    When I Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage, everything is removed except
    Microsoft.VCLibs.140.00 Microsoft.VCLibs.140.00_14.0.27323.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    which is not listed in the .1288 LTSC. Can this be removed otherwise, or does it have to be left in?

    Apparently it wasn't needed in the .1288 LTSC. You mentioned back then that you were glad you asked about that package, because you previously always removed it. How did you do that?
    If you try with powershell, there is no error, but it is not removed and still listed.

    Question : Any chance we can build an 19041.1 as a Starter edition or an idea how to slim down a Core edition to act as a Starter without all the crap bloatware ?

    I posted a similar question to this in the current LTSC 2021 discussion thread, but I'm not sure it belongs there because I'm using a reconstructed .1 2021 LTSC and I apologize if this is considered cross-posting. My problem is that scanning the constructed image including updates shows no integrity violations, whereas scanning after the image is installed, does. The CBS.log is clean and doesn't indicate what's wrong though. Any ideas what the problem is?

    Code:
    Included in image::
    Microsoft-Windows-NetFx3-OnDemand-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.19041.1

    For online repairs, details are included in the CBS log file located at
    windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For offline
    repairs, details are included in the log file provided by the /OFFLOGFILE flag.
    
    c:\>findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails1.txt
    
    No errors in extracted txt file. CBS.log looks clean too.
    

    I ran one last test while the subject system was offline. No errors - only when LTSC is running. Go figure. :weeping:

    I don't know why, but all I found are these files:
    Code:
    Windows10.0-KB5003838-x64-baseless.cab
    Windows10.0-KB5003838-x64-baseless.psf
    Windows10.0-KB5003839-x64-baseless.cab
    Windows10.0-KB5003839-x64-baseless.psf
    And I don't think they're the files I need to obtain.
    I'm using the build: 21382.1000.co_release_svc_prod1.210511-1436.
