Hey all, thanks for all the interest.
But the thread has ran its course, most problems have been dealt with and any new problems that arises is more and more likely to be caused by updates.
Time to lock it down, leave it for archival purposes.
So long! :)
I actually assumed these packs are already part of regular Windows 10 SKU's by default, maybe LTSC just don't have them?
Didnt look like these required license files though because that's all blocked due to firewall and it still works. Probably because its not actually an 'app'.
No problem for...
Thanks, was pulling my hair out why HW decode wasnt working.
Cant believe this crap is also UWP based now. Luckily some guy on github hosted the necessary AppX packages and added it to my live script ;)
Help yourself :)
Lots of tweaks can probably be used for security measures, but there is of course way more that can be done.
Other than holes in programs, my personal installation has 0.0% network activity other than the essentials (ARP, DHCP etc)
I even fetch root certificates manually on...
Offline integrate Microsoft store + libs, intercepted the AppX packages with fiddler on a VM, and installed those, temporarily allowed Microsoft sign-in assistant service through firewall and start the two apps ONCE. That fetches the license.
Alternatively you could just integrate the MS Store...
No man I decided to prep the installation with fetched licenses, made a backup and consider that my actual LTSC install medium (for the specific laptop)
So if I ever have to reinstall I never have to go online for this or unblock firewall ever again ;-)
I think practically its unfeasible to...
Yea no clue why it won't work :-( The profile has been tested with updating just fine. Try an older cumulative update maybe?
All the issues you mentioned I have not experienced so myself. The profile even does a sfc scan after first reboot if i recall correctly.
Updates should work, but this profile is also ment for manually update, not though the 'Settings' section.
The proper idea is to go to Windows update catalog website and fetch the .cab files yourself and apply them. Currently that would be...
In continuation from another thread, I'm just going to jump in here, looks like the solution to the problem is really easy (for me anyhow):
With the first plan, I came as far as being able to install the IGP and Nvidia control panel AppX files and start them up completely offline, but the...
Well I can't get any further than full offline AppX install but first time run requires a one time connection through the Microsoft Sign-in blabla service.
Not sure if this can be circumvented :-( Guess Ill just install it once, make a backup of the system in case I ever have to reinstall...
So far managed to install both apps completely offline, but so far being able to start them still requires open firewall ._.
Maybe Store license stuff? The Nvidia control panel can simply be extracted from the intercepted .AppX btw.
But I cant do the same for the Intel version.
I'll be making a post in the UWP/DCH thread about my findings tonight when I have time, maybe it will help some. I still haven't fully managed to install everything without internet connection but I probably will soon. (Apparently if installing DCH with Nvidia, it also fetches the control panel...
