  • You probably ended up deleting the default photo application. Verify that Michael's script is able to locate your RemoveApps.xml (review RemoveApps.log in your MININT log folder) and your xml files does not reference UWP Photo application.

    As to how to set a default application in Windows 10 during OSD - here is a good writeup on the process and potential pitfalls: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/windowsinternals/2017/10/25/windows-10-how-to-configure-file-associations-for-it-pros/


    Cheers,
