    DeviceSetupManager Warnings Event Id. 200; 201; 202 & error id 1000 task (100)

    hi;

    I have installed windows 10 version 1511 through media creation tool doing clean setup; and device setup warnings again begin. But this time I tried to understand a little more about device metadata through various articles on site:

    Device Metadata Packages

    After going through various articles in above mentioned website I think I might have been able to get rid of device set up warnings permanently.

    In very brief I would like to tell what is in those articles:

    Whenever we insert an external device; the device looks for its driver in the pc’s device metadata; cache folders and on internet. If internet is not active it gives warning “The Network List Manager reports no connectivity to the internet; and
    if it is active but connection to update or windows metadata folder online is not established then it gives other warnings.

    But how comes that when we don’t insert any device still we get warnings events 200; 201; 202. Because there are 3 programs which is treated as
    inbuilt devices; and most probably the internet connection was not on while we were installing windows. So these 3 devices gets installed without getting chance to get drivers files updated or checked from
    the internet. And once got installed they keep looking for drivers and producing errors. Most probably there is clash of records; where one record shows these devices driver installed and other internet records shows these drivers not installed; and this clash
    does not let get these 3 inbuilt devices updated and keep producing device setup warnings.

    The 3 inbuilt devices are :

    1: Fax

    2: Microsoft Print to PDF

    3: Microsoft xps document writer.

    All these 3 devices could be seen in “Control Panel” >> “Devices & Printers”

    When I installed office 2013 another inbuilt device was installed “Send to One note 2013” but in my case this device was not the source of warning.

    So; what should we be doing; we should uninstall those 3 devices and install them again but this time giving them chance to get drivers from internet and letting records straight and matched.

    Since I m novice in computer world whatever solution I am mentioning below is the process I followed while experimenting to get rid of those warnings. So; few steps might not be necessary but I m writing down what I did:

    Step 1:

    Disconnect Internet.

    Step 2:

    Take out all external devices like usb pen drive; printer etc.; as we may have to get them reinstall again.

    Step 3:

    Open c drive folder (os drive). Make Hidden files visible by checking “hidden items” in the view menu. This will make “Program Data” folder visible.

    Step 4:

    Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceMetadataStore

    There you would find a folder named en-US.

    As per advice given in the article :

    Manually Adding Device Metadata Packages

    Because I m from india and locale shown in pc is india so have to create the folder; so I created a folder en-IN in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceMetadataStore

    If u r from U.S no need to create because en-US is already there. So; if u r not from U.S create a folder as per yours location shown in pc.
    En-(location code).

    In en-US folder there are 2 metadata-ms files. Copy them and paste them into newly created folder; if any.
    in my case I pasted in en-IN.

    Very Important:

    Uncheck “Hidden Items” in view menu.

    Exit All Folders; but don’t forget to uncheck “hidden items”.

    Always keep in notification area “All settings >>devices>>Printers & Scanners” the button
    "Download over metered connection" to "ON" even after warnings stops coming.

    close settings window.

    Step 5:

    Open “Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Feature”

    There open “turn windows features on/off” with administration rights.

    There uncheck:

    “Microsoft Print To PDF”

    Uncheck:

    “Windows fax and scan” by expanding + sign with “print & document services”

    Uncheck:

    XPS SERVICES [do not uncheck; do not uncheck; do not uncheck; XPS Viewer] only uncheck XPS Services.

    Press O.K

    These files gets uninstalled.

    It gives options to restart the computer. Click Restart.

    After restart If u want to find 3 inbuilt devices gone Open in notification area “All settings >>devices>>Printers & Scanners”. But close this window thereafter.

    Now we have to install them back.

    But here I again I remind u that the steps I m mentioning are part of my experimentation; so all steps may not be necessary; but I don’t know; but outcome was that I got rid of those warnings.

    Always keep in notification area “All settings >>devices>>Printers & Scanners” the button
    "Download over metered connection" to "ON" even after warnings stops coming.

    close settings window.

    Step 1:

    Don’t switch on internet yet.

    And neither open ”Devices & Printers” nor Open in notification area “All settings >>devices>>Printers & Scanners”.

