Here's the update: http://cid-fdbde48fe.../Swedish044.lng

Translated more and corrected spellingerror but i still havent translated everything like "Resolve broken shortcut".

Ill try get it translate asap :)

Thanks I will included in the next release.

Edit:How's it going on component/feature removal?

Everything progressing smoothly. I should have finished it earlier but I was busy.

@ nerd-light

thx for the great work and great program

like many others this is the hottest point for me on your todo list:

An option to set the Users folder location, program files locations and other folders.

because i have an ssd for os, so i want to spread heavy write folders on other disks

You are most welcome

@ pedilover

Hi Blue,

which components do you want to remove first ?

On Twitter you have posted that you have removed one component. Which was ist ? I am very inquisitive, you know ?

Regards

What I am concentrating on is not the components but how to remove them.

The first component I worked on is Natural Languages (x86 and x64) and it worked fine.

@ RickSteele

Using 7Customizer on a modified Windows 7 Enterprise source for a DELL Inspiron 1720 installed without any issues whatsoever-perfect!

Regards,

Rick

Thanks for the feedback.

@ sjoerdhooft

Did you tried to install Win7 manually with your key?

@ grabben @burn

How could you install 64bit in virtualbox ? :/
install virtualbox on a x64 host and you can install x64 guests in virtualbox :whistle:

You could also test an x64 guest on a x86 host. I think you need to enable the processor visualization (Intel-VT for Intel or AMD-V for AMD) if your processor support it (I think most of the core series support this).

Regards

Thank you so much Grabben.

oscdimg.exe -b<path to etfsboot.com> -u2 -h -m -l<ISOLabel> <path to dvd> <path to save .iso>

This command works perfectly. I tried this command to create an ISO file, burn to dvd disc, it worked.

I also try to use ISO feature of 7Customizer, but it gave error during the setup.

I combine 7Customizer and the guide "Put Windows 7 on USB key", the setup runs faster than comparing run setup from DVD disc.

I want to share this guide on this forum, but I do not know how.

Bout oscdimg.

Just go to start > programs > windows aik > deployments.. and paste this

oscdimg.exe -b<path to etfsboot.com> -u2 -h -m -l<ISOLabel> <path to dvd> <path to save .iso>

oscdimg -bE:\dvd\boot\etfsboot.com -u2 -h -m -l7cDVD E:\dvd E:\7Cdvd.iso

Did you tried to install Win7 manually with your key?

Yeah, I tried and worked like a charm. It's almost like the key is only valid for a manual install and not for an unattended... I'm totally clueless... :(

hi blue

new translate for brazilian

0.4.4

http://www.mediafire.com/?o4rdjudnmmf

Thanks I will include it in the next release.

OK. I have two questions for you.

What is the edition you are customizing?

What is the edition you bought?

I think you are customizing an edition that your serial does not match it.

For example you cannot take a serial for home basic and use it for home premium.

I hope that helps.

Regards

Both professional... And it works with a manual install so there's no mismatch...

Hello!

Which is the software you use to burn your ISO file made by 7Customizer?

I didn't burn it but used the ISO file in VMware...

Hello

I remember it happens to me one time - with the valid and correct key - but I don't really remember the reason !

You can try to make a new ISO file, but before deleete all the files inside the folder "work" except: mount; Themes; bootorder.txt; etfsboot.com; EXTRACT.EXE (originals files and folders).

And at the section: unattend; write inside all fields, because if you live some fields blank, setup may fail.

I hope that will help you
