  1. Is this the release candidate or the beta? *Edit Nevermind, I just installed and it shows RC as version.
  2. Does anybody know how to integrate the new Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate? You can find the x64 version here or the x86 version here. I extracted it after download hoping to find a .msu file, but there doesn't appear to be any. Maybe I could use a silent install switch instead - does anybody have an idea what that might be? Any help would be appreciated!
  3. PLEASE ANSWER... I just started using WPI, so I wasn't sure if it was possible to use a variable to read this information. The easier way though would be using an asterisk (e.g. VLC*.exe), then it wouldn't be necessary. Great piece of software though as I can see a lot of time went into this. I as well have been using Ketarin, but the main drawback for me to use it with WPI is that I never know what version exactly I'm updating to. I noticed that there is an option to install directly from Ketarin - you can even setup groups similarly to WPI. I might give that a shot and see if I can do it all from one program.
  4. What you are suggesting is a good idea for installing software on a PC that already has many programs installed. What I need WPI for is after a fresh installation of windows. For me, using the 'getFileVersion' would require more work with each update... not less. That's ok though, I'll just wait and hope for the option to install using the *.exe function.
  5. So I take it by your response that there is no variable for this? If true, then I will have quite a bit more time trying to keep my files up to date while using WPI .
  6. I think I understand what you guys are saying. However, this still leaves me with the same problem. If I were to download the latest version of VLC Media Player as VLC Media Player v1.1.3.5 and just rename it as VLC Media Player, then how will I know when I need to download the latest version again if the version is not attached to the file name? I'm trying to keep all my files up to date with the latest versions before I run WPI.
  7. I update my software often and so I like to have the name of the app with the version appended to the end. For example: VLC Media Player 1.1.0 However, I don't want to have to update this within WPI constantly . Is there a way I can create a variable or something in the command string? Currently under the command tab I have: "%root%\Media\VLC Media Player*.exe" But placing an astrisk behind the name will cause the installer to fail as well. Any suggestions?
  8. sure...I have some more new set of tweaks apart from this. Awesome! While we're on the topic, would it be possible to include all the visual effects in Windows 7? See image below:
  9. not like that....I have some work and busy with my another new software. Just wanted to say thanks and to speak on the behalf of us who really appreciate your incredible contribution to the Windows 7 community. We are truly humbled by your hard work. For the rest of you, before posting comments like 'TheWalrus', why don't you contribute by using the donate button and then maybe he'll actually have some extra time away from his paid job to give to this amazing project...
  10. Just tried out the new 1.5 build. Fantastic work Ben! One thing I noticed (even in previous builds), is that in the Integrations tab when you add applications for the PI Wizard, it saves it to the settings ini, but when loading the ini later, all applications are NOT shown. It's weird because when opening the ini file, it's definitely there. Also, do you think you could add a tab for customizing the Start Menu (see image below)? That would be sweet!
  11. Thanks! Exactly what I'm looking for. Do you know if I need to run PowerPacker or nlite first?
  12. I've been looking through google and this forum for a while and cant find anything. I would like to know how to merge Windows XP Home, Pro, Media Center, Server 2003, etc. Maybe somebody could point me in the right direction...
  13. That key is actually just the generic trial one from MS as I set the unattended file to skip setup and autologon. However I edited it anyway. Thanks for the reply though, I guess I'll just have to limit it to just two for now then .
  14. So is it possible to create a multi-os answer file?
  15. I've just created my first Windows 7 All-in-One iso. While testing in VMware, it shows all 5 versions when there is no Autounattend.xml file. However, as soon as I include the customized Autounattend.xml, it shows only Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) and Windows 7 Ultimate (x86). Can anybody tell me what's wrong with my xml file? I've attached it below. Autounattend.xml
  16. Try setting the following services to start automatically, and reboot: Peer Name Resolution Protocol Peer Networking Grouping Peer Networking Identity Manager PNRP Machine Name Publication Service Thanks Bilar! Still not working after reboot. Maybe there is another service? Do you know if Homegroup is any better than using workgroup (with permissions) for security with file sharing?
  17. Can anybody tell me what is breaking the Homegroup functionality? See image below. Also attached is my inf file. Awesome new build Ben!!! Windows 7 ULTIMATE x86 (new).inf
  18. I was wondering about the importance of keeping winsxs (I mean, why would Microsoft make it a part of their operating system if it's not needed), so I did a google search and I came up with the link below: http://www.winvistaclub.com/f16.html (this link explains winsxs relative to Vista, but I do believe that Windows 7 has the exact same purpose for the folder) Here is the last paragraph taken from the document in the link above: "There have been several blogs and even some “underground” tools that tell you it’s ok to delete the WinSxS directory, and it’s certainly true that after installation, you can remove it from the system and it will appear that the system boots and runs fine. But as described above, this is a very bad practice, as you’re removing the ability to reliably service, all operating system components and the ability to update or configure optional components on your system. Windows Vista only supports the WinSxS directory on the physical drive in its originally installed location. The risks far outweigh the gains removing it or relocating it from the system, given the data described above." Not sure the accuracy of all this, but I thought I'd just let you guys know!
  19. Can anybody tell me what component breaks the Local Users and Groups in the computer management console? I've tried on both 32-bit as well as 64-bit and I get an "Unspecified Error" (see attachment below) when I click on the Find Now button. I've also attached my inf file. Windows 7 ULTIMATE x86.inf
  20. For some reason it doesn't work on VirtualBox, try Vmware. Ok, I'll give VM Ware a try. I did just try using 7lite from a different win7 workstation and I got the following error. I don't think it likes me today.

  21. I just tried installing build 1.0.8 (x86) on VirtualBox and when I tried to start 7lite, it gave me the following error:
  22. Where's the Snipping Tool check box? I don't even see it on there any more? Keeping the Tablet PC didn't keep the Snipping Tool for me.
  23. How do I keep the snipping tool? Is seems that no matter what features I choose to keep or not, the snipping tool is always gone. Any ideas??? Also, I just recieved a windows error after installing and trying to open a program, it says that the "hhctrl.ocx" file is missing and is needed for software to run.
