Do you support all Windows 10 servicing branchs? 

Current Branch (CB) 

Current Branch for Business (CBB) 

Long-Term Servicing Branch (LTSB) 

We are evaluating the possibility to switching from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 CBB. So, approximately each 6 months a new version of Windows 10 will be installed. Will CA Gen be able to follow this course of action ?


Gen Product Management decided that we would support Windows 10 service branches in the same manner that we support Microsoft Service Packs. The Microsoft Service Pack Support information (below) is documented in the Gen Technical Requirements. 


Microsoft Service Pack Support 

We no longer certify Microsoft service packs for those Microsoft products listed as certified in the CA Gen Technical Requirements. These products include supported Microsoft operating systems, databases, Visual Studio and Internet Explorer. Should problems arise, we will provide fixes as necessary to ensure that CA Gen 8.6 works correctly with the Microsoft service packs. This automatic certification applies only to service packs, not major product releases.
