Some users want to add complete applications, packages data, etc. to the PE without writing new plugins.
An example may be a collection of SysInternals applications or the Depends tool.
These additions might be inside the WIM (running in RAM) or on the CD.
To add them is very easy:
- Create a folder <BaseDir>\lib\user_cd and / or <BaseDir>\lib\user_ram
- Put the applications you want into the according folder, depending on they should run from WIM or from CD.
During build these folders are copied to the target, and shortcuts to them are added on the desktop: A CD and a RAM icon.
When anywhen you do not want to add an user folder to a particular build, just create an empty file "nocopy" in this folder.
Next build you can remove "nocopy" and the folder is added again.
