It works like a charm on W8.1_x64, thanks a lot!
Hi Jaynbe, I just found out that I have a 2005 C++ redistributable v8.0.61001 installed on my PC.
It seems to be this version: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=26347
Are you planning to integrate it in your AIO?
Thanks in advance
Thanks a lot for the lite version ricktendo. Nice work.
Merci beaucoup pour le boulot, cependant je me suis fais une version EN qui m'est plus utile que la version FR. Tu peux détailler comment enlever les Visual stp? Peut-on aussi supprimer le apntoolbarinstaller? Qu'apporte la version 2013 au fait?
Génial ce petit programme, j'ai attends la confirmation d'inscription sur le site de RyanVM pour fouiller un peu. Thx
Wow it's awesome, I love this application and I just discovered you guys updated it. Thanks a lot, nice work
I'm also excited about this 1.5 stable release for Win7 and still keeps hope about an incoming 0.1 alpha for Win8 :dancing:
Thanks again for the amazing work
Thanks a lot for your replies. Indeed I would like to shrink windows 8 post install. As a professional, I will install win8 in some companies and there are many functionalies I would like hide. I also do installations in NGOs, therefore win8 has to be lite in term of disk space as some computers are quit old (still it's running fast...). For the SSD laptops, space is limited also.
So the ultimate purpose is to gain space by disabling/hiding/removing functionalites as RT7Lite and RT7booster do.
@ricktendo64: How do you do that after install? I don't really understand, can you give me more specifics? Thx
@Legolash2o: Sorry for the doublon, I'm looking forward for the 1.5.0 version then. Thanks a lot for the good work.
Any date regarding a working WinToolkit version for Windows 8 please?
I tried using the actual release on it but the components removal does not work properly. I'm open to another alternative method to shrink windows 8 Thanks in advance
The Component remover gave me an error at the end of the process.
Now everytime I load my image I get this. No antivirus during the process. I had to reboot in safe mode to remove the folder as the unmount functionality gave said some files were used.
I extracted again my image and tried again, same problem. Never had this with the previous versions 65. I uploaded the report at 8.58pm UTC +5.45
Thanks in advance.
After I tested KUC, our dear WUpdates, and the WinToolkit update catalog, I am still struggling to manually integrate the least update as possible. I still can't find the point of using 300 updates on a lite system where 80% of the features was removed.
I thought KUC was the solution, thanks ricktendo, but it still installs some useless updates and it is good only for a fresh install but I can't update it after. I surrendered myself now
I tried installing all the updates recommended by KUC, then removing all the features with RT7 solutions. It works like a charm, but then I have to stick with these updates. Indeed if I choose to use WU, it will install useless updates. KUC is showing me wrong results and don't operate properly.
I can understand no software are able to say, ok your system has these features enabled, so I can advise you to install this, ignore those ones. When new updates come in 5 months, the software still tells me you only need these updates and I can ignore the useless ones. Thanks to KUC, I know that all updates shown in WU after installation of my lite version can be ignored, but when there will be another set of correctives, I will not not which one I can ignore or not.
Hard to make the litest version possible in terms of size & performance...
Thanks for tip Thiersee, I was also looking for a way ton integrate some fonts, not 2500 though
I'm actually trying to make KUC working fine with my configuration. So its creator is helping me because there are many errors. RT7lite or Booster may be the cause, they probably deleted important files from winsxs.
Anyway, It's also not the ultimate tool I want for my image because it is still installing things I don't want, but it's the closest one.
I'll keep you posted. Thanks again for your help
Thanks for your answers.
So I tried to integrate all the updates from the Catalog first, then removing the components. The result is an image around 700MB bigger and almost 2GB more of used space after installation.
The thing is the Winsxs folder full of updates integrated and I'm pretty sure only few of them are installed; it's a waste of space, especially because I plan to install it on an small SSD.
Is there another way to know which updates my system really needs, to keep my image light? (outside the obvious one like IE9 which I will not integrate as I don't IE)
There must be a log or something who says which updates was installed, no? Am I dreaming right now?
I'm new here, just love Win Toolkit the fact that it is up to date. Awesome work.
I basically use Rt7lite to remove the components I don't want. Then I use Rt7 booster to make it even smaller and I use WinToolkit to integrates updates, drivers and to tweak my image.
However there is something I don't understand about the integration of updates in a new image. The Update Catalog offers almost 500updates and I don't really know which one to integrate.
Indeed I understood I don't need to use the ones from Additionnal if I don't plan to use the feature, but I am confused with the rest as I removed many functionalities with the Rt7 softs.
So my idea was to run my Rt7 booster image in Virtual box and launch windows update to see what he proposes. Then I note the name of the updates and integrate them with Wintoolkit (around 30 with a 1.2GB image). So far so good but when I run the Wintoolkit image with the updates, then I get a bunch of new ones from Windows updates and most of them are listed as "old" by the "Update Catalog" of WinToolkit.
Should I put those old ones? What does "old" mean by the way? Pre-SP1?
I don't get it. I assumed that Windows Update was able to know which update I need regarding what features are enabled but clearly not and I really don't want to install useless updates as I reduced my image as much as I wanted.
How do you guys proceed?
Thanks in advance for your help.
