Windows 7 x64 vLite "extreme removal"


Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

Hi to all. I've been watching this topic since it started, and yesterday I faced a new problem. I wanted to install Expression Web 3 which requires NET 3.5 SP1 to be installed. If I try to run the installer from microsoft website it keeps telling me that I must install Net Framework 3.5 SP1 from Windows Features, but in Control Panel > Programs > Windows Features, it not appears. Using my batch script, I removed from install.wim the following packages.

Question: Is there any of these packages known as they are breaking NET Framework 3.0 or 3.5 ????

Thank you.

Is it really worth giving this a try? Not that Jeronimo didn't do great work, but this is still based for the larger part on the actual component removal by vLite, and to be honest I have rarely had a completely successful go with vLite on Win7. Especially stuff like .NET being broken even though I didn't remove any of its components (neither through the batch-file not through vLite). I think it would be nice to shift focus to a new approach, i.e. leaving vLite behind when it comes to Win7. RT Seven Lite seems to be on the right track in all this, though still in beta, it's doing a more than decent job.

We've already got tools and threads for this all over the forums. Also, you seem to be looking for help on this in multiple other topics - it might be wise to, instead of spamming about the forum, be more precise in your postings, and search before posting. These questions have been asked before - if you need something more specific, feel free to ask. However, up until now all of your questions are a little to vague (or have already been answered / discussed here), so please be a little more industrious before asking for help in the future. Thank you.

Would this method work with Windows 7 SP1 too? :unsure:


I am willing to do this with Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit.

Will it still work or not? :unsure:

You just need to make sure you make your install.wim workable with vLite first as outlined in this thread, before using this method...

hello, anyone care to do it for windows 8.1 as well. I want to make usb thumbdrive with it and only have 4Gb (meaning something along the 3,75 GB) size thumbs and recent windows iso stick its foot-thumb out of its shoe so to speak regarding their size. I dont feel like buying other bigger usb drives though they are cheap.

I will gladly dump fat from tat install also.
