Hello,

I would like to create a little interface to select a few options through buttons, comboboxes, checkboxes, read some register values and then call some .CMD scripts with those options. I can do it easily on VB.NET, but, as far as I know, I can't use .NET fw on winpe.

Any recommendation?

Thanks :D

It seems like a work for Auto-it.... :dubbio:

Possibly (but it would depend on the HTML engine and settings) a HTA would do as well.

Another option that is often neglected is - when a sequence of settings is required - to use an "installer" engine, such as (example) NSIS:
http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page

At the very basic level there is the Wizard's Apprentice that - within limits - can do what you describe:

I think at least wimb's builder support dotnet, but it may be a bit much to add just to get a few buttons and checkboxes running.

I think at least wimb's builder support dotnet, but it is definetely way too much crap to add just to get a few buttons and checkboxes running.

I thought so... :)

I'm reading about AutoIT, which pretty much does what I want, but I still need to see if it can read from register values. Otherwise, I'll do through REG QUERY and scripting (as always...)

Thanks to everyone!

It supports lots of stuff, including registry. Read the documentation.

Which kind of a PE are you talking about? In addition to all the fine comments already made, there *IS* a .net script on the Win7PE_SE project. I can't vouch for it myself - haven't had the need to use any .net tools. BUT, it is there...

So, bottom line, there are MANY ways to approach this issue!

Thanks again to everyone. In the end I'll be needing .net for Driver Backup

NO actual recommendation, as YMMV, but maybe some ideas:
