New Release: 2.0.3080

The latest version, SmartDeploy 2.0.3080, is now available to download and install. With this update, we continue to simplify usability and enhance performance with current features.

Microsoft made updates to the disk partitioning structure in a way that we have not seen before when installing Windows 10, version 2004 that was released on May 27th. What we saw in our testing and from customer feedback, was that there were Sysprep issues and updates to OEM recovery. All of this has been addressed with SmartDeploy version 2.0.3080.

Additionally, this software update includes several feature enhancements, bug fixes, and performance improvements.

Windows 10, version 2004 support

Support for deploying the May 2020 Update, Windows 10, version 2004. Please note that deployment of Windows 10 version 2004 with previous SmartDeploy versions is not supported.

Application Pack Wizard

Create custom Application Packs easily using the new step-by-step wizard. The wizard will guide you through adding the installer path and details. Once created, deploy your custom Application Packs individually or with your Windows image be combining them in your deployment package. Check out the guide to Create a Custom Application Pack.
