Hi,

   I am trying to find a quick easy way to manually enter the product key into an answer file on Windows Vista so that when I run sysprep the computer is already activated with that specific product key. I have doing this on Windows XP for a while manually editing the oobeinfo.ini file which contains the following:

[Branding]
OEMLogo = "oemlogo.bmp"
OEMName = "My Company Name, LLC"
[Options]
IntroOnly=0
[Version]
ProductKey="XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"

Is it possible to do basically the same thing in Vista by have a standard ini file with this info and manually entering the specific product key for that machine into each ini file?
