Hi there,

Recently, browsing through some of the Gena packages I stumbled over a script for Windows Charmap.
Perfect, I thought to myself, as my PE builds still lack of this useful little utility.

I don't know whether it's working for other projects, but it seems it isn't for Win7PE SE (latest release).
It just doesn't launch... Haven't got this script any more, could anyhere contribute a working Charmap script, please?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Mikka,

I do not know what Charmap requires to run on Win7PE SE,

for today, I updated Charmap plugin to v3 on Gena server, to get Win7PE SE tests easier  :wink:  :thumbsup:


@Chris, JFX,
I added, commented out Filecopy/dircopy lines (winsxs), they did not get Charmap work besides may help  if you get interested....

 :cheers:

Next time you see someone adding components to winsxs folder, shoot him ...

Charmap depends on HelpPaneProxy.dll.

Thanks, Lancelot, for the new version. However, for Win7PE SE, charmap won't launch.
I'm not really good at this, but could it be the (Internet Explorer?) library file ieshims.dll that is missing?
Any system experts here reading this?

Perfect, v4 works like a charm with Win7PE SE. :great:
Thank you very much. I added reg keys to show up in Unicode mode with the preferred font selected...

RegWrite,HKLM,0x1,Tmp_Default\Software\Microsoft\Charmap,Advanced,1
RegWrite,HKLM,0x1,Tmp_Default\Software\Microsoft\Charmap,CodePage,Unicode
RegWrite,HKLM,0x1,Tmp_Default\Software\Microsoft\Charmap,Font,Consolas
RegHiveUnLoad,Tmp_Default
RegHiveLoad,Tmp_Software,%RegSoftware%
RegWrite,HKLM,0x1,"Tmp_Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\win.ini",MSCharMap,#USR:Software\Microsoft\Charmap
RegWrite,HKLM,0x1,"Tmp_Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\win.ini",MSUCE,USR:Software\Microsoft\CharMap

Or, if you prefer, here's my modification:
