asked on

Windows PE and .NET applications or ANY PE if applicable

I need to create a Windows PE 3.0 disc. I've been able to do so with with the WAIK, but I need to use a .NET application with it.

I've searched for what seems like hours and cannot come up with a free option to accomplish this. There are some applications that will basically add the component of the framework to my executable, but they're cost is in the thousands.

Or... if there is a way to do the same with a Linux bootable disc + the monoframework, that might work. But then again, I guess I'd have to use a VM in someway....

Basically, what I'm doing is creating an app that runs several CMD apps in succession and I need a way to do this in the OS and via a PE of some sort.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

CT,

Could you clarify a little bit on how this could help my situation?

I looked at your link, but it seems it just converts batch files to executables. I'm not using any batch files and my application is made in VB.NET. Not VBS or a batch file.

Thanks for the help guys. It seems if I want to get this to work, I'll have to use an antiquated method. Or... one of the links pointed towards just using VistaPE via winbuilder.

I was hoping to use my own build, but I may be able to customize that one.

Thanks for the info!
