Sysprep autologin

Well I'm almost done getting my butt kicked from sysprep :)

I have one issue remaining...  I run a script to autologon to my other admin account on a reboot because for some reason my PC's don't configure all the settings when sysprep logs into the root admin. (i.e. outlook, preferences, etc.)  So I figured I'd just put the cleartext password in there on the sysprep runonce.  I actually have the sysprep launch a .bat file that executes the registry file silently.  But when it restarts it doesn't work and the registry looks like it never was changed :(.  I know the .reg file works.... I tried it after it booted up and worked like a charm.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'm wondering if it's because I'm not executing sysprep from the root admin account that my preferences don't load on that one.

Running a .reg file silently should work.  But never for me :)

I always write the .bat file to call a .vbs that directly writes your reg edits to the registry.

Option Explicit
Dim SysVarReg, Value
Value = "1234567890" <- Your info goes here.
Set SysVarReg = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
SysVarReg.RegWrite "HKLM\Software\AppName\Valuename", Value

Haha hey sleetish...

Yah I was so frustrated that I had the sysprep runonce call it, I had my batch file call it, andddddd I had my vbs call it.  And no dice :(

I'm thinking I need to be running sysprep from the root admin account.... I bet that will fix these issues I'm having... I'm making an image as we speak...
