Topic: Sad news about Vista-Tool 2.0

Today i spoke to Jan who also made 1.0
He told me he decided to quit the development of Vista-Tool 2.0
He is working on a tool for Windows 7 instead.

I hope he will change his mind, or give us the source, so one of us can finish it.

Al i have is an Alpha build , i will post it here , but remember that no support can be given on this.
And remember to Copy expand.exe to : C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\Servicing

expand.exe is included in the tools folder

Re: Sad news about Vista-Tool 2.0

This is another setback for Vista. 
But Win7 will be awesome and no one will want to remember the 'dark days' of Vista.

I see that Jan went to help over here: http://future.siginetsoftware.com/index.php
This is a VERY good thing, because all the great developers are converging on a single project (that MAY be backwards compatible with Vista).
This new project brings together all the core developers of the RyanVM Integrator, and the W7Toolkit and other bright minds. 
I also signed on to the project, because I feel we're on the cusp of something great with W7 and I can be a positive influence on it's development.

This good news! Vista need dead! Windows 7 is future! I uninstall Windows XP and work with Windows 7 RC1 - very good system!

Worked on Windows 8.1 Pro

Re: Sad news about Vista-Tool 2.0

I agree, XP and Vista are dead, Windows 7 rules.

Re: Sad news about Vista-Tool 2.0

Agreed... Win7 is the future

Let's concentrate on that! just signed up over at future.signet - Let's get this ball rolling!

Re: Sad news about Vista-Tool 2.0

I will never understand the hype about Seven ... I tried it and there was no "never go back" experience ... My Server 2008 Enterprise is running smoothly as a workstation, and it is able to use Physical Adress Extension under 32 Bit. Seven 32-Bit cuts at 4 GB ...

Re: Sad news about Vista-Tool 2.0

well they cut the RAM footprint in half and that was my big beef... all the Digital Media Rights BS they couldn't sell and some other fat has now been stripped out. saving us about 512meg of RAM they were not useing anyway...

Hopefully we will see more of this, even though RAM is a penny a pound these days no sense in just burning it for no reason - i still remember optimizing UMBs wink)

I see Win7 as the first viable release of NT6... the beta is over.

Tom's Hardware did a test with RAM recently and reports that even while gaming there is little benifit to having more than 3 gig of RAM. I am sure I can think of some exceptions (autocad) but the test was still valid for most all users wink

I downloaded the Qt GUI creator to play with over the weekend.  We will make progress on the new Win7 integrator soon hopefully.

Re: Sad news about Vista-Tool 2.0

Re: Sad news about Vista-Tool 2.0

Is this re Wims suggestion to switch to a new programming language for the Win7 tool?

I did not think that anyone jumped on that idea at future.signet... is there another disscussion that i missed?
IDK if everyone will jump ship given that all of us are already quite comfortable with autoit.
I have forgotten more languages than most people ever learn... So i don't care, switching languages for me is like switching cars... not the same at all, but so much alike it only takes minutes to get on the road wink.

What do you think of it? Are you useing it for something or jsut playing?

I like the idea of all of us useing the same platform for our app (or apps)...
this has always been a benifit to us. We have several shared code modules now, Siginet wrote the OS detection routine that Wim and eventualy I modified for BASE wink

Re: Sad news about Vista-Tool 2.0

Great news to hear about the Windows 7 Tool with all of these fantastic minds on board it will go places which the like of nLite/vLite and others could never see (they were still good apps but times change). Times are very interesting indeed!

Re: Sad news about Vista-Tool 2.0

It was a little quite a sad news that a vista was gone and windows 7 take place  of it and very speedy. And I also jump form vita to windows 7 because it was a quite a nice OS than vista and from vista, windows 7 is more user friendly. An contain a nice features in it then vista.
