CD size reached! Much memory saved, RAM and HDD.

Fulfilled some of your wishes as well.

Changes and download.


update: Silently updated to include PhotoGallery which was not detected in initial 0.8 release.

I apologize if this question has been asked before, but does vLite have the ability to force Windows Aero Glass on a system with a non-supported video card, or is that impossible on the final version?

Thanks. Will let you know how it goes.

aero requires 32bit graphics, i don't think there will ever be an easy way to change that. aero glass doesn't even look all that great to me...i prefer the classic style.

I think disabling the systen requirements at setup (min RAM etc) will be also a great option.
Thanks a lot :)

Hello

Thanks to you Nuhi, this Vlite is already the best for vista ! With the same evolution as nlite for XP etc...

I'm going to try this new version today.
Just one question, I have read the guides onto the WAIK and msdn sites, but how do you find the packages ? (IIS etc), How do you do to find the name of the packages to remove them ?

Thanks

As I recall there is an option on the tweaks page to force the Aero Glass.

Nice... Now Vista happily live in inside Parallel inside my Mac :) with much smaller file size! Thanks nuhi :)

I am wondering if this is pretty much all of the stuff we can remove. Or can we expect more to come?
Compare to nlite; vlite is moving at a much faster pace :)

Great job and I though, that CDs are dead, so I should trash them. :D
Can not wait for the next version, with removing of files or drivers support.

Did Windows Photo Gallery get dropped or merged into Windows Photo Viewer as I only see the that one?
Also when I try to write (burn direct) after erasing, I get a write 9216 error. Probably, need to eject first. SO I did and after this, option was still burn direct, but right bottom shows make ISO (and not burn as it should).

Finally, when starting vLite, filter is installed. But on 2nd start license is shown (should be before or right after installation of filter).

I have a question..... what parts of Vista that you can remove using vLite are normally copied to a fresh Installation? For example, will leaving out the printer drivers or the language support give a smaller INSTALLED Vista?

I have this question since i am looking for a smaller/lighter vista, not for a smaller image.

vLite removes components from the installation and therefore the installation ISO is smaller, but also the WIndows Vista you installed. Vista uses 8GB for me by default, I now am down to an installation ISO of 667MB and a Vista installed size of 2.5GB.
