SMB 1.0 client not checked when loading preset

Hi,

Steps to reproduce :

1. Load an W10 1809 pro image​
2. Check Configure>Features : SMB 1.0/CIFS Client (how it looks before and after checked)
3. Save preset that will contain :​
XML:
    <Features>
        <Feature name="SMB1Protocol">true</Feature>
    </Features>

4. Unload and reload the same image​
5. Load/Overwrite saved preset​


Result :

The SMB 1.0/CIFS Client is not checked while its parent is greyedout. That’s confusing. You don’t really know the option status.

I found out that when this image installed, all SMB 1.0 features are activated, not just the client.

Hi freMea and Fil,

thanks for reporting it, I did have this on the radar and fixed the core issue in 7080, but a few things to explain why you still had the problem:

- if I just select SMB Client with build 7080 and newer, and apply, it is fixed, or should I say re-loading the image it shows just the Client enabled
- however if a step is added in-between setting and applying, to save and reload the preset, that's a separate point and you are right
- all of this complexity stems from the point that Windows have default states for features when their parents are enabled, even if not enabled themselves explicitly

Fixed for next on Tuesday, tested full image and live install and only Client was enabled at the end.
Presets saved with the versions after the build 7095 will have the fix.

At least now, when I check the option state after installing Windows 1903, only the client is checked as intended instead of the all SMB 1.0 features.

Yeah, I'll send you a pre-release in case you need more stable preset loading, I won't be rushing any releases today.

Not the one making excuses, but this one is a special so have to mention it.
My PC water-cooling pump just died today...wasn't running dry, don't have a clue why would it happen. It took 15 seconds of loud noise and case shaking.

Good thing I had a spare, but now I lost time and focus, will solve some more reports before releasing a new version.
Ramping up after the summer recharge, always surprises me how much one has to be "in it" for it all to click into place.

Agreed. I can only do a few days of 'Liting before my brain is fried.

I really just use NTLite to avoid getting my hands dirty with the command line and the ADK. Filthy fiddly things! still angry about the awful documentation for the windows 7 WAIK from back in the day.

I bought NTLite when I was thinking of doing a clean Refresh of Win7 about a year after the Convenience Rollup came out. I needed a way to slipstream my AMD RAID drivers into the install. Of course, having a way to slipstream in all the updates since the CR would be nice too.

And I wanted to remove IE before install. (Which I subsequently found wasn't the best procedure for my case.)

I started searching the web for slipstreaming, and for the old HFSlip. I had used nlite before on XP. Fortunately the search engines pointed me to the new NTLite.

After figuring out how to get the RAID driver installed for my case (I had to remove all the OEM hard disk drivers for it to work) it occurred to me that I could slim down my build by removing unneeded fonts, keyboards and languages.

And then, of course, the Removals.

I mostly did them for security reasons. (Aren't you glad you've removed Remote Desktop stuff, in light of the hacks lately?)

But then removals became an obsession - "Let's see, what else can I remove?"

Every now and then I have to reset myself, by reminding myself that my initial goal was to get the RAID drivers installed. Anything after that is "icing on the cake," as we say here. That is, I don't have to remove every thing. Most is good enough.

The funny thing is, windows 10 rarely needs drivers added to install successfully anymore. Perhaps I'm not running the right hardware?

In fact, perhaps the only reason I use NTLite (anymore) is to avoid hearing friggin Cortana's noises during install. Still worth buying the licensed version just to support the author in endless pursuit of that objective.

ahazuarus I could never get my head around WAIK etc, too sodding complicated. You do realise that buying a license helps feed nuhi's liting addiction :D

pmikep Just ripping out keyboards languages fonts and 3rd party drivers gives good gains on w7, been saying it for years. If i am correct w7 has nearly 1gb of 3rd party drivers, 800mb+ at least, they are the free/dont break much removals and i love em. They are the things nuhi has always given us and what other programs do not.

removals became an obsession - "Let's see, what else can I remove?"
W7 at 1.16gb installed, i dont know what you mean :D Its worse than an obsession, its a bloody addiction is what it is and nuhi is our dealer :D
