Well good news @Jenny Feng .
I downloaded the Windows 11 version and the problem seems to have gone away.
The missing dll isnt included in this version but I guess nothing is calling it.
MetaDeployProvider.dll missing from latest DISM Deployment tools
Trying to run dism /image:c:\temp\boot.wim /Get-Drivers but errors with "Warning DISM DISM Provider Store: PID=2756 TID=7660 Failed to load the provider: C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Deployment Tools\AMD64\DISM\MetaDeployProvider.dll. - CDISMProviderStore::Internal_GetProvider(hr:0x8007007e)
This was a fresh 21H1 install with the latest versions of the Windows Kits (win10 - 10.1.18362.1 & WinPE 10.1.17763.1)
Any idea where I can get this from or if a fix id coming?
I do not think this was solved for this broke windows update since these DLLs are not to be found in 1809 cumulative MarorApr2022 updates that fail to load due to this issue on Win server 2019 Web VM
It occurred after an update and the dism log complains:
Failed to load the provider: C:\Windows\TEMP\5379BF15-8583-4AF5-96A3-035391C7248E\PEProvider.dll
Failed to load the provider: C:\Windows\system32\Dism\SiloedPackageProvider.dll
Failed to load the provider: C:\Windows\system32\Dism\MetaDeployProvider.dll
I also found the SiloedPackageProvider.dll in APK as did Peter Williams but this has been a fiasco of
squandered time and trying to avoid unnecessary rebuild of a webserver with all the after headaches.
I had way too much redline fun at the loss of other much more needed tasks than playing with the web server:
because of windows update, went through all this and much more with no joy results even after placing SiloedPackageProvider.dll in correct directory.
done after each tested fix
sfc /scannow then press Enter
Dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /CheckHealth then press Enter
Dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /ScanHealth then press Enter
Dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /RestoreHealth then press Enter
Then did a reset and rebuild of dism store, no joy
I am pretty certain that Microsoft left out this straggler DLL and SiloedPackageProvider.dll in APK and owes me
100 beers for this DLL nightmare.
Then also loaded APK and in its DISM 32 bit directory, I repeated all with no joy
If I could find MetaDeployProvider.dll, could test or else update webserver to win2022 bad idea

Have you checked the DISM log file?
You may need to run C:\Windows\system32>dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

I have and no difference.
The problem isnt with Windows OS - the dll is missing from the kit
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Deployment Tools\AMD64\DISM\MetaDeployProvider.dll
Hi Jenny. Thanks for this. The problem isnt that I have the wrong version. The problem is that the current version seems to be missing critical dlls.
I dont intend to pay to raise a case with Microsoft to tell them they have dropped a DLL from the current version.
If there is a free way of doing so I will but I was hoping that someone from MS might read this and take the initiative to investigate.
For the time being, as you need to upgrade the ADK to use 21H1 on MDT users just have to be aware that there are limitations on what they'll be able to do with DISM.
Its not that tricky to answer. If someone from Msoft could just install ADK and confirm whether or not they get the required dlls. Should take about 5 min.
If they get the MetaDeployProvider.dll then something has gone wrong with my setup. If they dont, MS have forgotten to include it in the package.
Heres a link.
ADK, not APK
