GimageX in WinPE 5.0

I'm created a dual boot iso for x64/x86 using Windows ADK (winpe 5).  It works great.  What I'm trying to accomplish is to add the GimageX application, which I have done by copying it to the %systemdrive%\windows\system32\gimagex loacation.  I then edited the winpeshl.ini file to look like this:

[LaunchApps]
%systemdrive%\windows\system32\startnet.cmd
%systemdrive%\windows\system32\gimagex\x64\gimagex.exe

What I discovered by only haveing the gimagex.exe line is that when winpe boots into the gui, it ONLY loads gimagex and gives no option for a command prompt or any other options.  So I thought I would add the "startnet.cmd" line which runs a lot of network services and provides the user with a command line.  What happens is that startnet.cmd runs, pauses for a bit, disappears, and then gimagex pops up and that's the only thing running or accessible.

Is there a way to have both the command prompt so the user can map drives, and do other tasks and still have gimagex open automatically?  Thanks!

don't include gimagex in the launch apps.. and you will be left at a command prompt.

David,

Thanks for the reply.  I know that.  What I'm trying to do is have GimageX launch automatically when winpe loads so the user doesnt have to browse to it using the command line.  I'd like both the command prompt open and for GimageX to auto launch.  Is that possible?

edit:  or perhaps a menu list would work within the command prompt, ie, press "1" for command prompt, press "2" for gimagex, etc.

Thanks!

sure that would work ... actually gimagex can be in the root directory.. just place the batch file in your launch
