    Greetings,

    Thanks to contributor @GOD666 with his tutorial, I was able to successfully install the Windows Store in LTSB 2016 edition.

    Now, in my quest of trying to find a way on how to add Microsoft Edge, after googling and reading there and there, I found out this thread (virtualcustoms.net/showthread.php/72904-Install-Microsoft-Store-and-Apps-on-Windows-10-LTSB-2016) by user dhjohns, with a script to add the browser.

    Sadly, it only works on x64 editions, but even though, last week I borrowed a 64-bit computer from a friend and I wasn't able to install it. Wish I could post the complete error log, but it had something to do with: a Manifest file not being in the root folder even though I had checked and it was there.

    The objective of this thread is to ask the experts if they could at least try audit the script and to find the flaws. And I would be very grateful if you could also write a script compatible with x86 editions.

    Best regards y'all,

    Sorry for any English misspellings. Should I advise you that I'm no programmer but I'm an intermediate dealing with computers and I can follow directions very well (just in case).

    Maybe GOD666 can "make" a new tutorial for it?

    Thanks for sharing!

    At first I didn't figure exactly what to do with these files other than double-clicking on the .bat files. Then, after learning the errors, I realised I'd copy the language folder and the .cab file into the system32 folder and that worked halfway, until I came across 2 errors.

    One inside the cmd:

    Code:
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.14393.0

    [==========================100.0%==========================]
    The operation completed successfully.

    ERROR: Access is denied.
    
    Please let Windows Update apply cumulative update to Microsoft Edge before use.
    
    Press any key to exit...

    And other when trying to import the registry file:

    Code:
    Cannot import C:\Users\...\x86.reg: Error accessing the registry.

    I'm not sure but I think it has something with permissions? I made sure I was running both files with as Administrator, but still no avail.

    You only need to run the Install.cmd in the root folder, don't run the another one inside the bin folder directly.

    That's what I first did but the cmd window closes so quickly that I couldn't read what was going on.

    And no sign of Edge installed. :(

    Now the code went through its final stage where it launches Windows Update, checks for updates and confirmed that my system is up to date. Still no sign of Edge on the Start Menu.

    Refrain from what I previously said.

    I restarted the computer, updated the system and it's so far so good.

    Thank you very much. Much appreciated, comrade.
