Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Version 1709 Question

I was about to deploy the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (Version 1709) and was wondering if anyone that has deployed it has had any issues like end user complaints, programs no longer working or any reason I should wait before deploying it. Our environment is mainly Office 365 with some specialty programs for Finance and HR etc.,. Thanks!

- Windows 10 Pro x64

Upgrade one that has all programs and verify everything works, specially with software you want to test with one user before updating them all.

Yes, test first. I have it running myself and all most Windows 10 Client machines. Common software (Office, Adobe, QuickBooks, VMware, Zip tools, and so on) all work fine.

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I also have it running, and on some users.

One user complained that his local OneNote files could not be opened.  That was solved by moving the local OneNote files out of the OneNote folder (strange but true).

One user had a touch keyboard popup at every login, even though he had no touchscreen. That was solved by disabling the "TabletInput Service" in service.msc.

Other than that, i have had no complains, or experienced any problem myself.

Do you happen to use the DMA Port protection GPO? If so, it's incompatible with 1709 due to a bug.

My One Note files are in the same main folder as my personal Office (Word and Excel) files and V1709 did not affect this.

I don't have any Windows 7 card games on my Windows 10 machine.
i installed them John, and i fail tyo see why an update should touch other files than the OS

I do not use DMA Port protection but that is good to know.

For those that deployed it with WSUS, did it automatically install or did the users have to run the install from Windows Updates (Install Now)?
