Hi when your making your winpe image I would mount the boot.wim within sources and add the files there in system32 so that you do not have to do the full path for imagex.

The intclg.exe is in my windows aik\tools\x86\intclg.exe

This is just a wrapper dont forget the cmd will be displayed at the bottom of the gui if you cant run the cmd by the cmd then its not going to work in the gui

I did copy to my Flash Drive Folder from my windows aik\tools\x86\intclg.exe hoping it would cause the
GUI to execute ok but I still get a dialog box that appears to be missing headings for the entries to be filled in with
Drive to capture and Backup location and description. When I click on the "Capture WIM Image button" Nothing Happens. Oh Well !!! I must be missing something. I've used ImageX command line out of this Flash Drive folder
as it is and it works fine. I wanted to try this GUI because it really speeds up the process of getting things started and
eliminating my "Fat Finger" mistakes. My command line is pretty long.
"G:\Imagex GUI\imagex.exe" /config "G:\Imagex GUI\Skipmore.ini" /COMPRESS maximum /capture C: "D:\Images-WIM4-24-2007 Data C-Image.WIM" "04-24-2007 Data C-Image.WIM"

I'll watch the forum some more and maybe these old eyes will see the errors of my ways !!!!
Thanks

Basically what be nice is a standard gui with all the options that has a progress bar and will work in winpe 2005 and winpe 2.

Maybe I should bin the vb stuff and just code in c++

You inspired me to do this, and I have just finished my project.

I have written a program called WIMMaster which gives a graphical interface to the Wimgapi library. I wrote the program in C using Visual Studio 2005. It is similar in looks to OnDansWIM, but is quite different below the surface.

I was able to get the progress bar going for Capture/Append and Export, but had no success with Apply. The reason for this is that the WIMApplyImage function in wimgapi apparently spawns a separate thread for its work, and somehow this blocks the communication needed to run the progress bar. I used a modeless dialog instead to indicate that something was going on.

I have a file which contains all my source code, and also a BartPE plugin and a VistaPE script with all the files encoded into it, except for wimgapi.dll and wimfltr.sys which are of course required for both the plugin and the script. My file is too big to upload here, although it is not all that large. It is available for download here.

Anyone wishing to use the source code will need the Wimgapi SDK which comes with the WAIK, and also Visual Studio 2005. Visual Studio 2003 seemed to have problems reading wimgapi.h, because of all the __in, __out and other similar descriptors it uses.

A number of interesting points arise in the source code. One of them is that the use of a file name for an image is not mandatory as it is with imagex, although it obviously makes sense to have one in a multi-image file. It is actually quite complicated to get the names and descriptions into the wim; I had to write a special function to edit the image to achieve this.

I hope that some will find the coding instructive, and the program useful. It seems to work as well as imagex does.

If you're having the problem of nothing happening, are you sure your wimfltr service is started?

Try the following before trying to capture in command prompt:

net start wimfltr
This will start the wimfltr service necessary for imagex.

Hello,

can I ask you some Questions please.
How does you created this form? Can I use visual Studio express and what do you have to put on the CD to run self builded programs?
Or is there an other way to create a gui? I have created some vbscripts which then I have to port to visual Studio VB ...

Thanks for your help...

How can I get this thing to work in WinPE? No matter what I do, it will not start up when I boot to a WinPE CD. What are the prerequisites?

Hi,
Based on MS ImageX driver and Imagex GUI I compile portable application. For me it works perfect. Size is 784 kB.
