Re: Strange Start Menu / Microsoft Store app issue

My transparent disk compression software (which also doubles as my imaging and cloning solution) makes use of both wimlib and wimgapi (Microsoft). I always try to test as many PC images as I can find. I never run into any issues I can't fix. Except: I found one image where, after compression, modern...

Re: ARM64 Support

Due to this unforeseen development, we have had to withdraw from this effort. I have attached the very latest state of the ARM64 adapted code, as it was sent to me by its developer. I hope it is a useful contribution to the great WIMLIB product! Thank you again, very much indeed, for this wonderful ...

Re: ARM64 Support

I checked with dism against the possibility that something might be wrong with the ARM64 build of WIMLIB...it still doesn't work at all in the WIMBOOT scenario. Testing the same tools inside a VMware virtual machine (not ARM64, of course), with the exact same command line parameters, works beautiful...

Re: ARM64 Support

I've asked the author and this was his response: "Yes, I am only change some libraries on mingw toolchain and use clang instead gcc, because gcc version have some problems with building for Arm64(mingw I mean)." I was able to test the EXE successfully yesterday, it seems to be working very well. I h...

Maybe we can help out...

Re: ARM64 Support

Great news - we've finally made some progress! The second developer I hired for this project is almost done. He says that getting mingw to work on ARM64 was the most challenging part of the project, not migrating wimlib itself :lol: Here's the ARM64 binary of wimib-imagex for starters :D I'll run so...

Re: fund features

Unfortunately I don't think wimlib is widely used enough for a foundation to provide adequate funding. Even open source projects that are much more essential, e.g. zlib and OpenSSL, tend to be very underfunded. Can you give us a sense of what would not be considered underfunding, for a project like...

Also I don't believe cadgis ever stated what feature he is requesting, specifically :-)

If you explain it, it could turn out that other people are interested in it too.

Or perhaps it even already exists, just not in the way you thought...
True that!

CPU Parallelism when Applying Image

Is it possible to leverage CPU parallelism when extracting an WIM image onto an SSD target, especially in WIMBOOT mode, but with other modes as well? This would be nice to peak out the underlying HDD while accelerating processing speed dramatically. One extraction per core would be amazing on SSDs a...
