Great Tutorial Atari800xl, thanks  :thumbsup:

Well, you can include Gena as one of favorite PE, pe1 still many peoples favorite PE and Gena is The Only active one  :wink:,
 I know many Disk Imagers still works on Gena  :wink: also I know you only test and use with SE  :wink:
 .... (....further all tested by me on SE .. ;) )


Well Done  :smile:

It's not so much a Tutorial thread, but a combination of news (new releases) and some info on which files (drivers) have changed, etc. And of course links to existing scripts. Just trying to bring all those things together.

Sure  :thumbsup:

What I meant was exactly what you are wrote,
 What I ask, only add Gena to the list and mention further tested on SE,
  we know they mostly work or can work on Gena (tricky driver adding..), but most naturally not interested in ;)
   and I do not want you to work on this task too, you don't have to, please don't feel you oblige to,
    you are very more interested in SE, keep on   :thumbsup:
      only, do not exclude Gena's existance on such a nice topic  :cool:
       I also don't have time to work on such long tasks, maybe in future oscar   :great:

There is no doubt that disk imaging apps are the most widely used plugins on recovery discs. It's nice to see all of them in one place. Keep up the good job mate  :thumbsup:.

Some legacy apps will only work properly on PE 1. One particular example is "Victoria" (HDD diagnostics). Some of it's functions won't work in PE3/PE4 environments. Since disk diagnostic is one thing i have to do daily in my line of work, Gena is  Indispensable for me.

So, now I have Gena going again, I'm really interested in what Gena's unique "selling points" are. If you find the time, maybe you can share some details on which particular tasks only Gena (and Victoria) can do? Thanks!
(Kinda funny you mention disk related tasks, because I remember one of the reasons I left Gena behind [for a while] was that XP disk management had some trouble with my multiboot setup. I'd have to look up some notes to see what the exact problem was, but I'm sure you can tell me how Gena performs in that respect. Have you run into that problem as well? Do you use third party HD managers?)

Yes, there are known issues with "PE 1" disk management. You can delete partitions but you won't be able to create and format new ones. You will receive  some sort of error message which i don't exactly remember. Also WinXP by default doesn't have support for GPT disks ( there is a workaround by using "disk.sys" from 2003 server ).

As Lancelot said in http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=1143.msg13222#msg13222, use Server 2003 SP2 as source and disable "Small Core build" to enable full file copy. This will make "Disk management" fully working and improve compatibility with newer hardwares - including GPT disks. However i strongly recommend to use "Partition Wizard" for disk management functions as it is very reliable and feature rich in my opinion. I have did countless convert/resize operations with it and always worked like a charm.

"Victoria" requires direct access to the disk bypassing OS API. The driver which enables direct disk access is written at XP times and thus works fine on PE 1. All functions of Victoria including bad sector remapping fully functional on Gena. But on PE3 and 4/5, remap operation doesn't seems to work. I don't recommend to fix bad sectors and reuse a hard drive but just mentioned it as an example.

One other reason i still use Gena is it's small size. It fits nicely on a CD and boots fast.  I still encounters machines which doesn't have USB boot function in my line of work. Usually i use my Gena CD on that systems for repair and recovery.

What anshad means with Windows DiskManagement, MMC plugin was default selected false for such reasons ;)
I just update mmc to only disable diskmanagement  :wink: (to force using 3rd party ;))

all results from anshad here at reply 38 http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=526.msg10991#msg10991

As Lancelot said in http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=1143.msg13222#msg13222, use Server 2003 SP2 as source and disable "Small Core build" to enable full file copy.
well, maybe no need to disable "Small Core build" anymore !?!

I just update dps and add new dps nightlies, selected default,
during tests I figure out new dps nightlies packages need drivers by Removable Devices Combo (which also comes from big build !?!)

Now Gena default build see my harddrive out of box  :grin: :tongue: (small build, xp/2k3 , xp needs Gena\Drivers\4 Storage\GPTSupport XP 32bit (disk.sys)  )
 Thanks to dps guys  :cool:

one thing missed, I can not get usb sticks work, they need to be formatted  :grin: (big/small ,during boot, 2k3/sp, all result same)
 well, accessing harddrive has top priority, I can live with that  :cool:

ps: on dps plugin, when changing packages, since dps plugin uses latest dps .7z, there is now "delete dps path" ;) , will be improved later by Galapo to follow scrollbox....

maybe now Gena can get disk access to other modern devices like Atari800xl have ;) at least condition is better than old stable package  :cool:

further test results on Gena with latest dps nightlies better here http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=526

anyway, now Gena default back on Disk Imager game  :lol:

 well, accessing harddrive has top priority, I can live with that  :cool:
it was my fault,
after adding exfat plugin, usb sticks work  :thumbsup:
only a usb3 stick can not get drive letter automatically, MountStorPE fix that  :thumbsup:
   (mentioned before here http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=526.msg13252#msg13252 just re testet )
      I add MountStorePE to desktop as default  :wink: aside adding new device letters, it adds letters to hidden ones, very useful  :wink:

further dps nightlies integration to Gena finished  :thumbsup: All disks ok with my latest hardwares  :great:

Gena seems to continue some more years operational on new devices ...

See You

Hi Atari,
I just finished a couple of script thanks to the help of Lancelot and wanted to share. :thumbsup:
Introduction

This topic is mainly for announcing new versions of Disk imaging software ("imagers"), that can be built into your favorite PE (Using a "special" PE project from TheOven.org, of course).
It is also for sharing tips on where you can find ready-made scripts to do the work for you, and for going "behind the scenes" a bit, to see how those scripts actually work: which files are needed to make the imagers work in PE ("dependencies"), are extra drivers needed, what has changed between versions, etc.

- Terabyte Image for Windows (same)
Since the Plugin with File Container is larger I have posted a link to that file.  Just remember
put the Plugin with File Container with the script you are using in the same folder.  Something
like Projects\Win8.1SE\Apps\HD Tasks\Imaging\TeraByte.Script. The links are

Wow Mark, very impressive that you made these scripts after such a short time, you are a quick learner!
I haven't tried Ghost in ages, so I'm looking forward to testing it.

I think you'd better remove the links to the actual program files though (better use PM for that), because it's not allowed on the forum (ChrisR could get in trouble if the software companies find out).

About the file containers: Very nice work, I seem to remember I could set "Level=5" to scripts like this, to make them visible in the builder, after that I could extract the files. (Set level=5, start builder, select the now visible file container, click the tiny blue wrench, select "attachments" tab, use built-in extract).
But with your file container that doesn't seem to be possible. Maybe some extra lines are needed? I seem to recall some extra foldernames in [EncodedFolders] and [Folder]?

There is a way to extract the files without running though, I just commented out the "Call" line in the [Launch_Program] section. This way, the program files were also extracted to the project's "Temp" folder.

