Manually removing components?


Recommended Posts

As far as I understand Win Toolkit uses dism to remove components.


An original German Win 7 Enterprise DVD has 4 integrated language packs (as shown in the component remover part of Win Toolkit):


French -> Package_for_KB976933~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~fr-FR~6.1.7601.17514

German -> Package_for_KB976933~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~de-DE~6.1.7601.17514

Japanese -> Package_for_KB976933~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~ja-JP~6.1.7601.17514

Spanish-> Package_for_KB976933~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~es-ES~6.1.7601.17514


Let's say I want to remove all the Japanese language stuff.


If I search for *ja-jp* in the folder where I mounted the install.wim I get dozens of entries for directories and files.


But there is no .cab file in there that I could use for a command like:

Dism /Image:D:\<mounted install.wim folder> /Remove-Package /PackagePath:D:\<mounted install.wim folder>\...\<xxx.cab>


So how do I remove all the japanese language stuff (not via Win Toolkit) but on a cmd with admin rights?


Thanks for any answers!

You use /PackageName not /PackagePath

Dism /Image:D:\<mounted install.wim folder> /Remove-Package /PackageName:Package_for_KB976933~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~ja-JP~6.1.7601.17514
Some ja-JP folders are added by some updates/hotfixes (like virtual pc and others,) you cannot remove them unless you remove all the updates that added them or you can manually remove them
