    Yes this will work with both 32 & 64 bit windows 7 - Have a look at the documention as its imperative that you get the installation correct, test and feedback also

    Thanks

    Now, I am clueless! I tried it on many computer, both virtual and physical, in 32 and 64 bits, and I am unable to repeat your problem. Your only solution is to copy winRE by hand?

    It found it! *does a lil dance* I happened to do a "taskkill.exe /F /IM wmpnetwk.exe /T" prior though.. Right clicking on x64\English\Install.cmd and "Run as administrator"... *le sigh* Oh the joy :)

    The reason I think it was the problem was prior, the wmpnetwk.exe process would not be killed.. even though the cmd was blatantly there in the Batch file...

    Don't forget to recompile the AU3 file into EXE, in both 32 and 64 bits version. 32bits EXE file can not run under a 64bits Recovery Environment :(

    (OP)
    If you boot to the recovery environment and open a command prompt, can you do the following?

    Code:
    X:
    CD \
    CD SOURCES
    CD RECOVERY
    DIR *.EXE
    
    Is there any RECENV.EXE file there?
    If yes, is starting it by hand works?

    If yes, can you do the following?
    Code:
    MD W:\RECSET
    XCOPY R:\*SETTINGS.INI* /S W:\RECSET
    DIR R:\*.* /S /A >W:\RECSET\LIST.TXT
    
    And then, send me (zipped) the content of the RECSET folder on the WINDOWS drive?

    Thanks!

    Problem isn't the file not being there.. It was that it had no permission to read/execute... I'm at a loss as to why when everything's run as an Administrator.

    Hum, curious! Which antivirus?
    Are you using a legit (or at least official downloaded) copy of Windows 7? Maybe you copy was modified and got a virus?

    Don't know either.
    Are you able to give me the file attributes (ATTRIB) of the original winRE.wim file in C:\Windows\System32\Recovery\winre.WIM
    Can you also give me the file security (NTFS security) of the file?

    Thanks!

    oookey, need more clear instructions here :p..

    When entering audit mode (ctrl+shift+f3) a window pops up, exit or just leave it?
    After as you mentioned in the instructions.txt it boots into recovery console, but why? And what do to there?
    let it repair the problem it found doesnt work and neither does pressing no.

    Edit: When starting recovery.exe and choose create usbkey it says the drive has to be 0GB or larger. change that perhaps? :p

    Something wrong with your installation!

    1) Close the SYSPREP box each time it shows up
    2) Once installation completed, the computer reboot in the recovery environment and create a full backup then shutdown the computer (first time only)
    3) If it says 0gb, that means that the backup did not succed!
    4) Use the tool to reboot into the recovery environment (Launch recovery tool). Once there, start the file browser. You should have 3 drive letter, W, R and S. S is the boot loader, R is the recovery environment and W is your Windows partition. If you only have R and S and no W, you make a mistake configuring the 3 partitions during the setup process of Windows.

    1. Ok:)
    2. So i run install.exe (which runs install.cmd for my language and architecture, in my case 32bit english) and let it do the job..Hmm, although it havent made a backup when i tried 3 first times.... Im trying now so hold on..
    3. Well, after running the recovery media creator, i clicked create usbkey or whatever it says (either usb or dvd), it said it requires 0GB or more to copy the files to usbdrive hehe..
    4. I will try that..I have followed his directions to create all necessary partitions but ill try again. right now im in audit mode...in vmware.


    Note: I will ad mirrorlink for latest version:)

    Edit: Seems to work better now then earlier :p
    Edit2: Im an idiot hehe, im not using the final release but the first one.....
    Edit3: Now it seems to capture the image:)
