Windows 10 Sysprep issues

After reading numerous Windows 8(.1) and Windows 10 Sysprep help sites, nothing has helped.
All apps suggested have been removed including VC Redist 2010 and even 2013 since the setuperr.log points to it (2010 x86) but it still fails.

The most obvious line in the errors is:
Error SYSPRP Package Microsoft.VCLibs.120.00_12.0.21005.1_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe was installed for a user, but not provisioned for all users. This package will not function properly in the sysprep image.

However I cannot remove this package either through PowerShell (doesn't show as installed) or in Add/Remove Programs.

Does anyone else have any ideas or has struck this?

The install is a fresh Windows 10 Education Final release.

Error logs attached.

Sysprep is not be used on upgrade installation types. Run Sysprep only on clean installations.

That should have read: You need to start fresh, wipe the drive and create a fresh installation, add only the compatible applications necessary and then return the system to its audit state. Then create the image.
The install was done from a blank disk (diskpart > select disk 0 > clean)
The Audit state works fine.
I can try with another PC by doing the same thing but I suspect that the same issue may occur :/
Did you visit and read the links I gave you?
The first one I had looked at from a different posting but the 2nd one (tiledatamodelsvc) I may have another look into. It looks quite plausible!
The solution listed at did fix the issue.
However to note, the service is called "Tile Data Model Server". I assume in the website above it's a RC version naming.
