Ithink he means to mount your winre.wim and put the new files in.

There is usually a list of them on the ms kb page.

( I normally put the new reg entries in as well - It might work without - depends what they are. )

I'm unsure how to mount the Winre.wim file. I have Windows AIK installed but I am a little unsure on how to use it?

Select an EMPTY folder as the Mount directory.

Browse to winre.wim.

Click The MOUNT button.

You can replace anything in there you like.

When you have finished, click UNMOUNT-COM (that means unmount and commit the changes ).

Hey SIW2, thanks for that. Great little utility!

So, do I need to replace just those 3 system restore files or copy the whole folder into the winre image and delete the old System restore folder/files?
I'm wondering why Windows doesn't place winre.wim in the system reserved partition?

I really appreciate all the help from you guys!

Hi,

I expect you will need to replace at least the mui files as well.

You will find them in windows\system32\en-us.

You can try it and see if it works.

I assume you are using a copy of your winre.wim.

Try it and see.

Ok, I will give it a try and report back later. I'm gonna get some sleep soon.

I'm using the original winre.wim file but I have made a copy of this to an external drive.

Is there any chance my system won't boot if it doesn't work?

No, if you get it wrong the repair disc might not start up - but it won't affect your installed version of windows7.

Ok So I followed the instructions (This was all done after installing the hotfix from Microsoft).

1) Mounted Winre.wim using DISM GUI x64

2) Copied rstrui.exe, srclient.dll, srcore.dll from folder C:\Windows\Winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-systemrestore-main_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.21765_none_a55a64b5e323ca67 and replaced the 3 files in winre.wim

3) Copied rstrui.exe.mui and srcore.dll.mui (couldn't find srclient.dll.mui file) from C:\Windows\System32\en-us\ folder into same folder in winre.wim.

4) Clicked Unmount-Commit in DISM GUI.

5) Created a restore point to test.

6) Rebooted PC into WinRE, ran System Restore and........................

SYSTEM RESTORE COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY!!

Thanks so much to SIW2 and Kaktussoft for the help and advice. Hopefully this thread will help anyone else who encounters this problem.

nice to hear you did it successfully. mui files weren't neccessary. WAIK wasn't needed as well!!
create a temp working folder example c:\worktemp. start an elevated command prompt:


DISM.exe /Mount-Wim /WimFile:<pathtowim>\winre.wim /index:1 /mountdir:c:\worktemp
wim file is now extracted automatically in c:\worktemp
update/replace or whatever you want in c:\worktemp
ready? close all open folder and files to be sure c:\worktemp hasn't any open files
following command commits all changes back to winre.wim
DISM.exe /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:C:\worktemp /commit
following command discards all changes
DISM.exe /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:C:\worktemp /discard
delete folder c:\worktemp afterwards

make a new system recovery disk and test
