I am attempting to create a new master windows 10 WIM file. I am  beginning as I usually do by creating a VM using a master ISO downloaded from our Volume License portal. All goes as normal with one exception the VM auto logs on as me with my credentials from the physical workstation that has VMWorkstation Version on. This gives me no chance to enter Audit mode. I have suspended the VM at several key spots to see where Autologon is enabled and it always indicates that it is unavailable. I also noticed that VMWare tools is getting installed automatically and I wonder if that is the cause. If so I cannot find where to disable the install. I am using Win10 20H2.
