RunAsynchronousCommand

RunAsynchronousCommand specifies a single command to run during the windowsPE configuration pass.

To run services or commands that can start at the same time, use asynchronous commands. To run commands that need to finish before other commands can start, use RunSynchronousCommand instead.

All RunAsynchronous commands run in the system context.
