Captured images missing installed applications RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    I am using MDT 2013 to capture an image of a reference computer that has Windows 8.1 installed, along with several additional applications.  When I deploy the captured image with a new task sequence set up for that purpose, the applications are missing.  This is not a matter of the shortcuts being gone; they do not exist in the their respective Program Files folders either, and do not appear in the Programs and Features list.

    I have verified that I'm using the captured image, and captured the reference image again (from a Hyper-V VM) just to be sure.  My understanding was that sysprep & capture did not remove applications, just data that's unique to users and the machine. 

    Thank you in advance for any help.
