Hi All,

I am trying to prepare my windows 7 machines for delpoyment using sysprep and unattend.xml file. I have had some issues joining the machines to the domain so have resorted to using a vb script to do it which works really well, the only problem is I want it to run on first logon or on startup. I have an administrator account (local) on the machine which runs the script fine and I have put into my xml file the following:

                <SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">

under the "Microsoft-windows-Shell-Setup section, however it doesn't run it. Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong?
