    Hi Chris

    As you might know newer versions of Windows start installing updates right after powering on. This causes incompatibility with our Provisioning Windows transaction. We had to disable the Windows Update service during provisioning so that is doesn't interfere with our transactions. The Windows Update service can be enabled again after the VS is provisioned. Our engineers are working on KB article, I will add a link once its ready.

    Hi
    I found a workaround. I’ve created a recipe that enables the service and starts it.

    Hi Chris

    Great to know that you have found a solution. 

    These commands should re-enable the Update Service
    sc config wuauserv start= delayed-auto
    net start wuauserv

    That’s exactly what we used :)
