My .ini file and it does not work. It will remember the last folder used instead of reading the directories from the .ini.

It's designed that way to remember all changes.

Yes but If I load this inf file it still does not change the folder paths. Is that normal?

Please try it and confirm.

These new ini settings only set the default values, it will not override existing folders options.

This does not help anybody. The idea of an ini file is to overwrite any existing values. Hence load ini file.

A correct way was the program to remember the previous paths used BUT if a .ini file was loaded, it will overwrite the previous used values.

Hi JFX..

 

Out of five compression modes which one is best in term of Space Saving and Performance ?

Can anybody please differentiate among all five modes ?

Than differs from the usual?

The compact option enables the new system compression (Compact OS) of windows 10.

You can read here about Compact OS, single-instancing, and image optimization

 

In addition it allows you to choose between the supported compression algorithms.

 

As a rule of thumb one can say the stronger the compression the slower the file access.

Interesting. But I am guessing the compression thing wouldnt be super slow on an SSD and be worth the space saving on the SSD?

Yes, wimboot/compact is all about space saving.

In general you will not noticed the decompression that happens while accessing the files.

In theory with a fast CPU and a very slow hard disk, you could even have a small speed gain.

Hi commiethebeastie,

 

Thanks for the report. WinNTSetup requires the XML information from a wimfile.

A wimlib captured wim is missing most of them, so the wim file is not accepted.

 

I added a workaround in version 3.8.5.5, please try again.

Could you please consider my request above, about overwriting default values by importing an .ini file? And also consider adding an option of selecting the edition by cmd. It always defaults to the first entry, which is either Home or Basic.

Thank you.

an option of selecting the edition by cmd.

Have you tried this (from the first post):

 

/wimindex:n - defines the edition inside install.wim which should be installed beginning with 1 (like in the combo box Edition)
