Windows 10 1703: Stop apps re-installing when deploying the feature update
The Windows apps are overwritten when 1703 feature is installed. This means we have to identify the new apps and update our scripts to remove unwanted apps (again). We were told this was being looked into and would not happen after 1607. https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/mniehaus/2016/08/23/windows-10-1607-keeping-apps-from-coming-back-when-deploying-the-feature-update/
Moving between the 1507-1703 branches each Feature upgrade would reinstall the Appx Applications that you previously removed. I have worked out how to address this with SetupConfig.ini
This is really annoying for Enterprise versions/environment! Please Microsoft stop pushing consumer apps.
Well it looks like after 1703 the apps stay as they were, not as part of the 1703 upgrade
So one last round of powershell….
