VB.Net >Dialogue box issues under WinPE RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have an .Net application (framwork 4.0) that includes a Open File Dialogue box which is not working under winPE. Winpe has full support of the .net framwork and I am sure that there is no mismatch of application architecture (32 or 64 bit).

    Here is screenshot.!AmKHoIKnhTjC4WC77l7Y84-HVg1P 

    Any suggestion will be appreciated.

  • Hi,

    I have almost no knowledge about Windows PE, but I hope your will show [Detail] of the message or handle the exception and show an exception message.

  • Hi -OSD-,

    By my search, this is a limitation of WinPE.  The File Dialog boxes rely on Explorer which is not part of WinPE so there is no workaround right now.

    You can get it from this link:

    Hope it is helpful to you.
