The meaning of "some" Components...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Since I'm currently busy making my first Automated windowsXP DVD and I also don't want to install unessesairy stuff (like MSN and games and what not). So I looked at the Components list in the [Components] list section of the tutorial. But i can figure some out, but there are a lot of wich i don't know waht they mean, or wether it's possible (or advisible) to turn em off.

Here is a list of components;

The blue ones are components where i'm just guessing what they mean, or what someone told me they believed it was. :rolleyes:

The red ones are Components where i'm pretty sure about the meaning, and probably will turn off during install.

The green color means that i'm probably going to turn these components off during the install If some of them aren't advisivble to turn off, please do tell.

I Also found a file from microsoft wich makes it all more complicated, becouse there are a lot of components in here that aren't listed. The file can be found HERE.

And seems like the component "msmsgs = off" isn't listed at the reference page made by DaveXP.

So the $ 1.000.000 question is, What do these components mean and is it advisible to turn them off? If you do know one of em, be kind and post the answer, (i'll try and keep the list up to date...) Thanks!

*Disclaimer: This is my first post (and thread), I've searched the site for the explanations and also google and another tech forum, but can't seem to find an answer to this question. The only topic with a similar question is This topic. But diden't help me much further either.

the xxxAccess things (IEAccess and so on) arent switches for the programs but for their shortcuts in startmenu, quicklaunch etc.

b4 u do anything else

most of those components are already turned off

so unless otherwise said in winnt.sif they won't get installed

that's just a long list of stuff u can include

average user don't use most of them...

those iis stuff u probably don't need (they're off)

instead do this it might give u more meaning on those components

go to windows\inf folder

then find

sysoc.inf

open it with notepad

go to edit

go to replace

type hide in "find what"

and leave the replace with blank

save it

then go to add/remove programs

open up windows components

now u shall see those components...

AccessOpt = On Accessibility Wizard? Nope, acc wizard AND cursors

Dialer = On Network Diallers??? nope, its the phone dialer

OEAccess = On Outlook Express? just the shortcut to it

WMAccess = On Windows Media internet accessability? Nope, its the shortcut to win messenger

why don't you just look em up yourself

findstr /i /c:COMPONENTNAME %WINDIR%\INF\*.INF

that should give you the filename where the component is defined. Look in there for more info.

Hmm, the file above seems to be incomplete.

Grab the full one here

I have to add that not all of these options will work for you. Some such as System Restore and Accessibility Tools are based on custom infs by gosh and others are based upon custom infs by myself.