    Step 2:

    Open “Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Feature”

    There open “turn windows features on/off” with administration rights.

    There check back: “Microsoft Print To PDF” ; check back “Windows fax and scan”
    by expanding + sign with “print & document services”; check back XPS SERVICES .

    Press O.K

    These files gets installed. But to don’t check their existence yet; neither by opening “Devices & Printers” nor by opening in notification area “All settings >>devices>>Printers & Scanners”.

    Step 3:

    Open “Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools”. Their open “services” with administration rights.

    Their open and start following services 1: “Device Install Service”; 2: “Device Management Enrollment Service”; 3: “DevQuery Background Discovery Broker”

    Don’t start the service “Device Setup Manager”

    Keep the service window open.

    Step 4:

    Open “Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools”. Their open “task scheduler” with administration right. Their expand “task Scheduler Library” >> then expand “Microsoft” >> then expand “Windows” there select “Device Setup”. In the
    right windows u see a task “metadata refresh”. Do nothing for the time being with it.

    Step 5:

    Start Internet; and when got connected keep watch on data bytes inflow. On next step around another 100kb-170kb data comes.

    Step 6:

    In the task scheduler right click “metadata refresh” and select
    run
    .

    Step 7:

    Watch service window and press refresh in action menu; there you will see “Device Setup Manger” running by itself
    and data flowing in. It will run for a while. So after 2 minutes again refresh the service window. Once the “Device Setup Manager”
    stops running by itself; close the service window; go to task scheduler window their the “metadata refresh” would still be running. Right click the task; and select “End”, press ok/yes when message displayed whether to close
    all instances ………. .close task scheduler windows.

    Step 8:

    Open in notification area “All settings >>devices>>Printers & Scanners”; there u see all 3 devices back and some of them might show updating bar in action. Once that blue bar updation over; close the internet.

    Step 9:

    Restart the computer; check event viewer; warnings gone.

    Step 10:

    Connect internet. Open in notification area “All settings >>devices>>Connected Device”. now plug back external devices back one by one. The devices will draw data from the internet and its installation progress will be seen in
    settings window. Say; if u insert an usb pen drive and after its installation on safe removal the message displayed under “connected device” window in settings is
    “driver error”; then it means the usb pen drive is properly installed. Else the message shown “installation incomplete…..”. then u have to follow the steps given in my
    original query above. Also how to install bitlocked drive see my above query.

    Warning:

    In my pc I noticed strange behavior that when after all my above installations and warning messages has stopped; then under “control panel” >> “devices and printers” >> I pressed F5 or Refresh in the
    menu; then after that device page got refreshed; all my devices got reset and all the warning events began to occur again. In other words F5 or Refresh acting as Reset button for all devices to its original state. So; I have to go through above process again
    from the scratch. So pls. once warning events gone, don’t press refresh or f5 in that window. To check new devices and printers use “settings” >> “devices”.

    To me itself on review of above steps; many steps looks unnecessary; but as said earlier I have written what I have done. Since I am novice in computer world; I request experts to shorten the above
    procedure taking out unnecessary steps.

    with regards

    thanks

    DeviceSetupManager Warnings Event Id. 200; 201; 202 & error id 1000 task (100)

    hi;

    I would like to share my experience regarding the above events and also put a query regarding an error.

    On my laptop these warnings Event Id. 200; 201; 202 were showing in large numbers even after clean install of windows 10. Then I came across strange behaviour; when I noticed that when you open “control panel” >> “devices and printers” and then
    press F5 or press Refresh; these event id. occurs in groups as many time you refresh it. Here in “control panel” >> “devices and printers” under printers following were shown; fax ; ms print to pdf; ms xps doc writer; and send to one note 2013 (the last one
    was shown after install of office 2013). Please note at that moment my real printer was not installed even once; so question of its being shown there does not arise.

    Then by chance I noticed that in “All Settings” (pressing “notification” icon near “time” on task bar shows “All Settings”)
    >> “Devices, Bluetooth, Printers and mouse” or you can say “settings” >> “devices”; there is shown “printers and scanners”.
    And 3 of my devices; “ms print to pdf”; “ms xps doc writer”; and “send to one note 2013” were shown under the head “printer” and a message under each of them telling that they are waiting for install (I don’t remember the exact message, as at that time
    I was not thinking that I will be writing all this.).

