This can occur if the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) is disabled on the Windows 10 client computer. The RemoteWipe CSP requires Windows RE in order to function.


First check the status of Windows RE. You can do this by running a Command Prompt as an administrator, then executing the following command:

Reagentc /info

The command should show a Windows RE status of Enabled, like this:

Screenshot of the output of Reagentc/info command, showing the Windows R E status is Enabled.

If the status is Disabled, you will need to troubleshoot why Windows RE is disabled.
