    The Problem was not with the ToolKit Code But it was with the Compiler Used to Convert Batch to EXE, It's Pointing to Windows Temporary Directory Instead of Current Working Directory

    The Link Will be Updated Soon with the Fix.

    Updated the Link with Bug Fixed.

    Note: I haven't put any check for whether source files do exists or not in these folders - DVD, ISO, Packs\PreAct, Updates\GA\x86 or x64, Updates\HotFixes\x86 or x64, so don't use the program options without the respective source files.

    I've tried and integrate GA roll up x64. at w8.1 Pro, it went well.
    But I think the ISO file was very big, it increased by 513 MB.
    But I am satisfied with the program, thanks:biggrin:

    The GA Rollup x64 is around 230MC Compressed without the Flash Player (Windows8.1-KB2898108-x64) Update (10MB), When Expanded it will increased, So gradually the install.wim size will increase and so does the ISO Size too...

    I have disabled in the ToolKit not to integrate the Flash Player (Windows8.1-KB2898108-x64) Update, coz it gets updates very often so..

    But, If you want to reduce the size of ISO file, then you can remove all files/folders from DVD Root except

    boot
    efi
    sources

    |
    |-------------> boot.wim
    |-------------> EI.cfg (Ony If you have WMC Add-on Integrated or AIO)
    |-------------> install.wim
    |-------------> lang.ini (Only if you integrated any language packs).
    |-------------> setup.exe
    bootmgr
    bootmgr.efi



    Even you delete the SxS folder from sources folder if you have Integrated .Net Framework 3.5 Feature.

    very nice work, simple and straight forward. There isn't that many things the average user needs to do to a wim that you aren't already doing, but some extra servicing options you could include easily imo :

    -default app associations remove and add. Dism /image:' & $Mount & " /Remove-DefaultAppAssociations" and Dism /image:' & $Mount & " /Import-DefaultAppAssociations:AppAssoc.xml
    -add overlay for system32 files, custom winre, or spp activation files.
    -drivers. Dism /image:' & $Mount & ' /Add-Driver /Driver:"' & $DRIVERS & '\Windows 7 ' & $EditionArch & '" /Recurse'
    -rename index with date(after patches). $imagex & " /info " & $SourceUpdatesWim & " " & $Index & ' "' & $IndexDescription & '" "' & $IndexDescription & '"'
    -get packages. Dism /Image:" & $Mount & " /Get-Packages>packages.txt
    -offline regedit. "reg load HKLM\Offline " & $Mount & "\windows\system32\config\software" and "reg unload HKLM\Offline"

    Great work,but one Question: why don't your Toolkit integrate GA-Updates in the win.re and boot.wim? Your first Toolkit does.

    Forgett it, my mistake!!!!!!!!!! :pissy:

    Thanks, well am working on other features to add like

    - Remove Default Metro Apps
    - Remove Default Metro Apps Associations
    - Export Default Metro Apps Associations
    - Integrate Updates/HotFixes
    - Import Registry Tweaks

    Adding Spp Activation files, it's already done, you can use the feature - [4] Integrate Pre-Activation Details for Auto-Activation from MSMG ToolKit. Just copy the "data.dat", "tokens.dat", and "cache.dat" (Optional) from your Activated OS \Windows\System32\spp folder to MSMG\Packs\PreAct

    When Asked for Product Key, copy the CDKey with the '-' dashes and paste it in the MSMG ToolKit Window when the Product Key is asked.


    Will Add other Features you had list.

    Well it does integrate GA-Updates in the winre.wim and boot.wim wim images, check out the logs folder in the msmg folder, it will contain netfx35.txt, bootwim-1.txt, bootwim-2.txt, install.txt, winre.txt files.


    Note: These Log Files will be deleted a soon as you close the MSMG ToolKit.

    The MSMG ToolKit is mainly designed for :

    - Windows 8.1 Core/CSLA/CCSL/Pro/ProWMC/Enterprise/Embeddded/RT
    - Windows Server 2012 R2

    The MSMG ToolKit does supports for Windows 8/Server 2012 and supports these operations:

    - Integrate .Net Framework 3.5 Components
    - Integrate Custom Patches
    - Make a ISO Image
    - Burn a ISO Image

    Since Windows 8.0 is replaced by Windows 8.1 so I haven't added support for other operations like WMC Add-on, Pre-Activation.
