in the README.WINDOWS.TXT from the wimlib Windows distribution there's a warning:
At first I imagined that by backuping my Windows system volume I'd loose all the *.msi/*.msp content in the %windir%/installer folder and with that I'd also loose the "Programs and Features" functionality in the Control Panel or the "Apps & features" equivalent in the Windows Settings for already present installed programs. However after inspecting the resulting *.esd file I can still see the *.msi/*.msp content is still there. So can you please tell me then specific ramifications of the wimlib not being aware of Windows packages?* wimlib-imagex has no awareness of Windows "packages"
