DESCRIPTION

The Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage cmdlet removes app packages (.appx) from a Windows image. App packages will not be installed when new user accounts are created. Packages will not be removed from existing user accounts. To remove app packages (.appx) that are not provisioned or to remove a package for a particular user only, use Remove-AppxPackage instead.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Remove an app package from an image

PS C:\> Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Path c:\offline -PackageName MyAppxPkg

This command removes the app package (.appx), MyAppxPkg, from the Windows image that is mounted to c:\offline.

PARAMETERS

-LogLevel

Specifies the maximum output level shown in the logs. The default log level is 3. The accepted values are as follows:

  • 1 = Errors only
  • 2 = Errors and warnings
  • 3 = Errors, warnings, and information
  • 4 = All of the information listed previously, plus debug output
Type: LogLevel
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: LL
Accepted values: Errors, Warnings, WarningsInfo

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-LogPath

Specifies the full path and file name to log to. If not set, the default is %WINDIR%\Logs\Dism\dism.log. In Windows PE, the default directory is the RAMDISK scratch space which can be as low as 32 MB. The log file will automatically be archived. The archived log file will be saved with .bak appended to the file name and a new log file will be generated. Each time the log file is archived the .bak file will be overwritten. When using a network share that is not joined to a domain, use the net use command together with domain credentials to set access permissions before you set the log path for the DISM log.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: LP

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Online

Specifies that the action is to be taken on the operating system that is currently running on the local computer.

Aliases: 

Required: True

Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)

-ScratchDirectory

Specifies a temporary directory that will be used when extracting files for use during servicing. The directory must exist locally. If not specified, the \Windows\%Temp% directory will be used, with a subdirectory name of a randomly generated hexadecimal value for each run of DISM. Items in the scratch directory are deleted after each operation. You should not use a network share location as a scratch directory to expand a package (.cab or .msu file) for installation. The directory used for extracting files for temporary usage during servicing should be a local directory.
