Windows 7 Toolkit v1.3.0 Release Candidate 2


Recommended Posts

Download and more Information: http://www.wincert.n...dows-7-toolkit/

If you have a problem, bug, glitch, spelling mistakes, etc... then please make a new topic :)

Release Candidate has been released because it's getting nearer to v1.3.0.100 and i feel it's safe enough to release as RC.

  •^FIX: *.theme files now integrates it's folder if detected


  •^FIX: W7T will now detect SWM files

Some naughty people have been renaming their .swm files into .wim files to try and edit this, W7T now detects this. tut tut :P

  •^WIM Manager tooltips will now show wim location

If you put your mouse over the 'Image Name' it will show the wim location.

  •^SWM Merge Tool has been added to merge *.swm files

Because i've banned use of SWM files i decided to make a tool which let's you merge them back into a .wim

P.S. The download link contains more info about the program itself.

No, but quite a bit more has changed since that post lol, i'm waiting for a tester to get back to me :)

For example i've removed the 'Method' list on All-In-One Drivers tab, W7T will use the fastest method but it detects a foreign character then it will automatically do the slower method just that those updates and install the rest using the fast method.

Change CMD Text Colour

I found the mistake of the cmd text colour, damn typo's :P I've also added all of the texts colours, removed the background colours though.


The current pagefile tweak was Disable Paging Executive, i've renamed that and changed it's description but i've also included the proper "Disable Pagefile" tweak too :)

Any of those colours, backcolour will always be black though.

Hey guys, please see this screenshot and tell me is this happening with me only or you are also facing this problem?


What Windows are you using? Seems like you got a custom theme... Try the normal aero theme

Yeah you are right, I am using a custom theme. And I did try with default aero theme and didn't face this problem. But can't you make it work properly in custom theme as well. As most of the customizers use custom theme.

v1.3.0.94RC is doing very nicely still, i've cleaned up loads of old code, remove potential bugs, and tidied the whole thing up.. :)

Not working mate.:-(

Is it still glass effect?

Turn OFF glass effect (Black Glass Enhanced) then this text will dissapear ! ask me how I know...

Lego can not be bothered with stuff like that!!!

Agreed, if a user decided to user third party themes and that theme hasn't been made correctly, then the issue is not mine :P

Ok let it be, I will manage this way only. But with due respect to all of you, I didn't enable glass effect but then also I went to presonalization>Window Color and uncheck Enable Transparency. I have also uncheck "Tool Manager Aero" in W7T "Options" I have also checked in the process of task manager none of such process is running.

But none of them is working. The above information is only for letting you know that it is not because of Glass Effect or Transparency of personalization and not even "Tool Manager Aero" of "W7T Options"

Now this topic is over atleast for me. Sorry for opening this issue.

v1.3.0.95 released.

  •^FIX: Fixed an issue with InputBoxes on tweaks tab

When a user selected a tweak which required user input, it showed a blank form.

  •^FIX: Fixed an issue where user could not add/integrate addons [missing tasks.txt]

I don't know what caused this error but it has now been fixed by changing a few bits of code.

  •^Update Google Chrome download link on Downloads tab

Updated the links to offline installers

  •^Updated ISO Maker GUI

Some check boxes did not show properly so made the options into a listview.

  •^FIX: Fixed some Internet Explorer 9 tweaks

Default search provider, first run screen (hopefully) and some others.

  •^FIX: Fixed some potential bugs

Had an extension called ReSharper take a look at my code.

  •^FIX: Fixed silent installer tweak where it should not ask you if you want run exe after install.

Fixed that tweak which was supposed to stop the 'Security Warning - Open File' prompt.

  •^FIX: Updated addon integrator code

More updating of addon integration code.

  •^FIX: Change CMD Text Colour tweak now works and has more colours

A typo caused this issue.

  •^FIX: Disable pagefile tweak now works

The tweak actually disable paging executive but i've now renamed that and gave that a proper description and added the real disable pagefile tweak.

  •^FIX: All-In-One tool now has foreign character detection.

I've removed the 'Method' list from Drivers All-In-One Tab and now W7T will install drivers the fastest way possible, if there is a foreign character then it will copy the folder to a temp folder and install it again.

  •^FIX: W7T will now only let you mount images on NTFS volumes

You can only mount an image to NTFS so might as well of added detection and notify the user that NTFS is required.

  •^FIX: W7T will not only let you mount to directories with english characters (non-foreign)

W7T won't let you mount to a folder with foreign characters this will greatly affect integration tasks if left enabled.

  •^Updated addon integration code from 2009-2010

It hadn't been updated since 2010 (Vista Update Toolkit) and thought i should bring it up to date.

  •^Cleaned up all code, removing unused code, etc...

Got Resharper to remove old code, unused code and it also cleaned up some code.

  •^Removed 'Show Groups' in Options

It literally did nothing.

  •^Set Product key has been added to WIM Manager

As requested, if you have an image mounted it will let you directly set a product key without unattended file.

  •^Unattended option has been removed from All-In-One tool

In the 'Options' tab in All-In-One tool, adding an unattended file has been removed because it can be done via the previous screen (WIM Manager)

  •^New Unattended method for WIM Manager

W7T gives you the option to integrate the unattended.xml file into the boot.wim which is useful for those who boot from USB 3.0, external HDD and SSD Controllers.

  •^WIM Manager now shows Make ISO & Rebuild by default

You will always see this options no matter which tool you are using.

  •^WIM Manager let's you switch from Tool <> WIM Manager and visa-versa.

When you select an image, you can now switch to any other tool.

Clears a program unnecessary services and registry keys from them after the removal of components or services continue to appeal to non-existent keys and components already in its place?

I'm guessing you're on about component removal, yes i also remove the registry keys too...
