RunAsynchronousCommand

RunAsynchronousCommand specifies a single command to run asynchronously on the computer. Asynchronous commands run in the order specified in the unattended installation answer file, but the system does not wait for one command to finish before it runs the next one. Running a service would be an example of an asynchronous command.

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