  1. I found a solution: I converted (manually) the reg file to a cmd file: @reg delete "HKCU\Keyboard Layout\Substitutes" /v 00000409 /f @reg add "HKCU\Keyboard Layout\Preload" /v 1 /t REG_SZ /d 00000409 /f @reg add "HKCU\Keyboard Layout\Preload" /v 2 /t REG_SZ /d 00000418 /f @reg add "HKCU\Keyboard Layout\Preload" /v 3 /t REG_SZ /d d0010418 /f @reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\CTF\Assemblies\0x00000409\{34745C63-B2F0-4784-8B67-5E12C8701A31}" /v Default /t REG_SZ /d {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000} /f @reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\CTF\Assemblies\0x00000409\{34745C63-B2F0-4784-8B67-5E12C8701A31}" /v Profile /t REG_SZ /d {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000} /f @reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\CTF\Assemblies\0x00000409\{34745C63-B2F0-4784-8B67-5E12C8701A31}" /v KeyboardLayout /t REG_DWORD /d 04090409 /f @reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\CTF\SortOrder\AssemblyItem\0x00000409\{34745C63-B2F0-4784-8B67-5E12C8701A31}\00000000" /v KeyboardLayout /t REG_DWORD /d 04090409 /f I add it in Un-attended >> RunOnce. A question: is there a program to convert reg to cmd? I searched with Google but I couldn't find a good one.
  2. In Windows XP worked but I guess in Windows 7 is different... So what can I do then...?
  3. Hi. I'm trying to modify my Windows 7 x86 Ultimate with rt7lite. Normally when I install I have this: But I wanna make it install like this: With regshot I have compared the registry before and after modifying manually and I have made this registry settings: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Substitutes] "00000409"=- [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload] "1"="00000409" "2"="00000418" "3"="d0010418" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\Assemblies\0x00000409] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\Assemblies\0x00000409\{34745C63-B2F0-4784-8B67-5E12C8701A31}] "Default"="{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}" "Profile"="{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}" "KeyboardLayout"=dword:04090409 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\SortOrder\AssemblyItem\0x00000409\{34745C63-B2F0-4784-8B67-5E12C8701A31}\00000000] "KeyboardLayout"=dword:04090409 When I run it after installation is changing fine. But if I add it as a reg file in rt7lite is not. Windows installs the same. What am I doing wrong...? Please help me. Thank you. Best regards, Cosmin3
  4. Hi. Yesterday I tried to use vlite to modify Windows 7 x86 installation files. On my computer I have same OS. I changed a few settings and clicked on Apply. After a few minutes Windows 7 said that vlite stopped responding. I closed it. In temporary files folder I found a "vsTemp19" folder (I think install.wim decompressed). About 9 GB total size. I tried to erase it. Most of the files were erased but for some of them the file manager (Explorer and Total Commander) is saying "access is denied" or "file not found". I tried from another OS, I tried with Unlocker - nothing. The only solution that I know it's working is to format the drive. But I can't do that. Is there something that can be done...? Thank you in advance. Best regards, Cosmin3 Later edit: I tried everything from http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/16618-can-t-delete-folder-you-need-permission-2.html except with "norton ghost recovery disk" (because I don't have one). Nothing worked. Later later edit: I even tried with Linux, without success.
  5. The problem is I don't have a modem, I connect to ISP without one (PPPoE = point-to-point protocol over Ethernet). I just have a network card to which I connect the cable, that's all. And I don't see the point buying a modem or a router just to solve this problem, since I have only one computer. The guys that I mentioned are having more than one, so by this they solved other things as well. Not my case...
  6. Thank you. I set it to automatic and I restarted Windows. Unfortunately still doesn't work... Later edit: On Google I have found others with the same problem in Windows 7. Their (only) solution was to buy a modem/router that automatically connects to ISP.
  7. I found out why is doing that and I'm feeling kind of stupid cause I didn't think of this first. Windows 7 installed (by default, without asking me) United States-International keyboard layout. I switched to US and now is fine. Thank you.
  8. Hi. I made a PPPoE connection using "New connection wizard". Lately I set that it shouldn't ask for name and password again. The problem is that if I try to start the connection it does nothing (no window, no message). Second time it works. I close the connection and I try again, it connects first time I try. I restart Windows, again the problem. The problem is not from my ISP and is not from the way I made this connection. I just followed the same steps like in Windows XP. In XP works fine, in 7 is not. I went to a friend with Windows 7 also. He has the same problem. Is it a Windows 7 bug or is there something that I can do to fix it...? Thank you in advance. Best regards, Cosmin3
  9. Hi. In switching from Windows XP to Windows 7 I encountered some problems. One of them is that I can't use right Alt key in combination with other keys. For example Alt + Return, Alt + F[5..12] in some programs... Is there a way to change its "behavior" to work exactly like left Alt key (like it does in Windows XP)? I searched on Google and I searched here but I didn't find anything useful. But if I didn't search properly sorry in advance. Best regards, Cosmin3
  10. Google is your friend: http://www.google.ca/search?q=language+packs+download+for+windows+7&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-Address&ie=&oe=&redir_esc=&ei=qeq2TJ7cH4vangfbloG7CA http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/08/29/download-windows-7-mui-language-packs-official-32-bit-and-64-bit-direct-download-links/ When it comes to finding files to include into my installation files I don't trust Google 100%, I trust Msfn forum Thank you again.
