Windows 7 x64 vLite "extreme removal"

Recommended Posts


Jeronimo can you help at all with that batch file problem I was having? (It was a few pages ago, it was like help.zip)

I just need to make it a user-selection deal so all those batch files can be wrapped into an EXE file for easier use :)

I guess I'll just write a newer guide for your latest guide for now... I'll see how practical for removal_custom is for beginners, I'll make it optional maybe. Oh well thanks for all your work, I'll start work on a GUI as soon as my schedule gets sorted out. lol.

hi i have a question.

i removed (vlite) some languages (Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese) from the source and successfully installed Win7 x86.

Now, how do i reinstall back the removed languages back?

@cybpsych: within Ultimate you can perform the langpack action on the online-installation if you have the language pack. Otherwise you can not.

As soon as I update my thread with a newer tut, I was thinking about adding some Youtube videos to go with it :)

I think that all the guides available are reasonably easy to follow, though.

hmmm theres something i really don't understand here.... you see before you do the removal cleanup, you must take ownership in every files that be going to cleanup, to do that you must use takeown and icalcs to take ownership of the files but theres no command executing the takeownship before the cleanup... so thats why i'm having an error that is access denied. So guys how do you do cleanup without taking ownership of the winsxs folder. is their any simpler way to do this?

@Jeronimo. I was having issues removing the "IE Optionals Package" saying something like check arguments are correct but I fixed it by copying the details from sausagehacks batch file :)

what is the relationship between columns in the packages.xls?

Packages, Microsoft-Windows-Client-Features-Package & Other vLite components?

i dont really see clear relationship between Desktop_Shell-GettingStarted-NoWindowsLive-Package, Character Map & Accessibility.

and whats the meaning of N-Edition? if removal is blank it means i cannot remove? vLite means i remove it in vLite? and DISM means i remove it ibn DISM?

@mena_mon: normally I would agree, but this guide is more or less commanline stuff. It is provided as is, images will not be added

@gendouhydeist: I have performed dozens of these removal actions on 4 or 5 different builds and never did I need to take ownership of the files.

@Junior2613: you are correct, I updated the removal batch file

@iceangel89:

packages is what you get from dism

Microsoft-Windows-Client-Features-Package is a package that onvolves a lot of vLite-components

Other vlite components are those components in vLite that I can not link to a package

The 4 columns are related (per record), the last 2 need to be seen seperate

N-edition is a "European"-edition without IE, WMP and such.

Blank means I keep the packages for certain reasons (not removable, required)

vLite mean removed by vLite with my preset, dism means removed in my removal batch-file.

Hope this clears things up.

@Jeronimo. The cleanup seems to work properly now I get 3 messages saying "operation completed successfully" but a 4th message appears saying could not find "*.*mid" but it doesn't seems serious atleast I hope not :)

@Junior2613: No that is no issue, the removal might be better to check if the files exists before performing the actual removal, but it is fine for me as it is.

On a side note: I do not think vLite will get a successor from nuhi as both his domains are down (nliteos.com and vlite.net).

edit: guess I was wrong, read here.

@Jeronimo

hmm really strange huh?? i still need to take ownership first before doing the cleanup thing, do you think it has something to do with my filesystem priveledges or and admin priveledges.
