RunOnceEX is no longer executed


Recommended Posts

Good morning.
I am struggling with a strange RunOnceEx situation.
I have been using this procedure for years from W7 up to W11 22H2 and it works regularly on both HOST PC and virtual machine, but these days an unexplainable thing happens to me.
When I run this procedure on a newly built pc with Ryzen 9 7950X and still running W11 22H2, the RunOceEx does not run, when I try the same ISO with RunOnceEx on another PC or virtual machine it runs.
I have been going crazy for a few days and can't figure out why and don't know what solution to look for.
Any ideas?
This is the "setupcomplete.cmd" script that I have always uitilized.


@echo off
for %%w IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%w:\sources\install.wim SET CDROM=%%w:

REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx
SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

REG ADD %KEY% /v Flags /t REG_DWORD /d "20" /f

REG ADD %KEY% /V Title /D "Post Installation..." /f  >NUl

REG ADD %KEY%\06 /VE /D "Calculator Legacy" /f  >NUL
REG ADD %KEY%\06 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\Software\Calculator_Legacy_2.0.exe" /f  >NUL

REG ADD %KEY%\07 /VE /D "7-Zip 22.01" /f  >NUL
REG ADD %KEY%\07 /V 1 /D "%CDROM%\Software\7z2201.msi /quiet /norestart" /f  >NUL



Sincerely thank you

Hello @DMD,

I also use a similar script and everything runs smoothly. Maybe you have install.ESD in your sources folder and not install.WIM.

If so, the script will not find the wim file and nothing will be processed.

This is just a hypothesis, it would be up to you to check it.

In my script I use:

for %%i in (C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) do if exist %%i:\sources\install.* set CDROM=%%i:

Good luck!
