Windows Vista Autounattend.xml problem

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I have the next answer file which works fine, except the final commands which disable UAC in Windows Vista. Maybe those reg.exe commands should be placed in other pass than oobeSystem?
Errors:

I never actually run commands directly from that location, instead I will call a .cmd there.

 

Its hard to tell from your XML format what it could be. Other than Setup tells you that something is wrong. Have you run this XML through validation in WSIM?

 

It could be that your password objects are empty. Do not use empty objects, remove them instead.

Hello,

I modified the answer file like below and all is fine except that the Network Location wizard pops-up asking to select Home, Work or Public location.
