K2000 not setting computername on scripted install server 2012 R2


I'm using 64-bit Get/Set Computername v1.5.5.2 to try to do a scripted install of Windows Server 2012 R2, but the computer name I enter in the popup box doesn't seem to be getting applied to the server, and so the computer has a randomly generated name <organization name>-<random letters and numbers>

Does this pre/post install task not work for Server 2012 R2? Is there some trick to making it work?

Thanks in advance.

in your answer file for the scripted install make sure you have <computername>*</computername> the set computer name app takes the input from the get app and replaces that line in the script with the name you entered.
