VMware image customization is in progress on VM Reboot Server 2012

To remove this, you will need to remove the line SysprepDecrypt from the registry.

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\

VMware Image Customisation2

 

VMware Image Customisation3

Delete SysprepDecrypter.exe

VMware Image Customisation4

Save and reboot.

  1. I ran into this today. I think one of our guys didn’t let the customization spec finish completely.

    Thanks for this post. It really helped me out today.
