i downloaded and installed Windows AIK for Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. the complete response that i get when trying to create the image as follows:
C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools>imagex /capture c:\ d:\images\WAIK.wi
ImageX Tool for Windows
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp. All rights reserved.
Files/folders excluded from image capture by default:
\System Volume Information

[ ERROR ] c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\IMpServiceEDB4FA23-53B8
-4AFA-8C5D-99752CCA7094.lock (Error = 32)
Error imaging drive [c:\]
The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
i used the deployment tools command prompt to attemp to execute this command, and i also tried creating the WIM file in Windows PE aswell but it failed aswell it said "imagex is a unrecognized internal or external command." if someone could shed some light in helping me troubleshoot or fix this issue it would be much appreciated, thank you.
