I'm trying to preinstall a few explorer RAW codecs in a windows image, so they're installed automatically, how can I do this?

They're *.dll x64, and I'm making an x64 win7 image.

There are a few in *.ax as well, but is there much of a difference install wise?

You can manually copy those into the image, but they can't be injected. Does your image already have an answer file in it?

No, but I could easily make one, I'm just starting this out, I'm even willing to mount the image registry and try to copy the registry settings. like, there's NO possible way to inject them?

DISM only supports .cab and .msu files for injection.

But what about deploy OS into Audit Mode, install all your files they way you want, then sysprep /generalize and capture the image?

I may have to capture the image, but I find that the image isn't as clean that way, there are settings and stuff like that set and I personally prefer to avoid it if at all possible, is there a way to create an installable cab though? because that could be AMAZING.

Copy the files directly into your install. Then register them at the Setupcomplete.cmd stage (or earlier) with the Regsrv32.dll in the System32 folder and not the one in 'syswow64' folder unless they are 32bit DLL's.
