I am trying to find a working batch or PS to copy files into the windows\syswow64 folder during MDT. All I get is access denied.
I know there's a method to take ownership of the folder, copy the files in and give ownership back to Trusted Installer.

However, is there a one-step method to copy updated files into the syswow64 folder?
One is an OCX which I can register silently but it's not the right one since I can't add anything to the folder.

    Hi,

    ==>However, is there a one-step method to copy updated files into the syswow64 folder?

    Per my experience, you can create an application, and use a batch file as the command for the application which has the multiple xcopy command within it. Similar threads for your reference:
