Value

Value specifies the value of the Key setting.

The following examples show how the Key and Value settings in the MetaData setting are combined to describe metadata information.

Sample .wim metadata output:

<WIM>
   <IMAGE INDEX="1">
      <NAME>FabrikamWIM</NAME>
      <DESCRIPTION>FabrikamCustomWindowsImage</DESCRIPTION>
   </IMAGE>
</WIM>

The following table shows the Key and Value pairs that should be used to correspond to the metadata in the sample .wim file output.

 

Key Value

/IMAGE/INDEX

1

/IMAGE/NAME

FabrikamWIM

/IMAGE/DESCRIPTION

FabrikamCustomWindowsImage

For more information about how the Key and Value settings are combined, see the MetaData setting.
