    You have a secondary feature enabled which has a functionality to log script-blocks, undoubtedly in Group Policy or elsewhere. Such features will not allow the executable to run because of how it must maintain its own integrity when processing changes to the WIM file per its access to the actual WIM's internal handle that WimGapi uses. This ensures that no secondary background processes can interact with the actual processes and lead to corruption.

    Unlike DISM, etc. if WimGapi is set up to track image integrity, and another process is detected to be acting on the WIM file, it will immediately release the WIM handle to prevent any unnecessary corruption. This is done using WimGapi's Win32 P/Invoke along with a SafeHandle public sealed class.

    The non-executable does not have such checks because it does not use a native method for accessing and converting the WIM file.

    No, homebrews are not allowed. But, the instructions to create the correct ISOs along with how to work with them are available in this thread. :)

    I've been considering running Pro WS on my primary machine (i7-3770) (getting on a bit I know) and think a list of for vs against based on domestic use located at the OP and updated from posted comments would prove useful.

    Although my hardware for example won’t make use of the higher scaling there are the other potential benefits such as ReFS etc. so having this in one place would help when making an informed decision.

    SIngle CPU and normal amount of ram doesn't need to run Pro-WS.

    I figured this to be the case, but it was more about the smaller differences like no preinstalled games vs any drop in overall performance in comparison to pro due to dated hardware.

    The preinstalled games don't use systemresources when not loaded, not noticeable.

    Aren't some power optimizations supposed to be present in Workstation edition? There was some info regarding reduced latencies in drivers or something like that. That is always welcomed by gamers!

    Does anyone know, which editions have gpedit, and can enable bitlocker w/o tpm, pin only? AFAIR it's all except Home but I need to know for 100%. Many thanks in advance!
    Also 2. Which editions can restrict updates to only those super-tested-stable? (I don't remember what they're called) AFAIR it's only in Enterprise but again I need to know for 100%.

    Are you speaking of the Windows Editions or the USER?

    I mean Home, Pro, Workstations, Enterprise. How do they differ in terms of Windows Update and Group Policy control/manipulation without any 3rd party hacks (like Paint3r's Disabler, ShutUp etc.)

    I have no clue. I would never use any of those programs. I want a working OS. I don't do anything with Group Policy either. Just on the rare occaison, and certainly not to interupt Windows' communications.

    All I need is just one group policy - to enable bitlocker without tpm module.

    You can't do much with home.On pro I think you can delay feature update(aka new versions like rs3,rs4 etc) for maximum of 6 months(a year by using some registry tweak).On enterprise you can delay feature update by max 1 year.Enterprise LTSB(now name changed to LTSC) has no feature update available,you have the option of using it till its supported life which is usually 5 years mainstream & 5 years extended support.If you want feature updates on LTSB then you will have to wait few years.e.g.LTSB2015 was released in july 2015,LTSB2016 in aug 2016 & LTSB2018 will be released later this year.
