Why Sysprep Why...

2017-07-06 12:59:56, Error              
SYSPRP Package Microsoft.Appconnector_1.3.3.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe was installed for a user, but not provisioned for all users. This package will not function properly in the sysprep image.

SYSPRP Failed to remove apps for the current user: 0x80073cf2.

2017-07-06 12:59:56, Error              
SYSPRP Exit code of RemoveAllApps thread was 0x3cf2.

Recent sysprep issue that was driving me banana's basically anytime you try and run sysprep it would stop telling me to check the setupact.log for issues, error above

Error: One or more users has packages installed under their user profile, if you receive package not found its just not found under your user profile


1. The packages belong only on your profile

open up powershell

get-appxpackages | Remove-appxpackages                   (will remove all packages )

get-appxprovisionedpackages -online | Remove-appxprovisionedpackages -Online ( removes all provisioned)

if you want to be more selective you can do get-appxpackages

get-appxpackages > c:\list.txt will give you a quick output

1. Remove Users with package issues

If this is a sysprep image you most likely won't need multiple user accounts on the image. 

goto Advanced System Settings -> Advaned Tab -> User Profiles Settings 

remove unneeded profiles, only remove them if you can see the name visible if are seeing unknown profile or an un-recognizable name removing the profile will not fix your issue

3. Find out what user has the package installed

run get-appxpackages > c:\list.txt 

Open up the list and you will see for example

PackageUserInformation : {S-1-5-21-1338954240-834293059-396468565-3684 [S-1-5-21-1338954240-834293059-396468565-3684]: 
                         Installed, S-1-5-21-1338954240-834293059-396468565-15198 
                         [S-1-5-21-1338954240-834293059-396468565-15198]: Installed, 
                         S-1-5-21-1338954240-834293059-396468565-500 [S-1-5-21-1338954240-834293059-396468565-500]: 
                         Installed, S-1-5-21-1338954240-834293059-396468565-15164 
                         [S-1-5-21-1338954240-834293059-396468565-15164]: Installed}

The package lists all SID's with offending package

Logon to DC and use AD Module for Powershell

Get-ADUser -identity

e.g "Get-ADUser -identity S-1-5-21-1338954240-834293059-396468565-15164"

this will return the username , which you can then use to login to that machine if the profile no longer exists on the machine or if the machine is still attached to the domain and you are seeing clear usernames under the user profiles simply remove the offending profile.

Good Luck & I hope that helped , until next time.. feel free to leave comments/questions

note: this is on the latest version of windows 10 pro as of 6/7/17 & I also did try get-appxpackages -allusers | remove-appxpackages but with 0% success

Chrome Couldn't Load Plug-in Issue - FIX 2016 - Adobe Flash Player

An error that has been building and building so it seems, 3 possible fixes below

1. Incompatible Adobe Flash and Chrome Versions (e.g 32 bit chrome 64 bit java , 64bit chrome 32 bit java)

 Goto Help -> About Google Chrome and confirm your version
Now confirm that you have the matching 64 bit java plugin installed otherwise you will get the Couldn't load Plugin message.

Another way to confirm your plugin versions is to check in 
C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\PepperFlash\23.0.0.versionno

Check the file Size , 32bit = around 15-17mb  and 64bit = 29mb +

You can now confirm this in program files to ensure the correct version is being used by the installed applications in
 C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\53.0.versionno.143\PepperFlash

If the file sizes don't match then there is your issue.

2. Delete Pepperflash folder or Deny permissions on folder

Navigate to 
C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\PepperFlash

- Delete any folders within the PepperFlash folder
- Close and Reopen Chrome

Another option is to deny the user permissions to the PepperFlash folder there by preventing them from recreating the folder within PepperFlash which is causing the issues

3. Disable Adobe Flash Plugin

visit chrome://plugins in your browser

Disable Adobe Flash Player , Chrome will then revert back to its inbuilt player (some content may not be shown correctly) but will work for most

hope that helps
