Hi Martin, I've found the files. They were in the image for windows folder in program files x86. The only one that isn't there is ifwlang.dll.

I've come across this drive letter swapping myself, I just went into the drives to see what was on the drive to see which one to use. When you identify the usb drive it matters not, just backup to that drive that contains the image for windows files.

Hi Martin, you may just have put your finger on the solution. I've burned and ran the basic win pe. I had a USB drive plugged in so that I could check that there would be USB support pre windows. All fine, but for one bizarre thing. In the drive list in computer on the win pe disk it shos windows as d, and my second drive as c. It's anyone's guess why it should swap drive letters like that. Any ideas?
 Other than for that it looks like a great solution.
              Thanks,
                   John.

Hi John

If you still want to use Image for Windows there is a solution, you posted last June/July info on Brian Smart's boot disk. I use the basic boot disk not the windows install one. From the boot you can navigate to your USB drive
Image for Windows supports being run as a stand-alone (portable) app. You would just need to copy the following files to the USB drive and then run imagew.exe after booting to your WinPE boot disk.

imagew.exe
cdboot.f35
cdboot.ifd
ifw.ini
ifwlang.dll (if it exists)
imagew.ini (should contain your license key)

The imagew.ini file contains your Image for Windows license key in the following format:
[License]
Key=John Smith 000000-111111-222222-333333-444444-555555-666666-777777-888888-999999

After copying the file to the USB drive and adding your license information, make sure to mark the file as READ-ONLY (skipping this will result in needing to enter your key each time you run IFW after a reboot).



Hope this helps

Martin
