You should be able to use the GUIRunOnce section of sysprep.inf

Example, you want to execute C:\Windows\app1.exe
Use something like:

[GUIRunOnce]
; Once the computer has rebooted and we log in, execute these commands
;
Command0="C:\WINDOWS\app1.exe"

You should be able to run multiple commands by using Command1, Command2, etc.
Or you could run a batch file that runs multiple commands.

Another options is the cmdlines.txt file. Details here:

This will run the command earlier in the Windows installation, so certain features and tools may not be loaded (like network connections), and only some dos commands are available.

Hi,

The GuiRunOnce in Windows XP is equivalent to SynchronousCommand in Windows Vista or later.
Please follow the link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766494%28WS.10%29.aspx

OK finally foud the solutino which is for windwos 7
On the PC you are going to be running sysprep on, you need to create a folder called scripts in this directory: %WINDIR%\Setup\. Now you are going to create a CMD file within the %WINDIR%\Setup\Scripts directory. Right click and make a new text file called SetupComplete.txt. Remove the .txt extension and replace that with .cmd. You now have a SetupComplete.cmd file which windows will read the first time it boots up from the sysprep
