Windows 10 1703 - PDQ Deploy

I'm having a hard time finding out if I can use PDQ to install/upgrade to 1703 on my Windows 10 machines.  All my machines currently have 1607, but I would like to test deploy 1703 to a couple.   I see (KB4015583) but is this the actual upgrade to 1703 or fixes for people that already have 1703.

  • It's great to hear that a simple cmd line makes so many admins happy :-).
    I haven't look into a 1803 upgrade yet, it's to early.

    But if someone use bitlocker read this blog: 

    1803 comes with a new command-line /Bitlocker


  • See if I can resurrect this thread. I'm trying to update many machines from a few different versions and everything seems to run until about the 30 minute mark and this happens

    Command script returned error code -2147024809 when using quiet parameter but just runs and runs with the above cmd..

    Watching the PC everything is running from the installer to updates then around 25-30 minutes this happens. Going to try to run it and get some logs...

    Any help is appreciated!

  • This works for us (going to 1803):

    Choose an install step and point the install file field to the setup.exe. Tick the include entire directory. Have this command line /auto upgrade /quiet /noreboot /ShowOOBE none /Compat IgnoreWarning /Telemetry Disable

    If you need a reference for the flags, check them - here

  • Just came across this thread and am testing it out in our environment. This is much simpler than what I was trying to do using MDT. See

    For those using this setup.exe method, I would encourage you to use OSBuilder from David Segura to automatically inject the latest SSU, LCU, and LSU into your install media. It'll save time for the patching process.


  • Has anyone tested this with 1809 update yet?

  • Watching... (Am also wondering about upgrading machines 1803->1809...)

  • I haven't had much luck upgrading from 1709 Pro to 1809 Pro. It times out. When running manually get an error that the /Auto switch isn't recognised.

    I need to spend some more time with this but it would be great if PDQ themselves created a package for upgrading....?

  • I have upgraded 4 1803 boxes to 1809 (pro) only issue i had was running Office apps for first time, Have to run them as administrator and also make sure user has access to C:\programdata\microsoft folder

    \\path\setup.exe /auto upgrade /quiet /migratedrivers all /ShowOOBE none /Compat IgnoreWarning /Telemetry Disable

    I set the time out to 180 minutes an let the install reboot if needed.

  • Has anyone tried this with the new 1903? Do we have to jump to 1803 before we can do 1903, or can we just skip 1803?

  • i am trying the upgrade a couple pcs to 1903 i cant get it to work error

  • setup enter image description here
