    2018 Windows 8 Mega Tweaks

    Updated.

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 for Windows 7

    I used to use Ricktendo's compact version of this. But since Microsoft updates this package rather frequently and since the repacked version is now the same size as Microsoft's, what's the point of integrating it? I now make it a silent install addon with NDP472-KB4054530-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe /q /norestart That way, I only have to replace the corresponding file in the WinToolkit_Apps folder when Microsoft updates rather than recompile a new install.wim.

    INF Installerss

    Anybody seen a good tutorial on .inf installers with a file section that actually, reliably uninstalls? The Microsoft stuff online makes no sense to me. Also, as I have experimented and looked at other .inf files on my own system, the inf's with installation instructions doesn't seem to actually delete itself even if the install directories and registry entries are removed. Looks like they all just remain in the %WindDirZ%\Inf folder.
  6. Anybody know what command I can put into autounattend.xml to install Windows 8 in to an already formatted and existing Disk 0, Partition C, so my setup does not stop at that dialog screen? All the examples I have seen are for formatting the drive and I don't want to do that since I am dual booting with another OS that I install before I do a clean install of Windows 8.

    Copy Modified Files to Your Image

    Thanks.
  9. Is the Wintool tab: "Copy Modified Files to Your Image", only for replacing existing Windows files like Notepad.exe or calc.exe or can you add non-existing files as well. I ask because I see that radio check button and I tried adding custom cursors to the Windows\Cursors folder on Windows 8.1 and nothing happened. I also can't reliably copy to the cursor folder using WPI after an install. Any suggestions. (I'm using version 1.5.3.12 if it makes any difference.

    I do not have access to Server 2012 and therefore have not tested the tweaks on that platform. I would assume that most of them work, particularly the menu-interface ones. However, in a server environment, I would suggest that you apply the tweaks one at a time and test them if reliability is important to you.

    Happy to support the site but please remove my real name. Thanks.
  13. As an example, say I want to put a shortcut in the taskbar for magnify.exe, which is included with windows in the system32 folder. Since the program magnify.exe already exists, can I make an inno installer to install the taskbar shortcut pointing to magnify.exe since I now have to do this manually after a clean install?
  14. I'm no Inno expert. In fact, this is my first time using it. So I'm lost here. If I have an existing program installed on my PC and I want to create an installer that automatically pins it to the taskbar. I'm trying to figure out which code to modify in shuangxiang2008 included "PinShortcutOntoTaskbar-task.iss" script. Must I do something more than modify the paths to: (ExpandConstant('{app}') and the entry under [Files] Source: Thanks
