Configuration Manager Software Centre Fix

An error was identified when opening up the Configuration Manager Software Centreā€¦

‘Software Centre can not be loaded. There is a problem loading the required components for Software Centre’

This error resulted in the user being unable to install any software or run the Windows 10 In-Place upgrade Task Sequence. The original workaround was to add the PC to a Legacy software centre collection.

We have now identified what the issue is and the fix is deployed via a group policy so there is no user impact.

The Advanced Configuration Manager Software Centre will then become available, once the fix is applied.


19/03/18. – The GPO containing the fix will be deployed to the Desktops and Laptops that have already exhibited the issue.

22/03/18 – The GPO will be applied to the Staff Windows 7 and Win Service in order to prevent further issues.
