    Tnx for the info! The patch will arrive too late for most people. If it wasn’t done on purpose, it was a stupidity of gigantic proportions. It cost me and others huge amounts of time. Still very angry and actively looking at Mac’s. Also not perfect, but still much more reliable then this Windows-junk. Incredible.

    Microsoft now admit, that users with their PC set to defer upgrade to 1709 by being on CBB, are getting it anyway.

    Another argument for setting updates to Notify (apparently not possible with Home now)- so you have to approve it. I avoided one update to 1703 a while back before I was ready for it because of that.

    And how do you know t will not "upgrade unexpectedly", what i read is:

    "Windows Pro devices on the Current Branch for Business (CBB) will upgrade unexpectedly."

    do not see your solution proposed as a work around, but we sure can set updates to Notify and hope

    Perhaps you are not familiar with 'Notify' - available e.g. via a tutorial and group policy and Winaero's tweaker.
    Means you get a notification of a pending update via the Action Centre.
    Click on that, Settings opens, showing you the pending update(s).

    When you approve that, the update(s) downloads.

    I had exactly that happen with Defer Feature Updates set in build 1607, and after quite some months, 1703 was offered before I wanted it. I did not accept it and extended the period for which Defer Feature Updates applied using the Group Policy Editor.

    Hope with all that detail that's clearer, with a specific example of not accepting an upgrade?

    Currently on 1703 with CBB set, not been offered 1709, thankfully, yet.

    What i mean is that given the behavior is unexpected it may also ignore the group policy settings (gpedit ?).
    I do not use any tweaker.
    My system is on CBB, not offered 1709, unexpectedly?, luckily? IDK, too much confusion.

    Oh, thanks for the explanation

    Is that PC setup to use, Windows Update for Business . Doesn't that have to be setup for this to work?

    Hi, i do not understand what PC you are referring to, the problem is that a 1703 windows 10 pro
    can unexpectedly upgrade to 1709, despite the settings so that your settings are somehow "ignored";
    i do not think there is much you can do with settings AFAIK.

    The one setup to use "current branch for business". I do believe there is more involved than just running Pro to make use of it. I'll have to read up on it again myself.

    EDIT: Did a quick Google search, looks like I got it wrong, must have been thinking of LTSB. Disregard and carry on.
