I got Winbuilder from chip.de magazine with Vista projectfile included.
Now I want to try to make a xp live cd.
But I cannot find a projectfile for this.
I did read winbuilder had a few projectfiles included but I cannot find them.
I downloaded version 7.0 from your site but no projectfiles.
Who can help me?

Hi Hans,
Welcome in this forum!

The WinBuilder version you got from Chip is an old 'snapshoot'. The Chip Vista project scripts are mainly developed by Chip editors and cannot be found here.

If you want to start with projects offered here, do this:

Download WinBuilder 072 or 072a (offers some more project servers) into an empty directory.
Start WinBuilder.exe and it will offer you some possibilities to download projects. Choose one and process it.
  • If you come into a running emulator: Congratulations!
    (I know that it will happen with 'my baby nativeEx_barebone')
  • If there are some troubles, post them here
Good luck!

Thanks Peter!
I found "Nativepe-project".
I suppose this is the one to build a XP live disk?
I did not found the name "Livexp".
Is this correct?

If you only found NativePE then something went wrong.

BTW: NativePE is a very sophisticated project assembled by Thunn.
If it runs for you, ok. If it does not run for you: Maybe as a beginner you should start with less complexe projects:
  • nativeEx_barebone (low level, only some apps)
  • LiveXP (higher level, more apps)
But inside WinBuilder / Download you can define WEB servers manually: The middle icon in the panel 'Available WEB Servers'

Samples: (project- server)

LiveXP - livexp.boot-land.net
nativeEx_barebone - nativeex.boot-land.net
NativePE - thuun.boot-land.net/WinBldr/XP-2K3/Projects

(
@Nuno:
Would be nice if anywhere inside the forum there is a pinned topic defining the currently actual projects and servers.
)

Hi Peter,
I appreciate the answers you gave to me.
But I have to quit this experiment.

Previously I managed to build a bartpe bootable for my USB stick.
So I may be a newbie but not completely.

I want you to know what went wrong.

First I tried the Chip.de vista project. I made the Iso burnt it but when booting I got a message about missing a winload.exe.
I could not solve this so I searched the Winbuilder community for info.

First of all my version 7.0 would not connect to the internet so I could not do anything.
After downloading version 7.2 this connection issue was solved.
I downloaded the nativepe project because that was the only project I could find.
I compiled a Iso but everytime I got a error about Upx.exe.
After spending a lot of time on searching I found that Upx.exe was a compression program (had never heard of it) I downloaded it from the internet and installed it in the tools folder. I expected it to be in the tool-folder by default.
So this problem was solved too.
After compiling a Iso, I thought with no problems, I burnt it and discovered there were no executable programs in the Programs-folder.
I tried to run programs from drive x: but no result.

So, conclusion, is not very easy to start with a project.
You were very helpfull, thanks for that, but I do not want to take so much time from someone.
I did not expect it was so difficult to start building a livecd.

Perhaps someone can benefit from my experiences.

A little bit more modest as I was before,


Hans

Dont give up! You could do it, trust me!
If I have managed everyone could.

1. Make the new folder LiveXP.
2. Copy following WB: Attached File  WinBuilder.zip ( 821.06K ) Number of downloads: 4
in that folder.
3. Start the WinBuilder.
4. Select Download.
5. On Servers deselect all except livexp.boot-land.net .
6. Press Download and wait until its finished.
7. Press Scripts.
8. Press Paths.
9. Browse to your Source folder.
10. Press Play and wait until processing is finished.
11. You will have working Build started in qEmu.
12. If you are satisfied come back for further help.

Happy testing!

Ok. I'll try tomorrow.

Hans,

I'm sorry that you made bad experience with your first WinBuilder trial.
As I already told you:
QUOTE
BTW: NativePE is a very sophisticated project assembled by Thunn.

  • nativeEx_barebone (low level, only some apps)
  • LiveXP (higher level, more apps)


I think the way Phox explained is a very good tutorial which should give you at least a running PE ISO.
(to have a less complex project, following his tutorial, you may use the server 'nativeex.boot-land.net', and choose the project 'nativeEx_barebone')

Good luck!

Peter

Sorry, it did not work.
I did exactly what you said, but while processing the scripts I received about 25 errors.
Type of errors:
Error- TxtAddline
Error iniwrite
cannot find
Error Iniaddsection
Error-Extractfile
et. etc.
The last error was in a dos screen Qemu hangs....

I had a iso. But it didn't boot at all. The cd was obviously not readable.

Sorry for you, sorry for me, sorry for us.
We did our best we cannot do more.

Nevertheless thanks for trying.

Sorry that you got such a result and therefore are rather disappointed!

There are two possibilities:
  • You are patient (And I spend some time) to bring your project to success
    (All users have the success anywhen, if they do the necessary steps)
    Maybe WinBuilder's scripts -not WinBuilder itself!- do not yet have all necessary helps for beginners.
  • You are not patient ant leave disappointed
In case of you are patient:
Usually if somebody has troubles, he posts his log (especially he has 25 errors like you)
If you post your log, here are many experieced users who can tell you what's going wrong and how to change.

Therefore:
Let's start with step #1: Post the log of the above mentioned 25 errors project.
If not yet familar, how-to:
  • Build your project
  • Click the 'Log' tab
  • Click 'Save as log.html'
  • With explorer, go to %BaseDir% (the folder where WinBuilder.exe resides)http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=3243&st=0&gopid=22431&#
    Complete Edit
  • Zip 'log.html' and post here
As told above, I'm willing to spend time to bring you to success. You only have to spend some time too, and do what I need.
