I'm messing around with provisioning packages for Windows 10 using USMT and new /apps option to ScanState to minimize amount of software to manually reinstall. However I noticed that in spite of the promises to get all the files outside of OS into a package, I face "expired prerelease software" akin to this upon reinstalling Windows from Recovery Drive, going through OOBE, and starting VS. Same happens if I go straight to Audit mode. So I have to reinstall VS. Is there a way to properly package it into PPKG?

I tried to run plain dumb

scanstate /apps /ppkg c:\recovery\customizations\apps.ppkg

followed by creating Recovery Drive and reinstalling Windows from it.

  • I think this is a question which should be better migrated to serverfault.com because the question is enterprise/business related Aug 28, 2016 at 7:52
  • I'm a home/hobby user in this context. I just want custom Recovery Drive for Windows 10. Otherwise referenced related question also has to go.
