Hello all,

This is the first time i have used vistape, and i think that its probally a simple error on my behalf, but whenever i press play i get this error: Attached File  log_20090514_094357.html   10.45KB   299 downloads. I am trying to build this vistape from a vista DVD and to an iso image. Help would be much apreciated.

I think you are pressing the wrong play button. There is the main one ( Blue button ) and the one on each script ( Green button ) . The script level play button just runs one script instead of the project. Its the Blue play button next to Tools you should press to run the project.

WAIK is not mandatory, but recomended

if WAIK is not installed and don't want to install
do this:
open a command window
navigate to the folder '\Projects\Tools'
and use the command:
'WimUtil.exe install'

I don't know but maybe you have to "point" to the
Waik-folder? Have a look at the pic...

Yup, it points to WAIK. I have tried this on my laptop, my computer and my family computer and i got this error. The computers have vista ultimate and the laptop has vista home premium. I tried this on my friends laptop which has vista basic and it worked, but i didnt have enough time to finish building it and i cant see my friend for a while. Any ideas? Thanks.

Reading the posts in this forum seems to me:
on Vista host need to disable UAC ,
run winbuilder elevated ('Run as administrator'),
also try to copy the content of Vista DVD to a folder on yor HDD
and point to this folder as 'Source Paths' instead of the DVD drive,
don't use spaces in path and in folder names

Also are you running vista x86 or x64. Its much harder to get vistape to build on the x64 version.
