nLite the manual way?

I'd like to know how to nLite the manual way, for example to remove the Games:

I delete these files from /I386:

games.in_
sol.ex_
sol.ch_
sol.hl_
winmine.ex_
winmine.ch_
winmine.hl_
mshearts.ex_
mshearts.ch_
mshearts.cn_
mshearts.hl_
freecell.ex_
freecell.ch_
freecell.hl_
spider.ex_
spider.ch_
spider.hl_

I then delete the corresponding entries in DOSNET.INF and TXTSETUP.SIF

Ok, but this just deletes the files and tells setup not to copy them. What more do I need to remove to make everything about the Games disappear?

There are numerous entries for these files and even more entries for "games" in the files HIVECLS.INF, HIVEDEF.INF, HIVESFT.INF, HIVESYS.INF and HIVEUSD.INF

And what about removing services and other crap the manual way?

Any help would be appreciated :thumbup

add this at the end of your winnt.sif:

[components]

pinball=off

hearts=off

spider=off

solitaire=off

misweeper=off

zonegames=off

if you really want the hard way, look inside the "removal addons" there :

once you understood the structure, they're self-explanatory

important : do not remove the minesweeper, or you'll become unable to fight spywares, viruses, rootkits and others malwares :lol:

I'm actually making a batch file to remove stuff from my XPCD...

Those CABs looke very usefull, I had forgot about sysoc.inf which obviously needs to be edited.

But still there are numerous entries in the HIVE files about 'games' and some entries about the *.exe files.

Are those safe to remove? I'm not very familiar with the HIVEs so if anyone cares to explain ho they work, please do so.

And that minesweeper... yes, has to be the best malware killer there is :sneaky: Thanks for your help :D

not knowing hives by heart makes difficult to see what are those "numerous entries". (note: ignore hiveusd.inf)

global advice : hive*.inf makes good honey : remove those entries either after setup either via a custom hive (search for hivefix.inf on the board, you'll get a fresh thread).

added value of the custom hive method for removing reg entries is that it still works on upgrades or repair-installs (and it avoids you headhaches caused by the unicode format...)

So HIVEUSD.INF just does the themes, power policies and shortcuts?

I'm reading up on the HIVEFIX thing now, looks interesting
