Looking for a GUI for DISM
Basically, I want it to look like "Turn Windows features on or off", only working off cab files in a DS (distribution share). Also, as a bonus, would be nice to be able to use this booted from a flash drive, on a system that is offline.
There are some existing GUI's for DISM, but they don't list and explain the different packages, with checkboxes next to them (the checkboxes to add/remove the packages). Package dependencies could show up highlighted on the list. Hovering over a highlighted package could show which currently installed, or about to be installed package(s) require it.
I guess this isn't exactly a "coding snack", but it should be easy if the underlying foundation is already there, and you just need a GUI for it.
The original title for this was "GUI for pckmgr". I found out pckmgr was deprecated, and replaced with DISM. I got the idea that maybe pckmgr had the ability to work on both online and offline systems. The "offline" part is a little confusing: it only works on WIM files (for making custom Windows installers). DISM is the same. The semantic difference is the "installer" versus the "installation". They call the WIM file an "offline" system. I think of an offline system as a windows installation that isn't running. I am pretty sure that both pckmgr and DISM don't work on a windows installation, only on a mounted WIM file.
