Hi everybody,

I was going to extract a file from a WIM image but then I got this error:
Code:
ImageX Tool for Windows
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp. All rights reserved.

Mounting: [C:\Users\Tilka\Desktop\temp.wim, 1] -> [C:\Users\Tilka\Desktop\Temp].
..

[ 100% ] Mounting progress

Error mounting image.




The parameter is incorrect.

The command line is:
Code:
imagex /mount "C:\Users\Tilka\Desktop\temp.wim" 1 "C:\Users\Tilka\Desktop\Temp"

Does anyone know what this error means and how I could resolve it? It's kind of irritating as the error occurs after the progress ends at 100%. :?

Is it your own image or one that you downloaded? I just had a look around and it seems you need to open it in the WDS console and export it (right click -> export) before you can edit it if it's one you've made yourself, because of the way the WIM format works.

Check http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserversetup/thread/917e3f84-df42-49ba-963e-a5d21b6c14df/ for more info. Good luck!

No, it's the one inside bootres.dll (from Windows 7 build 7057). The ImageX version I got is from Windows 7 Beta AIK. Maybe they changed the WIM format during those 57 builds? Wait a moment... if my ImageX is only compatible with 7000-WIMs I could mount install.wim from the beta and extract bootres.dll. :D Well, if it doesn't work, does anyone still have the bootres.dll from build 7000?

You still can extract it with 7-zip.

Thanks a lot! It's quite handy: 7-Zip shows each image in a separate folder and the meta data in an XML file. :D
