WIMGAPI.dll moved to vLite folder Vlite still won't work

5 posts in this topic

I'm using vlite 1.2 final. Vista SP1 in a VirtualBox virtual machine.

I installed WAIK and Vlite, moved the WIMGAPI.DLL file to the Vlite folder per instructions. I ran the vlite program and... it still asks for the WAIK to be installed.

What now?!

You actually need to do a bit more than that.

You also nee the following files in the following directories:

In the vlite folder the file wimgapi.dll

then a folder named wimfltr

in that folder 2 folders named x64 and x86

in those folders the following files:

wimfltr.inf and wimfltr.sys

Dunno it's just how I've done it since it's been needed

Those two files you have referenced wimfltr.inf and wimfltr.sys do not exist anywhere on the hardisk.

Where exactly are they supposed to be located? I searched manually and with Vista's search feature and couldn't find them.

Does the WAIK install them? If so then for some reason it isn't. I checked to see if they were marked hidden and they not.

So where does this leave me?

This is a 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 installation inside a Virtualbox guest if that makes any difference.

I don't see why it should since I've done it this way before.


I seem to have fixed it. I downloaded the WAIK through the link in the vlite program vs the one I was using.

I have no idea what version I was using, but it must have been a newer version or something.

The wimgapi.dll was dated 2009 the one in the WAIK I downloaded is from 2008.

Maybe I got a Win7 version? I'm not sure how though since this is the same I used the last time I needed the WAIK for vlite.

Anyway, it's working now.