Again, this is great stuff, I hope you will find the time to create more nice stuff like this! Thank you again! :thumbsup:

Post by: Atari800xl on January 02, 2015, 09:44:05 PM
Mark, another special thanks for the Ghost script (and the files!) I've used Ghost a lot in "the old days", I guess from 2000-2005, I always used the 2,88mb image on a EasyBoot-multiboot CD, but I always had problems with it when I started to use Windows 7 and upward. Most of that might have been my own stupidity, but I could never get the bootsector stuff etc. right. That's when I started using the Acronis boot CD, which was quicker and easier for me. Still, I would have preferred to keep using Ghost, if only Ghost would have been a bit, well... better (we all know the stories...)

It was actually a lot of fun watching Ghost doing a backup right now, using my "new" Gena usb (new disk.sys etc.). It's a bit like going back in time for me, thanks for that nice trip... I was wondering: Do you still use Ghost with all new operating systems? Are there any special things to keep in mind?

EDIT: I was thinking a bit about your Terabyte Image script, the fact that you can't share the files, and the license key needed to make it run. Maybe you can make a new script, like others have done for Acronis/ Macrium etc, that takes the original download, then extract it, copy the needed files for PE, and add some GUI elements to add the license info?
The official download is here: http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/downloads/ifw_en_ifdgui_trial.exe
it's only a 14mb download and all files can be easily extracted with innounp.

Post by: Atari800xl on January 03, 2015, 12:10:00 AM
I just did a quick speed compare again, because I wanted to see how my latest additions performed in a simple test. As I've said in the intro, speed benchmarks are always tricky, because practical uses are different for everybody. I tested backups from a laptop (XP partition, around 4gb used including swap and hiberfil) to an external usb 2 harddisk. It seems the "new ones" have pretty decent performance...
Backup speed (lower is better): Acronis: 100%, Shadowprotect 116%, Aomei 130%, Ghost 136%, Active@ 173%, Paragon 200%, Macrium 226%, Terabyte 236%, Drive Snapshot 300% (normally [backup to internal disk?] much faster...)
Size: Drive Snapshot 97%, Acronis 100%, Terabyte 100%, Shadowprotect 105%, Paragon 111%, Active@ 114%, Ghost 114%, Aomei 168%, Macrium 206%

EDIT: Forgot to mention the restore times:
ShadowProtect: 88%, Acronis 100%, Drive Snapshot 144%, Terabyte 162%, Macrium 200%, Ghost 210%, Active@ 210%, Aomei 275%

So Shadowprotect and Ghost are doing a pretty decent job. Both are quite portable as well (Ghost is even "extremely" portable with just the 4mb exe), so nice additions...

Mark is new around, no need to force him do complex thing.


Better you create such a plugin,
 use provide file kind plugin, add a "License" and add a "Download" button to download and extract to provide file folder
  as a tip, at "PC Provide Files" check [Download_Files] and related sections
    result may demonstrate Mark a nice example. :thumbsup:

Thanks to a very nice tip from Anshad, I checked out LinhHonHuynhDe's "DLCD" boot CD, which has a very clever "portable" Acronis True Image version (no builder script needed for drivers). It is actually brilliantly simple, because he just makes all the .reg settings in a batch file prior to running TI, then starts the necessary services "by hand" and launches TI. I've always wondered if it could be this simple, and "feared" it wouldn't be, but as it turns out:
 :grin: IT IS!!!  :grin:

So I've done a lot of testing today, to make sure Acronis is working on Gena-32, W7pese-32, W8pese-64 and W8.1SE-PE64. This syswow64 and wow6432node stuff still has me confused every now and then, but I think I've got it all down correctly now, so I hope I can share the full "story" with you in the coming weeks. I tested these scenarios:
32bit TrueImage 2014 (builds 6673 and 6688) on 32bit PE
32bit TrueImage 2014 (builds 6673 and 6688) on 64bit PE
64bit TrueImage 2015 (build 6525) on 64bit PE

The (newer) 64bit TrueImage program files actually didn't work with the 32bit serial provided (well, not a 32bit serial per se, but a serial for the previous 32bit version), but luckily I had another one which worked just fine. So thanks again to Anshad and LinhHonHuynhDe, I hope LinhHonHuynhDe will allow me to share his batchfile here, he is a member of this forum.
Great stuff!! :thumbsup:

In a completely unrelated story, I had the opportunity to test Ghost32 12.0.0.6257 datecode 20140521.
(Of course, this is the "Corporate" series as in 6.5, 7, 8, not the "Consumer" versions, like 9, 10, 12, 15.)
:whisper: To be honest, I didn't even know there were Ghost (corp) versions this recent, just wanted to share the version info for those interested.
Nice going on the confusing "12" version, though...  :logik:

You seem to be a good searcher on net,

Maybe you can find a dps-x64 (or similar ;)) for Gena-x64

no idea about ghost32 12 except wiki ;)

Post by: Atari800xl on January 07, 2015, 10:33:30 AM
LinhHonHuynhDe told me it's alright to share his batchfile for starting the Acronis TrueImage services "on demand" (thus making Acronis "semi-portable!), so I can share the write-up I made if anyone's interested (if not, I will share it anyway).

I've tested his solution with
- Acronis TrueImage 2014 (which has 32bit program files) on 32bit PE, and
- Acronis 2015 (64bit program files) on 64bit PE.
I've tested with Gena, Win7PESE, Win8PESE and Win8.1SE, all working fine.
Of course, running 32bit 2014 on 64bit PE is also possible, but I feel that would confuse things for this topic, we can always discuss that later.

I want to thank Anshad and LinhHonHuynhDe again for this great tip!

For command line user ShadowProtect can be reduces to just 2 files.
SbRun.exe and stcsnap.dll (or stcsna64.dll if you use x64 version)

That makes ShadowProtect winning, with fastest restore time and smallest program size :grin:
Title: Re: Disk imagers in PE/SE: Basic build info - Comparison - News
Post by: Atari800xl on January 08, 2015, 09:08:59 AM
Thanks JFX, looks interesting. I did a quick search on sbrun.exe, but it looks it's not really easy to use? Do you use it yourself? Also, do you really think these two files are all you need? I read something about the command line tool needing the shadowprotect services?

I find all this stuff very interesting, but I will only write more about that great Acronis batchfile if anybody else is interested.

