This program will only work on Windows 7 but there is now an option to ignore this check on this version, just make sure DISM and wimgapi are in the same place as Windows 7 if you are deciding to use Vista! Link Removed If you like using W7T then please tell everyone about it NOTE: This is not the Windows 7 Toolkit which let's you activate Windows.
What is Windows 7 Toolkit?
Windows 7 Toolkit is designed to let you download updates, drivers, unofficial updates and even addons! There are also tools in the program which lets you integrate all of them too. To access the extra tools click on Tools Manager when you open W7T, so let's have a look at them...

Silent Installers This tool lets you add you silent installers, it even gives you the option to prompt you which programs you want to install when Windows has finished installing, letting you install different programs for different computers.
