Image Assist tools with a factory image installed.

Okay, I've just purchased a new computer to run Hyper V and host my Gold Image and other image VM's.  I installed Image Assist and it is telling me that I can't use it because I have a factory image on the host machine.  What I am trying to do is to use the other tools (i.e. Split Image and USB Drive Creation) on the host machine.  Is there a way to load just the tool as I am not trying to create an image of the host, just the VM's (and they are working fine)?  Are there other tools that will allow me to do what I need to do?  I REALLY don't want to have to undo everything I have already done to set this new machine up and re-install Window 11.

Try modifying the ImageAssist.exe.Config and change value from false to true for the following line:

@DELL-Tyler M​ What is the line on this again?  It is no longer showing in the solution and I did an update to the latest version of Image Assist.

@DougBecker Modify the ImageAssist.exe.Config and change the false value to true for the following line:
