Surface 4 rear camera issue with SCM Windows 10 (TH2) GPO RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have deployed the SCM Windows 10 TH2 GPO's and have the "Prevent enabling lock screen camera" GPO set to Enabled.   We've noticed that with this enabled (Security Compliance), the rear facing camera on the Surface 4 (and 4 Pro) tablets does not function properly (cannot take pictures).   With the GPO not enabled or granting the user admin rights on the local machine (not feasible), the rear camera works.   Strangely enough, the GPO does not show up on the Surface 3 (camera's work properly) although the machines are in the same OU.   Anyone else run into this issue?

  • Hi,

    I have tested on my notebook since I have not surface 4, and the result is that the camera worked fine. The OS on my notebook is Enterprise build 10586.164.

    Since there are some specialization on Surface product, you'd better contact Surface support for further help.

  • I did contact Surface support forum as well.   Curious as to why you would test on a notebook when the issue is on a Surface.   Thanks for the assist though.....
