I am new to Kace and unattended installations. I am testing a few post installation tasks after a scripted install of Windows 7 pro. 64bit. The first post task is just a test to install ccleaner using a batch file. It works fine locally so i zipped up the batch file and the exe and uploaded it as a post application install. The second is Office 2010 pro. I created a custom.msp which I placed in the root folder and zipped. It was uploaded as a post application install with the command line "Setup.exe" /adminfile "Custom.msp". The last is Windows 7 SP1, same process as before, uploaded exe with the command line was done automatically with windows6.1-KB976932.exe /quiet /passive /norestart /o /n. The problem is none of the post installations execute. Any advice would be appreciated.

vutech,

I don't see the autologon section of you answer file.

When you created the scripted install did you check the automatically logon to the administrator account?

You should automatically logon, and disable after 2 or 3 boots.

I changed my scripted install to automatically logon. I watched it install and once it was out of windows installation it tried to install SP1 but a window popped up called SPInstall Usage with a list of available switches. It will not go further until you click ok. Then it boots to windows with no other post task executing.

I think that means you have a bad switch for the sp1.

What are you currently using?

You can also do a post install, select windows vista sp2 as the post install, but select the option to upload manually, and upload the windows 7 sp1 file. It works, I tested it :)
