Upgrade Window 7 to Windows 10 via WSUS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've fully patched the WSUS server including update KB3095113.  The Upgrades classification is populating and all the windows 10 upgrades are listed.  The status of upgrade "Windows 7 and 8.1 upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, version 1511, 10586" is coming up computers installed/not applicable.  That is the correct upgrade for our environment, the update does not supersede any other updates.  Obviously I'm unable to push Windows 10 out via WSUS unless the status changes to needed.  Any suggestions?

  • Hi Annie Edison,

    1. Please check if the Windows 10 Pro, version 1511,10586 is downloaded successfully on WSUS server, if not, we need to add .esd MIME type to WSUS IIS;

    2. Check if WSUS clients report to WSUS server correctly;

    3. Try add registry key AllowOSUpgrade on client, check if it could work:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade, create DWORD AllowOSUpgrade, set value to 1.

    Besides, here is a post about general issue we might meet when upgrade to win10 via WSUS for your reference:


    Best Regards,
