  1. Thanks Gosh, you were giving good answers 5+ years ago (that I know of) and you still are today.
  2. Why can't you just combine all 3. If its smallest size you are after. Nah, the extreme one is the smallest, of course.
  3. How can you also include the anti-virus right click option? I have the silent install working a treat by extracting the files and running that command to install: CFPCONFG.EXE -i -s At last a proper silent install without all that AutioIt stuff! BUT I don't have any right click option to scan files and folders. I am looking in the registry to see if I can make a reg tweak for it. EDIT: No need for a reg tweak just register the cavshell.dll thats in the COMODO folder and its there, easy.
  4. Did anyone find out why Vista constantly reboots? I am getting the exact same problem, but on Vista SP2 (x86). I am quite sure it is because I removed "winsxs (Component Cache)" and also, added hotfixes. I can: Add hotfixes and not remove the winsxs stuff Remove the winsxs stuff and not add hotfixes I cannot: Add hotfixes and remove winsxs
  5. Quack. What are "feathers"?
  6. I am also eventually going to have a big bat file to remove stuff. So you mean its like "dllcache" was in XP? Always gets me that you could just put a corrupt/edited/nasty version of a file in the dllcache and it would restore that copy to system32, or is that true, I can't remember. It came up with blue text as well that folder, very special!
  7. No I cleared out the Backup folder ages ago, these are the winsxs folders themselves.
  8. How come about 80Mb was taken off the ISO then? Then another 100Mb or so from removing more folders still? Some might be hard links showing size to them where there is none, but others are certainly files.
  9. Has anyone come up with any kind of a list for the folders its safe to remove from winsxs yet? I don't know why Microsoft can't just give them names you can understand. Why do the folders have overly complicated names, for example: x86_microsoft-windows-grouppolicy-base_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_27f9b80248563b76 Why isn't it just called: x86_grouppolicy-base_001_6.1.7600.16385_none_001 ??? Why all the massive numbers? 31bf3856ad364e35? 27f9b80248563b76? Why THOSE numbers! Do we have billions upon billions upon billions of files? Nope. So then why does it have 31bf3856ad364e35 part w
  10. Nope. Check your disk space, maybe theres not enough space to mount the WIM.
  11. The problem is we are using a program made to reduce the size of Windows Vista... on Windows 7. For example, vLite says in "Users/Public" there are over 400Mb of media files. Maybe on Vista thats true, but in Windows 7 these files amount to only 41Mb not 400Mb. vLite says the Speech Support components takes up 450Mb. Maybe on Vista thats true, but in Windows 7 the Speech folder in Windows is merely 172Mb, not over 450Mb. Will there ever be a tool like vLite but for Windows 7? If not then I am not using vLite because I do not even know what it is removing anymore. Totally unrelated things break
  12. Maybe applying the tweak to "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT" like we used to on XP (at the early stage from cmdlines.txt) could work, but in Windows 7 where is the equivelant of "cmdlines.txt" ??? I already tried to make it run from the unattended XML with a <FirstLogonCommand> to run it but nothing changed, it did nopt have Quick Launch. Kel made a Quick Launch enabler CAB file addon for nLite but I have never seen one for Vista and now, the Taskbar in Windows 7 is different anyway, even to Vista. On XP though, all you did was set the Taskbar up, reboot, then export a certain reg key, change the "
  13. Anyone? I tried putting this in the Autounattend.xml between </OOBE> and </component> <FirstLogonCommands> <SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add"> <Order>1</Order> <CommandLine>%systemroot%\Install\QL.cmd</CommandLine> </SynchronousCommand> </FirstLogonCommands> QL.cmd is a simple batch file that just runs a registry file like so: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop] "TaskbarWinXP"=hex:0c,00,00,00,08,00,00,00
  14. Oh god. I put setup.exe back in the sources folder but its giving me that error again about not finding the driver. It worked the other day when I did the same thing - now it doesn't again. Yes I did the install_tweak and I also removed packages first before I used vLite and I removed "Manual Install (setup.exe)" in vLite. Says driver not found but I already made a rough one a few days ago where it works, why! EDIT: Ignore me I was accidentally using setup.exe from the root of the DVD as opposed to the one from the sources folder, both are totally different! This is the same mistake as the oth
  15. It seems near-impossible to have Quick Launch with the divider, enabled upon installation, on Windows 7. Its classed as a "Toolbar" just like in Vista and XP! But exporting "TaskbarWinXP" hex from the "Streams" key (like in XP) doesn't work in 7. I wish they made this for Windows 7. I posted my own long winded post asking really the same, how to enable it so you don't have to do anything manually. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=136570