JFX, I would normally never ask, but since you replied to this Disk Imager thread, and told us yesterday you were "slightly bored": Have you ever played around with Aomei Backupper? It's driving me crazy  :lol:

I did some tests with it (32bit), and it's also "almost portable": You only need to copy a few files (that is: after the PE has booted) to system32 (ammntdrv.sys, ambakdrv.sys, amwrtsrv.sys) and start "LoadDrv.exe".
Problem is: this only works if I use this builder script:
Code: [Select]
RegHiveLoad,Tmp_Default,%RegDefault%
RegWrite,HKLM,0x0,"Tmp_Default\Software\AOMEI\AOMEI Backupper Standard Edition 2.2.0.0"
RegHiveUnLoad,Tmp_Default

RegWrite,HKLM,0x3,Tmp_Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion,ProgramData,be,1e,2f,f2,9e,6a,19,a6,1e,e2,3e,e2,ef,7b,18,b5,1d,d3,4d,d2,1c,9b,19,92,31,93,64,f6,5a,f0,61,92,2c,85,3f,80,56,eb,1b,ee,2a,97,9e,a4,89,a9,b5,51,b2,88,c8,df,d1,df,64,a9,21,d1,a1,b5,85,b9,71,d4,5c,41,8a,26,8e,45,01,2b,16,6a,b6,62,c6,6d,46,6e,15,5b
RegHiveUnLoad,Tmp_Software

RegHiveLoad,Tmp_System,%RegSystem%
RegWrite,HKLM,0x7,Tmp_System\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{71A27CDD-812A-11D0-BEC7-08002BE2092F},UpperFilters,ambakdrv

One of these seems to be the "magic" one (although I have NO IDEA which one, or WHY!!??), because if I leave out this script, it doesn't work, and I can't set these entries "on demand" (=after I boot the PE). Do you have any idea how to resolve this? (Would a nircmd "refresh" command or something help here, you think?)
If you never use Aomei (or don't intend to either), please forget about it, but I just HAD to ask! Thanks anyway!
Title: Re: Disk imagers in PE/SE: Basic build info - Comparison - News
Post by: JFX on January 08, 2015, 08:59:20 PM
Yes, I use ShadowProtect myself. The command line is a bit uneasy, but the GUI version display the command line for the used task.
So the only problem is that it want a volume name (the one you can get from mountvol.exe) and not a simple drive letter.

Actually the lack of command line support in Acronis pushed me to change to StorageCraft.

Not sure what's your problem with Aomei Backupper?
Works here, copied the 3 .sys in system32 and run Loaddrv.exe.

Loaddrv writes this UpperFilters value and Backupper the other 2.
What happens if you run the setup inside PE?

Post by: Atari800xl on January 09, 2015, 02:33:21 AM
Thanks for the great ShadowProtect tip, JFX!!! :thumbsup:

I only recently "discovered" this great program, and had not noticed the command line in the "details" view yet. Very nice, it really only needs the two files you mentioned, unbelievable!! 774 kb total... But then again, you're a master in tiny exe files as well (GetWAIKTools...) Thanks for the mountvol tip as well, it should be pretty easy to process the output of that. I guess it doesn't cover hidden volumes, but maybe I'll find a solution for that as well.

Thanks for looking into Aomei. I would really like to run this "portable" as well, but there are a few weird twists, it would be great it you could shed some light on that. As you said, you can just copy the 3 files, start LoadDrv.exe and start Backupper.exe, but if I don't use the builder script I mentioned: I'm getting the dreaded "Register" screen! (just tested it again on a "clean" Win7PESE-32): "The software has expired - Please copy the "Machine Code" below and the "License Code" you received when purchasing the program to ...etc."
:white_flag: This is the part that's driving me crazy.  :wacko:


Of course the script that ChrisR made works fine, so I always have that working version, but I just don't understand what is the "magic part". As I mentioned above, these seem to be the only three lines in the script that make the difference between working or not working (although I can't reproduce that in a normal "on-demand" scenario). I've also written to Aomei to ask why they use this check in a "Free" version at all!!! The drivers were a bit of a problem before (and still are in 64bit, but we can discuss that later), but now with the "copy files and start loaddrv.exe" method, this seems to be taken care of, so there's only that horrible "Expired" dialog that's driving me nuts...  :deadhorse:

Post by: Atari800xl on January 09, 2015, 03:01:18 AM
One more thanks: For the tip of installing Aomei in PE (never thought of that, not even for testing. Only used the ChrisR innounp method until now). Did that just now and it works. Now I'm still trying to figure out which setting/ file is the "magic" one, ie which setting I need to make in PE so I can use the portable program files in the next PE boot. (Must be amcore.dll?)

I copied the intalled files from x:\program files to a hard disk folder, then rebooted (to PE). Started backupper from the hd folder: worked... (Hmm, why? <g>). So this is without any reg settings at all. Makes me think it's amcore.dll after all. But please note, I *did* have an amcore.dll file in my previous tests.

Oh well, if this is really working, and keeps working, I will have to follow these steps in future: (1) Boot PE, install Aomei (2) Save the installed folder to HD (3) On next PE boot: copy 4 driver .sys files myself, start LoadDrv.exe (4) Start backupper.
At least this is giving me some new chances to test, so thanks again for your help.
BTW, have you also tried the 64bit PE files?


Title: Re: Disk imagers in PE/SE: Basic build info - Comparison - News
Post by: Atari800xl on January 09, 2015, 08:14:21 AM
Did a few more tries, and the method seems to work for now (32 bit program files only): (1) Run the installer in PE (so it doesn't modify your normal Windows) (2) Copy the program files folder (with AmCore.dll!) (3) Reboot your PE (4) This time, all you need is: copy the driver files, start LoadDrv.exe, run Backupper from saved files of step (2).

This only leaves the WinPE64 subfolder. Copying the 64bit drivers and starting the 64bit LoadDrv.exe is not enough. Any ideas? Of course, the 64bit program files can't be "installed" in the normal method, they just kind of "sit there" in the installer. (They *do* work with the ChrisR script, so it must be a "tiny" little thing...)

Where did you get 64bit LoadDrv.exe ? I haven't got one of those in Backupper.


Not sure why you are having difficulty.

I copy the 3 sys files to mount\system32 ( or Target\system32 - whatever you are using for that ), and the contents of the AOMEI\WINPE64 folder to mount\program files\aomei.

Thanks SIW2. You are talking about "building" stuff into the wim, *before* booting the PE, correct?

I was also talking about pure "on the fly"/ "portable" use of Aomei, just as a point of interest. As it seems so many of the current imagers can run (almost) completely portable/ on demand (even Acronis, with the LinhHon batch), I was just interested in how this could be done with Aomei.
I discovered by accident that on a running PE (no previous reg stuff done) all it needs is the 3 driver files, then a LoadDrv.exe, and the AmCore.dll file. Have you made any "discoveries" on AmCore.dll? Has it ever "expired" on you?
For running the 32-bit PE program files, there's a 32bit LoadDrv.exe (68kb) and a 64bit LoadDrv.exe (72kb).

For the 64bit  PE program files, there's no LoadDrv.exe it seems, using the 72kb LoadDrv.exe doesn't seem to work.

