Francesco Posted February 20, 2007 Share Posted February 20, 2007 (edited) After seeing that applications like Acrobat Reader when unpacked are more than 100mb (even if the original setup is just 21mb) and that if I compress those setups with 7zip it takes ages for them to extract on old computers or computers with slow HDs (laptops) I started thinking about using the new vista's WIM format to create a compressed image with the acrobat files that I can mount on XP and use it to install acrobat.WIM images can be mounted as a driver letter (not only on Vista but also on XP and probably win2k) and have a very fast decompression so one could create a compressed WIM image with all of his uncompressed unattended applications installs and then mount it and install everything from there and still have a good speed/compression compromise.Has somebody already tried this solution or am I the only one thinking about it?
