    Requesting Info on WinPE (Preinstallation Environment)

    I am looking for information about windows PE (Preinstallation Environment). I already know what it is and vaguely how it works, but I require some technical details. Here are my questions:

    - Does windows PE support ATL and does it have access to COM?
    - Do we have access to any Shell API functions within WinPE?

    Thanks you in advance, any suggestions/links/comments/etc are appreciated!


    PS. I asked on the MSDN forums but no one seems to answer. I've had better luck here then on MSDN.

    Thanks for the links, that gives me a nice overview of the system. The only questions that remain are the programming specific ones. I read that MFC/ATL are supported but you must bundle the DLLs yourself because the system does not have them naively. As for a shell, there is no shell per se, so I don't know anything about Shell APIs in this environment...

    Any thoughts?
