I checked, i think all Vista/Win7 projects and all require WAIK, no matter what. How come?
Vista and Win7 can be installed without needing any WAIK, also LiveXP has wim support without needing WAIK, as far as i know.

Simply because they all make use of the wim filter driver and imagex.

As on boot-land is not allow to share 1 Mb MS files, everyone is forced to load and install GBytes of mostly unnecessary stuff. :cheers:

nativeex.w07.net/win7
doesn't need WAIK
it extracts wimgapi.dll from the Windows 7 install DVD
and uses its own tool WimCaptEx.exe
http://nativeex.boot...x/WimCaptEx.htm

edit:
psc said here:
if no mount is made only the wimgapi.dll is needed

Thanks dera, didn't try Peters project, because i wrongly understood it as an add on to Win7rescuePE.
Will give it a try too.

It is an addon to win7rescuepe. It has links to files in that project which must have been previously downloaded.

That is wrong! It is not an addon to especially Win7RescuePE .

nativeEx_win7 can link to any suited (win7 source CD) project, to add its apps, drivers, etc.
It even theoretically can link to more than 1 project.

I choose Win7RescuePE because for me it seemed to be the project with the best background and a good future.

How to link to ANY project from nativeEx_win7:

[main]

title=nativeEx_Win7

Download_Level=0

Version=1

Selected=True

Date=2009-Apr-27



[Links]

Projects\Win7RescuePE\Addons

Projects\Win7RescuePE\Apps

Projects\Win7RescuePE\Net

Projects\Win7RescuePE\Temp

Projects\Win7RescuePE\Tweaks

Projects\Win7RescuePE\Shell

But i don't have to link, i can also copy in what i like, to make it a full project, if i understand right?

btw. Would nativeEx_win7 even produce a bootable OS, if not linked to another Win7 project?
