      I believe you can find a modified Live installer here in the forums somewhere.

      But if you want to do it yourself:

      Download the Live installer from

      Download a small utility called Resource Hacker to modify the installer from

      Now open the wlsetup-web.exe file with resource hacker.

      Go to the CONFIG -> CONFIG0 -> 0 key and locate the text:


      Change it to:


      Press the Compile Script button and save the file.

      You can now use the installer to get all the Live applications.

      I didn’t test the Toolbar and Family Safety, but Messenger, Mail, Photo Gallery, Writer, and Movie Maker work flawlessly.
