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.
