And yes after a loooong wait we have a new test version of Vista-Tool 2
Jan is recovered very well, thank god...
And hes bussy writing a new version of Vista-Tool, its not finished yet, but you can already test if you want.

[Windows AIK]

    - This Tool needs Windows AIK for Vista!! (6001.18000.080118-1840), 
      It does not need to be installed, It just needs a copy of it (not the setup).

    - If (WimFltr.sys) is not installed, the Tool can do it for you,
      And it will try to copy (wimgapi.dll) to (system32) if missing. (Administrator?)

    - This Tool has NO support for Windows AIK for Windows7,
      It seems that WAIK-7 works poorly with Vista Images and some functions don't work at all.
      You can have WAIK-7 installed, sinds this tool only needs a copy of WAIK-Vista.


[ChangeLog]
    
    - use of background workers (gui response)
    - all subimages can be done at the same time
    - extra functions like 'recompress, cleanup and delete'
    - tooltips with xml data from image
    - folders can have whitespaces now
    - isobuilder can build iso's larger than 4Gb
    - no more black cmd boxes, output goes to log file now
    - process can be canceled, it will finish current process first
    - program runs on windows 64bit
    - program supports 64bit images


[Some Tips]

    - Don't use a Windows Temp folder for this Tool's Temp Folder.
    - Make sure the Temp folder is large enough.
    - Make sure the temp folder stays closed while using the tool.
    - Your Mount folder needs to be empty.
    - The Tools needs write access to all the folders in the SetupList.
    - And write access to this Tools folder.

Updated to beta 3

Re: Vista-Tool 2.0 beta 3

I have installed WAIK - 6001.18000.080118-1840-kb3aik_pl.iso
when VT2 ask for Windows AIK folder I select C:\Program Files\Windows AIK
and error 2 appears


[Waik Error 1]
    File not found in Waik SubFolders:
        -imagex.exe
        -wimgapi.dll
        -peimg.exe
        -pkgmgr.exe
        -oscdimg.exe
        -expand.exe
    Please Reinstall Waik for Vista

[Waik Error 2]
    File not found in (System32) Folder:
        -wimgapi.dll
    Copy file there or Reinstall Waik for Vista

[Waik Error 3]
    File not found in (System32\drivers) Folder:
        -WimFltr.sys
    Reinstall Waik for Vista


there are
C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\
C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\ia64\
C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\

folders where needed file are stored, why you dont point to search for wimgapi.dll and WimFltr.sys in this folders ??

Re: Vista-Tool 2.0 beta 3

Re: Vista-Tool 2.0 beta 3

i have vista with integrated sp2 - so i want to add newest updates (just few jet)
so, process of adding updates with VT2 seems to goes OK
but after i install this vista on vmware in "Add/Remove Programs" -> "Windows Updates" there is no updates what i've integrated by VT2 - this is good??
if not, how to check (after integrate) does VT2 integrated my updates ??
btw. i has same problem in VT - i saw error message in cmd but cmd always closed very fast and i dont know what exaclty is wrong (the paths and architecture are good)

if this can help in any way...
contents of my updates folder

and i've installe them manually, the 001... and 006... wont installl - windows says its not needed
maybe some error from specific update hang integraton and/or this could be lang problem (polish ver)

btw. there is no "mount" option in VT2 - just to mount and put some my provate files - like it was in VT ???

Re: Vista-Tool 2.0 beta 3

Have to agree, Vista is a piece of crap. When Win 7 comes out on the 22nd and hopefully your Vista-Tool becomes  a Win7-tool you will see a lot more people using it and reporting back, me for one. Please do not drop the idea rather make it Windows 7.

I know a lot hard work went into your Vista-tool but I'm sure the basic structure is very similar to Windows 7.

It's been very hard to move people from XP to Vista, that should change with Windows 7 and your program will become invaluable at that point.

Again, please do not end the program it will become a great resource in the very near future.

Re: Vista-Tool 2.0 beta 3

We're working on our own Win7/Vista tool over here: http://future.siginetsoftware.com/index.php
We're making progress.  It's coded using Qt/C++.  It'll be dependent on DISM.

Re: Vista-Tool 2.0 beta 3

mr_smartepants

Re: Vista-Tool 2.0 beta 3

LOL, we only have a few functions working.  Don't worry, once we get ready, we'll have a beta product for more testing.
But this tool won't be just for drivers...oh no!  I'll do a LOT more. wink
I don't want to spoil the surprise.

Re: Vista-Tool 2.0 beta 3

Hello all, i'm new to driverpack forums, n i'm new to using vista system too, i've tought i've read some additonal thread to copy expand.exe from waik folder if u used vista tools 2 but i've forgot where i've to put the copy?

Check your email.  I don't want to put it back on the FTP because muiz is supposedly trying to restore the sytes server (and it's files).

Re: Vista-Tool 2.0 beta 3

Thanx!

Re: Vista-Tool 2.0 beta 3

The link for v2.0 beta 3 does not work. Does anyone have a link for this file?
I'm a little late to the game here, but I'm in the process of creating an updated Vista disc.
I've recently finished my nLite disc for XP, all updated and perfectly customized, now I'm moving to Vista, then after this I'll look into 7.

EDIT: I suppose I'll just have to use v1.0. sad
