  1. No, it's only a command line option, not mentioned in Help for a reason. If you not absolutely sure you want it, don't use it.
  2. It does not set this "norpfix" flag by default, but you can set it on command line: "-norpfix".
  3. @AshtonLee.IT We had discussion about the version of BOOTICE, see here. Glad it works now. This slow down with Defender is a bit extreme. But i guess an option to disable realtime monitoring during capture would properly cause one more false positive.
  4. @alacran This tweak was already added with RC2 under the following condition. Free space is smaller than max vhd expanded size - 5%. Without disabled pagefile additional 6GB free space are expected.
  5. Safe mode only loads basic stuff. It properly marks something in registry as done. And next full start will work (we have seen similar in WinPE) One thing would be interesting: Is there a difference using VSS or offline capture?
  6. Then I guess Ctrl+Shift+ESC also don't work. Try to boot in safe mode. It could be a problem with fastboot or drive letter assignment.
  7. Depends what you mean what that. Does the logon fails or does it takes unusually long. Or is it more an frozen explorer.exe as you mentioned taskbar? Can open taskmgr and kill/restart explorer.exe?
  8. Hmm yes, wimlib will capture a 1909 with 18363 in XML and wimgapi with 18362.
  9. @laddanator 4.0.1 should fix command line. Alternative download address: http://jfx.square7.ch/WinNTSetup/ @Atari800XL Sure, please mention this update to your buddies
  10. WinNTSetup 4.0 Final - Added Dark Theme support - Added multicore appling of WIM - Added wimlib 1.13.1 - Added bottice - Added Disable Reserved Storage tweak - Added WIM Capture option - Added apply mode Wimboot:WIMCOPY - Added Hotfix uninstall option - Added Driver Export/Import option - Added LegacyBootMenu checkbox - Added exclude section to Tools\Win10Builds.ini - fixed wimlib apply alters WimBootCompress.ini - Boot code UEFI will be selected as default in case of EFI system partition - WOF decompression of \Bootmgr, \EFI\boot\boot*.efi, \EFI\MICROSOFT\BOOT\BOOTMGFW.EFI - WOF decompression of \Boot\BCD, \EFI\microsoft\boot\BCD - Does not delete MountedDevices key for non sysprep images - Allow creation of expandable VHD with any size - Non fitting expandable VHDs will stop from auto expanding on boot - Workaround wimgapi "PrepopulateList" bug
  11. @alacran There was no such file. If the Win7 USB tweak don't work for you, than should use usb-boot-watcher.
  12. @Sonic, there is no log. With VSS for local installations there should be no need to exclude trouble some files. Yes, if you want it on "recovery image partition" than you have to copy it yourself.
  13. Wimboot:WIMCOPY - copies the wim file into "\System Volume Information" folder of the installation, than apply it in wimboot mode.
  14. Changelog is inside the rar comment: WinNTSetup 4.0 RC2 - added capture mode NONE - added apply mode Wimboot:WIMCOPY - update offreg.dll - allow creation of expandable VHD with any size - non fitting expandable VHDs will stop from auto expanding on boot
  15. Registry settings will be the same on full windows, just the question when to set them. Try at setupcomplete.cmd.
  16. Hi Atari800XL, well you can't change the DPI inside a PE after booting. But you can force it before boot inside the registry. _RegWrite('HKLM\PE_DEF\Control Panel\Desktop', 'Win8DpiScaling', 'REG_DWORD', 1) _RegWrite('HKLM\PE_DEF\Control Panel\Desktop', 'LogPixels', 'REG_DWORD', 168) _RegWrite('HKLM\PE_DEF\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics', 'AppliedDPI', 'REG_DWORD', 168) _RegWrite('HKLM\PE_SOFT\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontDPI', 'LogPixels', 'REG_DWORD', 168)
  17. I thought about it for version 4, but it would have required some GUI changes. So it was to much work for a feature nobody cares about. Maybe for version 5 (in a few years) ...
  18. No, license type detection would require to add a lot non redistributable MS files. Just copy the key and use a PIDKey check tool.
  19. There is no such limit, but the ExclusionList section should not be bigger than 32KB. Already supported on command line, will be added to GUI next version.
  20. Thanks for the new 1.1.9 version. Would be nice if these additional 16 pixel for DarkMode could be optional.
  21. Sure \Boot and \EFI folder should be decompressed, I'll add this. But why you want this for drivers in Windows 10 too?
  22. @alacran Dism uses wimgapi.dll, just like WinNTSetup there is no difference. Of course it will always append a new image to an existing WIM file. Compact apply mode have no problem, it first normal applies and than compresses. It would be an issue if it forgets some files. I don't plan to add wimboot capture mode, it's a deprecated feature. @wimb & @alacran You know that the problem only occurs because you guys replacing the internal WimBootCompress.ini? Stop do that and wimgapi will work correctly.
  23. I took a look with debugger on it. It does not look that wimgapi does anything wrong. It extracts WimBootCompress.ini and reads the PrePopulateList entries. After applying it opens all matching files and calls NtFsControlFile with FSCTL_DELETE_EXTERNAL_BACKING code. (That exactly the same I did in Beta 7) Now the problem is that the function succeeds but the files remain WIM backed. Some fail with error code 0xc000046d - that are your 3 "empty" files. However 0xc000046d means STATUS_OBJECT_NOT_EXTERNALLY_BACKED what makes no sense as the files is a pointer file. Seems this bug is only related to identical files inside WIM, that is not bound by hard links in the image.
  24. Tools\WimBootCompress.ini is actually supposed to help Windows version that does not natively support wimboot/compactOS. So it should only apply to Windows 7/8.x. But it wasn't for some (wimgapi only) cases until beta 8. You can still use it with command line option "/wbc:{WimBootCompress.ini}". It will not replace the internal, but append it.
  25. Hmm guess than this is a bug in wimgapi. It does not do anything special now and should be similar to a: set WIM_SKIP_WIMBOOT_CHECK=1 Dism /Apply-Image /ImageFile:install.wim /Index:1 /ApplyDir:X:\ /WIMBoot /EA
