In fact in ICCT 1.2 it's possible to:
- import a Windows base image available in IBM Smart Cloud Provisioning 2.1
- extent it adding Windows bundles created using ICCT 1.2
- capture it in order to have in IBM Smart Cloud Provisioning 2.1 a new extended Windows image
It is provided using the same User Interface and the same steps already available for Linux and AIX support.

For the Windows bundles created using ICCT 1.2 it is also possible to provide in the tabs Inst
The Windows support is provided for the following Operation Systems:
