error when deploying Windows Server 2012 R2


Recommended Posts


I installed a VM running Windows Server 2012 R2 and captured an image using the Smartdeploy Capture Wizard.

When I deploy the image I receive an error:

The .WIM file you have selected does not appear to

have been created with the Smartdeploy Capture

Wizard and cannot be processed. Please select a .WIM

file that was created using the Smartdeploy Capture


Any suggestions?

Hi Maarten,

We have seen this if the user has anti-virus on their image, or on there host. Please remove the anti-virus on your image, and disable any anti-virus on your host and recapture/deploy and let us know the results.
