    Can someone please tell me how to uninstall Microsoft whiteboard modern app. Using ‘Remove-AppxPackage‘ brings the application back when the user logon again.
    Is it possible to uninstall it for every user?

    Thanks for your question Jessica. Its a coincidence that I’ve been working on an offline install which has ‘Uninstall’ steps for Microsoft Whiteboard. The below two lines work most of the times. 🙂

    Get-AppxPackage -Name "Microsoft.WhiteBoard" -AllUsers|Remove-AppxPackage -AllUsers
    Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online| Where-Object {$_.DisplayName -match "Microsoft.WhiteBoard"} | Select-Object -Property PackageName | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online

DCOM hardening issue.

This application fails to authenticate with WMI on the SCCM server because Microsoft has not yet hardened DCOM on their Windows Preinstallation Environment. We are working on a different approach, but it will only be released during the first quarter of 2024. But until that time, the only workaround will be to uninstall the update corresponding to KB5004442.
