How to use nLite with Windows 7


Recommended Posts

Hi. I am a new user to nlite and have already done a few XP discs. I am having problems getting nlite to work with the Windows 7RC.

I have extracted all files from the iso I downloaded and when I try to run nlite, I get an error telling me I need to find the i386 or AMD64 folder. These do not exist though :(.

What do I need to do in order to create an nlite iso with the RC7?

Thanks for your help.

nLite is for Win XP.

Download and use vLite.

From my experience, do not remove manual install.exe or attempt to do an unattended set-up.

Have fun.

I must be doing something wrong because I keep getting an error message that the file format is incorrect. This happens when I try 7RC and Vista 64bit. Haven't tried my Vista 32bit yet.

Anyone tell me if it works with 64bit? Cheers :)


Ok. It appears that an uninstall-re-install of vlite did the trick.

Thanks guys :)
