[quotecf3128f15a]Have you ever wanted to remove Windows components like Media Player, Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, MSN Explorer, Messenger...
How about not even to install them with Windows ?
nLite is a tool for permanent Windows components removal and pre-installation Windows setup. After removal there is an option to make bootable image ready for burning on cd or testing in virtual machines. With nLite you will be able to have Windows installation which on install doesn't include, or even contain on cd, unwanted components.[/quotecf3128f15a]
I used it a while back (integrating updated drivers, windows updates, service packs etc) and it worked fine (I tested it on Microsoft Virtual PC 2004), however, when I tested it with a version where I removed certain Windows components (such as games, Outlook etc), when it was installing, it was constantly telling me it couldn't find a file and to browse for it. I just skipped them all, but it was annoying.
I was under the impression it wouldn't do that, but have I got it wrong, or did I mess up somewhere along the line when making it?
I've used it for awhile, but never to strip out stuff -- only to add stuff. So I've not run into that issue either. Don't know if that's normal or not...
Yeah I asked on the forum, but never received a reply. Then I checked it today and I got a reply back in August so I replied again today so hopefully they'll be able to help.
