  • Support for XP has ended. Direct your XP clients to Windows Update.

    No need to install it for Windows 7. It is part of Windows starting from Windows Vista.

  • Hi Aziz - Question for you: Were you ever able to either i) complete the Windows 7 upgrade from XP WITHOUT the Image Mastering API V2 (per Sheng's comment below), or ii) subsequent to your question actually locate it and use it to complete the upgrade?

    I can find the download that goes with a 64-bit XP version (I have the 32-bit version), and the one that goes with 32-bit Windows Server 2003 (which obviously does me no good) - but not the one that would work with my 32-bit XP.

    Many thanks in advance for any input!

  • Hi Aziz,

    Did you look under the "Windows Feature Pack for Storage 1.0?"  There are IMAPI v2 downloads there.

    Hope this helps,
