  • Hello,

    I have to say that we could not install WSUS role on Windows 10. Although we could install Hyper-v feature on Windows 10, and then create virtual machine in it, and then run Windows Server Operating System, but to use the Window Server, you may also need to buy a Windows Server license.

  • Hello Anto,

    I have to say the answer is no, you need Windows Server Licence as WSUS is a server role. We cannot install it on Windows Client.

    WSUS is a Server based product, not client based. It is not possible at all to install WSUS on a Client OS.

    You can alternatively use a 3rd party tool to patch multiple client machines without WSUS called http://www.wsusoffline.net/