Thanks for any insights in this. Thanks JFX, for agreeing with me on the fact that it's strange that Aomei has a built in "License check" on their "Freeware" version....

Post by: Atari800xl on January 09, 2015, 09:45:24 AM
So the question is: Could the Aomei 64bit PE program files be used "on demand"? (As the 32bit files can, but they have LoadDrv.exe 32/64)
If I compare it with the Acronis batch method, and the script based stuff, maybe something like this?
- Boot your "clean" 64bit PE
- Copy the 4 64bit sys files to system32
- Load the reg file (like SIW2's version)
- Create and start the ambakdrv service "on the fly" (Is that even possible? It is with Acronis TI)
  Something like
  "sc create ambakdrv type= kernel start= demand binpath= "system32\ambakdrv.sys"
  net start ambakdrv
- Run the 64bit PE files.

Just trying to learn here...  :embarrassed:

Oh right, I never even posted that Acronis "drivers on demand" script by LinhHon.

To be clear: This can be run on a "running" PE, so this is making Acronis "Portable".

Yes, I use ShadowProtect myself. The command line is a bit uneasy, but the GUI version display the command line for the used task.
So the only problem is that it want a volume name (the one you can get from mountvol.exe) and not a simple drive letter.

Could you please share one of the SProtect cmd/scripts (as an example) ?

Thanks for your reply. I feel a solution can't be far...
So what we're trying to do here is have a "LoadDrv.exe"-type solution for Aomei64, to load the 64bit drivers for the 64bit PE files "on demand", without the need for a build script. (Just trying to be clear).

This is what I've tried so far: (1) Boot 64bit PE (2) Copy 64bit drivers to system32 (msahci.sys, ambakdrv.sys, ammntdrv.sys, amwrtdrv.sys) (3) Start SIW2's batch quoted above (replacing "PE_SYS" with "SYSTEM"
(4) sc create ambakdrv type= kernel start= demand binpath= "system32\ambakdrv.sys"
net start ambakdrv

This results in "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it".

Any more hints would be appreciated. Thanks!

You don't need msahci.sys. Not sure why it is there - maybe for pe2.

demand is start type 3
auto is start type 2

sc create ambakdrv  type= kernel start= auto binpath= "system32\ambakdrv.sys"
net start ambakdrv

Thanks SIW2. Getting closer all the time...
Same error though. Don't we need to create a service for the other sys file(s) [amwrtdrv, ammntdrv], like the Acronis batch file does? (Just throwing out ideas).
Thanks for your input!!
(Oh, and for anyone wondering what's the point: I'm just interested to learn where the exact differences are in starting these kinds of services "beforehand" [=in a script or modifying the wim by hand], and starting them on demand).
Title: Re: Disk imagers in PE/SE: Basic build info - Comparison - News
Post by: SIW2 on January 09, 2015, 09:26:47 PM
I wouldn't put msahci in, it is the win7 version. Win8 already has it ( so does 7 so no idea what it is doing there).

You don't need to start the other linked drivers. Backupper will do that as soon as you fire it up.

Don't worry about the message, it works perfectly. You can test by mounting an .adi image.

If you want to get really fancy, you can copy adi.ico to Program Files\aomei as well and it makes the .adi images look pretty.

Code: [Select]
Reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\AOMEI Backupper Backup File" /ve /t REG_SZ /d "AOMEI Backupper Backup File" /f
Reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\AOMEI Backupper Backup File\DefaultIcon" /ve /t REG_SZ /d "X:\Program Files\AOMEI\adi.ico" /f
Reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.adi" /ve /t REG_SZ /d "AOMEI Backupper Backup File" /f
Reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.afi" /ve /t REG_SZ /d "AOMEI Backupper Backup File" /f

Title: Re: Disk imagers in PE/SE: Basic build info - Comparison - News
Post by: Atari800xl on January 09, 2015, 09:50:32 PM
OK, so we should ignore the error?
I tried again: (1) Boot 64bit PE (2) Copy ambakdrv.sys, ammntdrv.sys, amwrtdrv.sys (3) Start your batch (4) sc create ambakdrv type= kernel start= demand binpath= "system32\ambakdrv.sys" (5) net start ambakdrv (6) ignore error (7) Start backupper.exe from WinPE64 folder (added amcode.dll before) (8) "The backup driver works improperly, etc.
Too bad, had already begun celebrating...  :lol:

You're using the WinPE64 program files from the installer, correct? Could you provide a file list, so I can compare?

You are right. I just checked again, and mounting works fine, but creating backup images depends on ambakdrv.

Loadrv.exe should be able to do it. I don't know what commands the installer gives it.

Aah, thanks for coming back to this. I was going slightly insane... :deadhorse:
Well. at least you know exactly what's the "issue" now, maybe someday we'll find out. Thanks for all your help so far.

EDIT: I've posted on the Aomei forum about this. I dropped a slight hint on the fact that other imagers are portable too, and why include the 64bit program files at all, if we can't use them in this "portable" fashion.  :tongue:

64 bit files are included so it can create 64 bit pe.

What you are trying to do was never the intention and is unsupported.

If I get a chance I may ask what the Ldrv commands are.

Post by: Atari800xl on January 11, 2015, 10:11:02 PM
Thanks again SIW2. Well, at least we learned that it's an "interesting" issue. Not only how we can get Acronis and Aomei (32bit version) to behave in a "portable" way, but also that there's a difference in loading/starting 64bit drivers for 32bit Aomei, and loading/starting 64bit drivers for 64bit Aomei.
And another issue is still the AmCore.dll "magic". I'm also very happy that JFX agrees that this whole thing should be dropped in a "free" version. I was reminded of this again when I put all my (working) portable 32bit Aomei stuff in an iso, and mounted that in PE (as I do with most apps). Once again, the "Unlicensed" thing reared its ugly head. Well, that's been discussed enough here already, so we'll just wait for Aomei's reaction to that. For now, I'll use those from a writable medium.

We can just stick to the working stuff now: (1) Builder script-based Aoemei (32/64, all working), (2) Builder script-based Acronis (all working), (3) Acronis portable (all working, if you find the correct 64bit drivers for 32bit Acronis 2014 yourself), (4) Aomei portable (32bit program files only, working on 32 and 64bit PE).

There was a nice reply to my questions from a moderator on the Aomei forum today:
Quote
I must say there are problems indeedly with Backupper if you want to run it in a third-party 64-bit WinPE, currently there are many relatively complicated operations needed to do if you want to add Backupper to WinPE yourself maunally.  We will release a PE edition of Backupper in the future.
The file AmCore.dll, we will modify it in future versions, please keep an eye on our updates. Thank you very much for your attention to our Backupper.

