Provisioning Package (PPKG)
A provisioning package (.ppkg) is a container for a collection of configuration settings. With Windows 10, you can create provisioning packages that let you quickly and efficiently configure a device without having to install a new image.
Provisioning packages are simple enough that with a short set of written instructions, a student or non-technical employee can use them to configure their device. This can result in a significant reduction in the time required to configure multiple devices in your organization.
The ScanState command is used with the User State Migration Tool (USMT) 10.0 to scan the source computer, collect the files and settings, and create a store.
You can run the ScanState command in Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE). In addition, USMT supports migrations from previous installations of Windows contained in Windows.old directories. The offline directory can be a Windows directory when you run the ScanState command in WinPE or a Windows.old directory when you run the ScanState command in Windows.
