  1. I got my updates from RyanVM, great update pack. There was no "Windows6.0-KB948609-v6001-x64_Net_3.5" or ""Windows6.0-KB948610-v6001-x64_Net_3.5" update, doesnt mater. I just stripped out all the languages and it was good. Thanks shahed.

    I also integrated all hotfixes and extra's except for language packs, and my install.wim was over 4gb, so i just stripped out all languages with vlite, and it was all fine then.

    Anyways glad to know its all good for you now :)

  2. My vista x64 is pre SP1 integrated, and i also had the same problem, because i integrated all dreamscene video updates.

    The only way i could fit all hotfixes into my vista x64 dvd was to ONLY integrate hotfixes and NOT the dreamscene packages, and the other junk extra's.

    In your situation, just integrate ONLY the sp1, and post sp1 hotfixes, and leave the dreamscene packages out. This should do the trick.

    And also dont integrate the "Windows6.0-KB948609-v6001-x64_Net_3.5" and ""Windows6.0-KB948610-v6001-x64_Net_3.5" if you have downloaded these update packs from Micro nova or any other sites (because they take some huge space on your install.wim) . Also avoid unneeded language pack integration as well.

    You can also strip out other vista images with vlite to gain more space, eg, business, home premium etc, and only keep the image you want to install.

  3. "First thing is, ANALOGUE DOES NOT WORK ON SERVER 2008 (my batch setup has no analogue files)"

    Just out of curiousity, do you think it is theoretically possible to make analogue work on 2008 using the same comparison process used for creating the batch file for digital?

    I'd hate to have to go back to 2003 server :no:

    ANALOGUE is possible on server, as it uses the same kernel (core) as vista. Its just some files and registry entries are missing, that needs to be present in server installation for it to work properly.

    Maybe you can try importing some registry keys and files from vista to server to see if you can get it to work.

    I am not on server anymore, so wont be working on this anymore :(


  4. I would like to do that also. I think it's possible. I have seen that with waik you can configure the Foundation package in offline servicing. you have option to configure it in permanent - removable mode but i never tried yet. ask Avivo

    Thanks hannubys for this info.

    Avivo, can you please post a simple guide on how to remove Vista components using WAIK?

    Thank you

  5. ^^LOL :lol:

    You tell me which is better... an OS which is running with 3 gigs of ram and not making use of it completely....or an OS which uses the available ram to the fullest so that your most frequently used programs load faster

    I tell you which is better..."an OS which uses the available ram to the fullest so that your most frequently used programs load faster" :thumbup

  6. ummm... how do you extract an .exe file?

    i need to get my audio workin :-(

    I believe in this case, you can open that EXE file with WinRAR or perhaps Winzip.

    Good luck!

    Some "exe" files cannot be opened with winrar or 7zip, so just click on the setup.exe, this will extract its files to "Temp" folder, then go to that "Temp" folder, and grab the drivers from that setup.exe pack.

    Sometimes "exe" files extracts as "binary" file, so in that case, install the setup.exe and use some sort of driver grabber to grab these driver files.

  7. Hi,

    I've been trying to get this working, but seem to be doing something wrong. I've read through this forum, the one of GBPVR and Hauppauge, and still am stuck.

    This is where I got. I've got a GA-MA78GM-S2H mobo with onboard ATI 3200HD GPU, AMD 4850e CPU, and most importantly, a Hauppauge PVR150 (2600 series) with remote as my analogue capture card. It is connected to our analogue TV-distribution cable.

    I did a clean install of Windows 2008 Standard x64 English, added the desktop experience feature and installed the k-lite normal codec pack. Then I ran the script on a 64-bit Vista in vmware (and checked the source folder - all seemed to be there). Copied the whole thing to the Windows 2008, and ran the script. Everything seemed to be running ok, except for an "access denied" error when moving the files. After the automatic reboot, I found the "kswdmcap.ax.mui" in the System32 and the SysWOW64 subfolders of the source folder. When trying the "move"-lines from the batch file manually for these two file, I get the same access denied error. I then installed all the remaining drivers, installed the Wintv application, GBPVR and DVB dream (as suggested on this forum), but none seem to work. Errors are:

    GBPVR Tuning assistant (set to Hauppauge PVR 150, Belgium, Cable): "Failed to find Crossbar filter. Wrong Device Type?"

    Wintv 6: "Cannot access TV Tuner, please check the unit is connected and the drivers are correctly installed."

    DVBdream: "Cannot initialize DVB hardware! ErrorCode:1 Application will work in offline mode"

    I did manage to use the PVR-150 on linux, but due to driver troubles (ATI stll not performing wel with myhtv), switched to Windows 2008, so the card seems to be OK.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm running out of ideas and options. If I need to upload any logfiles, please let me know.

    Thanks in advance for your support!


    First thing is, ANALOGUE DOES NOT WORK ON SERVER 2008 (my batch setup has no analogue files)

    Secondly You must run the batch file as administrator to avoid access denied error.

    And lastly, not all tv applications work under server. Dvbviewer works great!

    Sorry as i can not help you much on this one, as am back to using vista. My server trial period has expired, and i was only running server all this time for experimental use! :lol:

  8. Hi,

    Thanks for the great work, my setup currently have following issues, and I am not sure where I should looking into:

    System is W2k8 64bit

    Tuner is AutumnWave onAir GT, which works fine in XP 64bit and the GraphEdit in XP worked and can watch the HDTV without any problem (pls see attachment #1)

    I have extract all required files(32 and 64bit) from the Vista64 image and correct installed by using the installation scripts.

