I am creating an OEM version of Windows 11 Home, and I want to include Metro Applications for the end-user, and after I sysprep the system, the metro applications are gone, although the apps are installed. In the C:\Program Files\WindowsApps folder, the Metro Applications I've preinstalled are there, but aren't actually installed. How do I keep the Metro Applications after Sysprep?

    Hello there,

    Sysprep has an additional provider that's added in Windows to clean Appx packages and to generalize the image. The provider works only if the Appx package is a per-user package or an all-user provisioned package.

    If an all-user package that's provisioned into the image was manually deprovisioned from the image but not removed for a particular user, the provider will encounter an error while cleaning out this package during sysprep.

    To resolve this issue, remove the package for the user who's running sysprep, and also remove the provisioning. To do this, follow these steps. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-client/deployment/sysprep-fails-remove-or-update-store-apps

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
