    This is sending me crazy! After I deleted the folder, the SCCM TS errors out when applying the OS.

    I'd delete the contents if there are any rather than the folder.

    If there was something under WindowsApps, did you log on using a domain account before capturing the image? On my 8.1 deployment test machine it only populated the folder after I logged into the domain.

    Nope, the image was never on the domain.

    See post #14.

    The PowerShell equivalents would be Get-WindowsImage, Mount-WindowsImage and Dismount-WindowsImage (or just use the script in the post).

    What I mean is what Is the command to remove the app, Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage ?

    I could make a powershell script and run it part of the task sequence.

    Ah! You'll need Get-AppxProvisionedPackage and Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage in that case.

    Remove-AppxPackage -package Microsoft.BingFinance_1.2.0.135_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe                                                             
    Remove-AppxPackage -package Microsoft.BingMaps_1.2.0.136_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe                                                                
    Remove-AppxPackage -package Microsoft.BingNews_1.2.0.135_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe
