$Docs\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Tweak\TweakUI.exe
