thank you ever so much for ur detailed reply, jfx. so, if i have understood correctly, winntsetup is already prepared to accept instructions from a file called MySoftware.txt if it finds it in the \Tools\MinWin\Default\Remove folder, right?

The name does not matter, just add a .txt file to \Tools\MinWin\Default\Remove folder.
There is nothing hard coded, profile should be entirely under control of the user.

1+ question for jfx, or anyone else, for that matter, to answer: what is the advantage of having the wimfile inside the vhd if one applies the wimboot:wimcopy way relative to plain wimboot mode (with wimfile outside, elsewhere)?

Well, you will have a stand alone VHD WIMBoot Windows, that can be easily use in a Virtual Machine.
Normal WIMBoot mode will have you to copy WIM file to a NTFS partition before.
It was quite useful for me, example for P2V copies,
however up coming beta version will have a better option for this scenario.

Yes, there are some changes to the default minwin profile.
Properly best if you compare old and new profile folder with something like WinDiff or WinMerge.

Mega and Mediafire link at the end of the first post.

Greetings to all. I have been using this program for many years. Many thanks to the author. The speed of image creation has increased significantly. Moved my system to 3 different computers. Everything is great. Good luck and success in development.

well, I have just tried it and, ... what can I say, after some due personal adjustment, it works. the free-space gain is about a few hundred megs. I could not take full advantage of the shrinking, owing to my system's apparent need for systemapps, which forced me to place a ! in front of the string concerned. this may be due to the fact that it is a windows11, so I do not know if what I am saying applies to most other ppl's systems. those who know better, pls say anymore.
