How can I bring back the Components window in setup

Recommended Posts


Could anyone help me because if I can't get The Components Window in setup to work then I can't choose what I want and don't want installed.

I know how to do that. I want to restore it in Windows Setup. How do I bring it back in setup?

I pursued a similar solution in the HFSLIP forums quite some time ago. Never had much luck.

An in-place re-install?

I used a third-party app in place of the component that I was trying to install. Your solution will depend on what your actual goal is.

If your goal is to get the ability install/uninstall all of the components, then a reinstall would do the trick.

What about sysocmgr.exe. Is there a way to use that to bring back Components Wizard or maybe I could get all the components entries and just install the components without the Components Wizard.

You know like when Windows is installed on my Virtual PC just do a comand like sysocmgr write into sysoc.txt then take the information and import it into the sysoc.inf, WINNT.SIF, or Unattanded.txt
