Cannot install WoeUSB?

Hi! Trying to make a boot stick for Windows 10, with the hope of dual booting.

For this I need NTFS therefore WoeUSB and no matter what I do it won't install.

via Terminal:

[john@john-pc ~]$ pamac build woeusb

You can format flash card to fat, mount windows iso and copy files to your flash card :man_shrugging:
