Removing provisioned apps after upgrade from 1607 to 1703

New Contributor

Hi, is there any way to run a script to remove provisioned apps that reinstall after an upgrade from 1607 to 1703 when using SCCM servicing plans to do the upgrade?  If not, what is the best way to do this?  I have read Michael Niehaus blog posts and have gotten his script to work perfectly on a new image but am still struggling with figuring out how to remove the extra apps after the upgrade but before the user logs on. He ended that post with "If you need more details, let me know and I can provide more complete examples."  So I guess i'm asking for more examples or a blog post part 2.  :)  Thank you.

Blog post part #1, https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/mniehaus/2016/08/23/windows-10-1607-keeping-apps-from-coming-bac..., gives a suggestion:  Use SetupConfig.ini to run a PostOOBE command that re-removes the apps.  It does require staging those files locally prior to the servicing-driven upgrade.
