Right click bootnow.exe (Win7), Compatibility tab, put a tick in Run this program as an administrator. Then another method Bob could have used is to right click bootnow.exe and create a Shortcut. Right click the Shortcut, Properties, Shortcut tab. In the Target field append this...
Windows 7/run=Daily.tbs

You can have multiple Shortcuts to bootnow.exe. To run different scripts.

Take your pick of the methods.

BOOTNOW works fine with BING. Instead of specifying a script, specify an image set defined in BING. I think you have to also enable BOOTNOW support in BING settings.

I have been using the same version of bootnow for many years and had not noticed that another version was released late last year. I used to make images with bootnow before I switched to IFD. Thank you for the pointer to the readme text. Maybe it is time to update my image creation to using BIBM with scripts.

Thanks a lot,
