Microsoft Edge Application creation fails in SCCM

If you have recently attempted to create new Edge application in SCCM, it fails with error Failed to download artifact. You see this at the final step of Microsoft Edge client installation wizard.

You are not the only one to see this error because the issue is not with SCCM rather it is with the Install-Edge.ps1 PowerShell script.

Checking the PatchDownloader.log reveals a successful download of Edge application. That’s true since we see the Microsoft Edge msi application downloads successfully. However in the next step you will see the actual error.

On the progress page of Microsoft Edge client installation wizard, you will see the error. Failed to download artifact and the URL of Edge msi along with the version.

If the Edge application creation fails in SCCM with error failed to download artifact, here is what you can do to fix it.

You can download the updated version of Install-Edge.ps1. With this script, you can successfully download Edge application and deploy it using SCCM.

Note – This script is only intended for computers with the Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager, version 1910 console installed. This issue will be fixed in SCCM 2002 current branch slow ring release.

First of all close the Configuration Manager console before you make further changes.

Backup the existing Edge installation script. Go to %Configuration Manager console installation directory%\bin\scripts\Install-Edge.ps1. Copy and save that script elsewhere.

Next, delete the old Install-Edge.ps1 script from the scripts folder. In my testing, when I tried to copy and replace the new script, I got the Access denied error.

Now download the latest Install-Edge.ps1 and copy it to scripts folder.

Launch the Configuration Manager console and go to Software Library > Overview > Microsoft Edge Management.

Right click Microsoft Edge Management and click Create Microsoft Edge Application. Follow the steps in the wizard and you should now see no errors while creating Edge Application.

I hope this post helps.

  1. i have this error in 2002, this script did not fix this for me in 1910 and they have not fixed the issue in 2002

    1. I was having the same problem, too, but I figured out that you have to copy the new script to the path on the specific machine from which you are running the Admin Console. In my case, I am running the Admin Console from a different PC, rather than the Site Server itself. Once I did this, it worked. I hope this helps anyone else having the problem.

      1. Yeah I have done as you did as Im using the admin console on another machine to the site server. It didnt fix it in my case. I still have the issue with 1910.

  2. Updated the PS script with the one from the link. Unfortunately I’m still getting the error. Any updates on what the issue could be?

  3. Hi Prajwal,
    I downloaded the script provided by you but the issue remains the same. When I am checking the location of the content, it shows the x64 msi file there but does not show x86 msi file. The error I am getting is also for x86 file. Please help.

  4. I’m running version 2002 and still have this error. Are there any other solutions?

    1. me too 🙁

  5. Thank you!
