    Import Custom Default App Associations for New Users


    Hi, thank you for this awesome guide.
    I have a question.
    I need to integrate in the unattend file a batch file which contain the following comand:
    dism /online /Import-DefaultAppAssociations: "%UserProfile%\Desktop\MyDefaultAppAssociations.xml
    to import custom default app associations for the new users.
    What is the best way to do it?

    Thank you, but I am still having the issue where it doesn't automatically create the partition. It sits there, waiting for me to create the partition.

    Please note that the workstation(s) are/will be configured with UEFI and Secure Boot enabled. Secure Boot warns me that the flash drive that I've configured does not have a Signature, I hope that can also be addressed.

    for Janothin:

    here is my tested and working part for your "wipe" problem.
    It is configured for UEFI and GPT. Feel free to share and use it!

    Best regards

    @Janothin

    pls try it with an unformatted HDD/SSD.
    When thats working well, I think the crypted partion will be the problem.

    I have, unfortunately it's still sitting on the partition section. I appreciate your help!

    Update: It seems to create Disk 0 partition 1 and gets stuck.

    Please ZIP both autounattend.xml and unattend.xml files and attach the ZIP file to a post here. I will check the files.

    This is the answer file for Windows Setup. I've had no issues with the xml file for installation Windows 10 but I'll get that shortly.

    I see no attached ZIP file. Your previous post only contained an extract of autounattend.xml. If you want us to assist you, please do as told and post the Zipped answer files here.

    I keep getting Setting ShowWindowsLive is deprecated in the Windows image Components/specialize/amd64_Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup_neutral/ShowWindowsLive , can I delete this ? Will this keep the unattend.xml from working? John

    Do I have to create a new autounattend with each new version? If I create one for 1709 can I use it with 1803?
    Sorry for delayed reply, I somehow missed this post.

    Yes, you can re-use answer files. I am still using both autounattend.xml and unattend.xml made for 1703 to install 1803.
