Help: How to add .NET Framework packages to WinPE 5.0 image?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, this is my first post.

I have written a batch file to build a (64-bit) WinPE 5.0 ISO using Windows ADK 8.0

I've attached the batch file to this post.

 

I'm attempting to add .NET Framework 4.5.1 to my WinPE image.  I downloaded a .NET Framework 4.5.1 redistributable and extracted the executable to find the relevant cab files:

Windows8-RT-KB2881468-x64.cab

WSUSSCAN.cab

 

Then tried to add those packages to the WinPE image but it fails.

 

How far off track am I?.... Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Regards,

Mitch

Starting from Windows 8 there should be (somehow limited) support for .Net through "normal" Add-Package: 

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824926.aspx

 

Or try checking "previous art".

Namely Win7pE_SE, Win8PE_SE and Win8.1SE:

http://w8pese.cwcodes.net/projectindex.php

http://win81se.cwcodes.net/projectindex.php

have .scripts for .Net integration (Winbuilder syntax is all in all readable and relatively easy to "translate" to batch or however extracting from a .script the needed files and Registry settings is not difficult).

 

I believe that there won't be many differences between a PE 3, 4 or 5/5.1 :unsure:, the project by wimb:

is "batch based" and may provide you with further insights.

Awesome, thanks jaclaz!  

I'm stuck doing normal people activities today.... (girlfriend's friend's wedding) so I have to tear myself away from the computer, but I look forward to looking over all of the resources you've provided me when I get home (if I'm not too inebriated). 

 

Cheers!
