Life is great and life is grand, and it's a beautiful day.

Breaking the law! Breaking the law!

If RyanVM wants to sue me for adding comments to his INI file, well hopefully we can make an out of court settlement first before it goes that far.

So... Currently there is a duplication of the "; KBxxxxx - Microsoft Foo" label in each section, meaning you have to edit stuff in up to 5 places to remove them from Entries.ini. It may be possible to still further organize this layout so that Entries.ini only has a single location for each KB/addon...

There's no risk of any sorts of hacks, the Update is just the .INI and .INF -- you have to use the files provided by Ryan.

Alright, Here's my update of RyanVM's pack. Entries.ini has every file commented for the exact KB it corresponds to, so you can easily remove what you like. RVMUpPck.inf has each section commented to give a KB description. RVMUpPck.inf has all "see alsos" removed and switched over to a per-KB layout...

Here's another thought: nLite lets you specify extra files to delete, doesn't it? Shouldn't be hard to get that info from the entries.ini and input the filenames into nLite. That would be easy, but it's not a clean solution -- because as we can see, a lot of these entries add stuff to the registry....

It's bloat to me because my nLite disk cannot even support running Windows updates, as Windows Update is completely removed, so the files installed by that knowledgebase don't even work.

My philosophy on the setup is simply "everything works." -- I don't like broken files.

Xable has the same issue, has new files, and has to be modded as well.

For example,

"898461 - Software update 898461 installs a permanent copy of the Package Installer for Windows version 6.1.22.4"

This is entirely related to Automatic Updates and Windows Update.

Some of the files from entries.ini do not ever appear in RVMUpPck.inf, so I can't see where they're coming from? For example: d1,wuapi.mui d1,wuaucpl.mui d1,wuaueng.mui And there's no file alias pointing it to something which DOES appear in RVMUpPck.inf wuapi.mui = 100,,,,,,,2,0,0,wuapi.dll.mui Why ...

redxii, your suggestion about dosnet_files is helpful. The [dosnet_files] / [i386_compress] sections in entries.ini makes cleaning things up a bit easier. It seems that they contain exactly the list of every possible file that nLite will be unaware of. So the job is: A) Go through each file in i386_...

The RyanVM pack installs DRM crap! Why does he do this to us!?!? It has a new Microsoft DRM engine that doesn't even come with SP3. Check your C:\Windows\System32\ "msdrm.dll" "RmActivate.exe" "RmActivate_isv.exe" "RmActivate_ssp.exe" "RmActivate_ssp_isv.exe" "SecProc.dll" "SecProc_isv.dll" "SecProc...

ccl0, it's not so much the point A in itself... it's that... I had a perfect disk, now I don't. Having "Windows Update" stuff in the start menu means the disk is ruined. Means it's unreliable, means people might click it and screw up their windows install, etc. I spent a lot of time making sure that...

If I try to customize my RyanVM inf, in order to remove stuff... Do I need to delete some \ASMS\ and \svcpack\*.cat's ?

First I have to figure out how to remove this windows update crap.

To EVERYONE except 5eraph who replied, you are all wrong. I followed Ryan's instructions exactly. I added the RyanVM pack into nLite hotfixes section. @redxi, Wrong. It's not re-adding anything. FIRST it applies the hotfixes SECOND nLite removes all the components @Kelsenellenelvian, Wrong. I didn't...

Afraid to use RVM Update Pack with nLite because of BLOAT

Hello, I'd just like to thank Ryan for all his hard work on this pack. I am having some issues, though :( I have nice 130MB nLite disk I've been using that's just awesome. There's no junk in it. It feels flawless. After integrating the RyanVM update pack, my ISO goes from 130MB to 142MB. And my comp...
