Hey guys, thanks for this tool. I just ran it on an online win10 system to remove defender and other packages. The tool runs, messages its removing packages, then exits but the list of packages from the /l command shows Defender etc. still there. What am I missing? Thanks.

I thought I'd make a friendly request here for someone to compile the latest version of install_wim_tweak to run on .NET4(.6). This way, one shouldn't have install an entire .NET runtime on Windows 10 in order remove a couple of components.

 

Done. Check the first page.

 

The only thing I did was to download the source, change .NET version in project properties and build :)

Hi

 

I used this tool to get rid of Cortana from my Windows 10 Pro and it worked fine. The method used was from this thread here:

 

http://superuser.com...a-on-windows-10

 

It got rid of three packages and after a reboot, it was done.

 

However, if I want to re-install Cortana later, how do I go about doing it please?

 

Thanks.

That's not particularly 'helpful'!

 

I was hoping for something more technical than sticking a wet finger in the air and hoping the wind will blow in the right direction.

 

What I've done so far is taken the Win 10 installation files (from the Win 10 USB update tool), converted the install.esd to install.wim and navigated to the 'sources\install.wim\Program Files\WindowsApps\' folder, but there's no sign of Cortana there to re-install, so not sure how to proceed?

 

Any suggestions please?

 

Further edit:

 

I found it under:

 

X:\sources\install.wim\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy\

 

How do I re-install it from there, please?

Why go through all this trouble? If you wanted Cortana then you should have kept it, failing that AFAIK then you are going to have to reinstall windows 10.

Just experimenting, that's all. :)

 

I didn't realise it was a permanent deletion of the package at first. But, I don't want it anyway.

 

However, all knowledge is useful, and it would be useful to know how to re-install things like this if for example my daughter's laptop were to have stuff removed that she later wanted putting back.

 

Reinstalling Windows 10 seems like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.

 

There must be an easier way to re-install single packages?

Feature Request :)

@Legolash2o: Is it possible 'install_wim_tweak' to export particular componenets in a separate folder or as packed CAB files? (something like 'SXS_Extractor')?

Thank you sir. I downloaded code myself and was looking at fixing but too many other things. Especially removing Cortana +1. No more 3.5 except for a few other programs I have. Is that the latest source also?
