    Software used: RT7Lite, WinToolKit, GImageX, vLite and RT7Booster

    Notes:
    Portable Devices are still working even the if the native service was removed.
    Bluetooth still works if you have drivers for you adapter/integrated bluetooth hardware.
    I have added 187 fonts for Office 2007/2010, read this: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...installed-with-microsoft-office-2010-products
    RT7Lite App Launcher removed from registry, System32 and SysWOW64 because are useless.
    vLite removed from registry because its useless.
    Microsoft Office 2007/2010 still works perfectly.
    Net Framework 3.5 was kept because is required.
    You can still install Net Framework 4.0, 4.5, 4.5.2 and 4.6.2!

    Warnings:
    Don't remove "ieproxy.dll" from Program Files/Internet Explorer because its used by explorer.exe, removing this will brick your shell!!!
    Content of "Backup" folder was removed from WinSXS, so Windows Update is bricked and no longer works!!!
    Don't integrate updates into those isos because Windows Update is bricked like i said before, otherwise you get errors while installing Windows or corruption of install.wim!!!
    You can't make AIO (AllInOne) from multiple install.wim from those isos because of removed editions, every .iso has its own edition!!!
    Don't complain about removed features, search them on google from this list before you install Windows!!!
    Internet Explorer was removed and i haven't integrated other alternative, so here's what you can do:
    a. Put an installer file from another browser on your media installation.
    b. You can integrate standalone installer from another browser (i recommend google chrome), for integration you can use WinToolKit or NTlite!

    So it works good with 64bit DAWs or is it risky?

    ??? Maybe include the entire paragraph at least? A Windows without System32 and SysWOW64 is unusable anyway. It says: RT7Lite App Launcher removed from registry, System32 and SysWOW64 because are useless.

    Pretty sure that means the RT7Lite App Launcher, whatever it is, was removed from:

    1) registry
    2) system32
    3) syswow64

    Because "it's" useless.

    Installed and tested Ableton Live x64 and some plugins. I have installed everything I use and it's working fine. You can see that no serious component was removed. It's the same windows 7 with some outdated bloats removed and some services disabled. One strange thing I found is that Auslogics Registry Cleaner removed more than 1000 registry entries after clean install. It was less than 400 with normal previous builds.

    Haven't tested it, but usually the problem with Lite Windows versions is that they can't make updates, specially major updates (Service Pack and later equivalents). Still, Windows 7 isn't supposed to have another one.

    Edit: ok, that's also the issue in this one

    Just installed it in a virtual machine for Vienna Ensemble Pro and AudioUtopia plug-ins and works perfectly. Windows folder is around 5Gb and I allocated a 64 GB disk space (plus a 15 Gigs nexus installation, then another few Gigs for Altiverb & Slate reverb, 20 Gigs free remaining).

    It's a fairly old OS, I would not dare to expose it online anymore. But offline, with no antivirus and with only the needed apps installed (daw & plug-ins) it simply rocks.

    Don't know if I got your question right so apologies for stating the obvious in parts of my reply:

    The Windows version I used is Ultimate 64-bit.
    Vienna Ensemble Pro comes with two separate servers, one is 32-bit and loads only 32-bit plug-ins, the other one is 64-bit and loads only 64-bit plugins.
    Both servers can run at the same time (and they do on this particular installation as Win64 can run 32-bit applications)
    Both servers can be accesses simultaneously from a DAW project
    So all 32-bit (Nexus, Sylenth and that's all I have actually) work in parallel with the rest of 64-bit FX and VST instruments.

    Why do lite-tweakers always remove RDP? I checked with NTLite and it's fairly small (under 70MB with Terminal Server App).
    It's that one component which cannot be fully replaced by 3rd party app, yet all lite versions have it removed. :snuffy:

    Agreed. Besides, you can just disable the service.

    I think this version is either broken or just a bad joke...

    Since I needed to refresh my 2009/10 laptop I decided to try this version (HP x64) over other versions. All I can say is that is basically trash and a waste of time. Basically installation driver is basically broken, you can't access you the NET and even if you download all the correct drivers like I did it won't do nothing except saying that drivers are missing. Even the display driver wich is supported by defaul by W7 couldn't load the correct resolution for display and such. I think that everybody can open and mess up with W7 release but create a build that works it need time and skill is not just a everyday job. Maybe the creator didn't think about laptop or compatibilities, maybe it works for him but HP users (an maybe others too) stay hella away from this.

    If somebody proves me I'm wrong I'm here for a discussion. Good day everybody.

    If you want a proper windows dist - go and get it from the ms official site. Every custom build from young talented wanna be programmer is always a pain. :shalom:

    HP Pavilion Core i5 2ng gen here. All the drivers worked for me. Yes, It doesn't support any driver by default. I installed them from HP site and everything installed perfectly. One major problem with this version is that many important updates are not present in it. Some newer apps need those updates to work. But all Audio Production related apps worked fine in it.

    I am primarily using Win 10 Enterprise N LTSB which I recommend the most. LTSB requires a Windows 10 Enterprise license which is only available via a Volume Licensing agreement. But a p2p group called Generation2 made it possible for us to try/use it.

    My recommendation:-

    Win 10 Enterprise N LTSB or Win 7 (only telemetry updates excluded) > Win 8.1 > Win 10 (Home/Pro/Enterprise (Highly Bloated)).

    Win 10 Enterprise N LTSB excludes cortana, edge, store, all apps. There is no photo viewer present by default. Only ms paint is present. Uses old win 7 calculator. Only security and stability updates will come. No windows media player and media codecs by default. But they can be added via update file. Just open settings app and turn off everything in privacy settings. And enjoy the super stable experience.
    IMHO Win 10 Enterprise N LTSB is the only usable Win 10 edition. Every other Win 10 edition is getting bloated.
