Another WAIK script.

Btw do you have a SmartWim license?

And I am not sure you can distribute MS EXE files.

Service pack??? :blink:

Anything I throw @ it?? :blink:

It would be the first to make a software to integrate it , but is it reallly that hard for people either make a reverse image, and/or integrate stackfiles etc .. i dont think its hard .. it take approximatly 10 minutes to make a image ready with the same this.

Anyway at it is now, i wouldnt go for it , and actually i hope Nuhi maybe get to get around this sp1 integreation with waik script

1. Yes another WAIK script everything else is too much work.

2. Yes. I am not a professional programmer and i don't know how to handle this wimgapi.dll.

3. I am not sure about

Hi Albert!

This sounds like a good program but I ran into some difficulties as .NET framework 3.5 is always hanging on my machine and refuses to install as expected.

My OS is Portuguese Vista Home Edition x64

Do I really need to install a 200Mb framework to run this program?

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...en#Requirements

Just a suggestion, please consider using a more flexible language that doesn't limit your program to be depending on the .NET framework.

AutoIt (basic related) is a good example of this: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3

You'd be able to code a program that would surely run on most windows machines without any worries about including (redundant) .NET frameworks.

I personally use delphi 7 (pascal based) for years and it's a heck of a good compiler and many other good options exist for C as well.

This would be a plus when compared to other programs with similar functions that explicitly require .NET

---

Downloaded beta 3 and used UniExtract to take a glimpse on the binaries you've included.

To replace SmartWIM you can use WimUtil (coded in AutoIt by a russian developer called Nikzzzz for NightMan, author of VistaPE): http://vistape.net/beta - very simple to be used as you can double click on the exe to see the instructions.

It's free and the developer will likely add any additional functions that you require, he can be contacted here: http://www.boot-land.net/forums/View-Membe...ofile-m711.html

oscdimg.exe can be replaced with mkisofs.exe, look for it under the same page I've posted for wimutil and I'm sure that you can find replacements for most of the restricted copyrighted files that you're including on the package.

---

...

And I am not sure you can distribute MS EXE files.

I'm quite sure that it's not legal to distribute files developed by Microsoft without their express permission but then again I think that Albert doesn't need to worry that much since vlite is also doing the same redistribution with the wimfltr driver or has nuhi a special permission to distribute files from their WAIK? :whistle:

---

Albert, since you're just starting up.

Would you consider an open source development?

It would likely relief you from a unlikely court-room process as it would become a non-profit development and also allow many other developers along the road to help you and provide additional features and ensure it would be used by other popular projects.

I can help with free website/file hosting for large bandwidth usage and provide testing feedback as this project has potential to become very useful for a few Vista related projects such as VistaPE and Driverpacks but it would require team work to see this program grow instead of falling into oblivion within a few months.

Wether open/closed source and requiring .NET or not I'll still be happy to help in whatever needed.

Thanks for sharing your work with us. Take care.

:)

Good to see Siginet/DriverPacks members actively working on this area, at the moment I was only aware of these talks: http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?id=142

And on the VistaPE side this is also being discussed: http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?...ost&p=31858 where boot land members are pondering to create and support a new tool from scratch or merge human efforts with other teams more focused on this specific Windows Install area. (our area of expertise are boot disks)

But with so many people working on separate sides we're all bound to miss the opportunity to make a good open source tool for everybody to enjoy since this is a much needed feature for the future.

I would really be happy to to see a common effort to produce such tool.

:)
