Oobe.xml Technical Reference

Oobe.xml is a content file used to collect text and images for customizing Windows Welcome, Welcome Center, and ISP Signup. To build a single Windows image that contains multiple languages to deliver to more than one country, you can add multiple Oobe.xml files to customize the content based on the language and country/region selections of the customer.


A sample of Oobe.xml is provided with the Windows OPK and Windows AIK in the \Samples directory. These files contain references to the fictitious OEM Fabrikam. To use these samples in a production environment, remove all references to Fabrikam and replace the ancillary files with appropriate information and content for your deployment.
