Windows 10: Media Transfer Protocol Device (MTP Device) support for Windows 10 N Solved

    Media Transfer Protocol Device (MTP Device) support for Windows 10 N

    Hey everyone,

    I'm using Windows 10 N Anniversary Update, the one with no media bloatware like WMP. However I wish my iPhone was accessible with File Explorer to copy photos. It turns out you have to install Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N (KB3133719) to get it working.

    The KB3133719-x64.msu.msu file itself is just around 100 MB. However when you install it it takes ~500 MB of space which is 40 MB more than if you install regular Windows 10 non-N (yes I had to install several virtual machines to figure it).

    This is absolutely not reasonable because the MTP Device drivers included in KB3133719-x64.msu.msu only take up about 3 MB! The works part is the BK3133719 package installation is permanent and you cannot remove it from your N system afterwards with DISM (tried it, Remove-Package returns an error).

    I managed to extract CAB from MSU and extract driver INF & DLL of interest from CAB. However when I try to apply driver to my iPhone in Device Manager (you have to use shift-Restart > Troubleshooting > Advanced > Startup settings to install unsigned driver because driver signature is inherited from extracted CAB, according to Microsoft, sorry can't re-find article) the wizard says the device cannot be added because Device class is missing. Actually, yes, the device class "Portable device" is missing in Windows 10 N.

    So I wonder if anyone could help me to
    1) add "Portable device" class manually to my Windows 10 system (I can get all DLLs from CAB of the KB3133719)
    2) get the Windows-Portable-Device-Package actually out from CAB inside KB3133719-x64.msu.msu and make it install only the driver.

    I already tried editing Media-Feature-Pack MUM (it's found inside CAB, I removed all <update> string lines except Windows-Portable-Device) & making new signed CAT for it (used makecat.exe) then re-packing and re-signing the CAB (yes I installed my custom generated certificate to Trusted Publishers & Trusted root), thanks to this awesome guide. However I get the error (file not found) upon installing signed CAB package to a fresh 10 N virtual machine. When I sign the CAB generated from extracted untouched files everything installs fine. So I assume I do everything right when it comes to signing but there's some double-check somewhere (probably reference to other packages inside Windows-Portable-Device MUM) that I cannot figure out.

    Here's what I'm doing & where I'm stuck:
    1. Download Visual Studio Community 2015:
    Configure Visual Studio Community 2015 installation: check "Universal Windows App Development Tools > Tools (1.4.1) and Windows 10 SDK"
    2. Unarchive (using WinRAR or expand command) KB3133719-x64.msu.msu > > microsoft-windows-mediafeaturepack-oob-package-original
    3. Edit adn save using Notepad .\microsoft-windows-mediafeaturepack-oob-package-original\Microsoft-Windows-MediaFeaturePack-OOB-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.14393.0.mum
       to delete all update entries except:
       - Microsoft-Media-Foundation-Package
       - Microsoft-Media-Foundation-WOW64-Package
       - Microsoft-Windows-Portable-Devices-Package
    2. Run Command Prompt as Administator
    cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\bin\x64"
    makecert -r -sv C:\Certificate.pvk -n CN="Generic Certificate" -eku, C:\Certificate.cer
    (Password - None)
    Note (according to
    To find EKU, double-click any CAT from original CAB and View Signature > View Certificate > Details > Copy to File > Save as CER
    Double-click CER > Details > Enchanced Key Usage contains numbers:
    Code Signing (

    This determines a certificate is valid for Windows Update installations.
    Otherwise DISM returns error:

    After 3 days of looking for a solution I finally managed to almost figure it out. Now I have MTP USB Device recognised but I receive error "The class installer has denied the request to install or upgrade this device" when I try updating Apple Mobile Device USB to MTP...

    1. Download and install "Apple Mobile Device Support" (or any other version, it is also included in iTunes or iCloud for Windows)
    2. Download "KB3133719-x64.msu.msu"
    3. Extract MSU using WinRAR (or expand command in Command Prompt)
    4. Extract "" using WinRAR (or expand command in Command Prompt)
    5. Find and copy to Desktop these folders from extracted "" folder:
    1) amd64_microsoft-windows-wpd-portabledeviceapi_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.14393.0_none_787531c102bc9494

    8) amd64_bthmtpenum.inf_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.14393.0_none_2d6c2e43aaa47c56
    6. Rename folders to 1-8 in order of 4-th paragraph
    7. Restart your PC to special mode using Start > Restart holding Shift button > Troubleshoot > Startup
    8. At startup dialog press 7 (Disable Driver Signature Enforcement)
    9. Launch Command Promt as Administrator

    OK, thanks to this wonderful article I managed to figure out how to completely uninstall Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N permanent update KB3133719. Here's some details on what I did in case comment won't be published there:
    I replaced string permanence=permanentUntilReset with permanence=removable in all files “Microsoft-Windows-MediaFeaturePack * .mum”. The “main” package wrapper file (Microsoft-Windows-MediaFeaturePack-OOB-Package_Wrapper~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.14393.0.mum) didn’t want to uninstall and returned error. However command
    WUSA /UNINSTALL /KB:3133719
    worked like a charm, at the end command prompt asked for restart & viola – package removed. Next thing I’m going to try is edit MUM so it didn’t remove Media Transfer Protocol support.
    And here’s how to remove traces of update from WinSxS (if you don’t do that after uninstalling permanent update you won’t gain any disk space back!). First command:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup
    Check out results. Second command:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup
    Lastly I attach everything you need to completely uninstall Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N KB3133719 in no time !

    I'm also happy to report I successfully modified MUMs to be able to uninstall
    Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N preserving MTP device support. I attach the second ZIP for that. Basically it leaves only drivers for all Media Transfer Protocol Devices (MTP Devices), ~7 MB, and uninstalls all bloatware like Windows Media Player and it's codecs (~500 MB). So yes, a lot of valuable space has been saved today !

    The quick way to only
    install MTP Device drivers for Windows 10 N from KB3133719 (without other packages) is:
    1. UnRAR "KB3133719-x64.msu.msu" to your Desktop
    2. UnRAR "" to your Desktop
    3. Run command as Administrator:
    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:"C:\Users\%YourUserName%\Desktop\microsoft-windows-mediafeaturepack-oob-packagemicrosoft-windows-portable-devices-package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.14393.0.mum"
    However the only issue after either partially uninstalling of KB3133719 or installing only Windows Portable Devices Package is class/type in Device Manager will be named "Unknown" not "Portable device" (device name itself and icon are fine - Apple iPhone & portable device icon). And you will have to manually configure AutoPlay for Apple iPhone in Settings of Windows. Other then that it works fine. Sorry I couldn't figure out how to fix that tiny issue.

    Happy holidays

    Thank you very much for your awesome find, @username1.

    After doing the creators update two days ago, I had forgotten to apply the Media Feature Pack. Since I only require its MTP drivers I found your thread. Had to adapt a little but I thought I might share back. The filenames changed a bit. Also for me, my mobile phone (One Plus 3, labelled A3003) is correctly addressed in device manager.

    I installed four packages for that, not sure if all were required:

    1. microsoft-windows-portable-devices-package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~10.0.15063.0.mun
    2. microsoft-windows-portable-devices-package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-us~10.0.15063.0.mun
    3. microsoft-windows-portable-devices-package-windows~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~10.0.15063.0.mun
    4. microsoft-windows-portable-devices-package-windows~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-us~10.0.15063.0.mun

    All applied using the dism method and doing a reboot afterwards. Works perfectly and without all the other Media bloat.
