WMI Issues under WinPE 4.0

5 posts in this topic

I am starting to work with the new WinPE 4.0 that must be used to support Windows 8 and am having issues with making WMI calls. I am getting the message "The subsystem needed to support the image type is not present." If I run the tool I created under Windows 8 it is working correctly.

I have added the following components to my WinPE build but seem to still be missing something:

winpe-wmi.cab

winpe-wmi_en-us.cab

winpe-hta.cab

winpe-hta_en-us.cab

winpe-scripting.cab

winpe-scripting_en-us.cab

winpe-MDAC.cab

winpe-MDAC_en-us.cab

Has anyone else started to use Winpe 4.0 for Win 8?

thanks

JD

Note: The tool is also working correctly under WinPE 3.0 which I also added the same components to my WinPE image.

I am using WinPE 4.0 and it works OK. I think you could check your build for the above mentioned packages using

Dism /image:c:winpe_x86mount /Get-Packages

If your able to see it, then try posting your script (or a snippet) and then we shall see what we can do.

Also, I suggest taking a look here: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/11980-wmi-in-winpe/

"The subsystem needed to support the image type is not present."

Your exe is the wrong architecture. WinPE does not support any sort of WOW, so if you are using x64 WinPE, your EXE needs to be compiled in x64. WinPE x86 can only run x86 binaries. This is also true of any DLLs or other support files you put into your WinPE.

Thanks Tripredacus. I just figured that out. I created my new WinPE 4.0 as 64bit but my utility is compiled for 32bit.

I appreciate everyone's help and suggestions.
