Sysprep is failing on Windows 10 1709 due to MiracastView package

You have a Windows 10 1703 computer / VM and you have upgraded it to version 1703. When you run sysprep it fails with the following error:

Setupact.log contains errors:

SYSPRP Package Windows.MiracastView_6.3.0.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy was installed for a user, but not provisioned for all users. This package will not function properly in the sysprep image.


SYSPRP Failed to remove apps for the current user: 0x80073cf2.


SYSPRP Exit code of RemoveAllApps thread was 0x3cf2.


SYSPRP ActionPlatform::LaunchModule: Failure occurred while executing 'SysprepGeneralizeValidate' from C:\Windows\System32\AppxSysprep.dll; dwRet = 0x3cf2


SYSPRP SysprepSession::Validate: Error in validating actions from C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\ActionFiles\Generalize.xml; dwRet = 0x3cf2R

Removing the MiracastView package with PowerShell also fails:

Get-AppxPackage -allusers *mira* | Remove-AppxPackage

Remove-AppxPackage: Deployment Remove operation with target volume C: on Package Windows.MiracastView_6.3.0.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy from:   failed with error 0x80070490.

This happens due to a bug during migration from 1703 to 1709.

You have two options:

1) If the Windows.old exists, copyWindows.MiracastView_6.3.0.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy.xml fromC:\Windows.old\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\AppRepository\ toC:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\AppRepository

2) Find another Windows 10 1703 computer and copy the folderC:\Windows\MiracastView to the problematic VM.

After this restart the computer to finish the removal and run Sysprep again. This time it should work as expected.
