Ok, so I downloaded the PENetwork from Holger's site (- PENetwork for VistaPE / Win7PE (v05 Beta) (495 KB zipped) - Script for WinBuilder 076/077) and I have downloaded VistaPE in Winbuilder 078 SP 4, and I add the script in there, I disable the PENetCFG since I figured you don't need it with PENetwork. When I load the ISO in VirtualBox, I see PENetwork on the desktop, but when I double click it nothing ever happens, what am I doing wrong?

That may not matter - especially since you have managed to create VistaPE and boot to it's desktop. I've seen worse!

There are some restrictions, which may not be at all relevant to VistaPE, depending on what tools are used to build it. "Deployment Tools Supported Platforms"

Regarding the PENetwork issue. Which shell - explorer, BSExplorer, etc? Is it only a problem with the desktop icon? Is there a start-menu item for it? Can you locate the actual program and start it directly? Or is it totally dead?

Regards :)

i think it is a bug in the script at the lines #38-39 regarding the %SysType% variable,
the %SysType% indicate the type of the host OS, i.e. you build on x86 OS or you build on x64 OS.
VistaPE doesn't support x64 source
only x86 source supported,
so with VistaPE CAPI you cannot build an x64 PE
and in VistaPE there is no variable for indicate the source type
(or at least in the file 'project.ini' the source type is not indicated)
.

maybe this will work:
comment out lines #38-39 and simply write:
//If,%SysType%,Equal,"x86",Set,#2,PENetwork.7z

//If,ExistFile,"%ScriptDir%\PENetwork_x64.7z",If,%SysType%,NotEqual,"x86",Set,#2,PENetwork_x64.7z

Set,#2,PENetwork.7z

Edit:
in VistaPE-CAPI for indicate the source type the variable: %SourceArch% used
so
If,%SourceArch%,Equal,"x86",Set,#2,PENetwork.7z
If,%SourceArch%,NotEqual,"x86",Set,#2,PENetwork_x64.7z

it depends only on your personal preference,
but you can include both in your build,
there is no conflict with each other
