    Detected unsupported Windows Version (while trying to dnld Updates)

    Yeah, I noticed that the version number stayed the same. Is this intentional? (Will plan to dnld and test latest version tonight and report back. Tnx.)

    Detected unsupported Windows Version (while trying to dnld Updates)

    Am running NTLite 2.1.2.8047 on a friend's Acer Laptop. After Activating NTLite for the latest features, I tried downloading Updates. While Updates has worked in the past on this laptop, it did not work today. The message presented by NTLite was: "Detected unsupported Windows Version." There...

    NTLite reports "Unreadable or unsupported file: C:\Recovery\Customizations\usmt.ppkg"

    This problem still persists for me. (Even tho I see something about it being fixed in an earlier release of NTLite. (A regression error.)) I updated to NTLite 2.1.2.8047. I even Activated it. When I load the Live Windows image, I still get "Unreadable or unsupported c:/ ... /usmt.ppkg. Is...

    NTLite reports "Unreadable or unsupported file: C:\Recovery\Customizations\usmt.ppkg"

    For what it's worth, the Win10 Laptop updates itself via Microsoft's automatic (forced) updates. Whereas my Dell Desktop is frozen at a nearly vanilla version of Win10. (That is, no CU's on my Dell Desktop.)

    NTLite reports "Unreadable or unsupported file: C:\Recovery\Customizations\usmt.ppkg"

    Okay I installed .7917 on my Dell Desktop. As with updating NTLite on my friend's Laptop, I did not re-Activate NTLite. In this instance (my desktop), NTLite does NOT report an "Unreadable or unsupported file: C:\Recovery\Customizations\usmt.ppkg" So, this appears to be a two variable problem...

    NTLite reports "Unreadable or unsupported file: C:\Recovery\Customizations\usmt.ppkg"

    I tried .7917. No change. Still getting this report. I'll plan to try .7917 on my desktop later today to see if I get the same behavior from NTLite.

    NTLite reports "Unreadable or unsupported file: C:\Recovery\Customizations\usmt.ppkg"

    Oops. I spoke too soon (regarding the striked-out text, below). This problem is following NTLite. Well, apparently not an NTLite problem, per se. First, one reason that I couldn't see the Recovery directory was because I had set the visibility of System Files to Hidden on my friend's laptop...

    NTLite reports "Unreadable or unsupported file: C:\Recovery\Customizations\usmt.ppkg"

    I just re-ran NTLite on a friend's Win10 Laptop (Acer brand) to remove reinstalls after a recent (forced) Win10 CU. I had installed - and activated - NTLite on this laptop in March. When I ran NTLite today (May 11), I got a notice that there was a newer version of NTLite. Would I like to...

    Some questions

    Or maybe it's because, when I install Windows, I don't have an Internet connection? And so MS can't create an online account for me from which to snoop?

    Some questions

    Apparently I did something right with NTLite. 'Cause no streams here.

    Some questions

    I've never heard of "streams" before. So I went to Sordum's website to learn about Streams Remover. He says that all files on an NTFS volume have a stream attribute. But I looked at files in my download folder (which I download to another partition - not the standard Windows' "download"...

    How To - NTLite Download Updates Feature

    I just ran NTLIte v 2.1.0.7820 on my Win10 Home, just to see if I needed to do anything to my Win10. When checking for updates, I noticed that a KB is labeled as a "Servicing Stack Update (Legacy). See text underlined in blue in the screen shot. I'm wondering what the importance of the...

    Bug: RunOnce Autoruns Set By NTLite Fail to Execute and Never Disappear

    I remember seeing something similar years ago when running NTLite. (I reported it in the forum somewhere.) I would see a stuck "RunOnce" in either AutoRuns or CCleaner. For a while after that, I used to only run NTLite from Admin - and then reboot into Admin immediately after, in case it was a...

    Integration drivers

    There is a product (well, as much as 'software' is a product) in the works that might be able to restore slow SSD's. Here is a (free) precursor to it. Some people say that just running the ReadSpeed benchmark wakes up their SSD's garbage collector and restores some performance. (Note: At this...
