Upgrading Win10 machines to v.1607 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a few dozen Win10 laptops deployed which are running a mix of v.1507 and 1511 and would like to update them to 1607. We have upgrades turned off in WSUS as we also have a few dozen Win7 machines and don't want those machines being automatically upgraded to Win10. Is there a link to the Anniversary Update from which we can pull this down and manually install in onto those machines running v.1507 and 1511. (I assume this can be easily done from both prior versions).

    Thanks

  • Hi techrep43,

    If you only want to upgrade win10 1507 and 1511 clients to windows 1607, then we may assign these clients to one group, and only approve the upgrade to this group, win7 clients in other groups will not install the upgrade automatically.

    What more, the upgrade file for win7 and win10 clients are different, so we do not need to worry about win7 clients install the upgrade file automatically.

    Best Regards,

    Anne

  • Hi Anne, thank you for the reply.

    Could you also advise a link to where we can manually download the Win10 v.1607 upgrade in the event there are machines we would like to update manually. I assume both v.1507 and v.1511 clients can upgrade directly to v.1607.

  • Thank you, however I assume the "latest version" link will point to the Creator Update in a another week or two which we do not want to install at this time.

    Is there not a link that points us to the Anniversary Update specifically? When I search for it from the Microsoft catalog page I get over a thousand matches.

  • In a recent telephone conversation I was informed that there is a planned mid to late April update.

  • As mentioned previously I am simply looking for a link to download Anniversary Update. Searching the catalog returns over 1000 matches. Maybe I'm just not understanding the process. Is there not a specific upgrade file downloadable from Microsoft which will allow me to upgrade a Win10 Pro machine from either 1507 or 1511 to 1607?

  • The latest update is currently version 1607.  What changes on a regular basis is the build.  The latest build is 14393.969. 

    You can down load the windows 1607 onto a flash drive to create a windows 10 iso.   This iso will be frozen in time for all of your clean installs and repairs.  Only windows updates will change the version or the builds.
