Cab files for Win7 Pro

In the past I always copied the i386 folder to the local machine, so when making changes or anything that prompted for the Windows disk, I could just repoint to the local copy of the i386 folder.

Since we're in the process of moving everything to Win7 Pro - does anyone know what that has become?  I would like to be able to do the same under Windows 7 now.

thanks

Hi,

You don't need to do that anymore, when you install Windows 7 (actually Windows Vista and later) all the binaries needed for future use are already included, so in case you need to install features or repair the O/S you will not have to provide a media (only in very rare cases where the local repository is corrupted) or copy anything beforehand to a path.
This was done to simplify our lives and to provide consistency for the O/S.
Keep in mind that those binaries are updated on every service pack and every update that gets installed on your systems so you always have an updated repository!

I hope this helped you.

Good to know.  I was wondering why I had not seen anything about this in awhile.
