How do I copyprofile and customize the taskbar using ICD? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to customise a Windows 10 image, I have found a page that I believe lists all the available settings you can change with ICD. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/dn965990(v=vs.85).aspx

    But when I use ICD, I cannot find most of these settings.

    In particular I wanted to copyprofile, customize the taskbar and uninstall some apps(this is the only one that seems to actually be present in ICD.)

  • Copyprofile and taskbar links are part of the image time settings in ICD, so they are not listed if you start New Provisioning package Project, but they are there when you start New Windows image customization. Can you check if you can find them in there?

    I tried to figure it out also and finally found them from there.

  • You might be better to for with Windows System Image Manager rather than ICD. ICD was designed for Windows Mobile/Phone and it really doesn't work for the desktop version. In fact an add on to the ADK was developed for Windows IoT Core to build from the command line rather than using ICD. SIM is more reliable and straight forward. Except the copy profile doesn't work here either as not by several posts in this forum. There are several MSDN/TechNet on using SIM as well as something I wrote: http://annabooks.com/Articles/Articles_IoT10/Windows-10-IoT-E-Addendum-1%20Rev1.4.pdf

  • Windows ICD is primarily designed for use by:

    • OEMs, ODMs, and Makers looking for a simple and streamlined process of creating and deploying a Windows image.
    • System integrators who provision devices based on their customers' needs.
    • IT departments for business and educational institutions who need to provision bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and business-supplied devices.

    To determine if Windows ICD is the right tool for you, see the following table, which shows the scenarios that Windows 10 supports and the tool that you can use

  • Hi cesDavid,

    All the options are listed in the link as you posted. If it is not listed, I am afraid it is not supported.

    For "Copyfile" of Windows 10, many users have submitted "Feedback" that it didn`t work as expected and it may result in unexpected behavior. We have submitted the issue on our side. I hope it could be fixed in the near future.

    As for removing the apps, we could try the command line " remove-appxprovisionedpackage " and "Remove-AppxPackage".
    Here is a link for reference:
