  1. azon, I am running RT7Lite under W7, so our results may differ. My temporary folder is here C:\Users\John\AppData\Local\Temp. There is a Documents and Settings folder, but it always yields an Access Denied error if I try to open it. I assume you are running Vista - I have never run it. Does it not do the same thing? If you open a Run Dialog and type %temp%, what path does it generate? Enjoy, John.

    As a matter of fact I run W7 too. I only wrote 'Documents and Settings' because I used to in XP. There wasn't Users directory. It was firstly introduced in Vista, while 'Documents and Settings' directory became a hardlink to it. I think you can't access 'Documents and Settings' folder because you're not running under account with admin rights. Nevermind.. This changes nothing.

  2. I notice that all the posters having this error are trying to access 'Documents and Settings' path. Either RT7Lite is doing this on its own, or possibly the posters have changed some path to include the 'Documents and Settings' path which is going to end in a Access Denied error (true in W7 and I assume in Vista also). If you will navigate to this path, and double click the 'Documents and Settings' folder your will see this. If you have changed the path to the temporary directory to include 'Documents and Settings', for example this would be the result. The error text would imply that RT7Lite is saving a log file. Possibly RT7Lite is referencing this path and therefore it must be corrected there. Enjoy, John.

    The operation which the program tries to proceed with at this time is a recursive deletion of its temporary folder.

    This temporary directory by default is indeed within User's temp directory, which is in turn within 'Documents and Settings'.

    But that's the way it's, and there is nothing to correct.

    Nevertheless, I tried to set another short and nice path to temporary directory. Nothing's changed.

    My guess that the problem with 'Documents and Settings' within mounted structure. (Which is either hard or soft link to Users directory, and has some specific access rights) Still I can't see why it needs to be deleted...


  3. Hi all!

    I think I found a problem of using install_wim_tweak (v1.1) with W7. Hope you will help me to find some workaround :)

    It seems that tweaking W7 image registry with install_wim_tweak tool breaks Windows 7 feature's mechanism.

    After this tweak is installed and tweaked OS is installed on target machine (any?) attempt to change enabled feature causes removal of all features from the system.

    I always check it by trying to enable IIS.

    It starts like always: you select checkbox in the list, press OK and wait for operation to complete. But then it requires reboot (which also doesn't seem something catastrophic, but when I tried to do same steps without tweak installed, this operation did not required a reboot). While rebooting it shows you screen with clear message stating that features are configured. But if after all done you open feature list again you will ifnd that it's empty!

    dism /online /get-features shows the same results: no features are available, like they've never been.

    So, no error appears, but instead of enabling of feature, it completely removes all of them, which is both unusual and unexpected. :)

    What can I do to undo whatever tweak does to the image's registry?

  4. I'm preparing a patch for that error....I think you selected only components removal and committed right? And tested it you go that error. It's true If you selected Integration and components then you will not get that error. But this is not the correct method actually to remove components. I'm fixing this issue.....

    Thank for the reply. Yep, you're right, that's the case.

    Just another small question while there is no fix available yet: is it necessary to actually integrate anything into the system to get rid off that error? Or it will be enough to just check integration part as part of the process?

  5. Ben, could you please provide complete settings' file that you have used and tell what virtual environment you're using to test the installation?

    I'm asking because just selecting components which are mentioned in your post with a piece of settings' file doesn't seem to work. I'm always getting "windows could not configure one or more system components" error at the second stage of installation (after the first reboot) for W7 Ultimate under VMWare.
