    Why jump so easy to getting offended?
    The remark about reading comments was strictly about the wizard on uupdump.ml
    Since the generated script gives a reproducible result for everybody, the logical explanation for why it would not do so is that you've misclicked something and end up with a configuration lacking the Pro esd, or maybe running a previously downloaded script with different configuration than the last generated one. Home alone is ~3.25GB, both is ~4.83GB in uup files to download.
    Unless you provide the script package actually used / original link from uupdump.ml that is malfunctioning, we have nothing to work with.
    Who knows, maybe Defender did something to break only the pro indexes, or there were incomplete downloads, or you run out of free space - in any case it's something specific to your machine that wasted your time, and after getting any errors in the script should start again from scratch. And you did blame the script then and now.

    Here's the ini file:
    Code:
    [convert-UUP]
    AutoStart    =1
    AddUpdates   =1
    Cleanup      =0
    ResetBase    =0
    NetFx3       =0
    StartVirtual =1
    wim2esd      =0
    SkipISO      =0
    SkipWinRE    =0
    ForceDism    =0
    RefESD       =0
    
    [create_virtual_editions]
    vAutoStart   =1
    vDeleteSource=0
    vPreserve    =0
    vwim2esd     =0
    vSkipISO     =0
    vAutoEditions=CoreSingleLanguage,ProfessionalWorkstation,ProfessionalEducation,Education,Enterprise,ServerRdsh,IoTEnterprise,ProfessionalWorkstationN,ProfessionalEducationN,EducationN,EnterpriseN
    
    I'm still waiting for how will I get the info you asked. "the progress info of the conversion plus updates integration", in which file they are?

    Just select the content of the cmd window in which the conversion runs and paste it here, in code tags.

    Well, it's already gone. It's unfortunate that the tool doesn't save the progress into a log file then. So, we have nothing to work with now?

    Simply running this in an elevated cmd should help with the unmounting errors:
    Code:
    dism /cleanup-wim
    I agree with @BAU all seems a bit sloppy.

    About the log, just never close a cmd window without checking it first for errors and/or copy/pasting the content to a txt file.

    You are hilarious... You not only misunderstand but also confuse things together. Do NOT make things up and comment based on your biased opinions. Your arrogant attitude does not helping anyone. I won't let you to make me look like an "ignorant newbie" who came here for discredit the work of great people who do phenomenal work.

    Let's try one more time. This time I'll try to explain it as simple as it can get, at the elementary school level, obviously we need such level now. :)

    5.000.001th time :)

    There are 2 laptops.

    Laptop 1: An old Celeron with 4 gig of ram, running Win10.
    The script downloaded and ran FOR THE FIRST TIME in this machine. The ini file that I shared belong to this computer's script which has ALL EDITIONS AND ALL ADDITIONAL EDITIONS. It took ages to complete, threw errors and pages of access is denied errors as well. The script RAN FOR THE FIRST TIME and resulted errors.

    Laptop 2: An old i5 with 8 gig of ram. Formatted and installed Windows 10 Home with the ISO file created with Laptop 1. The script downloaded and ran FOR THE FIRST TIME in this machine too. It took slightly shorter than Laptop 1 but script threw the same errors and access is denied errors too. Config was almost the same, I just didn't select the .Net Framework.

    In the meantime I was talking with @Enthousiast about it and then you started to interfere in with a great arrogance and mess things up. You even confused @Enthousiast as far as I see his last comment which agrees you?! @Enthousiast, don't agree with him, he basically doesn't know what he is talking about.

    While I was talking with @Enthousiast, he told me the progress info is only in the cmd window and isn't saved to any file. So, I decided to download A NEW SCRIPT with a DIFFERENT CONFIG, this time I only selected PRO and deselected N editions from ADDITIONAL EDITIONS and started the script in the Laptop 2. I kept updating/editing my last post as the progress goes. THE NEW SCRIPT ran in a different folder, it's not I was adding or changing configs in the same folder and keep starting it over and over!

    I knew you are going to jump on it when I say "I'm running the script with a different config, only selected Pro this time.". As we can see it's not even close to what you understand, is it? It's a great pleasure to prove you wrong btw :)
    Now a lecture about how "technical forums" are? LOL. As it can be seen:
    I
    - did NOT do anything wrong
    - misrepresent the situation
    - don't have a problem on my end

    Let me tell you what is getting hysterical over, being dishonest, being disrespectful and being lame. It is YOU and YOUR ATTITUDE without understanding what is going on and start flagging someone as "ignorant newbie", confusing things together, making things up and talking nonsense about them all.

    Don't try to cover your arrogance by making Enthousiast look like an ubermensch, or a Saint etc. He's just a normal guy who likes helping people with no arrogance.

    So, don't be such guy, try to be like a normal guy, like Enthousiast for instance. If you can't, stay out of it. You might be good at scripts and coding but helping or guiding other people requires other skills which apparently you don't have.

