Applying Hotfix 3143760 for Windows ADK v1511

Although I’m moving full-steam-ahead with PowerShell, I regularly fall back on batch for really simple things mostly because I’m comfortable with the ‘language.’   (A little too comfortable maybe.)

I needed to apply hotfix KB3143760 on a handful of machines so I pulled the instructions from the KB, put them into a batch file and executed from the central repository since I had already previously downloaded the files.

@echo off
rem can be amd64 or x86
Set _Arch=x86
Set _WIMPath=%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Windows Preinstallation Environment\%_Arch%\en-us\winpe.wim
Set _MountPoint=%SystemDrive%\WinPE_%_Arch%\mount
Set _ACLFile=%SystemDrive%\WinPE_%_Arch%\AclFile

if /i [%_Arch%]==[amd64] (Set _Schema=\\path\to\schema-x64.dat)
if /i [%_Arch%]==[x86] (Set _Schema=\\path\to\schema-x86.dat)

if not exist "%_WIMPath%" echo. & echo ERROR: WIM NOT FOUND&&goto end
if not exist "%_Schema%" echo. & echo ERROR: SCHEMA NOT FOUND&&goto end
if not exist "%_MountPoint%" mkdir "%_MountPoint%"
if exist "%_ACLFile%" del /q "%_ACLFile%"
if not exist "%_WIMPath%.ORIG" echo f | xcopy "%_WIMPath%" "%_WIMPath%.ORIG" /V /F /H /R /K /O /Y /J

dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:"%_WIMPath%" /index:1 /MountDir:"%_MountPoint%"

icacls "%_MountPoint%\Windows\System32\schema.dat" /save "%_ACLFile%"

takeown /F "%_MountPoint%\Windows\System32\schema.dat" /A
icacls "%_MountPoint%\Windows\System32\schema.dat" /grant BUILTIN\Administrators:(F)
xcopy "%_Schema%" "%_MountPoint%\Windows\System32\schema.dat" /V /F /Y

icacls "%_MountPoint%\Windows\System32\schema.dat" /setowner "NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller"
icacls "%_MountPoint%\Windows\System32\\" /restore "%_ACLFile%"

echo. & echo.

Set _Write=0
set /p _UsrResp=Did everything complete successfully? (y/n):
if /i [%_UsrResp:~0,1%]==[y] (set _Write=1) else (if /i [%_UsrResp:~0,1%]==[n] (set _Write=0) else (goto confirm))

echo. & echo.
if %_Write% EQU 1 (
	echo. & echo Unmounting and COMMITTING Changes
	dism /Commit-Wim /MountDir:"%_MountPoint%"
	dism /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:"%_MountPoint%" /commit
) else (
	echo. & echo Unmounting and DISCARDING Changes
	dism /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:"%_MountPoint%" /discard
dism /Cleanup-Wim

if exist "%_ACLFile%" del /q "%_ACLFile%"
Set _Write=
Set _UsrResp=
Set _MountPoint=
Set _WIMPath=
Set _Arch=


Really simple, and it worked brilliantly.

It’s nowhere nearly as elegant or complete as Keith Garner’s solution, but it got the job done for me lickety split.


Good Providence and patch safely!
