For the ADK part, does this get the CHMs too?

currently only binary's. no headers/docs/libs.

would be easy enough to add though.

It may be helpful for others. I had forgotten that I have the CHMs from ADKFest, but they aren't RTM yet so they aren't the best.

JFX, this is a really good tool, but I am wondering if the actual WinPE image files could be DLed. The whole PETools folder is almost 1 GB, so maybe options for the various sub folders. Is this possible, doable and legal? When I encourage people to use WinPE, the requirement to DL and install WAIK seems to a significant roadblock. Thanks and enjoy, John.

One easy WIM to get to is the boot.wim on the Windows Setup DVD. But you still can't add any WinPE packages and if you keep adding things for JFX's tool to get, you might as well just download the entire thing! :rolleyes:

Tripredacus, thanks. I have about the same feeling but as I stated, many seem to think it is too much of a hassle. Thanks and enjoy, John.

Yes it's just luck that the tools are in the first MB's of neutral.cab

Get more stuff from the PETools folder would easily go up to 700+ MB download and won't make much sense.

With the web-setup of the adk things will get better.

It certainly is a neat idea, but in practice I've found it doesn't always work for some reason and it times out connecting to the MS DL site. Which is fine since I did have the ISO somewhere already. :rolleyes:

As often happens, OT :ph34r: but not much ;).
http://www.codeproje...ote-ZIP-archive

Introduction

This articles explains a technique for accessing files stored inside a zip file without downloading the whole zip archive. It can be used to access parts of a big ZIP archive, or to download only specific parts of an archive. It works with OpenOffice documents too.

The standard approach of serving parts of an archive file through a Web Server is using a script on the server side, with the fact that the single parts are sent uncompressed; this solution is totally client side and uses the Range header of the HTTP protocol to retrieve specific parts of a ZIP archive.

The new -win8 switch worked for me. Built me a nice little directory "Waik_4" under the directory I specified.

Apologies for this dumb question.

I'm trying to use 7Customer (which requires ImageX, Oscdimg and Dism).

I used GetWaikTools to download the Win7 WAIK files and I can see ImageX and Oscdimg, but I cannot find Dism anywhere. Is GetWaikTools meant to obtain Dism as well?

No.
Dism is part of windows since win7. So there is no need to download it.

- open the install.wim file with 7zip or mount it with imagex
- copy the \Windows\System32\Dism folder to C:\Dism
- copy the following files form \Windows\System32\ inside C:\Dism, dism.exe, (dismapi.dll) and wdscore.exe
- copy the mui files (Dism.exe.mui, DismApi.dll.mui) from \Windows\System32\??-?? to C:\Dism\??-??

Thanks JFX. I finally ended up here in the general PE section. GetWAIKTools is another one of your geniusly perfect tools. I also built my first WinPESE8, so I'll continue thanking you there :thumbup

Thanks a lot for your hard work! GetWAIKTools sure rocks, and you do, too! :thumbup
Sorry to say v 1.5 has a bug, but it seems to be minor. See the attachment, a figure is worth 1000 words. :)

GWT version 1.5 released!
 
- added windows 8.1 Preview files

 
Just for the record, the x86 builds of the two files listed below run OK on Win XP SP3 (being thus the most up-to-date versions of those apps to do so):
 
bootsect.exe  --  version: 6.3.9431.0 having 119,912 bytes; MD-5: EB9398CD972316ECC278D6DD367F42E2
oscdimg.exe  --  version: 2.56.0.1010 having 135,272 bytes; MD-5: 23F4002FEB768A48C725FB7D79959721

Later edit: However, one needs GWT v. 1.5.0 (which is not anymore the latest) to get the above files.
