    Mounted ISO or extracted ISO, both can be used by W10UI, it will check "sources\sxs" for the needed cab, if the cab is not available on the used source then you can set a specific path to the sxs folder containing the cab, this is what i always do in the main script (i never use the ini file for W10UI):

    Code:
    @setlocal DisableDelayedExpansion
    @set uiv=v10.23
    @echo off
    :: enable debug mode, you must also set target and repo (if updates are not beside the script)
    set _Debug=0
    
    :: when changing below options, recommended to set the new values between = and " marks
    
    :: target distribution, wim file or offline image
    :: leave it blank to update current online os, or automatically detect wim file next to the script
    set "Target=%~dp019045_Work_x64_US"
    
    :: updates location
    :: leave it blank to automatically detect the current script directory
    set "Repo=%~dp019045_Updates_x64"
    
    :: dism.exe tool custom path (if Host OS is Win8.1 or earlier and no Win10 ADK installed)
    set "DismRoot=dism.exe"
    
    :: enable .NET 3.5 feature
    set Net35=1
    
    :: optional, specify custom "folder" path for microsoft-windows-netfx3-ondemand-package.cab
    set "Net35Source=%~dp019041.1_SXS_x64"
    
    :: Cleanup OS images to "compress" superseded components (might take long time to complete)
    set Cleanup=1
    
    :: Rebase OS images to "remove" superseded components (warning: break "Reset this PC" feature)
    :: require first to set Cleanup=1
    set ResetBase=1
    
    :: update winre.wim if detected inside install.wim
    set WinRE=1
    
    :: Force updating winre.wim with Cumulative Update even if SafeOS update detected
    set LCUwinre=0
    
    :: update ISO boot files bootmgr/bootmgr.efi/efisys.bin from Cumulative Update
    set UpdtBootFiles=1
    
    :: 1 = do not install EdgeChromium with Enablement Package or Cumulative Update
    :: 2 = alternative workaround to avoid EdgeChromium with Cumulative Update only
    set SkipEdge=0
    
    :: optional, set directory for temporary extracted files (default is on the same drive as the script)
    set "_CabDir=c:\W10UItemp"
    
    :: optional, set mount directory for updating wim files (default is on the same drive as the script)
    set "MountDir=c:\W10UImount"
    set "WinreMount=c:\W10UImountre"
    
    :: start the process directly once you execute the script, as long as the other options are correctly set
    set AutoStart=0
    
    :: # Options for distribution target only #
    
    :: convert install.wim to install.esd
    :: warning: the process will consume very high amount of CPU and RAM resources
    set wim2esd=0
    
    :: split install.wim into multiple install.swm files
    :: note: if both options are 1, install.esd takes precedence over split install.swm
    set wim2swm=0
    
    :: create new iso file
    :: require Win10 ADK, or place oscdimg.exe or cdimage.exe next to the script, or inside bin folder
    set ISO=1
    
    :: folder path for iso file, leave it blank to create ISO in the script current directory
    set "ISODir="
    
    :: delete DVD distribution folder after creating updated ISO
    set Delete_Source=0
    Code:
    # Supported targets:
    - Current Online OS
    - Offline image (already mounted directory, or another partition)
    - Distribution folder (extracted iso, copied dvd/usb)
    - Distribution Drive (virtual mounted iso, inserted dvd drive, usb drive)
    - WIM file directly (unmounted)

    Hello I downloaded the Windows "Official 19044.1288 (IoT) Enterprise LTSC 2021 MVS Direct ISOs" File.
    I plan on activating it with this Tool "MAS" with HWID option.
    I plan on using this OS for playing Anti-Cheat protected Games since Linux has problems with those.
    Is there anything I should be aware of thanks in advance.

    Not allowed to link at MAS.

    Is not the best choice for gaming.

    From my Research everything but the Store Games should work(?)
    My question was more if I should integrate Updates beforehand?

    There is no problem at all with games. Some games may require the store to install crap, but the store is easily installable in LTSC

    I know this is not the right thread to ask this but since I'm on IoT Enterprise LTSC 2021, I might as well. So W10UI is a fantastic tool and I successfully managed to create a functional, updated iso thanks to it despite being a complete noob. Now my question is: I want to integrate, other than Windows updates, also the drivers for my laptop. Can W10UI do this or is there another tool for this? Would massively appreciate it if you could point me towards the right direction.

    Doesn't matter in what order you do this.

    Thank you, I was able to integrate VMware drivers successfully after using w10ui to generate the updated install.wim :)

    Newbie here, so what's with the drivers?
    I just installed N LSTC 21H2 on my laptop and getting cumulative updates and those stuff. But do I have to manually install drivers? Or windows update feature does it for me?
