Cannot get the information about WinFLP.wim image

Post by ohault »

Hello,

I have just noticed that old WIM files are not currently supported by wimlib.

e.g. the WIM file from Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PCs

C:\>wiminfo WinFLP.wim
[ERROR] "C:\Users\OHA\Documents\Testwim\WinFLP.wim": Header size is invalid (96 bytes)
ERROR: Exiting with error code 17:
The WIM header was invalid.

ImageX is able to mount this file and 7-Zip will open the file, see below

As far as I know, the old WIM format was only used in Vista pre-releases. This is the first time anyone has asked for it. So I don't think it's important to add support for it.
