  1. I see this question a lot.

    In Win 7, 7.9 is the highest score. (5.9 in Vista) Comparing Vista to Win 7 scores is comparing apples and oranges and fig newtons.

    You can run the WEI test in the command prompt by running the following command: winsat disk


    Compare in Vista and 7, if they are close then you didn't lose any performance. Since Win 7 has a higher max score, your score is going to be lower in Win 7.

  2. It shouldn't be hard to add Win 7 compatibility to vLite, is it? Instead of building an entirely new program. nuhi couldn't add Vista support to nLite because 2000/XP/2003 have completely different installation routines as well as just plain being too different.

    I am shifting to removing nothing except Manual Install and tweaking services to disabled to avoid compatibility problems and broken stuff, but until '7lite' is released or vLite adds 7 support, I wouldn't trust it to just tweak services.

  3. I had no problems vLiting a Vista 64-bit source on XP 32-bit or Vista 32-bit. I'm unsure why you couldn't.

    ; vLite preset file



    ; vLite v1.2

    ; Framework 2.0.50727.1434

    ; Microsoft Windows NT 6.0.6001 Service Pack 1 32-bit



    ; Windows Vista BUSINESS 64-bit Service Pack 1

    ; Version 6.0.6001.18000 English (United States)



  4. You should be able to do this via autounattend.xml as well. Add oemlogo.bmp to \Sources\$OEM$\$$\System32\oemlogo.bmp on your DVD.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    processorArchitecture="amd64" for 64-bit Vista.

  5. Those compressed files aren't referenced in dosnet.inf or txtsetup.sif.

    There are newer remote desktop files on the disk that are used. Example, mstscax.dl_ was replaced with lhmstscax.dl_, but lhmstscax.dl_ is still extracted as mstscax.dll. mstscax.dl_ is obsolete. Plugin.ocx was made obsolete in a security update released for SP2 (KB912945).

    mmc.chm is extracted from mmcS.ch_.

  6. You don't need one from someone else, you can go through it and decide what removals or tweaks work for you & your system.

  7. The keys students (usually technology department students) receive are through MSDNAA, they are retail keys w/ a different EULA and require activation.

    nuhi doesn't even allow nLite for commercial purpose, does he?

    1. nLite is freeware and can be freely used for any personal non-commercial purposes, subject to the following restrictions.
    And VLK isn't licensed to individuals buying for just one or couple of computers.

    IMHO, bad idea anyway for company desktops.. just don't do it.

  8. Still every time you install a hotfix, it has to install a zillion other copies of the same file? If files are being counted more than once, you still lose that space since it appears none of the utilities can handle links correctly/not include them.

  9. Well, it doesn't do anything by itself, it's a registry hive.

    Open the Services snap-in, and see if in the "Log On As" column there are any services set to run with the account. Additionally, see if maybe the user is logged in remotely (may see this in Task Manager).

  10. The ntuser.dat is the profile's HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry hive, cuz you know, each account has their own HKEY_CURRENT_USER. If a user is logged in, the file is loaded, and when you load a file in Windows, it becomes locked and you can't delete it while it's in use. So to delete a profile folder, you have to be logged off of that account.

    The folder will be recreated when the user logs in again. It will not delete the account, you have to use Local Users and Groups snap-in (locally) or Active Directory snap-in (domain account).

  11. Also you might be confused about the path to the file. In XP it's:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows\UsrClass.dat.LOG

    But still, if the account is logged in you can't delete it.
