XP and Vista users: You will need to use the DISM Installer in order for W7T to work on your Operating System!

Windows 7 Toolkit is a program designed to help you integrate your Updates, Drivers, Theme Packs, Tweaks, Wallpapers, Addons, SFX Installers, Gadgets and remove the things you don't want from your Windows 7 Image.

Tools Manager is the main window for Windows 7 Toolkit, there are many tools which you can select.

Main - Basic

  • All-In-One Integrator

This is the greatest tool in W7T, it's let you integrate, Addons, Remove Components, Drivers, Gadgets, Language Packs, Edit Services, Silent Installs, SFX, Theme Packs, Tweaks, Updates and Wallpapers!

This is what it says on the tin, it creates your ISO file for you to burn! Now supports UEFI!

A nice direct link to guides on how to use Windows 7 Toolkit

SoLoR works very hard and providing ALL the updates released since Service Pack 1 so he should get credit for this, this little tool lets you easily download his updates which Microsoft has released via Windows Updates but more importantly which Microsoft has also released privately and which are not released via Windows Update.

Since i prefer my users to use the latest service packs, i have added a link to a completely free, legal and official download source to the Windows 7 SP1 DVD. Note, you will still need your own serial key.

Main - Intermediate

I'm sure you can guess what this is, this creates an Unattended file which you use to install Windows with, just create and make sure you place the new file in the DVD root.

Prepares your USB stick so you can install Windows from it, obviously your computer needs to support USB booting!

Manage and edit your install.wim, for example you can rename images, delete images, add new ones, create ISO, rebuild, mount, unmount, etc... You can also use this tool to integrate your unattended files.

Main - Advanced

This tool let's you combine all your WIM files into one DVD, this is most commonly used is to merge x86 and x64 disks.

This program let's you remove over 100 components which comes with Windows, some of them are Internet Explorer, IIS, Windows Media Player, Sample Pictures, Tablet PC components, etc... I am also planning on adding some more eventually.

This tool mounts the wim and then it's registry so you can add your tweaks into that image!

Tools

Converters

Converts Langauge Packs which are in the exe format to cab so you can integrate them.

Converters Office Updates to msp so they can automatically install when you install Office.

Converts MSU to CAB files so you can integrate them or install on your current OS via the CAB Installer.

Online Installers

This will install drivers on your currently installed system using pnputil.exe, it will only install the drivers you need.This tool also lets you uninstall drivers too.

This will install updates on your currently installed system, probably mostly used by those who use SoLoR Updates. This tool also lets you uninstall old updates too.

Image Tools

Merge *.swm files into a larger *.wim file so it can be edited.

This tool splits your install.wim into multiple files so you can fit them onto multiple CDs.

  • Capture Image

Captures new WIM images, so you can use that new image to install Windows.

Other Tools

  • Addon Maker

This tool is for advanced users to create .WA files which other users can use the All-In-One Tool to integrate into your image.

When Windows Update downloads updates, the cab files get left in a folder. This tool retrieves those files so you can integrate them.
