SCCM Install on Windows 10

Hi There,

Anyone know how to identify Windows 10 system having correct parameters set for SCCM Client?  According to articles Windows 10 will fail to install or install SCCM Client incorrectly during install of client without command line “ccmsetup.exe /skipprereq:windowsupdateagent30-x64.exe”.

I am asking because I have 300+ system that SCCM indicate “Check fail” in SCCM Console Monitoring.  I have verified that these are indeed Windows 10 systems.  I have also uninstalled SCCM Client and reinstall SCCM Client on multiple systems with command line mention above.  That resolves “Check fail” for those systems I have reinstall the client.

SCCM 2012 SP2 and SCCM 2012 R2 Sp1 solves this problem. If you cannot upgrade then you need to use the /skipprereq to support windows 10.

Hi Vgneshwaran4264,

Thanks for you respond.  I am aware that we have to use "/skipprereq:windowsupdateagent30-x64.exe" as part of install command.  That has been applied for any future SCCM Client push to new systems.

What's going on here is that before the above fix for windows 10 SCCM Client install are applied.  We have all these systems that user upgrade to or manually install windows 10.  Then when those systems were added to domain, it receive SCCM Client to install from GPO (without the correct command line in place).  Now I have 300+ systems reporting to SCCM as "Check Fail" status.  I have install SCCM Client with correct command line for 3 systems with issue and not they are checking in with SCCM Server now.

My intention is to see if there is a way I can create a query in SCCM to check for those 300+ systems for wrong SCCM Client parameters for windows 10.  This way I can populate to a collection then do a mandatory push to install correct SCCM Client with "/skipprereq:windowsupdateagent30-x64.exe" command line.

Try looking at this site:



We are having problems with 64 bit and video drivers. After upgrading windows to 10 you have to load new video drivers., Also you have to remove Symantec antivirus. It will not install with it on it. You can upgrade Symantec to windows 10 version then install windows 10
