How to agree after disagreeing with a Vista license
August 9, 2007 1:44 PM   Subscribe

Does anyone know the name or possible directory of the "Set Up Windows" license agreement program that runs when you first turn on a new Vista Business ed. machine (Dell)?

I didn't fill it out because I hadn't plugged in the Bluetooth keyboard/mouse yet. I shut the machine down to take care of that (!), and when I power it up I get a message stating that the install could not be completed. Machine restarts itself and gives the message again.

I have access to command line in this dialog, I guess to repair the install, so I figure I can just run this EULA thing if I can find it.

Tried repairing the install, but it just brings me back to this point. I could reinstall Vista, but this would be much simpler.

I'm not certain to be honest, but it might be worth looking for msoobe.exe, or the oobe folder and running any executable files you find in there.

oobe = Out Of Box Experience

Which I assume is when you take your PC out of the box!

You might need to just do a full restore. Hopefully Dell sent you a restore cd?
