Windows 10 Sysprep Issues

Last Modified: 2016-08-22
I am trying to create an image with Windows 10 Education and am having problems with Sysprep.  I ran these commands prior to running Sysprep:

Get-AppxPackage | % {if (!($_.IsFramework -or $_.PublisherId -eq "cw5n1h2txyewy")) {$_}} | Remove-AppxPackage

Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -online | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online  

After running sysprep I get these errors from the log in setupact under Panther:

2016-08-18 08:49:14, Error                 SYSPRP Package Microsoft.Messaging_3.19.1001.0_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe was installed for a user, but not provisioned for all users. This package will not function properly in the sysprep image.
