When testing the latest Build of Windows 10 I got an error installing the Configuration Manager 2012 R2 client, it fails installing the Windows Update agent with the following error in the CCMSetup.log file.
“File ‘C:\WINDOWS\ccmsetup\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe’ returned failure exit code 775. Fail the installation.”
I assume a solution to this error will presented soon, but I cannot wait to get started with my testing of 10049 so installing the SCCM Client with the following command line solves at least the installation error of the Configuration Manager client.
Then ccmsetup.exe will skip the installation of the Windows Update Agent and continue the installation anyway. Normally I use the /Skipprereq: command to skip the installation of Silverlight on servers as I don’t want Silverlight installed on my servers. But the command line works great in this case as well.
You will then see this in the ccmsetup.log file on the client which shows that the installation of the Windows Update agent was skipped and that the installation continues.
“Item ‘x64/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe’ is excluded by the ‘/skipprereq:’ switch. Ignore it.”
God Luck with the testing of Windows 1o!
Update: SCCM 2012 SP2 and SCCM 2012 R2 Sp1 solves the problem so to solve the issue and get OSD working an upgrade is needed. If you just want the client to work and cannot upgrade now, the workaround is valid for newer releases of Windows 10 as well.

Thank you so much!
Client still fails to download the needed files from the server. If I copy the client installation files locally and then install with this parameter it works.
How can I download the needed files during osd and then have it attempt the install?
I’m testing deployment on build 10061.
Thanks alot u r the best after trying for two days to get this installed. ur command did it in no second. COOLLLL man great
Thanks for the help.
I get this error when trying to install on latest 10074 build.
However if I try it with the switch then I get an access denied error 5 on the ccmsetup.cab file.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for the tip. I too had the issue and this fixed mine… 🙂
Hi, Nilsson, I read your blog about the SCCM 2012 client fail to install Win 10, and my problem is the same as yours, so I resolve this problem, thank you very much, and I hope we can communicate each other someday. Wish your response!
tried installing client 5.0.7958.1401 on Win10 build 10074 today and it didn’t work. One odd thing is Win10 time has the correct time zone and time but the eventlog shows as UTC time. No CCMSetup.log file.
Hi, Sorry for a late comment but has anyone been able to resolve the 0 minute timeout on OSD MSI apps for Windows 10?
Thank you for the instructions, after running CCMSetup with the switch, the Configuration Manager appeared in Control Panel.
I had to go into Control Panel > Sites and enter the site code, after the restart everything else started to work.
You have to give it few minutes to may an hour for everything to sync in
Hi, my name is Tony and I work for a school district in New York. We recently tried to create several images using SCCM and we are having very random issues. First we are using SCCM with all the updates running on Server 2012 R2. When we deploy the image some computers fail and the PC will come up to the “Recovery” page. We do receive a “bad header pool” error and also a 0x00000001 error. We have uploaded Dell drivers, Intel drivers, tried changing the settings on the Dells, (mostly 9020s), to AHIC, ATA or Raid without much success.
A few of the computers have completed and we actually were able to boot up into the OS but we can’t seem to get consistent deployment. We have also seen “Windows can not be configured to run on this computer’s hardware” messages. We suspect driver issues but have tried to resolve these issues and can’t figure out what to do next. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Hi, thanks for help!
Dear Nilsson, Thanks for your post, Its save my time!!
i have one question is the sccm 2012 sp2 is supported to win 10 clint machine
Basically only Windows 10 LTSB that is supported by 2012 Sp2 now, https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg682077.aspx#BKMK_SupConfigClientOS
So you should plan to upgrade
I’ve been trying for two days to let the SCCM automagically install. Finally gave up on it, did a search, and found this worked. We’re upgrading shortly, but this allows me to move forward with the Win 10 PCs until then.
I could able to use this command “ccmsetup.exe /skipprereq:windowsupdateagent30-x64.exe” on Windows 2016 server also
This worked brilliantly. Thanks.
(I ran into some trouble because of my various install and uninstall attempts. This install worked after I did a full cleanup of the previously failed installs.
This cleanup worked: https://prajwaldesai.com/community/threads/sccm-client-install-failed-with-exit-code-1603.1047/#post-4282 ) )
