Cannot run EXPLORER.EXE from Domain accounts after sysprep
Posted on 2014-02-26
I am using MDT 2013 & WDS on Server 2012 to deploy Windows7 x64. If I run the Sysprep and Capture task sequence and then deploy the image all domain accounts on the system get the following error when ever EXPLORER.EXE is invoked.
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
If I skip the capture and just join it to the domain it works fine. I thought that maybe it had something to do with the Default Profile but existing and newly created local accounts do not exhibit this issue.
Our profiles are redirected to the network. I thought maybe that was an issue but we have an older image built and deployed from MDT 2010 on Server 2K8. Deploying the older image from this server works fine deploying that same image from the 2012 server does not.
The only relevant difference I can see is WinPE. The other server runs an older version. The 2012 server is running the MDT 2013 WinPE (Win8).
My next step is to remove the domain join sequence to see if it makes a difference. After that I will figure out how to build an older version of PE for deployment.
Antivirus is not included in the image.
One other oddity is that I have the big red X through the NIC in the tray but the network is fine.
This is so odd.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
