  1. No matter how unimportant tens of megabytes difference is in today's world, this is an impressive result. I am actually waiting for the moment I have extra money so I can get WinRAR legally at last and get back to it. I was using it pretty much since early 2.x versions, and switched to 7-zip about two years ago after feeling guilty. That program might compress well, but the GUI is crap, and the whole development process is a joke.
  2. I just got back to this. Can these keys be used completely generally? As in, do they contain any machine/user/whatever specific values that would cause any problems when imported elsewhere?
  3. Do not use buggy useless three years abandoned programs. Instead, try Win Toolkit.
  4. I am not too fussed about IE anyway, the browser is utter crap. No idea what they fixed or improved in v10, but the functionality is just as crippled as v8/9. I only use it to open sites that don't work in Opera... heh. Wondering when will Ms learn.
  5. RT7Lite? That program NEVER worked, and was abandoned well over two years ago. Noone will help you with this.
  6. Are these settings specifically for IE10? I am not sure some of those were mentioned in the original WAIK.
  7. It would be nice if unread posts in a thread were marked as such somehow. While the "take me to the first unread post" link in front of a thread name works 99% of the time, it would still be nice to have a visual indicator inside a thread.
  8. This might be pretty handy tool, but being that paranoid internet user I am, I wouldn't want to touch an .exe from unknown person unless source code was provided. No offence though!
  9. Aha. Too bad I have no idea what IPB is, so that thread was left unnoticed.
  10. The forum looks completely different. I am disorientated and it all looks awkward. Also, what's this trend of changing major things without a single word of explanation or announcement upfront?
  11. Oh. You're right. Why does it work then? (for default image at least) And ironically, the WSIM never gave me an error when validating it like this
  12. Yea, it's weird. I am playing around with integrating IE10 right now. The actual integration goes without problems, but something is not compatible here. <component name="Microsoft-Windows-IE-ClientNetworkProtocolImplementation" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <CacheLimit>51200</CacheLimit> </component> Based on documentation, this value is in kilobytes.
  13. But it's right there. That and "setupuilanguage" are the only required ones for unattended setup. After a few hours I managed to solve it though: I had to add a bloody product key to WinPE pass!! I mean, wtf is that? I didn't have to when I did a test installation in a VM. I have no idea what's behind all this, but at least it works now. This is what works 100% now: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="windowsPE"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE" processorArchit
  14. lol. I was trying to be as general as possible, and I overshot Basically I meant some random .exe, typically an installer of some sort, but I really wanted to avoid going into specifics.
  15. I have some problems with my answer file again. Installing in VM works FLAWLESSLY, but when I try it on real PC, I get all those language settings and basically any window that has button to click on pop up on me in the initial WinPE setup phase. It almost looks like the file is being ignored for some reason, but I can't tell. I even validated the file in System Image Manager from WAIK, and there were no errors. I am completely clueless. Please help. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="windowsPE">
  16. I have a few questions about batch files I can't seem to google any clear answer to. When starting unspecified programs from a .cmd batch file, does it make any difference if I use start command or not? What's the difference between "start xyz.exe" and "cmd xyz.exe"? Both seem to be doing the same thing, but I do know there are some major differences there. I also see both being used at the same time, sometimes (like in the case of starting batch files from Windows 7's answer file for example). Basically, starting a program can be done by just using the .exe's name, by using cmd command, by us
  17. Oh. Do you have an older version without any Powershell in it then? Also, just a cosmetic thing, but wouldn't you consider rewriting the file so commands are in the order they appear in the menu? Currently it can be pretty hard to find the appropriate lines if you want to change the whole thing a little.
  18. Max, could you please rewrite the mount image xyz command to make it work with path with spaces in it please? I tried numerous combinations of additional \" but without any luck. It probably works completely differently with Powershell, which I have exactly zero knowledge of.
  19. So the guy was banned for asking about donations? Umm.... something stinks here.
