win6x_registry_tweak Remove Components
Posted 19 August 2011 - 04:02 PM
Removed too many of things on 7 SP1 online with install_wim_tweak.exe /o /c "packagename" /r
Now there is BSOD on boot 0x12a - it cannot find licensed language packs.
Of course, I suspect the following packages:
I don't know if I removed all of them. I was so frustrated it didn't work (see observation below) that I tried multiple times with multiple things.
What can I do to arrive to a desktop? System Restore is and was turned off.
And an observation: This program didn't work until the services Volume Shadow Copy and MS Shadow Copy provider were started. For some reason, they couldn't start themselves. I waited for 16 hours.

I tried it Online inside a VM
install_wim_tweak.exe /o /c Microsoft-Hyper-V /r
the package was removed, but the VM addition drivers are still in the WinSxS folder. I also tried it with the message queuing client and the files are also in the WinSxs folder.
Interesting post about Winsxs folders:
Should you delete files in the \WinSXS directory? And what’s the deal with VSS?

Win7 Home Premium x86 SP1.
I came down to this...
It probably can be better, but for now it's pretty good for my needs.
Haven't tested it much, this install also goes to scrap because of unrelated issue.
Multiple runs were needed, often with different chronological order of retries. And some restaring of VSS service and the computer.
IE9 added some packages. Didn't touch them.
Initial pre-install slimming was done with Windows 7 Toolkit 130-19A, but it also failed to remove some (many?) packages. I didn't count how many.

I did only this, Sir:
install_wim_tweak.exe /o /l install_wim_tweak.exe /o /c PACKAGENAME /r
because I'm a stoopid noob when it comes to Win7 and I don't know anything more.
But thank you, Sir.

Btw, I have an idea. It would be cool if we can have a text file with all package names which we want to remove. Now we should only specify a parameter and your tool reads the text file and removes all the listed packages.

Does running the DISM remove-feature with the online switch rip everything out of the SXS folder reducing your C: drive ? Or does it just remove the feature from the OS and we can run dism enable-feature without requiring the DVD (i.e. files are still in SXS)
This will unhide all the packages on the currently installed OS

Win8 64-bit Pro. Windows Defender Service is running but when I try to run Windows Defender app to bring up the control panel for it I get:
"An error ocurred in the program during initialization.....
error code 0x80073b01
I must have changed a registry setting or something to break it but in true MS fashion, the error message has no meaningful info aside from the error code which when Googled appears to be a rare error.
