    After installing KB4041691 CU for my LTSB 2016 (1607) this resetbase cmd never ends working or is it hung?

    No I didn't and I've just checked it now, it has a "1". Thanks for the tip.
    Going to test as soon as I restore a system image and start over again...

    You cared enough to fix the W10UI scripts ;):p:D

    Btw, on 16299.15 > 16299.19 it didn't break resetpc.
    On tablets a very handy option to reinstall windows ;)

    It seems way above my experience too, but let's see :biggrin:

    Surely that brilliant idea can be implemented in an easier way today.

    I think that when that program was written there wasn't any better solution to deal with the (then new) Vista restricted permissions.

    So half of the program is dedicated to backup, remove and restore the permissions. Something that likely can be avoided using nsudo or alike.

    Also, at the time, there wasn't a command to deal with [hard]links (hence the use of the external ln.exe utility), nowadays we have mklink ready to be used...

    But easier doesn't mean easy, what winsxslite does is incredibly simple conceptually, but complicate to implement correctly. Especially taking in account that a mistake can destroy an installation...;)
