Error 18


Recommended Posts

Nikola, hi, are you sure your WIM engine is working properly, for example can you mount the same image with let's say DISM, just to see if your Windows are not the issue here?
NTLite does not use DISM for mounting.

NikolasS92, have you installed Windows ADK ? or something related to Windows 8 which updates WIM runtimes?

i had this error too, but after removing Windows ADK it works

Weed, that shouldn't matter, I have ADK installed as well, and I had tried NTLite on clean Windows.

We may have two different issues.

I think one way to get this is to have mounted one image edition, then trying to mount another from the same WIM with the previous one still mounted, if this is confirmed I will fix it.

Will try myself later.

Ok, let's move forward then.

If you run in elevated cmd "fsutil behavior query disablecompression" does it return 0 or 1?
If it's 1, please check in regedit:

If NtfsDisableCompression is set to 1, try deleting it, or set to 0.
Reboot, retry loading the image.

tordenflesk and radiku, sorry for the delay, haven't seen this topic until now.


That's interesting, I cannot replicate the issue.

Please attach ntlite.log file (File-Settings-Temp) at the moment of the error.


Thanks for the feedback.
