Re: wimlib-imagex.exe cannot find libwim-15.dll in path with ;

Sorry, I missed this post. wimlib-imagex.exe is just linked to libwim-15.dll in the standard way. I.e., it doesn't use LoadLibrary(). Therefore the DLL search order is just the standard way for Windows: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/dlls/dynamic-link-library-search-order#standard-se...

Re: fast MFT scanner recursion

I've uploaded wimlib v1.13.3-BETA1 which contains the optimization you suggested to avoid unnecessarily falling back to a recursive scan. Can you try it out?

Re: export newest / last image only

No, this isn't currently supported, except in the special case of the --update-of option. FWIW, I've wanted to implement this, but it's a bit difficult since wimlib-imagex uses the getopt_long() function to parse its command-line arguments, and getopt_long() considers anything beginning with "-" to ...

Re: fast MFT scanner recursion

1. I think I did it that way just because it was simpler, and at the time not many directories on a default Windows install had object IDs (or otherwise triggered using the recursive scan). It's possible that Windows has changed to start assigning object IDs to more directories and as a result the c...

Re: Wim To ESD & ESD To Wim is always heavy for me ?

It's expected that creating a solid-compressed WIM takes a long time and uses all CPUs (or however many threads you set). It's very computationally intensive.

Re: Possible bug in parsing of LZX headers

What wimlib does is correct for WIM files. There could be other variants of LZX though.
