    Windows 10 Home not connecting to intranet WSUS


    Anyone know if the Windows Update client for Windows 10 Home is limited in any way compared to Windows 10 Pro and Windows 7?

    The usual 3 registry keys:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
    "WUServer"="http://<intranetserver>"
    "WUStatusServer"="http://<intranetserver>"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
    "UseWUServer"=dword:00000001

    Work fine for Windows 10 Pro, but Home seem to completely ignore them, and insist on only contacting the Microsoft servers.

    Anyone know of a fix/workaround to make the Home edition connect to an intranet WSUS server?

    I believe i've got a not-so elegant workaround , using WUInstall to get the Win10 Home machines to at least pull their needed patches from the WSUS datastore.. even if they don't actually register themselves into the WSUS Database. (or should i say , WUInstall reports that is where its getting the patches from.. in reality it could still be going to MS for them.) (would probably need to setup a packet capture to know for sure.)

    I think some extra checking is needed for this.
    I ran WUInstall with the /search parameter and the displayed text showed that it should have been looking for my WSUS server (as set in my registry settings) - but it also showed available patches that were not on my WSUS server.
    i.e. it showed a "Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB2267602 (Definition 1.205.797.0)" while (Definition 1.205.789.0) has not even been approved yet and (Definition 1.205.797.0) does not even appear after doing a synchronise on the server.
    This implies that WUInstall is still going to the Windows Update site rather than WSUS.

    However when I used the /use_wsus switch to manually specify my WSUS server it did not show the extra updates.

    Unfortunately the default "always download patches" feature of Home stays in place which will continue to go to the Windows update site rather than the WSUS server.

    For myself an annual fee of USD$290 just to do a few Home editions of Win10 is just too much.
    So while this particular tool doesn't suit me it does indicate that it is somehow possible
