Using VLite for SBS2008 installation


Recommended Posts

Has anyone sucessfully use vLite on an Small Business Server 2008 (SBS2008 / SBS 2008) installation?

I can't see any posts on this...

I have just tried...vLite appears to identify the installer (SERVERSBSSTANDARD, 64-BIT and Version number)...

but then it gives an unhandled exception saying: 'The input string was not in a correct format' (details below).

If I continue, it just hangs...

Thanks

Mark

************** JIT Debugging **************

To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

application or computer (machine.config) must have the

jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.

The application must also be compiled with debugging

enabled.

For example:

<configuration>

<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer

rather than be handled by this dialog box.

why do you want to do this? vLite doesn't officially support Server 2008 Editions.

The reason I could think of for this is that some of us use Server 2008 because it kicks Vista's butt in performance and power. It would be kind of nice to be able to create an unnattended DVD to reinstall server every time I break it...

no, Vista SP1 and Server 2008 share the same kernel and the minimal performance improvement results by the disabled services in Server 20008.
