  1. Thanks
    robertcollier4 got a reaction from mooms in smallest, lightest fastest windows 7 install   
    The best thing to provide would be BAT files for removal of files.
    Dont think the forum rules allow posting of Microsoft files directly except linking to Microsoft servers.
    The user has to download iso using Techbench or ISO Downloader, mount install.wim image using a tool such as GImageX, and then perform the removals themselves via bat files.
    I have archived some removal bat files over the time, linked:

    BAT File Removals:
    dead0.rar
    Jeronimo-Dead0-Scripts-Batch-ORIGINAL.zip
    jeronimo.rar
    liquid.rar
    mackyreddy_Micro7_BatRemovals_V7.zip
    DISM Components Removal LIsts:
    Jeronimo packages.xls
    Liquid0624 7packages.pdf
    scribd Win7packages_dism-vs-vlite (based on jeronimo).pdf
    Perhaps we could compile them into a github (forums get too messy)- and then all commit and add components and notes via github files and report findings in github issues.
    Here are some good guides i've found using RT 7 LIte:

    robertcollier4 got a reaction from karra in Set Default Portable Browser in Registry (Correctly handles .URL files)   
    I wrote this because I was unable to find any working tools on the Internet to correctly change the default browser association in Windows (such as if you want to use a portable edition of a browser).

    The problem with all of the other tools on the Internet is that they do not correctly handle .URL files. Since .URL files are text files - they have to be passed to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut" where the URL gets parsed by shdocvw.dll and then passed to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http. With other tools - the .URL files would open as text files in the browser instead of opening the actual URL itself. This script does it correctly.

    Silent mode: If no command line arguments will show GUI. Will run in silent mode if argument passed to it on command line. Silent mode if successful does not write anything to command line / stdout (Autohotkey does not natively support writing to stdio)- if you are running in silent mode and the utility runs without any popups or warning dialogs - then the change was successful.Silent mode example: DefaultBrowserInRegistry.exe "D:\PortableApps\GoogleChromePortable\GoogleChromePortable.exe"
