There is also a new thing about 073 - it will call up the log window whenever any error is found.
Have you also tried the latest beta from Nightman?
I have downloaded and now used 073, this is a nice feature. i have proceeded to make a few more blue screen coasters, so i decided to try something different that has made less blue screens, but more coasters.
i have downloaded and extracted the 073 beta, which is a nice version, i like the look and feel of it. seems like less drag on the host when running it. i downloaded the 'base' and deleted all the projects directory. using the download feature i added vistape.com/beta as Nuno Brito has suggested and downloaded only beta content, I only downloaded the 'tools' and the build scripts listed as 1-6, and the build ISO scrip.
this has produced positive results. i have created a bootable cd that is minimal in size, and most importantly, doesnt blue screen. i have now tested it in 4 different machines with positive results all around. the way i am proceeding is to download ONE and only ONE additional script at a time, delete the tmp, iso, and target directories and then re-build the the ISO. then burn and boot, and repeat. d/l, build, burn, boot, and repeat. after about the 8th cd or so, i am still meeting satisfactory results.
while you and many others will likely agree with me this is a laborious task that wastes time and blank media, i will gladly say that the end result if i can ever reach it will be meet with pride and glee.
i only have about 90 more build,burn,boot,and repeat sessions to go before i am as close as i wish i already was.
good job with the scripts and software, keep it up, look forward to the next stable/beta release.
since nightman and Nuno see to be the most prominent names i have seen when referencing anything related to vista PE, and both are following this thread, i will ask my question here. if it needs to be moved elsewhere please let me know and i will ask elsewhere.
i really want to force PE to recognize my usb thumbdrive as drive letter Z. is this possible and i so how? i have created some desktop and start menu shortcuts to point to programs that are present on the thumbdrive. rather than update the cd on a daily or even weekly basis i would rather have PE recognize my thumbdrive as Z:\ , copy my programs and the updates to the thumbdrive and have everything work all honky dory in his fashion. i have wondered if naming a drive in windows properties to something/anything will prompt windows to assign the drive letter based on the name with no such luck.
also along the lines as that subject goes, some scripts for some programs install desktop and start menu shortcuts to PE ISO. i would like to remove the shortcuts, is there such a file that i can edit that will allow me to change which shortcuts are enable, created or removed upon boot? I am using the explorer shell.
thanks for the words of encouragement.
