    Windows 10 for SL 2015 CU1.  I am unable to install the clientsetup.exe using command line prompts.  I have tried everything that I can think of.  I have disabled the mapped network drives. Remapped them using the command line Net Use. I get a directory is invalid

    Are you in an administrator CMD prompt?  I would try that first.  If you weren't, then ClientSetup.exe may be elevating when it starts with Windows asking if it can make changes to your computer.  When that happens, you may be changing user context so that the net use is not there for the new admin user.  So if you're logged in as UserA and it elevates to user Admin, your net use command is under UserA, not Admin so ClientSetup won't see the mapped drive.

    Hope that helps!

    Yes, I selected Run as Administrator upon opening.
