    sysprep.inf not being used

    What am I doing wrong?

    Ran setupmgr.exe and filled in all the stuff I needed.
    Copied the sysprep folder to the required machine, and ran sysprep.exe.
    Ticked the box for mini setup, and clicked reseal.
    Reboot.

    I then get asked to fill in the things like product key and username again. Which is what the sysprep.inf file is there for.

    Grrr.

    You should create a folder called C:\Sysprep, copy all sysprep files here and include the answer file sysprep.inf in the root of C:\Sysprep. If you have done that, I suspect there may be a problem with the answer file itself.

    Shouldn't Sysprep automatucally create the C:\SYSPREP folder?
    I normally extract Sysprep from the disc I'm using, so yes, that's why I create C:\Sysprep which is then deleted once complete.

    Yeah, I've done all the above, so I'm now playing with various things to see if I can work out what's happened.

    Ok, I have it working now. All unattended, all lovely.

    I have a query though: If I run it once, it runs without issue. However, if I run it again immediately after (with the sysprep.ini file still in the folder) it will ask me for the details like I mentioned in the first post.

    Could anyone explain to me why it does this?

    Ta.
