SmartWIM is a high-performance component that offers the ultimate in flexibility yet is easy to use. SmartWIM includes a state-of-the-art, fully documented COM object and ActiveX control.
SmartWIM has very low memory requirements and a small on-disk footprint. It is perfectly suited for deployment or recovery environments such as the Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE). It can run in the background and can be dynamically instantiated for formless use.
SmartWIM is 100% compatible with the Windows Imaging File (WIM) format and is, in fact, an implementation of the Windows Imaging Application Programming Interface (WIMGAPI). Images created with SmartWIM and the Microsoft ImageX command-line tool are completely interchangeable.
SmartDeploy products have always been known for their intuitive design and ease of use. SmartWIM continues this tradition by offering built-in constants, enumerations, and help strings. With SmartWIM, applications can capture and apply images while receiving progress details in both percent complete and time remaining. Major operations can also be aborted at any time, and detailed return codes along with their text descriptions are simple to retrieve.
SmartWIM includes comprehensive online documentation that is packed with examples to help you accomplish your tasks effortlessly. Fully commented sample applications are included for many languages with more being added. You can copy examples from the help file or samples, paste them into your project, and capture or apply WIM files without writing a single line of code.
SmartWIM is free for internal, non-commercial use and includes complete documentation, code examples, and free forum support. The free version includes the same functionality as the registered version and is intended to allow you to design, code, and test applications that use SmartWIM. However, if you incorporate SmartWIM into another product for re-sale or distribution to customers, or want to call its functions from another application, contact SmartDeploy sales regarding licensing.
