***Article Formally Titled: WVD Windows 10 Ent Update to 2004 - ***Alert***

Applies to NFA WVD Only

 

We have found in several tests that the following process performed on your WVD Pool template and/or Golden Image (WVDSH00) has allowed successful deployments of hosts and dedicated WVD instances to Windows 2004 in Nerdio for Azure Environments.   

Here's those steps:

1.  Ensure a backup of the WVD Pool template or Golden Image (WVDSH00) has been taken
2.  Run all updates on the template/Golden Image including the Win10 2004 update and verify there are no pending updates completing by restarting the VM. 
3.  From an elevated command prompt run "winrm quickconfig".  Here's that output:

4.  Reboot VM

5.  Shutdown the template/Golden Image via the NAP to set as image 

Your image should now have the Win10 2004 update installed

 

Please note that there have been some known sysprep errors regarding Microsoft packages and the 2004 update.  Please see this thread for details if you run into a sysprep error setting your image:

     # Modern UI Dialog-App for entering Japanese Characters
     InputApp=0

     # App to project the Screen to a Wireless Display
     Microsoft.PPIProjection=0

     # Cortana
     Microsoft.Windows.Cortana=0

3.  Run the AppxDBEditor.cmd
    -  "M" is the option to modify these packages

4. Open a powershell command line as administrator
5. Run each of the following to remove the packages:
