I'm running Windows PE version 6.3.9600.16384. it's a Windows 8 PE boot image part of SCCM 2012. I'm trying to find out if I'm able to build and run a simple VB.net application in the Windows PE environment. I've added the Optional Components (Image Attached) to the boot image.

According to MS Technet, the description is as follows:

WinPE-NetFX contains a subset of the .NET Framework 4.5 that is designed for client applications.

Not all Windows binaries are present in Windows PE, and therefore not all Windows APIs are present or usable. Due to the limited API set, the following .NET Framework features have no or reduced functionality in Windows PE:
 Windows Runtime

 .NET Framework Fusion APIs

 Windows Control Library event logging

 .NET Framework COM Interoperability

 .NET Framework Cryptography Model


Dependencies: Install WinPE-WMI before you install WinPE-NetFX.


Hence the answer must be yes, if you compiled with 4.5 and keep it simple.
