Invalid DeploymentType in MDT 8443


For those who may have updated MDT 2013 Update 2 to the new build, 8443, you may have noticed something odd. The message that comes up is "Invalid DeploymentType of "" ". Yes, there is a "", as a blank deployment type.

To remedy this, you will need to change a line in the DeployWiz_ProductKeyVista.vbs file, in the scripts folder. Yes, don't adjust your sets - it says Vista.

Look for the line if oProperties("DeploymentType") = "UPGRADE" then and change it to if Property("DeploymentType") = "UPGRADE" then

Hope this helps someone else in need.

    Thanks, this took me ages to try and sort with numerous rebuilds. This should be top of the search engine results for this problem!
