I'm a noob, just created my first BartPE with XPE and made it bootable via USB using peToUSB. All works fine, kudos to all involved in the creation of those programs
I'm now looking at creating my own plugins.
A couple of questions:
1) Let's say I find an application that needs to create temporary or .ini files, maybe in the installation directory or the directory it is run from, and I have no way to tell it to put those files elsewhere. Is the correct procedure to create an autorun command file that copies the entire installation files from X: into B: (the ramdisk) and then change all shortcuts/links and registry settings to reference the ramdrive instead? (I'm assuming BartPE doesn't copy things to ramdisk and run from there by default)
2) I'd like to make the USB stick write protected so that no changes can be made when booting from it. Can I do that simply by marking the files on the USB stick read only? BTW I tried using Bart's pe2usb with the 2 files from the W2003 distribution with no success, the peToUSB utility however works fine.
