No, it is not supported by default. However you may send us a private message about that issue, because we might think about writing an edition for that reason

Yes, We are really contacting some people to give us an advice about how to use the APIs of Imagex in a fast way. Because Imagex.exe is faster than its APIs We have tested that.

Could you please attach a screenshot.

Alternatively, You can try to use the manually search for the ImageX and OSDIMG. This should work

Now it has been fixed and you can redownload it.

Although not related to the current problems, could you tell me why you have decided to place a log file in the root of peoples system drive.

Also when you say you are the Team Leader, does that mean that you are not the coder?
