  1. Can someone help me with a very simple program that can run in the background? I need to kill a task based on a filename whenever it starts. I am running Windows 10 x64 if it matters.

    RamDisk ScratchDir

    I tried a lot of different configurations from 8GB up to 24GB. I did see an interesting error when trying to set my ramdisk as my VMWare VHD location. It complained about the destination file system not accepting large files. Strange seeing as it was NTFS. I think the problem is with ImDisk. I have used other programs in the past that showed my drives in the Disk Management Console. ImDisk does not.

    RamDisk ScratchDir

    Have you considered adding RamDisk capability to the Toolkit? I manually run DISM using a RamDisk (Created with Open Source ImDisk: http://www.ltr-data.se/opencode.html) as the ScratchDir and it is significantly faster! Also, maybe someone could help me determine why DISM fails to integrate updates when the MountPoint is on a ramdisk?

    WA Installer 2.7- 3.0.6.0B - WA Cmd 0.1 (9-4)

    I have noticed that if I use your program to install an addon that puts the uninstall information in: HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall it does not add the registry entries. All the files are copied and all other registry entries are added. If I manually install the program from the INF or if I use HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ it works fine.
  6. Wow... New Win Toolkit really helped program responsiveness!

    [Solved] Sorry, no updates until 2014

    What type of hardware you looking for?

    Relocate Windows folders before populated during install

    Well, I realize this would take way more effort than it's worth (if it's even possible) so I've given up :|. Everything gets linked properly but none of the files are originally placed in their modified locations. Causes a few problems... More advanced than I, just hoped I could simply trick the OS into doing what I asked.

    Relocate Windows folders before populated during install

    Thank you crashfly. I just stumbled upon the Win Toolkit which has an image registry editor. Going to work with it for a while.

    WIM Registry Editor

    All of the entries show the system drive as D:, is this going to stay or is it just because my live system is C:?

    Relocate Windows folders before populated during install

    I would consider that as an option as well, as long as I can run it in the installation process before a bunch of things are assigned the value of the variable in question. Any ideas there?
  12. I would try installing from a usb drive to rule out bad optical drive. If you're not sure how to do that, check out http://arstechnica.com/business/2009/12/the-usb-flash-drive/. If that doesn't work, try integrating drivers using RT Seven Lite Beta 2.6.0 from http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/515-system-type-32-bit-x86-64-bit-x64.html.
  13. I am attempting to modify %ProgramFiles% and %ProgramFiles(x86)% definitions as well as a few minor directories during setup. What I am not sure of is where or when to apply this so windows copies the least amount of files to the default locations. If I have to, I will write a script that finds and replaces any registry entries already modified and use the results of the script to move those files to their new locations. Any guidance is greatly appreciated! Comments also!! I plan on using registry entries like the following.

    This I like and thank you! I hadn't thought of that.

    This link comes up not found. Also, I need to know the version of windows installed, not the type of cpu installed. I'm running windows 7 64bit, %os% = Windows_NT. Doesn't help.
