    Please notice the below only applies to build 10240. All later builds of Windows 10 have serious sysprep issues.

    If you install applications in Audit Mode before sysprepping and don't launch them, the app settings will be just fine for the end user, as you mentioned you had them in Windows 8.1.

    If you for some reason launch the apps while in Audit Mode signed in as the built-in administrator, the appdata needs to be modified as in the video in your quote. In the video I only do it for the VLC Player but as an example that is valid. The only purpose of that video is to show what to do if the apps were launched before sysprepping and copying the default user profile with CopyProfile=true.

    Usually you have no need for this, no need to launch the apps before sysprepping. However, if certain appdata / configuration changes are needed, the application needs to be launched in order for it to create the configuration files, and Appdata (and / or ProgramData) needs to be modified before sysprepping to get the correct data copied to the default user profile.

    Thanks for such a detailed post. However, in my experience it has never worked. I have using sysprep for years, but I cannot make it work in Window 10 Pro. Any ideas? I have search the web and not found anything that works. I am currently build machine in audit mode, make customization's, and run sysprep. And none of setting stick. I still get default wallpaper, default windows explorer settings.

    Can you help?

    I've done a little digging and it seems the cpi offline data is only used for a reference when building the unattended.xml file see post: Unattend.xml - Question about offlineImage source. Is that correct? I've not seen anything about ding sysprep with RTM version.

    So I did some digging around the interweb gardens and found a possible solution to the CopyProfile issue in regards to Start Screen customization.

    OS|DC: Windows 10 : Deploying a customized start menu

    Basic gist is that like in 8.1 Pro and Enterprise, you can set up a locked Start Screen through the Start Layout xml file. Through a PowerShell script, you can export the Start layout and then import it into an image. Except the catch is that you have to apparently capture the wim file with the CopyProfile set to true, mount it, then plop it into the image, save it, then deploy onto the target machine. Importing the Start layout has be to be done on offline wim. In theory, you can use PowerShell to also import the customized xml file onto a live machine, but I haven't gotten it to work just yet. EDIT: After some further reading, the reason why I never got the xml import to work in 10 and 8.1 even in Enterprise was the fact the PowerShell command doesn't import xml files...... It has to be imported as a bin file. For the love of husked corn!

    Are you using the RTM build 10240? What's your xml code for your unattend file? Are you making sure you're pointing the sysprep command to use the xml file?

    Just to add something, clarifying this.

    There are two ways to sysprep with an answer file.

    Method 1:
    • Save the answer file in C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep folder as unattend.xml (you must use this name!)
    • Run the sysprep command without /unattend switch, the answer file will be automatically read and used, machine is automatically shut down after the sysprep if /quit or /reboot switches are not used
    • Example commands:
      • sysprep /generalize /oobe (sysprep with unattend.xml, shutdown when ready)
      • sysprep /generalize /oobe /quit (sysprep with unattend.xml,, quit to desktop when ready)
      • sysprep /generalize /oobe /reboot (sysprep with unattend.xml, reboot to OOBE when ready)

    Method 2:
    • Save the answer file anywhere you want to naming it as you wish with the extension .xml
    • Run the sysprep command with /unattend switch giving the name and location of the answer file you want to be read and used
    • Example command:
      • sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:X:\MyAnswerFile.xml

    Build number is 10240. I'm using media created from the MS site to download media and created a USB install. I'm loading the system with an autounattended.xml file which puts the machine in audit mode, then I run my sysprep from a batch file.

    Here's my autounattend:

    This is a bug and will be fixed in the end of November release.

    I also cannot get the LayoutModification.xml to apply to my new user Start Menu. I have tried the powershell command and copying it into C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\LayoutModification.xml. My XML works fine a machine that was installed via ISO. But on my imaged machines the changes are not applied. Any ideas? Another copyprofile bug?
