    At BC2 stage for MRP a slight delay for release as there was a glitch in the remove App's timing part, hopefully sorted that now for all languages.

    Plus tried to speed up App removals and caused a longer delay :oops: - fixed that now.

    Take about 3mins give or take for a SSD and fast CPU for ALL possible Apps and the Special ones. :)

    7 mins not that bad for the app removals on a hdd:)

    I know it not 100% accurate in timing but it not too far off.

    I tried many different choices of apps to be removed and a fully selected app list takes about 3 mins on a mSata drive, celeron cpu and 4gb ram.

    Longest time was about 18 mins but that was a really old desktop and the hdd was a 5200 rpm thing.

    Hmm something not right then :D

    Just installing on a dell inspiron 15, although it got a intel silver cpu @ 1.15ghz and 1tb hdd, will see how long that takes.

    MRP 133 is at BC4 stage, a small delay as it seems the Xbox stuff is being a bit stubborn on the latest insider build to remove, well i think it has removed some of it, however it leaves a tile in the start menu which when clicked will just download the latest version from the store...

    It seems m$ are being a bit more sneaky b----'s and the Xbox apps are now also part of a appx called 'GamingServices'. :g:

    For all current builds ie the 'RTM' ones 19hx,20hx the Xbox apps do get removed. Only one small part which has to be kept is the 'Xbox..CallingUI' file otherwise it can do some very odd things in the OS if that is removed totally.

    Testing continues and i have added in new code to cover this new 'GamingServices' appx -- which seems to so far remove the latest Xbox app stuff.

    If you install the latest Xbox App from the Store and use the usual PowerShell remove appx lines for Xbox it does not remove it at all!! But use those along with the 'GamingServices' appx package name and it vanishes cleanly.....

    * Edit I was correct that the 'GamingServices' appx has control over the XBox app removal too. *

    Looks like i have managed to nail another possible sneaky appx change for now. :D

    I wonder what others are awaiting to be shovelled, i mean silently added, in the next OS ? :g:

    The new code added will be skipped automatically if that new appx does not exist in the OS's image, but if it has been added to a later CU that you integrate into the install image then it should be removed if you have selected to remove Xbox option.

    All being well I will have this MRP v133 released by Wednesday, as need to tidy test code up etc and juggle my work commitments.

    The QT v112 is almost ready too. :)

    Do you by any chance know which MRPConfig setting that disables weather info on lock screen? :p
    Is it because all safe apps are removed or is a telemetry setting? (I know it works without mrpconfig.ini, but not setting PreventTelemetry=No)

    There is only one i know that stops all lockscreen notifications:

    Code:
    
    REG add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Notifications\Settings" /v "NOC_GLOBAL_SETTING_ALLOW_TOASTS_ABOVE_LOCK" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f >nul 2>&1
    
    
    Or reg file:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Notifications\Settings]
    "NOC_GLOBAL_SETTING_ALLOW_TOASTS_ABOVE_LOCK"=dword:00000000
    
    
    Using the 'Disable Lock Screen Notifications' option set as Yes will set the above registry entry:

    Code:
    
    :DisableLSNotifications=Yes

    MRP v133 has now become baseline! :)

    Took a while as a few little glitches was happening which now seems to have been ironed out, plus the new info about the XBox Apps(s) removal side.

    I will have to release it tomorrow morning, (GMT), all being well as i need to catch some sleep and out at work later...
