Windows 7: Reinstalling Windows Components?

Reinstalling Windows Components?

Used RT Seven Lite to slim down windows, but may have done a little too much in terms of removing Windows services (RasMan, etc.). Is there a way to reinstall the Windows components?

I did try to manually create the services using sc create and trying to duplicate the service from another box, but so far it hasn't worked out that well

Hello l1fe, welcome to Seven Forums!

You'll have nothing but issues trying to run a crippled version of Windows 7, this isn't your gran'dads XP, it doesn't like to have services 'slimmed-down'; you'll be better off doing a new clean install with a full version and using some of these suggestions to help but it's not needed.

The software in question you used rips things out. You cannot get them back.
