RunAsynchronous specifies one or more commands to run during the windowsPE configuration pass.

To run services or commands that can start at the same time, use asynchronous commands. To run commands that need to finish before other commands can start, use RunSynchronous instead.

All RunAsynchronous commands run in the system context.

 

RunAsynchronousCommand

Specifies the path, the order, and the credentials of the command to run asynchronously.

For the list of the supported Windows editions and architectures that this component supports, see Microsoft-Windows-Setup.
