Wanted to see if anyone else has come across this and if they found a solution.  I have a build that is a system image that has been syspreped.  When the build gets to the post install task the windows activation screen comes up.  After a couple of minutes it closes and then starts the post install task.  The very first post install task is to add the key and the build finishes fine.  I'd like to not see the activation screen as it slows the build done.  Any help would be great.

  • This is what I use / do...

    cd "c:\program files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14"

    cscript ospp.vbs /inpkey:Typeinyourofficekeyhere

    cscript ospp.vbs /act

    cscript C:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /ato
  • Do you have this as a post install task? I have the KACE one set to run as the first post install task, but the windows activation screen shows up before the first post task is run.
  • Curious if you've made any progress with this issue? I came here searching for the same problem.
  • I ended up redoing the WIM which reset the count. I update it periodically with the lastest Microsoft updates.
