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 126.96.36.199, 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.
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.
