We use a batch file with the following content to activate our windows domain computer after imaging:

slmgr.vbs -ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
slmgr -ato

This works well, but there is a problem: after each command a dialog box appears and the file does not continue until you closed it.

Is there a way to supress the dialog boxes? (on success, not on error). A way so that at least both commands are executed without user intervention would be fine too (it gets boring to walk past 50+ computer and pressing enter on each of them)

Try 'start slmgr -ato' in your batch file

Calling via cscript also works

cscript C:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /ato
