  • w new components and an important fix. It was crashing during processing for some.
  • This one should also be a little faster during removals and 'Applying changes'.

Changes for v1.1.6 Beta - v1.1.6 Beta 2

  • Here is the fixed version. Besides few fixes there are 2 components, WLAN and Firewall that are really tied into the Slipstreamed SP1 finalization routines so they are hidden as of now, but only when configuring slipstreamed image, others don't have that limit. Will fix that eventually, but for now those two issues (loop and blank features) are solved.

Changes for v1.1 Beta 2 - v1.1 RC

  • There is now a useful option called 4GB fix, basically it can be used to force KB929777 to apply during installation so you do not have to unplug your memory sticks. This is optional because some people do not have this issue, checkbox will appear in the Hotfix integration page if the hotfix is detected or you run vlite with the '-4gbfix' switch. Confirmed working on 32bit Vista.
  • Also there is a switch to enable extreme components ('-extreme'), only one currently present is Component Cache (winsxs). It is not recommended to use that unless you really understand what are the consenquences.
  • In the future there will probably be more components tagged as extreme which I would never usually add or they can be removed in certain scenarios.
