SYMPTOMS

When you try to create a Windows Vista-based Windows Imaging Format (WIM) build in Microsoft Solution Accelerator for Business Desktop Deployment (BDD), you may receive the following error message:
Error during wizard processing
An unexpected error occurred while processing the wizard results.
Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute.
You cannot create the WIM build.

This problem occurs if you have added components such as a hotfix or an update to the WIM image file.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because Windows Vista cannot update the answer file when you add some components to the WIM image file.

Sometimes, a component that you add to the WIM image file may have the same name and version as a component that is already in the file. However, when the VersionScopes attribute of the new component differs from that of the existing component, the Windows System Image Manager Component Platform Interface API (WSIM CPI API) may incorrectly determine that these components do not match. Therefore, the WSIM CPI API cannot update the answer file. Instead, the WSIM CPI API generates an error.

For example, if you add update 933566 to the WIM image file, two IE-InternetExplorer components coexist in the file. These components have similar versions (6.0.6000.16473 and 6.0.6000.20583). However, the components' VersionScopes attributes are different. One is nonSxS, and the other is NonSxS.

Installation information

Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

The hotfix is packaged as a .cab file that is not automatically installed. You have to double-click the .cab file and extract the DLL files from the package.

To apply the hotfix, follow these steps:
  1. Replace the Microsoft.ComponentStudio.ComponetPlatformsInterface.dll file in both of the following folders with the .dll file that you extract from the package:
    • %systemdrive%\Program Files\BDD 2007\bin
    • %systemdrive%\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\ImgMgr
    Note The folders may be different if you installed WAIK or BDD to non-standard locations. In this situation, use the path of the folder to which you installed the software. Make sure that the file name is correctly capitalized.
  2. Start Registry Editor.
  3. Locate the
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ComponentStudio\
    registry subkey.
  4. Right-click this registry subkey, point to New, and then click Key.
  5. Type 6.0.6000.20679 to name the new key, and then press ENTER.
  6. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click String Value.
  7. Type ServicingPath to name the new entry, and then press ENTER.
  8. Right-click the ServicingPath registry entry, and then click Modify.
  9. In the Value data box, type Installation_folder \\Windows AIK\\Tools\\Servicing\\, and then click OK.
    Notes
    • The Installation_folder placeholder represents the folder in which Windows AIK is installed.
    • You can also copy the value of the ServicingPath entry in the following registry subkey to the Value data box:
      HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ComponentStudio\6.0.6000.16386
      The two ServicingPath registry entries have the same value.
  10. Exit Registry Editor.
