Win 7 Unattend UAC

I am trying to modify my Windows 7 unattend to turn off UAC on first login, has anyone got an example of this that they know works. I have tried several things, so far no luck. Thanks

You can use a script and the RunOnce key for this. You can also modify local security policy (not sure if this can be done prior to sealing an image for unattended deployment) or use Group Policy to do it for you.

Since you are using an unattended installation I guess you are using an answer (xml) file for your settings.
Add component “x86_Microsoft-Windows-LUA-Settings_6.1.x” to your answer file and sett EnableLUA to false.

I have found several versions of XML stuff that will turn UAC off but they all return errors during install. I am sure it's possible that my syntax is off, if someone could post an example script I would really appreciate it. I need UAC off to run a postinstall task that renames and joins domain. Thanks

The easiest way is to do this in “Windows System Image Manager” that’s included with WAIK. It’s also possible to validate your answer file from the same application, but if you want to edit the xml file then add this to the end of file, but before the line with "</unattend>".

<settings pass="offlineServicing">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-LUA-Settings" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<EnableLUA>false</EnableLUA>
</component>
</settings>

Could I change just the processorArchitecture info to make this apply to 64?

I have not deployed x64 version of Windows 7, but the only difference I can see is this: processorArchitecture="amd64".
