You can ceratainly skip 4, but you may have some programs that need 3. I can't think of any offhand, so you might be able to skip3 also.

Is it normal that after the "Saving Image" step is completed the program closes itself?
I checked the folder containing the files extracted from the .iso and the install.wim looks like it has been updated (now it 3.3 GB, it was 2.8). Can I just copy and replace this file to my bootable usb drive, right?

P.S.
Using WUD I got this message:
TEST -Update 7 installation media-untitled.png
It's an "Update to support the new currency symbol for the Russian ruble in Windows". Maybe it's usefull to report this. Thanks for your program.

warning - the software mentioned in this thread creates folders that are almost impossible to delete. You get the msg 'you do not have permission to delete this folder' etc. I have had 'take ownership' running on the undeletable folders for > 1.5 hour and still do not have control of my own computer. Caveat Emptor - 'let the buyer beware'.

edit > i have finally managed to delete the folders created by the software in this thread using the 3rd party reg fix 'take ownership'. You've got to ask why these folders are undeletable. I don't know if this software is a risk, but IMHO undeletable folders are suspect. If I'm generous, I'd say the software is badly written . . . but as we say in the North of England - I wouldn't touch you with a 10 foot bargepole.

What folders are you talking about? I've used this dozens of times and have never come across any "undeletable" files/folders.

Are you operating as Admin or trying to delete as a Standard User?

It is possible. The cmd file just calls Microsoft programs, dism.exe and reg.exe.

Hard to delete a directory containing a mounted image, or loaded hives. That might happen if either dism.exe or reg.exe are interrupted. If so, the image may need remounting, then unmounting. Or if hives are loaded, simply unload with regedit, or reboot to auto unload them.

I had several mounted images that required special steps to remove found in these Comments.

Wow this worked like a charm.

Precise instructions and an application which works as advertised, I' m really impressed.

Many many thanks SIW2 for the time and efforts you have put in this great application.

Looking at a way to update the sources files and boot.wim as well.

Might be a little while as I am busy for the next few weeks.
