  1. This is still hurting, and I can't deploy any fully-functional Win10 machines at the mo. I have upgraded to SDE 2.0.2080 without change. I have created a new reference Build 1703 VM without network support (so it can't update anything) - it runs calc.exe just fine, but machines deployed from this VM show the same problem. I'm starting to suspect that I'm doing something wrong but can't for the life of me work out what (and we have been using SDE since March 2012). Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks,
  2. No joy sorry: I took the base VM, updated it, logged in using a different admin account, updated all the Store apps, re-captured and re-deployed - same issue, and same count for "Get-AppxPackage | measure" (47). Any other suggestions?
  3. Hi, I have been deploying Windows 10 builds 1607 & 1703 to staff laptops successfully for a while now. Last week a staff member asked how he could get the calculator app to run. After checking and confirming that the problem is real I'm scratching my head as to why I'm see this. Symptom: try and run calc.exe on a SD-deployed PC and you get the error message "You'll need a new app to open this calculator". On the original 1703 image, "Get-AppxPackage | measure" returns a count of 84; the same on the deployed PC returns a count of47. "Add-AppxPackage -register" throws an error of "Add-AppxPackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80080205, The Appx package's block map is invalid." Source VM runs in VMWare Workstation 12.5.5. SDE version is 2.0.2050. Hardware is Dell Latitude or Dell Precision with latest platform pack. Any advice appreciated, Thanks,
  4. I'm also happy to help Vincent if that would be of use - I'm not sure of your environment, but I know what it took to get SD working for us.
  5. I'm not sure of your environment, but worked for us was to disable "Automatically detect settings", disable "Use automatic configuration script", enable "Use a proxy server for your LAN", and enable "Bypass proxy server for local addresses." I explicitly populated the "Address" and "Port" fields with the IP address and port of our proxy server. Our proxy server requires authentication, but I have a bypass list of domain names for which authentication is not required. I have added www.smartdeploy.com to the bypass list. I hope this helps,
  6. Thank you: once I moved from a PAC file to host:port the proxy connection started working.
  7. I might have just answered my own question: don't use PAC, explicitly configure host and port. Now, any support for authenticating against the proxy server....?
  8. Hi, I have always downloaded platform packs manually, and have a little cache of current and old packs which I use. We also use a proxy server for internet access and I don't see anywhere to configure a proxy server within SDE (or have I missed it? We're running v2.0.2000). With the impending change to access PPKs only from within the application, how can I access PPKs? Thanks,
  9. I now have an E6330 as well - can I use the E6430 or E6530 PPK for this, or should I run and submit the wmi.vbs script on this one too? Thanks, Bruce
  10. Done, I hope it's of use. Willing to guinea-pig a PPK file if that'd help, so long as you can get it to me sooner rather than later. Thanks, Bruce
  11. Hi, I have my first Latitude E6530 due this week - do we have an ETA on a platform pack for it? Thanks, Bruce
