Windows Server 2008 R2 (not sp1), how clean the winsxs directory?


  • Following this useful article below I didn't succeed in executing the command DISM.exe

    The result I had:
    C:\Windows\system32>DISM /online /Cleanup-Image /SpSuperseded

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.1.7600.16385

    Image Version: 6.1.7600.16385

    Error: 87

    The spsuperseded option is not recognized in this context.
    For more information, refer to the help.

    The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

    How can I execute it without any SP installed? Is there an alternative method to clean this directory?

    Thanks in advance!
