  1. Thank you for your reply. As I thought there's no .cab for MSE, I also find it hard to get the latest definitions .cab files. MS offers it as .exe for offline download and install but I can't find the .cab file which is downloaded by Windows Update (KB2310138 (Definition 1.165.1048.0). Well, but that's ok since I am going to try your way. When I try to access cataloges you mention Windows says you don't have permission, but eventually lets me in and lets me copy whatever I want. Just to make sure if I got you right: the folders are: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Definition Updates and then: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Definition Updates\{1BCF080C-FF75-498B-A624-9FDE12884678} and C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Definition Updates\{AF144843-5794-4886-9922-84EAA5DD11D2} These two contain files, especially the latter - there are other folders in the definition update directory (Backup, Updates, NISBackup) but they are empty. Did you mean these two? cheers, eveafterdark
  2. Hello everyone, maybe someone has been through that and has knowledge to share is there a .cab file for mseinstall.exe (microsoft security essentials) so that I could add it to an offline image using dism ? I did some searching but found none, so I guess there's no .cab or msu for it ... ? the other thing - I suppose I could add the .exe to silent installers (with WinToolKit) but then I was wondering - is it possible to add Definition Update for Microsoft Security Essentials KB2310138 (Definition 1.165.1048.0) ? it is the package windows wants to download for ms security essentials after a fresh install and of course I wouldn't like to download it everytime I make a fresh install. By "add" I mean add it to an offline image with dism, the same way I add e.g. IE11 or prerequsities for IE11. (the way I create my images is I first do things I can do using command line and for the rest I go for wintoolkit) First thought is it does not make any sense to add updates (virus def) while there is no program installed yet that could use these definitions. But let's say I did that, and then I go to Wintoolkit and add mse.exe (silent installer). Will it work ? I mean will the antivirus program use these definitions and updates itself without downloading them? I'll try to do that myself but if anyone tried this before, I'll be glad to hear some feedback Cheers, eveafterdark
  3. Thank you guys. I installed ADK 8.0 and had more less the same problems servicing offline Win 7 image as with 8.1 plus found the very mounting/unmounting process slower than with 8.1. When I tried to use Wintoolkit on a mounted image (component removal) I had the same situation as I described in the first post (when using ADK 8.1) Also, I tried to remove components with install_wim_tweak after I mounted the image with cmd line, and the whole process of removing just froze at some time and that was it. I didn't try to remove packages with dism commands so I can't say how it works with ADK 8.0 I guess the whole backwards compatibility just doesn't work that well, at least with me running x64 Win 7SP1 and trying to service the offline Win 7 image. Anyway, I'm back to the good ol' WAIK :-) Cheers
  4. Hello everyone, I was just wondering if anybody came across the problem I had today using wintoolkit and ADK 8.1 Preview. I have an x64 VAIO which runs Win7 SP1 x64 Ultimate, a pretty fresh install, nothing except for IE10, office 2013, 7 zip + a few required updates/hotfixes. Today I installed ADK 8.1 Preview which features the new DISM 6.3.9431.0. Installing netframework 4.5 (also a preview) was required to install ADK. I installed WinToolkit and tried to do some customizing on a win7 sp1 x64 ultimate (digital river disc). I mounted install.wim using cmd (by the way, very fast with amd64 dism) and then went on to WinToolkit's component remover. The component remover finds the already mounted image and after pressing "select" it tries to load it. And here's where the problem is: Normally the whole process of getting the list of packages takes 3-4 minutes but here it started with "checking if the wim is mounted" (the message on the bar). This lasted around 20 minutes, meantime it gave me an error ("The exception unknown software exception 0x40000015 occurred in the application at location 0xfe94aa8e"). Some other time the application just didn't respond and crashed and generally during this process of "checking if the wim is mounted" I was unable to even open an explorer window. Anyway, this time after "checking if the wim is mounted" it went on to "getting/unhidding packages", all that stuff. It lasted another 15 minutes and finally got me the list. The list, however, consisted only of few things: themes, remove winsxs, remove upgrade folder, that stuff, no other packages listed. I have no idea why the component remover does "checking if the wim is mounted", and why it all takes so long and then the list is missing all the packages. If I mount the image directly via WinToolkit something like this never happens. Also, when I mount the image with e.g. gImageX and then go to Wintoolkit to process the image, everything is fine. I used to do a lot of mounting directly in Wintoolkit as well as mounting the image with command line and the go to wintoolkit. Never have had such a problem before, though I used WAIK at that time. By the way, when I use the ADK 8.1 dism commandline, it works fine, it's fast. All the get-packages/features, mounting, anything I tried was OK. I don't know which version of dism is being used by Wintoolkit or wether it matters at all. Any idea what the problem may be? is it possible that the new dism is different or mounts the image in a different way? maybe it is the 4.5 framework? Cheers eveafterdark
