It's starting the service. ... :lol:

But not mounting the image. ... :thumbup:

I might try increasing the ScratchSpace in RAM from 32 to 512MB.

Correction: That WimFltr Service was started by my startnet.cmd... I inadvertantly had GImageX selected to add to the build...

This time, just Wim-Mounter-PE, and...

[attachment=5043:WimMPE2.png]

Sorry to disappoint... next time I'll start the Service, and have 256MB (limit in my current project) ScratchSpace, just to see if it can mount.

Regards :lol:

one to install the wimfltr with the xp way, and one for the vista way.

so if you can test which way works, by checking that service after pressing the button, please do :lol:

i will upload the new version in 10 minutes ok?

Something weird here.

I had the WimFltr Service started, and tried to mount with Wim Mounter... error!

So started GImageX, and tried to mount to the 'Wim Mounter\mount\' folder... wasn't really looking at the interface. Error: the image file is in use! Had a look at the interface and down the bottom it said image was already mounted in 'Wim Mounter\mount\'. ? Looked in the folder with FreeCommander... nothing there! Back to GImageX - unmount: no error. Mount it again: no error. In FreeCommander - still nothing there! Unmount. Mount on C:\mount. FreeCommander: Yes, it's all there....

What's going on?

thats very strange man. any way to see if there's a readonly thing set or something?

new version uploaded, with that two buttons, and a output file that is in the same dir as wim mounter.

so please check which way installs the wimfilter, and screenshot the outputfile contents for me ok?

Damian666

p.s, the output file is filled after the mounting of the image...
if it works or not...

p.s.2 why do you test this if you use gimagex?

The Vista way...

CMD: net start wimfltr - invalid. Wim-Mounter-PE: Vista way... Error. Click OK. CMD: net start wimfltr - invalid. Try Vista way again - error... screenshot.

[attachment=5049:wimMV.png]


Reboot. The XP way...

[attachment=5051:WimMXP.png]

Same as above except 'CMD: net start wimfltr' was able to start it. Note that it wasn't already started because it would have said so.


Hey! I use diddy's CMD-line imagex menus as well!

Be nice to have suite of tools! :lol:

I can't find any output file after trying to mount the XP way.

Did you say it should output whether or not it mounts successfully? Name and other possible location?

Machine's just about ready for a major defrag...

That error 'Image is not mounted...' is still there. imagex.exe is saying that it is mounted RW in your folder, but I just can't see it, and neither can your program... is that why it gives that error?

Maybe someone can give it a go on NightMan's VistaPE... ther's a bit more Vista OS in it.

You know what I like about this Program... two buttons and a drop-down and I'm looking at the files in the image I want (not yet in WinPE :lol: ...). With GImageX, two tabs, three buttons... and I still don't even know which image index I need.

I'll play around with it, see if I can find out anything.

Good Luck...

yes, thats why the error appears.
the program is checking the existence of the windows folder.
that should be there right?
or am i mistaken?

well, at least thanx for the help.
And trust me man, if its possible, we WILL get it to work :lol:

good night

btw, i just looked up our posts, and the fact that the wimfltr is found with the xp way,
indicates that the way to install it is on the XP way.
so that is fixed, now i could always try to change the mount folder to x:\mount.
which you say works, care for 1 more try?

Let me know man :lol:

Yep. 'Windows\'. That's the root of WinPE on the left-hand side, mounted on the HDD without a problem.

I'm fairly sure it would work with hardcoded 'c:\...' in most cases. WinPE assigns drive letters in the 'default order', so 'c:\' will normally be on a hard drive. However, it can also boot without any hard drive...

Some portable programs, like portable Web Browsers that are designed to run off a CD, can write to specific Temporary directories on HDD.

If you can't mount to x:\, then c:\ would be second best. If you feel like making a hardcode one I'll try it out on the VirtualPC. At least you got the WimFltr Service Starting. It took me a while to figure out that the 'XP way' only installed it, and the 'Mount' button actually started it ... :thumbup: ... now you can combine the two.
