February 18, 2015 Symptoms: UIUPrep should be considering these specific drivers but does not, resulting in unexpected driver bangs or possibly blue screens.
Symptoms: ‘Old’ version of UIUPrep remained in the UIU Repository after an Online Update was performed and features/fixes supported in the updated version were not realized.
Resolution: Code corrected to properly identify and update the UIUPrep executables in the established UIU Repository.
Resolution: Drivers from a previous deployment, using the UIU, remain in the Driver Store and interfere with the driver refresh operation.
UIUPrep now clears out previously staged UIU Drivers prior to applying the newly refreshed drivers.
Before applying this update, we strongly recommend that you go through the upgrade check list provided on Technet.
