    yes I did, what code do you want me to share, is it the source code of the ToolKit. well am thinking of publishing the ToolKit source code soon, may be after another two more versions. am making it more perfect and am working on adding more features like

    - Integrate Registry Tweaks
    - Enable/Disable Windows 8.1/Server 2012R2 Features/Packages
    - Remove Windows 8.1/Server 2012R2 Features/Packages
    - Windows 8.1/Server 2012R2 AIO Maker
    - WIM Tools (Mount/Un-Mount/Rename/Delete/Export2WIM/Export2ESD
    - SmartVersion ISO Patch Maker/Converter/Extractor

    Also I have finished a ToolKit for Windows 7 too and will be releasing it soon, The ToolKit for Windows 7 had been coded with the ability to

    - Integrate Internet Explorer 11
    - Integrate Windows Updates/HotFixes
    - Integrate Windows ThinPC Add-on Packages (Windows Search/Photo Viewer/DVD Burner/Media Center, etc.. etc..)
    - Make/Burn a ISO Image

    So people have to wait a little more for the ToolKit Source Code.

    I can't open the RARs. Do I really need WinRAR? I hate this tool. I tried 7-zip.

    WinRAR isn't bad. Actually, with the RAR5 format, it has improved greatly. Basically the problem's the same like when the .7z format was introduced - nobody could open it except with 7-Zip itself. Now .7z is popular and RAR5 will become popular, too.

    We geeks like to use new stuff right away, sorry for that. And 7-Zip will get RAR5 extraction support as the DLL is available.

    Well I have fixed the toolkit for non-English OS's, so every language will work. the problem was using the dism with the non-English OS will generate the output in non-English OS, so the toolkit was not getting the required value, now I have made the dism to show the result in English language irrespective of the host OS language. The next update is coming with big list of features.

    is it possible to integrate multiple things? for example if i need to integrate net framework, ga updates and hotfixes; the tool needs to unpack and repack the wim file 3 times... so if integrates everything in a time is faster...

    Yes, it can be done, I had thought of it but it needs a lot of re-work and was working on a script to find the total number of wim indexes present in a wim image, so that It will make the job of working with multiple images. right now the new version is ready and am testing it for any errors. so it may take some time to implement what you have asked for.

    please provide some screenshot coz it will be difficult to get the required info. I have been trying the toolkit for every version, with both the x86 and x64 and also the AIO its working properly.

    Regarding the errors you told, the first error is not a error in the toolkit but the batch file to executable converter. it sometimes detects the 64 host os as 32-bit but it won't affect the toolkit functionality. the second error, please do check whether the update packages you are using are compatible with the input os and if its already have been integrated.

    I have already made changes in the next release for the features integrate .net framework 3.5, integrate wmc add-on feature to skip if they are already integrated. I working on the ga updates to skip if the packages are already installed, it's working but sometimes giving trouble, so am still testing it. as far as integrate hotfixes, it will be difficult to check for every packages, but its not impossible, we need to make a list updates present in the updates folder and search for the updates number in the wim pkg info log and then skip if its already installed. but its a tedious process. lets see in future.
