Michael Niehaus' Windows and Office deployment ramblings
One of the challenges with previous versions of the UDI wizard was extensibility. With MDT 2010 Update 1, there was no way to add a new page. With MDT 2012, you could do this by writing C++ and C# code, which at least made it doable, but beyond the capabilities of most organizations. Now with MDT 2012 Update 1, you can build your own pages without writing any code, directly from the UDI Designer.
Here are the basics for doing that:
That’s all there is to it.
Will there be an easier way to create UDI Validators in this release or does this still require C++ code? I want to use web services to check fields against AD.
Sorry, you'll still have to write C++ code to create validators.
Any good examples of C++ code that works with web services out there?

Hi Michael, is there a way I can use the UDI editor in a normal MDT Deployment?
So far I've seen its only in combination with SCCM..
No, sorry, the UDI editor is only for ConfigMgr. You can use the MDT Wizard Editor on CodePlex for the Lite Touch wizard.
I created a custom page with custom images. The page is displayed but the images are marked as "Image not found". I used the images which are already available in the toolkit package. I also copied them into the x64 and x86 folder but it's still not working.
Any suggestions where these images have to be saved and which path has to be entered in the Wizard Designer?
Thanks in advance
So this can only be used with a MDT and SCCm setup, not MDT only?
