Windows SIM was unable to generate a catalog

This problem occurs if you are trying to create a catalog from from an x86 (32 bit) image, on a machine that is running a x64 bit version of the WAIK.

Solution

1. Instead of trying to create a catalog file, you can use the one from the install DVD.

2. You will find the catalog file (with a .clg extension) on the DVD in the sources directory.
