Glad it worked for you

@Droppo

you are most welcome and I hope you post your log.

@aldinof

Thanks for yor feedback

btw i can built ISO with 7cust. v 030 but there's no progress bar.... so i thougt 7cust hang... about ± 2 min. there's pop up say 'bla...bla... OK'.

It shows you the progress in the command window

@nice_guy75

As urie said, you could find it in windows\system32 or you could reinstall WAIK for windows 7

@avnerk

I'd like to ask:

in the reg.reg file, how do u map the keys to

HKLM\7user

HKLM\7soft

HKLM\7system

7user is the default user settings

7soft is the image's HKLM\software

7system is the image's HKLM\system

if for instance I find a key in my registry that I want to put inside reg.reg

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International]

how would it look like in reg.reg?

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\7user\Control Panel\International]

I've managed to add some lines to the reg.reg file that do work, but some don't.

Maybe you could try again now or you could post them and I will try to resolve your problem

Thanks man for your feedback and tweaks

Regards

I'm attaching those that don't seem to work

and BTW, how do u find these tweaks?

What I do is run a program called Install Watch, that takes a snapshot of HKLM, than I change the wanted settings, and take another sanpshot, and it finds keys that have changed. Is there a better or faster way to do it?

Thanks again

avnerk

EDIT:

the 'time format' tweak from the "tweaks that don't work" file does work. It didn't work in VM but did work on an install.

Google is your friend :D

For example, to disable the "low disk space check" I google for "low disk space check registry".

Thanks for your feedback and I will report back.

@wbit

you are most welcome

If i understud blue, you must change this values from:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\7user\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]

to:

[7soft\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]

Nope.

Let me break everything for you:

There are two registries.

1. The image registry you want to modify

2. Your windows registry.

To edit the image registry, we need to load it inside your windows registry. To do this we use a program called reg.exe

Inside your windows registry there is a key called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

Inside this key we load the image registry. I loaded like this

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\7user (Represents the image's registry of default user)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\7soft (Represents the image's registry of HKLM\Software)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\7system (Represents the image's registry of HKLM\System)

So if we have a tweak like this:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International]

We need to access your windows registry first and then the image's registry.

So it will be like this

Note: HKEY_CURRENT_USER will point to the default user.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\7user\Control Panel\International]

To sum up the process:

1. Load the image's registry inside your windows registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

2. modify the image's registry and then unload it.

You might ask: Why you load the image's registry inside my Windows registry?

The answer is: The registry is a binary file and I can not edit it directly. So the best way to edit it contents that I load it in your windows registry and then I can easily modify the values.

I hope this clarified everything if you have a question feel free to ask.

Hi Blue,

i have tested your new version. It looks very good, but i haven't installed it yet.

Nice to hear, that you work together with StefanRTR (his proggi: WinIntegrator) from the german-winlite-forum.

Adding the screen size in the unattended.xml would be very fine.

Hi (sorry for my english), where i cand found the necesary tools to run 7customizer???

I need ImageX, Dism, and Oscdimg for Windows 7 x64 Home premium in Spanish.

I downloaded FOUR times the WAIK for windows 7 here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...11-39c26d3b3b34

(i downloaded in english and spanish and into the iso don't exist any dism, or imagex or any tool!!)

after, i downloaded too the Waik for vista from the same site... to see if in this iso exist the tools... but NO!

so... where i can download the tools please?

thanks, Bye.

Thanks for the presets addition. Saves a lot of time.

I was testing 0.3.1 today and got a bsod on two installations on VM.

post-159190-1260660644_thumb.jpg

I've been trying some new tweaks, using the same method as I was doing lately, namely - I would edit reg.reg as soon as 7customize created it.

It worked fine before. maybe something in the new tweaks I'm testing is causing it.

The bsod pops up after about 2/3 into the installation.

I'm attaching log.txt, autounattend.xml and reg.reg

This program only seems to work without problems with the English version of Windows 7.

Only i can do in spanish version is a unatended installation... nothing more, I can't add updates, no service tweaks, no start tweaks or other tweaks, all tweaks point to EN-US folders and it gives me an error that those directories can't be found.

it's a miracle why i can make an unatended version...

ok so... people, IMHO, do NOT download this program if you don't have an English Windows 7 version please.

And please, to the creator of the program, i wait for a more versions compatibility, thanks for the job! bye.

How about you just calm down and use proper language. The OP is doing his best to help all but you have to be patient and give him all the info what doesn't work and what does, you can even debug the whole situation step by step with the OP.

You have been warned, don't do this again...

@jamesbebby

I think the unattended part is just used for automating the setup and should be as simple and minimal to achieve automated setup. However, I might look it in future releases.

@pedilover

yup. stefanRTR is a nice and helpful guy.

@mickmack

if you read the first post you will see that there is already a to do list and there is already a list of implemented features and a list of implemented features that needs testing.

@avnerk

I did not include any new tweaks since v0.2.5. So it might be some tweaks you added to reg.reg. Anyways, try not to rush things with tweaks. As I told you tweaks will come every release or two and I can not resolve problems that was caused by adding your own tweaks.

Regards
