    Win 8 Image Deployment


    Hi All, new to the forum,

    Has anyone had any joy using the DISM image deployment tool,

    below is the message i get trying to capture an image

    DISM doesn't recognise the command-line option "d:\thinimage.wim"

    I've tried the below.

    dism /capture-image /capturedir:f:\ /imagefile "d:\thinimage.wim" /name:"MyCompany"

    I've checked this over and over and i'm defiantly following the line they require.... any ideas? Thanks.

    I know nothing about DISM, so please check what I say first...

    ...but looking at the format of the command line, I wonder if there should be a colon after /imagefile?

    so replace
    dism /capture-image /capturedir:f:\ /imagefile "d:\thinimage.wim" /name:"MyCompany"

    with
    dism /capture-image /capturedir:f:\ /imagefile:"d:\thinimage.wim" /name:"MyCompany"

    Strange, it worked for me just now:


    C:\DISM8>Dism /Capture-Image /ImageFile:d:\thinimage.wim /CaptureDir:l: /Name:My
    Company

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.2.9200.16384

    Saving image
    [==========================100.0%==========================]
    The operation completed successfully.


    C:\DISM8>
