    Bug report here. KB4524244 won't integrate and caused the update process to abort and the image to unmount. This was fixed by @abbodi1406 in W10UI v8.0. Any chance the fix can be implemented in the UUP conversion script?

    Would it be possible to make it so we can exclude N editions on the editions selection page? Basically, can it be changed to allow for multiple selections or maybe a new option added for only "Home+Pro"?

    I don't use N versions personally and few of my customers are even aware that they exist and the ones that do and ask about them, I tell them what's what and what to expect and that is normally enough to dissuade them from having me install them.

    As it is now, if I create all editions, after the script is done, I preempt the convert_virtual script then export all of the non-n editions to a new install.wim and use that as the base for the virtual editions. Is it possible to delete the N related ESD's from the UUP directory prior to the conversion process or will that break the script?

    Neither do I! Do not choose all editions.

    Choose the third download option, Download using aria2 option: "download, convert, and create additional editions" then remove the check marks from the n versions. That's it.

    I know how to use the site. The way it is currently setup, you can only select one edition or all editions. I want Home and I want Pro. I do not want either of the N editions. Your method (assuming you meant to add select the Pro or Home editions) would result in only the Pro or Home edition which wouldn't show any N versions in the virtual editions selection section. The only way to get both Home and Pro is to select All Editions and even if I unchecked all of the N versions would still result in Home N and Professional N editions being included.

    Doing some experimenting here, I removed all of the N ESD's from the UUPs directory then ran Convert-UUP.cmd and it detected only 2 images instead of 4 and seems to have compiled an install.wim containing only Home and Professional indecies. So far so good. Still it would be better if I didn't have to download the N related ESD files in the first place.

    I downloaded the create virtual script for 18363.657 and the convert-uup script says v42.

    ***EDIT***

    Redownloaded it and got the new script. Running it now. Thanks for the tip. :)

    Currently no, because it requires a rewrite of many things to get working properly.

    Very nice! I'm surprised that nobody suggested that before me as it's a very useful feature imho. Thank you, Sir Scripting God!

    I planned to add this since long time (UUP dump API supported this since v1.22.0), but had no idea how to implement it without rewriting half of the website and breaking existing links to it. Yesterday I finally got an idea which does not break anything, so I implemented it.

    Can the Windows 10 "Pro Single Language" SKU also be added to the UUP dump?

    Why do you think it's usable or worth adding?

    AFAIK, it cannot be activated, it only has one license and one key

    UUP dump has also included the Windows 10 "Home Single Language" so including the Pro would be the logical thing. And i think their is also a Windows 10 "IoT Core" and "IoT Core Pro" SKU available, but not sure about it. o_O

    "Home Single Language"/"CoreSingleLanguage" is an official SKU, with a complete license set. It can be activated and used, and it is targeted by updates.

    "ProfessionalSingleLanguage", "ProfessionalCountrySpecific" and "IoTEnterpriseS" SKUs don't have any license sets, just a placeholder key. They are unable to be activated in any way as they only possess one placeholder key, each. Plus, they will likely not be targeted by any updates. There are more without even a name.
