I used to have a Win8PE SE project with Acronis Backup&Recovery 11 in it. Now I created a Win81PE SE project and copied over the Acronis script, expecting that it would work just the same.
Well, basically it does, but the link to start it points towards an abr11.cmd file, which is created in the script as follows:
TXTAddLine,"%Target_prog%\%ProgramFolder%\abr11.cmd","net start mms","Append" TXTAddLine,"%Target_prog%\%ProgramFolder%\abr11.cmd","TrueImage_starter.exe","Append"
So the generated batch file looks like this:
net start mms TrueImage_starter.exe
This used to work nicely in Win8PE SE, but in my Win81PE SE, the program does not start. TrueImage_starter.exe does not seem to be doing anything (but it might do something that causes no visible output).
However, I find that I can start B&R 11 by simply executing TrueImage.exe instead of TrueImage_starter.exe?! For now, I have added a third line to the batch file:
But this appears to be just a workaround to me. If TrueImage was supposed to be started that way, then why does TrueImage_starter.exe exist in the first place? Is possibly some functionality not properly working if I start TrueImage.exe directly like this? (I have just completed the project, so I can tell that B&R 11 does start that way, but not whether it actually works properly in all respects.)
In this context, does anybody know the exact purpose of the TrueImage_starter.exe file? Why is it there when you can as well launch TrueImage.exe directly?