    @Enthousiast, since I clarified the things which were messed up by someone, let's continue debugging it. From the previous post I posted the errors script threw. There are errors and error codes. All 2 scripts ran for the first time on different machines and yet gave the same errors. By looking at the data I provided in the previous post, can that ISO be used? If so. any risk of using that ISO to install windows? What might be causing the same errors? What do you think?

    But i always thought i was...:rolleyes:

    The ISO from the progress you show is not usable, the access denied messages comes either from running it in a too long filepath (always keep the path short and simple), a space in the path, AV, an opened explorer window or an earlier attempt that was not cleaned up well, considering the message the mount folder is not empty.

    Check for leftover mount folders still containing files from a previous attempt, if there still are any left, run this in an elevated cmd:
    Code:
    DISM /Cleanup-WIM
    now delete the mount folder and re-run the windows download script and don't close the cmd before you copy/paste the content.

    every time I start downloading via a new UUP Dump script, I get these errors.

    Code:
    ...

    [==========================100.0%==========================]

    The directory could not be completely unmounted.  This is usually due to applications that still have files opened within the mount directory.  Close these files and unmount again to complete the unmount process.

    The specified mounted image cannot be committed back into the WIM.  This occurs when an image has been through a partial unmount or when an image is still being mounted.

    When finished, I type "0" to finish.

    I do the cleaning by unmounting the mounting points, through NTlite.

    I delete the created ISO and start the procedure again and everything is going well. Create the new ISO without errors and finish. Everything is OK.

    @abbodi1406,
    Would it be necessary to have a command to force a cleaning of mount points before starting the creation of virtual indexes?

    @RaiyvaN

    That's either because of an overactive AV or some explorer window opened during the process.

    When a project went wrong try this:
    Code:
    DISM /Cleanup-WIM

    I always make sure that I do not touch the folders assembled during the process. Especially after seeing, a few months ago (when I started to do the tests and learn more about the use of the scripts), that this happened when I tried to change something within the points assembled during the execution of the MSMG Toolkit or Win 7 Tool for SiMPLiX .

    So... Even if I'm not in the folders the script uses? Just using windows explorer for other activities? Does not make sense.
    Thank you, I know about that command. But through NTLite, a box informs you that there is an error of mount conflicts of "WinRe.wim" inside the "temp" folder with the mount of the "install.wim" image inside the "ISOFolder".
    I think there is something extra there.

    Any open Explorer window can block DISM, although I made the experience that only the open Folders on the same drive seem to do.

    About open folders: this is strange. It is a fact that the first time it does not work. Then I repeat the procedure and everything goes well. The first time, some compilation is performed. The second time, as such a compilation has already been done, you should go to the next step, the Script has several checks of this type to avoid repeating tasks.

    @Enthousiast ,
    I'm putting the
    "DISM /Cleanup-WIM" = "%_dism1% /Cleanup-Wim %_Nul3%" command in the convert-UUP.cmd session that calls create_virtual_editions.cmd to test.

    Code:
    if %StartVirtual% neq 0 (
      if %RefESD% neq 0 call :uups_backup
      ren ISOFOLDER %DVDISO%
      rem set _rtrn=BakISO&goto :errmount
      %_dism1% /Cleanup-Wim %_Nul3%
      if %AutoStart% neq 0 (goto :V_Auto) else (goto :V_Manu)
    )
    
    Remembering that when running "uup_download_windows.cmd" the above files are overwritten. Then, after accepting the elevation of rights, I replace it with the versions I changed (remember that I commented that I had made changes to change the order of the indexes? That was successful).

    Base INDEXES
    Core
    Professional

    Virtual INDEXES
    ProfessionalWorkstation
    ProfessionalWorkstationN
    ProfessionalEducation
    ProfessionalEducationN
    Education
    EducationN
    Enterprise
    EnterpriseN
    ServerRdsh
    IoTEnterprise
    IoTEnterpriseS
    CoreSingleLanguage

    Note: this problem also happens with the untouched script. Just to make it clear that I already checked if it could be any changes I had made.

    Two unrelated options:

    - Cleanup compresses superseded components

    In the convertconfig.ini you also can set this line:
    Code:
    ResetBase    =1
    This completely removes superseded components

    - Selecting Enterprise as additional edition will create a Pro + Enterprise ISO, to have an Enterprise only ISO you have to edit this line in the convertconfig.ini
    Code:
    vDeleteSource=1
    Now it will create the Enterprise SKU and deletes the Pro SKU.

    On the uupdump website, I'm seeing the use of four ring definitions (Insider Fast, Insider Slow, Release Preview, and Retail). What is "Retail" in this context? My understanding is that there are only three definitions.

    Public non Insider Preview.

    And FAST is now beta ring, test channel after sign of.
