I hope you can shed some light on what seems to be a tricky task.
We're trying to activate W7 via a Proxy server (as we have no internet access without it) but I'm unsure of the best method to do so.
What I am trying is to set the Proxy as my user which has Internet access. Then trying to activate via "cscript //B "%windir%\system32\slmgr.vbs" /ipk <key>
Firstly, this brings up a dialog box confirming the request, which I do not want as this halts the next step(s). Also, the next command "cscript //B "%windir%\system32\slmgr.vbs" /ato" (minus the quotes!
Finally, this always fails in any event as I don't think the proxy server is actually applied and/or the user specified or the context is wrong at which these commands are applied.
Do I need an autologon as the actual user to do this instead of 'running as' the user? Seems such a simple thing to do, but I can't figure it out. We've tried to allow the required addresses to be allowed from any login, but this appears to have no effect as a user is always prompted for when tried manually, so I'm aware it's not a LANDesk error.
Any hints please?
