Windows 7: Using Dism++

Using Dism++

Since the instructions for this program are literally in Chinese, I've used only the Win Update and Cleanup features, which I learned at this forum. Are there other useful features you recommend, and are there translations somewhere of the directions?

DISM++ can do the following [among other things!] . . .

Backup & Restore Activation Key & 3rd Party Drivers.
Export Drivers.
Offline & Online Updates.
Creates a new ISO.

What in particular are you wanting to know?

DISM++ Website [you might need to translate the page] => DISM++ - New Windows Utility.

I hope this helps!

A lot of it looks too technical for me. I wouldn't trust a translation program to work on technical computer terms.
Of your list, I see only the reference to an image, under "File," and I already have a driver exporter.

What's an offline update?
What does System Optimizer do? My other machine has something slowing it down, and I haven't found it yet
What's "backing up the activation key?"

An offline update is where somebody already has WU KB MSUs already on the computer's drive, you type the commandline naming an MSU, and dism++ will install said MSU or return an error message. For example:
DISM++x[32 or 64].exe /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\wusa\UPDATE_NAME.msu
In my situation, all the dism files, and the needed MSUs, reside in c:\wusa.

A competitor, PortableUpdate, does something similar concerning WUs, it searches for, downloads the needed WUs, installs same or returns an error message.

System optimizer is probably akin to our optimizers -- they purport to slim trim Windows via some techie-magic to make things go faster and smoother. However, be advised that sometimes faster is not always better. Make OS full images before experimenting.

Dism++ is one of the most useful programs you can get.
It can install and uninstall updates and drivers.
It can mount and service ( add/remove updates and drivers ) to windows images ( wim files - e.g. installation media ).
It can back up and restore the operating system.
It can backup and restore your windows activation.
It can be run from one operating system ( or boot media ) and pointed at another operating system to perform all the above on the operating system you pointed it at.

The User Interface makes it very obvious what to do.

We already have optimizers?

It's not obvious to all of us, otherwise I wouldn't have asked. Some of these things have no instructions. How do I backup and restore my windows activation? How do I know if
I'll stick with programs I know.Thanks

This might give you a small insight . . .

[1] Using DISM++ to run/add Windows Updates.
[2] Using DISM++ to export drivers [including third-party drivers] from your current OS installation 1.

I hope this helps!

First make sure you have a folder called ActiveBackup. If it not there, create it.

Then Click Toolkit, then click Activation Backup.
