Before deploying Windows VLC media player for Windows 10 , make sure that your Software Update Point is configured to include Windows 10 patches. Now that the deployment is triggered for clients, we will launch the installation manually using software center. We will now import the complete Windows 10 media in Operating System Upgrade Packages. This package will be used to upgrade an existing Windows 10 or a Windows 7 (or 8.1) device to Windows 10 using an Upgrade Task Sequence.
We will be importing the default Install.wim from the Windows 10 media for a “vanilla” Windows 10 deployment. You could also import a WIM file that you’ve created through a build and capture process.
