7Customizer - a Windows 7 Customization and Deployment tool

Recommended Posts

The developer of this/anyone else might want to check out Windows Embedded Standard 2011 if you want more tricks on slimming it down.

It is (at this stage) essentially Windows 7. It will quite likely remain the basis of MANY hidden computers for a long long time.

From a quick play, it looks rather good.

Some wishes for the next version:

1. Automatic great capitals when you put in the key

2. To drop a selected driver (when a selcted driver is not able to be deselected again)

3. Make ISO (until now i use vlite to create ISO

Your tool is great. Go on!!

1. I will implement this in the next release

2. This is already planned in a future release.

3. This was planned for 0.2.x release but I postponed it to a future release

Thanks for the suggestion

@Ringthane

I hope it works for you and will wait for your feedback.

@TheWalrus

I think since 7Customizer now has many functionality , presets became an important function. So I think it will be implemented in 0.3.x release.

I just wanted to thank you for your continued work on this program. I just successfully used it to slipstream some updates, and everything went flawlessly.

I'm looking forward to checking this thread in a month or so to see what sort of new features have been implemented, and to read of all the bugs that you've patched.

Great work! Your efforts are much appreciated! Thanks again!

Its definitly a supergreat work, so huge thumbs up :)!

I think we can contribute to this, by gathering tweaks etc, so he doesnt have to do all the work by himself, even tho it might not be so much hard work do find them byself but still:P.

What we definitly can do and are doing.. testing 7C as much as we can and reporting back to him.

Edit: I shouldve used this program to costumize my win7 dvd when i was about to reinstall my computer, but i was p***ed and unfortunately i didnt think of this:/

Glad it worked for you. It would be helpful if you have posted your log file.

Anyways you are welcome and thanks for your feedback.

@tcntad

Thanks man for your help. As you mentioned it is not hard to find tweaks for Windows. I think now it is the suggestions time until 0.2.x release is done.

Yea definitly:)

I think it might be easier if we contribute as much as we can, coming up with ideas and so on, even if we may not have the skills to do the c# work ourself.

I unfortunately get some kind of error with dism (havent read the dism.log yet), i made my choices: 7 ultimate 32bit, languagepack, updates, drivers, unattanded and pressed apply but i realized that it would take to long to stay up all night and press enter whenever it requested me to do so so i aborted it and earlier today when i decided to go custom, it didnt want me to.. i got the error..

Maybe its possible for you to deal with that? so that i/we dont have to press enter or "any key" to continue with the integration, maybe setup somethin so it will do it automatically either at once or maybe after a few seconds?

Ill be back with the log soon

This happened because you chose the debug mode. Just uncheck the debug mode and it will be fine

Hmm really ?

Im not sure wether i checked the debug mode, but thanks ill take a look at that:)

Edit: This is ****** up.. I mounted and extracted win7 to "f:\7costumiser\dvd", did what i did earlier (tweaks, updates, LPs unattended) and when pressing apply it says it doesnt support a vista rtm ? what the hell?

Im ceirtan i extracted the win7 iso, it even says windows 7 when i run the setup.exe ..

Ideas ?

A really nice feature to include would be the ability to integrate/slipstream .cab files! The .msu integration has worked flawlessly for me. However, all of the LocalPacks that are available for Windows 7 are .cab files, and 7customizer is unable to integrate them.

A couple other tools allegedly integrate .cab files (stefanRTR's WinIntegrator, Legolash2o's Windows7Toolkit, and George King's Update.exe). These might provide insight into enabling .cab file integration.

Ah back once again...

The integration takes notime at all, indicating there is an error somewhere and i dont know why.. The logfile (7costumizer\work\) seems ok but im not sure bout dism.log.. i dont understand any of it im afraid :P but ill upload it anyway

Is it suppose to only take a few seconds to integrate approx. 240 MByte ? When it earlier took much longer ?

Maybe its just me :P

Thanks in advance!:)

Edit: I confirmed it.. 7C only creates the unattended file.. but doesnt integrate LP nor winupdates :/

Man you do not have to curse and swear like a kid. Just take it easy. Anyways, if you have trouble with dism just reinstall it aqnd extract your iso again.

@radigast

7Customizers already integrates .cab files.

@tcntad

Edit: I confirmed it.. 7C only creates the unattended file.. but doesnt integrate LP nor winupdates :/

What do you mean?

It is already confirmed that 7Customizer integrates languages and updates. If you have trouble just enable debug mode and see what is going on.
