Custom Edge tile via GPO & Layoutmodification.xml broken in 1703

    Question

  • Layoutmodification.xml to deploy custom Edge tile is no longer working in clean build of Win10 Enterprise ver 1703. This is functional in 1607. All other elements are pinned correctly and taskbar is correct. Issue is only with custom Edge tile.

    Layout created from information provided at:
