  1. Hi everyone, I've run into an error with something that I'm not able to understand and fix over the past few days. This error has been driving me crazy and I've tried almost everything available on the web, nothing has worked. Here is the problem. I've a SetupComplete.cmd script under this location D:\RemoteInstall\Images\WIN 7\install\$OEM$\$$\Setup\Scripts. This script maps a network drive and then run another script to install bunch of apps silently. This was working fine until few days back it started giving out an error "windows cannot find the "blah blah (apps). Make sure your name is typed correctly and so on. I tried everything from running anti-virus, malware, checking environment variables, cmd.exe inside system32 folder, you name it, none of it worked. I then re-install Server 2012, tried all over again, same result. Script runs at the FirstLogon in unattended install but fails with the same error. So, what I did, I ran the SetupComplete.cmd both as an Adminstrator and as a user to see if it run and does what it suppose to do, it ran but it threw up a different error directly from the server. What I found weird in the script is that it adds one extra Apps folder name into \\10.8.8.3\Apps\Apps when it should be just one Apps folder as it was before few days back. When I open up the SetupComplete.cmd, it only shows one Apps folder, but when I run it, it shows two Apps folders. This is where the problem is because an extra Apps folder preventing the apps to install silently. I'm not able to understand how this extra Apps is shows up when running the script. I even deleted and re-created a new SetupComplete.cmd script and also the file Script.bat which contains all the switches to install the apps silently. It didn't work. Attached is the screenshot of the error. Can someone please tell me what's going on with this and the solution to fix it? I'm really tired searching for solution online. Looking forward to hear from someone. Thanks
  2. Hi GreenEnvy, Can you please help me out? I followed the same procedure as you have to have the apps installed during the unattended install. The only thing I did is added a FirstLogonCommands under OOBE pass and point the path to my network share where setupcompletec.cmd and Apps.batch script is located. I tried this and it threw up error message as you can above. Then I changed the commandline from "cmd /C start /wait E:\RemoteInstall\Images\Windows8\install\$OEM$\$$\Setup\Scripts\SetupComplete.cmd" to this \\WDS-DEP-SERV\E\RemoteInstall\Images\Windows8\install\$OEM$\$$\Setup\Scripts\SetupComplete.cmd but it didn't not even run. Do I have to pass any command parameters anywhere inside my unattend XML file, so the client can pull the script and run it from the network share during unattend install. I'm really having a hard time with this. Could you please shed some light? How do you have it in your unattend xml file? Hope to hear from you soon! <FirstLogonCommands> <SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add"> <CommandLine>cmd /C start /wait E:\RemoteInstall\Images\Windows8\install\$OEM$\$$\Setup\Scripts\SetupComplete.cmd</CommandLine> <Description>Various Apps Installation</Description> <Order>1</Order> < RequiresUserInput>false</RequiresUserInput> </SynchronousCommand> </FirstLogonCommands

  4. Hi, I ran into an error when my script "SetupComplete.cmd" failed to run from network share right before the fist login. Script is on my WDS server. Attached is my error message during unattend install. Can someone please take a look at my unattend XML file and see why it didn't execute it? <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings

  5. Hi GreenEnvy, Thanks for clarifying. Could u clarify further on something I didn't get in your xml? Wouldn't u suppose to map your apps batch file by using some command paramets in your unattend XML file? How would XML file pull apps from the shared folder unless u mention it in XML? Also, can you share complete unattend XML file here so I can take a look to see if I could change anything in mine? Thanks
  6. Hi GreenEnvy, Thanks for replying back. I'm sorry but I'm still confused over what you explained regarding scripts folder. Are you talking about those folders on my network share which happens to be my only Domain controller with DNS, WDS, DHCP and AD roles. I just checked inside my E drive which is a partitioned drive, this is where I've RemoteInstall, DeploymentShare and Distribution Folders along with other folders. Under DeploymentShare, I found "$OEM$" folder which is empty and "Scripts" folder which has some scripts in it. Under Distribution, I found "$OEM$ Folders" which is empty and there is no script folder there. I can't find the long path to the scripts folder you mentioned above. I hope you weren't telling me that scripts folder path on the client that is going to be my Windows 8 machine. Also, please check my unattend xml, SetupComplete and Apps files to make sure that there is not mistake in them. Anything you feel like needs to be changed in any of these files, please make suggestions. Have you been able to find a solution to get drivers inside your unattended installation? I know you were having problems with them as you said they never work for you. As far as the keys goes, I'm using KVS Default key from MSDN site for Windows 8.1 Pro. Hope that won't cause any setupcomplete issue. One last thing, I've used net use E as a drive to map instead of Z since I've got my Apps inside E drive on my server. Not sure if it has to be same drive letter as where you got your apps or scripts or it could be any other drive letter to map. If you could shed some light on it too. Thanks in advance. Sorry for the long write up, but I searched a lot and found what I was looking for here since I've almost got a same setup as yours. Please do reply back with the answers. ?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="specialize"> <component

