You must remove install.wim and rename install2.wim as "install.wim"!
It's better to save first original install.wim file before!

You can read how to do, here:
For the Capture phase, do you use the same mount folder from the previous Apply phase, or use a different mount folder?

That's what I have been following. To me its not 100% clear whether I should use the same mount folder both times, or a different mount folder for the capture. This is what I just wanted to double check....

when process is finished go "Capture" tab
Source: empty folder path (Mount in the example)

It works for me with WAIK 1.1.
For whatever reason, which I dont understand, Gimagex wont work with WAIK 2.0 and WAIK 3.0 on my PC.
You must install the WIMMount filter before you can mount an image. Disable System Restore when running Windows image filter. Windows imaging filter may fail when copying files into the mount point. On Windows Server 2003,
running the xcopy command against a Windows image mounted from DVD or CD may cause system failure. Do not run the xcopy command during the mount.

Indeed, I have not yet to find how "unmount"
I use "take ownership" on each folder and delete the files after

Here is the way I got it to werk, NOW THIS IS NOT FOR EVERYONE SO TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
I replaced in Vlite's root folder wimgapi.dll with win 7's wimgapi.dll from WAIK tools ( WAIK tools folder -> x86 folder\wimgapi.dll )( have to download the iso from MS ) and install WAIK to get these files .
You will need to uninstall the Vista wimfltr that is loaded on your PC ( if you have ran vlite after installing it ) as the files from WAIK 7 are not the same , not sure how to do it manually as I have the InstWimFltr.exe by JFK from a winbuilder project that I use, that will uninstall the wimfltr of Vista's ( yep fixed that winbuilder project too with WAIK 7 Files )
Also a reboot when uninstalling these files wont hurt, after removal of the wimfltr of Vista's just to clear any memory that might be latched onto these files.
From WAIK, I also copied in the x86 and (amd64) wimmount.sys replacing wimfltr.sys by renaming wimmount.sys to wimfltr.sys respectfully in both x86 and x64 folders so yes delete wimfltr.sys in both folders first then copy in the win 7 files .
I didnt change the wimfltr.inf at all, I left it as vlite installed it, I just replaced the wimfltr.sys in Vlite's folder with wimmount.sys from WAIK and renaming it to wimfltr.. easy peasy
what you end up with is Vlite using win 7 dll files, it werkd for me, but I got a error or 2 at first, then they went away, I made 4 builds back to back with the SP1 x64 and everything was fine and the iso installs fine too.
NOTE: even uninstalling Vlite from Add | Remove Programs DOES NOT UNINSTALL the Vista wimfltr!
NOTE 2: After running Vlite on a win 7 moddin win 7 have you ever encountered that DISM fails( Pre SP1 iso files that is )??
NOTE 3: I got a few small errors after doing the above from Vlite, but after a few errors passed all was good hence the TRY IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Anyways maybe that is enough for some more knowledgeable person to figure out a better werk around than what I have done.
Vlite does the job I want quicker than RTLite, RTLite is way to slow and seems like it wants to just freeze up the whole time I run it,.. a scalpel over a hammer any day lol , this is my werk around for that

A. Install and configure
1.Download and install: "Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows Vista SP1 and Windows Server 2008."
This program is provided free from Microsoft, and can be found here:
2. Download and install: vLitev1.2 Final : [ http://www.vlite.net/download.html].
First make sure you have first completed Step 1, and that you installed the correct AIK version—the AIK for Vista SP1, NOT the AIK for Windows7
(vLite 1.2 is designed for use with the AIK for Vista SP1) before downloading and installing vLite 1.2.
When vLite is launched, it looks for a few components of the AIK program and copies them into a few special folders of the vLite program. It needs these components.
If you encounter a vLite error during use
Various forums posts here note " vLite must be configured correctly". This means that vLite has, as expected, created certain folders and placed certain AIK components in them.
For vLite to do this, the AIK has to be installed before you launch vLite. Therefore, if you encounter errors using vLite,
· first ensure you have installed the correct version of Windows AIK required here (see Step1).
· See if a folder called "wimfltr" exists inside \ProgramFiles\vlite. (It would be inside \Program Files(x86)\vlite for 64-bit Windows). If that subfolder isthere, look inside it.
It should have inside two subfolders, an "x86"subfolder as well as an "x64"subfolder, and each should have 2 files inside them, wimfltr.inf and wimfltr.sys.
· If you have the correct version of Windows AIK installed (see Step 1), and installed vLite after installing the AIK, but those subfolders and two files are for some reason not there:
· Create a new folder inside C:\Program Files\vLite and name it "wimfltr"—be careful to spell it properly with an "m" (wim): "wimfltr" .
Then, create subfolders inside it called "x86" (\wimfltr\x86) and "x64" (wimfltr\x64).
Then copy the correct versions of wimfltr.sys and wimfltr.inf into them, as follows:
These are the 2 files: wimfltr.inf, wimfltr.sys
Copy them both from here,
C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86 to here, C:\Program Files\vLite\wimfltr\x86,
Copy them both from here,
C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64 to here, "C:\Program Files\vLite\wimfltr\x64.
If vLite crashes during use
Ensure you have unmounted any previously mounted images. Close any other programs that were running when you ran vLite.
Rerun vLite with no other programs running or images mounted.
Crashes can happen.Reboot, try again.
I hope that can help you!
