    Windows 1703 pro and Windows Update for Business


    I have a Windows 10 pro 1703 desktop and i found update options in

    Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Advanced options

    to select between

    Configure devices for Current Branch (CB)

    Current Branch for Business (CBB)

    Device is on CB:
    DeferFeatureUpdatesPeriodinDays=30 Feature Update X is first publically available on Windows Update
    as a CB in January. Device will not receive update until February, 30 days later.

    Device is on CBB:
    DeferFeatureUpdatesPeriodinDays=30 Feature Update X is first publically available
    on Windows Update as a CB in January. Four months later, in April,
    eature Update X is released to CBB. Device will receive the Feature Update 30 days
    following this CBB release and will update in May.

    I found this feature would be really useful for my use case,

    now the ultimate question is:

    as a Windows 10 pro user am i entitled to use this "Windows Update for Business"
    or does this apply only to "volume license/corporate/enterprise" license?

    thanks for your help.
    Roy.

    Pen issues after the Fall Creator update

    If you use Win 10 pro. Go to settings > Update & Security. In windows update you can select advanced options. There you can choose current branch for business and defer feature updates up to 356 days. Changing those setting and 1703 will not update to 1709
    fall creators update for at least a year.

    Well.. CBB is for LTSB ... not sure how Pro gets it - Do you have a volume licence?

    If you want feature updates then switch, dunno why that option is available tho'?

    Do you mean that i am entitled to use the Current Branch for Business feature?

  12. Superfly Win User
    Yup.. if offered why not? ...

    MS may have changed the forced updates that's all.. the "for Business" may change to something else for non-Business users.

    Thanks Superfly for your help,

    i'll wait a bit before marking as solved, you seems to be taking a guess more than
    actually knoing for sure if my license is actually entitled to use such feature;
    forgive my skepticism but there are so many windows 10 versions/updates that
    i'm honestly very confused.

    If there is someone else that knows how the "Current Branch for Business"
    entitlement/availability works i kindly ask to step in or provide a microsoft
    doc/link to verify.

    Thanks again, Roy.

    The choice between CB and CBB offered in Creators Update for Pro was available in previous versions too, it's just that Microsoft didn't make it clear what was going on. It was called 'Defer feature updates' in 1607, but it had exactly the same effect, it switched you to the CBB so that feature updates (ie. an upgrade to the next version) would be deferred unit that version was on CBB. Now they explicitly spell out how 'defer feature updates' works, that's all.

    As far as I can figure CBB doesn't exist - they have renamed it yet again.

    This quote is from MS dated 2017-7-27 so who know what everything will be called next month but hopefully it may help some.
