Windows 7: Kari's "Relocate User folders ...." PDF instructions

27 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1
Kari's "Relocate User folders ...." PDF instructions

Re: Kari's "Relocate User folders ...." PDF instructions, using "new scenario" in subsequent Post #22, for use "AFTER Windows is already installed:"
Basic question 1: can all this be done on a computer where the Windows 7 has not yet been RE-ACTIVATED?
[ I have yet to "fight" with MS to be able to re-activate a rebuilt computer which sports a new motherboard, SSD, and HDD]

Question 2: Why am I stalled?
All OK up to Kari's instruction (pg 6): Sysprep.exe /audit /reboot /unattend:\relocate.xml which I have modified to: Sysprep.exe /audit /reboot /unattend:E:\RELOCATION TEXT, MODIFIED.XML

When I enter this, I get the following on a small screen:
<< Usage: sysprep.exe /quiet /generalize /audit | /oobe /reboot | shutdown | /quit /unattend:<FILENAME>
If no command-line arguments are provided, a graphical user interface is used to select the desired mode of sysprep operation >>

When I click "OK" it goes back to the Command Prompt, but does nothing more.
