Windows 系统映像管理器体系结构Windows System Image Manager Architecture

使用 Windows® 系统映像管理器 (Windows SIM) 创建自动完成 Windows 安装所需的基于 XML 的应答文件。You use Windows® System Image Manager (Windows SIM) to create an XML-based answer file that is required to automate Windows installations.

Windows SIM 使用组件平台接口 (CPI API) 来创建和管理答案文件。Windows SIM uses the Component Platform Interface (CPI API) to create and manage answer files. 组件和特定的 Windows 映像中设置用于创建目录文件。The components and settings in a specific Windows image are used to create a catalog file. 此编录文件用于在 Windows SIM 创建答案文件。This catalog file is used in Windows SIM to create answer files. 有关详细信息,请参阅Windows 映像文件和编录文件概述For more information, see Windows Image Files and Catalog Files Overview.

可以创建一组可选的文件夹,名为分布共享,以存储用于进一步自定义 Windows 安装文件。An optional set of folders, called a distribution share, can be created to store files that you use to further customize your Windows installation. 有关详细信息,请参阅分发共享和配置集概述For more information, see Distribution Shares and Configuration Sets Overview.

Windows SIM 可以创建更小、 更易于移植版本称为配置集的分布共享。Windows SIM can create a smaller, more portable version of a distribution share called a configuration set. 可以更轻松地管理这些较小的文件。These smaller files can be easier to manage.

此外可以使用 CPI API 创建自己的定制的应用程序可以自动创建和管理无人参与 Windows 安装程序答案文件。You can also use the CPI API to create your own customized applications that can automate the creation and management of unattended Windows Setup answer files. 有关详细信息,请参阅 组件平台接口 (CPI) 参考 (CPIAPI.chm)For more information, see the Component Platform Interface (CPI) Reference (CPIAPI.chm).

下图显示了 Windows SIM 的工作方式。The following diagram shows how Windows SIM works.
