Post-Setup is Greyed out in NTLITE v1.75.6842 32bit

Mr NUHI,

In the lastest version when I try to pick out the WIM versions to add Post-Setup to the checkmark places are greyed out and I'm unable to click the additional WIMS to apply to. The other items (integrate, features, drivers, etc) work fine and I'm able to select them. I like to do Win 7 Home Premium and Win 7 Professional at the same time and up until now I have been able to but since the last version I have been unable to do so.

Please advise Mr NUHI as I await your assistance and I thank you.

If you are referring to the Apply page and if you haven't, select 'Save image' instead of 'Save and trim'.

Mr Kasual I am referring to the Apply page and I have selected "Save image". The curious thing is that the message "Automate-Post- Setup" is not showing in the Total Pending Tasks Overview Window and I can't select both Wims or any for that matter.

"Automate-Post- Setup" is applied by default to all image editions in the wim and if you want it semi-unattended (with option to select an edition), in unattended page check "Dual architecture" check boxand it applies to all editions in the wim.

If you unattend but don't check "Dual architecture", only the loaded image will be pre-selected to install.

My2GirlsDad, as Kasual said, the Post-setup propagation is executed at the end of setup for all editions by default.
Agreed it's not shown in the UI, and it would be nice to have an option to separate it.
Will be working on it, thanks for the feedback.

My2GirlsDad, if you want to have it separated for specific edition, you can try this code at the beginning:

Code:
reg query "hklm\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion" /v "editionid" | findstr /i "starter" &&if not errorlevel 1 call :starter
reg query "hklm\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion" /v "editionid" | findstr /i "homebasic" &&if not errorlevel 1 call :basic
reg query "hklm\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion" /v "editionid" | findstr /i "homepremium" &&if not errorlevel 1 call :premium
reg query "hklm\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion" /v "editionid" | findstr /i "professional" &&if not errorlevel 1 call :pro
reg query "hklm\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion" /v "editionid" | findstr /i "ultimate" &&if not errorlevel 1 call :ult
goto :common

:starter
...
:basic
...
:premium
...
:pro
...
:ult
...

:: common script below ::
:common

Thank you Mr. NUHI and Mr. Kasual for your responses but I am a little confused.

On previous versions when I ran NTLite there was an option to include Post Setup Programs. I have loaded the programs on the "Configuration Page". Then you go to the "Apply Page" and click the "Automate-Post- Setup" button and check the Wims you want it applied to with the default Wim already check.

Now the problem I am having is the whole "Automate-Post- Setup" area is greyed out (with the default Wim checked). I am unable to check any additional Wims to process. By the way I am not using the "Automate-Unattended" and the other "Automates" are showing correctly and additional Wims can be checked.

Thank you for your time.

I understand this:
Additional wims = not editions in the same wim but additional wims loaded

That would make sense to your statement but I haven't seen to apply anything to other mounted wims, only to other editions (mounted or not) in the same wim, NTLite automount editions in the same wims if needed. I don't edit wims with more than 1 edition in the last monts.

The settings in Post-Setup is applied to all editions by default as it will be located in "a common" place from where it is run. I have always seen the options "Automate - ..." greyed out but found out why (is applied to all editions).
