RunSynchronous

RunSynchronous specifies one or more commands to run synchronously on the computer. Synchronous commands are executed in the order specified in the unattended installation answer file, and each command must finish before the next command runs.

RunSynchronous commands are always executed before RunAsynchronous commands in the same pass. RunSynchronous commands run in the user context in the auditUser configuration pass and in the system context in the specialize pass.
