    Your app have the "wimmount.sys" dependency (via PM);

    You can use other Windows 8 modules to work with it, or try use the wimmount.sys Win7 file in Windows 8..........

    Tryed but doe'nt work.... It keeps on asking.... for the file

    My app looks for the file in system here is the code

    Code:
            If Not File.Exists((Environment.GetFolderPath(SpecialFolder.System) & "\drivers\wimmount.sys")) Then
                MsgBox("Please download WAIK for Windows 7", MsgBoxStyle.Exclamation, Me.ProductName)
                Me.Close()
            End If
    And when the app runs it says Please download WAIK for Windows 7 which means it does not find that file in the system... There is some kind of crazy problem

    You can integrate this file, and copy this for the directory using the resources.....

    Or import in the project for work directly in the code.

    Everything is fine under Windows 7 x64 as well as with x86 but... unable to make it work under win 8. What did u mean by import in the project for work directly in the code ? In Windows 8 the file wimmount.sys is already present ! So where is my app missing its point...

    The wimmount.sys file in Windows 8 is not the same (version) as in Windows 7.

    Your app depends on the SYS W7 File for import functions to work directly with the code?

    Or depends on the file for work with other your app functions?
