  1. so scp how did u get explorer working ? im using 5270 and the corresponding ximage.
  2. Would it be possible for you to elaborate a little, cause I thought I was doing it correctly and its not working for me but on the Old WinPE my Vb6 app works fine.
  3. I've been doing the same old stuff as before (add the runtimes etc) and my vb6 app wont work inside of the new winpe but it was fine in the xp sp2 PE ? I also use a menu building program for my main interface and that as well worked fine in the xp sp2 WinPE but won't launch on the new Winpe. I'm getting extremly frustrated and am hoping someone is having better luck then I. I was really excited about the ramdrive and what not in the new winpe, I even got my ramdisk working inside of the ramdrive so I can write to files, but now that my vb6 app wont run and I cant get my autorun to work (which is the piller of light in my setup) I'm losing faith. Hope someone has some ideas.
  4. Well then I am really doing something wrong cause I have I have generated all new files. So now im really confused, and when I add the vb6 dll's my vb6 apps wont launch anymore that I made for my installer. or my Autorun for that matter and I have no idea why.
  5. Im very upset with the new WinPE 2005 (Win2k3 SP1). So im trying to do the old add explorer to WinPE trick and its giving me a very strange error. I've attached a screenshot of the BSOD im getting. It seems like the new winpe cataloges the files its suppost to have in it and if there are extra files it dosent like that. But im really not sure it just happened and I havent had time to experiemnt with it I figured I would post about it and then do some more work. The error is. STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error} The Non-DLL file included in KnownDLL list. system process terminated unexpextedly with a status of 0xc000036f (oxe1174060 0x00000000). The system has been shut down. Any ideas ? EDIT: I've been playing with it a bit more and it seems to have alot of stuff allready in the registry and seems a bit more functional then the previous winpe's but Im not sure, and if thats true then why is it having such a hard time.

    Gotta love corporate policy, I know I do.
  7. Im not sure what you mean by that first sentence about ghost but I know that ghost is one of the only ways for me to REMOVE the lock so that I can use paragon for example to wipe the drive and reformat otherwise winpe has it locked. So for me ghost is great but I shouldnt hafta run ghost for just a sec to "UNLOCK" my HD it dosent make sence. espicalley for a product thats suppost to deploy an OS. I mean microsoft hasnt really said this is for recovery even though there heading that way but from that standpoint, its horrible to have anything write to teh drive if its crashed er what not, and your trying to recover data. I hope someone here has a solution to this, cause I would love to know as well, I havent played with teh new WinPE enough, I mainly have used the WinXP SP2 one so maybe this has allready be rectified, I wont know till I try.
  8. I don't have an answer to your question, but I think the new winpe 2005 (Win2k3 SP1 OPK) has a ramdisk built in and I am pretty sure they have one for 64. But I have never used WinPE 64 myself. Is it any cooler (meaning faster better, features etc ?) then the 32bit ?
  9. WinPE for some odd reason takes the primary master drive and somehow puts files on it or uses it for something and so when your dealing with the primary master HD when using WinPE from a CD or DVD it does a lock on the drive cause it is using it. Why it does this I have no idea, for data recovery its not good at all, and from my standpoint it screws me all up cause when I try to use like a partitioning tool or what have you, I get a similar error. When I launch ghost32 and try to do something it it, it can override the lock and give you back control. But its kind of lame to hafta do that just to get it up and going. I would love to find a way auround this. I am currently using paragon for my partitioning needs and when I try to use it I have the same issue, unless I go ahead and do the ghost method of unlocking it first. Hopefully someone with more experience in this will chime in with a wonderful answer to make both our lives simplier. But this is definently something that has been bothering me as of late. Even curiouser is that WinPE works fine without an HD, so why if there is one, does it have to interact with it unless I tell it too.
  10. I highly doubt it, but u never know, I dont think were gonna get cool stuff like that till LH OPK.
  11. I have just recieved my WinPE 2005 OPK cd its the new WinPE for windows server 2003 sp1, the build I recieved was for the RC 1289. Upon checking the docs before I even dig any deeper Im greeted with these new features. Now these new features are cool, the only one which really intrests myself is the boot from USB Flash Drive, but sadly ive been doing that for a while now allready, took MS long enough to catch up. Now this is a far cry from what we were expecting a few months back when MS announced the new WinPE versions, I dunno if any of you remmeber but the WinPE 2004 was suppost to support all this stuff and then the WinPE 2005 was suppost to be what they were calling the Interim OPK, which added support for the new WIM image based deployment method (what Longhorn uses to install) The SMS Beta introduced some of the WIM tools but they were very specific to using the SMS to deploy them. I dunno about the rest of you but im pretty dissapointed. Let me know what every1 else thinks and if anyone out there has played with this new verison yet.
  12. Hmm, and its stability isnt so grand either, ive used it I know. Well I suggest you get creative with XP and winpe2004 cause your just wasting time putting any energy into an old a** build thats not compatible with anything. Whats really intresting is what are u asking anyways ? How you can use winpe as a basis? I suggest you get yourself more familar with WinPE in general if you plan on spending alot of time with it, it can get frustrating.
  13. Umm Who care about 3718 it's soo dawm old ? I dont understand. Any1 that spends extended time with OLD builds, is wasting there time considerably. I suggest you move on to more recent things, or better yet wait until something worth while is out to base your whatever on. When I hear people doing mods and what not to 4074 I laugh and its the most recent build (that most have), and its over 6 months old as well.
  14. When I used the HP tool I didnt check the make dos disc and I didnt check if the quick format button I just launch it leave it on FAT and format the usb drive.
  15. When I get cyclic redundency on a HD it means its bad, maybe you wrote to your flash drive too much and now its dust, im really not sure. I just hope for your sake its still under warranty.
