Hi everybody, thanks for the program, but I am new in this and I have an error and do not know what to do:

IniRead - Failed to find file: [%BaseDir%\Projects\Win10PESE\project.ini]

I follow the steps and try to create my first USB to Boot but without success, if anyone can help me please I appreciate it, I try to look for the file project.ini but I do not know where is located, I look at the folder where I extract the program, I called theOven and laso in the program I download today and looks like is missing or do I need to create it, please help me.

Thanks.

Paola

 :confused: I have looked all over this site and cannot find a link to the "FAQ & Tutorials" you referenced. Could you provide the link or describe how to find it?

OK. I followed the Tutorial.
  • Downloaded the Release project to Q:\win10pe-builder.
  • Extracted all the files from my Win10 Install DVD to Q:\Win10x64-iso (not just the ISO)
  • Set Source to Q"\Win10x64-iso
  • Extracted the Wim files as in the Tutorial
When I clicked the blue "play" arrow, I still get the error:
IniRead - Failed to find file: [%BaseDir%\Projects\Win10PESE\project.ini]

What am I doing wrong?

well the first thing to do is to see if the file it tells you is missing actually exists in your %basedir% e.g. q:\win10pe-builder

In q:\win10pe-builder you should see several files and folders, and there should be a projects folder and in that a Win10PESE folder which contains projects.ini

If not you have failed on step 1 - downloading and extracting the release project

Open winbuilder and go to Images Configurations and at bottom click Save / Get Wim Info - this will create the project.ini file with all the correct information in it

See screenshot below:-

The bottom half of my corresponding window is empty (nothing below "Choose your image index".)
No "Save/Get Wim..." etc.

I found a tiny red [A] image/icon/link floating in the empty area and when I clicked on it, the bottom half info appeared with the Save button. It is running now. I'll post results tomorrow.

It failed. My screen has this info in the Images Configuration page:
                                                           Install.Wim:  (empty)
[ ] Show Wim Tools Progress                  Version: (empty)
Install.wim Image Index                        Service Pack: (empty)
 and a few more lines followed by a subwindow dialog with:
[checked ] Autodetect
[ ] Use your Extracted wim folders
and two empty dialog boxes for file names
Extracted BootWim   [                       ]
Extracted InstallWim [                       ]

After clicking on Save/Get Wim Info they are still empty and the project.ini is not in the Project folder.

So I clicked on Use your Extracted wim folders then opened Utils\Extract Wim Folders and clicked on Goooo. The 2 dialog boxes are now filled in with:
Q:\Winx64-iso\sources\winre_wim\N and Q:\Winx64-iso\sources\install_wim\N  respectively.
Went back to Image Config and clicked on Save/GetWimInfo.
Looked in winbuilder projects\WIN10PESE folder. Still no project.ini file.

Saved Main Configuration, reloaded the Wim stuff. Still no Project.ini file.  :confused: What else am I not understanding? I think I have followed the tutorial precisely. I am not getting any errors indications at this point, but I know the actual "play" won't work because of the missing file.

The file is created by builder...

Re-extract the download to Q:\OVEN

Set your SOURCE (do not change anything else) > Q:\Win10x64 (renamed)

hit PLAY button

Please show source > Q:\Win10x64 file tree

Extracted winbuilder to Q:\OVEN. Renamed ISO folder to WIN10x64. Opened winbuilder, Inserted source folder name (WIN10x64). Clicked Play. Still failed. Here is the WIN10x64 file tree:
  • boot
  • efi
  • sources
  • support
  • autorun.inf
  • bootmgr
  • bootmgr.efi
  • MediaMeta.xml
  • setup.exe

Did you check to see if the install.wim is in the source folder?  Sometimes Microsoft uses install.esd.
Hopefully this helps.

Yes, install.wim IS in the Sources folder of Win10x64.
PS. Thanks for sticking closely with this problem. Hope you had a good New Year's eve. I only have one more day to work on it before going out of town. Hope you have an idea that gets it solved.
