    Ok, thank you for the tutorial.

    However as far as I understand 2 (!) steps are required.

    At first I defined which version should be the next Win10 release to (download and install).
    Secondly, the user must somehow trigger the feature update

    How do I tell Win10: "Hey current Win10 update NOW to the Win10 version I just specified"?

    Furthermore I wonder whether there is no target Win10 value = "next" (whatever it is).
    As you know Win10 feature update normally updates always to the newest Win10 which is normally not the next Win10 version.

    So I need a way to only jump 1 step forward in release history.

    Do users really have to specify the target version always manually?

    Hello mate,

    Usually, you would only want to specify a target feature update version if you either want to stay on the current version to avoid updating to the next version until the current version reaches end of service, or if you wanted to directly update to a specific higher available version than currently installed. You would just need to check for updates after specifying a higher version than currently installed to update to it.

    Otherwise, you would update to the next available version when made available as usual via Windows Update.

    Works fine, but affects .net updates!
    After setting TargetReleaseVersion/ProductVersion/TargetReleaseVersionInfo I only got the last CU which contained security updates installed.
    In the case of 2004/20H2 this is currently KB4601050 (02-2021).
    After deleting the setting I got immediately the latest CU (KB5004331 (08-2021)).

    That seems odd as TargetReleaseVersionInfo is normally a string while they have:
    “TargetReleaseVersionInfo”=dword:00002212

    Update 11-2021: Still no .net update for WUfB:
    2004 + 20H2 still only receives the 02-2021 update (KB4601050) and 21H1 remains on 05-2021 (KB4601554).
    There is not any kind of "opt-in for .net updates for WUfB" - right?

    It appears that this policy does not work in Home editions. I certainly can't use it to stop 10 Home checking for Windows 11 compatibility.

    Update/TargetProductVersion
    Edition Windows 10 Windows 11
    Home No No
    Pro Yes Yes
    Business Yes Yes
    Enterprise Yes Yes
    Education Yes Yes

    Scope:
    • Device


    Available in Windows 10, version 2004 and later. Enables IT administrators to specify which product they would like their device(s) to move to and/or stay on until they reach end of service or reconfigure the policy to target a new product.

    Correct. This policy will not work for Home editions.

    Hello Matthew,

    If you mean for Windows 11 compatibility, then usually you will see compatibility info on the Windows Update page in Settings.
