[:en]If you have deployed Windows 10 in your LAN for all your company’s workstations, you might have removed or deactivated all available universal apps in your Windows image because they seem to be unnecessary in an enterprise environment.

But at least one universal app is important for most people: The Windows Calculator has been converted from a desktop app to universal app.

By now and for this single app, deploying the Calc universal app seems to be tedious.

Fortunately, Winaero offers a desktop version of calc.exe which works with Windows 10.

Download from there


Here is a simple batch script you can use to distribute the “old” Win10 calculator to your domain workstations:

if exist %windir%\system32\calc1.exe goto :Finished


rem wait some seconds for network, then install
timeout 10
\\files\gposoftware\calc\oldCalcWin10.exe /S



Add it to your group policies, e.g. under Computer configuration -> Startup scripts.[:]
