Recommended Posts

Hi and sorry if I posted in wrong section. I was wondering if there's any way I can programmatically edit description file for .WIM files?

Thanks :blushing:

the entries marked green can change, but not the entries marked in red, and since I can't edit the red entries, the changes won't display in Edition selection in setup...

Try mounting the WIM with the PE Tools Command Prompt, then look for the XML file. It must be in there someplace. I haven't tried it myself, but then again I don't seem to be using the deployment method you are.

no the XML file isn't anywhere inside the WIM, it appears that the XML file is appended to the end of the WIM files.

Yep export all images or just the one you want.

Example :

imagex /export I:\VistaAIO\x86\install.wim 4 I:\VistaAIO\Distribution\SOURCES\install.wim "Windows Vista ULTIMATE (32bit)"

Rename the last part whatever you want.

imagex /export I:\VistaAIO\x86\install.wim 4 I:\VistaAIO\Distribution\SOURCES\install.wim "Windows Vista Ultimate (RED) Edition)"

I use it like this :

imagex /export I:\VistaAIO\x86\install.wim 1 I:\VistaAIO\Distribution\SOURCES\install.wim "Windows Vista BUSINESS (32bit)"
imagex /export I:\VistaAIO\x86\install.wim 2 I:\VistaAIO\Distribution\SOURCES\install.wim "Windows Vista HOMEBASIC (32bit)"
imagex /export I:\VistaAIO\x86\install.wim 3 I:\VistaAIO\Distribution\SOURCES\install.wim "Windows Vista HOMEPREMIUM (32bit)"
imagex /export I:\VistaAIO\x86\install.wim 4 I:\VistaAIO\Distribution\SOURCES\install.wim "Windows Vista ULTIMATE (32bit)"

imagex /export I:\VistaAIO\x64\install.wim 1 I:\VistaAIO\Distribution\SOURCES\install.wim "Windows Vista BUSINESS (64bit)"
imagex /export I:\VistaAIO\x64\install.wim 2 I:\VistaAIO\Distribution\SOURCES\install.wim "Windows Vista HOMEBASIC (64bit)"
imagex /export I:\VistaAIO\x64\install.wim 3 I:\VistaAIO\Distribution\SOURCES\install.wim "Windows Vista HOMEPREMIUM (64bit)"
imagex /export I:\VistaAIO\x64\install.wim 4 I:\VistaAIO\Distribution\SOURCES\install.wim "Windows Vista ULTIMATE (64bit)"

imagex /export I:\VistaAIO\x64\install.wim 4 I:\VistaAIO\Distribution\SOURCES\install.wim "Windows Vista ULTIMATE (64bit)"

that method, AFAIK, only set NAME and DESCRIPTION value, but not DISPLAYNAME and DISPLAYDESCRIPTION value... correct me if I'm wrong...

Just download gimagex, that will allow you to change your description of the wim file. I have tried it and it works like a change.
