prx984, 512RAM

tap52384, this tweak is for compatible only because it's needed when WinSAT removed. Why would you even want it on the non-compatible cards, it will go slow. If you have a good experience with it I may add that too.

KRYOGENIUS, well searching inside the files for a related text, then when you get one others are all structured similiarly.

iwod, experience and vista's way of setup, both contributed to the speed. Almost all is removable, not to worry, it will be small as nlited XP, or at least very close to it.

XPero, let me know when you check it if it's ok, i used only the fontsubstitute tweaks because that area is for that, other parts of the tweak weren't so clean, and you can return to default with vlite, just reverse the tweak.

Jeronimo, yeah the gallery missing is a bug, corrected. About other I'll save it for review.

markusdlv, listen now, ALL DVD files are extracted (from the image file), 90% of them are DOUBLE copied (in cache and installed). How about that for an answer? ;) Vista doesn't install it just extracts.

For "dead links" read the referrer guide, or just search for it, I'll add unprotected mirrors soon.

edit: Updated it silently, now includes PhotoGallery

Great work :thumbup

Just one quick question.. do you know if the 64-bit version will get any smaller installed? I removed everything and the install is still 4.7 gig.

Can I ask where is this cache?

I would really like to delete it - either manually, or if vLite can prevent creating of cache (or delete it after setup) THEN that'd be superb! ;)

Dakirn, as XtremeMaC said use the Rebuild option (that's second one on Apply)

prathapml, sure, it's the Windows\winsxs but it's tied with the other needed runtimes so I advise against playing with it unless you know what you're doing. I am considering it for some time now but it's not clean as removing it with the removed component. It would be easier it there are not also the components which are pulled from control panel Programs - Windows Features. So I'm guessing that such option would require from the user to give up the ability to add not installed windows features. Which I'm guessing isn't a big problem for a majority.

That's odd, that's what I was doing. The ISO finishes as 1100mb but the installed size of the directory is 4.7gig.

I'll take a look at it some more, thanks for the help :D

That can be removed since vLite 0.5, i think.

I finally got around to using 0.8 today. I deleted my old Vista installation and for the first time installed Vista from a CD. That was unbelievable!! It installed a lot faster. It boots faster. It shuts down faster. Windows folder takes just 2.64 GB. No problems so far.

nuhi, thank you very much. I had almost decided to stay on XP, but Vista with vLite is almost good enough to be used as my main OS.

2.4 GB ! Wow, can you post your ini file, I'd like to see what you removed. Mine is around 5gb. Did you remove enerything, or just about everything?

Actually it's 2.73 now, after installing a few things, as you can see in the screenshot below. If I remember correctly, I removed everything other than Aero.

All I use from Vista is the taskbar and the start menu. For everything else, I have third party programs which are way better than Microsoft can make. If it was possible to remove eveything I want, my Windows folder would be 50MB.

Do you think that maybe in the up coming versions that minimum ram check will be removed? I'd like to try to install vista on my PIII 650 laptop :P
