More Information

Note If the BranchCache feature is enabled on the site server that's hosting the package content, the content transfer from the distribution point to the client will continue to fail even after this update is applied. In this situation, errors that resemble the following are recorded in the ContentTransferManager.log file on the client:

Failed to decrypt C:\Windows\ccmcache\{package_filename}

To work around the issue, disable the BranchCache feature on the site server computer that's associated with CloudDP, and then re-update the content on CloundDP.
