Today’s blog will cover an issue we have seen with Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010. You may see one or more of the following error messages when generating or updating boot images and other actions in MDT that involve the Lite Touch Images:
You can also run into errors when Windows System Image Manager tries to catalog an image. This issue can occur because we are finding an incorrect version of WIMGAPI.DLL first in the path
Steps to Resolve
At a command run the following command
For the first location listed in the page verify that the .DLL Version is correct. If MDT 2010 is installed on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 you should see wimgapi.dll in two locations because it ships with the operating system and with the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK).
C:\windows\system32\wimgapi.dll C:\program files\windows imaging\wimgapi.dll
Both versions should be 6.1.7600.16385. The version could be later than this if any updates have shipped that replace this file at a later date

I had encountered this issue while trying to run MDT using my Domain User account (Slight over sight on my behalf). I ran MDT as my Domain Admin account which allowed the boot image update to complete.
I have this issue but i my solution was clean my temp. %temp%
Old post, but command prompt and use, "where"? I never heard of a "where" command. Can you please elaborate?
Belay my last. I thought this was for Windows XP.
Too bad... didn't help for me. neither did cleaning the %temp% folder. Any suggestions would be very welcome!
