Trying to get my new image out the door for Windows 10 Pro x64 - 1703 and the last issue I'm having is the Taskbar customization.

I followed the steps here: Configure Windows 10 taskbar (Windows 10) | Microsoft Docs

I exported the start menu configuration as described int eh document.

I have put the file in %LOCALAPPS%\Microsoft\Windows\Shell and set the GPO with gpedit.msc so it is not a domain GPO. I have also set the GP for both user and computer with the same settings as a troubleshooting step (not sure if it would cause an issue by doing that).

When I sysprep the machine everything works EXCEPT the taskbar modifications. Not sure what is going on.

Here is the XML file for the modifications. Anyone see anything wrong with what I'm doing?

The only other piece of information that I can provide is that we are using Classic Shell so I don't know if that would prevent the settings being applied.
