    Hello,
    I made a test with "games" integration in a french Windows 10 version. All went fine, thanks !
    But I noticed that "3D Pinball - Space Cadet" x64 game is not in french, but in english; help file from .tpk archive is effectivelly in french, but not table.bmp and pinball.exe.
    All files are in french in the x86 version. All other x64 and x86 games of the pack are in french.
    It's easy to replace table.bmp with the one from x86 archive and patch x64 pinball.exe with resources files from x86 version, here are the correct files that need to be placed in "9" folder of "Games_x64_fr-FR.tpk" archive (I don't know how to edit this format, it's read-only with 7zip).

    Some vista games aren't working for Windows 11, will fix this issue too when fixing them.

    This detail of the WebDriver has been tempted, but has no relation to the article on the key that is missing when Edge Chromium is removed.
    Maybe the article helps you solve this problem.

    Note: "Microsoft Edge Update" is appearing again. But it is not being executed. I still did not realize that. It seems to me blocked for now. But it is interesting too, upgrade so that this can be removed.

    WebDriver is required for Developer Mode pack to work.

    The registry key specified in that article might be helpful as deleting it allows your to use both the browser side by side

    No, the article says that if you delete this, it will disrupt the Side-by-side operation.
    "Important This key is over-written every time the Microsoft Edge Stable channel is updated. As a best practice, we recommend that you don’t delete this key to allow users to access both versions of Microsoft Edge."

    I think that the Edge Chromium is deleted and this key is removed, causes the problem of Edge Legacy to stop working.

    Right but when the Edge Chromium is removed need to see if the Key is required.

    I been away for few years. So would like to know. We can't still update windows becauseit will reinstall removed stuff.??? If it is it means it will never be able to removed stuff and update windows..
    My other question is..
    W11. Is it faster than w10.? In games in operations overall.?
    Last question what if you meet the requirements but not CPU.? What would happen if you decide to use w11.?

    @MSMG
    Is there a list/wiki/doc anywhere of what the removable components are/their removal consequences?
    Most of them are verbose enough to be intuitive, but a few I've no idea and googling seems to not help.

    AsyncTextService - ??
    CapturePicker - part of the snipping feature?
    CallingShellApp - call app? does removal affect voip calls like through teams?
    SecureAssessmentBrowser - something to take virtual tests or something?
    SkypeORTC - since skype is dead, is this just left over for skype itself, or framework/lib for all calls? again, would teams calls be affected?

    Am trying to comment out RemovePkgsList like:
    Code:
    #camera barcode scanner preview?
    CBSPreview
    
    #eye control app?
    ECApp
    
    #Your Phone app?
    CommunicationsApps
    so future me doesn't have to re-search what some of them are.
    Thanks!

    And btw - is the correct order to remove components - get newest feature build from uupdump, "update" it via msmg and begin? Or are those LCU meant for premiere releases, contain everything in one pack?

    - It must depend of the update, but I've never seen an application update, it's more about security.
    - Not for the moment but the difference is really minimal.
    - You won't get the updates without doing anything.

    22000.xxx updates don't check for the minimum requirements, so once 22000.xxx is installed by a fixed ISO on unsupported hardware the updates will be offered without the need to do anything.

    What MSFT meant with "no updates on unsupported hardware" was about the feature updates aka upgrades to new major releases.
