    Mate, you'd be better off using "Tweaked Settings" instead of "Advanced" as tracing back the lot would end up using different settings than in "Advanced" mode anyway.

    Make sure you've got the following enabled as far Themes, Aero Peak and ClearType are concerned.

    Thanks for your reply brother but I am using advanced option as I wish to keep my OS size as small as I can. But at the same time I also wish to keep some components like paint, wordpad, windows Media Player, Windows Photo Viewer, Windows disk image burner, etc. I managed to trim my OS to 935 mb but Aero theme and wifi problem still not solved. If you can share your lastsession.ini with me that would be great.

    I know what you mean mate but one has to do loads of tests to find out more about dependencies ......

    Anyway, here's my last settings file to date ...

    Lastsession.inf

  2. Hey ben,

    I used Advanced option with some modification as I wanted to keep some of the components like windows search, paint etc. But when I install my OS Aero theme was not working infact none of the themes were working. I even tried to patch theme files and tried to apply some third party themes but I am unable to apply any theme. Can you please tell how to enable theme?

    I am again trying to use advanced option this time I have enable themes lets see how it goes.

    Don't forget to set : TWEAKS -> System -> UXTheme patch = Enable

    Don't forget to set : Services -> Themes -> Automatic

    This one should be set as well : Services -> Desktop Window Manager Session Manager -> Automatic

  4. Advanced option is not at all recommended. Its only for those who don't use internet, Media and just for lower end PC's used for only document typing, playing games offline, etc. Remote desktop Assistance is selected for deletion.....Just select Tweaked option and also select winsxs from that.....

    Yeah well, I haven't applied "Advanced Settings" blindly, as mentioned before ... I have made some changes as well. That should be mentioned in bold letters Ben if you ask me.Just to let people know :rolleyes:

    The only mistake I made is leaving "Windows Phone Dialer" checked for removal, by an oversight.

  5. This thing is driving me bonkers ...

    Using RT Lite Beta 1.0.7 on Windows 7 Pro x64. I've used Advanced Settings and changed just a couple of things which had nothing to do with the Internet as far as I can tell. I've also used "Bare-bones" settings in Services and changed just what's related to Aero and themes.

    Now, no Internet connection. The thing I just don't understand is the absence of the Telephony service, I really don't get it.

    Is there anything I could do or do I have to start from scratch again ?

    Please Ben, for the life of me, could you provide an option to save LastSession.inf file prior to apply and commit as the application takes ages to complete the process and it sometimes gets stuck for hours and has to be killed manually, needless to say that all is lost then.

    PS: Unfortunately, I forgot to save my LastSession file before formatting/installing Win 7 Lite. I would have submitted it then ...

    Update: I guess this one was the culprit. I'm not sure though as I've just had an error ( documents and settings - access denied ) while running RT Lite. The session file is lost, a pain in the ar**.

  7. ..... I'm an absolute minimalist: whatever I don't absolutely need and can remove, will be removed. This goes all the way to stripped drivers etc.

    I concur. Pity, the removal components process still gives me some gripes. I've tried to get rid of WMP and Games just to name a few but to no avail.

    Didn't try to remove WMP (would that work without the loss of WMV support within browsers?)

    I'm running Firefox and the only file I need in this particular case is NPMSWMP.dll.

    Have a look here:

    http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?locale=en-US&comments_parentId=540170&comments_offset=20&comments_per_page=20&forumId=1

    One can always use something like this, provided you're using Firefox.

    If WMP is Removed or Disabled then it doesent matter if you have the nessesary addon installed in Firefox.Embedded WMP media simply refuses to play regardless.I ran into this issue with my previous Windows 7 N edition(N means no WMP and IE by default,N-1 adds IE).Now i use regular edition.Back then i installed the media feature pack to get WMP back and only after this was installed and enabled i was able to view embedded WMP media with firefox.

    I can neither confirm nor reproduce this. I don't know how liable WMP is but it should be possible to play inbedded WMP files when using Windows N Edition IMHO. I can't imagine this being impossible.

    As already mentioned, you may want to give MediaPlayerConnectivity a shot along with something like Media Player Classic Home Cinema. Just wondering really.

    Games can be removed without a problem. If they're not removed, then you have the same problem as I described earlier: most of the times the removal process leaves a couple of components untouched, even though they were selected for removal. Really strange.

    I hate to say it but that's the case actually, they haven't been removed at all in my case. I could disable them by running Appwiz.cpl but that isn't what I'm looking for.

  9. You can reload the stripped installation and remove the components left behind. The problems you've described are similar to mine, but I haven't tested 1.06 yet.

    Thanks a lot Guillaume, the is exactly the information I've been looking for. I'll report back then.

    I think you are using the previous version. I fixed it in new build 1.0.6

    bensam56, I'm running the latest Beta 1.0.6 so I really don't know what might be the culprit(s).

  10. I know there's no entry for WMP in the lastsession.inf file.

    The thing is, I wonder why given the fact that it had been selected for removal.

    It's been said quite a few times before: at times components are not removed even though they were selected... Just run the component removal again on that .wim and check what hasn't been removed.

    Sorry but I must have overlooked those posts by the looks of it. Anyway, I've been running in circles for a while now as I just can't understand why items that are actually selected for removal won't actually be removed. The isn't the case for WMP only but have a look below, I selected all games to be removed ... then again

    What do you reckon mates ? I mean, do I have to start from scratch again ?

  11. Please submit your answer sheet here

    Apologies, my bad, there you go ....

    Folders may open in new window after IE removal. Here is the fix for that

    * First create a folder in Program Files as "Internet Explorer" [E.g: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer]

    * Now copy the following DLL file (ieproxy.dll) and paste it in C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer

    * Finally, Restart your PC or logoff and enter again

    Note: 64-bit users should also create "Internet Explorer" in Program Files (x86)

    I wonder if this post was your answer to the error message I had posted. If that's the case, which would be a little puzzling as I'm not sure where I should create that "Internet Explorer" folder ?

    Thanks a lot for your assistance.

    Try without giving space for computer name. I saw that you gave some space between two words....

    All right, I'll give that a shot and report back, thanks a lot.

    Check my screenshot....

    becoz i gave some space for computer name...check it below..

    <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="NonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

    </Themes>
    </component>

    Yes, that fixed it ;)

    Still trying to iron some other oddities out, I'll keep you updated then. Thanks a lot.
