cmd.exe is a file that comes with WinRescue and is installed in the WinRescue directory during installation. WinRescue is not finding that file and so it gives you that error message. I am not sure why it is looking for that file though during Restore. When I get back to the office, I will look in the code and try to figure out what is happening.
I was able to look in the code. I will fix that in the next version of WinRescue. For now, you can get around that one of two ways. One is to select a different restore option. The other is to look in the WinRescue Vista directory and make sure two files exist: cmd.exe and cmd.pif. Both of these come with WinRescue Vista but something may be removing them on your computer. If they do not exist you can create an empty file and name it that.
