Single Answer, Multiple Choice


You are a desktop support technician for your company. You are in the process of deploying the Windows Vista operating system on all client computers in the company. You create a Windows Vista image to deploy Windows Vista on the target computers. You need to add at least one language pack to an existing offline Windows Vista image.


Which utility you should use?



  1. Windows System Image Manager (SIM)
  2. ImageX command-line utility
  3. Package Manager utility
  4. INTLCFG.EXE utility

Answer:



  1. Package Manager utility

Tutorial:
To add one or more language packs to an existing offline Windows Vista image, you should use the Package Manager utility. Using this utility you can add at least one language pack to a Windows Vista image. You can use Package Manager to install, uninstall, configure and update Window Vista features. In addition, you can also use an unattended installation file to update Windows Vista features on an offline Windows Vista computer.


Windows SIM will not help you add language packs to or remove language packs from an existing Windows Vista image. Windows SIM is used to create an answer file for Windows Vista unattended installations. The SIM is also used to generate a catalog of settings after you edit an existing image.


The ImageX command-line utility will not help you add language packs to or remove language packs from an existing Windows Vista image. The ImageX command-line utility is run from the command prompt or from the Windows Preinstallation Environment (PE) and is used to capture a volume image to a Windows Imaging (WIM) Format file.


The INTLCFG.EXE utility will not help you add language packs to or remove language packs from an existing Windows Vista image. When you add or remove language packs to an existing Windows image, you use the INTLCFG.EXE utility to recreate the LANG.INI file. This file includes the list of available language packs included in a Windows image.
