MDT 2013 (Microsoft Deployment Toolkit) Using Litetouch.vbs does not capture an image.

Our MDT 2013 fails to capture an image, when we run cscript litetouch.vbs, it skips the prompt for the location of the image, and completes.

see below

1. The current Windows 8.1 image Task Sequence can be deployed successfully.
2. The current Windows 10 image Task Sequence can be deployed successfully. (Vanilla Image from WIM Imported ISO)
3. Captures for Windows 8.1 fail.
4. Captures for Windows 10 fail.
5. A new Capture Task Sequence has been created, and also fails.
6. This was working in July 2015, last time an image was captured.
7. Between July 2015 - January 2016, something has broken.
8. Only Windows Updates have been applied to MDT 2013.

We really need a MDT expert, that uses this on a daily basis, to discuss this issue, unless you have seen this issue.

(We've also tried updating to MDT 2013 Update 2, ADK 10, and the issue also remains, so this is something that has changed which causes this!)
