It's up! v0.0.0.10 Alpha is up!

Coder for Life - Project - Windows 7 Boot Updater

I tested it the best I could in VirtualBox, however I found out that Windows 7 x64 can NEVER resume in VirtualBox, so I had to skip all 64-bit winresume tests.

Hope that this version is much more successful overall. I will be emailing everyone who emailed me through my website tomorrow, so you guys get a "sneak peak".

A couple of major notes about this version:
  • It now requires .NET Framework 4.0 (unless you download a version built for .NET Framework 2.0 which I will be fading out)
  • The BS7 format changed so old boot skins won't work. If you want yours converted, I can do it for you.
If this version is working well, I will try to release a beta soon, marking the fact that it isn't unstable anymore. My next planned features are:
  • Better defaults for winload/winresume based on BCD data (I can find out exactly the winload and winresume you are using)
  • Full image backgrounds
  • An installer system and a sharing website

If anyone is looking for a good read, look at this: FGA: The Windows NT 6 boot process


@marcusj0015
I had an old-ish backup (approximately right before Alpha 9 was released). I just made a backup and will be setting it up to do automatic backups from now on... I learned my lesson.

@marcusj0015
Due to "TrustedInstaller" owning all the files I need to modify, CMD scripts don't really work. My program does a bunch of work to make the file accessible. Additionally, just providing modded files means that as soon as a Windows Update comes along, everyone has to make a new installer! Seeing that I now have a DLL version of my program, and a single call can do the update, I just need to make the right package!

@georg, check your "Windows 7 SP1"

the REAL SP1 gets released today on MSDN.

@Thaimin,
that's true, you could have the takeown command in the cmd file that gets deployed, but it's best you have an actual patcher patch the actual files that are already installed.

@Thaimin,

thank you SO much for writing this app, back when i was thinking about it, and trying to get this project off the ground, you came along, and made my dream come true, thanks.

@Thaimin, you said that you were working with business's like dell, that win7 animation in there comercials, is that your app doing that?

@Joakim
thanks for finding some/all the hacks, you also helped make my dream come true.

well, the new version takes like 2 minutes to load for me, but i have aero disabled on this installation.

and,no you probably DO NOT have Windows 7 SP1 RTM.

the version you have is a leaked version, the final version isn't out yet.

the FINAL SP1 comes out today, on technet/MSDN and on 2/22/11 on Windows Update/Microsoft.com
