  • The 'LogonCount' element is invalid - The value '0' is invalid according to its datatype 'LogonCountType' - The MinInclusive constraint failed. Components/oobeSystem/amd64_Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup_neutral/AutoLogon/LogonCount
    • I was unaware i could not set that to 0 and then during set autologin count mid level task would not override that.

      Once I changed that setting it addressed the issue i was having.
