the Server Core App Compat FOD should be available to download with Patches
When trying to cook up an Image for our cloud deployments on Windows Server Core 20H2 with the Server Core App Compat FOD
we are starting with a Nov 2020 Patched windows Core SAC image, and then we are trying to add the App Compat FOD.
But after installing the App Compat FOD, the Get-updates want us to also reinstall the Nov 2020 15 GB patch
It seems that the installation of the App Compat FOD , installs old libraries , and then even if that OS is patched, now a new OS patch has to be installed.
this is a problem . because we are building new immutable images using Marketplace AMIs on AWS, and the building of the new AMI should now require that we use an OS patch , as we expect the OS patch to be in the base AMI.
rather than having this command "Add-WindowsCapability -Online -Name ServerCore.AppCompatibility~~~~0.0.1.0 "
one should be able to install the latest patched package using
Add-WindowsCapability -Online -Name ServerCore.AppCompatibility"
