ImageX with a GUI

by Mitch Tulloch [Published on 5 March 2008 / Last Updated on 5 March 2008]

How to get a GUI for the imagex.exe command.

Vista’s Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK) lets you capture and deploy Windows Image (WIM) files using the imagex.exe command. Unfortunately imagex.exe is a command-line utility whose syntax can be somewhat cryptic at times. Well, where there’s a UI, there’s a way, right? Check out this third-party tool which is currently under development, and keep your eye out for it once it’s finished and hosted somewhere for download.
