Windows 10: Win 10 Updates from My PC
Win 10 Updates from My PC
I"m having trouble finding information on how to receive Windows 10 updates from "My PC"
I have 2 identical machines, both run Widows 10 Pro, the second machine isn't a daily user basically it just has the OS installed and antivirus software. I like to keep both machine updated. To save bandwidth I have tried updating the second machine by checking receive updates from My PC. To date I have been unsuccessful.
I have a modem/router with 4 local Ethernet ports, I connect the second PC the the modem local Ethernet port but it obtains the current updates form MS Server, not my primary PC which is updated automatically.
Do I require a crossover DSL cable to update the second machine off line?
I would appreciate any help.
Have you turned on Updates from more than one place in Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Advanced options > Choose how updates are delivered?
Kari Thanks for your reply. Yes both PCs are selected ON and selected PCs on my local network. I'm thinking I may have to use an Ethernet crossover cable and try updating the second PC OFF line?
That will most probably not work.
At the moment I have nothing to suggest, let's hope other members will see this thread and come with other ideas.
I have never been able to get it to work either. Seems like all of my PCs pull the updates from the Internet rather than other PCs available on my home network.
I believe this was only enabled quite recently in Insider Build 14195.
So I suspect it won't work in 'Regular' Anniversary Update or earlier builds until the next big feature update, which I think isn't until
Improving app and update downloads in Windows 10 with Delivery Optimization
Starting today, Windows Insiders that have Delivery Optimization enabled will be able to download new Insider Preview builds, OS updates, and app updates from other PCs on their local network as well as from other PCs on the Internet.

Reason: Corrected typo in year
I've understood it will be March 2017, following current version name policy probably version 1703.
Yes that's my understanding too. However my typing wasn't good enough to reflect that!
After installing the Anniversary Update, I checked some of the Windows Update settings. I found that the "Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows" is now unchecked and further more it is also grayed out so I cannot recheck...
