Windows 7: ImageX Error Code 32 when trying to create a WIM file

30 Nov 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
ImageX Error Code 32 when trying to create a WIM file

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
m "SystemBackup"

ImageX Tool for Windows
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp. All rights reserved.
Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Files/folders excluded from image capture by default:

 \System Volume Information

Scanning files and directories...
[ 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.
