They were still present at sourceforge early September, I had downloaded pmagic_2013-08-01 and pmagic_2013_09_07_UNSTABLE at this time, but they were ALL removed since.

The "last freeware" (stable) version should be 2013-08-01, which is available from a number of hosting sites, namely MajorGeeks, here:

http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/parted_magic.html

The Source Code which should be here is seemingly also not updated (at least the tar):

http://beefdrapes.partedmagic.com/source/

We will see how this change in distribution will affect the popularity of the thingy, since it is free (as in free speech or "freedom") software, anyone is free to get a copy (paying for it) and to redistribute it, so I wonder how long it will take until newish versions will be all over the net.

Microsoft replaced the link for windows 8 entreprise evaluation with the same link for Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/hh699156.aspx
All links on "Windows 8 Evaluation" in forums, blogs... are directed to 8.1 now :huh:

But, Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation is still available in TechNet Evaluation Center Previous Versions here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/dn407368
Here is the link by choosing Windows 8 Enterprise: https://profile.microsoft.com/RegSysProfileCenter/wizard.aspx?wizid=21D29F49-95D9-44B7-BEDC-5190455C9B27&lcid=1033

For other languages, change the LCID string and hex: en-us - de-de - fr-fr... and 1033 -1031 -1036...

Normally it should remain here for a while, I think and I hope ;)
The Main script on Win8PESE was updated with the 2 links above.

oops, sorry, I already updated with a change in the macro Add_Pin,RecentPrograms .embarrassed.gif
It supports now both the standard PE mode with the "default" hive and the OS mode which uses the administrator account and the NTUSER.DAT hive.
I prefer to update right now.

For information, Win8PE SE was release today with a DVD included, in c't magazin.
Certainly one of the best PC magazine.

Article preview: http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/c-t-Notfall-Windows-2013-2055161.html

Links to Win8pese Homepage and Forum are here: http://www.heise.de/ct/13/26/links/174.shtml

Thanks to Stephan Bäcker and Christian Hirsch for this article :thumbup
Unfortunately I do not speak German.

Here are the first 2 pages for an overview.

:yes:

Finally, I moved the creation of the config file (with the correction) in 1-Copy Files, more appropriate.
There is already in this script the shortcuts creation for the Recovery Environment, if selected.

For Info: the resolution in the config file is for your use or for information.
It is not currently used in the boot process. The resolution is set out in peshell.ini or pecmd.ini.

1-Copy Files and 2-Shell & Config are on server.

Thank you :)

Hi neon2m,

Thank you for making me discover this tool :)
I made quite a lot of modification on the script (customization options are on the interface, folder choice, x64)
By cons, I am not sure that I will add it to the Package which remains the core with only few Apps.
Regards
:)

Hi neon2m,

I looked quickly and I did a first test. it sounds great :thumbup

It is already done, currently, in some Classic shell plugin, at Build time with "Add Menu Item" but it is a good addition.

To keep the previous CustomItem[0-9], I think it would be to good change the name Customtem by CustomPinItem in PinTool.au3 1.2.3

Customtem => CustomPinItem :

Local $i = "CustomPinItem" & $ItemNo + 1

$sItemVal= StringRegExpReplace($sItemVal, "CustomPinItem[0-9]*,", "")

If StringRegExp($sTmpAll[$i][0], "CustomPinItem") = 0 Then

So the previous Customtem entries are preserved.

Example with this Fuwi ClassicShell plugin http://sdrv.ms/1bmENae

What do you think ?

Agree, It is not mine but fuwi's plugin as example.

but it is well, by adding 1 or 2 options, it can fit most users by replacing my plugin.

Give me time, thank for your nice addition :)

Hi neon2m,

There are no fundamental changes in shortcuts.exe, it seems OK.
I saw your toPECMD program, I have not looked in detail or tested yet, is it finished?
It seems really interresting for Pecmd fans :)
Shortcuts does well its work for several years now, ToPECMD could be inserted into a new script in the Finals folder for those who prefer.
However, I prefer PinTool program especially for your addition: Pin to Start Menu in ClassicShell.
I will study, thanks :thumbup

Thanks :) I'll try to find time, next week, to watch all this. I need to spend less time on PE now.

For ClassisShell, I think that it is better to start with fuwi's plugin, post #93 above, with some nice stuff.
