imagex /export D:\AIO\WIMs\Win64.wim 4 D:\AIO\DVD\sources\install.wim “Windows 7 HOMEBASIC (x64)”

i recieve this:

/BOOT

/COMPRESS [maximum | fast | none]

Specifies the type of compression used when exporting to a new WIM file.

/REF splitwim2.swm

@ cloferba --> I followed the tutorial EXACTLY as it is written a long time ago and it worked fine. From reading the other thread you have about this tutorial I understand you have a very limited understanding of it.

Don't call an excellent thing bad because you have a hard time understanding it.

Why is the " " bad?

"Windows 7 HOMEBASIC (x64)"

vs

“Windows 7 HOMEBASIC (x64)”

Looks the same, especially in Notepad, but the quotes are actually different key codes. ;)

Really?

I use this "<path to waik\...\Imagex.exe" /export "<path to install.wim" <index> "<path to new install.wim" "<indexname>"

Whats the difference?

Grabben, the " used in the OP's post were the incorrect ones.

In the one option there is (double left quote) and (double right quote)

In the other example is (double quote) and (double quote)

They look the same but are read differently by the system. Other fonts (and locales) quotes are used like this and it is difficult to tell. I've encountered this problem in the past so I was able to notice it right away.

Ah thanks for the clarification :P

Just to try and understand, the "right" things are the plain "double quotes", so if you TYPE the commands given in the Tutorial they will work BUT if you attempt a copy and paste it will fail? :unsure:

Of course, like said Tripedacus there are not the same double quotes: "" are not the same as "" (italics) or double left quotes and double right quotes!.

The tutorial is writed with italics letters for the commands, but we need to write without italics inside the command prompt!!

I think it's a style effect!

In this case we can't copy/paste the commands but we need to write yourself inside the command prompt! :)

Of course. :yes:

Can you tell me how to write double quotes in Italic on command prompt? :whistle:

(unless you use ALT+0147 and ALT+0148 - and that's NOT "italic")

I think it's a style effect!

No, it is NOT. :no:

Copy and paste the following in a new, empty Notepad window:


BAD QUOTES :“”
GOOD QUOTES :""

Save the file.

Open it with a hex editor:

You will see how the double quote is character 22 whilst left and right quotes are character 93 and 94 hex

42 41 44 20 51 55 4F 54 45 53 20 3A 93 94 0D 0A BAD QUOTES :“”

47 4F 4F 44 20 51 55 4F 54 45 53 20 3A 22 22 0D GOOD QUOTES :""

0A

In this case we can't copy/paste the commands but we need to write yourself inside the command prompt! :)

Exactly. :thumbup

Thanks! Sorry, I am not well enough expressed!

I was talking about the style effect inside the tutorial, because the part for the commands are writed with italics letters!

The double quote left (“) and the double quote right (”) don't work inside the command prompt if we copy/paste like this!

The trouble is to copy/paste some commands writed inside some turorials inside the command prompt!

Like you said, inside the command prompt:


BAD QUOTES : “ ”
GOOD QUOTES: " "

That happends when we copy/paste some texts inside Word documents or Internet tutorials or documents, with some fonts, like Calibri: “example”

We need to change the quotation to : "" inside the command prompt

:thumbup

Yes :), but what you have wrong is that the issue is NOT about "italics" the only "double quotes" that you can enter by pressing a keyboard key are "plain ones" aka Char hex 22.

A number of word processors/nice GUI programs when they parse a set of double quotes replace them with left and righ quotes, aka Char hex 93 and 94.

This has NOTHING to do with the font used and with the effects applied to the font.

I was talking about copy/paste the commands like there are writed inside the tutorial (italics letters). :)

Doesn't work if we copy/paste inside the command prompt and we must write manually the commands.

Inside the command prompt it seems that the double quotes (originally italics with copy/paste) are writed correctly but they aren't valid!

Yes :), and again, it is not because they are italics, or because they are in Calibri font, it is because the whatever the Author of the Tutorial used to write the html page automatically replaced "plain quotes" with "left and right ones".

This has NOTHING to do with:

  1. font used
  2. effects (like bold, italics, underlined or striken) applied

I am not talking about the "final result" of the problem I am talking about the cause that you attribute to it.

Let me show you:

Font Courier New:

plain quotes, normal ""

plain quotes, italics ""

plain quotes, bold ""

plain quotes, underlined ""

plain quotes, striken ""

right and left quotes, normal “”

right and left quotes, italics “”

right and left quotes, bold “”

right and left quotes, underlined “”

right and left quotes, striken “”

Font Microsoft Sans Serif:

plain quotes, normal ""

plain quotes, italics ""

plain quotes, bold ""

plain quotes, underlined ""

plain quotes, striken ""

right and left quotes, normal “”

right and left quotes, italics “”

right and left quotes, bold “”

right and left quotes, underlined “”

right and left quotes, striken “”
