This guide assumes you have already successfully created a VistaPE CD using the Beginner's Guide to Creating a VistaPE CD and now want to install one or more of Mustang's Acronis WinBuilder-VistaPE scripts in your build.
Mustang's Acronis scripts support more program features than the standard BartPE plugins provided by Acronis in addition to allowing you to run the programs from your VistaPE CD.
The example shown below will be using the True Image Home 11 script.
Once you have have purchased the script and saved it to a folder on your computer, extract the contents into another folder.
Here, the files have been extracted into the xTrueImageH11 sub-folder of my Downloads folder.
Copy the extracted xTrueImageH11 folder into the Projects\VistaPE\App sub-folder of your WinBuilder folder.
If WinBuilder is running, click the Refresh button. Otherwise, start WinBuilder. Browse to the VistaPE >> App >> xTrueImageH11 folder. Expand the folder and click on the Acronis True Image Home 11.0 script to select it.
The options and settings for the script will be displayed on the right side of the window. The Script tab should be selected (click it if it's not).
If your Windows partition is assigned the C: drive letter and you have installed True Image to its default location, no changes are necessary. If your installation is not default, make the necessary changes.
The next step is to copy your program's Serial Number from the Registry and paste the value into the appropriate box. The Registry key and value needed are shown in the script.
Open the Registry Editor and browse to the specified key (in this example, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Acronis\TrueImage).
Copy the data of the value (standard, in this example) by following the instructions in the script.
The Serial Number will be a long string of spaces and number groups.
Click into the Serial Number box and press Ctrl-V to paste the copied Serial Number value into the box. Then click the Save button.
Finally, click the Play button to recreate your VistaPE build and include your Acronis program(s).
Burn the new VistaPE ISO file to a CD and boot it. Your Acronis program should show up in the menu as well as having a desktop icon.