    Also, I have install the bda.inf from bdaxp.cab.

    install the bda.inf from w2k8 windows\inf directory

    install/reinstall tuner driver/software several times

    (I can say above steps are tried many times between reboot as I have struggled this for several weeks)

    Now, the issue I can see (2nd attachment) is that "BDA Source Filter" and "BDA Receiver Component" is missing in the filter configs using GraphEdit.

    But I checked by regedit, those GUID is there, for example:


    @="BDA Source Filters"

    "FriendlyName"="BDA Source Filters"


    But "BDA Source Filters" is not in the GraphEdit filters list.

    Is this issue related with the Hardware driver install? or my generic BDA framework not setup properly?

    Thanks in advance.

    The problem is, NOT all tv card work under server 2008, (even with this BDA setup pack) and i guess thats the case with you as well. Mine is working fine, i can watch HD tv chanells. The problem is not hardware related, but generic BDA framework.

  9. Easiest way, is to just copy paste this code in notepad, and save with "reg" extension and merge.

  10. Redmond (WA) – Microsoft is beginning to build up interest in its next-generation operating system. The company confirmed that it will be handing out a pre-beta software at the PDC 2008 event next month and if the conference scheduled is any indication, Windows 7 will focus on five key areas: Graphics, communications, energy-efficient applications, multi-touch and a first step into Web 3.0.

    It appears that Microsoft is well on track with the development of Windows 7. Barely 10 months after the company handed out its first “Milestone 1” version of the software to its closest partners, the company is now ready to share what it has been working on with a much larger developer crowd. In a post published on the website of the Professional Developers Conference 2008 (PDC 2008), Microsoft said that “keynote attendees will be among the first to receive the pre-beta build of Windows 7.”

    Microsoft is referring to the keynote of Steven Sinofsky, senior vice president of the Windows and Windows Live Engineering Group. Sinofsky has led most of Microsoft’s public outreach relating to Windows 7. Following a rather lukewarm reception of the demonstration of Windows multi-touch features by Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer at this year’s All Things Digital conference, Sinofsky squashed all rumors that Windows 7 would be an entirely different operating system in May of this year. According to the executive, Windows 7 will be based on the kernel of Windows Server 2008 kernel, which is an evolution of the Windows Vista kernel. The executive highlighted driver compatibility, saying that Windows 7 will not come with a new driver model. “We're very clear that drivers and software that work on Windows Vista are going to work really well on Windows 7,” he said.

    Since then, Windows 7 has largely been expected to become a Windows Vista on steroids, or, if you will, a Vista SE that will bridge the gap between Vista and completely new operating system that may be released in the late 2011 or 2012 timeframe. And the PDC 2008 scheduled appears to support these expectations – there will be some new features, but no surprises. Microsoft has dedicated a substantial portion of the conference to the new operating system: 22 out of 155 sessions will directly new features in Windows 7 – which makes the software the second-most covered topic (behind cloud services with 26 sessions) during the event.

    The lion’s share of all Windows 7 sessions is dedicated to graphics - the appearance of Windows 7 and applications. Four tracks will provide information on the Windows 7 graphics architecture, new API’s to find, organize and visualize, new text and graphic API’s and Windows 7 taskbar integration. There is lots of content that will deal with Direct3D and how developers can take greater advantage of GPUs, but we know that these sessions will be restricted to graphics and that Windows 7 will not support the use of GPGPUs.

    Two sessions focus exclusively on performance (of background processes) and energy efficiency of applications under Windows 7, and other major tracks will zero in on communications applications, native web services and how developers can develop applications that will take advantage on Windows 7’s multi-touch support. A look at new Shell user experience APIs also looks to be an interesting briefing.

    If there is a surprise, then it surely is a touch of Web 3.0 in Windows 3: Software development engineer Dan Polivy will lead a session entitled “Windows 7: New APIs for Building Context-Aware Applications” targeted at experienced Windows developers. There is no information on this session available at this time, but if Microsoft is putting a greater focus on context-aware applications, Windows 7 may have a secret killer feature in store for us.


  11. I am getting a error in vLite 1.2 final when I try to load Vista .

    I tried my original Vista without SP1 and one edited with vLite some time ago. Everything worked fine before. :}

    Looks like you removed NET Framework from your vista image (as you mention you edited vista with vlite before having this problem), as vLite requires Net framework to run properly (correct me if am wrong)

  12. Im using a Vista SP1 source btw.

    This vista update loop is a major problem, not only with you, but many people as well (i have been experiencing as well). If someone can please point out which component removal causes this, then please let us know.

    Thank you

  13. I'm not sure about this but when i installed 7-zip silently my pc freezed and i had to force the shutdown. I had this problem with two images with the same config ini file.

    Do you use any other compression tools alongside 7zip?

    also winrar. but i never had this problem before using the final release 1.2, maybe because of an update.

    Weird, never had this problem. Try using the 7zip beta version with its silent switch ( /S )

  14. Glad to know your happy with your overall experience with your stripped down vista. But if it was me with these specs, i wouldn't even bother stripping down a vista to run on these specs, specially with 512 ram and a 700mhz CELERON cpu!
