02May nLite – Windows Installation Customizer

nLite Windows installation customizer logoHave you ever needed special Windows installation image, with integrated drivers or added patches/service packs etc.? I did. To install Windows on RAID array I had to find solution. And I found nLite – Windows Installation Customizer.

nLite is a tool for pre-installation Windows configuration and component removal at your choice. Optional bootable image ready for burning on media or testing in virtual machines.
With nLite you will be able to have Windows installation which on install does not include, or even contain on media, the unwanted components.


  • Service Pack Integration
  • Component Removal
  • Unattended Setup
  • Driver Integration
  • Hotfixes Integration
  • Tweaks
  • Services Configuration
  • Patches
  • Bootable ISO creation

nLite supports Windows 2000, XP x86/x64 and 2003 x86/x64 in all languages.
It needs .NET Framework 2.0 in order to run… Check if you have it already, maybe on some of your CDs before downloading if your connection is slow.

nLite allows you to customize your installation of Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows 2003. You can integrate service packs and hotfixes from Microsoft directly into your windows distribution files without having to re-download and install them every time you need to re-install windows.

There is also the option to remove unwanted components from within Windows. Many applications are automatically included every time windows is installed. Not every person needs or even wants all of these applications which Microsoft considers to be necessary. By removing these unwanted components you can free up space within your setup and ultimately save space on your hard drive after installation.

nLite also provides a way to customize your installation by allowing numerous tweaks to the way Windows looks and operates after it has been installed. You can even bypass Microsoft’s bulky unattended setup instructions and do it the easy way. The nLite way!

06Feb Freeware DVD files fix tool

FixVTS is a very tiny tool that allows you to adjust your DVD files into better DVD compliance, so they can be opened in DVDShrink or VobBlanker. FixVTS does a similar job as what’s called an IFOEdit Mock Strip, but only adjust as little information as possible in the VOB and IFO files to allow it to open in a other appication while keeping the DVD as original as possible.

You would use FixVTS if you messed up your DVD, for example by applying the wrong tool, or aborting in the middle of some processing, and the result can no longer be used. Another good use is for DVDs that have been authored with deliberate “errors” in the IFO or VOB files, such that they still play on your player, but won’t open in DVD editing tools such as DVDShrink, VobBlanker and others.

This is a must have for me as a DVD recorder owner. For me it fixed Nero error “File ‘VIDEO_TS.VOB’ is not referenced and should not be present”.
