    Still doing the same thing, deleting ALL the apps, whitelist not working. I don't think your push worked. :(

    Nope that was not for your issue, but for the executionpolicy issue, your issue is different, as i mentioned in my post earlier to you, your list naming convention is outdated. Check the master and copy all the /Content/Lists folder and overwrite anything. The whitelist for windows apps is in: /Content/Lists/WindowsAppsList.json

    I did all the lists using WhiteAppList and all the other lists. GUI won't even open with configuration.json as below.

    Code:
    {
        "_Info":  [
                      "This is a JSON based Configuration file for Optimize-Offline.",
                      "Ensure proper formatting is used when editing the JSON parameter values.",
                      "Boolean parameter values use true and false. String parameter values must be enclosed in double-quotes.",
                      "WindowsApps, SystemApps, Capabilities, Packages : All | None | Select | Whitelist | Blacklist",
                      "FeaturesToEnable, FeaturesToDisable : All | None | Select | List",

    Man sorry, but i cannot reproduce your errors, i think you should start with a new folder, and copy there the entire master branch and copy and paste the list items into their proper json lists by hand manually.

    Would like to ask anyone here: Wouldn't it be better the Legacy USB flashing to initialize the USB in MBR rather than GPT scheme? I had last week a notebook from 2010, and even the legacy option failed to boot in that bios. But when i did the usb with Rufus with MBR it booted perfectly. So i think legacy should have MBR rather than GPT.

    Yes, Legacy should be MBR.

    Is there any error popping out in the console? You can run the gui with this command from powershell when you are in the root folder of OO tool:

    Code:
    .\Src\GUI\Start.ps1
    Like this you will see the errors.

    Execution Policy is done for good this time, in all bat launchers & GUI. No more manually setting globally execution policy, as it can be a threat to the whole system. Bypass mode is being used only for the OO tool, anything else apart that has the global execution policy setting.

    Am looking forward for feedback regarding USB booting on old bios-es. I thought it would fix making legacy to MBR, but we already have that like that, so there must be something else, which i will try to identify.

    @KedarWolf Will try with spaces in the directory name and let you know my findings. Thanks
    @RisenRayzen Have fixed the BootWim image index when no recovery image is present in boot.wim. Whenever you can give it a try in latest master. Thanks

    Hello mate :)

    Yes you right, long time no release, i will finish with the bug of spaces in the OO directory name, and today/tomorrow comes the release. Just trying to make as much as possible a bugless release :)

    Despite that, you can download the master branch as a zip file in github. Releases are just tags after all of the branch.

    So trying to use your latest master branch and it will (unlike latest release) get to the end where it's saving the image but then it freezes and shows as "suspended" in task manager with no disk activity or CPU. I've seen this with system apps and services but never with a foreground program. Ideas?
