    If you are trying to use those old "net user" commands because you are configuring a Windows 2008 R2 installation that just has the Server Core, then you should consider using sconfig.exe instead. This will make using all of those commands very easy in a text-mode to configure your system for deployment.

    the commands have probably been deprecated. Use powershell.
