    @cetipabo2: You have to build the exe file yourself. I did it with VS2015 and it builds with no problem.

    Take a look in the sourceCode directory and copy sourceCode.zip out of the archive.

    Extract it to its' own folder, go into the folder labelled 4.0 and click on DISM GUI.sln

    When you open it, it will complain about not having access to a team foundation server named 'blablabla' (who cares...just ignore it)

    Press F7 and you're done.

    Wouhaa is it really necessary to install VisualStudio for that ??? well...i'll do it if there is really no other solution...

    i'll give a look at the "simplix update pack"...that's crazy that HP didn't create any tool to help us to install Windows 7...

    Just pre-integrate the usb3.x drivers in the install.wim or mount the install.wim and run the usb3.x integrator by simplix. Or do it using the updatepack :)

    That's right. Install an OS which won't be supported in 2 years. Makes sense to me!

    @cetipabo2: I have vs2015 installed because I'm writing code.
    Otherwise, I wouldn't want to install it either. :oops:

    Thank you !
    it doesn't make sense to you because you're not in my company and you don't know anything about what kind of applications we are using which is not working on windows 10. When you paid some company to create customized tools 5000€ 5/7 years ago, you don't want to pay again just to have it working on win 10, win 7 is doing the job so for the moment we stay with it.

    If you have any question about the use of simplix updatepack or the standalone USB3.x integration tool, you can always ask me :)

    @cetipabo2: There are two types of people who fully understand that dilemma: The business owner who needs that specific vertical app working and the programmers who are trying to make it work.

    How did you get it to run on the online install? My route was first offline updating the install.wim and let the pack also integrate the USB3.x integration tool, so the install already has the USB3.x drivers installed when windows is installed.

    Did you read the info at the OP of the simplix thread?

    The USB3.x integration tool doesn't get installed using the pack on an online windows.

    For use to offline update an install.wim:

    1. Create a folder simplix, next create 2 folders in the simplix folder and call them "Wim" and "Exe".
    2. Put the most recent updatepack 17.12.15 in the folder called "Exe".
    3. Put the install.wim in the folder called "Wim"
    4. Put the next lines of txt in a text editor:
    Code:
    @Echo Off
    TITLE Simplix UpdatePack7R2 - with IE11 - With USB - No Temp
    COLOR 0A
    Dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:%~dp0wim\install.wim
    pause
    cls
    
    COLOR 0C
    set /p VER=Enter the UpdatePack7R2 version number and press Enter:
    set /p IND=Enter the Index number and press Enter:
    cls
    COLOR 0E
    ECHO UpdatePack: %~dp0exe\UpdatePack7R2-%VER%.exe + ie11
    ECHO WIM:        %~dp0wim\install.wim [Index=%IND%]
    ECHO.
    pause
    cls
    COLOR 09
    "%~dp0exe\UpdatePack7R2-%VER%.exe" /WimFile="%~dp0wim\install.wim" /ie11 /optimize /Index=%IND%
    
    pause
    Save it as .BAT file and put it in the Simplix folder and run it.
    5. Replace the install.wim on the usb key with the newly created one and install windows.
