    The log from this post is for en-GB altered/edited project - returns no errors
    @zbigniew59's edit 'Optimize-Online / Optimize-Offline.psd1 / line 21 - en-US - to your language' is not needed, as it points to a help file
    and changing it basically renders it useless, as it then points to something (a link) that does not exist.

    Can you add Whitelist to ALL of the below? I tried by copying and pasting some of your code, no go. :(

    Code:
    WindowsApps": "WhiteList",
      "SystemApps": "WhiteList",
      "Capabilities": "WhiteList",
      "Packages": true,
      "Features": true,

    Just the afforementioned 3 instances
    Code:
    (Optimize-Offline Root Directory) Changed the en-US folder to en-GB,
    (Optimize-OfflineRoot Directory\Src\Public\) Changed the en-US folder to en-GB,
    (Optimize-Offline.psd1) Changed en-US reference to en-GB
    

    Ran into the same isssue previously, turned out to be a Powershell version problem


    Ran a more complete test, earlier - ran into some driver issues - but all else completed ok

    Just a question, I un commented maximum in the .psm & added this to my config.json
    "CompressionType": "Maximum"
    }
    file though OO refused to start, missing something else perhaps?

    With @gdeliana 's OO fork, you set the compression type to: 'Select', 'None', 'Fast', 'Maximum', 'Solid' in the "Configuration.json" only. Editing the .psm is no longer necessary.
    The setting is the last entry in the latest Configuration.json
    Code:
    ...
    ...
         "NetFx3": false
      },
      "ComponentCleanup": true,
      "ISO": "No-Prompt",
      "CompressionType": "Maximum" (choices: Select, None, Fast, Maximum, Solid)

    Is there any way that parameters can be extended to include 'FeaturesEnabled' (enabling Disabled features) and 'FeaturesDisabled' (disabling Enabled features)
    - as a rule most users would already know what they intend to Enable or Disable

    Windows explorer ribbon added back 11 Improvements, fixes and modifications [Overview]
    Is this automatically skipped when editing eg - 19043?
    Need to edit something?

    Is this script UNIVERSAL ?