    Since my Wi-Fi connection is fixed one (metered with data limit); so I had put the
    “download over metered connections” to “off”. As my Wi-Fi internet was on; I put the button to “download over metered connections” to “on”.
    As I did that all three devices started getting updated. (I can’t say that if that behaviour would also occur if pc was offline; that is without internet connection; so better be online while putting that button to “on”). After that I just pressed
    “add Printer and Scanner”; but no new devices were added there. Then I found that under the heading “Connected Devices” there is same “download over metered connections” on/off button; which has gone automatically to “on” by one of my above actions. I pressed
    “Add a device” it took a minute; but since I have attached no device; so the message “no device found” shown. Under “other devices” nothing was shown as I have not attached any device; not even an usb pen drive. Now; I restart the pc; and found that all those
    event warnings were not appearing any more.

    Thinking that since all the devices are installed I put the above mentioned button “download over metered connections” to “off”.
    Now; I restart the pc; and found that all those event warnings were appearing again.
    In short; after all installations keep “download over metered connections” button to “on”; the warnings won’t appear.

    Now I inserted a usb pen drive and found those warning message appearing again. Now in “All Settings” (pressing “notification” icon near “time” on task bar shows “All Settings”)
    >> “Devices, Bluetooth, Printers and mouse” or you can say “settings” >> “devices”; there is shown “connected devices” and there under “other devices” my pen drive was shown, waiting for installation. I took out the pen drive; and switched
    on the Wi-Fi internet. I inserted usb pen drive and it started getting installed.
    Now; whenever I insert that pen drive; the warnings does not appear.

    But; afew things to note; that if on inserting of an installed usb device, installation again starts; then it means its old installation is conflicting in its complete setup. So; go to control panel, and open the “device manager”
    with administration right. There if needed make hidden devices visible; else uninstall concerned pen drive under “disk drives”; and under “portable devices”. but be sure that u r uninstalling right device. After that be sure that internet is active; and then
    insert the pen drive; it gets installed again. take out pen drive after installation (use of taskbar usb device icon “safely remove hardware” is recommended for safe removal.); and insert it again; if installation does not start again under “other devices”
    of “settings” >> “devices” then it means installation completes; else
    above uninstallation and installation steps to be repeated.

    Once correctly installed; the warning events stops on its insertion.

    Secondly; if the usb drive is bitlocked then don’t unlock it before installation. If installed in unlocked state; then when inserted in bitlocked state the warning events appears.
    Or same for vice versa; if you have installed it in bitlocked state and then inserted back in unlocked state (by using “turning on auto-lock” under bitlock options); then again warning events occur.

    I am using “automatic” setting under “system properties” >> “hardware” >> “device installation settings”. Also I have not disabled updates or metadata check under group policy.

    Warning:

    In my pc I noticed strange behaviour that when after all my above installations and warning messages has stopped; then under “control panel” >> “devices and printers” >> I pressed F5 or Refresh in the menu; then after that device page got refreshed;
    all my devices got reset and all the warning events began to occur again. In other words F5 or Refresh acting as Reset button for all devices to its original state. So; I have to go through above process again from the scratch. So pls. once warning events
    gone, don’t press refresh or f5 in that window. To check new devices and printers use “settings” >> “devices”.

    Secondly; the error that I m mentioning below was there even before I began the whole process; and is still here. In fact it has nothing to do with above process; but I stumbled upon it while using “control panel” >> “devices and printers”.
    Under the “printer” you select any option say “Fax”, the moment you select it, the bar above it shows u an option “manage default printers”. If you click this option the page opens; now whether you make any changes in there or not; now to close that
    page you got 3 options; press “OK” or Press “cancel” or pressing “X” to close the page. Whichever option u select explorer goes down for a fraction of a second and this error is generated:

    (“application error”) (event id 1000) (task
    100) & message:

    Event ID 200 201 202 DeviceSetupManager

    These errors are no big deal. They are most probably occurring during the shutdown or reboot process and are essentially caused by timing issues that window will automatically correct over time.
