DeepFreeze Workstation Seed as Post Install Task?


I'm fairly new to KACE scripting. I'm having a bit of trouble with installing the Deepfreeze Workstation seed as a post install script. Right now, after a computer gets imaged, we manually install the seed, then go to the DF server and apply the config from there. This is what I'm trying to use now. Trying this, is causing a install loop to happen. Any help is appreciated.

if you deepfreeze your computer during the installation with the SDA you need to keep one thing in mind:
it freezes the state at the time it is installed.
And in this state a registry key says that still other tasks needs to be done.
Therefore it installs the next task(s), reboots and the booting version has a status where additional tasks need to be done.

There is no real solution for that by default.
The smartest way would be a copy task, which copies the application installer to a location on the client and as last task in the KACE setting a Runonce-Marker to run the installer after the last reboot, when the installation is done.
Something like:
1. copy the installer to c:\post_post_install\
2. Set the registry key HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Window\CurrentVersion\RunOnce to "c:\post_post_install\DF9.3_Seed.exe /Install /Seed"
and you are done.
