Microsoft recommends that users do not manually install Windows 10 Creators Update temporarily


Two weeks ago, Microsoft began rolling out the Windows 10 Creators Update. John Cable, director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery, said users should not manually install the Creators Update temporarily, but should wait until the Windows 10 Creators Update is automatically offered in the Windows blog On April 25th.

The reason is that the update may cause trouble to some users. The first phase of Creators Update rollout targets newer devices. Because Microsoft plans to fully run the operating system with the latest configuration and use the feedback of update experience to help them decide when it’s time to begin the next phase of the rollout.

John Cable explained that Microsoft is blocking availability of the update to devices they know may experience issues.

And also John Cable informed that Microsoft decides what to block based on user impact. During the time it takes to address an issue, they want to limit the number of customers exposed to that issue. For example, the feedback process identified a Bluetooth accessory connectivity issue with PCs that use a specific series of Broadcom radios, ultimately resulting in devices not reconnecting as expected. Once identified, they posted this issue to Windows community forum, provided user guidance on troubleshooting, and blocked additional devices with these specific Bluetooth radios from updating. Once a solution is available, Microsoft will update their forum post and remove the block.

Microsoft has not explicitly banned users manually installing the Creators Update, but if the user does so, he/she should know that it may encounter some problems which cannot be solved. Therefore, everyone should think twice before manually installing Windows 10 Creators Update.
