Block the processus which recreate appxStage folders

5 posts in this topic

Inside the folder Temp, you will see probably plenty (about 60) folder with a name beginning by appxStage.

If I remove them, Windows 10 will recreate them (probably at each startup, I guess) and I'm wonder if there is a tool (or command line or via regedit) to disable it ?

This is because of metro apps included in windows10

Better remove those apps from your PC

How to remove metro apps completely using Poweshell / CMD?

In fact, it's already the case (LTSB Edition 2016 Version 1607). No, apparently, it isn't a mistake because I had check it (via the command winver and Dism /Online /Get-CurrentEdition).

From my point of view, no PowerShell isn't a perfect solution... and I won't recommand it. Basically, sometimes it won't work fine (as you can see with this little example) and in this case, it's even worst... Apparently, it's impossible because dism can't find them.

even i don't use online removal method it create problems.

Remove packages offline then install windows. Personally using this method and i have no appxStage folders Inside the folder Temp, updates are working flawlessly

Follow zavana guide

Dism - Remove Windows Packages: Telemetry, Diagtrack, Windows Defender..etc

 

you can't remove all packages from %localappdata%\Packages'

If you remove then you may face problems e.g if you remove shellexpriencehost package then right click on TASKBAR won't work,wifi also create problems, calendar will stopped working

biroenrollment,cortana,parental packages are save to remove

List of packages which are safe to remove from RS1

Packages removed on my EnterpriseS LTSB 2016

it is because above mentioned packages are not simple appxpackages like skype,getoffice,candycrush etc these packages are features of OS.

My english is not good enough, can't write/elaborate more thing in simple manner

First of all, pardon @NokiAlpha but there's a confusion (or mistake). A long time ago, indeed I had follow the guide but no, I haven't remove them online (no one).

In fact, on the moment, I had just run the command to check it.

I didn't have any idea about these appxStage folders and yes, it's seem to be related to the ProvisionedAppxPackages (or the W10 .appx or .appxbundle).

 

None problem, I understand because for me too, it isn't my native language...

I was confused by dism because it didn't clean my Temp folder... Inside I had discover a few dism folders (about 5 and a lot more appxStage folders (nearly 650)).

My plan was to install the latest W10 (version 1703 which isn't a LTSB) and sometimes, it doesn't run very well... I had met plenty of mistakes (with HyperV packages, etc)... And apparently, each time the appxStage folders was recreate because I didn't save the changes or restart from the beginning (with an original .iso).

So I believe, for the moment I had maybe discover the origin; it's seem to be dism.
