MakePE: Configure Default Settings


You are going to want to take a look at the MakePE default settings.  This file exists at MakePE\ScriptsRW\MySettings.cmd

Ideally you should not have to make too many changes in here, but understand these are only defaults.  Most everything can be controlled by reviewing the example scripts (they trump this file).

What is in here are variables that tell MakePE what to do.  For example DoPause=Yes tells MakePE to pause at milestones.  I’d recommend leaving this as is.  There are some things you want to look at.  For starters, the set DEPLOYROOT=

Go ahead and set this to your Deployment Share on this VM.  It doesn’t matter if this exists or not, but at some point if you are going to add MDT using MakePE, then this needs to be populated.  For example you can set this to:

set DEPLOYROOT=D:\DeploymentShare

Don’t worry too much about the WinPEVersion or the PLATFORM, we just need some defaults in here, so just leave them alone for now (unless you never plan on building WinPE 5, then change it accordingly.

You can change the Scratch Space and Time Zone using MakePE if necessary to suit your environment.  Go ahead and save this file and close it.  We are not quite ready yet to build (we need AIK and ADK).
