How do I run Core Configurator 2.0 once it is installed?

Probably a dumb question, but how do I run Core Cofigurator once it is installed?

On a Windows Server 2008 R2 Core installation, I successfully installed Core Configurator 2.0 and examined the options. Then I restarted the server, and now I want to execute Core Configurator. It is nowhere to be found, and Google answers three thousand other questions regarding "core configurator" and "run"/"execute", but none of them is regarding executing the tool itself.

Any help much appreciated, naturally.

After installing CoreConfigurator (supplied as MSI package), navigate to the folder where it has been installed and execute CoreConfigurator.exe

Tip: you do not actually need to install the application. The 4 files in the program's folder can be copied and used on other Server Core computers without installing the application)

The Core Configurator comes as a cab file which has to be unpacked before the configurator can be run. To expand the cab archive run the following command:

expand CoreConfigurator.cab -f:*

The Windows 2008 Server Core Configurator can be run by executing Setup-Core.wsf afterwards.

Thanks for answering; but I installed it by executing the .wsf file on the ISO image I downloaded from www.codeplex.com. Afterwards there are no coreconfigurator.exe file on the server (I've run
dir core*.exe /S

Open in new window

for instance). Do you have a tip how I could the me hands on the msi?

There are only .ps1 files on the CD, aside of the Start_Coreconfig.wsf (and a .psd1 in \en-US) files on the ISO...?

Thank you, it worked! - It was not CC 2.0, which I was hoping for, but it was good enough. Thanks.
