Hi all

I'm fairly new to using Kace and I've been working with various bits using the unattend file below for about a month now. I've had no problems with it and I've made no recent changes but this morning when I've used it [just checking a new post installation task] I get this error:

"Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file [C:\Windows\Panther\unattend.xml] for pass [oobeSystem]. The answer file is invalid.".

Now, the one thing I've tried since this happened is removing the oobe parameters "<SkipMachineOOBE>false</SkipMachineOOBE> & <SkipUserOOBE>false</SkipUserOOBE>". This didn't change anything.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

You should not need to add the user Administrator to the Administrators Group as it is already defined as a user. You are simply enabling the Administrator user with Windows 7 and the Unattend.xml

SkipUserOOBE = True
SkipMachineOOBE = False
