Windows Could Not Parse Or Process Unattended Answer File

Recommended Posts

Problem: During the Sysprep phase of a Windows 7 deployment you receive the error: "Windows could not parse or process the unattended answer file for pass [specialize]. The settings specified in the answer file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup]."

Resolution: This is generally caused by a mistyped Windows 7 product key. Please verify the product key that was entered into the Capture or Deploy Wizard is correct and works with the SKU of Windows 7 you are deploying. If the product key was entered in the Capture Wizard you will need to recreate your image using the correct product key.
