Features

GImageX allows you do perform the most common WIM operations from an easy to use interface. Including:

  • Capture a WIM image
  • Apply a WIM image
  • Split a WIM image. Used to split a WIM into 4GB chunks to fit on FAT32 partitions for UEFI deployments
  • Retrieve image information and detailed XML information
  • Mount an image from a WIM
  • Export images from a WIM
  • Delete images from a WIM

Installation and Operating System Support

GImageX will run on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 (including the WinPE versions based on these operating systems). Simply run the gimagex.exe or gimagex_x64.exe file as required for your 32-bit or 64-bit architecture. GImageX is a native win32 application and does not require any external runtimes or frameworks.

GImageX should function on Windows XP but will require installation of the WIMGAPI dlls from a copy of the Windows Automated Deployment Kit (Windows ADK). Details are in the help file. This configuration is untested and Windows 7 is recommended instead.
