BUG found, while I removed accessories--windows onecore of Win10-10547, my windows freezed, even Ctrl Alt+Del doesn't work, I can move my mouse, but my mouse can not click anything.

hey,
this cpu got 4 cores (8 threads) right ?

- NEW : "Removing Profile - Insane" : Preliminary support ... ONLY for CPU with 8 or more cores, and 10 or more Gb RAM memory

so maybe you cant use the insane Profile.
winter should be able to answer this better if he meant 8 cores or 8 threads

KrX is right, "Insane" removing profile is still experimental, so it's not totally optimized, this is why it hangs on your system. Just use the "Highest" removing profile until I will update the "Insane" profile. And take care because this alpha is recommended to be used with Windows 10 TH1 builds, and you are using a TH2 build, don't worry this should work either, and I'm not against a report about that Smile

I meant for 8 threads, thanks for the reminder Smile

Exactly, the alpha test will be done step by step to be sure to solve the most troubles as possible, using your reports. So, please, use the WCCF presets file provided in the zip package, each time a new alpha is released. This is mostly to be sure, that I'm working on the same WinReducer Components as you Wink

And please, do not select new components to remove once the wccf is loaded, but I encourage you to deselect them to test different combination possibilities.

Hi

TEST 2

removing speed: Highest
no bugs

TEST 3 (update to test 1)

insane profile again but this time without "SetACL has stopped working" Smile

Test with v0.4.5.3 and the provided WCCF presets file,
removing speed: Insane.
It is ok but the speed is... a little bit higher.
The advantage is that it uses less CPU and Memory
--------------------------------------------------------------
The second test with deselecting some components:
Mount in 40 second,
Finis in 7 minutes,
Create ISO in 1,40 minutes

I would like to test the alpha builds too, but there is again an old error, which does not let me download and install the software packages.

***** 30.09.2015 07:51:25 - SESSION OPENED *****
ERROR : "7z.exe" and/or "7z.dll" files don't exist ==> Check your "Options - Configuration" page

And NO, it's nothing with my firewall.


UPDATE: I think, it's again a problem with the GetWaikTools.exe, but not sure, because 7z.exe is not loaded too.
Is there maybe another way to download the software folder manualy ?

Do you have a working EX-100 installation folder (other than this alpha) ? If yes, just copy the folder "HOME/SOFTWARE" at the same place in the alpha installation folder.

Seems great, as the boot.wim is also cleaned at the same time, so if you want to have a higher speed you may need to disable the "clean boot.wim".
Could you please develop a little bit more your thought about the insane speed.
Thank you very much !

Hi Winter,
