Here is a command lilne I am using with imagex to mount an image unsuccessfully.
Can anyone tell me why I am unable to mount this image and getting this error?

The image is is the right location and I have specified the correct image name. Are there any other files required in the folder of ImageX.exe?

F:\>imagex /mountrw c:\copyofpoc.wim 1 c:\mounted_images

you need to install this wim filter so that you can mount the wims and access them, if you have an older filter installed (pre RTM) reinstall the new filter from RTM and that should fix it

Thanks fizban.

I ended up working around my problem by installing WAIK but it is nice to know the reason for future reference
