install_wim_tweak.exe unhide option how?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

The tool install_wim_tweak.exe has an unhide option that shows packages that normally dism wouldn't see.

I wonder, how does it do this, and can I do it without using this tool?

Ahh, ok thanks I got it.

It sets the value Visibility to 1

It also creates a new DWORD value named DefVis and set the value to 2
And deletes the subkey Owners

After one has taken ownership of the key, removal with dism is possible.

Most probably the DefVis is a (completely arbitrary) addition - possibly standing for "Default Visibility" :unsure: - to  allow to distinguish "modified" keys/packages from "untouched" ones... :dubbio:
