    Logitech Setpoint

    That one is meant for the MS Intellimouse, so I don't know if it will run with my MX1000. Also, it only supports only five buttons - subtracting left and right buttons which you better don't redefine, and the wheel button which is pretty much unusable, that only leaves two. Finally, it's for XP64 (where Setpoint works fine) and untested on Vista x64 final, much less SP1. Unsigned driver would also mean pressing F8 at every boot. Thus, it's not of much use for me. Looks like I really have to wait until Logitech gets their act together.

    Component cache (WinSxs) removal not working properly

    Quite a bit, actually. Before it was over 3gb, after only 0.5gb - but I wonder why this rest doesn't get removed as well.

    Logitech Setpoint

    I tried out something new - I unpacked the setpoint installer and the ran setup from the "1-setpoint" subdir. The setup seemed to run better, and in device manager I even had a Logitech entry for the first time However, the tab is still mia, even after a reboot I've then tried setting up the user.xml properly and rebooted. Turns out it was only a partial success - the mouse pointer speed works, but the button settings don't work Still no tab as well. Well, at least the mouse is usable now.

    Would you rather use XP or Vista?

    XP64, hands down B) Vista is overly bloated, sluggish at times, and lacks compatibility with older apps and devices. Only with Win2008, it's starting to get better (although still some issues remain).

    Which version of Windows sucks the most?

    I vote for ME in the absence of Vista (aka ME 2.0 ) Only Win2008 is slowly starting to become usable (still with some issues though).

    Ok, I'll give this one last try and see if I can get it to work.

    Same here, I just don't like stuff to be as extremely bloated as it is. If the slimmed-down stuff runs faster, that's a nice plus on top of it.
  10. I've been trying out the Component cache (WinSxs) removal, but it is not working properly. After install, I still have a WinSxs folder which is half a gigabyte, containing roughly 18k files Now while this is much smaller than the size of the folder without using the removal, it makes me wonder why there is that much left?

    I'd say that is a moot point as only .net 2.0 is installed by default. You can add .net 3.0 by "Add Features", but that easily breaks when removing components. (You can still d/l and install the .net 3.0/3.5 runtime from MS, even without "Add Features").

    Logitech Setpoint

    From reading all the threads dealing with it on the Logitech forum, the missing tab seems to be not uncommon at all, and appearing on all versions from Windows XP 32-bit to Windows 2008 64-bit. I've now tried out all the possible solutions they mentioned (all with uninstall/reboot/reinstall inbetween), like install with device manager from the cddrv dir, changing around the wdf stuff (including renaming the wdf01000.sys file) and whatnot, back and forth and back again. However, nothing of that worked, the tab stays hidden no matter what I do I guess I'll have to wait until a proper driver for Win2008 x64 comes out, no go otherwise. As effective working isn't possible with such a slug pace pointer, I'd say that ends my trying out of Windows 2008 for now. It's a shame that not even such elementary drivers as the mouse driver work properly... while on the whole it's a clear improvement over Vista, I guess it will still be some time until Windows 2008 is ready for prime time.
  13. I've done a very stripped down Win2008 as well now, and Server Manager still works fine B) Of those listed by you, I kept only .net (because I need it) and Html engine. I doubt removing .net causes this, so it's probably the lacking Html engine. However, you can still compare yours to my config and see if there's any more differences: [Compatibility] Halo 2 KMPlayer [CustomHide] [Components] ;# Accessories # Accessibility Paint Speech Support ;# Drivers # Display adapters-Ati Display adapters-Intel Display adapters-nVidia Diva Server Ethernet network adapters Modems Printers-Apollo Printers-Brother Printers-Canon Printers-Citizen Printers-Dell Printers-Diconix Printers-Epson Printers-Fuji Xerox Printers-Fujitsu Printers-Gestetner Printers-HP Printers-IBM Printers-Infotec Printers-Konica Printers-Konica Minolta Printers-Kyocera Mita Printers-Lanier Printers-Lexmark Printers-Minolta Printers-Minolta-QMS Printers-NEC Printers-NRG Printers-Oce Printers-Oki Printers-Okidata Printers-Olivetti Printers-Panasonic Printers-QMS Printers-Ricoh Printers-Samsung Printers-Savin Printers-Seikosha Printers-Sharp Printers-Sony Printers-Star Printers-Tally Printers-Tektronix Printers-Wipro ePeripherals Printers-Xerox QLogic Fibre Channel Adapter Sound controllers TV Tuners-ADS Technologies TV Tuners-ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

    Sounds good B) How do you remove the dependencies?

    Logitech Setpoint

    Ok, I'll have a look. I can already say that one of the solutions given (Zone Alarm interfering) can't apply to me since it's on a freshly installed Windows 2008 w/ no additional apps. It can't be the Usb port either since it works fine on my XP64. I'll have to check back w/ my Win2008 installation if there are any files missing or somesuch...
