WinNTSetup v3.9.4 / 4.0 Beta 6

Recommended Posts

Abbodi1406, nice to see you around...

Let's not get into the image.exe timings anymore. I think the point is clear: Imagex.exe was almost "forgotten", but as Abbodi1406 found out, it can be useful for direct apply of UUP files, and fast as well, for some people (with old hardware/ disks?) even faster than the mighty WinNTSetup.

If people are concerned with/ interested in this time difference, I'm sure they will try it themselves. That's it.

-From Google translate-

From version 3.8.8.* I install Windows from LiveXP or Live7 and at the very end of installation the error message is displayed. She repeats on 2 times everyone. But all the same installation is carried out correctly. Why it can be?

"The application or library *** isn't image of the program for Windows NT. Check purpose of an adjusting disk."

The message is repeated two times because it is related to two files:

bootstx.dll

bootstx.dll.mui

Most probably (for whatever reasons and whatever those files are) they are compiled for an earlier version of the OS.

This would make sense for LiveXP (as most programs are now compiled for MajorVersion 6 and Minor version 6.1 or 6.2 and anyway XP doesn't uses .mui files) but that shouldn't apply to a 7 based PE. :unsure: , unless somehow a later (10) version is in use?

You can be right. But from the same assembly of LiveXP but in the WiNTSetup version 3.7.*.* such mistakes weren't

On 7 based PE I didn't check. But I will surely try

XP support is hard to maintain and so it get's often broken.

I soon will remove it completely.

Seriously, as long as an "old" version working with XP remains available that would be just fine :), after all it is not like new, strange ways were added (for XP) in the last several releases,

JFX, as you're the biggest imagex (and wimgapi) experts I know, I wonder if you could shed any light on this:

- I downloaded the new 17063 preview UUP files yesterday, installing them with WinNTSetup worked just fine (that's unconverted UUP files, so .esd and .cab, 33 files).

To repeat my imagex speed comparison test, I also tried to apply using imagex:

Q:\WinNTSetup\Tools\x86\DISM\imagex.exe /apply g:\Professional_nl-nl.esd 3 c: /ref g:\*.*

This worked fine with the previous preview, so I already included in some test batches. With the latest preview however, I get this error:

[   8% ] Applying progress: 10:46 mins remaining

Error restoring image.

The supplied user buffer is not valid for the requested operation.

Do you have any idea what's going on here, why would imagex fail where wimgapi works? I

What version of imagex.exe are you using?

Latest have a bug, so I chose to stay with 10.0,15063,0.

Thank you for your reply. I'm using the version from the WinNTSetup tools folder (downloaded by WinNTSetup). It is indeed the 16299 version.

I will try to find the 15063 version, can't remember now how to get it :-) (Will try).

So you say 16299 has a bug, which bug is that? I find it strange that the previous previews applied fine, but not this one. Does it sound to be related to the bug you found?

PS: Would the 15063 version have the same UUP file apply capabilities (will test if/when I find it).

Thanks, that did the trick! :thumbup

Still very strange that the error didn't play up for me until now, sorry again for not remembering your errors (but it must have been in the back of my mind, that's why I came straight back to "the master" to ask! <g>) Thanks for the link to the previous versions, will save it!
