Post Installation Tasks

I have deployed an image from Kace 2000 which has a set of post installation tasks. Kace dosen't seem to be running the tasks, is there anything i need to check?

Thank you

Do any tasks run at all? Try removing all but one, does that task run? If you have sysprep integration checked and your post installs are .bat files, then you have to have the word call before them so



call start.bat

without the call command it won't come back to the origianl .bat file to finish the rest.

We are also having this issue.

System Image
Windows 7 x86 Image with software installed (has two partitions C: and D:)
sysprep unattend.xml file
sysprep integration checked

Pre-Install Tasks
Upload Inventory
Create Partitions

Post Install
Some other software

When I look at the log for the deployed image I see the line "Failed to complete Successfully", however the machine boots and loads Win7 and autologin as Administrator but does not run and Post Install tasks. I have "call" inserted with the batch files .

I also see the "Failed to complete Successfully" without any Post install tasks

If I remove the Pre-Install tasks as well I see the message "Completed Successfully" but Post Install tasks don't get the chance to run as the machine does not get past the "Starting Services" screen.

What is the problem?

This is the part of the log without pre-install tasks
