Do CTMAG left the project? I just did a search for his posts and it seems his last post was January 30 this year. :)

What happened to him?

And any news about Nightman and a possible new VistaPE RC candidate? :)

ctmag is a professional newspaper editor, working here for a while, to create an article for the German C'T magazine.
And he did a good job here. I think at least 15 different features I implemented into WinBuilder following his suggestions.

If you want, I can e-mail him to contact the forum again.

Nightman due to the forum: My personal opinion: ???

Maybe you concentrate on the new Win7PE project by YahooUK

I think there is actually a chance that Nightman is already working on W7pe.

Yep, and there is also a chance that waiting for nightman will end up with the same sad results as presently seen for a VistaPE dependent on a single person. This oughta teach us a lesson for the future.

Win7PE development has already started and it's being improved by a lot of people here in the community.

This is the default project for the NT7 platform. A project where our combined skills can be focused to help creating a solid project.

Here is a good showcase of this spirit:

boot land is all about working as a community.

However Yahoouk removed the project from his server due to concerns about licensing issues with some of the files in his download.

My view on that is that vista or later based projects should state what the prerequisites are and require that they are installed prior to the build. The projects should then either run the licensed programs directly from the install directory or provide a setup script that copies them to the project sub-tree.

OT, but not much :(, is the word "subavaliação" the correct Portuguese translation for "understatement"? :) :)

It's possible thought not intentional.. :)

An example of understatment in english:

An Army officer has just lost his leg. When asked how he feels, he looks down at his bloody stump and responds, "Stings a bit."

http://en.wikipedia..../Understatement

And on this specific case:

a ) Adding some instructions regarding how to legally install the WAIK on the first topic of Win7PE
b ) Add native WIM support to winbuilder.exe and make a) unnecessary.

What does adding wim support to winbuilder mean? Just having the option to create a wim from a directory structure? Or will you be providing a driver to mount a wim to a directory?

The WinBuilder Development Team is currently working on raw read and write *.WIM files.
And RAW means: Also not using wimgapi.dll. :D

WB internally reads and edits a file *.WIM.
Maybe WB internally mounts and handles like a drive, maybe it does some voodoo or magic procedures. The 'outer world' is not affected with that.

Anywhere I already mentioned that the WIM functions will be the highlight of WinBuilder 080.
