Suddenly unable to install xps viewer with gpo enabled RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello,

    a few weeks ago i had users requesting to install xps viewer so i enabled the following gpo   "Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair" with the "download repair content and optional featues from wsus" option checked. it fixed the issue and they were able to install. now, another user wants it and they are unable to install. all prior installations still work. i can upload the dism.log to another platform if someone wants to examine it. i have done gpresult /r and confirmed the gpo is applied. i appreciate your time.

    I have not found the choice you mentioned in this strategy. Is it the choice of the green part in the figure below?
       

         

    now, another user wants it and they are unable to install. all prior installations still work.

    Is there any error message?
    And clients with an exception able to access the Internet?
        

    Reply back with the results would be happy to help.
