Hell the last version released does not include waik. nLite will prolly never include waik anymore. I think MS pulled an autopatcher on Nuhi!

No they didn't but best is to be careful. Why would we risk if you can backup those files on your own.

Run vLite once with the WAIK installed and then backup the vLite folder, it will have all you need in the future, just install over it.

Yes, please get rid of that utterly useless waik as it is trash software! :realmad: It's NOT compatible with Win2K3 Server & Win Vista x64 too.

You don't quite get it.

vLite is based on it. vLite will not work without it. It has been stated to grab the previous version of vLite and install it first as it still has the needed WAIK file. MS is going aroung KILLING apps that redistribute their software so just grab the needed file from the last version and keep it handy.

Somewhere in this really long thread the file is named as wimgapi.dll <-- Thats the only file you need.

Quoting Nuhi:

Some of you will be annoyed by the new WAIK download but I had to do it, or so they tell me.

You can install this vLite version over the old one and it will work without the fatty download. So backup the v1.1.6 before I remove it from the site.

Actually, you also need the wimfltr folder vLite creates in Program Files\vLite after you install the WAIK. These folders contain the actual filter drivers vLite needs to mount the WIM files.

I don't get it.

What is all this trash talk about "WAIK"? I haven't even heard of WAIK outside of this forum, haven't needed it with vLite, haven't used it, and I certainly haven't downloaded it.

What has people in such an uproar about this WAIK nonsense?

nLite/vLite = used by a lot of people who like to strip everything down to the very strict minimum required for it to even run (the main 2 reasons being: getting that extra 1 fps in games, and lower disk usage even though disk space is like 15 cents a GB nowadays -- or that's what it seems like to me at least). And WAIK is a large download. That pretty much sums it up I guess. (I don't use either personally)