Some newsbits from the last week:
- I've been able to test the latest Macrium Pro version (5.3.7256 20141223, tested Free version only until now), as well as the latest ShadowProtect version (5.2.4.37298 20150105). No big changes in features or PE/SE related workings.

- Now that I'm testing the new Windows 10 build (9926), I might have found a solution for the Acronis "Analyzing partition" delays (sometimes 4 times 15 seconds during a restore operation, each time you have to select a drive or partition). Simply clearing the partition beforehand seems to do the trick. Must be some kind of "dirty bit" flag set in some cases. It's not the hiberboot thing, I always have that "off", must be something else we don't know yet. At least I might have found a workaround.

- Sidenote: WinNTSetup works great with the new build. I added NetFX3 to 9926's install.wim, after that a completely unattended setup with WinNTSetup (incl. the nice tweaks like disable setup animations etc). You can just use a 8.1 unattended.xml.
PostInstall also went OK (incl. ClassicShell), only thing that might interest some people: Don't use "DisableNotificationCenter=1" or the whole system tray will disappear (bug).

IFW 2.94

For Info
when you have the full Terabyte Image for Windows installed on your client, it has it's own PE Builder plugin installer,
which you run and point at your PE apps folder and it generates this script which has always worked  perfectly for me.
I appreciate you need the program installed in the first place, but the script might help somebody

Hi APT,

just looking codes, well it would never work "perfect" with win 8.1se/win8pe se with default builder settings,
 registry lines are wrong and should give error (depricated years ago) , some lines should not work, and some lines "ugly" (did not check)....

use Mark's plugin



@Mark,

Mark, you are faster than me,
I could not find topic of your plugin (I had in my folder), can you create one with
Contact=??????????????????????
pWebLabel2="Plugin Page",1,10,20,267,200,18,??????????????????????
 :wink:

things noticed:
at [Launch_Program] you can use
Call,HostOSArch
to launch x86/x64  :wink:
+
you can see some code examples wiith Utils\Provide Files - multiarch .......

I'd hate to disagree with a baker of your calibre  :worship: :worship:
but that is the exact script created by the IFW program direct  onto my Win81PESE and has worked many times in a real life backup and restore
never having had a single error  :confused:

Hi APT,

I believe, it is the success of application since it has a portable soul  :wink:
 as a result,
  plugin* they offer do not fully work ok, you can see errors/warnings about this plugin* (not application*) on builder log when you build,
  but since files copied correctly by that plugin, application* works following its portable soul  :wink:
   (maybe some options you do not use not work !!!! ;) , I don't use terabyte   :wink: )

shortly: plugin not fully ok - application ok since it is copied by that plugin


well, using Mark plugin would be better since:
 + it follows that plugin + adds .TBI assocation + adds x64 support + and probably other things   :thumbsup:

**
ps: you can test plugins by using green play button
See: FAQ http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=834.0
Q: How to use / test plugin after build ? (green play etc.)

and check log....

Active@ Disk Image for Windows
Version 7.0.2 - May 12, 2015
- Progress displayed on the TaskBar icon
- Scheduled Running task Progress can be monitored
- User interface & performance improvements
- Active@ Boot Disk switched to WinPE 5.1 64-bit (x64) base which performs faster & optimizes RAM usage

Had a chance to test Paragon Backup and Recovery Compact 10.1.25.348 20150519 (last one I used was 10.1.25.294 from 20140915). Don't know if the "compact" edition is new/ different?

I tested the way I normally do: Installed it, copied out the (72mb for x86) "program files\paragon software\hard disk manager 15 - backup and recovery compact\program" folder, added one more file (winscard.dll), rebooted in PE, could use the program in "portable" fashion. Commandline for imager (dont_eject prevents disappearing drive letters in some cases):

Code: [Select]
complexbackup.exe dont_eject

Seems to work nicely. As I said, no idea if something changed in this edition/ version. Is there a good changelog somewhere?

They use many of the same files from Active Disk Image in
Active Partition.  If you uncheck the box Partition in the script it will
not install the addition script.  Download link is below.  :thumbsup:

Introduction

This topic is mainly for announcing new versions of Disk imaging software ("imagers"), that can be built into your favorite PE (Using a "special" PE project from TheOven.org, of course).
It is also for sharing tips on where you can find ready-made scripts to do the work for you, and for going "behind the scenes" a bit, to see how those scripts actually work: which files are needed to make the imagers work in PE ("dependencies"), are extra drivers needed, what has changed between versions, etc.

Here's a list of my favorite imagers. The list might not be completely updated at this moment, but I will try to update it as frequently as I can:

- Acronis True Image (fast and creates small backup images)
- Terabyte Image for Windows (same)
- Macrium Reflect (slightly larger images, bit slower, but free and works great)
- Drive Snapshot (fast, small images)
- Aomei Backupper (free, fast)
- Storagecraft Shadowprotect
- Paragon Hard Disk Manager
- Active@ Disk Image (free)

Why so many? Because people often have picked their favorite already, so I'd like to keep the selection open to your own taste. Also, some are free, so you may want to test one of those as well. It's all about choice.

Current versions
(date coded YYYYMMDD)

- Acronis True Image 2015 18.0.0.6525 20141127
- Terabyte Image 2.93 20141217
- Macrium Reflect 5.3.7256 20141223
- Drive snapshot 1.43.0.17413/17414 20141215
- Aomei Backupper 2.2.0.0 201412224
- StorageCraft ShadowProtect 5.2.2.2 20141212
- Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 10.1.25.294 20140915 (*new version exists)
- Active@ Disk Image 6.0.3.0 20141020 (part of "Data Studio")

Comparison

Comparing imagers is very hard, because everybody uses them differently (backup to harddisk, usb3, usb2 or even DVD or CD).
I will make a backup of a small OS partition (XP) to an external USB2 external hard drive, which will hopefully give you some idea of how they perform. The size of the resulting backup can also be an indication of their porformance. I will only use standard compression options.
The speed and backup size of Acronis is set to 100%, the others are listed relatively to Acronis.

Speed:
Acronis=100% (smaller is better): Snapshot 97%, Active@ 110%, Terabyte 115%, Aomei 117%, Macrium 210%

Size:
Acronis=100% (smaller is better): Snapshot 97%, Terabyte 101%, Aomei 115%, Active@ 121%, Macrium 177%

changelog: 20141227 First version (not completed until 20141228)
What is the difference between Acronis True Image & Acronis Backup 11.5?
I read the spec's but if someone has used both maybe a little insight.
Thanks for any update

Macrium Reflect 6, now also as Free version.

Link to release notes: (when used this way, this link always gets the lastest version of the release notes)

Code: [Select]

General download link (always gets the latest v6 free version):
32bit:

64bit:
Code: [Select]
http://updates.macrium.com/Reflect/v6/getmsi.asp?edition=0&type=99&arch=1&redirect=Y

Here's the general info on what's new in the free v6 along with a comparison chart of the other versions:
http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx]http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx"]http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx (http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx")
(The download link from that page didn't work for me, better use the links I mentioned in the code boxes).

