Software update: NTLite 1.0.0 build 2253 beta

Spread the love

Dino Nuhagic is developing NTLite, a program that allows users to create a custom-built Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 installation CD. Dino is no stranger to this field, as he is also the creator of nLite and vLite, which do the same thing, but for Windows XP and Vista.

NTLite can, among other things, remove unused components and add hotfixes, updates and drivers. In addition, it is possible to make many settings, apply tweaks and answer questions that arise during installation, such as the registration key, user accounts and network settings. In this way, the program shortens the installation time.

New is that NTLite can also modify an already installed Windows. Also new is that there are different versions. The basic version is free, but has limited functionality. For example, only a limited number of components can be removed and it is not possible to modify an existing installation. The full version costs just under 45 euros and a commercial license can also be purchased. The changelog since build 2021 can be found below.
