    No XML should be fine, as long as it is relatively easy to interpret... also it should be laid out so it can easily be updated/modified as well.

    As soon as you have at least one component built/structured I can get started on reading the data in.

    I've got the GUI pretty much laid out, i've gone for a bit of an nLite crossed with XPe Target Designer approach

    Awesome. I've already started as well.
    I'm selecting all groups and components for groups. I'm in the middle of getting resources for group.

    Here's the xml structure.

    Code:
    <Groups>
    <Group guid="12345" name="group name">
    	<Component guid="12345" name="component name">
    		<Resource type="file" value="C:\windows\thefile.ext">
    		<Resource type="regKey" value="HKEYLocalMachine\Stuff">
    		<Dependent guid="54321">
    		<Dependent guid="11111">
    	</Component>
    	...more components
    </Group>
    <Group guid="54321" name="the next group">
    ... more components
    </Group>
    </Groups>
    When an item is selected, it would be nice to have the app check if there are any other components that depend on it still on the system and provide a warning. That's why I included the Dependent element.
    I'm still looking into the resources. I'm trying to decipher the resultset from the "GetResourceProps" stored procedure.
    Once I get that figured I'll get you a file without the dependants. Then I'll move on the research dependants.

    Will cease development of the app I was going to work on as this sounds like it will supercede it .... let me know if you need any help.

    camsgs3, this program is for after your installation.
    nlite creates the installation CD, then you install windows, then you run this program to remove even more stuff.

    The purpose of this app is to remove more files from XP, that for some reason nLite was unable to.

    The app will be a post installation application that should allow you to strip those extra MB's. I'm attempting to get my OS and Apps on a 256CF (knubile a 512CF i think) and would appreciate a point, click and remove GUI for stripping XP further ... thus the necessity for an app like this.

    UPDATE: Can successfully turn Windows File Protection on and off in SP2 (about to check SP1 and if I can an pure XP install)

    I'm using a 1G card. A 512 would be way better. I'm only off by about 60 megs. This is including all the codecs, .Net and windows media player.
    The OS itself freshliy installed is down to 380megs so far.
