RunSynchronous specifies one or more commands to run during the windowsPE configuration pass.

Synchronous commands start in the order that you specify in the unattended installation answer file, and each command must finish before the next command starts.

To start a command that needs to finish before other commands can start, use synchronous commands. To run services or commands that can start at the same time, use RunAsynchronous instead. RunSynchronous commands always run before RunAsynchronous commands in the same pass.

All RunSynchronous commands run in the system context.

 

RunSynchronousCommand

Specifies the path, the order, and the credentials of the command to run synchronously.

For the list of the supported Windows editions and architectures that this component supports, see Microsoft-Windows-Setup.

The following XML output shows how to set synchronous commands.

<RunSynchronous>
   <!-- First synchronous command to run -->
   <RunSynchronousCommand>
      <Order>1</Order>
      <Path>\\MyNetworkShare\MyApplication.exe</Path>
      <Description>DescriptionOfMyApplication</Description>
      <Credentials>
         <Domain>FabrikamDomain</Domain>
         <UserName>MyUserName</UserName>
         <Password>MyPassword</Password>
      </Credentials>
   </RunSynchronousCommand>
<!-- Second synchronous command to run -->
   <RunSynchronousCommand>
      <Order>2</Order>
      <Path>C:\AnotherApplication.exe</Path>
      <Description>DescriptionOfMyApplication</Description>
   </RunSynchronousCommand>
</RunSynchronous>
