Hello Experts,

We are creating a Windows 7 XML answer file for our deployments. We would like the answer file to disable UAC and the windows firewall. Is there a quick reference guide or code input I need to add inorder to get this working?

Thank You

Code for UAC disable for unattend file
XML Example for

Microsoft-Windows-LUA-Settings

The following XML output specifies that Windows does not notify the user when programs try to install software or make changes to the computer.

<EnableLUA>false</EnableLUA>

You may have to put in the form similar to this below (only an example)

<component name="Microsoft-Windows-LUA-Settingsr" 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>
