How to resolve an error that may occur when capturing an image using imagex.exe
Say you’re planning on deploying Windows Vista and you’ve prepped your reference computer and are ready to capture its image. You try using the following command:

imagex.exe /compress fast /capture c: c:image_name.wim “Blah” /verify

Then you get the following error: “Windows cannot access the required file image.wim”

What’s wrong? You forgot to specify which edition of Vista you’re capturing! The correct command should look something like this:

imagex.exe /compress fast /capture c: c:image_name.wim “Blah” /flags Enterprise /verify
