    Answer file with FolderLocations set generates an error upon install


    I am installing Windows 10 IoT 1809 with an AutoUnattend.xml which installs the OS and my application successfully However when I try to set FolderLocations to D:\ProgramData and d:\Users I get an error dialog "Why did my PC restart". When I click next it just returns to this dialog.

    Problem with Windows 10 unattended answer file?

    Hej Ken. Din svarfil antyder att du är också en Finlandsvensk. Välkommen till Ten Forums!

    Hi Ken. Your answer file suggests that you are a fellow Finland Swede. Welcome to Ten Forums!


    That error is because there's no generic product key or MAK key in your answer file. It is obligatory in autounattend.xml answer file, the one that takes care of first phase of Windows setup, partitioning and installing.

    Please see step 3.9 in following tutorial for how to add key in answer file: Create media for automated unattended install of Windows 10

    List the EXACT "blah, blah" you mention, here please... for ALL installation cases!

    (Sound like a possible "DLL-Hell" issue, but "Windows File Protection" &/or "System File Protection" should have countered for this... no biggie, there's ways around that too!)

    *Smile Answer file with FolderLocations set generates an error upon install :)

    * I have to 'step-out' now, but imo, this is the track to pursue here, & we will when I get back... so, please list that data I request!

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    I want to be able to generate a .txt file that lists all the files and folders in a specific folder on my PC, but don't know the name of any programs that do that. Searched on google a bit and came up with this guide, but it's for XP and I can't seem to find some of the folder options to modify the .bat file. Any suggestions? Thanks

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/file_list_generator.htm

    EDIT: The .bat file will do what I want if it is in the folder I want to do it in, but the option I want to add is having the right click option that it shows.
