  1. Audit Assistance


    I am working on a patch management audit for a fortune 500 company, and management was hoping that we could obtain a list of patches that have been made available for endpoints PCs and Servers relating to Microsoft Office products and Windows for the past 5 years. Is there an available listing published somewhere?

    :)

  2. Audit mode

    Hi Diane,

    Windows boots into Windows Welcome Mode and Audit Mode. Windows Welcome Mode
    is the first user experience while the Audit mode is used to add customization to Windows images. Sometimes, Windows keeps running in Audit Mode and user has no idea about it, just like in your case. While your machine is running Audit
    Mode when upgrading or reinstalling Windows 10, the upgrade won’t progress.

    Here's how to exit from Audit mode to reinstall Windows 10:

    • Open the administrative or elevated Command Prompt. Type cmd in the
      Search
      field at the taskbar.
    • Type the following command and press Enter key: sysprep /oobe /generalize
      DISCLAIMER: Running sysprep command each time resets Windows licensing state to default. So if your Windows is activated and you run this command, you’ll need to reactivate Windows after executing this command.

    • Once the command IS successfully executed, you’ll be out of Audit Mode. Now you can re-try to upgrade to Windows 10 and it should work.

    Let us know if the steps above worked for you.

    Hi Alexander,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.



    This seems to be an issue with compatibility on Windows 10.

      Compatibility tab.
    • Place a check in the Run this program in compatibility mode for: box.
    • Tap the drop down box and select a previous operating system, then click
      OK.


    Hope it helps.
