Windows Deployment Services error 0xC107010C

Windows Deployment Services error 0xC107010C

Last week I had a remote SCCM distribution point with PXE where the WDS service could not start.

The event log showed this error:

All other Distribution points with PXE support was working as expected.

The reason behind the error showed out  to be a missing Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable as explained here:

Link1 and KB2712387

But why did the rest of the servers work?

Very simple answer – they all had VMware tools installed which was missing at the server with the error.

The latest VMware tools installs Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Smile
