  1. @Alanoll, you don't even have installed Framework by default, now that's personal @XtremeMaC, good, i'll contact you when program proves stable @Markymoo, better think nLite, expecially Manual Install option, it removes everything what's not needed if you boot from cd (same as gosh's method but all i did was parsing mdmssys.inf, and of course keeping some of listed files) There is a forbiden files list, i take those by reading all files in corelist.inf and some manual entries to prevent nLite from deleting crucial files.
  2. @Markymoo, fixed. @XtremeMaC, i hope you don't run into any problems @Alanoll, I agree, it's too big for a runtime, but when i compared code in c++ and c#, i gave up on c++, but if Framework support shows as a problem I can transport it into c++ within week or two, but lets not be hasty. For starters good night, it's 5:30 in the morning on my side of the planet edit: @hinet, i donloaded your file, thanx, but i'll look into it later, now i gotta go, check for update in 24 hours.
  3. @Markymoo, great, thanx for the report, i know what's the problem. It's the display.inf file, i'm going to remove it from parse list, it contains basic display drivers which we all update on install.
  4. @edmoncu, it will work just fine. If you encounter any file missing just look in nlite.log in what section it was and don't select it next time.
  5. @Alanoll, ok, concerning syssetup, i know it's signed, probably check calls are in syssetup.dll but it's out of my league for now. Infs are listed in there but without label, there is for example just [DeviceInfsToInstall] section with a bunch of infs which don't mean anything if i don't group them by names and put couple of them under certain driver group. Edit: Chris Lee, thanx for translation hinet, try again without any Language Support option and if it failes again just send me your txtsetup.sif file after the reduction (located in i386 directory). You can send it to nuhi (at) softhome (d
  6. Alanoll, if you look at it like that than it's the same. Tried hacking syssetup.inf but without luck. Don't think that i'm not giving credit where credit is due, i thougt about it and came to conclusion that we all know from where files are getting copied from and i didn't took a single line from his batches. hinet, you could translate it to me, but it looks like you are using some language files i deleted. Try not to touch Language Support.
  7. @Alanoll, inf list in manually written for every program because there is no section in windows installation for that, some of them have few infs named completely differently. So, there is an inf file list, then it parses through those infs and generates file list of used files in that inf, that totaly dynamic, there is no file list like in jdoebeck's batches, that was a tricky part but it works. I don't know what means based on jdoebeck's batches, if you think that i too replace [DefaultInstall] rows with blanks than yes Couple of new components introduced in sp2 are added only if sp2 is det
  8. If I understood you right, yes you can make ISO however you want, as you can see from screenshot it's your choice. After reduction it stops and asks for ISO creation.
  9. This thread is old, refer to website for more recent info. Visit webpage for latest updates and downloads, this topic contains outdated information. ---- Here is a thing i've been working on. Mainly, it's a little bit of a slipstreamer, customizer, reducer and iso creator all in one package. Works for every version of Windows XP installation, so far tested up to slipsteamed SP2 build 2144. To avoid confusion, this is for pre-installation, not like XPlite which is post installation customizer. It's written in .NET so you will need Framework to run it. Quick overview (download below): 1. Slipstr
  10. I think that usual user just clicks "next/logon" without watching additional options because they got something else on mind, so he/she will be most pleased when next time logs on automatically with a feeling that big brother is watching.
  11. Cool, and you can remove backup files with this one.
  12. Copy all files from Program Files\Ffdshow and settings from registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GNU\ffdshow and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\GNU\ffdshow (for example in settings.reg) Then apply by batches: regsvr32.exe /s "%SystemDrive%\Program Files\Ffdshow\ffdshow.ax" regedit /s settings.reg
  13. For those of you testing SP2 build 2120, just a little warning. I found those two lines in my registry tweaks collection that don't work on that build. Regedit reports processes are opened and can't apply the changes. But still everything else got applied, it just skipped these with a warning. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system] "DisableStatusMessages"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system] "NoInternetOpenWith"=dword:00000001
  14. Disable Offline Files [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache] "SyncAtLogon"=dword:00000000 "SyncAtLogoff"=dword:00000000 "NoReminders"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache] "Enabled"=dword:00000000
  15. Did you removed OOBE, i get that if OOBE is removed but syssetup.dll not hacked. So if you removed OOBE with my script or manual you need to hack syssetup.dll.
  16. What version do you use...newest beta 5 blocks mine net too. Revert to stable 4.5 If you are using 4.5 then uninstall all firewalls you have installed, restart, install Zonealarm 4.5 and apply default rules when it asks you, reboot and report
  17. @farte, Winrar is easier and you only gain couple of mb using 7zip. Make a batch file with notepad, lets say setup.cmd containing unattended command for installation of office, mine is: start setup.exe TRANSFORMS=setup.mst /qb- (where setup.mst is your mst file) Make self-extracting exe with winrar and go to sfx-advanced options, set it up to run a batch file (setup.cmd) after decompresion in temporary folder(there is an option for that). And set it up to overwrite files and hide start dialog. Now you should have one exe file which installs office with just double clicking it.
  18. Reinstall windows and run shrinked copy of office, it will report missing files, then you see in which directories they are in. Or use VirtualPC or VMWare like me.
  19. @squallgreg, yes, that's about right, because some runtimes being left behind even after uninstallation. Maybe there can be a solution provided by you, just reinstall windows and make notes which directories are needed, i think they were mainly in MSShared folder...then it will not be difficult to instruct them to copy that after shrinking. (of course there was some other folders but i bet they are standard for every installation) edit: maybe this is buckeyeXP's job
  20. Did you even bother looking in dedicated thread here. I think only that one is missing.
  21. @buckeyeXP, it seems that it stops only after bigger files are being copied and when it waits to long for automatic "retry". Small files are warping without any problem, as long as retry window don't wait to long. Maybe some latency that you put for waiting next file, and if there is none (or waiting to long) it thinks that it's over ?
  22. @farte, with installed Excel, Word, Outlook and newest updates its 125 office + 15MB updates...all compressed with 7zip in self-extracting unattended installation makes that 47MB ! @squallgreg, this script/proggy is reading from installation only needed files and copies them separatelly for specific msp file. In order to enduce installation you need to uninstall office but even then some system files will be allready installed and next time you reinstall windows you'll need to run shrink one more time to fill up the holes.
  23. Disable Microsoft Office Customer Improvement Program Tray Icon in Office 2003: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Common] "QMEnable"=dword:00000000
