vLite 1.0 Final

vLite is a tool for customizing the Windows Vista installation before actually installing it. Windows Vista from Microsoft takes a lot of resources, we all know that. vLite provides you with an easy removal of the unwanted components in order to make Vista run faster and to your liking. This tool doesn't use any kind of hacking, all files and registry entries are protected as they would be if you install the unedited version only with the changes you select. It configures the installation directly before the installation, meaning you'll have to remake the ISO and reinstall it. This method is much cleaner, not to mention easier and more logical than doing it after installation on every reinstall.

Features:

  • component removal
  • driver integration
  • unattended setup
  • split/merge Vista installation CDs
  • tweaks
  • bootable CD/DVD

Changelog:
  • new: 'Windows Portable Devices'
  • new: IIS and Halo 2 Compatibility options
  • upd: 'Natural Language' (64bit leftovers)
  • fix: Hotfixes cleanup when integrated before
  • fix: 'Defrag' (Shrink ability saved)
  • fix: 'Game Explorer' (gameux.dll popups)
  • fix: 'Internet Explorer' (DX Web installer)
  • fix: Memory Requirement option (Manual Install dependency)

This software is illegal under the Microsoft Windows Vista EULA. I am reporting Neowin to Microsoft Homeland Security for spreading Communism on the internet.

if your post refers to a joke then it aint funny,the software aint illegal,you should report yourself to Microsoft Homeland Security for spreading false rumors.also report to the bbc that you have the worst comic,LOL!!!.your posts are soo funny but your jokes are not funny.

it went 1.0 so fast as vista is much easier to do, due to it being componentised, xml scripts and stuff removes parts you dont need rather than figuring out what dependencies things have.

nice errors on the screenshot links though....is this by the same people that made nlite? can't believe it's at 1.0 already, didn't nlite take like a year to go to version 1?

Err he aint trolling. He said that screenshots dnt work. and he sounds excited the fact its got to 1.0 already... are you old enough?
