btw, if WDDM works now, have you tried if the Aero Glass implementation works?

I tried to see but without success :( .

The DWMGlass.dll (0.7) is well called

with a message in x86: DWMGlass.dll may not be compatible with the version of windows...

in x64 it gets better but without the Glass implementation.

As it is not really important in a recovery environment, I'm not going further.

Hello Sir ,

Win8PE SE is a very nice one , I can make it perfect and boot well. But I've 2 problems that needs tutor :

1. I use ClearLock in Win8PESE , when I boot Win8PE and see ClearLock , I can do only 2 things :

A. Either it ask me to key in a new password and confirm password (but in WinBuilder , I already input the password with "abcdef" without quote.

B. Access Denied 3 time after I key in "abcdef" with quote

I've tried to modify the ClearLock.ini in Windows\System32 , and set :


Both with and without quote , but all failed with "Access Dennied"

Please , what is the definition of the password , has quote ? small letter ? minimum 6 characters ? or what ?

2. I made the Win8PESE to 64-bit mode. But it doesn't support UEFI boot , what I know is to make it UEFI boot , just add some UEFI boot file in it is OK. But I don't know how.

Please help

Hi gotenks98,

[success] DirMove - Moved directory [%BaseDir%\Target\Win8PESE\sources] to: [%BaseDir%\ISO\WIM\boot.tmp]

[success] DirMove - Moved directory [%BaseDir%\Target\Win8PESE\Users] to: [%BaseDir%\ISO\WIM\boot.tmp]

[Failed] DirMove - Failed to move directory [%BaseDir%\Target\Win8PESE\Windows] to: [%BaseDir%\ISO\WIM\boot.tmp]

I do not really know, difficult to know why it blocks on a simple DirMove command, it runs on those just before, Maybe AV related!

In this step, error in postconfig, you do not need to rebuild the whole project, in Final\PostConfig uses the "Create new Target Image and ISO" button.

Maybe try without your AV or add an exception on your Win8pese base folder. Not great but I do not know how to help you.

I think I figured this out. It seems to be drivers that were inject that are causing it. I payed attention to the dism output during the driver integration part of winbuilder and noticed a few errors. When I tried to rebuild without adding drivers it succeeded. So now I need to do some testing with dism on just a naked image to see where the problem lies.

Good that you found the reason, good research to see where the problem lies :)

I was in the process of changing the script to use Robocopy sourcedir destdir /MOVE /MIR /FFT instead of the WB DirMove command.

if you need, tell me, I can go on, it is maybe safer and we can have the log on screen

About AV: I do not think necessarily has an x-ware or a false positive, but at a timeout issue which could be related.

Good continuation

If required one day, use a distributable* 3rd party ;)


Like Call,DirCopy

Call,DirCopy http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=45.0

We can easly have Call,DirMove , Call,DirMoveX ..

If required one day...


For this case (thanks gotenks98 figuring out)

Maybe making echo-log to dism operation on driver integration

+ I mean using tee.exe (dism.log) + echofile.exe (the one at support log)

is a good idea so error can be more visible on build-log (along with drivers info integrated by user ;)),


catching error line and putting an "echo warn" possible by checking dism.log

out of dirmove case, it seems to me useful feature...


Overall it would be a good idea to put an info to driver integration plugin dirmove line

//Moving Directory can fail if folder busy (ex: failure on driver integration)


One more idea,

Maybe gotenks98 dirmove successfull but due to dism failure source directory not deleted :)

if that is the case we may figure out workarounds...


if you can provide drivers that cause failure, ChrisR may reproduce and decide best possible solution easier....

If I may and JFYI, there is a "perfect" replacement for Robocopy in strarc (by the good Olof Lagerkvist):