I hope Macrium Free v6 is still as "portable" as v5 is/was, extracting the files for PE is still easy: Open the installer in 7zip ("open inside"), extract "Reflect.cab" and "Libfiles.cab", then extract the files from those two cabs.

I'm not sure the new Acronis TrueImage 2016 beta program was mentioned already, but I just read on the beta forum that there will be no WinPE.zip in the beta this time (it will be in the release version though).
This is a major bummer, and I really hope it's not a bad sign, I hope they don't change the WinPE stuff too much, as it's pretty much the only really usefull part of Acronis TrueImage.

xman charl,
welcome to TheOven.

Quite a short reply you're giving there, why not write a little longer contribution? It was a good learning experience for you? Why/ when/ how/ who/ what (etc.).

Are you looking forward to the 2016 beta WinPE files or not? Are you using the 2014 32bit files or the 2015 64bit files?
Etc. etc., please tell us more, we can use new contributors!

Have used acronis 11, arcronis 13. Problems with their 13 version, winpe.
Used grub os to run 13.
Passed on version 14.
Have used version 15, several flaws in this version.
A flaw?.... some activation keyer will be messed up, when
a restore is made. Office will be un-activated, what up with that?

Generally these acronis winpe builds helped go on to build, win7 and win8.1 isos.

Add drivers, packages, to install.wim.

Acronis True Image 2016 released today (thanks to LostED for the direct links:
Code: [Select]
Acronis True Image (Web Installer): http://dl.acronis.com/s/AcronisTrueImage2016_web.exe
Acronis True Image (Full Installer): http://dl.acronis.com/s/AcronisTrueImage2016.exe
Acronis True Image (Media Addons ): http://dl.acronis.com/s/AcronisTrueImage2016_addons.exe
Acronis True Image (Bootable Media): http://dl.acronis.com/s/AcronisTrueImage2016.iso

Of course, I (only) wanted to test if the compact PE files were still available, so I downloaded the Media Addons. It works like before, with a few changes. I first opened "AcronisTrueImage2016_addons.exe" with 7zip ("open inside"), then extracted "AcronisTrueImageAddons.msi". Then used "open inside" on the .msi and extracted the only file inside, and renamed it to "whatever.zip".
Then I extracted "whatever.zip", this holds the PE files (in the "Files64" folder). Add the .dll files from \Drivers\Microsoft.VC120.CRT, and you have your semi-portable PE files (on 50mb).
After this you only need a new encoded serial. To get this, you can install the full installer (on a test system, no internet). You can even use your free TrueImage 2016 beta serial. Get the encoded serial from the registry, you can import it in PE later.
In a script, you should use the new driver files from the PE folder, but in my test it even worked with the previous driver files! I'll test the new ones as well, of course (later this week).

Everything seems to work like before, nice!!  :thumbsup:

KYHI, like my favorite TV-Radio psychiatrist would say: "And how does that make you feel?"... :logik:

Pretty nice, right?

As long as you can activate the full program once, you can "lift" the encoded serial from the registry (you know where it is, right?) and use it in PE. It doesn't matter if they get deactivated later, because I only use them in (offline) PE anyway.
So having a brand new, compact, "old fashioned" and fast Acronis in PE, is pretty nice, no?  :shhh:

It is my super portable big app without any .sys ;) , I just updated plugin and it works with no requirements even on a minimal Gena.

:turtle:

Hi Lancelot,

Yes, I was pleasantly surprised with the latest Active@ programs as well (Active disk image, boot disk, etc.) All the programs seem pretty much portable, like you said, and that's we way we like it!!
I will do some more testing with Active@ Partition Manager, to remind me how great it is, thanks for reminding me!

Fun with Imagers, part 353:

I'm sure there are Ghost fans around here (Enterprise/ Corporate ".exe" version, not Consumer), why not have some fun with the latest version (thanks to the good folks @MDL):
- Get this file:
http://esdownload.symantec.com/akdlm/CD/MTV/Symantec_Ghost_Standard_Tools_HF2.msi (http://esdownload.symantec.com/akdlm/CD/MTV/Symantec_Ghost_Standard_Tools_HF2.msi)
If you get "access denied", open this first, in a seperate tab (and leave open):
https://www4.symantec.com/Vrt/offer?a_id=117135
- Extract with your favorite msi extractor (eg. LessMSI: https://github.com/activescott/lessmsi/releases)
- Or use this:
Code: [Select]
msiexec /a Symantec_Ghost_Standard_Tools_HF2.msi /qb TARGETDIR=c:\Symantec
(or use 7zip, "open inside", then extract and examine the 2 large .cab files, extract them, have some fun guessing which file needs renaming to ".exe", you can guess by filesize: around 4mb for 32bit, around 8mb for 64bit).
- This will give you all the files you need, eg. ghost32.exe, ghost64.exe, ghost explorer, etc.
- Version info: 12.0.0.8010, datecode 20150807 (or 20150817?), pretty new, that's my point...

Thanks Atari800xl,

I will sure test when I find time  :smile:

btw, I test AcronisTI link you gave recently, added your notes to AcronisTI plugin  :thumbsup:
so I guess (I may read somewhere) no more AcronisTI x86 anymore ??? or only plugin repository don't contain.

The last (final) 32bit PE version is True Image 2014 build 6673 (17.0.0.6673) datecode 20140204.
The new 64bit versions are quite similar (which is a good thing, we don't need the new gui "improvements" of the full Windows version), it just looks like Acronis decided not to compile for 32bit anymore. Can't imagine why, but that's the way it is.
(Other "big names" still compile for both 32 and 64bit, like Terabyte, DriveSnapshot, Active@, Macrium, Paragon, and ehh, even Ghost...)

This a great write up!!! I downloaded Lancelot script @

Set,%GhostSrv%,ghostsrv.exe
If,%sourcearch%,Equal,x64,If,ExistFile,%ProvideFiles%\ghostsrv64.exe,Set,%GhostExp%,ghostsrv64.exe

I did rename all the files with .exe but a lot of them are made
to run in the comand prompt.

New Acronis True Image build (thanks to AJ79 for the news):
6027, dated 20151127

Code: [Select]

I did a quick test, everything seems to work like before. No changelog yet (will add it when available).

For quick info, download the addons (3rd link), open the exe with 7zip ("open inside", control-pgdn), extract AcronisTrueImageAddons.msi, open that (open inside), extract the only file that's inside, rename to pe.zip, extract pe.zip, etc. etc. like before.

