Script for Winbuilder 082 to add Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 Professional. Requires files from Paragon HDM 15 Recovery Media. Create the Paragon Recovery Boot Media first, using their Boot Media Builder. Then copy the files from the Paragon Software folder in the resulting ISO image to a folder.
Please note that there is a bug in the full scale launcher where it loads the boot configuration data hive into the registry and then complains that the boot disk (usually C) is locked. I provided a batch file to unload the boot configuration data registry hive. The batch file must be used AFTER starting the full scale launcher for the partition manager. The batch file may be used without harm any time that the program complains about not having exclusive access to a disk drive. If I find a batter work around I will update the project script.
The hotcore driver is included, although that driver should not be required in most cases. Your Windows PE should include the Volume Shadow Service, and you will probably not back up the ram drive running the PE OS. Also, you must still have exclusive access to restore a partition. VSS and hotcore are only useful to back up in-use partitions.
The Universal Image Mounter that mounts a virtual disk as a drive letter is not supported in the Windows PE environment. It is possible to mount virtual disk images within the program but not as a normal Windows disk drive letter. Use the file transfer wizard rather than Windows Explorer to transfer files out of a virtual disk image.
Finaly, I want to express my thanks to Arvy who created the script for Hard Disk Manager 12, that I used as a basis for creating this script.
