Install the Windows Image File System Filter Driver (Standard 7 SP1)

7/8/2014

To mount an image by using ImageX, you must first install the Windows Image File System Filter (WIM FS Filter) driver. By default, this driver is installed with Windows Embedded Standard 7 Toolkit, but if you want to run ImageX on a computer without Standard 7 Toolkit, you can install the driver separately.

This guide assumes that you have a basic familiarity with ImageX.

  1. Insert your Standard 7 installation disk and browse to the following location: <dvd_drive>:\Windows Embedded Studio\ Windows Embedded Standard 7\Tools\<architecture>.

  2. Right-click the Wimmount.inf file and then click Install. This installs the driver to the Windows\System32\Drivers folder.

  3. Copy Wimserv.exe to the Windows\System32 folder.

  1. On the Standard 7 installation disk or a computer where you installed Standard 7 Toolkit, locate the files Wimmount.sys, Wimmount.inf, and Wimserv.exe and then copy them to the target computer.

  2. Right-click the Wimmount.inf file and then click Install. This installs the driver to the Windows\System32\Drivers folder.

  3. Copy Wimserv.exe to the Windows\System32 folder.
