Hello, I have been trying to get my answer file to copy a wallpaper to the default user profile but it is not working. All other settings I configure in the Administrator profile are being copied. I am installing Windows 7 and configuring a VM manually and making the answer file with WSIM. The answer file is below. Any help would be appreciated.
The unattend.xml in the image should not have CopyProfile to true, the WAIK documentation is incorrect on that point. So don't set it when sysprepping the image. Inject it to the unattend.xml file belonging to the task sequence you use to deploy the image. See my answer (below) to a similar post in the TechNet forums earlier today:
I did some additional tests today, and it didn't matter if I stored the background image inside or outside the admin profile, it still gets copied as long as the copyprofile is set to true. Assuming its the unattend.xml file used when deploying the image (and not the unattend.xml used when sysprep/capturing the image). I also tried one of the default wallpapers, and that worked fine too.
Check your setupact.log file in the C:\Windows\Panther\UnattendGC folder after deploying the image, there should be a few lines saying:
