Windows 10

Windows 10 1511 February ISO contains the Insider Hub Package

If you’re using Windows 10 ISO’s to develop and deploy your upgrades and images for Windows 10 throughout your organization, you should be aware that the Insider Hub app is actually included in the image.

Is this on purpose or by accident? That remains to be seen, but according to a thread on the SCCM list, the Insider Hub is currently treated as if it’s a Windows “feature” and installs by default.

Damon Johns gives a solution to remove it:

If you don’t want this in your reference image then maybe add something during deployment for online removal scenario.

Dism /Online /Remove-Package /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-InsiderHub-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.10586.0

Michael Niehaus indicated that the next Windows 10 feature release will provide options to easily remove this like any other app (instead of a Window feature).
