ImageX Double-click and Right-click Mount Scripts

1 post in this topic

I have created a file type for ImageX files (.wim) such that when you double-click, you can get it to mount read-only, read-write automatically or to display info. Here are the registry entries that put a right-click command for Info, Mount read-only, and Mount RW. It runs the respective scripts which are available for download here:

imagex_mountrw.cmd imagex_mountro.cmd imagex_info.cmd

You need setx.exe command for it to work.

Double-click wim image for info.

Right-click --> Mount to mount image as read-only. Do again to unmount. If setx variable gets messed up, option to reset variable.

Right-click --> Mountrw to mount read-write. Do again to unmount and it will ask to commit or not.

(Any improvements are welcomed.
