What Not To Remove For Some Programs

Recommended Posts


The latest version(s) of iTunes (7.6) requires the following files (Windows\System32):

sccbase.dll

sccsccp.dll

slbcsp.dll

slbiop.dll

and also:

wmasf.dll

wmidx.dll

Thanks to the MSFN user from this thread:

Another user in the same thread says that newer versions of iTunes require the SmartCard service.

Toshiba Power Saver/LG Power Management/Dell Power Management (and most probably other power management tools for various laptops)

UPS Service.

It need be added:

Recent versions of iTunes now crash if Smart Card support is removed. Don't remove it if you like your iTunes. I no longer do after my iPod was lost, so woohoo! ;)

edit: That's funny, I searched this thread for iTunes and the last post didn't come up. Sigh. Search fail.

Question: how can you find out what components are needed for a program?

By testing it!

"Trial and error!" :)

Program : Windows Search

File : WindowsSearch-KB940157-Srv2K3_XP-x64-enu.exe

Install will not start if Terminal services is removed with nlite (v1.4.5.5) apparently.

Program asks for something like "Please make sure Terminal services is started before installation".

Tested on real install, not vmware.

update: i did a reinstall same settings, but this time around kept Terminal Services. Installation went flawless, so that confirms it imho.

I'm guessing lazy coders use more and more of microsoft services and components, then less and less stuff can be removed and you end up with tons of bloat you can't get rid of = higher system requirements = more computers purchased = more money for micro$oft = more trash for the environment. Currently I run services for my xpcd and all my computer support clients at this configuration:

Toshiba Power Saver/LG Power Management/Dell Power Management (and most probably other power management tools for various laptops)

UPS Service.

If you messed up like me and removed this service aswell you can manually instal it even after XP is installed, you are going to need an XP disc wich has it on though:

Needed to do this after I found out my HP printer drivers wouldn't install because that was missing...

Huh? That is the Smart Card Service, not the UPS service. By the way, the Smart Card service is NOT needed for HP Software: just use these reg-files instead.
