    Thanks for the suggestion to add back (the crummy) File Explorer.

    Will test while I wait for the next release.

    Well, it's mostly the x86 multilang support that I was waiting for. For x64 we can use GodHand's powershell script.
    If MSMG x86 works 100%, I can make a lot of people very happy.

    Cheers MSMG and thank you for your work.

    I know it has been asked a lot of times already, but I didn't find any good answer.
    What is the difference: taking the latest available build VS. taking non-refreshed image (build No. 1) and applying the latest cumulative update to it?
    Also, is non-refreshed image safe to install or should I go with build 107? And does the toolkit fully support it?
    Thanks.

    Glad to see the developer back and hope is feeling a lot better and life is going well...

    Anyone ever tried to use the repair option to load a newly chopped image over the top of an image previously chapped?

    I'm trying to add the old photo viewer and Microsoft Store to my machine but I'd hate to totally reimage just for those so I was wondering if I can do a repair and have it just update to the newly chopped image???

    The toolkit does support refreshed image 107.
    But the best would be integrating in a base image, the first released image. That's how I do it.

    Repair option will work, it's a new install anyway and old configs will be imported during the process.
    BTW, for the old photo viewer there are reg entries you can use, for store there is an installer by abbodi.

    Cheers.

    The photo viewer files are missing so the reg tweak doesn't work. This tool did a thorough job or removing photo viewer.

    Is the installer here? Any idea what the installer by abbodi is called? Nevermind, found it.

    For a moment, I thought you were giving up on RS5 and planning your return for 1903

    DONT LEAVE US OUR HERO :p

    Honestly MSMG, you have nothing at all to apologise for. If anything, I feel some users should apologise to you for what is almost bordering on harassing you for an update - these users should realise that your work doesn't cost us anything, however it does cost a lot of your time.

    UPDATE:

    So I added back:

    ============================================================
    MSMG ToolKit - Remove System Apps Menu
    ============================================================

    [E] FileExplorer - File Explorer App
    [F] LockApp - Lockscreen App
    [O] SettingSync - Setting Sync

    The result is a bigger ISO with the same issues :(

    U need 17763.1 iso bro. I can only clean sources with this iso.
    You can use SVF2ISO tool to get it.

    I've never done an update to my image but my understanding is that updates may add back some of the features and apps your worked so hard to remove. This is why you want to start and strip down the latest build.

    Afaik, MSMG Toolkit only works properly on the baseline build (no updates integrated).

    But i have seen a post from MSMG, it should work on refresh iso's, but that wasn't so in the past.

    I can't get group policy editor to work using a bat file that runs the below. Anyone knows what I might have removed to break this?

    Code:
    @echo off
    pushd "%~dp0"
    
    dir /b %SystemRoot%\servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy-ClientExtensions-Package~3*.mum >List.txt
    dir /b %SystemRoot%\servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy-ClientTools-Package~3*.mum >>List.txt
    
    for /f %%i in ('findstr /i . List.txt 2^>nul') do dism /online /norestart /add-package:"%SystemRoot%\servicing\Packages\%%i"
    pause
    

    This is the error I get...

    The next question is how do you do a repair without loosing all your stuff? The way I do it is by selecting the setup.exe file and doing an in-place upgrade but there is no setup.exe file in this image???

    My MSMG was working a couple days ago. I recently started using it again for another ISO, but I re-did the unzipping process and loaded up MSMG, I got this error after trying to load the ISO from DVD folder. Can anyone help?

    The output is the wim file. Then you can just replace the install.wim in the .iso with the one you just made with MSMG toolkit.
    The iso will have the setup files you need to complete the process.
    You will want to make a copy of the original .iso, but you probably figured that out already.

    Cheers.