Info on the new driver files:
fltsrv.sys 1.3.0.2227 (was 1.3.0.2195 for build 5634 20150924)
snapapi.dll 4.7.0.2463 (was 4.7.0.2447)
snapman.sys 4.7.0.2463 (was 4.7.0.2447)

I did a test of the new "PE program files" using the previous sys files (existing PESE), everything seemed to work OK, so there do not seem be any changes in driver/ program behaviour. I will test the new sys files when I make a new PESE build.

EDIT: Changelog now available:
http://www.acronis.com/en-sg/support/updates/changes.html?p=37994

Multiple improvements in data archiving
 (Support of files larger than 4 GB, Support for archives with more than 100,000 files, Custom selection of the Acronis Cloud data centers, Improved user experience, Issue fixes)
etc. etc.

See if you get a Unsigned Driver Error - when boot UEFI or UEFI/SecureBoot
snapman.sys 4.7.0.2463 (was 4.7.0.2447)

Snapman.sys has always caused this error, when not booted using legacy support and PE..
although the driver is clearly signed

New Disk Director 12 build!
Acronis Disk Director 12, build 12.0.3270, date 20151225
Direct download link:http://dl.acronis.com/s/ADD12_3270_en-US.exe

I'm going to test this today or tomorrow, but the "tried and trusted" way of extracting the program files seems to work nicely. My previous serial in hklm\software\acronis\diskdirector ("enterprise") also seems to work, so just make sure you have that serial, and the usual Acronis files in your system (fltsrv.sys, snapapi.dll, snapman.sys). Looks like the latest Acronis True Image drivers are fine! So I'm looking forward to testing this unexpected christmas present!

If you want to try: download the original file here:http://dl.acronis.com/s/ADD12_3270_en-US.exe
Use 7zip
ADD12_3270_en-US.exe, open inside, extract AcronisDiskDirector.msi
AcronisDiskDirector.msi, open inside, extract data1.cab
data1.cab, open, extract _1EF96864D30AB5E656CF870A12958C25, rename to pe.zip
pe.zip: extract, move dll files in files\drivers\Microsoft.VC80.CRT to main pe\files folder, test in PE.

I guess Wimlib is imaging-related, also, there's not a lot of news in the field of "Real" Disk Imager versions, so why not use this thread for new Wimlib versions...

Wimlib 1.9 is really great, it has nice new "capture" enhancements, maybe you like to capture your new, updated [sysprepped] Windows wims in PE (like I do). Wimlib is faster than DISM, and now has new enhancements to add all necessary info to the XML (eg. for WinNTSetup!!)
 :thumbsup:

I know ChrisR mentioned he would be busy in January, so maybe this is a nice surprise for him tomorrow (=feb 1st).  :lol:

wimlib 1.9.0 released

Quote
Post by synchronicity ยป Sun Jan 31, 2016 7:19 am
wimlib 1.9.0 has been released. From the NEWS file:

Added experimental support for Windows VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service).
The new '--snapshot' argument to 'wimcapture' makes wimlib automatically
create and use a temporary VSS snapshot when capturing a WIM image.

Implemented setting of Windows-specific XML information, such as
architecture, system root, and version details. This information is now
automatically set in newly captured WIM images, when appropriate.

Improved performance of directory tree scans on Windows.

On Windows, to improve capture performance, wimlib now sometimes opens
files by inode number rather than by path. This is enabled for
wimcapture and wimappend, but for now other applications have to opt-in.

The progress messages printed by wimlib-imagex while writing WIM files
have been slightly tweaked.

Progress information for directory tree scans now counts all hard links.
Also, on Windows "\\?\" is no longer stripped from the current path.

Added a new '--image-property' option to 'wimcapture', 'wimappend', and
'wiminfo'. This option lets you assign values to elements in a WIM
file's XML document by name.

The wimlib_get_image_property() and wimlib_set_image_property() API
functions now support numerically indexed elements.

Fixed a bug where, on Windows, wimlib would change the security
descriptor of the target directory of an extraction even when the
'--no-acls' option was specified.

Sorry to quote the whole thing, just wanted to share new version:

Ghost build 12.0.0.8023 Digital Signature 2016.01.20

http://esdownload.symantec.com/akdlm/CD/MTV/Symantec_Ghost_Standard_Tools_3_0_HF5.msi

If you only need Ghost32.exe or Ghost64.exe (pretty much Portable, great for PE!) just get the msi, "Open Inside" with 7zip, extract Cab1.cab, then open that and extract Ghost32.exe and/or Ghost64.exe.
Ghost fans will know what to do to get the other files needed. If your download fails, read the instructions in my quoted message!

Already mentioned elsewhere, but I wanted to mention it here as well:
New Terabyte Image 2.99.
Actually, the version number is "2.99-00", so that leaves enough room for "2.99-01" to "2.99-99", so luckily, no plans for a V3, just the tried and tested goodness of version 2 series!

Everything works like before, so you only need the ImageW (and maybe TBView) exe's, and the .ini file with your serial.

I was trying the new Boot Disk Creator from LSoft's new KillDisk Professional 10.1.1.0, available here (direct download link): http://download.lsoft.net/KillDiskSuite-Setup.exe
I didn't want to install the full package, so I only extracted these files with InnoUnpack (rename the ",1" and ",2" files for 32 or 64bit):
Code: [Select]
BootDiskCreator.exe
KillDiskBootDisk.iso
QTCore4.dll
QTGui4.dll
QTNetwork4.dll
settings.ini (you need to put your username and serial number in here!!)
StarBurn.dll

Now start the exe, insert your usb and press "next". This only works if you have a valid registration in settings.ini, but you might want to check out the new options here (check the tabs on top).

Just for your information.... Maybe you want to check it out. LSoft stuff sometimes contains nice utilities that you can add to your WinPESE projects as well.

There's a new Acronis True Image Home version ("2016 Update 2", build 6559) and it looks like the 32bit PE files are back!!
(Thanks to OliverJia for the heads up)

I only did a quick test on the download, more later...

- download the installer (there is no separate Addon, the PE files are in the main installer now!!!):
http://dl2.acronis.com/s/AcronisTrueImage2016_6559.exe

- 7zip: select the downloaded exe, "open inside"
- extract the .msi file
- select the msi file in 7zip, "open inside"
- sort on file size, select one of the biggest files (74 603 800 bytes, starts with "_49_25")
- rename that file to "pe.zip" and open it
- this seems to have the PE files, and.....

It looks this one has 32bit PE files as well!!! Could be good news for some folks here!!!

I'll try to do some testing on it this week, but maybe others have to spare time to check this out as well.

Thanks again to OliverJia...

EDIT: Yep, confirmed: The 32bit files worked perfectly on a quick Win7PESE-32 build!  :thumbsup:
Also tested the 64bit files, working fine as usual.

You're welcome, glad to help, so you like "Acronis32" as well, do you?

