    Version 1607 trying to update my Windows 10 Professional


    I have set my Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced options to "Defer upgrades". But, now I see in my Notifications that my computer is scheduled to Restart to install Version 1607. Has Microsoft overridden all users of Windows 10 Pro to install 1607 now?

    I'm seeing the same thing here - 2 latops with Pro and Defer Upgrades set have both started to download 1607 (or at least tried - I need to free up some disk space before it will succeed).

    Defer upgrades in Windows 10

    • Some Windows 10 editions let you defer upgrades to your PC. When you defer upgrades, new Windows features won’t be downloaded or installed for several months. Deferring upgrades doesn’t affect security updates. Note that deferring upgrades will prevent you from getting the latest Windows features as soon as they’re available.
    It's been 6 Months since 1607 was released and I think the defer time has elapsed.

    Yep.

    Definition of defer is to postpone or delay, not eliminate.

    The "several months" has passed.

    I can't remember the exact 1607 release date but I thought it tipped into August 2016? (Despite the name 1607.)

    August 2nd 2016. Version number 1607 (build 14393) is a bit (two days) misleading but due the name Anniversary Update it was made to correspond with original release version 1507 (build 10240), released on July 29th 2015.

    @Lou Svach, Welcome to TenForums.

    Defer updates is a delay, not a total block. You are effectively switching your machine from the Current Branch to the Current Branch for Business.

    1607 was released to the CBB on 29th Nov 2016, so can no longer be deferred.

    Thank you, Bree


    Your explanation sounds logical and I will accept the upgrade to version 1607.

    If you find it causes issues for you, you have just 10 days to go back to your earlier build, after that the windows.old folder is automatically removed to release disk space. This was reduced from 30 days to 10 with the Anniversary Update, Microsoft said their telemetry showed that virtually everyone who switched back would do so in the first few days.
