Installing the Camera App

    Question

  • Hello,

    I'm having a hard time to get the Camera App to work on the LTSB version of Windows 10. I've follow a few directions where it's saying to create a folder and subfolder for the x64 and x86 file, create an application from within MDT and point to it to the AppBundle file.

    It shows that it install but I'm not able to launch the Camera app. Is there another way. I see something about sideloading the app but what file do I point it to?

  • UWP is not part of Windows 10 LTSB. The Camera App is UWP. So find another way to use the camera or install Windows 10 Enterprise.

    So you make a LTSB version of Windows 10 for kiosk or any environment that's mission critical and this is the best answer you have. What if a Marketing Department want to use a Surface Pro 4 as a "Kiosk" for an interactive event that needs to make use of the camera? Or what if one of my stores wants to use this as a Kiosk to promote something? We can't depend on fault updates that Microsoft has been pushing out in the past.

    We're not going to use the Enterprise version because of all the apps that are preinstalled. Uninstalling them would be too risk and probably make the OS unstable.

    I found my answer through a Microsoft post and got it to work.
