Sheetal,

If I'm wanting to include this in my WinPE CD, then should I just copy the exe to my windows/system32 and point a shortcut from the start menu?

i have checked with Symantec Antivirus and Microsoft Security Essentials, Snap-Pe is not detected as virus.

Saeed, which antivirus are you using on your machine.

Would be nice, if Snap-PE could support PNG format for saving the screenshots. Currently it only supports JPG, which is not ideal for creating screenshots.
