Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • In an Active Directory domain environment, you deploy Windows 7 or Windows Server R2 to a client computer by using an unattended Windows setup installation.

  • You set the NetworkLocation parameter to Work in the .xml file that you prepare to configure the unattended installation.

  • You log on to the client computer after the unattended installation is complete.

In this scenario, a Set Network Location dialog box appears. If you try to select either of the network locations in the dialog box, you receive the following error message:

Windows could not set the network settings

Note This issue only occurs the first time that you log on to the computer after the unattended installation is complete.

Cause

This issue occurs because of an error in the Pnidui.dll component.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, install the hotfix in the affected client computer. You can also integrate the hotfix into the Install.wim image file on the server before you deploy the unattended Windows setup installation. To do this, refer to the "Steps to integrate this hotfix into the Install.wim image file" section.

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 file information notes


Important Windows 7 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows Server 2008 R2 and for Windows 7" section. MANIFEST files and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.

  5. Add the .cab file to the offline Install.wim image file. To do this, run the following command:

    dism /image:<path of the mount directory> /add-package /Packagepath:<path of the expanded hotfix package>

  6. Commit the changes, and then unmount the Install.wim image file. To do this, run the following command:

    dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:<path of the mount directory> /commit
