multiPE is the first WinBuilder project which builds a PE from XP, Win2003, Vista, Win7 sources.
Currently only x86 sources are supported. From history, x64 source use is included in some scripts and perhaps may work. But full support of x64 is not intended for the near future.
x64 PEs do not offer remarkable advantages compared with x86 PEs (Which PE adresses more than 3 GB of memory?).
And they do not run on older 32-bit hardware.
Win8 is not taken into account as source. For me is is not suited to build a working rescue PE. And multiPE does not claim to build a light-weight Windows OS.
The project has three main parts:
- Building the core. Depending on the source, fundamental files and registry entries are added to the target.
- Adding custom apps and drivers
- Building the final PE with PEFactory, either as single boot or as part of a multiboot media.
boot media is optionally ISO (CD / DVD) or UFD
Several 'Speed Up Functions' are new developed for the multiPE project. Revolutionary is the 'RamTarget' functionality. A small PE3 including internet access can be built in less than one minute (On my system in 40 seconds).
multiPE is one of the very few projects which support the standard WinBuilder 'Certificate' functionality. That helps the user to proof whether the used scripts are 'from author'.
Server for single script downloads with WinBuilder's Download Center: http://multipe.exec-se.de/
You should use the download center after a download of the whole project.
Maybe in the mean time some fixes / addons are added to the project.
Caution: To upgrade to a newer version, never use the "single file download of all files". In a new version sometimes structures / folder trees etc. are changed, and a single file upgrade can destroy the structures.
To upgrade to a new version, only use the download offered here, and download into an empty directory.
This page's internal download links for older versions do not work.
Older versions you can download from http://multipe.exec-se.de/Complete/
Actual (living) documentation: http://multipe.exec-...ltiPE/index.htm
The package contains WinBuilder 083, a slightly modified clone of the official WinBuilder 082.
Do never use WinBuilder 083 for other projects. It cannot be guaranteed that it works and does not cause any harm.