  11. Another question: how (from where) can I download language packs so I can integrate them with rt7lite...?
  12. I saw them but thank you for telling me
  13. Sorry for me not explain better. And sorry for my english I don't mean 32 or 64 but what is the use of each of these folders: Client for NFS\ IE8 updates, if you are not using IE9 beta\ IIS\ Integrate to installation media\ MSMQ\ Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications\ I want to know this so I can decide if I want to add their contents to installation files. Or I will add all their contents if you say it's better to do that.
  14. Thank you but I was not asking about the folders in root but about the folders inside http://solor.wtf.la./Windows.7/Hotfixes/x86/
  15. Sorry for the double post, but I have 2 additional questions. About those folders: for some of them I understand what they are for ("IE8 updates, if you are not using IE9 beta" for example) but not for all. Could you please explain to me...? And, in "Integrate to installation media", there are 2 cab files. But rt7lite wants only msu. How should I integrate them...? Thank you. Later edit: and when it says (for example): Updated: 3.10.2010 - Added: KB981830, KB2263779, KB2276255, KB227669, KB2280390-v2, KB2289553 - Removed: KB975849, KB979744-v2, KB982454-v2 It's for 32 bit only or for 32 and 64 bit...?
  16. Hi. I'm new in this section. I read the sticky topics but I couldn't find what I'm looking for: a list with links to (important) updates for Windows 7, to integrate them in my installation files using rt7Lite. On rt7lite site I have found this: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=windows+7+update But there are over 1000 links to check on dozens of pages... Could you please help me...? Thank you in advance. Best regards, Cosmin3
  17. I understand, thank you for these informations.
  18. allen2, which Windows version do you have on your computer..? 2000, XP, 2003, Vista or 7? I'm asking because I have found this: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/system/platform/server/PAE/PAEdrv.mspx It says that, even with PAE enabled, you can't access more than 4 GB of physical RAM on any Windows XP. Sorry for bugging you with this but I want to be absolutely sure that it will work on my OS before buying so much RAM and that program... Thank you.
  19. Thank you. I knew about that registry setting, few days ago I used it to make a program for use at first Windows start after installation. You can read about it at: Ok, no backup for the ramdrive, it's better this way. But I think it's good to check "Save at system shutdown" option before the first restart, so the empty pagefile could be loaded next time (it's fast, the file in which ramdrive is saved has only 5 MB). After that you can deactivate it. I'm just curious: is there a way to detect that a pagefile is really used by Windows..?
  20. That's what I thought too but I wanted to be sure. The name of the topic is "Creating a ramdrive before Windows starts" but the ramdrive is created by this application AFTER. So it's not surprising that you can't set a pagefile on it. Now I have only 2 GB and my HDD is often used by Windows accessing pagefile. I don't have applications which use 2 GB but I have many who use hundreds of MB each. I load and close them frequently and after a while the memory becomes "bloated". I have to restart Windows every 2..3 hours or I can choose to increase Ram size. So I chose to increase Ram size. I can increase it at 4 or 8 GB (dual channel). 4 GB is average (since only 3..3.5 is available). I don't think it's worth buying and installing that program just for 0.5..1 GB. But with 8 GB I thought I could do something that I dream for many years: to get rid of the pagefile from the HDD. But I can't deactivate it completly (some programs are using it), so I'm using a ramdrive (much faster). And it has to be 1.5 x Ram size (recommended value) so Windows wouldn't "protest" sometimes saying that Virtual Memory size is too low. So 8 GB >> 3.2 GB Ram + 4.8 GB ramdrive is just fine. Some people may disagree with me, that's normal. After all, it's just a dream
  21. Yes, I saw that but it doesn't mean that it can be set to use ONLY that memory. It means that it can use ALSO that memory. Which is different. But maybe I misunderstood. Look, I'm sorry. Can you please show me how to set this in the program? Because I searched in interface and in Help and I didn't find it... Thank you. PS: and I have another problem: I set a pagefile on that ramdrive. But after restart it doesn't seem to be used by Windows. I can even erase it directly. On that site it says about "system page file support" but I couldn't find anything in interface and Help file. Could you help me also with that..? Thank you. Oh, btw, I have read that Windows XP SP2 and SP3 can't read beyond 3.5..4 GB even with PAE enabled. And I have XP SP3... Is it true...?
  22. Yes, it can use any memory but can be set to specifically use ONLY memory that OS can't see..? I didn't see that written on that page. If it can't do that, that's no point using it, because it will take memory that OS is able to use. I have such crashes only once per several months. And most of the times I know what caused them.
