Windows 10 Pro Version of Cumulative Updates

Hi All

Wonder if anyone can help - I have recently got into PDQ Deploy\Inventory and looking at using this to push out the update WSUS cant or wont apply but the main updates i need - Win 10 Cumulative 1609, 1703, 1709 etc do not include Windows 10 Pro?

Will this be included at some point or do i need to look into creating my own packages?! If that's the case, are there any scripts\parameters i need to use as i dont fully understand this area of the system.

Many thanks......

  • I'd recommend watching the PDQ videos on Youtube for getting started. You'll have to use the silent install parameters for any install packages you run otherwise they'll just hang until they abort.

    For a .msu the silent parameter is /quiet, and generally you probably want the /norestart parameter as well. A lot of the time, PDQ has your back and automatically puts those parameters in the Command Line section for you.

    Not familiar with Windows Pro, but are the cumulative updates actually any different? The updates they upload are basically the standalone installers from the Microsoft Update Catalog for the different feature versions of Windows 10.

  • Did you ever figure out why the Pro updates weren't successful?  I'm running up against the same issue.  For Enterprise it works w/o issue.  All of the Pro instances come back as "Update does not apply" even though they are missing the same updates.
