    Sorry, I can't find the 1903 version of the installation package.

    It doesn't seem to work very well.
    The volumes deduped on Win Server 2016 with virtual machines on them don't work on Windows 10 v1903 with dedup packages installed from previous posts.
    Once you access a VM disk (tried with vmdk) it throws a BSOD error related to dedup.sys driver.

    Both machine are having the latest patches.

    I don't have that issue, been deduping on NTFS and ReFS on my system using VM's, no BSOD with 1903.

    It's working fine here. No problems accessing dedup'd volumes from Enterprise 1903 or Server 2019 1809.

    Have you deduped those volumes using Win Server 2016 and then mount them to Win 10 Ent. 1903?
    This is what i've done and the Win 10 1903 OS crushed.

    Backwards compatibility might be unsupported; although i didn't find any information regarding this limitation.

    I don't currently use Server 2016. It could be a compatibility issue but like you, I couldn't find any information to confirm my suspicions.

    Hi.
    Hope i do not ask what someone has already asked before, but is Windows 10 Enterprise a requirement, or could you use Windows 10 Pro as well?

    It should work in any SKU but I can't say that with 100% certainty as I don't use Pro or any SKU's other than Enterprise and Server. I am however 100% certain that installing it will do no harm, whether it works or does not.

    It works on Pro for Workstations and ReFS.

    If you have problems with installing the dedup packages as I had on 1903 error 50 I think remove the packages and reinstall

    remove

    dism /online /remove-package /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-VdsInterop-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1.cab /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-VdsInterop-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1-en-US.cab
    dism /online /remove-package /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-FileServer-ServerCore-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1.cab /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-FileServer-ServerCore-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1-en-US.cab
    dism /online /remove-package /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-Dedup-ChunkLibrary-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1.cab /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-Dedup-ChunkLibrary-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1-en-US.cab
    dism /online /remove-package /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-Dedup-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1.cab /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-Dedup-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1-en-US.cab

    Reinstall

    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-VdsInterop-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1.cab /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-VdsInterop-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1-en-US.cab
    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-FileServer-ServerCore-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1.cab /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-FileServer-ServerCore-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1-en-US.cab
    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-Dedup-ChunkLibrary-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1.cab /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-Dedup-ChunkLibrary-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1-en-US.cab
    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-Dedup-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1.cab /packagepath:Microsoft-Windows-Dedup-Package-amd64-10.0.18362.1-en-US.cab
    dism /online /enable-feature /featurename Dedup-Core /all

    Anyway worked for me...

    Nah you got caught up by the forum software smilies feature because you didn't post the commands between code tags. Like so...

    [code]blah blah blah, yada yada yada, blah blah blah[/code]

    Would produce...

    Code:
    blah blah blah, yada yada yada, blah blah blah
