Hi,

 

Could you please help with below question.

 

I am using WIMGAPI in C++ app from WIN PE for capturing and applying wim images. As per msdn, It is necessary to set the temporary folder path using WIMSetTemporyPath() API before applying the image.

So what is the minimum space that should be reserved  and any other details like how the temp space is actually used?

Regards,

Raghu

I haven't used this myself, but the SDK documentation implies that the path is where the image is being applied to. So the partition you are applying to would need some sort of extra space beyond the size of the image. As for how much space is used, I'm not sure how you could tell. I could be wrong in my interpretation of the help topic. :unsure:

Thanks. You are right. If the additional space is less then the apply image fails in between with error 112(ERROR_DISK_FULL).
