    NOTE: The modified script is updated and maintained here
    https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/windows-10-enterprise-ltsc-2019.76325/page-12#post-1464527


    It is a direct match to the original except for bits I removed since they are not applicable to LTSB 2016 and the changes needed to allow the script to run with the 14393 build.
    All the required changes are documented and easily seen by searching the script for "LTSB"
    [EDIT]
    Some advice (I hope it's clear)
    My extracted WIM is in "D:\Images\LTSB"
    I put the extracted NetFx3 file "microsoft-windows-netfx3-ondemand-package.cab" in "D:\OS Install Pack\NetFx3"

    Run the script directly in an elevated PowerShell prompt

    PowerShell script with suggested parameters
    Code:
    .\Optimize-Offline-3113-LTS.ps1 -ImagePath "D:\Images\LTSB\install.wim" -Build 14393 -SystemApps -Registry "Hardened" -NetFx3 "D:\OS Install Pack\NetFx3"
    When the first System Applications grid pops-up, I only remove six (6) items:
    Microsoft.ADD.BrokerPlugin
    Microsoft.BioEnrollment
    Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager
    Microsoft.Windows.Cortana
    Microsoft.Windows.ParentalControls
    Microsoft.XboxGameCallableUI

    That's it!

    I always laugh at "debloat" scripts that are themselves some of the most bloated scripts in existence. No logic, no structure, blindly repeating stuff, user friendliness towards zero.

    I totally agree.
    Some of the "debloat" scripts you find on this site are poorly documented and so convoluted in their code construction that one becomes suspicious of the developers intent.
    ...Before someone misinterprets what I'm saying ... there are code developers here on MDL that produce the most amazing and useful script/tools imaginable. I'm only referring to the crappy debloat scripts on here...
    That's why I prefer to use the ones you find on GitHub where there is some standard for documentation and code construction. For instance, I'm not in the least bit a PowerShell expert, but the Optimize-Offline script/tool I've been posting about is so easy to understand that even I could quickly edit it to make it work with build 14393 LTSB 2016.

    I can't help you there.
    All I know is Optimize-Offline makes a custom 'light' image using the official ISO (removes Defender, telemetry, biometric and interactive components).
    It does it in a manner that will always allow updates. It does it without breaking the OS. I'm not going to defend it's integrity, but I'm sure if the developer will show up here at some point and will 'help' you to see the errors of your 'opinion'.

    IE is needed for some obscure Enterprise stuff. Since LTSB is specifically meant for Enterprise and backwards compatibility...

    sorry dude, but I disagree because I have used LTSB modified without IE and never had issues until now

    Or would you have me run my enthusiasm by you first...???:D

    It was easy until Mozilla switched off their FTP servers. Back in the times, I had systems where IE was so old, it literally was unable to browse Mozilla's HTTP(S) server to download Fx...

    I thought LTSB didn't contain cortana and xbox stuff, why does it have to be removed with this tool?
    There are just traces left in LTSB but they are unusable?
    What effect does removing them do?

    I'm actually surprised that GodHand did not share his script on MDL, being a member on this board.
    He did criticize MSMG toolkit on several occasions but when asked to provide alternatives, he did not do so.

    Cheers.

    Cortana is just a name for regular Windows Search in the case of LTSB - it doesn't have actual Cortana, so if you remove it the Windows Search will be broken. The Xbox thing is just Game DVR overlay for recording videos in 3D applications, not the Xbox app that you know from regular Windows 10 editions, however you can easily disable that permanently with a few tweaks.

    He created a topic for testers but so far has not released more information. I was very interested.

    Ok thank you. Would the LTSB/C updates ever add those things back in? Or we can't be sure?

    for now this never happened and i doubt it will happen in the future.
    we won't get feature updates in the first place, so all updates we get won't add any new features. only bugfixes and security updates.
