DISM GUI 3.5 Released

February 13, 2013 16 comments

It’s been almost a year since the last release but I just uploaded DISM GUI 3.5 to the Codeplex site this morning.  It contains a few background bug fixes and a few new features.  For this version I have kept it compatible with the Windows 7 WAIK and DISM version.

  • Added Edition Servicing tab
  • Added the ability to apply and unattend file
  • Added application servicing tab

It’s not a major release but adds most of the features available in the Windows 7 DISM program.  You will notice that there is no “online” functionality to allow it to operate on the running OS.  That is something I had planned to put in but was proving hard than I thought with the current version.  I’m hoping to include that in version 4.0

Speaking of version 4.0.  I don’t have a timeframe to release it yet but I do have some of the features planned.

  • Online mode – Allow DISM to be used against the currently running OS.
  • Windows ADK compatibility – The next version will rely on the Windows ADK and DISM version included in it.
  • WinPE compatibility – I am planning on making the next version work inside WinPE.
  • Powershell backend – This one is still up in the air but I may convert the backend to the new Powershell cmdlets instead of relying on DISM.exe.
      There might be more features added but this is what I am planning now.  If you have a suggestion add it to the

    site.
