I've researched the subject and have found almost all info needed to construct a batch command pipeline except how to get all keys from .reg file (or from command line) to get properly inserted into mounted subkey.
I did found info about method involving running reg/regedit under desired user account, but i doubt it would work for user accounts inside wim and i also need to target key "HKU/.DEFAULT". I didn't test this.
I have succeeded importing a hand-crafted .reg file into mounted subkey, but this would require me to manually alter all keys in .reg file so they get under required locations.
If there is no other solution, i will try to put something together to partially automate this task.
Hi, I am unable to remove C:\WinToolkit_Mount\ folder. It takes a lot space on my c: drive about 9 gigabytes.
It says i dont have permission, even thought I am using admistration account(windows 7 x64).
I tried bootable linux (puppy linux) from usb and it says "operation not supported or something" when I try to delete the folder.
Any help appreciated.
Dism for Windows 7 offers no function to remove components like in Windows 8 or at least I didn't find it.
Example for Dism in Windows 8
DISM.exe /Online /Disable-Feature /Featurename:Solitaire /Remove
However in Windows 7 you can remove single components via Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows Features on or off.
This starts OptionalFeatures.exe, but I couldn't find any arguments for this exe. With WinToolkit you can for example only remove the whole game group, but not single games.
Is there a way to remove components via a command?
Hi guys, I've a question about the hotfix and other components WinSXS directory in Windows 7, from what I've read by clearing the folder with vLite or WinReducer or other softwares, Windows Update will not work.
But is it possible to fake Windows Update in thinking that WinSXS is fine even if I clear up all the files inside the various directories(directories are fine cause they don't occupy space, but .dll and .exe do).
Can someone clear this thing ?
Suppose you want to install future updates and hotfixes but you don't want to unistall any of the previous, are those files inside WinSXS required.
How does Windows Update check if those files are present, will check updates by the directory list or it will investigate the files inside them too ?
Thanks, for any suggestion to free up those 5 GB safely without breaking Windows Update functionality.
