    Just use regular Ultimate. No point in using N editions.

    My only problem is, starting from UpdatePack 21.7.7 I'm unable to integrate add-ons (.NET and vcredist). I did renamed the file to UpdatePack7R2--++.exe and placed the add-ons near into it (it's in desktop page). Recently, I updated my OS within the new UpdatePack 21.7.14 but the issue still persist.

    1. best to never use a N version, it's not a feature, it's crippled by EU law.
    2. KMS_VL_ALL supports Win 7 Pro N and Enterprise N, from the readme:

    And what are the exact WA files (filename + sha1) you've put next to the updatepack?

    A number of errors errors occurred while trying to create Windows 7 iso by W7_x64_AiO_New_2.3.cmd from SiMPLiX_AiO_ISO_Full_Tool_2_3_21.4.15.. The DISM.log showed the following types of errors. DISM log file appended.

    Thanks to all who took interest in this problem. I am looking forward to further suggestions for solving the errors.

    What OS you running all this on? I see lots of x86 mentioned in the log and lots of 'Badly formatted drive string: H:\. This drive will not be cleaned.'

    Did you try to put the files in another location? e.g. C:\Simplix

    64-Bit OS with AMD processor. I tried it in Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 with little difference.

    The Kutt.it link for the full Simplex package on page 1 is not working (404 error)..
    Is this package only for creating an image or can it upgrade a live W7 OS? I have UpdatePack7R2-21.4.15, is there another way to update using those files, maybe using Dism?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question but I have been researching this for a couple of hours and need advice. Thanks.

    It's mentioned in daz loader readme.

    Create a "$OEM$\SS\Setup\Scripts\" folder with the loader exe file and a setupcomplete.cmd inside.

    SetupComplete.cmd Example:
    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    %~dp0"Windows Loader.exe" /silent /preactivate
    cd %~dp0
    attrib -R -A -S -H *.*
    SHUTDOWN /R /T 5
    RMDIR /S /Q "%WINDIR%\Setup\Scripts"
    exit
    
    Put the $OEM$ folder inside the "OEM" folder in the project and it will be copied to "ISO:\Sources".

    No, haven't tried yet.
    As the new update is installed on my OS, I'm unable to install it again (just for testing purposes).
    I think I need to wait another update for Updatepack, next month or so.
