  1. First of all, make sure you enable the display of hidden files and folders from Folder Settings.
  2. Go to C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Panther¬†and search for “CompatData”.
  3. Locate the latest xml file.
  4. Open the file and look for the incompatible program(s).

Uninstall the program(s) and restart your computer.

Before you retry the deployment, do the following:

  • Empty the SCCM Cache
  • Delete the content of C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder
  • Delete the C:\$WINDOWS.~BT folder (hidden)
  • Initiate a Software Update Deployment Evaluation Cycle and Software Update Scan Cycle
