    Command to decrypt an esd file

    Hi

    When Windows 10 downloads an esd file with Windows Update, before installing it, Windows must decrypt it.

    What command used to do this?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Instead, I wanted to understand how Windows does to decrypt the esd files without using external utilities.

    Thanks

    The article Paul linked to does explain, Windows uses DISM

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    In the script, I can not find the DISM command that allows to decrypt an esd file. Why?

    Thanks

    What do you mean decrypt? The file has an internal format that DISM understands and can therefore convert.

    cheers, Paul
