I propose to discuss some of the commands, the translation into other languages, case PECMD.exe.
To start offering a new version of the source code Pecmd.exe (x32x64).
If it is of interest:
The following example will show messages using some commands.

1. Mount wim with PECMD (needs wimgapi)

MOUN [!] [Wim file name],<Mount directory>,[Image ID],[WimFltr temporary working directory]

e.g mount read only:

PECMD MOUN C:\boot.wim,C:\MOUNT,1

e.g. mount r/w must specify temp directory

PECMD MOUN C:\boot.wim,C:\MOUNT,1,%TEMP%

2. Unmount

Omit Wim file name to unmount, image ID non-zero to save changes , image ID zero to discard changes.

e.g unmount discard changes

PECMD MOUN ,C:\MOUNT,0

e.g. unmount save changes

PECMD MOUN ,C:\MOUNT,1

Hi SIW2! :thumbsup:

Yes, it should be possible.

Something like this perhaps:

PECMD RAMD ImDisk,L125,NTFS,B:,Ramdisk

Then you can mount read only to B:

Thanks for the updates, SIW2. I do appreciate it, even when there's not a lot of reaction.

To be honest, I still don't know exactly how to experiment with PECMD, but I would love to try and do some testing. Let's say I have a fully "clean", unchanged MS PE, from one of the latest kits, what is the best way to incorporate PECMD in something like that? Is there any documentation that describes such a simple (?) and basic step? Does it even work that way?
Also, is there any basic documentation/ promo on what PECMD actually does, and why it's so great? Some entry-level stuff maybe?

It is a pre shell,essentially a command interpreter.

Load it first then it can call call winpeshl, create shortcuts,register components,install drivers,etc.
It also provides explorer support and hooks into the start controls to provide shudown/reboot functions.

Typically you replace winpe system hive cmdline entry E.G when building pe if you have loaded winpe system hive as PE_SYS

Code: [Select]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\PE_SYS\Setup]
"CmdLine"="PECMD.EXE MAIN %Windir%\\system32\\PECMD.INI"


Then pecmd will start up first and carry out the instructions you have put in your winpe %windir%\system32\pecmd.ini.


Typical example pecmd.ini:  ( Have bolded commands so easier to see - can't use codebox for that )

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
_SUB OSD
     // set resolution
    DISP W1024 H768 B32 F60

     TEXT SIW2 PE3.1x64 WELCOME... L30 T330 R740 B400 $24*
      // call winpeshl.exe      note: winpeshl.ini should contain the line wpeinit
    EXEC winpeshl.exe
     // call ux64.exe (for win7 theme support,ux.exe not needed for win8/10 )
     EXEC Ux64.EXE
     // Tells pecmd to init on taskbar and load usb drives
     INIT I,U 4000
     // shows all drives including hidden and assigns letters automatically
     SHOW -1:-1
     // create shortcuts

SIW2, thank you so much for taking the time to describe PECMD in easy to understand terms like you did!
Thinking of PECMD as a "command interpreter" as you said, makes it so much easier for me to understand how this tool actually works.
Thanks for your step-by-step guide as well, I'm looking forward to testing this as soon as possible, looks like a nice summer project as well.

SIW2, if I where to do some testing with "bare metal" PE versions (like the ones from the MS kits), is there anything special I should take into account? Or can I use your example for any PE version? Thanks!

You would need to look at pecmd.ini.

E.G If explorer.exe is not in the pe, (and it isn't in standard pe supplied by MS ), then you won't get far trying to launch explorer.exe as the shell.

In the above example we launched explorer.exe

TEAM SHEL %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe|WAIT 500|LOGO

If you want to experiment with standard pe, there isn't a great deal that is useful as a shell, cmd.exe, possibly notepad.exe.

You could just drop explorer++.exe in system32 of winre.wim or boot.wim from the dvd.

TEAM SHEL %Windir%\System32\explorer++.exe|WAIT 500|LOGO

Aah, so PECMD only supports explorer when it's in the PE. I thought maybe PECMD would take care of explorer integration by itself. So that assumption was wrong (at least I've learned that now).

So then my question would be: Of all the PECMD users, which solution do they use to get the "normal" explorer/ desktop into their PE's?
Is there a "standard" way of doing it, or does PECMD not care at all if you've implemented explorer into your PE or not?

They will either build their own winpe by hand, like I do, or they use something like winbuilder.

PECMD does not build winpe for you. It is used to load and control the winpe you have built.

An earlier pecmd is included in the winbuilder projects, though it is only there to provide explorer support ( allows to kill explorer.exe - which refreshes everything) and start menu hooking. I think Chris leaves it up to the end user to configure their own pecmd.ini which you can add instead of the very very very basic one he put in.

PECMD can replace all of these and any other bits and bobs winbuilder has for loading/controlling.

Win7PE.cfg
AU3381.exe
autorun.cmd
Autorun.exe
MountPEmedia.exe
MountPEmedia.ini
MountStorPE.exe
PEnet.exe
PinTool.exe
shortcuts.exe
ShutdownPE.exe
ShutdownPE.ini
StartImDisk.exe

New verison. Included Original and English.

* PECMD88.05.62-26-05-15x64-EN.7z (2290.07 kB - downloaded 191 times.)

* PECMD88.05.62-26-05-15x86-EN.7z (2156.97 kB - downloaded 207 times.)

EDIT: Hold up, Davies has just released another version dated 28/5/15.

As far as I can tell, it is not a "bug" . I think he is fiddling with new functions you are not likely to use - something to do with undeleting gpt partitions,I think. Difficult for me to understand for certain what he is doing.
