Working with Windows 10 Enterprise, fresh image, only extra software is Notepad++, all updates applied.

Now that's out of the way, we are testing Unified Write Filter (UWF), and it almost performs as expected, except for servicing mode.

The TechNet documentation states that after running the 'uwfmgr servicing enable' command and restarting that the uwf servicing account is supposed to auto login and display a screensaver. It does not do this. It reaches the standard login screen, displays UWF-Servicing as the account that is supposed to login, but it stops there.

It does execute everything in the UWF servicing script, but we require it to login and show the servicing screen saver.

And before it's posted as a reply, we have scoured the UWF documentation and have found nothing.

  • I have the same problem with the anniversary edition (1607), autologin stays at the login screen and no screensaver is shown. Did you find any solution yet? – anssi Mar 21 '17 at 6:44

    Back in the Fall I finally got a tier 2 tech at MS. They do not have any current plans to fix that. They do know that it's a bug. but they do not plan on fixing it. – ztnd13 Mar 24 '17 at 20:26
  • Thanks for the info. I have to implement servicing mechinism probably by disabling/enabling the filter since servicing mode is not working. – anssi Mar 29 '17 at 5:49
