    There is nothing sinister within the project, i just carried on the method to compile it from the project's predecessor, as it made it easier to distribute, even more so now as there are many components/modules which make up the project's structure.

    My coding isn't great by any standard :D but it gets the job done. :p

    That is normal for any exe that been 'compiled' in this way as it a 32bit exe but it has to also run on 64bit so it uses the SYSWOW / Sysnative system, which is one reason the code has redirects etc to make sure it runs the correct bits...

    The alternative would be to have a 32bit exe and a 64bit exe which is a waste of time etc as the method used works ok - as long as i remember to add the check for sysnative etc on any new modules! :p

    I have set up a Git account and at some point will put the project there, i still have the 'source' code i was given when i first took over this project way back in Oct 2016, it has expanded way beyond that :p

    At the moment i am still working out how that git stuff all works, i somehow messed up a setting and had to get a Admin to unlock what i screwed up, so it may be a little while before i upload anything. :D

    @zucrin if you want to chat about anything within the project please PM as it saves cluttering the thread. :)

    Sometimes it may take a little while to reply, more so when using my phone to access MDL as it such a pain to type a long reply. That is usually at night (GMT) due to my shifts.

    The "OEM Info" and Blurred effect options do not work.

    cannot see it in the log, was it selected in the creator?

    to disable blurred sign in effect:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]
    "DisableAcrylicBackgroundOnLogon"=dword:00000001
    
    
    or reg wise:
    Code:
    
    Reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System" /v "DisableAcrylicBackgroundOnLogon" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    The OEM info bit not seem to work on 21h2 and MRP will auto disable the routine, it seems that the log line is not showing the disabled option...will check and fix for next release.

    *edit*
    Have fixed the non showing auto disabled options in the log ready for next release.

    @mxman2k

    "Project Uses Silent Operation : Disabled - Information screens will be shown."

    What is this option in MRP Config Creator?

    When used it prevents those odd mrp dos type screens from showing just before the desktop appears.

    Its an advanced option because if something goes wrong in your usertweaks etc you not be able to see any errors.

    Was added for those that want a silent install. But since the 1904x builds it may not always be fully silent due to changes ms done.

    Yes.

    As mentioned it does supress most screens but anything called by setupcomplete or firstlogon cmd scripts are not suppressed by this mrp option as those scripts are controlled by windows setup.
