  1. I thought I'd make a friendly request here for someone to compile the latest version of install_wim_tweak to run on .NET4(.6). This way, one shouldn't have install an entire .NET runtime on Windows 10 in order remove a couple of components.


    Done. Check the first page.


    The only thing I did was to download the source, change .NET version in project properties and build :)

  4. It used pkgmgr to remove the packages, it's that program that decides to leave the .mum/.cat files in there.


    If I use install_wim_tweak.exe /o to takewoner ship on my computer... How I can restore the default permissions?

    Now I can't remove WAIK 3.0 for windows 7!!! :wacko:

    I must retore manually the permissions for system :blink:

    It automatically restores default permissions after its made the packages visible. Your problem may be because the 'Owners' key might have been deleted, there is a switch that prevents that but i cant remember what it is.

  5. If you use v1.4.4, and then after run it again with /h command it will restore all values (Visibility) to default.

    Hi legolash,

    The old tweak.exe used the exit code -532459699 to define the error "registry file not found" when the path was inexistent or incorrect. Could make something similar on your version? For instance if the program finished successfully return errorlevel 0 if registry file not found then return errorlevel 1 etc.

    I use it in my batch and it would really be useful for me.

    Done, it will return error code -532459699

    What's wrong? :-O

    C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools>d:\programy\install_wim_tweak.exe /p



    ---------Registry Tweak Tool v1.3.8--------

    ---------------for Windows 6.x-------------

    ---------Created by Michał Wnuowski--------

    -----------Modified by Legolash2o----------


    MountPath : "e:\mount"


    Creating BKP of registry file... OK

    Mounting registry file... OK

    Taking Ownership... OK

    Editing 'Packages' subkeys 243/243OK

    Editing 'PackagesPending' subkeys FAIL

    Unhandled error occured.

    Object reference not set to an instance of an object.


    Unmounting key... OK

    Restoring Backup... OK

    Removing Backup file... OK

    This issue was caused because PackagePending subkey could not be found, in v1.4.4 it will just skip this and continue if not found.

  6. Nothing too exotic.

    magex /export e:\Win7\sources\install.wim 4 e:\install.wim

    cut, replace the original

    install_wim_tweak.exe /p e:\mount /l

    The report lists it like so:













    Ok I take it partially back, because the editions are not listed for all the packages. It's the weird version numbers. Why is it so? I thought this would be what'd it look like after SP installation, but this is a disk with SP already included straight from MSDN...

    Do I need to remove each package for every component to get rid of it completely?

    It's working exactly how it should. If you want you can just run...

    install_wim_tweak.exe /p "e:\mount" /c Microsoft-Windows-Security-SPP-Component-SKU /r

    That should remove them all :)

    if you type in

    Dism.exe /image:E:\mount /get-packages /format:table

    they should be removed. install_wim_tweak will still list them even if they are removed, as the key still remains in the registry.

  7. v1.3.6 has been released, if you add /r when using the /c command it will remove the package :D

    install_wim_tweak.exe /p "C:\Mount" /c Microsoft-Hyper-V-Guest-Integration-Drivers-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.1.7601.17514 /r

    install_wim_tweak.exe /p "C:\Mount" /c Microsoft-Hyper-V /r

    install_wim_tweak.exe /p "C:\Mount" /c Microsoft-Windows-LocalPack /r

  8. awesome! :)


    Question! I previously exported only Professional version from my installation and put the image back. After that I ran this tweak and had packages listed. There's like 500 of them, most listed for each Windows edition. Does that work as intended?

    What command did you exactly run? there may be abit more if there are updates installed/integrated :)

  9. No problem, as i was working on W7T i noticed another few bugs so i fixed them so i'm now on 1.3.4 lol. I've managed to get the Component Removal in AIO Integrator working so you can remove packages from all versions automatically :D

  10. Hello, i was wondering if any knows the c# code to mount an image and display its progress (%) in text form i.e. "Mounting 3% Complete").

    I can mount the image fine but i can't get it to display it's progress. I will display below what code i have...

    Thanks,much appreciated! :)
