Customer-requested drivers since November 6, 2019 Release.
UIU Driver Database updated to support Microsoft Surface Pro 7.
The full driver database exceeds 33Gb in size (33.3 Gb IMP). Please follow the guidelines below for optimal performance. This database release still covers Windows 7 through Windows 10 (32/64bit).
USB Flash drives need to be formatted with the NTFS file system before the driver database will successfully transfer.
Network share access is recommended.
The Big Bang Support Team would like to remind our customers to please clear out any drivers represented in the Custom folder(s) prior to testing with a new version of the UIU Driver Database as neglecting to do so may result in false negative installations. Please contact a Support Representative with questions or concerns. Thank you!
Our Support team has completed a comprehensive review of the UIU Driver Database, particularly with respect to its inclusion of unsigned drivers. In previous versions, when the "Signed Drivers Only" option had been selected, unsigned drivers may have been delivered to target machines but not employed. As of UIUPREP version 184.108.40.206, handling of unsigned drivers has been optimized to ensure that they are not even delivered to target machines when the "Signed Drivers Only" option has been selected.
The UIU Classic Mode (as of UIU 5.8.0.x) requires the .NET 4.6 Framework.
When employing ADK options in UIU with ADK 1803 installed on the UIU 5 Console machine, DISM commands fail to execute properly. This issue is under investigation.
When employing ADK options, please use an earlier version of Microsoft ADK on the console machine, (e.g. ADK 1709).
With ADK 1803 installed on the UIU 5 Console machine, a pop-up window stating "Using Windows 10 or later" will be presented. Selecting the "OK" button will allow the ADK process to proceed. Alternatively for unattended operations, an earlier version of ADK should be employed, (e.g. ADK 1709).
The UIU 5 (as of UIU 5.7.x.x) now requires the .NET 4.6 Framework.
This (and future) versions will require Driver.imp files (e.g. DB170411-p5460.imp) for those operations. Online UIU 5 Updates will be unaffected..
On deployed machines only, the Log folder & UIU data folder have been migrated from Program Files to ProgramData.
UIU log files on deployed machines are now located under the ProgramData\UIU directory. Additionally, resources needed by each application are extracted/placed in the ProgramData\UIU\bin directory (temporarily). Program Files is no longer used for any resources or logs.
NOTE: The UIU 5 Installation log files are also now located in ProgramData\UIU; other install files remain in Program Files.
In accordance with the SCCM(MDT) Task Sequence engine, the UIUPREP application will now return an error code (1) in the event that a condition required for the UIU to function efficiently or completely has not been satisfied. SCCM and MDT users should be able to control whether or not Task Sequences continue under the "Options" panel of their UIU Deployment Configuration step via the "Continue on error" control.
The UIU Plug-ins 2.0 with SCCM (as of UIU 2.2.2.x) now requires the .NET 4.6 Framework.
The UIU Plug-ins 2.0 with MDT (as of UIU 2.2.2.x) now requires the .NET 4.6 Framework.
