Nice to see a Win7 Section!

Post by Siginet » Fri Jun 18, 2010 8:25 pm

I have been out of the loop for a long time. But I would love to find out what everyones favorite Windows 7 Integration type programs are? Please reply here with your fav(s). Explain what you like aboy it. I wish I had the time to make a Windows 7 Integrator... but it doesn't seem likley. :( Plus I'm sure there is something worth using out there by now right?
:P

Good to see Kelsenellenelvian here to jump start Windows 7 on Ryans forum!

Well I've been using DISM from the command line this whole time. I don't think that there is a comprehensive AND simple tool that's stable enough for primetime yet.
Microsoft has their MDT2010 tool, which is their own GUI for DISM, but it is definitely NOT simple to use.
There are a few basic GUIs out there which script DISM with PowerShell, but they seem cheesy to me.

I have not tried it yet but I ran across the Win7 toolkit at: http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php? ... kit-06023/ and a quick look indicates it might be useful. :shock:

I have not been able to test it extensively, but I have also tried using W7toolkit and some of the other Windows 7 update programs over at wincert. Seems complicated to get the settings right the first time, but once in place, things seem to work.

I have experimented with win7 toolkit and even have an addon for it.

It does have potential..

DISM, once you get over the fear and see how easy it is to use you wont use anything else

Thanks for the link "buttwipe" ;)
Did not know about this one ....
For me this one work the best & is the easiest to understand. 8)

"MSU" updates & driverpacks works perfect, just a pity about the ".cab" support & finding some "true" addons.