  7. Guys, Can someone please reply on my post above with little explanation how the apps are pulled in during unattend installation from the network share via SetupComplete.cmd or whatever is mentioned up there? It's just that I've a same setup and the only thing is missing in my unattend installation is the ability to install apps or drivers from the network share. I'll appreciate if someone can walk me through this process. Thanks Mian
  8. Hi GreenEvny, First of all, thanks for posting such a great post, which somewhat helped me in my Windows 8.1 unattended installation. Though, I'm little bit confused over some parameters inside your unattended xm file regarding Apps installation from the network share. At the bottom of your unattended xml file, you have the following: <component name="Microsoft-Windows-PnpCustomizationsNonWinPE" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.micro...nfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/20...Schema-instance"> <DriverPaths> <PathAndCredentials wcm:action="add" wcm:keyValue="3345678"> <Credentials> <Domain>MyCompany</Domain> <Password>banana</Password> <Username>pxeuser</Username> </Credentials> <Path>\\10.2.0.30\Apps\Drivers</Path> </PathAndCredentials> </DriverPaths> </component> What I'm confused about is the path? It's pointing to your server and then up to the drivers folder where I believe your have "InstallWin8apps.bat". Then in your Setupcomplete.cmd, you added the following: net use z: \\srv-updates\apps /user:mycompany\pxeuser bannana z:\InstallWin8apps.bat My question is why your network drive is not mapped up to \\srv-updates\Apps\Drivers as opposed to net use z:\\srv-updates\apps due to the reason that you mentioned this in your path "<Path>\\10.2.0.30\Apps\Drivers</Path>". Isn't your mapped folder on the network suppose to be same as you mentioned in the Path location? I've got a same setup as yours and I need to have my client pulled the apps from the network share during unattended installation like you did, but I'm confused about all that. Could you please shed some light on this particular settings in details for me to implement it. Just so you know, I myself was using Synchronouscommands settings one by one in my unattended file to execute the apps from the server which makes it little bit disorganized. I like the way you did, but please explain me little so I can understand these things before implementing myself. Hope to hear from you. Thanks

At the bottom of your unattended xml file, you have the following: <component name="Microsoft-Windows-PnpCustomizationsNonWinPE" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <DriverPaths> <PathAndCredentials wcm:action="add" wcm:keyValue="3345678"> <Credentials> <Domain>MyCompany</Domain> <Password>banana</Password> <Username>pxeuser</Username> </Credentials> <Path>\\10.2.0.30\Apps\Drivers</Path> </PathAndCredentials> </DriverPaths> </component> What I'm confused about is the path? It's pointing to your server and then up to the drivers folder where I believe your have "InstallWin8apps.bat". Then in your Setupcomplete.cmd, you added the following: net use z: \\srv-updates\apps /user:mycompany\pxeuser bannana z:\InstallWin8apps.bat My question is why your network drive is not mapped up to \\srv-updates\Apps\Drivers as opposed to net use z:\\srv-updates\apps due to the reason that you mentioned this in your path "<Path>\\10.2.0.30\Apps\Drivers</Path>". Isn't your mapped folder on the network suppose to be same as you mentioned in the Path location? I've got a same setup as yours and I need to have my client pulled the apps from the network share during unattended installation like you did, but I'm confused about all that. Could you please shed some light on this particular settings in details for me to implement it. Just so you know, I myself was using Synchronouscommands settings one by one in my unattended file to execute the apps from the server which makes it little bit disorganized. I like the way you did, but please explain me little so I can understand these things before implementing myself. Hope to hear from you. Thanks
