Windows 10: Can semi-major updates be skipped

    Can semi-major updates be skipped


    I downloaded the tool to install Redstone II (version 1703) onto my computers, first I checked to see if any windows or app updates were needed, on my two computers that were used all the time , nothing was needed and used the tool to upgrade to Redstone II (version 1703).

    On my other two rarely used computers.. a windows update (version 1607, 10th anniversary update) was needed so I installed that first and then used the tool to install Redstone II.

    My question is, did I need to install windows update 1607 first or would it have not been needed and or included in the Redstone II update?

    Thanks

    No & no & yes. However, 1607 had some major changes & will not install on some machines. Therefore, if 1607 installs without issue, then 1703 should install without issue. Always best to make an image backup before any major update.

    Support for 1507 will be dropped in May.
