  1. restore Quick Launch toolbar on the taskbar?
  2. win 7 x64 sp1 services > distributed link tracking client - startup type not set (i set as disabled and it was automatic) Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN v2.0.50727_X64 - was set to automatic. i loaded a preset and for some reason this (and several other services) were checked, yet no change was made to the startup type
  3. win 7 x64 sp1 tweaks > explorer > adjust visual styles > best performance - failed completely - all visual effects were enabled
  4. absolutely - my hat is off to developers who choose to get involved in projects like WTk, n/vLite, the update packs, etc. because, as you say, there's no prospect whatsoever of a "finished" product. many of the people i'm aware of are in this for the long haul and show a degree of dedication that far surpasses my own
  5. compstuff provided a link to a KB list with detailed information in it - this is powered by SoLoR, Chris123NT and mydigitallife... Windows7 x64 update list perhaps these titles/descriptions could be integrated into the 'Update Catalog' UI as well? could also include hyperlinks to the relevant MS page or, better yet, include all of it...

  6. i think the tooltips are pretty important to noobs [like me] and it's kind of annoying they close sooner than some can be read with a default tooltip delay what about a boarderless splash text window (SplashTextOn() in the AutoIt world) that appears as long as control is hovered (possibly with option to hide these)? - or - a status area at the bottom of the UI that displays the tip when control is hovered? if something like this were done, perhaps the 'Basic', 'Intermediate' and 'Advanced' controls could all be combined under the 'Main' tab in groups labeled 'Basic', etc. and the tab control could be dumped, resulting in a cleaner UI IMHO
  7. as in it doesn't download, or isn't displaying the files? this happened to me too, but apparently the cause was that the server(s) were off-line (nothing to do with WTk) and YES! that link you provided is great! i see SoLoR is involved in that as well. i'd suggest the link be added to WTk UI also - one thing i don't like with the update downloader is that no titles or descriptions are provided - perhaps these titles/descriptions could be integrated into the UI as well - that would be really helpful! one better would be to also include hyperlinks to the relevant MS page, or include all of it...

  8. allow system disk partitioning from the UI? any thoughts on possibly using the System Image Manager as a front-end for unattended.xml? or do you gotta package the whole bloody WAIK (1.3 GB)? also requested : disallow the creation of the hidden recovery partition on install (for autounattended too)
  9. as long as you're extracting files from the exe, i'm noticing that the files are not being deleted on exit in some cases... if check for updates is enabled and the version being started is old, and you click 'yes' to download the update (program exits), extracted files remain i'm also seeing the 'SevenZipSharp.dll' file remaining in other cases, though i can't specify how to reproduce just yet maybe there's some sort of exit routine you can run on WinToolkit.exe exit to be sure the cleanup always runs?
  10. i did, yeah. why, did i screw something up?
  11. re: component remover... bad description on my part - i meant 'dependencies' and apparently i meant in the AIO-I component remover in other words if you remove a component that has dependency components, they should become checked also. this does happen in component remover, but does not happen from the AIO Integrator component remover ... speaking of which, is the latter really worth having? 2 component removers seems a bit confusing/redundant maybe (i know they work in a different way, but the Component Remover is better than the AIO-I one and does everything it can do)
  12. request : not sure if this is worthwhile or not ... since WTk relies on DISM and its limitations, maybe it would be beneficial to add an edit control where one can enter file names to manually remove (perhaps add a tab control and just add an edit control in the new tab) this would be more useful if presets could be loaded also, if this were done, perhaps an area on the forum could be dedicated to manual component removal where users could post their own file lists for particular components for the minimalist folks this could end up as a pretty cool feature perhaps - you could even possibly download user created lists/scripts from within WTk with a similar interface as the the component remover - checkboxes with 'Name', 'Description' and possibly even a 'Rating' (also red/yellow/green row colors). so you could have kind of like a simple add-on creator for making the file lists ...or am i going way off the deep end here
  13. it's just a conflict is all - you have 2 update checkboxes and they don't agree; 1 in options and 1 on the update window (when clicking button on main UI to check for updates) if the former is UNchecked, and the latter is checked, then i would expect the update check at startup to occur, but it doesn't (the latter should override the former and set it to checked state also) personally, the simplest solution may be to just dump the option in the update checking UI so the only checkbox is in the main UI > options. failing that, the 2 should probably be in sync
  14. Component Remover request : allow loading presets
  15. hmmm - didn't know that. if that's the case, then perhaps 'Music and Video Examples' component should be colored red
