hi me need help for opening install.wim problems

Double click install.wim file, select 'Choose Program', Select notepad ...

Seriously though:

Is this related to downloading the WAIK? Probably not.

Have you provided enough information for someone to diagnose your problem and offer possible solutions? No.

Will anyone post anything that can help solve your problem. I don't think so.

Please help us to help you.

I am facing problem with image creation on an Acer Travelmate notebook.

Command:

imagex /capture /compress maximum c: g:\6292c.wim "TM 6292 drive c".

Every time at "Progress 70%, 21:41 mins remaining", I got this error: "[Error: 112] c:\Windows\System32\DriveStore\FileRepository\winmobil.inf_1c3787bf\wcescomm.dll. Error imaging drive [c:\]. There is not enough space on the disk."

free disk space on c: is 62GB

free disk spac eon g: is 249GB

Anyone can figure out what is the problem?

Hi guys,

there is a new WAIK for Server 2008 / Vista RC1 available on MSDN in case you haven´t realized. However, I think it is available only to MSDN members. It does have an improved oscdimg.exe, one can now create UDF DVDs with that tool. Works great, just tried it.

Bye,

Alex

Hmm,

I was doin the Vista SP1 reverse integration, and was required to use WAIK to compress and created image.wim.

The link given was:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=en

I've downloaded it and use it on my Windows XP SP2, it does work, i've used it and there's somethin else wrong with the install.wim is compressed, so i went to the link above and read more about it, at the system requirement area and it stated Windows XP Service Pack 2 with KB926044, so i though maybe i need KB926044 for it to work properly.

Searching for KB926044, i found another link to WAIK which is:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/info.as...isplayLang%3den

So i'm confuse on what's the difference between those 2? Which to use on Windows XP SP2 to compress Windows Vista?

Thanks.
