    Depends on the process status.

    Complete Store ESD:
    Download: C:\Windows\Software Distribution\Downloads to a subfolder with alphanumerical name.

    Then it's decrypted and unpacked to: $Windows~BT

    install.esd only
    Post Upgrade: C:\RecoveryImage

    Strange after installing the last build (upgrade after download from "check previews buid") the recovery image folder contains the original esd file from first preview :confused:

    Oops, i had edited out some of the options in the reg i posted, but i originally just duplicated all the wim entries and took the screenshot. I "smoke" alot. The right click options will only show up when you right click on a wim or esd, and the proper things should be left out when it's an esd. I want to add i modified the original script from somewhere and didn't write the majority of it. Very useful though for common wim edits. I probably should throw the esd decryption stuff in there too.

    Also, I only use imagex for 3 things; changing the wim "description", to set a /flag like "9" or "ProfessionalWMC", and to use the more detailed imagex /XML /info. If any of these are not needed i'd like to be enlightened. Imagex is a pain to link to when "you" have to manually add it.

    Regarding Wimlib, it's great and i advocate it but it's sheer laziness i don't use it. I have an orgy of dism\cmd\gui\frontends that i wrote in autoit and all use common function variables amongst my apps. The beauty of dism is it's built in to a vanilla install, only lacking features as you go down the OS chain. I'm too lazy to embed the needed Wimlib files as it increases the size and the only current files i include are icons or a config.ini.
