Hey there.

I'm trying to build a Windows 10 x64 9926 unattended setup but I can't find a way to correctly configure Winreducer post install. For instance, if I select Adobe Reader installer, Winreducer add it to WinreducePI and its path to winreducepi.cmd but nothing happens after Windows is installed.

Where can I find an updated guided about how to do this?

hey

you need to put at the post install script after the adobe.exe a silent switch like :


AdobeReaderInstallFile.exe /sAll /rs /l /msi "/qb-! /norestart ALLUSERS=1 EULA_ACCEPT=YES SUPPRESS_APP_LAUNCH=YES"

so it will be installed automatically

everything about switches you can find here:

EDIT:

without a switch the installer will be only executed and the user (you) would normally need to install it manually. a switch "configures" the installer and the installation will be done automatically

Thanks but what I don't understand is why not even installer is being executed at all, seems like Windows is ignoring WinreducePI.cmd.

hmm for windows 7 it works.

maybe microsoft changed something so it does not work in windows 10 .

maybe someone other has tested it ?

I redone the process and it works, at least in VMWare.
I'll test in a 'real' install in a few minutes.

I worked perfectly now. 
Is there a way to make the installers run before the full desktop is shown, just like Windows 7 First Logon Commands?

Hello,

Thanks for your report !

Yes, you could try to use the $OEM$ method, which is also integrated in WinReducer, but you need to create all files and folders manually. You could find many tutorials on Internet.

There is also an alternative method, you could use the unattended file to launch your software. And like OEM method, you need to do it manually, at least until I will add this possibility ... Wink

Have a good day !

I'm pretty used with  the unattended method but seems MS changed a few things in it since Windows 8. Looks like the aren't executed if UAC is disabled. 

Case I may ask, how WinReducerPI.cmd is launched?
