Automating Windows 10 Servicing

[6-Jul-2018: Updated Script to v 1.2 – New .NET 3.5.1 install command (per Mike Horton @mikeh36)]

After attending MMS one of the items that I put on my “Post-MMS To Do” list was to patch my OS Upgrade package source the proper way.  I don’t want to do it manually, nobody does, so I set out to learn exactly how to do it right and script it.

That where Mike Terrill and Johan Arwidmark come in.

Road to MMS 2016


After many years of trying I’m finally going to be attending one of the major IT Pro conferences in 2016.  In May I’ll be attending the Midwest Management Summit (MMS) in Minnesota for the first time.  I was lucky enough to convince my employer to split the cost with me.

To say I’m excited would be an understatement.  Like planning for the first day of school I’ve been making lists of what to bring, what I need to get, how to get there, etc.  I’m gathering up books just in case I can convince the authors to sign them for me.  What can I say, I’m a nerd!  I’ve started plotting out my drive.  Granted a small part of me is dreading the 10+ hour drive but I’m kind of looking forward to it.  It is going to be an adventure to say the least.  I’ll learn a lot.  Meet many new people.  And maybe see some sights along the way.

Now, I just need to pull together a great playlist of driving songs to get started!
