Set WshShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")Set ofs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")strScriptDir = ofs.GetParentFolderName(Wscript.ScriptFullName)strFile = strScriptDir & "\SmallIcon.vbs"WshShell.Run "C:\Windows\System32\cscript.exe " & Chr(34) & strFile & Chr(34)wscript.sleep 2000strFilea = strScriptDir & "\ReStartExploreWin.vbs"WshShell.Run "C:\Windows\System32\cscript.exe " & Chr(34) & strFilea & Chr(34)

--> I try the second solution : have 3 files

File name : REG_RUN.VBS

wscript.exe "c:\vbs\smallicondesktop\invisible.vbs" "c:\vbs\smallicondesktop\iconbur.bat"

File name : Invisible.VBS

CreateObject("Wscript.Shell").Run """" & WScript.Arguments(0) & """", 0, False

File name : IconBur.Bat

@echo off taskkill /im explorer.exe /f reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\1\Desktop" /v IconSize /t REG_DWORD /d 00000032 /f "%windir%\explorer.exe"

With the two solution not work when the automatique installation finish!

I have only windows CLI open!

But when i use it, it work fine!

I try solution with SetupComplete.CMD, it not work to!

I think we should wait for the full automatic configuration of the office to start my three files. would anyone please an idea or solution. thank you in advance

that is writing the launch of the VBS file is just in AutoUnattend.xml?

<settings pass="oobeSystem">


<SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">

<Description>IconSize Desktop</Description>

<CommandLine>cmd /k start "" /wait cscript %SystemDrive%\VBS\SmallIconDeskTop\script1.vbs</CommandLine>





thank you in advance for your answwer

I would use 1 .cmd file and put all your code in it. You can even send output to a file using > operator to see which specific commands are failing. Then reference your .cmd in the FirstLogonCommands.

I presume your scripts work find if you run them manually? For reference, you may be running into a permissions or Session 0 issue.

FirstLogonCommands executes as the logon user (Session 1)

Setupcomplete.cmd executes as the LOCAL SYSTEM (Session 0)

FirstLogonCommands is in the oobeSystem pass. Put all your commands into a .cmd and then have this in your XML:

			<FirstLogonCommands>                <SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">                    <Order>1</Order>                    <Description>Run vbs from cmd</Description>                    <CommandLine>cmd /C start /wait c:\path\FirstLog.cmd</CommandLine>                </SynchronousCommand>            </FirstLogonCommands>
I don't use VBS myself because of security messages. Example of how to put VBS into CMD:

cscript c:\path\RunVBS.VBS
Or use wscript if you want.
