    Windows 10 Creators Update - silent installation


    After Microsoft pushes the Windows 10 Creators update, is it then possible to make de installation silent?
    I've tried de manual update, but you'll get the 'Welcome to Windows 10!' screen...

    The reason I want to do this, is because I've got a lot of customers with Win 10 and automatic updates on. A program will start up on boot and the focus needs to be on this. I'm afraid that when the creators update is installed the program won't be show because of the welcome screen...

    Anybody got any ideas on this?

    Steps For Silennt installation
    1) Download ISO File
    2) Mount ISO File
    3) Call Setup.exe with silent switch (/auto upgrade /quiet).
    Example H:\setup.exe /auto upgrade /quiet

    How are you triggering this program? Task scheduler? Autostart entry?

    From your description of the program "being in focus" it sounds like you mean at log on rather than at startup. In task scheduler these two triggers act the same (at log on) unless you've enrolled the user to run batchjobs which doesn't sound the case here as batch jobs don't display to the screen so can't get focus. In Task Scheduler what is the difference between “at logon” and “at startup”? - Super User

    For me programs starting at log on acted normally after the "Getting things ready" screen but you'd have to test it I guess.

    This program is in the startup folder of Windows 10 (C:\Users\%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup).

    So it's 'At log on' for a specific user. There's broadcasting software on it for advertisement etc.
    But thanks for the info, I'm gonna make a new testing environment. Are pushed updates always silent?
