My LiveXP image is working perfectly, that is, until I realized I needed to install the Checkpoint Dynamic Mount Utility to the image. At first I tried to manually create the script to install the utility. I think I got half of the way there, the DMU launched within the LiveXP image without any problems with the exception that LiveXp would not recognize any hard drives once it was booted. By searching the forum, I discovered that Checkpoint has a utility to add the DMU to an already created *.wim file. I thought I was home free.

After a closer inspection of the created *.wim file, I noticed that the files for livexp are included in a folder called “1” ; which is why the file cannot be mounted by ImageX (although it works perfectly).
Is there a way to create a proper *.wim file structure with Winbuilder. I have been using Wimboot for some time and this is the first time have tried to mount the created *.wim file fir Imagex. Or should I be using another utility.

Please let me know any thoughts on this

The "1" is ok. It defines the index of (maybe contained multiple) image.
Did you define the index when mounting with ImageX?

Yes, i did, the image was not able to mount. the exact error was as follows


ImageX Tool for Windows
Copyright © Microsoft Corp. All rights reserved.


Mounting (RW): [y:\c\temp\livexp.wim, 1] ->
[y:\c\temp\1]
Error mounting image (RW):
The request is not supported.


I even tried GUImagex, an that also failed.

i used this one, Y:CTemp>imagex /mountrw y:ctemplivexp.wim 1 y:ctemp1

Is C:Program FilesWindows AIKtoolsx86 in the path environment?

2011-10-11 09:10:39 Found ImageX.exe: C:Program FilesWindows AIKtoolsx86imagex.exe
2011-10-11 09:10:39 Read line from INI file ImageX=Y:CProgram FilesWindows AIKToolsx86Imagex.exe

What about missing back slash behind x86?

I will double check on whether it is in the enviroment, but it should since it was an instllation from windows aik. and everything else works.

the "\" on the x86 was a typo.

After many tries today, it appear that not all version of imagex.exe bahave the same. was able to use one from a previous version of the windows AIK.

I was able run the checkpoin utility without errors, but it sill did not worked. will keep trying.

You never told us the version of
  • Your current OS
  • Installed WAIK
If your installed OS is Win7 SP1, it (as told) does not work with any "foreign" WAIK
In every other cases the "Vista WAIK" (6.1.7600) is known as working well.
