Hi,

I have defined within my winnt.sif the name of the user I wish to use. During my unnattended installs this worked fine with my username being created under the administrator profile.
Then I discovered XPlode. After a few weeks, I finally have it running at the T12 stage of setup via the use of cmdlines.txt. I have tried with the 'Add User' syntax in the xml for XPlode and without.
It would now appear that regardless that the username is defined in the winnt.sif, unless I have XPlode create the user it will not be created at all and my username is simply called Administrator.

Thanks in advance

What's your question? :P

Well, I don't know, I used to make my users via batch. I didn't even know that it's possible of creating users via winnt.sif. Oh well, does it really matter, I moved all of my batch, ... to XPlode. :)

Errr, sorry about that. After reading my post again I can understand why you may not know what I'm asking :blushing:
I think I'll let XPlode handle everything anyway like you suggested.
I think it's an awesome program by the way :thumbup
