VeraCrypt MSI Silent Installer

I noticed the native installer for VeraCrypt does not have an option for silent installation so I created an MSI Installer you can download here for it (version 1.22 at the moment). The package is only for 64-bit versions of Windows for now and has been tested on Windows 10 x64 and Windows 7 x64. It should also work with distribution software like SCCM.

To install the package silently use
msiexec.exe /i VeraCrypt.msi /qb

To silently remove the package use
msiexec.exe /x {E254AA9E-A48A-4A92-AF75-E6FF77C1A915} /qb

Citrix App Layering missing drivers

Edit 3 May 2018:
A solution/workaround to this issue has been found:

Add Version to the Platform Layer, run RegEdit, and create (or modify) this key, which must be a MULTI_SZ:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\unifltr]
“AlwaysOnBoot”

“AlwaysOnBoot” is a multi-string value with one path per line. Add these two lines to the value:

C:\Windows\Inf\
C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\

Make sure to end these lines with a trailing backslash!

Original post:

This issue occurs on Windows 7 x64 when the Office365 layer option is selected in the image template in conjuction with Elastic Layering and logging in as a user which has an elastic layer assigned, regardless of the contents of the elastic layer.

It can be confirmed by the command “pnputil -e”; In a normal published layered image there should be more than 30 drivers but when this issue happens there will only be about 9 (the same amount as in just the OS layer).

The solution is to disable either or both of these options or migrate to a different operating system.
