Updated Windows 10 Scanstate.exe for version 1511 For OEMs


Microsoft has released an updated version of the Scanstate utility. Scanstate captures an initial configuration blob that contains OEM customizations. This updated version resolves a problem with the tool that caused intermittent failures in the capture process. The updated Scanstate file applies to the Windows 10 November update (version 1511) and will be included in the next ADK release.

 

OEMs can use the file to capture an initial configuration blob (ICB) that contains all of their customizations. This updated file fixes previously reported intermittent failures in the capture process due to a crash in the tool, which can block them from shipping Windows 10 version 1511 systems.
The x86/x64 file version 10.0.10586.163 replaces the existing Scanstate.exe binary (file version 10.0.10586), which was originally provided in the Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK). The updated Scanstate.exe version applies to the Windows 10 November update (version 1511) and will be included in the next ADK release, scheduled along with the Windows 10 anniversary update.