I like it because it's still the fastest and (for me) still very reliable (I know results may be different for others). It's also quite easy to add to any PE (standard MS winpe/ winre as well). All you need is the (encoded) serial and services in the registry, then of course the driver files in \system32\drivers, snapapi.dll in system32, and of course the program files (including VC files), which can also reside in a separate folder on your usb (or in my case: mounted iso).

A little while back, I studied SIW2/ CEW's PE-creation batch files, and I really like how he uses 7zip to extract the PE hives, does some "registry magic" on them, adds some program files, then uses Wimlib "Update" to put everything back in the wim file. Just as a test, I tried this approach to add the Acronis stuff to a standard PE, and really liked it, it's very fast, done in a few seconds.

So why am I writing this? Well, I was wondering if anybody knew if SIW2 is still around and if he still supports his PE batches?

Or do you stll provide your projects on an "invite only" sort of basis? Of course, that's fine as well...
Are the v7 and v8 versions from August 2015 still current?
Looking forward to your reply, or PM.

Yes,  I want to have the same tools in both my PE's and sometimes I really still need a x86 PE.


And I can also confirm, for me Acronis currently has the best speed and compression level.
But no command line, no image mounting  :frusty:

A good news to have ATI 2016 32bit, in addition to the 64-bit version.
I will also be able to use in x86 PE  :cool: and  thank you for the info :thumbsup:

In testing, I saw an anomaly, the backup operation failed, when there is not enough free space to receive the backup file.
It seems there is no test between the estimated backup size and the free space available.
It would be good to have, even if it is only an estimate.

Otherwise, I have not really seen gain, here, in the performance improvements written in 6559 changelog (http://www.acronis.com/en-us/support/updates/changes.html?p=37994)
It took almost the same time here, between ATI 2016 x64 build 6027 and ATI 2016 x64 or x86 build 6559
I tested in VMWare, with a backup of windows 10 x64, disk space used 24,5 Gb. 
Anyway, ATI speed and compression remains a reference  :thumbsup:

Based on Kyhi Acronis TrueImage 2016 v12 on Yomi server, I made a "new" plugin for "Acronis TrueImage 2016 Update 2".
with both 32/64 bits versions and an option to use 32 bits version on x64 build, probably not useful!
I'll probably share it in another topic, to not disturb this good one  :thumbsup:  :great:

I'm considering WimLib as "imager" related, I love it for capturing updated sysprepped systems, doing quick pe mods (using wimlib "update"), etc. etc.

So here goes:

wimlib version 1.9.2 has been released. There are a few small changes:

    On UNIX, wimlib can now overwrite readonly files when extracting.

    On Windows, fixed a bug where wimlib could leave a null DACL (a.k.a. "no
    NTFS permissions") set on some existing directories after extraction.

    On Windows, when applying a WIM image in "WIMBoot mode" when the WOF
    driver is not loaded, wimlib can now correctly register a new WIM file
    with the target volume when the target volume previously had had WIM
    files unregistered.

    Added a new testing program.

    Clarified the main license text and updated public domain dedications
    for certain files to be more thorough.

Acronis 2017 beta program has started. More details tomorrow...

EDIT: Couldn't resist, just HAD to test if the tried and tested method still works:
- Get serial from beta test program
- Download full installer of the 2017 beta:
http://dl.acronis.com/s/AcronisTrueImage2017_beta.exe
- Extract the PE files from it (7zip, open inside, get the "_50_25C82....etc" file from the .msi, etc. as before)
- Install the full version in a "throw-away" Windows setup or VM, register (offline if you want) with the beta serial, grab the encoded serial from the registry (hklm) and save it somewhere
- You can now use the PE files as before, with the encoded beta serial, in PE.

So, good to see nothing has changed in the "PE mode" of Acronis, I never use the full version anyway...

Great news for the Acronis plugin developers. MDL forum member "viper Zx" found out the translation table to convert the normal serial key to the registry format required for PE. I'm sure somebody can make a script for the translation, I'll see if I can make anything in Autohotkey (probably won't be very efficient).

At least I can share the table (I added dots for clarity, they have to be replaced by spaces in the end result):

First character=Normal serial notation
Characters 3-5: Registry notation (replace dots with spaces):

Thanks again to "viper Zx":

That's not what this is about.
It's about encoding a serial from normal format to reg format.

And in fact: there have been some changes in 2017: the libcrypto patch for the "full" version (not the PE version) doesn't work anymore, but that's a different topic.

Acronis True Image 2017 multi language was make some change language key. For Linux boot media, it was change:
language=13 (chinese) to language=zh_CN (region code). In windows, language code write in this key
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\Global]
"language"="" (REG_SZ value)
language code can see my pic.
For PE version, it don't work. May be need rescue media WinPE version (in other language) for check registry value.  :sad:

I made a simple program in Autohotkey (not good enough to share), but the translation table is:

Code: [Select]
"-123456789ABCDEFGHJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ"
to
"120100103102 97 96 99 98109108 20 23 22 17 16 19 18 29 31 30 25 24 27 26  5  4  7  6  1  0  3  2 13 12 15"

So it's just a matter of "find pos" in table 1, "find ((pos-1)*3)+1" in table 2. An Autohotkey exe will be too large for this, maybe an AutoIt version, or JFX's favorite: PureBasic? (I know it creates tiny exe files!)

But in my example before, the double dots were for **two** spaces, as you can see in the table...

I found my notes from last year, where Anshad explained to me that Acronis can run almost as a portable program, as long as you copy the correct files (sys,dll) to %windir%\system and %windir%\system\drivers, and then manually create and start the services. I must admit I almost competely forgot about that possibility  :sad:

Now that we have the serial translation tables, and the PE files easily accessible in the full download (both x86 and x64), everything seems to come together nicely, and with the correct "launcher" for Acronis, it will act and feel as a portable app, all that's needed is your serial (which you paid for, of course), everything else is (can be) automatic.
Now all that's left is some decent command-line interface for Acronis, I remember JFX talking about that before, and since then I have to admit that Terabyte's command line is superior, and allows for a "single keystroke" backup of selected partitions, which is a real bonus!

Hi Rui Paz,

There is
Gena\Drivers\6 Other\"Add/Remove UpperFilters" plugin available.

To Test:
copy plugin to
\Projects\MyPlugins_Direct\DriversMy
or create link
(Inside "CodeBox")
Code: [Select]
[Process]
If,ExistFile,%api%,AddVariables,%api%,ApiVar,GLOBAL
//--
Call,CreateLink,"%BaseDir%\Projects\Gena\Drivers\6 Other\AddRemoveUpperFilters.script",%ProjectDir%\Drivers

You will see it is designed to help conflicting UpperFilters trouble.


Since not tested on SE, It is still at only Gena.

Let us know how things goes
