How to customize visual effects

Nlite visual effects are not working for me. Can I use reg tweaks or other methods to get the following results upon install? I also want cleartype enabled upon first boot.

I think this should do cleartype..... added at cmdlines.txt

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"FontSmoothing"="2"
"FontSmoothingType"=dword:00000002
[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
"FontSmoothing"="2"
"FontSmoothingType"=dword:00000002

the screenshot was taken after i manually set the visual effects. the trouble is applying these settings via reg tweaks or any other method. I do not know how to set the effects in a pre install enviornment... and i I said b4, nlite is not working for me. It seems to ignore all my visual tweaks.

I'm a noob here. Been messin with slipstreaming and hotfixing for a couple days now using RVM and nLite. I've also found most of the Visual Effects don't work for me either. I set almost all but 2 to disabled. But once I install Windows and look at the Visual Effects tab, they're all checked just like a vanilla install. The start menu slides and windows fade. Is this a new feature in nLite or did something I do break the tweaks?

I used nLite to slipstream SP2 into XP Corp SP0, then RVM update 2.1.3 + DX9 + .NET 1.1&2.0 + WMP10. Made some tweaks and options, but some tweaks didn't take. Like the Remove Windows Catalog and Windows Update shortcuts, and Disable Popup At First Boot. But other tweaks actually worked like Disable Windows Tour Popup & Change Explorer Folder View To: Details.

You can set the Show Contents While Dragging by the reg key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\DragFullWindows

Either a 0 or 1. Not sure if the change takes affect when you reboot,

I just know that's one of the keys that changes when that option is

checked/unchecked.

It's fun to watch the registry with Regmon. :)

EDIT: Here's a Link to a thread explaining more about this known problem.
