I uploaded version 5 beta of the script for my "PE Network Manager" utility to manage the IP settings under VistaPE and Win7PE.
You also have the possibility to connect to wireless networks (private networks only for the moment).
With this utility you can connect to network drives, share folders (still in progress) and do some other things like just 'ping' a host/address.

The script you can also download from 'my' personal Bootland-website (http://holger.winbuilder.net/).
DirectDL (zipped 458KB): http://holger.winbuilder.net/scripts/PENetwork_vpe.zip

Current state:
05.08.2009

- Updated "PE Network Manager" to version 0.56 -> use script option "Check for newer version of PENM..."
- Fixed: Missing 'Then' in WiFi start/stop function
- Added: Some missing lang strings

02.08.2009 - v5 beta (PENM 0.55)
- Fixed/Changed: Internal update procedure in WB script
- Fixed: WiFi key can now includes '&' character and '<', '>' characters (thanks to KdN)
(-> ''' and '"' - characters test is sill open cause the 1st test with XPSP: these characters were stored directly in XML,
not with "'" or """)
- Fixed: Internal script bug with some disabled controls - bug was not visible in compiled mode
- Added: Window position of PENM will be saved on GUI closing and reloaded on GUI starting
- Added: Optional using profiles in WB script (like in LiveXP script)

27.05.2009 - v4 beta (PENM 0.51)
- Fixed: Bug in VistaPE/Win7PE driver installing (FileRepository)

22.05.2009 - v4 beta (PENM 0.50)
- Fixed: Error while connecting to nonsecured wireless network
- Fixed: Wrong connection state tooltip after changing language
- Fixed: 64bit OS issues (right mouse click on network drives, last used network path, etc.)
- Fixed: Some missing color settings (ping, profiles - will be explained later how to use)
- Fixed: Missing title update in WiFi connection GUI
- Fixed: Bug in VistaPE driver installing (inf section removing)
- Changed: Some internal WMI using
- Added: Profile CMD's are now executed after changing network parameters
- Added: Domain automatically used from target path on network drive connecting
- Added: Option to update "PE Network Manager" program automatically from WB script


History:
CODE
22.02.2009 - v3 beta (PENM 0.46):
- Fixed: Bug in refresh of WiFi available networks
- Fixed: Bug in WiFi profile export (OneX not supported at the moment)
- Fixed: WiFi listviews did not react on DblClick anymore after color scheme change
- Fixed: Direct key input striped the key
- Fixed: WiFi bug while adding profile with WEP encryption
- Changed: WiFi arrays
- Added: WiFi profile apply without change without retyping key
- Added: WiFi exporter (XPSP2 with WlanApi, XPSP3, Vista, 2008)
- Added: Some additional checks/routines for WMI using under WAIK-PE


Using with WAIK is not implemented in the WB script yet.
However, if have a PE with WMI package added then just extract the .exe from the scripts and then you can use it also with WAIK-PE.

There is still a lot todo and space for improving, not all things are working now (like iw. starting sharing - you still need the script "FileSharing")...
(For LiveXP I'm also do some new tests with WiFi with DeviceIoControl - miniport direct commands).
However, you can already test the basic functionality.
In LiveXP it is working good so I think there should no big problems with running it under VistaPE and you can give it a chance smile.gif
If you have any questions, suggestions or problems just let me know.

For additional information you can also take a look in the "Developement" section or my winbuilder page (ie. screenshots).

Thanks smile.gif

I already added a checku string "Longhorn" for the Win7 beta but however for the pure Win7PE (like the CMD prompt from the repair tools) it will not work or did you build it with WinBuilder?
Then it should or do not like under VistaPE wink.gif

Have you seen my Win7 PE images?
cmd prompt is left ages ago for me, hee hee. tongue.gif
My one is with BSexplorer shell, network, MMC, and so many apps are running.
At the moment, networking is very well with PeNetCfg.exe from The Truth latest one.

Here is the link for my Win7 PE images.

1 more good news smile.gif
WinPE2.1 build with WAIK source (tested with version for SP1/2008) with WMI package added will also be able to use "PENetwork Manager" in a few days/weeks (currently I implement some routines for using WMI if the TCPIPRegistry service is not available).

So long...

Hate to ask a dumb question, but what folder should I put the PENetwork Manager script under? Are there any special build setup instructions?
I looked at http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?...ic=976&st=0 it doesn't seem to indicate anything special.

If I copy the script to App/System or App/Network, the build fails.In addition, doing so causes a duplicate folder to appear, i.e. app/system and another app/system to appear in the tree. The first app/system contains the PENetwork Manager Script, and the second app/system contains the other original scripts. Exiting winbuilder and re-executing it still shows this issue. In any case, putting the script in System or Network kills the build.


I just found the wiki by googling (http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/WinBuilder#Scripts). The instructions below don't make sense in VistaPE, or do they???

Where do I place my scripts?

You can place your scripts inside the same folder where the project you want to create is placed.

Using LiveXP as example, you can place your scripts inside the %BaseDir%\Projects\LiveXP folder, where %BaseDir% is the same path where WinBuilder.exe is found. Placing your script inside this folder is more than enough to make it available from the the main window when browsing your project.

Also worth noting that some projects also have a specific folder where all related scripts are grouped. Using the same LiveXP example, you can place your scripts with programs inside the %BaseDir%\Projects\LiveXP\Apps folder.




Thanks,

Phil

I managed to put the script in the "Games" folder. The system built, but when I go to games, there is no PENetwork manager listed.

It is however listed under the network folder.

Fortunately there is also desktop shortcut. Running it, I unfortunately see that my laptop intel 3945abg wireless chipset is not detected, nor does the normal PENetcfg list the chipset.

So, I now have to find out how to add the intel 3945abg wireless chipset driver to the build......

http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=3660, not clear from here how to do it

Just put the "PENetwork"-script in the same folder like "PENetCfg" - on my system ie: "Addons".
The network drivers can be copied automatically copied by the script itself - just point it to the drivers folder.
There is also created a "PENMDrvCpy.txt" in your %TEMP%-folder (Start -> Run -> %TEMP%) - so you can take a look here.
