NTLite is a utility program that was designed to create Microsoft Windows installation packages based on the images of Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2012 and up. The program is distributed on a paid basis but also gives users free license with limited functions. This is what we will describe further.
The program’s work is based on editing the Windows image’s content. The developers recommend using only “clean” installations of the platform as a base. NTLite allows you to modify the content of the Windows installation images by adding and deleting the OS components, such as drivers, language packages, applications, updates, change the installation order and default values of parameters. Thus, you can switch off the firewall, Windows Defender and accounts control. This way you can create installation packages for personal use that contain many custom design themes, cursors, fonts or special versions for close corporate environment with limited access rights, inactive services and games.
You can include the installation of various network services, libraries and frameworks, editors and professional IDE into the package. It will be useful for software developers, designers, computer engineers, testers and network administrators.
NTLite has intuitive interface and the option to choose color theme. It is not possible to expand the toolbar, unfortunately.
NTLite is an excellent product for a wide range of tasks that helps to compile various Windows installation packages – custom images for gamers and game computers that are compatible for technical support specialists and service centers, contain pre-installed programs for engineers and developers, limited for usage only inside enterprises and organizations, lightweight for old hardware platforms, etc.
