Hi, I only update my image offline. With a CU every month, it's a hassle to audit, sysprep and capture the image. It would be quite easy if I can just mount the image, integrate the updates, cleanup the component store and be done with it. The problem is whenever I try to cleanup the component store after integrating monthly rollups, it complains about pending.xml in WinSxS and skips. System requires a restart. So, does anyone know a workaround ? any scripts, utilities that could do this ? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading.
