Updated: October 20, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

By using the 32-bit version of Windows® System Image Manager (Windows SIM), you can create and open catalog (.clg) files for Windows images of all architecture types. You can use the 64-bit versions of Windows SIM to create catalog files for only 64-bit Windows images. For example, you can use the 64-bit version of Windows SIM to create catalog files for only 64-bit-based Windows images.

After you create a catalog file, you can open catalog files for all Windows image architecture types.

Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) is not a supported platform for Windows SIM.

The following table lists Windows operating systems and the supported list of architecture types on which you can create catalog files for Windows images.
