    or you may just delete the "ei.cfg" in the source folder. :D

    works perfect.

    I've changed a professional edition (x64) to ultimate.

    i was editing the ei.cfg file to get the version i desired however the hash did not match that of whats listed on msdn website.

    i used this program at the recomendation of another member here and it not only works, it yeilds the same info of that on msdn!

    i went from pro to ultimate.

    from checksum:

    I tried this and I see 2 things: The patch indicates success, but the hash no longer matches; you can still see and access the ei.cfg file in PowerISO and it still says

    [EditionID]
    Ultimate
    [Channel]
    Retail
    [VL]
    0

    I haven't tried an install yet to see if I get the version menu. Why would the hash not be correct? I renamed the file in Explorer, does the filename affect the hash?

    TIA!

    the hash should match that of whatever edition you switch too.

    64-bit hash is different than 32-bit.

    Thanks! All I've found are the hashes for x86 and x64 versions of "Ultimate". Using "eicfg_removal_utility.zip" alters the hash on both of these ISO's. From what I'm reading, it's not supposed to?

    which version hash are you looking for?

    no the hash should be that as n msdn or technet

    I just wanted to "remove" the ei.cfg file so I get the version menu where I can select which version to install. I know I can delete the ei.cfg file, but that WILL change the hash. I was under the impression that running this program was supposed to "flip a bit", and in effect, hide the file w/o changing the hash value. It does neither, yet indicates success. The 'puter I working on is running XP, surely that wouldn't matter?

    windows7_iso_image_edition_switcher leaves hash the same
    eicfg_removal_utility DOES alter the hash

    when you rename a file the hash will change even 1 dot that is the whole thing about file Hashes.

    OK, I wasn't sure if the file name was counted in there or it was just the file's contents...

    Thanks!
