SCCM 1606 - Deploy Win10 Anniversary update by task sequence

Hi,

We have SCCM 1606, that we have used to deploy Windows 10. Now we want to use SCCM to deploy the anniversary update. But we have experienced that when installing the anniversary update manually, that it resets the start menu, taskbar and the file association.

Is it possible to deploy it by a task sequence and making a backup of the taskbar, startmenu and the file associations? Or is there another way to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Don't create a TS. Just deploy as normal but you have to do some prep work. Niall Brady has done work on this already:

I will add a tip from myitforum about IE11, there's a bug so the shortcut goes missing, The best workaround is:

<tart:DesktopApplicationTile Size="2x2" Column="0" Row="2" DesktopApplicationLinkPath="%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Internet Explorer.lnk" />
