How to Delete Apps via setup complete in ISO?


Recommended Posts

Good morning

I want to create an ISO of W10 removing apps that are unnecessary.
For example if I want to delete Get Office just run a powershell command like this:

powershell "Get-AppxPackage -allusers *officehub* | Remove-AppxPackage" > NUL 2>&1


This command then I insert it in a batch file

@echo off

powershell "Get-AppxPackage -allusers *officehub* | Remove-AppxPackage" > NUL 2>&1



This command then I insert it into a batch file (Delete_GetOffice.bat)

This file is placed in the "Software" folder in the root of the ISO of Windows 10


Then I created the file Setupcomplete.cmd


@echo off

for %%w IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%w:\sources\install.wim SET CDROM=%%w:

REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx
SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

REG ADD %KEY% /v Flags /t REG_DWORD /d "20" /f

REG ADD %KEY% /V Title /D "Post Installation..." /f  >NUL


REG ADD %KEY%\01 /VE /D "Delete_GetOffice" /f  >NUL
REG ADD %KEY%\01 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\Software\Delete_GetOffice.bat" /f  >NUL




and inserted in ISO of Windows 10





During the nstallation RunOnce runs normally and Powershell command brings up a notice of elimination the App.
But when I open the start menu appears GetOffice yet.
To be sure that the command is correct, you copy the batch file on the desktop and launch the app GetOffice is eliminated normally.
I do not understand why so run Once the app is not deleted, mistake in the procedure?


Thank you

if i am right the $OEM$ folder should be in image Root folder not in sources folder 


a small suggestion if you are running batch script just insert that script in main  .cmd file itself dont create multiple batch files unless you need to run more batch process with system restarts
