One of the things I’ve seen recently is that systems are being powered on out of the box the and it might have an older Microsoft Teams Room App version. Since version 188.8.131.52, there is a block in place to prevent Windows Build 1909 from being installed. Windows build 1909 is going through testing and evaluation with Microsoft at present. Once it is certified, this table will be updated.
So what’s the point of this blog post. Well if you let a system connected to the Internet with 184.108.40.206 build and it gets Windows Updates first, then it will pull down 1909 and bork your MTR. Not a good place to be in. However, there is a simple fix. Just disable Windows Update. To do this you can follow these steps. Power on the system without it being connected to the Internet.
Step One – Exit the Out of Box experience
Step Two – Sign in to the Windows Admin Desktop Side
Step Three – Enter Windows Settings
Step Four – Windows Updates Advanced Settings
Step Five – Disable Windows Updates
Step Six – Open the Microsoft Store
You can now connect the device to the internet and proceed.
Step Seven – Get Windows Store Updates
Make sure you have all updates done. Note you will not see the Microsoft Teams Rooms app.
Step Eight – Reboot
Now you will see that it has updated the MTR app and will have the 1909 block in place.
Step Nine – Sign into the MTR
Step Ten – Re-enable Windows Updates
Now turn this off and you can reboot/sign out and back to the Skype account and let the MTR take care of the updates as per this guide.
Any comments, let me know.
