Windows 10 1511 BUG – DISM File Associations

Just wanted to share some Windows 10 deployment notes from the field.  My colleague Ryan Fitzgerald and myself have been troubleshooting file associations not being set properly in Windows 10 build 1511.  This has been confirmed from Microsoft Premier Support, that there is a current bug in 1511 that causes DISM not to properly set file associations.

I have tested this on insider build 14271 and file associations are still broken.  Insider build 14279 is being downloaded now.  I will strip DISM from there, and run DISM 14279 on the 1511 / 10586 upgrade sequence to see if will set the file associations as desired.

Stay tuned….

Ascent Solutions – A New Chapter

I am on my seventh day at Ascent Solutions.  I have accepted a position as a Cloud Architect, with the mind on helping customers bridge the gap on managing devices through the Cloud.  I am please to be part of this elite staff, and look forward to challenges of growing our business in the endpoint management field.

I will have always have a place in my heart for Pomeroy.  It was great learning experience working for a IT Outsourcer, and see what it goes into transitioning a customer.   I will rely on those learning experiences, and without Pomeroy I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

Thanks again Pomeroy.

And rebirthing the way customers think of their IT Operations is still my goal.  Thanks for reading.
