  • Hi,

    Some 3 third party software might achieve this, but apologize that we don't support this.

    Regarding to GUI APP, we need to use a cmdline to launch the APP, not click a icon to launch the app, we don't have GUI WinPE because we're unable to make Win PE like a normal operation system (such as Windows 7)via offical way, it's command line environment, anyway, glad to know that you've found an alternative way to solve this issue.

  • Hi,

    I'm afraid that it's a hard project to create a GUI for WinPE, it's a small core operation system, runs the Windows command line environment, what we can do is adding some optional components or apps.
