    guiRunOnce not working

    GalNeb Enthusiast

      I am trying to script a VMware Converter job using the converter Enterprise 4.0.1.  Everything is working except the guiRunOnce that I am trying to use to install some software post conversion.  I have the autologon turned on with a count of 1 and it is working fine.  But no RunOnce.

       

      I turned off the power on option so that I can look at the disk by mounting it to another VM.  I dug into the deployPkg.cab file and found that the GuiRunOnce section of the sysprep.inf file has not been populated.  The rest of the sysprep.inf file is perfect.  It is here (with proprietary data changed):

       

      AdminPassword=*

      AutoLogon=Yes

      AutoLogonCount=1

      OEMSkipRegional=1

      OemSkipWelcome=1

      TimeZone=35

       

      JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP

       

      AutoMode=PerServer

      AutoUsers=5

       

      Networking

      InstallDefaultComponents=Yes

       

      InstallFilesPath=\sysprep\i386

      OemSkipEula=Yes

       

      ComputerName=vCenter30

      FullName=VMuser

      OrgName=VMUser

      ProductKey=xxxxx-xxxxx-etc

       

       

       

       

      The sysprep section of the job.xml file is:

       

       

       

      If anyone can find anything wrong with this, let me know, otherwise, I think I have found a bug. 

       

      I am using the Enterprise/vCenter Integrated version of VMware Converter per it's V2PInput.xsd file.

       

      On a related note, in the V2PInput.xsd file for the Standalone version of VMware Converter, the guiRunOnce element has been remarked out as though it is not supported any longer.  As you can see above, it is still in the Integrated Version and is being parsed.
