Thanks for the link, but is there no way to disable the updating completely?, I had to revert back to using sysprep's copy profile due to the updating of apps that defprof does.

Hi
Bruce we use deep freeze as well, and had the same issue with the constant updating. So I decided to revert back to using sysprep's copy profile.

Defprof and User Profile are amazing products, that have a few quirks that I am hoping Forensit work out shortly, in regards to windows 8.x

If the Windows Store Apps are not updated they won't work. They are configured on a per user basis.

It would be easy for us to disable Store Apps updating. Do you not want to use them?

We have no need for Windows Store Apps and would love to just have them removed / not updated / eradicated. The goal, for us, is to speed up the Windows login. We don't use the Windows apps, so if gutting them would help, the disable them.

I would be willing to beta test code for you too. ;)

To disable Windows Store App updating on User Profile Manager please download the TID1091.zip file here.

Open the zip file and extract the upwpm2.exe file. Replace the existing upwpm2.exe file in C:\Windows on a Windows 8x machine where User Profile Manager is installed.

In the registry, you need to create a new DWORD (32-bit) value under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ForensiT\User Profile Manager called 'DisableAppxUpdate' (no quotes) and set the Value Data to 1.You can do this by importing the DisableAppxUpdate.reg file that is included in the TID1091.zip file. (These instructions assume you are running 64-bit Windows.)

This will prevent User Profile Manager from updating the Windows Store Apps. However, Windows might still install Windows Store Apps each time a user logs on to a machine for the first time. There are Group Policies you can set to prevent this from happening which you may want to investigate. See for example https://support2.microsoft.com/kb/2826659

Please let us know how you get on. If all is well we will update the User Profile Manager installer to include the updates.

We have now posted an update to DefProf (version 1.9) which enables you not to update Windows Store Apps.To do this, use the /NoAppx switch:

DefProf profilefoldername /NoAppx

As mentioned above, Windows will still install default apps for the new user logging on unless you take additional steps to stop it doing so.

If you want to prevent DefProf updating Windows Store Apps on a default profile you have already set with an older version of DefProf, delete the C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\ForensiT folder.

Hi,

I'm having the same issues, I'm just wondering where the 1.9 version of Defprof is as the only one I can download is 1.8?
