Exception calling "Install"


Trying to get a custom packate up and working based off "example". I've taken most of the header, including:


(I've got more obviously). I packaged up successfully and have been running my package. After two reboots, I'm seeing the following exception:

Probably related, I then manually ran Windows Update and the dialog indicated that the version of Windows Update needed to be upgraded. So perhaps the older version has a different API?

I manually completed the windows update and removed this Install-WindowsUpdate call from my script (probably makes more sense to run it after I have installed everything I need)

Great tool BTW, will save me hours in setting up VMs (I hope!)

Fixed in Boxstarter.WinConfig v1.0. Install-WindowsUpdate now takes a -AcceptEula switch.

That error code indicates a eula that has not been accepted. Looks like the API does allow you to accept eulas. I should add a switch argument allowing users to pass -AcceptEulas and then accept these.

Thanks for reporting!
