vLite 0.5 alpha - Vista Lite

132 posts in this topic

Hi, :D

here is the thing some of you have been waiting for to make Vista slimmer.

Check for more info at vLite.net.

Be gentle as it is in the early stages as is the site itself but do report what you find out of order.

Always test first if you're are trying it for the first time, I recommend the new VMWare 5.5.3 or the MS Virtual PC 2007.

Have fun.

notes:

- made for build 5744 and newer, recommended RTM build 6000

- only 32bit for now, working on the 64bit adaption

nuhi, with nLite, most images with drastic chagnes were not RIS ready, with vLite, are these going to be WDS ready?

if you're not sure, anyone who can please do some testing along with me. I don't have a full version yet but hope to get it very soon through MSDNAA. Once i get it i will start doing some major testing with it.

thanks Nuhi for your time and effort.

To add something to what booogy said, there's a wim* folder in vlite. If you can't get it to work, right-click on the inf and select install.

Can't you choose the fist option when starting the process ?

I've never used it but help says it's instantaneous.

emulated my iso with daemon tools and browsed for the location:

---------------------------

Error

---------------------------

Mounting image error.

It needs Filter Manager.

Error: 5

Do you want to install it now? Choose OK to browse for a full Windows installation CD.

However if it did worked for you and now stopped due to some error then just reboot your machine and retry.

---------------------------

OK Cancel

---------------------------

Don't get it : what app threw this error : DT or windows ?

I can tell you isos are not the same as the ones for XP but it works when you boot from it. Also, try to burn on a CD/DVD-RW and see if it works.

Kelsenellenelvian, well if you read that popup to the end it can help you install the filter, if it fails let me know.

luke.mccormick, it should be ok, what's the rush, try it when you can.

dAbReAkA, it only extracts if you choose rebuild and then only extracts the files which are not removed.

Read the answer for Kelsenellenelvian regarding the filter. Today is a new episode of Heroes, don't forget ;)

Camarade_Tux, actually he's missing a Filter Manager, that's in XP full CD.

Sn4k36, thanks, I think so too but don't tell anyone ;)

I installed the filter. Showed vLite where the files are (mounted ISO and burned DVD). vLite detected the DVD. Selected ultimate, business, etc. however nothing worked. Keep getting 'Mounting image error -> It needs filter manager, error 5'.

...Copied the DVD contents to my harddisk. And now it works...

FYI: I am running Vista.

Roufneck, so it didn't report to you that it is read-only, ok, but anyway now you all know, copy the source to the HDD first like in nLite...I'll work on better scan of that in next one.

Just a question - wouldn't vLite (and nLite) be more suitably classified as a 'The Ultimate Deployment Customization Tool' or 'The Ultimate Deployment Modification Environment Tool' rather than 'The Ultimate Deployment Tool'?

Madhits45, started few months ago during early betas...it wasn't easy.

Spooky, I'll consider it. Have in mind that English is not my native language so I need feedback like that, thx.

puntoMX, not in public man! ;)

Ut\Collector, good, don't break it :)
