If you still haven’t downloaded the hotfix, you can do so here.What do you think of the Microsoft OS upgrade plan?

It can be replaced with Microsoft Update, an expanded version of the service which provides for other Microsoft software as well, such as Microsoft Office, Windows Live Essentials and Microsoft Expression Studio.Even though the update is a technically a hotfix, the WSUS team states, “We have tested it the same as we would any Windows Update release, so there is no reason to wait to install the update on your WSUS 4.0 servers.” Personally, I would install it regardless of current Windows 10 deployment plans.This bit of prevention can save you a headache later.Windows Vista and later provide a Control Panel to configure update settings and check for updates.The Windows Update Control Panel also has the function of downloading Windows Ultimate Extras, optional software for Windows Vista Ultimate Edition.To quote the WSUS product team blog, “WSUS [4.0] may be able to see the Windows 10 1511 feature upgrade even if it can’t properly download and deploy the associated packages.”If a WSUS administrator checked the Upgrades classification under Product and Classifications without having this hotfix installed, the WSUS database would be populated with unusable data.

In order to deploy upgrades in the future, this data would need to be removed.

Windows 10 completely changed the traditional wipe and reload method for OS upgrades by releasing regular feature upgrades.

These upgrades are not your simple monthly updates or combined cumulative updates.

If you are running an earlier version of WSUS, you technically don’t have to worry about this, as Microsoft will not support these feature upgrades on those older WSUS versions. Regular patch Tuesday security updates (and the like) will still be deployable by these older versions of WSUS for the Windows 10 operating system.

As discussed above, KB 3095113 adds the components (and classification) needed to deploy future feature upgrades.

The first major update, Windows 10 1511, will be released to WSUS within two weeks.
