    Hi

    VLite is not compatible with windows 7 sp1 (MSDN), there are .dll file corrupt, etc...
    by modifying the Wimfltr.sys file with newer (WAIK3 file), Vlite closes itself after the removal of components (during the process)
    if it unmount the image with dism is OK, but not 100% sure that there is no bug

    will someone have an idea for someone to Vlite compatible with 7 sp1 MSDN

    thanks ;)

    PS: I know rt7lite but Vlite rest for now, the best "software" to do certain tasks

    VLite is compatible with 7 sp0 (well for what I do)

    and yes, Nuhi stopped the dev Vlite, etc. ... for a while

    Indeed, there are errors with some .dll, files, etc... using Vlite and a 7 sp1 MSDN (no error if you use 7 with SP1 integrated)

    the files corrupt are

    I didn't really find anything missing from rt7lite. What exactly are you missing?

    You could maybe request missing feature in RT7Lite forums btw as it is still being developed..

    - if we remove the security center, a message appears (in action center) that the security center is not activated (not present with Vlite)
    - can not delete "file and printer sharing (Server) (present with vLite)
    - the cleaning is not done entirely as with vLite (it will be for not having a bug in Windows, but I'm not with Vlite)

    I have asked on their forum, but I'm not sure it changes anything

    RT7Lite is being reworked from the ground up, addressing old and new issues. Hopefully it will be a little more thorough on the removal part. I have to say, though, I have not had any problems using it, although I know someone who used vLite and he always ended up with a smaller iso size. The x64 iso's I've had no problem getting down to 2.37gb, and the x86 isp to 1.77gb, while keeping full compatibility for my use (including ability to install Office 2010, etc.).

    If I'm not mistaken, when removing natural languages with vLite (Win 7 SP0), including Japanese language, it is still possible to install Office 2010. But with RT7Lite, when you remove Japanese it breaks the ability to install Office 2010. I'm not sure why this is.

    I can second that Trinket. Although i stopped playing with 7lite i had the same problems with installing Office, it had to do with missing fonts. I think i kept a European Union language or one that had certain symbols to overcome this.

    I don't second that anymore :) RT7Lite is really not that good of a tool. vLite can be made to work with Win7 SP1, but you'll have to use Win7 SP0 as a base and install it in VM and install SP1 to it and then sysprep it, then capture it via Imagex. Then remove SP files and clean up, then export. That Win7 SP1 image you can use with vLite, no problems.

    If you do use RT7Lite, you can't remove Japanese language or MSOffice 2010 won't install. I used Win7 SP1 lite images made by RT7Lite for almost a year, no problems. But vLite is leagues above RT7Lite and vLite is all I use now. Not only that, it takes about 10% of the time that it takes RT7Lite to do the same thing.

    you get back an old topic :D

    Vlite is compatible with Windows 7 SP1, you just use Gimagex before using Vlite :p

    Yeah I read those. Some guy in that thread got an IE9 problem with this method. Then, a friend of mine got exactly the same IE9 problem when using this method as well. Instead what he had been doing was create our own SP1 image out of SP0 source and intergrating SP1 in VM. A base image made that way is actually quite a bit smaller and cleaner than MS' own SP1 images. And it works with vLite without any problems, including the IE9 one. I think the IE9 problem (and perhaps others) may be due to not exporting the image after saving/committing it. I noticed someone mentioned this as well in the thread you refer to, and I had the same thought myself. I was thinking of sysprepping an MS SP1 iso and capturing that and see if that can yield the same effects as the sp0-to-sp1 image. But yeah I think this vLite stuff for WIn7 may just be a little more complex than, 'hey I used Gimagex on it' lol.
