I downloaded the get/set computer name zip file and extracted it.  The error message when deploying my image is "system cannot find the file specified".

Thanks again for your help!

  • I found another article -- http://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/article/how-to-rename-a-computer-and-join-it-to-a-windows-domain-image-deployment -- but I don't know what to change the code to so that it prompts the user for a name. This one works if you want an arbitrary computer name.

Verify that you are using the correct architecture. There is also a flag that can be used to prompt if there was no Get action. 

Set Computername is the one that would prompt for the new name.

  • So does this mean that I don't need the Get action if Set prompts the user for a name?

in my case, i have installed some computer in x64 architecture, so i have downloaded Set/GetCOmputerName_x64.

tab installation plan : run preinstallation tasks

i have applied this exe file on preinstallation tasks (runtime k2000 boot environment - windows) with command line : GetComputerName_x64.exe /dialog

: run script installation - run mid-level tasks

add on post installation (runtime k2000 boot environment - windows) : command line SetComputerName_x64.exe

it work for me, hope to help you

  • Thanks, rollerinvinh, I will try your suggestion. I initially had start /wait getcomputername_x64.exe /dialog in the Command Line box.
