    I was wondering if anyone on these forums, could make a Tool to change the setup backgrounds easy.

    In the tool I was thinking a option to select a ISO to mount, then select image to use and which setup screens to apply the image to.

    Then just save and Un Mount the ISO.

    Maybe three buttons in a GUI, 1. Mount ISO 2. Select Image and Apply 3. Save ISO and Un Mount. Possible me think?

    Please, can someone make something like this? :biggrin:

    Not what I was looking for, As WinBubble is only good for tweaks of a already installed system.

    I was think so.

    You could do what you want manually, it's just quite a bit of work. Fo to do that, you should be familar with the SDK for that specific OS. You may could use some Script or Macro, still is a lot of work!

    Question simply would be: Is Windows 7 still worth to do that work?!

    This Project would be worth it, as it could be made to work with many OS's.

    NOT from my point of view! I would start with an actual release instead an outdated one! In reality, I would even wait with that till Windows 10 is golden!!

    Seems pretty close to what pisthai was suggesting. Definitely a good tool though!

    My install iso was updated with the simplix updater, but I'm testing on stock iso.

    LOL, I got the third build, and it seems to work better than the others.

    I'm burning #3 now.

    I only get the exit error when I click on the 'ISO/Create ISO' button.

    If I click Save then edit the iso with UltraISO it closes out fine.


    *No install screen & no background image, only this:

    I know you said it was broke, use for feedback purposes only!

    I'll have to test it more later or tomorrow.
